The Faerie Guardian, Part II: Labyrinth 
LABYRINTH
Part II of The Faerie Guardian
By



BLURB:
 
Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale has officially been suspended for bringing a human into the fae realm. No assignments, no training, and goodbye to that position at the top of the class. While this sucks, it at least allows her time to secretly keep visiting Nate, the human boy who caused her suspension in the first place. It’s not the wisest move to continue breaking Guild Law, but no one’s going to find out. And Nate is worth the risk, isn’t he?

To prevent herself from going into assignment withdrawal, Vi throws herself into investigating Nate’s real mother, Angelica, a woman who seems to be mysteriously connected to the world of the fae. Nate’s never given her much thought, but that was before an insane faerie abducted him in order to blackmail Angelica out of hiding. Now Nate wants answers, and Vi’s got the perfect ability to help him.

MY REVIEW:

Labyrinth, the second book in The Faerie Guardian series by Rachel Morgan continues the story of a young fae guardian named Violet, Vi for short, and her adventures when she defies the Guild laws to help Nate, a human boy, to find out the truth about his mother.

This magical tale leads the two into unknown territory and trouble, as they follow a lead to find Nate's mother, who is not what she seems.

Rachel has continued the magic of her first book in the series with this young adult fantasy as readers follow Vi and Nate on their adventures and are teased by their growing relationship as they discover the secrets of Nate's family.

BLURB:
The prince first kissed Kate Carpenter for fear of missing the chance if they didn’t survive the journey home through the monster-prowled mountains.

Now that kiss seems like a fever dream. It’s back to work for her, back to the fellow physicians jealous of her talents and the sneers of an infirmary director who wants her shipped off to some tiny village. Kate means to be on the front lines to save lives. She’s worked too hard to overcome her past to let them deny her the chance to serve her homeland when the enemy’s army reaches their kingdom.

The grand jousting tournament is a chance to prove she can manage combat wounded, and at the royal Solstice banquet Kate means to prove she isn’t an ignorant peasant girl anymore.

But the prince’s kiss still haunts her. Their paths keep crossing, and the easy familiarity they earned on the journey home is a welcome escape from their duties. It’s a small slip from chatting to kisses.

This is no time to be distracted by romance -- a vast and powerful empire is coming to slaughter anyone standing between them and the kingdom’s magical fount.

Kate ought to break both their hearts, for duty’s sake. 


HERE L. BLANKENSHIP TELLS US A LITTLE ABOUT THE LAMIA FROM THE SERIES:
Welcome L. the Lamia sound bloodthirsty and creepy!  Carolyn

Lamia

Lamia are not the best-known of mythological monsters. The original Greek stories describe her as a beautiful queen who turned into a child-eating monster. A later poem by Keats gave her a snake's body below the waist -- rather like a naga.

Even later, lamia became part of the Dungeons & Dragons universe as a part-woman, part-lion monster -- or a naga-like half-serpent also.

But the child-eating detail has stuck to the lamia throughout her changes in appearance, and that was the basis for the lamia that appear in Disciple.

They haunt the eastern mountains of Wodenberg, singing in the night with high, feminine voices. Sometimes villagers will catch a glimpse of them: bristle-backed wolves with leathery hides and long, naked tails like rats.

The lamia drive out wolves, cougars, and bears. They don't tolerate any competition for prey in their territory. Nobody's sure if humans are considered prey or competition -- either way, children are a favorite target of theirs. No lone person has much chance of fighting off a hunting pack; they aren't afraid of fire, and they know what bows, slings and swords can do.

Perhaps the victim's bones will be found and perhaps they won't.

Baron Eismann organizes hunts when the lamia come down from the mountains to hunt villagers. Well-equipped teams of archers, woodsmen, and knights head upslope and kill as many lamia as they can before losing too many of their own. They return with stories of harrowing nights and the eerie cunning of the monsters, and they bring back the fangs of the lamia they killed to wear as badges of honor.


In Disciple, Part I, Kate is the healer trying to keep her traveling companions alive while the lamia harry them night and day. By Part II, the friendship she and the prince earned in surviving that journey is turning into a romance that could derail Kate's budding career.
