Driven by action, suspense, and a strong heroine, this bestselling YA fantasy will keep you turning the pages ...

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 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?

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 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.

Violet doesn't remember a thing. She barely remembers her own name, but the markings on her wrist tell the reptiscillans she's living among that she's a Guardian - and dangerous. Meanwhile, Ryn is on the other side of the world, chasing down what seems to be a myth in the hopes of destroying the evil threatening to invade the faerie realms. He has no idea what Lord Draven has already done. The fight is on, for love, for forgiveness, and for the preservation of the faerie realm and beyond. Wow! What an incredible end to the saga (and I say end, even though there are additional books in the series, because this feels like the end of a trilogy that was expanded). You basically have to watch Violet and Ryn struggle through their relationship all over again, while holding your breath as the faerie world is pummeled, assaulted, and destroyed. This book gave me all the feels, and I'm anxious to get started with the next books in the series!

This story continues where #2 left off and is just as good as the first two books. The plot is awesome. The story is well written and makes you feel like you are right there. I also love the chapters at the end of the story that give more insight into Ryn and Amon. I loved this book and will probably read it again in the future.

Vi has lost her memory and has been taken in by a group of Reptiscilla. Because she lost her memory she doesn’t really know what she has gotten herself into but she works to gain their trust. Ryn has been on his own mission and when he returns he learns of the destruction to Creepy Hollow. Ryn is upset when he learns about the loss of Vi’s memories but he tries that much harder to rekindle her love for him. All the while the group is fighting Draven’s marked and trying to save fae. If you thought the first two books were great, sit back and wait for the real ride to start. I had a hard time with Vi drinking the forgetting potion but it was so much worse when Ryn finds her and realizes that she doesn’t remember him. Then there is Nate. But there is no time for all of that. Draven is tearing Creepy Hollow and fae apart with his marked. This is the end of the Vi and Ryn story. It was beautifully done and wrapped up well. I don’t know how it’s going to feel with Calla taking over the series but we will soon see. This is an amazing story that you have to read. It’s got so much more action, romance, and great characters. I received a The Faerie Guardian for free from Refracted Light Reviews in exchange for an honest review.

WOW. What an epic conclusion of Ryn and Violet's story! So much happened in this book, and it was all amazing. Lots of adventure, lovable new characters, and some surprises and plot twists! And oh, how my heart broke for Ryn in this book. But it's okay, it's all fine now. *deep breaths* What a wonderful writing job. Simply outstanding. I loved the ending of this book, and I honestly don't think it could have been done any better. Absolutely a five star read. Simply magical.

Nooooooo! The next book isn't out yet, and I want MORE! Wow! What an ending to the first timeline of the series. The next book occurs a few years later. But back to this book! I teared up a few times. The thing I like most about this series is how real the characters emotions, reactions, thought processes are. Not everything that happens is happy, but it all makes sense. Characters act appropriately for the circumstances, and the extra scenes (at least included in the set), give you other character point of views to fill in key scenes after the fact. It's just wonderfully written and it feels fresh. A lot of fresh ideas and story points. I also love how well the action is written. You can "see" everything in your mind's eye. I LOVE this series! I received the first three books free in exchange for reviews but I'm going to buy them anyway just to thank the author. Great series! I can't wait for the next book!!!

I am so painfully emotionally invested in the characters in this book that reading the last few pages to the very end was truly heartbreaking for me. I dread not being able to learn more about them, especially Violet and Ryn. All I want is more, and I already pre-ordered the fourth book to come, although I get the impression that the story will no longer be wrapped around Vi's character. Although that thought saddens me, I couldn't be more excited for June so that I can continue reading about Creepy Hollow. My only hope is that this series never ends, not for a long time at least.
