Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is just weeks away from one of the most important occasions of her life: graduation. After messing up big time by bringing a human into the fae realm, Vi needs to step up her game and forget about Nate if she hopes to graduate as the top guardian of her year. Everything would be fine if she wasn’t forced to partner with Ryn, her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current ‘sort of friend’. They might be trying to patch up their relationship, but does she really want to spend a week undercover with him for their final assignment? On top of that, the possibly insane Unseelie Prince is still on the loose, free to ‘collect’ as many specially talented faeries as he can find—and Vi is still at the top of his list. Add in faerie queens, enchanted storms, complicated not-just-friends feelings, and a murder within the Guild itself, and graduation is about to become the least of Vi’s problems.

“It feels like I’ve been lost in the desert for many years, and … I’ve finally come home.”

You know that feeling when everybody seems to love a series according to rating the series gets… but you just don’t? That me with Creepy Hollow.

I have said it before and I’ll say it again: a book filled with action isn’t for me. I could like a book with a lot of it as long as there’s characters and romance that compel me to actual read the book. That wasn’t case with this one.

I love Violet. She’s very kickass and while she can make stupid decisions, she’s also more mature than me in some situations. I also preferred her love interest a lot more to the one in The Faerie Guardian. But still I just didn’t connect to the romance? Part of it could be because they were friends most of the book but I just didn’t feel them having feelings for each other, you know?

“If you upset the Seelie Queen, she might start shrieking, ‘Off with their heads!’.” The four of us stare at him. He stares back. “What? It’s . . . from a book. Never mind.”

All in all I had to force myself a bit to keep reading and I wouldn’t say it trickered me (because that’s serious) but I felt very sad about how much the author decided to add abandonment it the sequel. I still have both of my parents alive but I live alone and could relate to the main character’s loneliness since I basically have no friends, either.

The cliffhanger made me want to know what happens next but I don’t want to read it unless I someday found it free in kindle.
