Review:Guardian of the Green Hill by Laura L. Sullivan

 I have not read the first book of the series and I felt a little lost at first.  Though I enjoyed the story and it does stand alone.
Phyllida Ash is the current guardian of the green hill she protects the fairies from humans and humans from ferries. Shes is in her 80's and Lysander Ash her husband have no children so no heir.
Her nieces and nephews and friends come from America not sure why. Rowan is the oldest male and Meg is oldest female(Only females inherit the guardian of Green Hill) Silly and James who 4 are the Morgans. Their friends are Finn Fachan and Dickie Rhys.
Their is a plot from distant relative to take controll of the guardian and the rookier through magic trickery. He paints things he wants to happen and wills it. He also has a talking goat that has to do what he is commanded to.
James is taken down into the ferry kingdom and it is a test for Meg to rescue but no one can tell her.
Her Aunts test was to rescue her father and did not succeed untill this year. So while she is 80 her father is young man.
Their are humans in the village that are taking advantage of a few of the fae, but the children step into help and Meg has to decide what to do.
Their is pressure for Meg to accept the guardianship but it has to be what she decides. If she doesn't the ferries will eventually be killed off and the humans will be worse too.
Their is a lot going on in the book and it keeps your interested in the story. I know by the story that their will probably be another book at least. I would like to read more. I even would like to go and read the first sometime.
I was given this ebook in exchange of honest review.
