Publisher's Summary

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.

Charming YA Fantasy

Would you listen to Creepy Hollow Series # 1 again? Why?

Yes! Although this book was slow to get going, in my opinion, the characters grew on me and I immediately liked Violet, the main character.

What other book might you compare Creepy Hollow Series # 1 to and why?

I was constantly reminded of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments. The Guardians reminded me very much of the Shadow Hunters in Clare's novels. Morgan's Guardians train to protect humans from the more malicious beings from Faerie and they also use a variety of weapons and gadgets similar to those in the Mortal Instruments books.

Have you listened to any of Jorjeana Marie and Zach Villa ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not. I thought they did a great job narrating!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not in the very beginning, but the further I got into the book, the more I wanted to just sit and finish listening.

Any additional comments?

Great narration and an intriguing story that is just beginning. Looking forward to all that will unfold in the next books!

Enjoyed it!!!!!

Pleasantly surprised. Discovered that faerie reads can be nice. Generally I dont go for theme because they are too high fantasy for me, but this was a perfect balance. Vi, did some fast growing up. I felt bad for her and I got quiet at my desk when Ryn broke down and told how he felt . The battles and action seemed very crime show cop/detective inspired but i like that. Rachel did the best job descripting the Faerien world m which is normally my sticking point on these type of novels. She handled that task with flying colors. Great read and i will be picking up number 2 tomorrow .

Started slow but picked up speed.

This book started out fairly slow and I wasn't sure I wanted to continue but after a few hours the storyline really took off and I enjoyed the story itself. Its definitely more of a younger teen story and the characters felt pretty immature.

The story itself was good, full of twists and turns and I liked it enough to download book no. 2.

The narrators were very good.

Pleasantly surprised!

I really enjoyed the story, although the accent of the lady reading kind of irritated me. By the end of the book I did get used to it. I look forward to the next in the series for sure.

Good story

Good story. I was hoping for more adventure and less teen drama romance. Still enjoyed. I will finish the trilogy.

interesting concept, but...

slow chatacter development and akward switch of narrators towards the end. The world and characters have so much potential that you want to be really excited about the story. However, the story begins to drag on as the obvious is not noted by the main character. Perhaps they will catch on better in the second book?

Hidden world, hidden agenda!

This is my first time reading by this author, Rachel Morgan. Man, oh, man, I did enjoy this YA paranormal fantasy story and it got everything, for sure. It truly contained a lot of hidden world, magic, adventure, romance, heartbreak, intelligence and courage. I love Violet as a strong lead female and telling her story, her missions- POV. I really dig Nate and Ryn as the 2 boys in her life...how their relationships with her are quite important! I like how the author provided enough details of what type of hidden world you are in which is quite magnificent one. The audio narrator kicked it up a notch for sure...she made the pages become quite real! I will continue listening/reading this series.

Well written

it was a good read. Sometimes the characters come off as very young( which they are) but the moments are brief

Perfect? No. Fun? Yes.

Um. Okay. This is going to be really hard to review... I should not have liked this, at least in theory. Violet does not really have an overall goal so although the differerent parts of the plot are linked they feel more like individual adventures, and the climax isn't really all that climactic, considering nothing is really defeated, just escaped.

HOWEVER, this was really fun. I didn't want to stop listening. I enjoyed what happened and felt for Vi. The best way I can think to put my feelings for it is that it was like reading a good fanfiction, the characters and scenes are a lot of fun but it feels like the writer is letting it go where it wants to. So, despite some flaws, I enjoyed this. Enjoyed it enough that I'll be picking up the sequel.

Great introduction to new author

The Faerie Guardian is book one in Rachel Morgan’s Creepy Hollow Series. Violet Fairdale is a 17 year old Guardian Trainee, Guardians are the police of the Faery world, they protect the humans and Fae who can not protect themselves, she thrives to be the top of her class. When Violet is sent on an assignment to protect a human boy from a reptiscilla, a Fae creature. But when the human can see through her invisibility and follows her to the Fae world, the perfect record and graduation she has worked hard to get is in jeopardy. But the human, Nate isn’t all what he seems. I really enjoyed this book, the twists, connections, friendships, enemies and betrayal is addictive and exciting. Some secrets are revealed that will have you shocked, the history between Violet and Ryn will have you on the edge of your seat hoping that it will be repaired. The characters development and growth is a sight to see. Violet is a kicka** heroine who is trying to be the top of her class, she has secrets from her past that make her who she is. She struggles with the feeling she has towards both Nate and Ryn, just when she thinks she has a handle on them something else happens and it’s in the air again. I wasn’t really a fan of Nate, she just seemed too excepting of what was happening around him, but then when things took a turn I was very disappointed and annoyed with him. But Im hoping he will redeem himself later. Ryn on the other hand he is the band boy and everyone secretly wants the bad boy, I didn’t understand the hatred between him and Vi until the end of the book but now I rooting for him. I’m looking forward to reading The Faerie Prince.
