[New Release] The Faerie Prince by Rachel Morgan



To celebrate Rachel Morgan's newest release, The Faerie Prince, she's asked us to name our favorite fairy tale prince (or princess). Guess who mine is?



Come on! He's brave, athletic, and streetwise. What's not to love? Plus, he has a pretty great singing voice...


Now that half of you are swooning, let's get back to the main event. ;)

About The Faerie Prince

Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is just weeks away from one of the most important occasions of her life: graduation. After messing up big time by bringing a human into the fae realm, Vi needs to step up her game and forget about Nate if she hopes to graduate as the top guardian of her year. Everything would be fine if she wasn’t forced to partner with Ryn, her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current ‘sort of friend’. They might be trying to patch up their relationship, but does she really want to spend a week undercover with him for their final assignment? On top of that, the possibly insane Unseelie Prince is still on the loose, free to ‘collect’ as many specially talented faeries as he can find—and Vi is still at the top of his list. Add in faerie queens, enchanted storms, complicated not-just-friends feelings, and a murder within the Guild itself, and graduation is about to become the least of Vi’s problems.

About Rachel

Rachel Morgan was born in South Africa and spent a large portion of her childhood living in a fantasy land of her own making. After completing a degree in genetics, she decided science wasn’t for her—after all, they didn’t approve of made-up facts. These days she spends much of her time immersed in fantasy land once more, writing fiction for young adults.


In celebration, The Faerie Guardian is on sale for a limited time!

Congrats to Rachel! I still need to read the first volume and must get on to that quick. :)

Mama J said...

I like Aladdin too. Plus, he has a great bunch of friends.

Juliana Haygert said...

I *almost* decided on Aladdin. But then I was between Eric and Adam ... Aw, now I want to watch the movie again (for the 1000th time). Let's see if I can convince the daughter to watch it with me lol

Rachel Morgan said...

Awww, Aladdin! Swoon ;-) Of all the princes and heroes out there, he's near the top of my list.

Julie Luek said...

Sounds like a fantastic story! Aladdin was a great prince. Plus, he had a good sense of humor and humility. What's not to love?

prerna pickett said...

I love Aladdin! Definitely a great choice.

everonword said...

ALADDIN! I came *this close* to picking Aladdin. He is my Disney hero -- love, love, love!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Great choice with Aladdin. Love the premise of this book--it's a sequel?

"her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current ‘sort of friend’." lol

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I think that Prince Harry is cute as a button. Do reality princes count?

E.J. Wesley said...

*warbles* A whole newwwww worlllddddd, a new fantastic point of view... :D

Melissa said...

I thought about singing back-up for EJ, but... Trust me. Y'all don't want to hear me sing. :P

Congratulations, Rachel. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Go, Nick, go! ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Absolutely! Thanks for stopping by, Mama J. :)

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Aladdin is a great choice Carrie!

Adriana Dascalu said...

Who didn't love Alladin? he's so funny!

Carrie Butler said...

I don't blame you. Eric is quite the catch. ;)

Hey, if she doesn't, I will! LOL

Carrie Butler said...

And with good reason. ;) Congratulations, Rachel!

Carrie Butler said...

Exactly! He was the best of both worlds. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Yes! :D Thanks for stopping by, Prerna!

Carrie Butler said...

There were so many great princes to choose from! I had a couple of close ones, too. :) Thanks for stopping by, Danielle!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Donna! :) I believe so. If not, I blame my lack of interaction with the blogosphere this month.

Carrie Butler said...

Of course! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Yes, we do. KARAOKE TIME!

Carrie Butler said...

I'm going to pretend I didn't just sing that out loud...

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Sheena-kay! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Exactly! :D Thanks for stopping by, Adriana!

Emilyann Girdner said...

Oh man, he was a close second for me. Really great pick. I went with Char from Ella Enchanted.

P.S. So true about the singing voice, lol.

Carrie Butler said...

Oo, that's a good one! :) And thanks for following, Emilyann!

Eric Muss-Barnes said...

As a lover of faerie tales, I'm always happy when I see someone spell faerie the "right" way.

My favorite princess has to be Princess Leia. She's strong and confident, yet still vulnerable and womanly. She doesn't need a man to rescue her, but she still needs one to love her... Plus, she makes out with her brother, which means you know she can get her kinky freak on!

Most faerietale princesses are not admirable women. They tend to be rather weak and frail and typically get into trouble because they make some sort of really stupid decision somewhere in the story. Faerietale princesses are frequently idiots sometime near the end of act two.

Carrie Butler said...

Kinky Leia...

Oh, Eric. Where would we be without your twisted insight? *grins*

Eric Muss-Barnes said...

Hey, I'm just shining a light on what everyone thinks but no one says. What does Leia say when Luke reveals he's her brother? "I know. Somehow... I've always known." Oh, realllllly? She always knew, yet she was planting kisses on him left and right? The chick is a kinky freak, man! You know she kept that metal bikini and Han made her wear it all the time.

Krista McLaughlin said...

Great choice! :) I love Aladdin! When my older sister and I were little, we used to spread towels on the floor in the living room as our flying carpets and sing that song! :) I read her book a few weeks ago and I love it! I'm sharing my favorite prince tomorrow. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Krista! :) And I love that story. How stinkin' creative were you two? :D
