Synopsis:Enter a hidden world...
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.

I LOVED this book! The story of Violet is touching and frustrating at the same time and I can promise you'll get your heart ripped out several times. You fall in love with the characters one chapter and start hating them the next. (Though I'll hate Ryn no matter what!)
Read this book in a bit more than one day. Definitely worth to take a look at this first book in the Deadly Hollow series.
Second time reading this book: 12/02/2016
This book is just as good as the first time I've read it. Though I have a much better eye for details now. Rachel Morgan knew where she was going with this story from the beginning and that shows in her writing. Little hints are being dropped throughout the book. You forget about those details, but once you get back to the first book after reading the rest of the series you find them hidden in every corner.
It's funny to see how characters change in the story. The ones you love in the firts book, won't stay awesome forever. Same thing goes for the ones you hate.
Definitely one of my all time favorite series out there.
