Review: Violet's Story: The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan

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.
Review: Rating- 4.5
Wow! I wasn't really expecting to love this books as much as I do. I never read books about Fae or Halflings, but I was in the mood to branch out for once and I'm glad I did. If you're looking for a bit of romance, great ribbing remarks, and a huge twist at the end then get ready to read this series.

The book started off abruptly jumping right into the story, which I loved. I don't like taking the time to learn every tiny aspect when I'm reading an action adventure story. I was a bit disappointed with how childish Violet seemed. She's 17 so she shouldn't be as immature as she was acting. I looked past this as much as I could, but it still annoyed me.

I was worried about finishing the novel because I kept guessing every tiny twist in the plot until suddenly I was left screaming at the book. I honestly didn't see THAT twist happening. I probably should have, but I was too happy to see it coming. This is why I think you should read the book. You're going to read and you're going to guess so many things even a big plot twist with Nate. Then that terrible falling off the side of the mountain thing is going to happen and you're going to be left feeling exactly like Violet, broken and betrayed and angry. Keep reading because it only gets better.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
