Review: The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan

The Faerie Guardian
(Creepy Hollow #1)
by Rachel Morgan

A faerie girl.
A human boy.
A magical world.
A dangerous plot.

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.

My thoughts: This was a fun, pretty quick read and I definitely want to continue on in the series.  Even though in the book, Vi doesn't have a lot of friends, she is a very sympathetic character.  Especially as you get into the book and learn more about her.  There is a lot of action and it was fun to visit this fantastical world of faeries, trolls, pixies, half-lings, etc.   The author does a good job of describing the magic that they have.  It is always interesting to see what an author will come up with to make her characters special in the magical sense.  

Vi's life ends up pretty messy by the end of the book, friends become enemies, enemies become friends and you can't really trust what you know.  This book continues on with The Faerie Prince and book 3 is The Faerie War.
