Blog Tour : Guardian (Creepy Hollow) by Rachel Morgan

From Goodreads :
1. Receive assignment.
2. Save a life.
3. Sleep.
4. Repeat.

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 one of her assignments—a human boy who shouldn’t even be able to see her—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? But Nate and Vi are about to land themselves in even bigger trouble—and it’ll take all Vi’s training to get them out alive.

My rating : 4 of 5 stars

My Thoughts : Guild Rule No. 1:
Never bring a human into the fae realm.
Guild Rule No. 2:
Never reveal yourself to a human.


And you can’t break neither of the rules

Only 9 chapters and it will take you to a roller costar ride of adventure, leading you to a journey through the deep forest of secret fairy realm called Creepy Hollow (Well, don’t mix it up with sleepy hollow).

Chasing Reptiscilla, an unpleasant kind of fairy under trainee fairy guardian Violet steps on a human boy Nate and accidently took him to Creepy Hollow, breaking the rules of fairy realm, thus jeopardizing her carrier as a guardian.

The whole story was fast paced and all about their experience through Creepy Hollow while Violet was taking Nate back to human world. They faced some danger in their way and defeated them very subtly. Of course some secrets are to be revealed in next book, and I can’t wait to read about them more.

As for the characters, Violet and Nate were quite different from each other. While Violet was serious type and determined young guardian; Nate was more fun and I enjoyed him. I also relished their budding friendship that developed through pages and at the end point gave us some hint of romance. They bonded very quickly and be in the mess together, not willing to leave each other’s side.

I loved the fae culture and rules that the author developed, it was very imaginative. It took me nearly one hour to finish the book and I didn’t realize how the hour had passed. The story is a page turner from beginning to end and a light and delightful read. I never felt this is the debut book of the author and I found myself loving and enjoying every bit of the novelette.
