Review of Labyrinth (Creepy Hollow #2) by Rachel Morgan

Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale has officially been suspended for bringing a human into the fae realm. No assignments, no training, and goodbye to that position at the top of the class. While this sucks, it at least allows her time to secretly keep visiting Nate, the human boy who caused her suspension in the first place. It’s not the wisest move to continue breaking Guild Law, but no one’s going to find out. And Nate is worth the risk, isn’t he?

To prevent herself from going into assignment withdrawal, Vi throws herself into investigating Nate’s real mother, Angelica, a woman who seems to be mysteriously connected to the world of the fae. Nate’s never given her much thought, but that was before an insane faerie abducted him in order to blackmail Angelica out of hiding. Now Nate wants answers, and Vi’s got the perfect ability to help him.

Taking place after the events that occurred in Guardian, Labyrinth definitely gave me more than what I expected from the series of novellas. Labyrinth follows Violet after her week long suspension from Guardian training and our feisty main character continues to break all the rules when she still visits Nate. The human boy whom she let enter the faerie realm. I will admit, that I wasn’t sure what to find within the pages of the story. After the way that Guardian delivered I was unsure how author Rachel Morgan would manage to top the novella.

Well let me tell you that in Labyrinth we no longer focus so much on Violet being a Guardian. I mean, there’s still the whole “I’m a Guardian and if anybody finds out that I didn’t erase your memory and that we’re still dating, I’m screwed” situation,  but the novel focuses more on the mystery of the why and how Nate can somehow pass through the faerie paths and see fey.  Luckily for us, that means we watch as Violet uses her unique gifts to assist Nate in finding his mother. I don’t mean his step-mother, I mean his birthmother, the one woman who is a complete mystery to everybody and just might be a threat greater than anybody anticipated.

Personally, I’m glad that there was more romance and mean more romance. In Guardian (and I feel that I’ve been doing a lot of comparisons, but it helps me establish how awesome-sauce Labyrinth is) we only read about some flirting and eventually a first kiss—but now we get the full on relationship romances. And since Violet is so unused to these actions and emotions, we got so many embarrassed thoughts from her that had me giggling out loud.

I don’t want to give too much away, but the one thing about Labyrinth that I fell in love with was the Labyrinth itself. I would recommend the series to fans of Melissa Marr, romance as well as fantasy. And if you have read Guardian, the novella’s sequel will not disappoint.

    Thank you for the review!


  2. I loved the romance in this one too! Violet and Nate are both so cute and funny. I also loved the labyrinth. It sounded really unique and scary. Underground maze? I’m so claustrophobic lol
