Masquerade (Creepy Hollow #4) - A Review

The lovely, Rachel Morgan has released the next book in her Creepy Hollow Series and I just had to read it! :)  She was even wonderful enough to award me with a copy of her book!  Her voice is unique and her books will not let you put them down.  Also, she designs her own covers and they are beautiful!


Title: Masquerade (Creepy Hollow #4) 
Author: Rachel Morgan
Publisher: Kindle
Publication Date: July 31, 2012

Genre: Fantasy
Plot: First, here is the summary of "Masquerade (Creepy Hollow #4)" from Amazon -Betrayed by the guy who supposedly loved her, Violet deals with her anger and hurt by teaming up with her archrival Ryn to help him find his missing sister. Hanging out with Ryn isn’t high on Vi’s list of things to do, but she kind of owes him after he inconveniently saved her life recently. As the two of them struggle to put their differences aside, they find themselves drawn into a plot much greater than a single missing child. A plot with Violet herself at the center.

After a deep betrayal in "Traitor", Violet is left reeling and forced to deal with the pain that someone she cared for could do this to her.  She is beyond angry and furious.  The reader gets to see a deeper side of Vi as she struggles with the deepest heartache.  You can actually feel her pain as she tries not to think of what happened.  She doesn't have much time to dwell before she is thrown into a rescue that doesn't go exactly as planned.  But, when have Vi's plans actually worked out? :)  She's stuck working with her greatest annoyance, Ryn.  The reader gets to glimpse a little more about Vi's childhood and the reason for the hatred and distrust between Vi and Ryn. 

Romantic Element: The relationship between Vi and Nate is in shambles, but there's a new element to Vi.  We get to learn more about her past friendship with Ryn and what caused it to fail.  There's mystery between them and the circumstances that kept me flipping the pages!  I definitely want to see what happens next between those two.

Overall:  The fourth book delves deeper into the traitors and lies of the faerie world, twisting a path that Vi must travel to get the whole truth.  She's in deep and the mysterious developments keep coming!  Morgan has written another brilliant installment in the Creepy Hollow Series that will satisfy her readers and leave them wanting more at the same time!   Also, the comic relief Morgan writes always has me laughing! :)

 Seriously, you need to read her series. You won't regret it. :)
