The Faerie War by Rachel Morgan

THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE SECOND BOOK

Goodreads Synopsis: Violet Fairdale is in big trouble. Her home is gone, her beloved forest lies in ruins, the guy she gave her heart to has deserted her—and she doesn’t remember any of it. The powerful Lord Draven is taking over, brainwashing guardians into fighting for him. No one is safe from the evil spreading throughout the fae world.

As alliances are forged between the remaining free fae, Vi struggles to reclaim her identity and figure out where she belongs in this new world. When someone from her past shows up, life gets even more complicated. He brings with him a long-forgotten weapon and an ancient prophecy that places Vi at the center of the fight against Draven. With the future of the fae world at stake, can Vi carry out the prophecy’s instructions before it’s too late?

I had a hard time getting into the first half of this book. I’m positive it was just the mood I was in and not the book itself.

At the end of the second book, Violet took the potion she had strengthened by Uri and loses her memories. This book starts off with Vi in the Underground living amongst the Repticilla with no memory about her past. Even though the Repticilla were described as scaly fae, I couldn’t help but picture Argonians (Skyrim), haha. I was a bit worried about Vi’s relationship with Jamon at first, but I was worrying over nothing.

While Violet is Underground, Ryn is on a secret mission to find a blade that can kill Draven, but only if the right person, the “Star”, is wielding it. I really enjoyed Ryn’s point of view. I really love multiple point of views in general, and I really love Ryn.

Eventually Ryn and Violet run into each other, and thanks to the potion, Violet has no idea who Ryn is. That scene made my heart hurt. Ryn of course tries to win Violet’s heart all over again.

So much happens in this book. Plot twists galore! Lots of feels! Lots of action. The end battle scene was kind of weak and short in my opinion, but I imagine Rachel Morgan was trying to keep it clean and young reader friendly.

All around, The Faerie War is a beautiful wrap up to Violet’s story.

I really like how there isn’t a love triangle throughout the books. The romance is PG, which is refreshing. Violet is a good role model for younger girls.

So as I mentioned above, this is the end of Violet’s story

Books four, five, and six will be told from Ryn’s little sister Calla’s perspective ten years after the events of The Faerie War. I’ll be starting A Faerie’s Secret tonight in preparation for A Faerie’s Revenge which will be released next month.

No idea who books seven, eight, and nine will be about.

Ah! These books are so good guys. Even if you don’t like faeries, please try reading them. I’m a broken record… The Faerie Guardian is free for Kindle, Nook, Kobo, etc wherever you can purchase ebooks. READ THEM! 😛
