Review: Hallowed Falls

Hallowed Falls

Paranormal Romance

by Jessica Yeun

Hazel Plumeria, a descendant of one of the most prominent fairy families in history, has never known life outside of Luna Valley. Her sister, Leah was born a fairy but a couple of years ago she decided to give up her wings and take the Enchantress elixir. Hazel has always known that life in Luna Valley was never enough for Leah. Even Hazel has begun to feel that way lately, but she never thought anything of it. Until one day, Leah asked Hazel to move to Hallowed Falls with her. Their mother, Fleur had always told them stories about the historic town of Hallowed Falls where the old Plumeria estate still stands. It was a magical place where all supernatural beings had originated from and once thrived.

As soon as they arrived at Hallowed Falls, they meet the new head housekeeper, Lucinda Griffin. They soon learn that Lucinda is actually their cousin and was an agent of the Aster Elites, an elite agency dedicated to protecting all supernatural beings. One day when the body of a local fairy was discovered outside a cave near the town’s cemetery, suspicions arise that a century old vampire, Marco Alexander has returned and has a thirst for fairy blood. The sisters quickly learn that life in Hallowed Falls, which once was a safe haven for all magical beings, holds more than just an old family estate in a small town.



4 out of 5

Hallowed Falls isn’t your typical fairy story. Witches, vampires, and fairies oh my! It was wonderful seeing vampires and fairies together, it’s a rarity that they cross paths in most books. I liked the story, and I could totally disappear into their world for hours just to explore. I would’ve like a few more twists, but overall, it was nice to get lost in the pages of the book and watch the tale unfold. Not a thriller, but an interesting mystery nonetheless. Warning: there is a cliffhanger.
