REVIEW - The Faerie Guardian, Creepy Hollow #1

Title: The Faerie Guardian, Creepy Hollow #1
Author: Rachel Morgan
Release Date: October 2012
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Time Took to Read: Roughly 5 hours

Synopsis: Found on Goodreads.
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.

5 out of 5 stars

General Impression
The Faerie Guardian is amazingly fast paced, written in such a way that I could relax while reading it, and left me loving Violet and Ryn.

Favorite Quote:
"“Do you mean to tell me that I’m the only one you bestow your delightful insults upon? I’m touched.”

Let me begin by saying that I love the cover of this book. It is what initially drew me in. I will be honest and say that I looked at the cover, looked at the goodreads genres it contained, and hit the 'Buy now with 1-click' button without reading what I was getting myself into. Such a terrible confession right? But I am glad that I did it!

I have a thing for books that are fast paced, and this book, starts out with a bang. Instantly in a fighting scene! I loved it. Never once was there a dull moment, and I kind of didn't want to stop reading. In fact, I had to go to the restroom about seventy percent of the way through and refused to do so. So that's saying something.

While I am not usually a big fan of reading books on the computer - I don't own a kindle so I use the kindle for PC option - this was one book I would read again despite this little hiccup.

The characters, especially Violet and Ryn, were realistic. They had their quirks, their mood swings, and their wonderful snarky moments. Unfortunately for mister Nate, I am in love with Ryn. He's so much fun, and I have a thing for male characters who are jerks. So, Nate was overshadowed by him.

This is a book that I would definitely recommend reading, and hey, it's currently free on amazon! What have you got to lose? Give it a try! Go, go, go!
