    Fantastic Conclusion!






    What a conclusion! This series has quickly become one of my favorites, and possibly my favorite books about the fey. The Faerie War was a wonderfully detailed book, with amazing characters, tough choices, and a love that can survive anything. 

    At the start of the book, I pretty much had no clue what was going on. I'd forgotten everything that happened in the ending of The Faerie Prince, so I went back to that to familiarize myself with where this novel started. And as with the first two books, I was hooked.

    I loved these two characters, Violet and Ryn. In the first book, they're enemies, in the second book their feelings are developing from friendship to romantic, and in the third book, they have some trouble. Trouble as in Violet took a Forget Me potion and now doesn't remember ANYTHING about her life. Except her name and age. Her memories are gone, locked away in the recesses of her mind, and she can't find them. And a month after The Destruction of Creepy Hollow, Violet is living with Reptiscillas, the creatures she used to hunt down as a guardian. While there, Violet makes friends, tries to regain her memory, and realizes that it's her fault Draven is still alive. Though, she definitely shouldn't be shouldering the full blame for that one. However, she does need to shoulder the blame for her not remembering anything, because she took the potion herself. No one made her do it, and Violet hates that she can't even remember what made her so devastated that she just wanted to forget it.

    Poor Ryn. He finds Violet only to realize she's lost her memory of him and doesn't even remember how she feels about him. And Ryn knows how she felt about him, because he can feel other people's emotions. It's his special talent. I liked the character development that Ryn went through during the series. From arrogance and cruelty to kindness and determination to save the woman he loves. I think he's had the most growth, and it never felt forced or ingenuine. It always felt true and real. Just like his and Violet's relationship, which has taken a huge blow after the forget me potion incident. I enjoyed watching them find each other again, even with all of the confusion and desperation. 

    Because of her love for Ryn, Violet was able to take back her memories. And now many things are clear. Like, why she did it and what happened with Draven. He's still out there, and he will stop at nothing to have the whole world, the fey and human ones combined, in the palm of his hands. And he has the power to do it, to bring on that kind of devastation and destruction. He's already done it to all of the Guilds and to Creepy Hollow, but the fey must band together to stop him from laying waste to the rest of the world. 

    The Faerie War was filled with action and suspense. That underlying desperation and determination never slowed down, not even when the plot and the conversations between the characters did. I loved watching Ryn and Violet fall in love again. And I liked that the plot wasn't so full of action scenes that it forgot about its characters. While there's obviously that looming good vs. evil war, the relationships and bonds all these characters form was awesome to see. I thought the action leading up to the climax and to the final battle against Draven were well-written, and I thought they were just the right amount. It didn't get over too fast or too slow. The descriptions and imagery were so very well-detailed, and I felt like I was there right along with Violet, Ryn, Filigree, and all the rest. 

    I really, really loved this series!

    I'll keep this as spoiler free for the series as possible. The last book ended with quite a shocking event. There was destruction, death and Violet losing her memory. Now the faerie world is in hiding from Draven and his evil ways. He has faeries marked and brainwashed and is slowly taking over the faerie kingdom. Violet lost without her memory joins an unlikely group and together they figure out how to stop him. Loved the new characters and the expansion of the world building and what it means to be a guardian and how they are not as perfect as we were first lead to believe.

    Ryn is obviously sad and worried about Violet's memory loss but luckily he is easy to fall in love with and we get to see Violet fall in love with him all over again. No lack of swoontastic quotes. I marked many passages in my kindle. I love their dates with the glow worm butts lighting the mood. LOL Lots of great romantic moments even in the middle of a war. But it is war indeed so there is more death and destruction and even some crying on my part which I'm sure you all know I'm a big softie by now.

    The enemy used to be someone different in the beginning. He was a character I really liked and then he got pushed into a world he didn't understand and didn't know how to escape from. It was sad that things had to go that way for him. I liked that it was different and quite a turn of events. Not something I had predicted at all but I felt really bad for him. Other than that I was very happy with the way things turned out. Great ending! Great series! So sad it is over :-(

    All of the Faerie Realms are in a state of destruction. The Guil

    All of the Faerie Realms are in a state of destruction. The Guilds are destroyed the Guardians brainwashed into working for Draven. And Violet Fairdale is being held captive by the Reptiscilla, the fae she once hunted as a Guardian herself. But she doesn't remember any of it. She has no memories. And she isn't sure if someone did this to her or if she did it to herself. The only thing from her past that she has is a note in her pocket from someone that says he had to leave without saying goodbye but he would return soon. And his name "Ryn".




    Ryn in the meantime is on what he considers a pointless mission to find something for Vi's father, some ancient artifact needed to kill Draven. But he believes his search is in vain. The landmarks just aren't there and they are so ancient who's to say they haven't disappeared completely. Until he practically falls into the entrance to the cave.




    And the rest of the fae? The ones that haven't fallen to Draven's brainwashing? They are in a secret location building allies with the other fae preparing to make a stand.




    This is definitely more action than the other two books in the series. Vi has no memory for most of the book and in fact only accidentally runs into Ryn who rescues her and Jamon, the reptiscilla she's been hiding out with. Ryn, is patient and kind, trying to help her remember him, but never pushing her, however, there is work going on in the lab to fix a potion to bring her memory back when they ascertain she took a "forget" potion. 




    In the meantime Vi has to figure out who she is. The author does something really interesting with her main character in this last book. Vi grows, but she softens and allows for some mistakes, some humanity, some emotion to show through. All the things you'd think would make your character weak, it makes Vi vulnerable and I think I like her most in this book. I finally realized how gruff and removed she was in the previous two books. But in this one, even though she doesn't know who she is, she'll accept a challenge from Ryn when they are in a rough situation because she thinks that sounds like something Vi would do. But the need to be the best, one up someone, have the best time, that girl is gone. Her walls have dropped and she is a much nicer, kinder person for it. She notices more, she loves more, she feels more. It makes her a better guardian and person. She needs that when she finds out what caused the destruction of the Faerie Realms.




    Ryn, is changed. His playfulness is gone. Times are serious. His mother is missing and even though he's found Vi, she doesn't remember him. Did she want to forget him? And how will they beat Draven? He has the power, the numbers and the magic. They only have one weapon and very little to go on to find the one that can deliver the death blow. But Ryn is a never say never kind of guy and he thinks outside of the box. If you were ever to get trapped in a dungeon for five days separated by a brick wall from someone for, hope it's Ryn. Just sayin', he'll keep you entertained....




    I have loved this series and I'm so sad to have it end, but there were some amazing twists throughout the whole series and this one as well that made it so fresh. I love Rachel Morgan's spin on Faerie and I really can't wait to see what else she has in store for the future. This is a definite must for lovers of Faerie Tales.
    Probably a PG-13 book. Maybe just PG.

    It is such an amazing feeling when you find a series that you cannot put down for a second. Where you finish one book, and instantly buy the next and start it because you just have to know what happens next. Where you actually may force yourself to stop so that the book will last just a little longer. The Creepy Hollow series was that for me. I was hooked in book one, and by The Faerie War, I was in love with everything this series has to offer. And yes, I am definitely in book depression now that it is over. 




    Violet is one of those characters, that regardless of what she's been put through or what she does to herself, you cannot help but adore her. She's fierce and strong and definitely her own person. Then on the other side, Ryn, you are forever my love. In the first book, I knew I hearted you. In The Faerie Prince, I grew to just love and adore you and finally in this last installment you have easily become a favorite book boyfriend of mine. I just adored watching these two fight the world together (whether they were fighting or not).




    I have to throw a shout out to Arthur...YES the shrinking dragon! I want one. With The Faerie War, I love how everything built up to multiple moments that you knew were hopefully coming and just couldn't wait to read about. I also loved all the new characters and work building we see in this last book. Overall, I absolutely adored this series. If you're looking for a fun but dark, fast-paced, awesome fae read, definitely give this series a shot!

    Great series. I read all three in a week and loved them. Great world building by the author in each book. I loved the characters, although 
    I may not have had Violet lose her memory-but the story worked even with the memory loss component. The only weakness was the epic  
    scene fight scene, I felt it went a bit too easy and fast--too much lead up to it to end so quickly. But I would still recommend it for any teen readers who love magic and 
    action laced with romance.

    The last book was great! I loved all the twists and turns and this story will keep on the edge of your seat in a great way! I an sad to see this end. This is the best trilogy I have read by far. I always wanted a book with faeries being the main characters in the book. I can not wait to see what else Rachel Morgan writes in the future. I LOVE fantasy. If you likes the first two books, you will love this one too. I will be keeping an eye out for Rachel Morgan's books.
