The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow Book 1)

**A 2014 Readers' Favorite GOLD MEDAL WINNER in YA Fantasy**

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 glamour 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 of it alive.

[This title can be purchased as part of Creepy Hollow: Violet's Story, a boxed set of books one, two & three.]

When a story becomes a source of addiction I like to call it the Rachel Morgan Effect. Sounds cheesy doesn't it? Well, that is the type of allure Faerie Guardian has to offer. It's one of those books that have me scanning the pages when I already know it has ended. The execution of the prose is flawless and entrancing.  The talent it must have taken to piece together what seemed to have been mundane aspects at the beginning into an epic plot line is staggering.  The depth of the emotions and the dynamic visuals draw forth an intensity that I now crave when I read. It's fine, it's fast-paced,  uses a lot of imagination and is entirely clean for the young adult audience.  I adore the direction Morgan took with the protagonists.  It may have been unexpected,  but it was absolutely perfect. This series is a rare gem for which very few books I've discovered could ever compete. She's a best-selling author for a reason and this is the series I try to shove down the throats of anyone who loves an amazing journey. 

I read the series in a day and half on no sleep. Faerie Guardian is immediately addicting. The twists are thorough. The romance is savored with every word. This is a series I have read time and again, and it will forever brand me a Rachel Morgan fan. I've suggested her work to all of my friends, families, and co-workers. None have disliked it. Not one! I can't imagine any who wouldn't praise the fantastic creativity brought to life.
 5+++++ Stars
