Book Review: The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan

About the Book:

The Faerie Guardian, Part I

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.

My Thoughts:

A truly magical read, this book takes us into a unique world of magic. A world where it is the responsibility of the faeries to protect the human world from dangerous magical creatures. When Violet, on the verge of becoming a guardian is out trying to protect a human boy from a creature, she finds that he can somehow see through her glamour. When she returns to the Fae realm, she finds that he has somehow followed her there. Now it is up to her to return him home and make him forget everything that he has seen or knows.

Even though Violet knows all the rules, she faces some trials on the way and add to the mix the cuteness of the human boy and behold a fantastic read. The author has written this story really well and the magic will tightly envelope the reader and draw them in. What should be but a simple task turns out into one filled with danger and unexpected twists. I loved the concept and plot of this story and recommend this to all magic lovers! This proves to be a truly wonderful read and is quite enjoyable.

My Saviour

Every day that we are apart,

It just makes me wonder,

Why do I rely on you so much?

What is it about you that makes it so?

We are but friends,

Two very different people,

And still it feels as though,

You’re the only one who understands.

 

There are some things about you,

That make you who you are,

A unique soul in this world of souls,

It sets you apart.

 

The slight smirk that is always there,

Hidden behind a serious face,

You attempt to be intimidating,

But come off as anything but.

 

Or perhaps I know you well enough,

To see through the façade,

The face that you show everyone,

Is not always the same.

 

A ton of advice you have to give,

You seem to care a lot,

You have particular ideals,

Break some of them, you cannot.

 

At heart you are soft,

A huge romantic,

You are not just my best friend,

You know how to make me feel special.

 

The fact that you never judge,

Makes it easier to open up,

You always know what to say,

To make it all better.

 

You hold my hand and guide me along,

You speak only when you feel it necessary,

You are indeed my guardian and saviour,

My best friend for life.
