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 not 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 law world at stake, can Vi carry out the prophecy's instructions before it's too late?

Book Review:

If you would like to see my review for the first and second book, you can find here and here respectively
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I need answers. The pervious book ended in the worst way possible and I need to know what happens. I need to know what happens to Vi now that she has forgotten everything and I need to know what happens to Ryn. I just need to know what happens. I have shifted my TBR so that I can jump into this book right away. 

Thank you so much to the author, Rachel Morgan, for sending me a copy of her book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing in this book and in this series is just wow. I loved how, in this book, the author started to describe the surroundings of the characters a bit more. I became more immersed in the world as a result of this. I could feel the wind whipping through my hair and the snow stinging my cheeks. It was as if I was there. It was great to see how the author's writing developed a little more. It was really great. The flow of the sentences and the pace was just amazing! It really helped in pushing me further into the world and finishing this book a lot quicker than I thought it would.

Plot Thoughts:

The book took an interesting spin seeing as Violet forget everything that she loved. It was interesting to see how different the world looked to the Violet and it was great to see how despite the tragedy that befell her, she was able to become a better person. I loved how everything unfolded and how Violet's story concluded. I am definitely interested in seeing how her story continues in the rest of the books.

The plot was full of action and amazing new things (aka dragons!) were introduced and it was great to see how the world came together after the events of the second book. I really liked how you couldn't actually get bored with the world. The book really just pulls you in and takes you on an epic adventure!

Character Thoughts:

With Violet being a new person, it was interesting to see how she still remained the same but also how she matured into the person she has become now. It was really great to see the character arc that she went through. 

I am also really happy that we got to read a bit from Ryn's perspective. It allowed us a little insight to him as a character and how he worked through that had happened to Violet. It just allowed the author to breathe a bit more life into Ryn as a character.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I really really enjoyed this book. But I thought that the second book was a little better than this one. I loved to see how the author's writing developed from the second book to this one. The writing was more descriptive and felt a lot more solid. The flow was smoother and the pace was perfect. The plot was well thought through and it was amazing to see how every person worked together after everything that happened in the second book. Violet went through some character development in the third book which was spectacular. She became a more mature person and seemed to leave behind her old ways. She embraces who she was before but she also accepts that there were somethings that she could do better. I really loved Violet's story and as an introduction to the Creepy Hollow world, I think it was fantastic!

Thank you so much to the author for sending me a copy of this book! I cannot wait to see what the rest of the series has in store! 

Yours in Reading,
