Meet the Author--RACHEL MORGAN!
Rachel Morgan is the author of the Creepy Hollow YA fantasy series. Rachel was born in South Africa and spent a large portion of her childhood living in a fantasy land of her own making. After completing a degree in genetics, she decided science wasn’t for her—after all, they didn’t approve of made-up facts. These days she spends much of her time immersed in fantasy land once more, writing fiction for young adults.
She is doing a blog hop to celebrate the launch of The Faerie Guardian. Below is a behind-the-scenes video of her life in South Africa where she teaches and writes. She's also busy moving and planning her wedding! I had such fun meeting her (virtually)! Visit her blog to find more of the blogs she's visiting this week and to learn more about her, her books and her characters.
The Faerie Guardian is the first of three novels. Initially, Rachel published each of the novel's four parts as novelettes, so since I purchased all four as fast as they were released, I've read it in its entirety (although, The Faerie Guardian has extra scenes included, and you can get it in print edition!!!). I couldn't get my eyes on the novelette's words fast enough--they were that good! She creates world so real it's like I'm there. Her characters are believable, strong and make me laugh. The romance and action keep the pages turning and turning and turning. It'll be like you're sitting in front of a fan!
THE FAERIE GUARDIAN
(Book 1 in the Creepy Hollow series)
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 alive.
