Review of Scarlett (A Creepy Hollow Story) by Rachel Morgan
This was a welcome surprise release from Rachel Morgan and a companion story to the Creepy Hollow series.
Horrified for nearly killing her boyfriend when her dormant magic awakens, Beth flees to the fae realm to find sanctuary with her siren mother. But unfortunately she’s cast out again from the community when they realised her deadly powers cannot be controlled. Beth is then rescued by a group of witches who offered to help her, but will they be able to and at what cost …?
It was actually nice to get the backstory on one of the secondary characters in the series. Even though the story was short, it didn’t lack any of the trademark brilliance of Rachel Morgan. The story line had an easy flow, with events and twists following non-stop. Beth had me rooted for her and I had empathy for this strong, magical creature that faced and overcome the one challenge after the other. The book is spoiler free even though there were brief appearance from three characters.
I’m now even more eager to read A Faerie’s Curse (Creepy Hollow Book 6) where Scarlett will apparently play a bigger role.
