My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The glittering magic of high society faerie life, with a hint of forbidden romance ...
When design student Raven Rosewood, daughter of high society fae, is almost killed in an explosion, her parents insist on assigning a bodyguard to protect her at all times. Raven agrees, but only if she can choose the guard.
Flint’s life couldn’t be more different from that of his employers. He doesn’t agree with their extravagant ways, but he’s admired their daughter Raven since he first met her. When asked to guard her more closely after her life is threatened, Flint is happy to take on the assignment.
Despite the gulf between their stations in life, Raven and Flint can’t help growing close to one another. As the pressure of Raven’s final fashion show builds, along with the threat of her parents discovering her relationship with a guard, Raven and Flint must decide whether their differences will push them apart or bring them closer together.
Raven is a companion story to the bestselling YA fantasy Creepy Hollow series. While it is best enjoyed in conjunction with the rest of the series, it is a standalone story that can be read on its own.
What I think:
This book was amazing. Rachel Morgan pulled me back into the Creepy Hollow world and I loved every second of it. I'm loving these short stories about other characters in the books. It's a nice change. These stories are short and blend in perfectly into what you already know from the main books in the series. It's very nice to read how these characters got to the point they're at when they're introduced in the books.
Good job Rachel, good job. I can't wait for the 7th Creepy Hollow book to come out.
