Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is just weeks away from one of the most important occasions of her life: graduation. After messing up big time by bringing a human into the fae realm, Vi needs to step up her game and forget about Nate if she hopes to graduate as the top guardian of her year. Everything would be fine if she wasn’t forced to partner with Ryn, her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current ‘sort of friend’. They might be trying to patch up their relationship, but does she really want to spend a week undercover with him for their final assignment? On top of that, the possibly insane Unseelie Prince is still on the loose, free to ‘collect’ as many specially talented faeries as he can find—and Vi is still at the top of his list. Add in faerie queens, enchanted storms, complicated not-just-friends feelings, and a murder within the Guild itself, and graduation is about to become the least of Vi’s problems.
What Made Me Swoon:
"His lips graze mine, which startles me so much I almost pull away. But I don't. I grip his fingers tighter and press my body closer because-yes oh yes oh yes-I want this so badly. Our lips touch again, with more pressure this time. He pulls his fingers free from mine and slides his hand all the way up my arm. I imagine I can feel sparks jumping across my skin. Through my closed eyelids, I see flashes of light and the realization hits me: The sparks he's trailing up my skin are real. His fingers dig into my wet hair and pull my face closer to his. He twists me around, pressing me against the wall. I feel his body along every inch of mine; no space exists between us. His lips brush along my jaw, teasing me with kisses that feel cool against my burning hot skin. He trails a finger-more sparks-down my neck and over the swell of my chest, ending when he reaches the edge of my top. I think a gasp escapes my throat, but I'm not sure since all I can hear is the pounding of blood in my ears. (eARC, 195)
"You think I'm going to hurt you? You think I''m going to get bored and run off with some
Undergrounder the first chance I get? You obviously have no idea how amazing you are.
You, Violet Fairdale, are incredible, and I want you. Every part of you. I want your
stubbornness and your sarcasm and your competitive spirit. I want you challenging me
and fighting beside me. I want to hold you and kiss you and so much more because
there's no one else in the world who knows me like you do. You have always been the one
for me, even when we couldn't stand each other. You're beautiful and hot and sexy all at
once, and you're more intelligent than any girl I've met. I love the fact that I've known
you all my life. It just feels right when you're beside me. It feels like I've been lost in the
desert for years, and ...I've finally come home." (eARC, 236)
