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.
Wow, I just absolutely loved The Faerie Guardian. I'm always a bit skeptical picking up a book I haven't heard anything about, but I figured hey I love anything Fae and man was a pleasantly hooked on this book so quick! If you love Fae, Rachel Morgan puts and excellent twist on all things Fae and I could not put The Faerie Guardian down for a second.
Violet is such a kick butt character from the very opening chapter and instantly loved that about her. I love how she breaks the rules and follows her heart, and yet is still always trying to do what is right. Regardless of what she's lost, who is mean to her or betrays her, Violet keeps going and that is an admirable quality.
Then there's Nate, who I find myself very conflicted about. I always in the back of head was wishy-washy about him, even in scenes where I thought he was being adorable. I'll be very curious to see where his character ends up.
With Ryn, well I just love love loved him. It doesn't matter how horrible he acts towards Violet, I understand where his hurt and anger comes from, and yet to me you can still tell there's a heart under all of that. Plus, his hot name and glass blue eyes...oh hellllo gorgeous. I really hope to see a lot more of him in the future, and even though there are no hints being dropped yet...I just may be shipping Ryn and Violet.
The twists and the betrayals in this book were just too notch. I really liked how the story line played out and how it all ended up crashing into each other at the end. I also love the multi-colored hair and eyes to match qualities that Rachel gave her Fae. Also the fact that she made the Fae up to date but yet kept a lot of the same lore. Plus, the whole guardian training aspect was just awesome to read about.
I'm so happy that I have this book a chance, because I ended up absolutely loving it and already bought the next book in the series! Total top notch faerie book!
