Rachel Morgan's Guardian

Rachel Morgan over at Rachel Morgan Writes is celebrating the release of her novelette today. I'm not usually a lover of faces on covers but I adore this one. How could I not, when my favourite colour is purple?

I'm delighted to announce that Rachel will be visiting here on Wednesday, but for now let her tell you about the book.

Today the Creepy Hollow series kicks off with the release of the first story, GUARDIAN.
GUARDIAN introduces readers to the magical world of Creepy Hollow, a realm where fae creatures both safe and definitely-not-so-safe dwell. Things are cool as long the fae stick to their own realm. It's when they find their way into the human world that things start going wrong...


1. Receive assignment.
2. Save a life.
3. Sleep.
4. Repeat.

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 one of her assignments—a human boy who shouldn’t even be able to see her—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? But Nate and Vi are about to land themselves in even bigger trouble—and it’ll take all Vi’s training to get them out alive.

  40. The trailer did it's job, leaving me wanting to read the book. when it comes to reading, I am begining to feel helpless because by the time I come to the second half of the book, I forget what I read in the first half. It took me a very long time to finish Elizebeth Gilbert's book. I regret not reading in my younger years, but who would choose reading over playing with babies and kids? I guess by now, I know you enough to be able to vent to you.

    1. Munir, we're friends now. Vent whenever you want :-)
      I know what you mean though, when the girls were small, I don't think I read anything beyond a picture book for about five years.

    1. And now I want to write something with a violet eye in it! Not a gemstone, too obvious. Hmm ... ideas ...
