Pleasantly surprised. Discovered that faerie reads can be nice. Generally I dont go for theme because they are too high fantasy for me, but this was a perfect balance. Vi, did some fast growing up. I felt bad for her and I got quiet at my desk when Ryn broke down and told how he felt . The battles and action seemed very crime show cop/detective inspired but i like that. Rachel did the best job descripting the Faerien world m which is normally my sticking point on these type of novels. She handled that task with flying colors. Great read and i will be picking up number 2 tomorrow .

Would you listen to Creepy Hollow Series # 1 again? Why?
Yes! Although this book was slow to get going, in my opinion, the characters grew on me and I immediately liked Violet, the main character.
What other book might you compare Creepy Hollow Series # 1 to and why?
I was constantly reminded of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments. The Guardians reminded me very much of the Shadow Hunters in Clare's novels. Morgan's Guardians train to protect humans from the more malicious beings from Faerie and they also use a variety of weapons and gadgets similar to those in the Mortal Instruments books.
Have you listened to any of Jorjeana Marie and Zach Villa ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not. I thought they did a great job narrating!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not in the very beginning, but the further I got into the book, the more I wanted to just sit and finish listening.
Any additional comments?
Great narration and an intriguing story that is just beginning. Looking forward to all that will unfold in the next books!

Um. Okay. This is going to be really hard to review... I should not have liked this, at least in theory. Violet does not really have an overall goal so although the differerent parts of the plot are linked they feel more like individual adventures, and the climax isn't really all that climactic, considering nothing is really defeated, just escaped.
HOWEVER, this was really fun. I didn't want to stop listening. I enjoyed what happened and felt for Vi. The best way I can think to put my feelings for it is that it was like reading a good fanfiction, the characters and scenes are a lot of fun but it feels like the writer is letting it go where it wants to. So, despite some flaws, I enjoyed this. Enjoyed it enough that I'll be picking up the sequel.
