Calla Larkenwood wants nothing more than to be a guardian, but her overprotective mother has never allowed it. Battling fae creatures is too dangerous a job for a young girl, and there’s that pesky magical ability she needs to keep hidden from the Guild. How can she do that if she’s working right under their nose?
When circumstances change and Calla finally gets to follow her dream, she discovers guardian trainee life isn’t all she hoped it would be. Her classmates are distant, her mentor hates her, and keeping her ability a secret is harder than she thought. Then an Underground initiation game goes wrong, landing Calla with a new magical ability she can’t control. She needs help—and the only way to get it is by bargaining with the guy who just discovered her biggest secret.

Oh wow!!! Speechless!
I was skeptical that this book could be as good as the rest but it has wow 'd me! I'm itching to download the next book!!! This exceeded my expectations with a build to a fantastic cliff hanger!!! Do yourself a favor and get the whole series so you don't have to wait!
An Excellent New Chapter
Okay, let's get right to it: this book blew my mind. I am so in love with this series! Rachel is really an incredible writer. She writes such relatable characters that I instantly click with, and they're so well rounded and unique! And she has once again created a couple that I just cannot help but ship with Calla and Chase! And the ending, just, ugh. It absolutely caught me by surprise, and I'm usually pretty good about seeing things coming. Plot. Twist. I need the next book right away, or I may explode. I have a love/hate relationship with that ending... but mostly a love relationship. It's been a while since I've read a good plot twist, and ahhh, so refreshing.
This book gets all five of those stars! An excellent new chapter in the Creepy Hollow story!
