I am so excited about this blog stop
I get to reveal the awesomness that is...
I loved this book so much, Ryn has spunk, attetude the looks and the sting!
Ryn: is Vi’s rival, the guy who’s tried his best to make her life a misery at the Guild
Age is 18
Family: I’d rather not talk about my family situation.
Likes: Training, staying up to date with the latest spells and magical gadgets, pegasus polo (I played when I was younger, but now I just follow the main teams), reading, obstacle courses (I wish they’d do them more often in training).
Dislikes: Those pipsqueak first-years (we were never that pathetic, I’m sure), that emo music Aria put on my sound drops, Violet, emotional people, being told what to do.
Current life status: In my final year of training with the Guild.
Current purpose in life: I haven’t visited my mentor yet today for an assignment update, but it’s probably something epic like saving the life of a super-hot damsel in distress.
Plans for the future: Get a job with the Guild, but not the one in Creepy Hollow. I’d like to get far away from here. (And if I could graduate top of the class, thereby kicking Violet’s ass, that would be good too.)
Special skills: I’m a guardian. Do you have to ask?
Anything else you’d like to add: No. Stop asking me personal questions.
(Told from Violet’s point of view)
A figure appears between the trees and my heart sinks when I see who it is. I’m definitely not getting out of this one.
“Ryn,” I say, trying to keep my voice even. “Back so soon? That’s unlike you. I heard you came in second to last for the previous assignment.”
Ryn stops and leans against a tree, tossing a ball of moonlight back and forth. Its glow dances across his face and causes his blue-black hair to gleam. “Don’t you mean second, Pixie Sticks? I would have thought you’d pay more attention to your closest competition.”
“I would—if you were competition worth paying attention to.”
Ryn’s eyes narrow. He opens his mouth to speak, then freezes, his eyes moving to the boy beside me. He pushes away from the tree and steps closer. “You have a friend, Pixie Sticks?” he says. “You’ve actually managed to find someone willing to—” He breaks off and stares at Nate for several moments. His eyes slide back to mine, and a grin spreads across his face.
“Well, well, well. Look who broke rule number one.” He spins the ball of moonlight on the tip of his finger before squashing it into nothing between his palms. “Tell me, Pixie Sticks, how does it feel to fail an assignment?”
My mental call is automatic, and barely a second passes before my bow and arrow are blazing between my fingers. I point the arrow directly at Ryn. He flicks his wrist, almost too fast to follow. A whip with as much fiery brilliance as my own weapon appears in his hand with a snap.
“Wanna play?” he says, his voice low and dangerous.
How much did I love the book?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow! First of all, this is so not my genre. How ignorant of me, assuming all Faerie books would be sweet and girly. How stupid of me as a writer not to consider the possibilities... Rachel I adored this book, devoured it! A very talented author, who works magic with words and scenes. I loved it from page one, action... action.. action... romance... action...romance and some sad and broken scenes, conflict and magic. Everything to keep you on your toes all the way through. I didnt want it to end. I still dont want it to end. Characters were spectacular, the world was amazing. Why I loved this book so so much besides of the obvious mentioned above. I write what I want to read, and here Rachel reminded me of every little element I create to keep readers enticed and begging for more. Well I am begging for more.The plot was brilliantly put together, there was attitude, violence, love, sorrow, guilt and attitude and more attitude. I cannot say enough about this book, just read it!
