Calla Larkenwood wants nothing more than to be a guardian, but her overprotective mother has never allowed it. Battling fae creatures is too dangerous a job for a young girl, and there’s that pesky magical ability she needs to keep hidden from the Guild. How can she do that if she’s working right under their nose?
When circumstances change and Calla finally gets to follow her dream, she discovers guardian trainee life isn’t all she hoped it would be. Her classmates are distant, her mentor hates her, and keeping her ability a secret is harder than she thought. Then an Underground initiation game goes wrong, landing Calla with a new magical ability she can’t control. She needs help—and the only way to get it is by bargaining with the guy who just discovered her biggest secret.

Warning: Highly Addictive Series
I so enjoyed the first three books in the Creepy Hollow series. I was hoping I wouldn't be disappointed with our new lead character for the next journey, Calla. Calla is Violet's sister-in-law so we still get to see Violet and Ryn which is really great. It is now been years since the destruction caused by Draven. Calla is 17 years old and fixated on being a Guardian like her big brother and her father before he retired. Her mother is resistant to the idea and she has been secretly training with a friend. When violence hits close to home, her mother finally agrees to let her become a Guardian.
It is not easy to jump in when the others trainees have been working together for years. She and her mentor do not see eye to eye and one classmate is really out to get her in trouble. She has had to hide her real abilities and that has made friendships very difficult over the years. She has transferred from school to school and there are lots of rumors about her.
In this first book of her story, there is plenty of action and surprises. Calla learns some shocking secrets that she never expected. She and her family face great danger. While all these heavy things are going on, she also makes friends and begins to really fall for someone she meets who has plenty of secrets of his own. The ending is going to make you very eager for book 5 to see what happens next.
I would definitely recommend reading the first three books first. They will add to your enjoyment and understanding. That is not to say you couldn't start with this book and have an enjoyable experience. The first three books are a wonderful adventure you don't want to miss.
I received a copy in return for a honest review.
