Goodreads Synopsis:


Emerson Clarke: Sarcastic. Independent. Possibly losing her mind.

Because that’s the only explanation for why she occasionally sees things that aren’t there, right? But one night, an impossible power erupts from her, and Em realizes the truth is crazier than she ever thought: she isn’t losing her mind; she’s magical.
Thrown into an entirely new world of faeries, enchantments—and the annoying guy from down the road who, it turns out, isn’t human either—Em barely has time to learn even the most basic of magic before another startling truth reveals itself: she has a Griffin Ability. A special kind of magic feared by most fae. Now she’s at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list—including the mysterious glass faerie carrying out random attacks on fae.
In this magical and terrifying world that she’s entirely unprepared for, Em must try to figure out who she really is, whom to trust, and how to stay alive long enough to get back to her normal life.



Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I am so happy that I have my hands on this book. It has been sitting on my shelf for a while now and I am so happy that I can finally get to it. I am picking this book up for the Shelflove care readathon. I am hoping that it flies by and I am excited to see what this world looks like eighteen years later.

Thank you so much to Rachel Morgan for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

One of the things that I love about Rachel Morgan is her writing style. It is consistent and constantly draws you in. If you would like a more in-depth look at what I thought about her writing, then you can find that information here.

Plot Thoughts:

I liked the plot in this book. It did take a while for it to unfold but I liked the change of pace. I loved seeing the other side of things. I remember thinking in the first part of this series that I wanted to see a storyline where we are introduced to someone who does not know about the magical world and I am so happy that we got that. I think that it allows us to see the world of Creepy Hollow in a new light where things aren't met with a sense of familiarity. I did feel as though we were stuck in the same place and the same scenario over and over again. Sometimes it worked but other times it seemed to be getting a bit much.

Character Thoughts:

I really enjoyed reading about Emerson. She was strong and resilient despite what had been thrown her way. She, much like the other female characters in the series, is a strong female lead. She does have these moments where you can see that she is struggling but her drive to help those who she cares about it a really great quality.


Final Thoughts:

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It provided a different viewpoint from the previous books in the series and it was great to see some faces showing up. The writing in this series is so great. The author has managed to keep the style consistent whilst still growing a bit. The plot was good but I did feel as though there was too much repetition when it came to one topic. I really enjoyed Emerson's character and her driven nature is very inspiring. I cannot wait to read more about her. Thank you so much to Rachel Morgan for providing me with a copy of this book to review.

Yours in Reading,

Melleny
