COVER REVEAL: Rebel Faerie (#9) by Rachel Morgan

COVER

 

As some of you may know, I’m a HUGE Rachel Morgan fan! I’ve read most of her current fantasy series, Creepy Hollow, but I’m bittersweet as I type this. For I am about to show you the cover for the last book in the series. (Cue in the tears). This series is so special to me due to all the feels it has tore out of me and I never wanted to see the end of it.

If you haven’t read this series yet, please do yourself a favor and start it! (Now that the last book is about to come out in December, there shouldn’t be anything stopping you!) This series follows 3 different characters in this world who each have their stories told in 3 books.

Books 1-3 follow Violet Fairdale<3

OFFICIAL SYNOSPIS:

Kick-butt faerie Violet Fairdale is about to graduate as the top guardian trainee of her class, but when an assignment goes wrong and the human guy she’s meant to be protecting follows her back into the fae realm, a dangerous plot is set in motion. Enter evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. The stakes are higher than Vi could ever imagine, and it’ll take every bit of her training to survive the coming ordeal.

Get Violet’s story in one complete digital boxed set and find yourself swept away in the magic, intrigue, action and romance of this bestselling YA fantasy world!

MY REVIEWS:

[Faerie Guardian] [Faerie Prince] [Faerie War]


Books 4-6 follow Calla Larkenwood<3

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS:

When Calla Larkenwood is given the opportunity to realize her dream of becoming a guardian, she enters a world far more dangerous than she could ever have imagined. One foe is intent on bringing the Guild down for good, while another prepares for a horrifying prophesied spell that will forever change both the magic and non-magic realms. In a world where everyone keeps secrets and the line between good and bad has become blurred, how will Calla figure out whom to trust?

Join beloved Creepy Hollow characters and new heroes in this thrill ride of heart-pounding action, startling revelations, and dangerous magic, beginning ten years after the events of The Faerie War.

MY REVIEWS:

[Faerie’s Secret] [Faerie’s Revenge] [Faerie’s Curse]


Books 7-9 follow Emerson Clarke.

I haven’t read the res of these books yet but I’m hoping to catch up soon!

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS:

Emerson Clarke: Sarcastic. Independent. Possibly losing her mind.

Because that’s the only explanation for why she occasionally sees things that aren’t there, right? But one night, an impossible power erupts from her, and Em realizes the truth is crazier than she ever thought: she isn’t losing her mind; she’s magical.

Thrown into an entirely new world of faeries, enchantments—and the annoying guy from down the road who, it turns out, isn’t human either—Em barely has time to learn even the most basic of magic before another startling truth reveals itself: she has a Griffin Ability. A special kind of magic feared by most fae. Now she’s at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list—including the mysterious glass faerie carrying out random attacks on fae.

In this magical and terrifying world that she’s entirely unprepared for, Em must try to figure out who she really is, whom to trust, and how to stay alive long enough to get back to her normal life.

Begin a thrilling new adventure as the bestselling Creepy Hollow series continues eighteen years after the events of A Faerie’s Curse!

“Just because I’ve seen the palette of dark colors doesn’t mean I have to paint the rest of my world that way.”
I have waited so long to be able to review this, and the time has come!
This is the fourth book in this incredible series and it takes place 10 years after the last book. The main character is now Calla, instead of Violet.
I am so glad to say that it’s still action packed and even more intriguing than the others. Rachel has become one of my absolute favorite authors. She has the most talented imagination I have had the pleasure of reading and it still blows my mind away, to this day. She always starts her stories with a powerful and captivating explosion. I can’t stress enough how unique these books are. She keeps me at the edge of my seat through out it all and there isn’t a character she has conjured that I don’t like. My heart was completely invested into Calla’s story, even more than Violet’s. Her joy and pain were my own.
With that being said, the ending OBLITERATED me. It gave me the worst book hangover I have ever experienced in my life. I couldn’t stop crying for two days straight, I didn’t even get out of bed. To say that Rachel is phenomenal at world-building is the understatement of the year.
This book is deadly.
There’s plot twist after plot twist after world-shattering plot twist. Everything I thought I knew about Calla and Chase went up in flames. It’s safe to say, this is one of the most impacting endings I have ever experienced.
I never saw all of that coming and even after all that, this is my favorite book in the series! Call me a masochist, I won’t deny it!
I can NOT wait for the next book, I am dying to know what happens with Chase and Calla!! My heart has yet to heal from this tragic emotional rollercoaster.

5/5 stars!

Review: Dominion by J. Kowallis!

MY REVIEW:

*ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review*
“… If this choice was going to end them both, they’d go to hell together, and he wanted nothing more.”
I’ve been dreading the writing of this review because it meant that I’ve officially put this series behind me and it’s killing me to no end. I never wanted this series to end but here we are… If you haven’t read this series yet, I hope you do so as soon as you’re done reading this review!!
Since this is the last book in this saga, I’m not really going to get into the plot (because spoilers) but I will say that it follows our beloved characters as they deal with all sorts of grief that comes from war. We see them as they try to learn how to overcome the paralyzing consequences that can come from having a loved one (or several, in some cases) taken from you. I took their sorrow and heartbreak personally which added to my own over witnessing it all.
This book picks up right after the last one and I must admit, the fact that it was a bit slow in the beginning made me a tiny bit hesitant to continue. I was already dealing with a ginormous book slump (still am) so I decided to set it aside for a bit until I could actually force myself to sit down and read. As soon as I was able to do so, I found it picking up very quickly so I basically had nothing to worry about and wasted precious time. (Typical Cassandra, I swear.) I flew through Dominion like there was no tomorrow and I will forever regret. I wish I could’ve somehow savored this novel until my last breath.
I spent the good first half of this novel in sad tears and the second half in happy tears. This book left me trembling from emotional overload. I was physically and emotionally exhausted by the end and just threw myself at my bed to give myself a moment to catch up with the real world. This was 400+ pages of pure torture, of the best kind. Every word felt carefully chosen and sharpened precisely to tear apart a reader’s heart. A part of me didn’t want to keep going but Kowallis’ words are so addicting that they won out in the end. Each page was more beautifully tragic than the last and I couldn’t get enough.
J. Kowallis outdid herself in this installment and I fell in love with how she handled each character’s development. They’ve come so far since book 1 and I am still in awe from it all. I don’t know how to say goodbye to them so I’m not going to. I’m just going to say, until next time… (HUGE WINKS TO JERNAE)

5/5 stars!
