Book Description

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 Wilder 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.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's rare these days to come across a fairy/vampire book that has a plot that has not been done before and grabs your attention from the get go. Glamour hooked me in from the very beginning and definitely would not let me go. It made me giggle, laugh outright, and then gasp in shock, thoroughly enjoyable. Cannot wait for the next installments." - MystGrrl's Book Lair

From the Author

Compel, book two of the Rae Wilder series is available to download.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great story, but difficult to read April 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I found the plot an characters in this story brilliant, very good pace and always something exciting happening. Also the way Rae talks through the story can be quite comical at times, and it was refreshing to have a strong female character, rather than the weak willed characters that become frustrating after a while.
My only problem was that there were quite a few typos, and parts of the story that didn't read very clearly. I especially found this in fight scenes where it became quite difficult to understand at times and I had to re read a few sections to fully get what was going on.
Definitely give this book a go though!

3.0 out of 5 stars Light Read, no depth. March 21, 2011
By T | J
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first started reading this book, I kept having to go back and reread paragraphs as I just wasn't able to follow along. The book is pretty fast paced, which might explain my inability to keep up in the beginning.
Also, there could be some explanations as the author bypasses alot of key points in the book that make it hard to follow. Its not very indepth into character or key plots, its very much a light read.
That being said however I found the book entertaining and totally want to strangle Rae, the main character; she is pretty wishy washy when it comes to men. Rae has trouble adjusting which I get, but sometimes her problems are just extreme.

I will say, that since this seems to be a trilogy, the next books could provide more depth into the characters and key plots. I am willing to read them to find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down... January 26, 2011
By Alicia
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book! I didn't feel like the writing was stiff at all and I must have read the "cleaned up" version b/c I only noticed a couple grammatical/spelling errors. The day did seem very long, but Rae gets up a few hours before the sun comes up & when you start your day that early it does seem never-ending. Pile on everything Rae goes through and you do have a recipe for the worlds worst day! If you like books about creatures that only exist in the moments of time that can't be seen, then give this book a chance. My only complaint is that I didn't realize it was book 1 of a series, so when I got to the end I was a little irritated that I will have to wait for the next book to come out. It seems I'm not a very patient person.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs a rewrite and intense editing April 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Per popular demand...fair warning: A few Spoilers ahead.

This book is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has been clustered inside walled cities to guard against demons (vampires, witches, fairies, etc). Rae is a girl training to become a Cleric until one day she discovers she is a fairy. So, starts this book. The entire storyline takes place in 2 days but, oh boy! does a lot happen in 2 days. Rae is thrust into a war between 2 fairy factions, 2 love interests (the fairy named Breandan and the vampire named Tomas) and so on...

I found the idea of the story interesting. This book does have some potential IF some very big issues are addressed.

Grammar: If there was ever a book in need of an edit, this is the one. The grammatical errors, missing words, wrong words (at one point the author writes `right' when it should have been `wrong'), etc. made reading the book so distracting and frustrating that I could barely concentrate on the plot. I don't think I went 2 pages without encountering a mistake.

Character development: Characters are largely undeveloped and have no depth, even the main ones. For example, we get very little in terms of interaction between Rae and her best friend Alex, so the events of the end did not have any effect on me whatsoever. We didn't get to care about Alex at all. We learned little about her, and only through Rae's narration. Basically, that is the problem, we learned everything from the author telling us than from the character development.

Character interaction: I will make allowances for Rae's sudden trusting happy lovey dovey relationship with Breandan but, not with Tomas. We get no frame of reference, rhyme or reason as to why Rae is interacting with the vampire Tomas the way she is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh awesome, I'm a fairy! September 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh my gosh, this is the totally awesome story of how I found out I was a demon (well, actually a beautiful fairy) with super-cool powers who is actually the key to the future of fairies and maybe the world! I was in school to learn how to fight demons, but fortunately I didn't pay much attention, so everybody I meet in the fairy world has to spend tons of time explaining fairy powers and society to me. And I get my very own fairy-boy! We're like, fated, to be together . . . at least until I get my vampire-boy! Now that I'm a fairy, I'll do whatever I want! I'll sneak vampires into my dorm room despite the fact that they eat humans and I totally live with a bunch of humans! I'll make out with my fairy-boy and then I'll make out with my vampire-boy. There's a whole fairy society and stuff, but that doesn't matter, because I make my own rules! Rules are for losers who aren't very important fairies.

Did I mention that I'm beautiful and I have tons of powers that nobody else has and I am in love with a fairy AND a vampire? In case you didn't get it, I'll refer to my fairy-boy and my vampire-boy a few more times. Check out the sequels where I'm sure to break some more rules, uncover more unprecedented powers that only I have, and be with two guys while I try to figure out which one of them I really want - the fairy-boy I have an inexplicable, instant, and powerful bond with or the vampire-boy I have an inexplicable, instant, and powerful bond with!

The set up was a bit slow in the beginning and threw in some confusing facts right away. The action scenes were very descriptive and enjoyable.

Hello.

So there are two versions of this book out there. Version one was published in Oct2010 but had twelve typo's/missing words. When I realized this I sent the book to a copy editor and had it revised and republished it on Jan201001. I'm not saying it's perfect now, but all the positive... Read More
