Violet Fairdale is in big trouble. Her home is gone, her beloved forest lies in ruins, the guy she gave her heart to has deserted her—and she doesn’t remember any of it. The powerful Lord Draven is taking over, brainwashing guardians into fighting for him. No one is safe from the evil spreading throughout the fae world.
As alliances are forged between the remaining free fae, Vi struggles to reclaim her identity and figure out where she belongs in this new world. When someone from her past shows up, life gets even more complicated. He brings with him a long-forgotten weapon and an ancient prophecy that places Vi at the center of the fight against Draven. With the future of the fae world at stake, can Vi carry out the prophecy’s instructions before it’s too late?
It is such an amazing feeling when you find a series that you cannot put down for a second. Where you finish one book, and instantly buy the next and start it because you just have to know what happens next. Where you actually may force yourself to stop so that the book will last just a little longer. The Creepy Hollow series was that for me. I was hooked in book one, and by The Faerie War, I was in love with everything this series has to offer. And yes, I am definitely in book depression now that it is over.
Violet is one of those characters, that regardless of what she’s been put through or what she does to herself, you cannot help but adore her. She’s fierce and strong and definitely her own person. Then on the other side, Ryn, you are forever my love. In the first book, I knew I hearted you. In The Faerie Prince, I grew to just love and adore you and finally in this last installment you have easily become a favorite book boyfriend of mine. I just adored watching these two fight the world together (whether they were fighting or not).
I have to throw a shout out to Arthur…YES the shrinking dragon! I want one. With The Faerie War, I love how everything built up to multiple moments that you knew were hopefully coming and just couldn’t wait to read about. I also loved all the new characters and work building we see in this last book. Overall, I absolutely adored this series. If you’re looking for a fun but dark, fast-paced, awesome fae read, definitely give this series a shot!
