Book Review: The Faerie's Revenge by Rachel Morgan

"I blink at him.  A second later, a manticore drops out of the air and lands on the table. Shrieks and gasps fill the air as the manticore scrambles to its clawed lions feet and opens its mouth to emit an inhuman roar. Darius jerks out of the way and falls from his chair as as the manticor's scorpion stinger flashes forward to strike at him. He throws his hands up to release magic---
And the illusion is gone."
The Faerie's Revenge, Rachel Morgan

I have been wanting to read this series for a very long time. When the chance to receive the first four books and an ARC of the fifth book came up I went for it. Thanks so much  to Rachel Morgan for letting me be a part of the review tour:)

Goodreads Synopsis:

Still reeling from a shocking revelation, guardian trainee Calla Larkenwood finds the threads of her world unraveling further when she’s accused of a horrifying crime she didn’t commit: A deadly magical disease has entered the Guild, threatening to wipe out every guardian—and someone is intent on framing Calla for it. With the Guild Council focusing their investigation on her instead of searching for the real criminal, Calla watches her dream of becoming a guardian rapidly slipping away. Time is running out, and as the lines between good and bad, right and wrong, begin to blur, whom can she turn to for help?

After the shocking ending to book four I immediately grabbed my copy of the fifth book and devoured it. It was everything I hoped it would be and now I'm sadly waiting for the sixth book.

With fight scenes, suspense, romance, a betrayal, and a dangerous disease spreading through the guild this book is fast paced and will keep you on your toes till the very end.  Every page is full of a new twist. And that ending? Yeah can we have the next book now, please?

So in the fourth book Chase turned out to be Nate, the ex-Lord Draven. Was it just me or did nobody else see this coming?  I was so surprised. I loved seeing how his character had developed. He went from goofy, lovable Nate, to the power consumed Lord Draven, to the mature, guilt filled Chase. He is such a deep character and seeing exactly what happened to him after book three was interesting. And sad. Really, really sad.  Seriously chapter sixteen *tears*.

Even though Callas dream is falling apart shes still determined to catch the bad guys and stop them from harming anyone. I love Callas character. Shes so determined to see the world as a good place, and she fights to make it one. Her love for her family and the way she cares about her friends only makes her more kick butt. Seriously I need a t-shirt that says "Team Calla".

I love how Calla even after finding out his big secret, thinks that there is something missing to Chase's story. If he was so evil and still plotting to take over the world what has he been doing for the last ten years? Their relationship is so adorable *shipping them so hard*

This is definitely my favorite book in the series. If you have read the other books then you definitely need to drop everything and pick up this one.
