The Faerie War was absolutely amazing! I devoured it and loved every second. I am so sad it is over though. The Creepy Hollow series is one you all should be thinking of adding to your library!

The Faerie War starts off with Violet... only she is a little different. Yep, she lost her memory. Everyone is preparing to go into hiding from the mysterious being destroying Creepy Hollow. The beginning was very exciting as you are plunged straight into the world with no time to be bored! Also, lucky for

I was a little nervous about reading this book, because the finales in the last few trilogies I've read have all disappointed me (cough cough, The Hunger Games, cough cough, Delirium). Thank goodness, The Faerie War bucked the trend and did the rest of the series justice.

In the previous books, Violet was my favourite character, but Ryn stole the show for me in this one. All of my favourite moments were either when he was narrating or at least in the scene. I think my absolute favourite part was

The Faerie War is the concluding novel of the Creepy Hollow Trilogy that follows the faerie Violet Fairdale.
I felt that this last book fell a little flat. It was shorter than the other two and it showed. The events were happening at an incredible speed which made me feel like it was all rushed, and the problems did not get solved with the right speed. There was this IMMENSE issue somewhere during the end right? And in like 2 pgaes they had already solved it and moved on to the next obstacle

Holy Crap!!!! This book was absolutely blow your pants off fantastic! After the ending of The Faerie Prince I genuinelly could not wait to read this book and find out what was going to happen. The Faerie War did not disappoint and a part of me is devastated that Violet and Ryn's story is over. I'm going to miss them so much!

The Faerie War was a little harder for me to get into than the previous two books in this series. A part of me was dying to find out what was

I felt this was a great ending to a wonderful series. Even though it shows it is a seven books series, this is the last story with our MC's in them. The others go on and focus on other players in the same world. I will probably read them in the future but not right now.

For those of you that pay attention, this is one of my all time favorite series, I have read it about three times so far and I'm sure I will read it again in the future. Violet is just my k

This was a great story with wonderful tension and a great cast of characters--especially the new ones. As the conclusion of the trilogy, I loved how the story took us to new grounds, new environments, and greater conflicts. My only issue is that the reader is more in the know at the beginning of the book than the characters, and we just have to wait for them to catch up. That doesn't last for too long, but if you go in expecting that, you'll be prepared to enjoy a wonderful book.

What a ride! I was so nervous to start this book and had many moments of panic while I read it because I discovered something: Rachel Morgan likes to spring unexpected surprises on her readers!! I won’t spoil anything in this review though. Let’s just say that my heart had ALL the feels by the end!!

Bloody marvelous! My nerves are shot, my nails are non-existent, but what a ride the fabulous Ms Morgan took me on!
This was pretty good but I'm not a huge fan of the amnesia trope and while I do like Violet and Ryn's relationship I just spent the LAST book watching them fall in love so I really don't also need to spend this one watching them do the exact same thing only Violet has amnesia. Also I figured out who the spy was like right away so that wasn't terribly riveting. Still it was a good story and I do like this world. ...more

A few spoilers will exist in this review, so read at your own discretion.

I will start by saying I loved this series. While I immediately loved book 1 &2, book 3 was a more of a challenge to love. We were left with a big time cliff hanger at the end of 2 that I was curious on where it was going to go.

With that being said, I was frustrated for a few reasons. I felt like the memory loss part just dragged on a bit, and I really didn't like the scenes with the Reptiscilla. I thought her connection

Vi thinks someone made her forget LOL! there's someone, Violet, meet Violet xD

I was really confused by how the faerie prince ended. I didn't know what to think of Vi's decision. I know she was hurting but it kind of prolong the story more than it should. However, getting into the story of the third book, there are new characters who were easily likable as this is the case with this series. But Violet meets these people and they form an alliance to take down Draven who is on a destructive path in

I am totally in LOVE with this series. This book is the one where the real action kicked in. This whole book is just packed with action, drama, love, forgotten love and love that returns. Sneaky people are a big part too and nobody seems to be who they pretend to be. Some turn out positive, some turn out to be assholes.
I'll have a really hard time to say goodbye too Ryn and Violet. It'll be hard to accept Calla taking over in book 4, but I'm happy Ryn and Violet will be living happily ever after

I enjoyed the ending to Violet and Ryn's story. A lot happens to these two, but they grow and come to understand their circumstances, themselves and each other so much more as this portion of the Creepy Hallow series closes out.

I wasn't sure from book 1 where this series was going to end up, but I'm glad I read through these 3 books this weekend. The characters grew and became characters I wanted to get behind while the storyline moved quickly through the trails and tribulations these two would

well I Really liked the romance in this one but other than that I must say it was a bit of a throwback in the action and character development department. and the ending was a bit too rushed and easy for my liking but I think this trilogy was really cool and I will definitely read the second trilogy as well!

The closest series to Chanda Hahn's Unfortunate Fairy tales series. This is where I ended with the series. I felt like I was fine with the ending of this one and wasn't interested in continuing/spending more money on the series. These things can go on forever. ...more

The second book clearly was an in between book, crafting relationships and friendships and moving characters from A to B so we could get ready for the epic finale of Violet's tale. And as soon as I started this book I already knew that it was truly going to be epic. I started reading and I actually didn't want to stop anymore before I finished.

My Thoughts:

The Faerie War, by Rachel Morgan, is the third and final book in the Creepy Hollow Series. I have been a huge fan of these books since I began the first book in the series, The Faerie Guardian. I think all of the book covers in this series are absolutely beautiful, magical looking, and reflect the "feel" of the series itself. Whenever, I read a book from the Creepy Hollow Series, I am transported to another realm. Creepy Hollow might have come from Ms. Morgan's outstanding and creati

• ⭐️:4,3/5

💬: After the end of the previous book I was dying to read this one, specially because after the destruction of Violet’s guild she also has no memory of the people and things she loved. Ryn is away doing a secret mission and I just knew that there would be angst between them on this book, afterwall, she forgot the guy she loved and he has no idea until they met each other after weeks of thinking she was dead.

I'm not sure why the cover image with the guy (Ryn? Draven?) is featured, MY Kindle edition has Violet on the cover, which matches with the first two books, and I like that much better. For the consistency, and because Violet is the star here.

Loved Ryn and Violet, their love, the war, the thrill, the climax, the epic last chapters and oh! the emotional ups and downs? Goodness! My heart broke when Ryn and vi met and all the rest of time until there was hope but then there wasn’t oh but then there was and then it was gone again! I love how Rachel Morgan wrote everything.

Eh, arround 3.8 stars.

Its fun, but the whole memory thing annoyed me and was ,quite frankly,a completely unnecessary plot device that really didn't accomplish a whole lot. Otherwise, good writing as always, funny dialogue, and heart-warming characters.

A little bit dragging pace but overall its good.
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

The third and final book in the guardian series just might be the best one yet. I was very excited when I heard this was coming out. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC in exchange for a review, which I was very happy to do since I loved the first 2 books. I had been waiting for this one to come out for what seems like years (it was months!), so I started reading it the day it was sent to me and finished it the same day. 

I was pleasantly surprised.

As much of a bookworm as I am, it's still not often that I read two whole books in one day. But once I finished the second book in this series, I just had to keep going. And once I started this one, I just had to know how it would end! So my nocturnal, binge-reading mode activated, and there was no turning back. But anyway, as for why I liked the book so much that I had to activate my binge-read mode...
