Description

Book One. Rae Wilder has problems. Supernatural creatures swarm the earth, and humanity is on the brink of extinction. Stalked by a handsome fairy who claims she is like him, demonkind, Rae thinks maybe it was a mistake breaking the rules by going over the Wall into demon territory. Plunged into a world of dark magics, fierce creatures, and ritual sacrifice, she is charged with a guarding a magical amulet. The changes to her mind and body are startling, but rather than accept her purpose she struggles against who she is destined to be. Throw in a big lust for a vampire who can't keep his hands off her, and life starts to get complicated. Rae is forced to make the ultimate choice: to live and die human, or embrace her birth-right and wield magics that could turn her into something wicked, a force of nature nothing can control.

    Excellent idea for the book. Good characters just under developed. Lots of errors, not a fan of having to reread a page to understand it. There was good action but the story was unable to pull me in. To much back and forth emotions but never a real reason why.

    Very good writer. Story had a very good premise. Though, the pace was too fast and the story was more like a soap opera.

    This book is transparent and lacks complexity in structure and characters. It's one reactive emotional decision making experience after another. The characters show no growth and the prose is downright silly. I feel like I'm reading a compilation of text messages in 1600+ iPhone pages. To the author: "take a class in literature and psychology 101"

    This book was riveting and glorious. I really enjoyed reading it. However, it has a few grammar mistakes. Some sentences did not make sense, but I feel the book was very well written.

    Honestly, it looked like a pretty good story. And Ms Fletcher shows a good bit of talent. This book might even qualify for awesome if it weren’t for two very unavoidable facts: First, and most important — I must say the book is not terribly well edited. Even one good ol’ fashioned read through before publishing and some very blatant mistakes would show up — for example, in a late chapter Rae is being carried, according to the text, by someone who is not present in the scene as stated a couple of very short paragraphs later. Also some of the sentences and paragraphs were phrased in an awkward way that might have got tweaked if Ms Fletcher had found a good friend to read the book over carefully who also was a stickler for English. The second is that it feels like it’s trying to be a twist on Twilight. If Ms Meyer’s book is your bag of chips you might not see this as a problem, so let me explain. Inspired by Twilight? Well, that’s a tradition of fiction, to emulate your favourites — if Ms Fletcher is a Meyers fan, that’s all well and good. The book might do well to look a bit like she’s a fan of the work, which would make sense. But it’s the feel. There’s a love triangle that forms and just seems an arbitrary attempt to parallel the whole Vampire/Warewolf/Bella thing (sorry, I’m not a fan of Meyers’ work and can’t recall the names and am too lazy to care enough to look them up). All told I would say — hey, the first book is 100% free on all book stores. Give it a look, you might like it, if you don’t you’re not out anything. The sequels are not free, and I’m debating with myself if I shall be purchasing any of them. I’ve got a sample of book 2 in my to-read list, so we’ll see.

    I got this book in the free section, so I was not sure what I was getting into. But this book delivers. I am in love with the plot and the way everything is shown to you. Lots of spelling and grammar errors but if it does not bother you to read books with those problems this is a wonderful book, I had to that've the 2 one as soon as I was done .... Really a great book!
