Amazon Blurb:

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. Young Adult: British English (BrE)

NYIA Teen Book Reviewer:

This book starts off with a bang. I mean it's a mixed bag of creatures and people with all types of powerful backgrounds. I love the main character even though I wanted to shake her sometimes. This was different than any other paranormal type book that I've read. Rae, the main character sees a crime being committed and once that happens everything goes wrong. Oh, yeah, there is a love triangle, but it's done differently than other books I've read. Rae is also a strong girl, not a cry baby who doesn't have an opinion. I read this while I was getting my hair done. I give this 4 flutters out of 5. I only took off for places where Rae made me angry.

Wow. Such a great review! One reader said "He hated Rae with the passion of a thousand burning suns, but that he loved her too", lol. So you're not the first to mention she annoyed you. Great stuff!! :)

Thank you!
