So that could have really been done a bit better. Rae I felt like this was Rae: It is like it doesn't bother her that guys are falling for her left, right and center. I mean come on, this all takes place in a span of like 24 hours. And by her description, she is not looking so great for most of it.
And then she ends up kissing two of the guys and I am just like Now to be honest, I don't care how many guys she kisses in one day. The more the merrier, right? And now everyone is obsessed with her and she never sits them down and demands answers. She pretty much runs from the whys and hows. That would literally be the first thing I would do. Then we have Breandan Ew, this guy sucks. At first I thought I might like him, but the more the story progressed, the more I wanted to hit him. There is no realistic way a relationship with such an obsessive, possessive and controlling dickwad would be a good relationship.
Why do girls like that sort of shit? Tomas You spelled Thomas wrong. I actually liked this guy at first. Kinda ugly, not a hot vampire but a walking corpse Sounds like him and I would be great friends. And he was actually quite noble. The only thing letting me down is that he liked Rae. Devlin I am rooting for this guy. Sure, he is portrayed as the bad guy, but I don't think he is too bad. He is a douche, and thinks Fairies are supreme to everyone, and he view spoiler [hurt my Ana and killed Alex, but in the end he is their leader and he looks after all the fairies, even the ones like Maeve who are part of the rebels.
He is a well balanced character. Ana Aww she was a sweetheart. I liked her from the moment she appeared on the pages. Other than that, I don't have much to say other than she rocks. Alex I would rather she be the main character over Rae. Started off strong, but there was too much focus on the goddamn love triangle. Why they are so important eludes me. Sure, I don't care if there is one in a book, like in the Hunger Games, but it should never be a plot in and of itself.
All in all, it wasn't too bad. Not my cup of tea, but I'll still maybe read the next book. Though if it is anything like this one, that will be a bit of a challenge. Sep 13, Stuti Turmeric isn't your friend. MUch-shuck, how old was I when I tried to read this one? That was a loooong while ago and even my pre-teen, therefore by default, extremely lame, brain found this one tres horrible.
I remeber liking all these quotes at the beginning of the chapters, and sometimes the imagery was pretty that's what I remember; it'll probably be sparkly now , but the overall story was too crappy, and it was also one of the first love-triangles I'd read, and I detested it. The MC and her special-snowflake-treated-as-a-pariah-shit bugged me all kinds of wrong ways.
The vampy guy was at least better than the fairy guy- ugh, he was so goddamn you're mine, we're destined , and I just wanted to bash him in the all the inappropriate places. This was probably the first book I hated. Whoa, guys this is the important stuff they leave out in history classes. The recent history, the history being made. What do you think, a couple years from now, when you're giving tests or taking part in trivia or those quiz shows or even trying to cozy up to someone, knowing about Atila or Forest Policies or New Earswick or Ebenezer Howard is gonna help you?
Or will it be me and my reviews and my posts that's gonna help you reach you endgoal?

Stay tuned in to my frequency, folks, and you will have a shot at a better lifestyle. The history two years from now will be my days of today. I will monopolize history, just you wait Dec 27, Chelsea rated it liked it. First of all, this is the first book I have read on my new Nook. That being said, there were a lot of errors, the Nook Editors really need to step up their game. It made the book hard to enjoy when I am spotting typos left and right. Secondly, I gave this book 3 stars and maybe it only deserves 2, but I did enjoy it.
The characters were vastly underdeveloped, and the relationships between them were unreliable and unrealistic at best. The plot line, the demons, and the "other world" feel to it is all good in my opinion. However, the relationships and how the characters acted in the classic love triangle left something to be desired.
Some of the elements of the story were hard to grasp and poorly explained. Crucial elements could have been simplified, but rather were woven into complex details that just annoyed me. Even the main character was just plain stupid at times. Overall, 3 stars, whatever. Dec 04, Amanda rated it it was amazing. It was a fairly quick read and I enjoyed every bit of it.
Although, there were some editing issues.
I have read alot of fairy books and this one definitely stands alone. It wasn't like anything else I have read. I enjoyed the characters and Rae the main character is hilarious. She is a strong, spunky, very independent girl who is not about to let any guy tell her what to do of feel. Something every girl will envy. Not only that she seems to have every hot guy in the palm of her hand!
Loved the B It was a fairly quick read and I enjoyed every bit of it. Loved the Book and Can't wait for the next one. Definitely one of the better books I have read this year. Originally released in the ebook is currently being re-edited praise be to the gods of writing. The new edition, with a shinny new cover and re-titled Glamour , is due for release at the end of March This review is in response to the version. What it's about On a post-apocalyptic earth humans live in heavily fortified compounds, protected from the demons that roam outside their walls by the militaristic Sect.
Breandan is just as strange, if not stranger, than she is and he tells her things, things about herself, that could see her exiled, imprisoned or dead. The cover is simply designed with nice typography and an elegant colour scheme. It doesn't show the woman's face, which I think is a smart move as it leaves room for the reader to imagine what she presumably the protagonist, Rae looks like. I just didn't want to have to put up with: Despite this habit there were some really great descriptions.
How the wind feels through your hair, such it felt as a gust[ed] over and under my wings. I spun and tried to catch the thick length of skin protruding from the base of my spine It was warm, soft and I stared dumbfounded at the hard, leaf like tip. Fletcher seemed to vacillate between these wonderful descriptions and info dumps that just made me want to smack someone usually Rae over the head. I objected to how she called Tomas and Breanden boys when she describes them like men.
She robs the characters of authority and sex appeal and makes Rae sounds silly in the process. Two things I would like to point out are: For example fairies and shape-shifters are not demons, neither are goblins, witches or vampires, although you could probably make a case for the later. I can understand why Fletcher wanted to lump all supernatural creatures under one banner but there are more accurate words than 'demon', words like sups, preternaturals, monsters and abnormals thank you.
I feel like the structure is messed up. My overall opinion Dear Ms Fletcher, can I edit your next book? I don't think I could keep myself from murdering Rae, who starts out a little silly and quickly degenerates into a moron. Kudos though to Fletcher for publishing her own book and getting it out there to be read by a lot of people. Will her next book be a paid one? If so how much will it be sold for and will people buy it? People do judge books by their covers and a well-designed, elegant cover can hide a lot of sins.
I'll post an update once I've read it. I know some people don't like 3 star reviews, thinking it's a negative thing, but I did LIKE the book. Her history, life situation, and the revelations of her heritage all made perfect sense for a complex character. Rae isn't that complex. There is no surprise. She lives in a state of wonderful denial. She discovers she has magical abilities, but decides to just ignore this because it means she's not human.
Also, she comes across as rather stupid. She can't even remember her own school schedule. I flip-flopped back and forth between liking the character and not liking the character and finally came out of the book with a shrug. She is what she is. I would say it's the books strong point. She has clearly put a lot of thought into the post-apocalyptic world Rae lives in. It's a very messy, dangerous world with no real clear indicator of who is the "good" guy and who is the "bad" guy. The humans' reaction to the monsters coming out of the closet and basically slaughtering them to almost extinction makes perfect sense.
You kill them and try to save yourself.
The monsters viewpoint on humanity is also interesting. There is a lot of moral ambiguity in this story, which I liked a lot. The Descriptions - The author can definitely create beautiful sentences that are rich with detail and paint a vivid picture in your mind. I marveled at the sheer lushness of her writing at times. It was very engrossing. The supporting cast- I liked a lot of the minor characters in this story much more than Rae. I found them to be extremely intriguing and well-developed. I especially enjoyed two of the male characters Tomas and Conall.
Also, the witch, Ana, was a really cool character when she was about. The overall plot- The plot is nothing we haven't seen before: But somehow the author made it feel fresh again. And that takes talent. He sets Rae up so she's robbed of any choice in her future. It's definitely insta-love of the magical variety. Rae is rebellious by nature and to see her pinned down by the magical love match really sucked. Despite how beautiful Breandan is or how supposedly noble he is, I can't like someone who robs another person of their free will intentionally.
Also, this forces us into a love triangle. Since Rae always opts to do the dangerous, stupid, impulsive thing, we all know she would have picked the vampire in a heartbeat. But to get her into a love triangle with the "good guy" fairy, she gets robbed of her free will in the matter. The Descriptions - Yes, what I really liked about this book, I also came to hate at one point. Sometimes the descriptions worked really well, but there was a section in the book I had to literally force my way through. There is one conversation that takes forever because every little thought, every little movement, every little expression is described in flowing detail.
I would get to the next line in the conversation and realize I forgot what the previous line had been. I slogged through this section and almost gave up. The use of the word Demon- Vampires, fairies, and all other magical creatures are pegged as demons by the humans. That I could buy. These other races come out of nowhere and kill most of humanity and you're going to call them demons. But what I didn't get is why Rae, the fairies, and all the other magical creatures call themselves demons, too.
It seems like such a derogatory word. Also, most of the magical races don't fit the traditional description of demons, so I couldn't figure out why the magical creatures would call themselves by it. I kept waiting for someone to say to Rae, "Stop using that word! The author can definitely write. She is very talented. But she may need a much stricter editor that will challenge her on content and not just be fixing typos, grammar, and punctuation. The author is definitely wildly imaginative and that alone made me like this book. Dec 17, Jessanie82 rated it it was ok.
A great concept - a tough, if slightly undecided, heroine, a dizzying world of fae creatures, a war against not only humans but rebel fairy forces all point to what should be a stellar read, but for me this book fell short of expectations. I personally felt it could have been fleshed out a bit more, relationships explored more, one example being Rae and her Cleric friends, and perhaps told over more than one night.
I was a bit taken aback with the frenetic pace of the action and had to wonder how Rae didn't keel over from sheer exhaustion from it all! Everyone loves a rockin' rollin' action packed read, I know I do, but I also love time taken out to establish a back story and relationships. Everyone has noted the editing and grammatical errors, so I won't spend too long on that issue, just note that it left me quite disjointed at times and I had to actually stop and think 'now what word is that meant to be?
The only really big problem I had was the weird skip from chapter 9 to I thought that somehow I had missed a chapter and went back to see if I had, but no. It was like a sentence had been cut out. One minute she's standing in a field talking to Devlin about her mother, the next she's tied up and just coming to?
I didn't understand how she got there. I'd also like to find out how we ended up with this world, with humans barricaded behind enchanted fences and giant walls and fae creatures roaming the surrounding forrests. I noted that in once scene she runs into an old city, complete with burnt out cars, so is this a possibile future of our current world? Do humans develop mutations in their genes which lead to these 'demons' being brought forth into the world? When did it all happen, how did the world react, when did the big war happen?
These are all questions that popped into my head after reading the scene with the burnt out cars. All in all I did enjoy this book, although it did take me quite a long time to read, and I look forward to seeing if Rae can live up to all the expectations everyone seems to have of her in the next installment! Mar 29, Lindsay rated it did not like it. Ebook was free Price I would willingly pay: I'm going to say it, and i truly mean it, Enough with the goddamn Twilight Love Triangle destiny rubbish, good god it has been done to death, and it is so unrealistic, and i am saying that about a fantasy book.
It is terible, "oh he is my destiny, nothing could ever come between us" "Oh wait i have such a connection with this other guy" please enough! Things happened so quickly, Their fighting, then the enemies are fighting together, Ebook was free Price I would willingly pay: Things happened so quickly, Their fighting, then the enemies are fighting together, It is all a bit confusing. The characters were to one dimensional, Even Rae seemed very shallow and not overly developed.
I think she took being a fairy far to quickly and quietly. She just believed it and moved on, only making mention of it a few times. Why could we not see Alex and Ro and Conall developed just a little bit more. Taking a Vampire to her room was, again, so unbelievable, she has been taught her whole life to hate demons and within an hour she loves one and is hiding another? I know with fantasy we have to suspend reality for a while but not common sense!
I can't say to much more without giving spoilers away which i refuse to do in my reviews. The spelling and Grammer were ok 2. Good Use of the Fae creatures 3. I am honestly struggling to find good points. Which is odd as i usually find something i like about every book i read. The fact is, i didn't enjoy this book, doesn't mean no one else will, it just didn't do it for me.
Jan 12, Elena rated it did not like it Shelves: I read this because it was a free Nookbook, and now I can see why. The story itself had an interesting premise, but it devolved very quickly into what read like bad fan-fic, in the same style as the Twilight books. The worst thing, though, was that it was clear the writer either had no editor or a really awful one. The sheer number of typos and errors made trying to get into the story incredibly difficult. I kept having to pause to figure out her intent because of all the misplaced commas, or to I read this because it was a free Nookbook, and now I can see why.
I kept having to pause to figure out her intent because of all the misplaced commas, or to decide which word she meant there was a lot of the word "of" instead of the word "off" and other such mistakes. In short, I felt like I was having to grade a high school student's paper on creative writing. I'll give her credit for having some interesting ideas on the basis of the story, such as the incident in world history dubbed "the Rupture" in which most of humanity had been wiped out and the survivors now lived inside small cities surrounded by walls from which they never ventured outside.
The ideas of the Clerics and the Demons were also pretty interesting. I was just disappointed that it turned into a really awful "love" story, where the main character is, of course, great and powerful and torn between two great and powerful men. Jul 07, Kristin rated it did not like it Shelves: I can literally count the of books I have done this with on one hand. This book is THAT bad. The grammar is atrocious, misspellings, fragmented sentences, you name it.
It is in need of some serious editing. The world building is practically non-existent up until this point and not much of anything makes sense other than they must be in some sort of post-apocalytpic world where demons have taken over and humans are protected by other highly trained humans called Clerics in some sort of compound that they are not allowed to leave. The MC is training to be a Cleric but there is no explanation of what exactly this entails.
The storyline suffers greatly in that the author does not provide complete, well though out descriptions of what is going on. She jumps from one aspect to the next without clear transitions. The writing honestly reminds me of my eighth grade writing skills where I would move along too quickly, assuming that the reader knew what I was talking about without slowing down to fully develop my thought processes. I don't know, maybe it gets better, some of the reviews are positive, but the lack of writing skill is just too much for me to wade through any further. View all 7 comments.
Sep 19, Brandy rated it liked it Shelves: I've had this book on my radar for a while and I finally decided to read it this weekend. There are a couple things I don't like about the book. Spelling and grammatical errors. Also errors with the format of the book. Some paragraphs were spaced out and just looked really weird and confusing. When there should have been a "where" there was a were. Totally different words with completely different meanings. Rae, the main character is more wishy washy than Bella from Twilight. Of course there I've had this book on my radar for a while and I finally decided to read it this weekend.
Of course there is the infamous love triangle HATED and our heroine is stuck an doesn't know what to do. She loves one guy one minute and then hates him the next. Parts of this book did not make sense. It jumped from subject to subject leaving the reader confused and backpedaling trying to figure out what was missed. Now that I've stated my complaints, let me point out that the book was free, so there is a plus. Also, the premise for the story was actually really great. It was just executed very poorly. I fully intend on reading the second installment of this book in the high hopes that possibly a better editor came along and that the author will slow down a little now that the characters are established and explain a little more in depth!

It's a bit frustrating the setting is nice but the the main character didn't cut it for me as well as the way the plot developed and twisted I felt it was kind of dumb at the end. I have to admit that I almost settled for 2 out of 5 stars on this one. It is a shame since the book has a lot of the good ingredients like a protagonist learning how to use her new powers, some mysteries and twists, lots of bad guys to dispose off. Unfortunately the immature behavior of the heroin was really putting me off. I am still on the fence as to whether I will continue with this series. This was definitely fun.
Angry, snarky, and somewhat twisted these characters kept me reading. I really enjoyed this story. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series. While not an absolute favorite book, I found it to be a story will follow up on in the future. There are some holes in the characters that I hope will be filled in in the future.
All in all a decent read. It is different than other writer who is fantasy. I will read series book as next book will be coming out soon. I liked this introduction into a new Urban Fantasy series. It is the story of Reika and opens with a bang and goes crazy from there. I laughed and moaned through most of it. Enjoy a night in with these popular movies available to stream now with Prime Video.
