All that Glows by Ryan Graudin

Emrys—a fiery, red-headed Fae—always embraced her life in the Highlands, far from the city’s draining technology, until she’s sent to London to rejoin the Faery Guard. But this isn’t any normal assignment—she’s sent to guard Prince Richard: Britain’s notorious, partying bad boy and soon-to-be King. The prince’s careless ways and royal blood make him the irresistible for the dark spirits that feed on mortals. Sweet, disheveled, and alive with adventure—Richard is one charge who will put Emrys’s magic and heart to the test.
When an ancient force begins preying on the monarchy, Emrys must hunt through the London’s magical underworld, facing down Banshees, Black Dogs and Green Women to find the one who threatens Richard’s life. In this chaos of dark magic, palace murders and paparazzi, Emrys finds herself facing an impossible choice. For despite all her powers, Emrys has discovered a force that burns brighter than magic: love.

I especially enjoyed reading All that Glows. It is a great combination of fantasy and "real life" scenarios. The characters are fun and I enjoyed getting to know them. The story is a love story and and an exciting adventure for the reader; it offers a couple of big plot twists. The book is long but it is a page-turner and I read it in a couple sittings. I liked the morals offered in the story. I highly recommend this book for girls age 13 and up. Thank you to HarperTeen for this enjoyable book!
