   Synopsis

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.

paragraph divider 18***Cianna, #NerdGirlSunshine’s Review***

AH! I love love faeries! I do, I’ve read book after book, YA, NA, all genres about them, because the fair folk are so interesting, and there’s just so much you can do in that world, so many doors to open, and I have to say Rachel Morgan blew me away. I picked up the novella teaser, on my own actually and starting reading it, and when the author submitted the full book for review, I jumped on it!  Morgan does an outstanding job crafting a new Fae world, and really pulls you into it. How inconvenient is it when mortals can see right through Fae glamour! God, I hate that! ;)

But Nate, the boy Violet was protecting is one of those mortals and ends up following her into the Fae realm, and BAM we’ve got a story. We’ve got a boy, and a girl, and a bunch of Fae drama, what isn’t to love? She’s got such a darker plot riding underneath the general boy and girl from two worlds fall in love (but honestly, who doesn’t love a two worlds love story?) There’s evil that is involved, and it’s making everything much harder for Violet, and keeps her with Nate longer then she wanted to be.

But beyond my gushing, I felt like violet was such a vibrant, strong character, and really was able to keep me on my toes. She did unexpected things, and didn’t apologize for who she is. She’s strong, and that’s both saving grace and downfall. I would highly recommend this book. Fae lovers out there, check this out, you won’t regret it! I’ve read the mainstream Fae books, and indie ones, I’ve seen the TV shows and movies, and I promise this one stacks up right next to those Big Name authors out on the shelves at B&N! Great read!
