Review: The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan
Publishers: Rachel Morgan
Published: October 27th, 2012
Enter a hidden world of magic, mystery, danger and romance in this YA fantasy from Amazon bestselling author, Rachel Morgan...
Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day’s work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone—she’s about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until a cute human boy who can somehow see through her faerie glamor follows her into the Fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.
The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the Fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot—and it’ll take all her training to get out alive.
Special thanks to Elana Johnson for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
This is part of the special 10 book boxed set "Girls On Fire" which can be found here - I highly recommend getting the set while it's only $0.99 for 10 ebooks!
I was very excited to read this - it sounds like a perfect fit to what I like to read and I was right! There was some awesome action, fae, a crazy cool love triangle and some magic, mystery - a little bit of everything.
Violet has a reputation to protect as best of the class so it majorly sucks when she gets in trouble because Nate follows her into the land of the Fae. Rule #1 broken, and she didn't even do anything!
Either way, there's just something about Nate that Violet can't resist and soon she's breaking more rules than she bargained for.
All the while she's dealing with Ryn, short for Oryn, who has a huge grudge against her for something that happened in the past. Ryn can't cope with his grief so, who does he blame it all on? Violet. But, when Ryn needs her help he's singing a different tune.
After that there's lots of betrayal, broken hearts, near death experiences and lots of surprises and plot twists. I can't WAIT to read Creepy Hollow #2, I'm firmly team Ryn! I think he may be a jerk sometimes, but grief makes even the best of us act like idiots.
I recommend this for anyone who likes faeries, action, adventure, and love triangles (even though there's no contest - RYN!)
