I didn’t really want to finish this book because this is the end of Calla’s part of the Creepy Hollow series. At the same time I couldn’t stop reading it. The ending was so dramatic in the previous book that I desperately needed to know what was going to happen.Calla is working on a plan to break Chase out of his mother’s childhood home. Meanwhile the Guild still thinks she and Lord Draven are evil and need to be stopped. Her family is under scrutiny and things just seem to be going from bad to worse.Rachel Morgan did not hold back at all on this novel. I cried so much because how is it possible that one girl could have such bad luck?I found the ending a bit incomplete but I’m betting it’s just going to make the next part of the Creepy Hollow series even more intriguing. This book was romantic and sad, heartbreaking and well-written. I loved seeing Violet and Ryn as more fleshed-out characters and I can’t wait to see what else happens in this world. Creepy Hollow is a great series but as time goes on the Creepy Hollow world seems to get darker and darker which makes for a highly enjoyable read.
Sloane Munster (or Monster as some not-very-kind people call her) runs into Luke when she starts at a new school. Sloane was involved in a horrific accident that left her scarred and as soon as Luke sees her, he is repulsed by her new look. Or so it seems.
Unknown to Sloane, Luke has his own reasons for the animosity he feels towards her. Fate keeps dragging them together both in and out of school.
This is a story about Luke and Sloane’s pasts, their feelings for one another as well as the multitude of bullying that takes place at their school.
I loved how real this novel was. Several times I had to put the book down because the mean people here- be it a teacher, a parent or other teens- reminded me a little too much of people I’ve encountered in my own life. This book is excellently written and draws the reader in easily. I’m actually sad to see this book end. I’d love to read more about Sloane and Luke.
I recently cashed in my Readers Warehouse vouchers for these books.
I’ve read (and loved) almost all of them so I was really grateful to have my own print copies. I haven’t read Just Jealous but I’m really looking forward to starting it.
I also recently won a Scarred swag bag with a signed copy of Joanne Macgregor’s Scarred and other fun stuff (full post about that later).
I really enjoyed this book. At first it was confusing since there’s so many characters and so many supernatural creatures. Once I really got into the book though it was great. There’s several group of people- the guardians, the Vampires, the gypsies and the humans- but they’re all after one thing. Summerfield.
Quinn has abandoned her duty as a Guardian to take care of her niece and nephew. However her father and fellow Guardians demand that she returns to Summerfield. To ensure her co-operation they take the children. Quinn is left to either return to her job as a Guardian (and risk having her niece and nephew live a life without her) or to find something more precious that will help free the kids.
The world-building here is excellent. Summerfield has a rich history with lots of stories and myths behind it. I especially enjoyed how there were so many creatures in Summerfield including dragons and faeries. I can’t wait to read more.
Fans of fantasy will devour this book!
