*** For those of you who have not read the previous three novelettes - Guardian, Labyrinth, and Traitor - this review will contain some spoilers. So just be aware...

After her now ex-boyfriend Nate betrays her to her enemies, Violet barely escapes the confrontation with her life. Heartbroken, gravely injured and beyond saving herself, Violet finds rescue coming from the unlikeliest of persons - Ryn. However, as can be expected, help comes with a price... and a whole lot of snarky comme

Creepy Hollow #4: Masquerade by Rachel Morgan

4/5 stars

Nate is a rat bastard!!!! Masquerade opens with Violet having discovered Nate is a wretched, awful, rat bastard, traitor!! Oh, and Violet is seriously wounded from her encounter with Scarlett’s newly identified boss, Zell. The cherries on top of this fantastically awful sundae:

1)Zell is no ordinary faerie but a prince of the Unseelie Court
2)Not only is the rat bastard a Halfling, he is a Halfling with

Masquerade is the fourth story in Rachel Morgan's Creepy Hollow series and I would highly recommend reading them in order or you won't be able to follow the ongoing plot. I'm going to warn you now that this review will contain spoilers for previous stories so if you haven't started reading it yet then look no further. I can recommend checking out the first story Guardian though.

After the shocking betrayal at the end of Traitor Violet barely escapes her latest battle with Zell with her life. Badl

This is the fourth Creepy Hollow novelette and follows up directly on the events of the third (Traitor). Masquerade has a lot of depth, all of which will be lost if you're not familiar with what has come before. Start at the beginning (Guardian). **This review contains no spoilers for Masquerade but will by necessity have some for the previous books.**

Coldly betrayed by someone she trusted and hunted by those who've discovered her secret ability to find things, things can't get much worse for se

This series is turning out to be a book soap opera guilty pleasure (without the smut). I am hooked! Ms. Morgan can weave and tell a captivating story. Oddly enough, I'm not a great fan of Violet, the main protagonist, but the people surrounding her sure makes her life interesting and therefore the read quite entertaining. This time around, we find out more about Ryn, her supposed arch rival. We discover that he has a soft spot. A great reminder that what you see of a person may just be the

The next installment to the Creepy Hollow series, Rachel Morgan’s MASQUERADE not only fills in the pieces of what has gone before the series, but it excites with adventure, heart break, and possible friendship.

Violet’s boyfriend betrayed her, and she decides to forget her feelings toward him. While her friend creates the potion, her enemy Ryn not only saves her life but asks for her help in finding his sister. Vi wants to ignore his request, but she can’t. As Vi and Ryn work together to find his

I enjoyed this continuation of the Creepy Hollow story, but I was expecting more than this installment delivered. As usual, it was very well-written, well-paced, and flowed well - the author is a fantastic writer - but, the voice didn't have the same spark to it that made me fall in love with the previous installments. I can't quite define what was missing, but the tone of the story shifted in a new direction. Maybe this is a danger of writing a story in separate installments rather than as one ...more

After reading Traitor, I was fairly certain I'm going to get worked up hating Nate the jerk even though I sort of didn't like him in the first place, just for Violet's sake. Then I read Masquerade and HOLY...[profanities]. What was that? WHAT WAS THAT? Why, oh why, did it have to end there? Just when I thought I was getting to the best part.. turns out THAT part is where I die. I won't say anymore about this series, just that you read it! It's short and won't take up much of your time but will t ...more

Ryn and Violet were childhood friends, but when Ryn’s brother died Ryn turned his back on Violet and has been a pain in her side ever since. But in MASQUERADE, Ryn’s sister is missing and he needs Violet’s help to find her. Could teaming up with her rival create sparks?

This is a fun and fast paced series that I highly recommend.
