Book Review: The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan

Goodreads Synopsis

Enter a hidden world of magic, mystery, danger and romance in this YA fantasy from Amazon bestselling author, 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.

[This novel was originally published in four separate parts: Guardian,Labyrinth, Traitor and Masquerade. It includes bonus scenes at the end that were not published in the individual parts.

This book is available for free on Amazon and also on Smashwords here

The Faerie Guardian is a Fantasy novel about The Fae Realm intermingled with the Human, though we rarely delve into that world because faeries and humans are a no no.

Violet Fairdale gets sent on assignment in the Human world and things don’t go according to plan. The rules are in place for a reason and Violet happens to break them…accidentally.

There were parts of the book that I liked and parts I could have lived without. This book was extremely predictable and it made for an unenjoyable read. The book was slow at times and it took me quite a while to get through it, though it did speed up near the end.

What I did like were the characters. Each character has their annoying traits but nobody’s perfect. Violet would run headlong into danger without having a backup or thinking of an escape before she goes in. I found it careless. And all because of a boy? Ridiculous. The writing style was good and the plot was paced enough not to make it confusing.

I honestly do not think I’ll be continuing with this series. Her entire world revolved around this one boy and I would have liked for her to be more…‘I don’t need a man’-ish
