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!
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.
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!
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.Read more ›
