REVIEW: The Faerie Prince by Rachel Morgan
Series: Creepy Hollow #2
Author: Rachel Morgan
Published date: May 27, 2013
Rating: 4 1/2 stars
Synopsis: 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.
Review: I'd like to thank the author for giving me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review. I haven't read the first of the series, so I was a little leery of reading the second in a series. It's burned me before, to the point where I had given lower ratings because I couldn't understand things that were going on and couldn't get into it.
However, thankfully, this book never entered into the "second in a series" issues. It was easily enough of a stand alone, where it could be read without having to read the first. And I loved this book! I want to read the first, and most definitely the next!
The author did a great job of introducing the characters and making us care for them, especially Violet and Ryn. The action started from the very beginning and kept up throughout the entire book
