***Cianna – #NerdGirlSunshine’s  Review***
Another Creepy Hollow book, and another success in my book! :) I’ve always been a fan of the Fae, and Rachel does such a great job with her character development and world building, that coming back for the next book is like coming back to your favorite vacation spot. It’s familiar, it’s a happy place, and I’m so glad for book 4! This time we’re following Calla, who is the sister to our previous main character, Ryn! When author’s pass a story to a new character, it’s often hard to make that transition stick in the reader’s hearts, but by keeping our main characters from the first three around in this one, it didn’t feel like a loss, even if 10 years had passed. It felt like more of a growth of the world. We get to see other people and other adventures! Much better then ending it at book 3!

Now, speaking strictly of this novel, I loved Calla! She’s smart and sassy, and a little kick assy (Is that a thing?). I kinda like her a little more then Vi, which surprised me, but she’s written so well. She jumps off the page, and really has a vibrant personality. As for the story, Calla’s world seems to be full of secrets and mysteriously handsome men, well man! I couldn’t predict where this story was going from the beginning, and every plot twist just made my head spin, in a good way. This adventure is fast paced, exciting, and so addictive to read. Every-time I thought I knew the characters, something came out, and it was mind blowing! All in all, fantastic book. New characters are just as engaging, if not more so then the original, and the writing just keeps getting better! Rachel is an author to watch for sure!

In a final note, there is a MASSIVE cliffhanger, so don’t get angry, it’s a huge surprise, and it hurts, but that just means we’re in store for another book and I cannot wait! :)
