Publisher's Summary

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 noses?
When circumstances change and Calla finally gets to follow her dream, she discovers that 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.

My mouth is still hanging open after that ending

For the most part, I wasn't as enamored with this book as I was with the previous three. I knew that it would no longer be violets story, and I was disappointed. If I weren't thinking of this book's predecessors, I think I would've enjoyed it a lot more. Calla is a good heroin, strong-willed and semi relatable (as relatable as a faerie with Griffin powers can be :-)
All of the new characters or three-dimensional, and I enjoyed the return of our old favorites. But as for the story itself, it didn't suck me in as the others did. I can't pinpoint what it was… The pacing was fine, and the events are interesting. But...
But the ending... Just one word has me excited to get started on the next one. Maybe it will pick up. But even if it doesn't, I have to see how this plays out.

Fantastic narration for a fun story

Arielle did a great job with the narration, and Rachel delivered once again. I'm having a hard time writing a review without including spoilers, so I'll just say I loved seeing all of my favorite characters from Calla's point of view as she gets her start in semi-adulthood. I absolutely recommend this one.
