Blurb: 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: I’m not sure how I really feel about this book. It’s half drama and half action. I’m also not really sure what the plot is, I know it has something to do with the Unseelie Prince and something else but, I don’t understand it.
I guess that’s one way to get readers interested but, not this one. To me it feels like it’s dragging, that the author is trying to stall because there’s not an idea for the plot yet, there’s nothing specific. For this reader, if I don’t have a general idea of the plot, I don’t really want to go to the next book.
Are there questions I would like answered? Yes, of the course there are but, the way some things just started and stopped really threw me off and the book kind of just drifted for me.
The drama and the action balance each other out but, I really would rather less drama and more information on the plot.
Would I read it again? Maybe, sometime down the road. Maybe reading it again will help me figure out the general idea of the plot? I don’t know
Would I go on to the next book? I’m debating with myself at this point. Honestly, the only thing the next book has going for it to get me to read it is the questions I have for the drama.
Maybe this could be used as a filler type of book for those who want to read it, something to keep you occupied while waiting in line or waiting for another book.
Thank you for reading my review.
