Still reeling from a shocking revelation, guardian trainee Calla Larkenwood finds the threads of her world unraveling further when she’s accused of a horrifying crime she didn’t commit: A deadly magical disease has entered the Guild, threatening to wipe out every guardian—and someone is intent on framing Calla for it. With the Guild Council focusing their investigation on her instead of searching for the real criminal, Calla watches her dream of becoming a guardian rapidly slipping away. Time is running out, and as the lines between good and bad, right and wrong, begin to blur, whom can she turn to for help?


This was an exciting and fantastic sequel to A Faerie's Secret that will leave you begging for the next book in the series! Rachel Morgan has done it yet again, and crafted a wonderful book that has nonstop action, adventure, and romance. Her writing is gorgeous, with every scene richly described, and the way she writes her characters...well it's safe to say that you'll fall in love with all of them even more after reading this installment in the Creepy Hollow series. 

This book picks up right where we left off in A Faerie's Secret. Calla is still reeling from the shocker over Chase's identity, and she is doing everything in her power to try and forget all about him. However, that's not going so well, as basically everything she does reminds Calla of Chase. Suddenly, a mysterious illness spreads like wildfire throughout Creepy Hollow, and it spells TROUBLE for Calla. I had no idea where Ms. Morgan was going to take this book, but this went in such an amazing direction. I loved how unexpected this story was, and I never knew what was going to happen next. Many series might have become boring by now, but Ms. Morgan is an expert at storytelling, and easily sweeps you off your feet while reading this story. The story is fast-paced, but never confusing, and everything about the story is extremely well-developed. You can see how much time and effort Ms. Morgan put into creating this novel. 

However, where this book truly shines is in its characters. Calla has come a remarkably long way since the previous book, and I applaud Ms. Morgan for the growth that Calla has experienced. She has never once lost her optimistic and hopeful nature. Calla wants to fix everything and never stops trying. Even though she suffers a lot of downfalls and has many crazy times, she never once stops being her determined self. Chase is also amazing in this novel. I loved him in the last book, and after the revelation of his true identity, I had no idea what to think. You honestly can't help but love him. After all of the events of his past, he is still looking for redemption. He has a way to go, but he's off to an amazing start. He has already made great strides to creating a better future for himself and the people around him, and my heart broke for him so many times. 

The one thing that I love about Rachel Morgan's writing is how she reminds every reader that there is more to the world than you think. There is a recurring theme in this book of Calla realizing that the world isn't black and white. There are many gray areas, and that nothing is truly as it seems...whether that means other people or the world you live in. At the end of the day though, as Calla says, it comes down to choosing the "brighter colors in life." 

I highly recommend checking this book out if you're a fan of the Creepy Hollow series. You will not want to miss out on this exciting adventure that Calla and Chase embark on, and you will never guess how it will all end. I am so excited for the next book in the series, and to see where Rachel Morgan takes the story!

Happy reading :)
