Pinpoints of light prickle the indigo sky, brightening from a pale blue to an illustrious bright white. 

"Look, there, amongst the flickers a flash of violet!"

What could it be?, you ask. Where on earth did it land? 

Glistening wings flutter as they approach a sleeping boy. He awakens and then ....

it happens ....

... the unthinkable.


Now, for your eyes only THE FAIRIE GUARDIAN is revealed ....

Greetings all,

Today it gives me great pleasure to feature my good friend and amazing writer, Rachel Morgan. Today the cover of her newest book is revealed! Isn't it stunning? WOW.... I can see the magical sparks leaping off the page.

Here's the blurb from Rachel and the amazing details of her giveaway ...

Title: The Faerie Guardian
Author: Rachel Morgan
Release Date: 5 Nov 2012

Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day’s work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone—she’s about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until a cute human boy who can somehow see through her faerie glamour follows her into the fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot—and it’ll take all her training to get out of it alive.

[This novel was originally published in four separate parts: 
Guardian, Labyrinth, Traitor and Masquerade. It includes bonus scenes at the end.]
