Faerie Prince Review

Good morning everyone! Today I’m reviewing The Faerie Prince by Rachel Morgan

Genre: YA Fantasy
Published: May 8, 2013
Series: #2 (Creepy Hollows)
Length: 360 pages
Source: (author) review copy

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, 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.”

This book picks up right where the last left off, which personally I love. I hate when books give long intros for all those who haven’t read the first one yet. For me it’s a given: read book one first if you want the backstory. Now that my little rant is over, I’ll get back to my review. In book one there was a lot of relationship building and breaking and you’ll find more of that here. You’ll also find yourself routing for people you never thought you would (aka Ryn).  That was probably what I loved most about this book, both books really. You never quite knew who to trust. Morgan’s style of writing is a pleasure to read; all twists and turns and wondering. It truly keeps you up into the wee hours trying to discover what happens next.  I know I’m being maddeningly vague, but I don’t want you to lose that perfect moment that Rachel has created when you make all of these lovely discoveries for yourself.
