Also, main characters from the original trilogy are now side characters in this one. But Calla also appears in the original trilogy as a little kid since she's male protagonist's sister. I honestly love the original trilogy, and the first book is free on Amazon so you can check it out.(less)

This series will be the death of me.

Let me tell you a few things about this book:
--Calla is one bad-ass lady.Her life is not easy but when she wants something she does everything get it and works hard to accomplish her goals.
--The book becomes fast-paced after about 50 pages,just like the previous three books.
--There's some amazing action.A lot of amazing action,to be honest.Who doesn't like reading about awesome lady kicking everyone's ass?And,well,occasionally getting her ass kicked,haha.(▰◡▰)

This book starts a new arc with mostly new characters though they are related to to the first arc. Ryn and Vi are now background characters. It also seems a reset as Calla, Ryn's younger sister joins the guild. I don't find Calla as a compelling a character as Vi but it's still a good read.

OMG The ending! I kind of thought that was what was going to happen but I have so many questions as to how?!?! And it's kind of weird! (view spoiler)
Loved seeing Ryn and Vi together again!
Can I just say that I love that the Creepy Hollow series is not finished? It’s always bittersweet leaving a world behind when finishing a series, and I thought when reading The Faerie War (Creepy Hollow Book #3) that that was the last new adventure I’d have with Violet and Ryn in the world of Creepy Hollow. Thankfully, not so. Or not completely anyway. A Faerie’s Secret picks up almost a decade after the fall of Draven, but while Vi, Ryn and some other familiar faces make some cameos, this time ...more

This book was a great, fast-paced, roller coaster of a ride…with a sudden stop at the end that left me dazed, confused and hoping that Ms. Morgan gets the next book out in record time!! I loved this series when, in the first 3 books, Violet was the kick-butt hero. And, honestly, I wondered how I’d like a new main character…but, good news…I loved her!! Calla’s is fierce, smart and sassy, and I know that her story will be a non-stop adventure. Bring it on!!

It felt like being home…reading about Cre

I have waited so long to be able to review this, and the time has come!
This is the fourth book in this incredible series and it takes place 10 years after the last book. The main character is now Calla, instead of Violet.
I am so glad to say that it's still action packed and even more intriguing than the others. Rachel has become one of my abs

My Thoughts:

I've missed the magical realm of Creepy Hollow, but it is a place that once visited, you could never forget. The setting is a place full of wonderment, beautiful bright colors, and fantastical creatures. The fae are who lie at the heart of this series. Specifically, guardians, those that go through rigorous, lengthy, and extensive training to serve and protect.

Calla wants to be a faerie guardian more than anything else. Her father use to be one, and her older half brother, Ryn, is o
It has been soooo long since I read book 3 that it definitely took me while to remember the background info for this series. It helps that this book is focusing on a new character - Calla [who is Ryn's younger sister, another thing I forgot] - but I would still recommend not waiting like a year and a half between reading these. Honestly I would probably not be continuing with this series if I hadn't bought books 1-6 in a 99c bundle. They aren't bad but they're just very simple YA romance most of ...more

I don't even know where to begin with this book because it was simply such an amazing read! Fast-paced, fun, and filled to the brim with exciting adventures, I never wanted this book to end. It was so nice to be back in Creepy Hollow, seeing old favorites return, and (kind of) new characters finding a new place in my heart. It's not secret that I love this series, and Ms. Morgan does a fantastic job at bridging the ori

Calla Larkenwood thought she only had to keep her Griffin Ability a secret, but other secrets threaten to turn her life upside down in Rachel Morgan's A Faerie's Secret. Although not quite as kick-butt as her brother's wife Vi, Calla has her moments and will do anything in her power to help, even use her special gift when she's not supposed to. I found it refreshing to have a main character be naive and positive, even to a fault. It says a lot about Calla, especially since her past was not all s ...more

I found this first book of the second trilogy more engaging than the first book of Violet's story, which is saying something. The mystery is interesting, Calla has her secrets, the mysterious vigilante tattoo artist, that we later learn to be called Chase, has his secrets and it all leads up to a very interesting plot and a very, very very shocking revelation at the end that kept me up half an hour after reading the final chapters in bed. I wish I knew how to write a sentence that makes sense ...more

Overall, I was blown away by this book. It was a great start to the new story line but also a really great continuation of the series!

All formatting is lost.

The fourth novel to the Creepy Hollow series pretty much made me realize that there were actually some loose ends left untied in the third book – I'm not sure if I mentioned it felt like an almost abrupt ending (I probably did).

Anyways, A Faerie's Secret is set approximately ten years after the events in The Faerie War. Rachel introduces us to a new main character – Calla Lark

Okay, I'll admit it, I was a little wary to start reading this one. Only because I loved the first three books in this series so much ( so so much ) and was worried about the 10 year time jump and switch of main character. But there was no way I could not read it ( you know what I mean? ). So anyways it didn't take long at all and I was once again absorbed in the world of Creepy Hollow. I felt foolish for ever doubting that Rachel Morgan could pull me in and make me love this book just as much a ...more

As I already said, I loved the first three books! I f I didn’t mention it before, this would be such a great saga to adapt into film. The action is amazing, the world that is created in these books exceeds your wildest imagination. Fans of the Hunger Games, the Divergent books, or even the Harry Potter books will love these ones!

This book has a slightly different feel to the first three. Calla is not Violet. She is not as forceful and brutal as Violet, but more composed, and it takes a little ge

This book is as awesome as I thought! Even better !! When I heard there was going to be a creepy hollow #4 about Calla, I wasn't that excited, just like other books I think it's weird to start a new book with your fave characters in the background and someone else being the main character. But this was actually really good <3 There wasn't a part in this book I disliked reading like in The Faerie War, but we all know why (it's your fault Vi) Rachel you did an awesome job and now I'm going to l ...more

In a Faerie's Secret, Author Rachel Morgan included a shock factor of epic proportions, bound to leave Creepy Hollow enthusiasts stunned until her next release. 
The plot twist is BRILLIANT! It is the plot twist of all plot twists and this is why Rachel Morgan is THE author to follow. It guarantees a reader will read A Faerie's Secret several times over with ferocity.

I'll have to admit that it took awhile for me to get used the story shifting to Calla, as I wanted more Vi & Ryn. Calla won me over though. This entry was well written & engaging. I would highly recommend this YA series!
