Description

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, and 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.

After completing a degree in genetics and discovering she still wasn't grown-up enough for a 'real' job, she decided to return to those story worlds still spinning around her imagination. These days she spends much of her time immersed in fantasy land once more, writing fiction for young adults and those young at heart. Rachel lives in Cape Town with her husband and three miniature dachshunds. She is the author of the bestselling Creepy Hollow series, and also writes sweet contemporary romance under the name Rochelle Morgan.

    It's very rare for me to like the second book in a series as much as I liked the first. It's rarer still for me to like the sequel even more but I have absolutely no reservations about giving this book a solid 5 star rating. The Faerie Prince is filled with exciting action sequences, swoon-worthy romance, more of Vi's wit and sarcasm, and a couple of really interesting twists. I try to keep my reviews spoiler-free, but I will say that in my previous review I declared myself Team Ryn and I was not disappointed. We get a whole lot more Ryn and I loved every minute of it. The relationship between he and Vi develops to a whole new level in this book but in a very organic way. Nothing feels forced or fake about it. Some of my favorite moments were banter between Ryn and Violet:

    "Now you're the one joking."
    "Of course." I sigh. "I have nothing but the lowest expectations when it comes to you, Ryn."
    "And I shall continue to live down to them."

    While there's absolutely nothing explicit or inappropriate for younger readers, the romance still made my heart race and gave me those butterflies that only great romance can give. There are quite a few swoon-worthy moments. Here are a couple of my faves:

    "He pulls me back into position. 'Oh, I forgot to tell you something,' he says. He leans forward and his lips brush my ear as he whispers, 'You are more beautiful than any other girl in this room."

    and:

    "It just feels right when you're beside me. It feels like I've been lost in the desert for years, and...I've finally come home."


    I'll also mention that I'll never view lightning bugs in quite the same way ever again but you must read the book to experience that scene for yourself.

    There's really an amazing balance here between action and dramatic moments. The action sequences were thrilling and had me on the edge of my seat and then things would slow down and the characters would get a little more vulnerable. The pacing was fantastic. Just the right mix of action and drama.

    This is really a fantastic series. Better, in my opinion, than the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa which so many readers praise so highly. Great characters that I would love to meet in real life, detailed world-building that really gives you a complete mental picture of the settings, lots of action, swoon-worthy romance and a plot that satisfies but still leaves plenty of questions to be answered as the series continues. As my readers know, there are very few books that I purchase in paper form nowadays. This series is definitely one of those that deserves a place on the permanent bookshelf of any fan of fantasy, paranormal and/or faeries.

    I can not wait until the next book is released sometime later this year.

    Okay, I had a review all typed, and then I lost it! Ugh :(
    So, I will try to type this again! It won't be as long though... Hopefully you get the gist of how much I loved this book though!

    Review:

    As you now know, I absolutely loved this book! After reading the first one, I had high expectations for the Faerie Prince. And they were more than met, they were exceeded! I completely gave up trying to pay attention to the real world and just read...

    The characters are as great as ever, especially Ryn. (And one specific sweet scene with a flying carpet!) I wanted to know more about him as he intrigued me in the first book and I got my wish! We learn so much more about him. There is also so much awesome character development!

    Vi, the main character, is vivid and her narration pulled me into the world of Creepy Hollow. All the descriptions, ideas, and plots are amazing. I whipped through this book at lightning speed! Also, the characters I felt were unique and memorable! And the dialogue was realistic, fun, and not forced. I am co happy about that cause I am totally picky about my dialogue.

    Overall, this is a 100% awesome book. I cannot wait for more from Rachel Morgan, and I would recommend this series to any of my friends. I am actually thinking of getting the paperback copies for my shelves! (And what a pretty cover!)

    5/5 bookcases

    Sorry, for the jumbled review! Just try to believe me when I say the other review had a bit more flow to it!

    ORIGINAL REVIEW AT: LITTLE BOOK STARWow! Author Rachel Morgan has done it again. You think the story is only going to be focused on one thing, but no. There’s seriously a lot more to it! It starts off with 18 year old Violet Fairdale, our faerie protagonist about to graduate, but before that she is assigned to her final assignment along with a partner. Everyone is excited about this assignment because they will be sent to a different place to do their task with a random partner. Violet’s partner turns out to be her worst-enemy-used-to-be-best-friend Ryn (Oryn). As I was reading, I thought the book will be focused on that mission, but it wasn’t! So I was like “okay, I wonder where this book is heading.” Page after page it just got better and better! The world building improved, the characters developed, and there were SO MANY TWISTS in this book! I caught myself saying “oh my gosh!”.. and that ending.. WHY RACHEL!? WHY!? WHY DID IT HAVE TO END THAT WAY? Major cliffhanger. I want the 3rd book now!Violet is such a kick ass, witty, relatable character. She’s determined to be the best faerie trainee out of her whole class. She has determination and confidence which makes her an awesome female protagonist. I like how she’s not kick ass all the time though. That would just make her unrealistic and a dull character. She breaks down at times in the book due to remembering her parent’s death. I just love her Violet’s personality overall and her relationship with Oryn. Out of all the characters, Ryn has changed the most. It really surprised me that at some point I thought it was unbelievable. He’s best friends with Violet since day 1, but ever since Reed’s death (his brother) he became a bitter person especially towards Violet. He tries his best to humiliate her, tease her, and treats her badly. He was what you call a big, fat bully. But in this book, he changed big time which made me love him! I would have never thought I would love his character.The romance was really cute in this book, but could be a bit cheesy at times. Who would’ve thought Violet and Ryn would be a couple? Just imagine the guy/girl you hate in the whole world and you have a relationship with him/her? I really like Ryn’s sweet, romantic side and how he proves to Violet that he’s serious about their relationship. There’s not only romance and friendship, but families, unexpected events, and backstabbing characters. There is so much going on that I will not mention it in this review as a tiny info is already a spoiler! There’s a lot of adventure that will make you keep flipping the pages.I really love Rachel Morgan’s writing style. It flows well, and I like how she could connect all the problems that the characters were encountering whether old or new. They are somewhat all related to one another and I was left awed and amazed that she could all intertwine the characters’ situation. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5/5 stars is sometimes I didn’t know what was happening towards the middle of the book, and how Ryn & Violet fell in love a bit quickly. I really like their relationship when they were already together, but the time where Violet kept thinking about Ryn or when Ryn told her that he wanted her, I didn’t really buy it. Overall I would recommend this series especially if you want to read a YA fantasy that involved faeries. If you want cliffhanger endings, lots of twist after twist after twist, and overall an unpredictable book, then Rachel Morgan’s series, Creepy Hollow, is for you.
