The Faerie Guardian – Rachel Morgan
Title: The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow #1)
Author: Rachel Morgan
My rating: ★★★✫✫
I got a review copy of Creepy Hollow – Violet’s Story via Ebooks for Review for an honest review. This omnibus contains the first three parts of the Creepy Hollow series. Since I will join Paperback Summer I have decided to take a break from these series for now and read some paperbacks first and therefore I will review the first part of the series already.
What the book is about
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.
What I think about the book
I really love fantasy stories, but I am not so sure about this one. There is nothing wrong with the female main character Violet. She is just your usual kick ass heroine. Still the book didn’t really get to me as those kind of series usually do.
I found the plot of this book quite chaotic. Events were happening rather quickly and sometimes it felt more like a list of what was happening in Violet’s life than an actual story. There was just too much going on and I was missing quite a few details. I think with all that was going on, Rachel Morgan could have written at least three books about Violet.
So even though the story has a certain potential and it is certainly not all bad, it didn’t become my favorite at all. I am wondering if I should go on to the second part of the series. Will it get better or worse? Since many people seem to love it so much, I think I am willing to give it a try.
