Review: The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan

The Faerie Guardian
Creepy Hollow #1
Rachel Morgan
Genre: YA Paranormal, Faeries
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.
I got the opportunity to read this book through Xpresso Reads. So thank you Giselle and to the author, Rachel Morgan.

I almost DNFed this book. I was around that part where Violet was delving into some sort of relationship with Nate and I just thought that everything was happening too fast between them to warrant such feelings that I had to stop at the utter ridiculousness of it.

I put off reading the rest of it for weeks and weeks because if that ridiculousness continued then I would be forced to find a replacement for my iPad. However, there were a number of reviews I've seen of the later books in the series that rated four to five stars and where they expressed their excitement about them. I then wondered whether things get better... because of course I sometimes have this insane criterion of judging a book by its romance aspect.

And I did get to finish the rest of the book although I had to start at the beginning and suffer through the Nate phase again before dealing with the betrayal. It stung of course but I also made a sigh of relief that the Nate stuff was over and Violet concentrated on her becoming an exemplary guardian trainee so she could graduate on top. When Ryn fully came into play then I made a bigger sigh of relief because I could feel the tension in the air...

Rachel Morgan, it was a quite a good book and I enjoyed the fae culture you've woven in this story, so much so that I am already three-fourths in the sequel, The Faerie Prince and I like it even better than the first one.
