A FAERIE'S REVENGE and GIVEAWAY


Yay! It's finally here!  "A Faerie's Revenge," which is Rachel Morgan's fifth book in the bestselling Creepy Hollow series.  Can I just tell you how much I love these books?  I discovered them a couple of years ago when I read "The Faerie Guardian," and I completely fell in love with Rachel's writing, and the Creepy Hollow world.

I was content to read, over and over again, "The Faerie Guardian," "The Faerie Prince," and "The Faerie War," to get my Creepy Hollow fix. So I about peed my pants with excitement when Ms. Morgan announced she was writing six more Creepy Hollow books!

And I was not disappointed.  "A Faerie's Secret" picked up about ten years after "The Faerie War," and introduced me to Calla, the main character of the next three books in the Creepy Hollow series. I fell in love with Calla as a female heroine, and when "A Faerie's Secret" ended, I was so bummed I had to wait for the next book.

But I'm so glad I was patient, because "A Faerie's Revenge" was fantastic and continued Calla's story so masterfully. There was awesome action and incredible magical world-building.  But what I loved the most was how masterful the characters, relationships, and plot were developed. The hesitant romance between Calla and Chase was swoon worthy and believable. The way trust, forgiveness, and the allowance of second chances played into their relationship was so realistic. These qualities gave "A Faerie's Revenge" a depth that I expect to find in Rachel's stories.


 Another way "A Faerie's Revenge" brought depth to Calla's story was how she was faced with real ethical challenges in her role as a guardian. Calla's journey on how she faces those challenges made the story that much more engaging. Calla is a strong female heroine.  But she is challenged with questions of whether or not "the good guys" are really the good guys.  Especially when she witnesses first hand "the bad guys" being the only ones in the the faerie world who make a difference by standing up for what is right.

Calla's story is complicated and so perfectly detailed with action, hesitant romance, the bonds of family and friends, and the reality of trying to figure out who she really is and what she stands for.  It's about redemption, and forgiving those who have made mistakes, even when those mistakes are ginormous.  And of course, it's about romance, the kind that lasts and everyone hopes for.

So, do yourself a favor and get lost in the Creepy Hollow world by reading Calla's story in "A Faerie's Revenge," and be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win one Creepy Hollow paperback and signed Creepy Hollow swag.
