Summary

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 glamour 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 of it alive.

Perfect? No. Fun? Yes.

Um. Okay. This is going to be really hard to review... I should not have liked this, at least in theory. Violet does not really have an overall goal so although the differerent parts of the plot are linked they feel more like individual adventures, and the climax isn't really all that climactic, considering nothing is really defeated, just escaped.

HOWEVER, this was really fun. I didn't want to stop listening. I enjoyed what happened and felt for Vi. The best way I can think to put my feelings for it is that it was like reading a good fanfiction, the characters and scenes are a lot of fun but it feels like the writer is letting it go where it wants to. So, despite some flaws, I enjoyed this. Enjoyed it enough that I'll be picking up the sequel.

Charming YA Fantasy

Would you listen to Creepy Hollow Series # 1 again? Why?

Yes! Although this book was slow to get going, in my opinion, the characters grew on me and I immediately liked Violet, the main character.

What other book might you compare Creepy Hollow Series # 1 to and why?

I was constantly reminded of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments. The Guardians reminded me very much of the Shadow Hunters in Clare's novels. Morgan's Guardians train to protect humans from the more malicious beings from Faerie and they also use a variety of weapons and gadgets similar to those in the Mortal Instruments books.

Have you listened to any of Jorjeana Marie and Zach Villa ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not. I thought they did a great job narrating!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not in the very beginning, but the further I got into the book, the more I wanted to just sit and finish listening.

Any additional comments?

Great narration and an intriguing story that is just beginning. Looking forward to all that will unfold in the next books!

Enjoyed it!!!!!

Pleasantly surprised. Discovered that faerie reads can be nice. Generally I dont go for theme because they are too high fantasy for me, but this was a perfect balance. Vi, did some fast growing up. I felt bad for her and I got quiet at my desk when Ryn broke down and told how he felt . The battles and action seemed very crime show cop/detective inspired but i like that. Rachel did the best job descripting the Faerien world m which is normally my sticking point on these type of novels. She handled that task with flying colors. Great read and i will be picking up number 2 tomorrow .

Started slow but picked up speed.

This book started out fairly slow and I wasn't sure I wanted to continue but after a few hours the storyline really took off and I enjoyed the story itself. Its definitely more of a younger teen story and the characters felt pretty immature.

The story itself was good, full of twists and turns and I liked it enough to download book no. 2.

The narrators were very good.

Pleasantly surprised!

I really enjoyed the story, although the accent of the lady reading kind of irritated me. By the end of the book I did get used to it. I look forward to the next in the series for sure.

Can that be the end?

My book seemed to be missing the last chapter. It went back and repeated a previously read chapter. How can that be the ending?

Good story

Good story. I was hoping for more adventure and less teen drama romance. Still enjoyed. I will finish the trilogy.

interesting concept, but...

slow chatacter development and akward switch of narrators towards the end. The world and characters have so much potential that you want to be really excited about the story. However, the story begins to drag on as the obvious is not noted by the main character. Perhaps they will catch on better in the second book?
