About Penelope Fletcher

'My female characters are dear to me. I strive to allow them their strength and their innate femininity. As for loyalty to their emotional, romantic hearts and their sense of social responsibility and destiny, I see no need to sacrifice one for the other. Women wield an intoxicating power. It goes beyond physical prettiness to the beauty of the whole. Without the poetry of the mind and heart the body becomes a useless thing. I want my female characters to be brave, daring, and bold. I wish for their minds to be as relevant and celebrated as their bodies.' ~Penelope Fletcher, 2014

A nice depiction of some standard fantasy concepts, but things moved so fast at times that the continuity and character got lost. Fun to read, but not sure I'd spend the time for the next one.

Just another story where the hero gets stuck with a soul mate that will never put him first!

Sounded good, started good, but in the second half of the book everything just started going way too fast. The writing was often confusing and the jumps in the story just annoyed me to no end.
The concept is good but it could be so much more if it was revised a bit to make to story clearer, slower and less jumpy.
I couldn't read it to the end.

From the very first chapter, this book had me hooked! And after the introduction of the vampire I knew there was no turning back - I was going to read the entire series! I would have liked to have spent a bit more time with Rae at Temple, learned more about her day-to-day life as a Disciple before discovering her real identity and destiny.

I enjoyed this book. The typos and awkward sentencing were a bit difficult at first but I soon got my ear for the flow of words and the story line was engaging and held my attention. I’m not into lovey dovey as a rule but the love triangle going on here was addictive and compelling.

Fantastic storyline, with enough action to keep me reading - I read it in only a couple of days! There were plenty of editing and typo mistakes that could use correcting, but otherwise this was a great step into a paranormal realm.

Great story, but needs to be reviewed. Perhaps, it would be a good idea to hire an editor next time.

I thought this story was amazing, the whole set-up was entirely believable, and sometimes I wondered if I could just step into the book. Your characters and witty and smart, and I can't wait for the next installment in the series. :D

At first I was unsure because Iam very picky about the fiction that I read and I am not a sci-fi kind of person. But this book pulled me in and I enjoyed the storyline and characters. I hope there will be more to come.

(from Murphy's Library -

Rae Wilder is a Disciple, which means she’s been trained to become a Cleric—the fastest, strongest and most intelligent and intuitive of humankind—at the Temple. The Clerics fight against the demons—vampires, shifters, witches, goblins and fairies, although most part of the humans believe the fairies are practically extinct—that are Outside the Wall since the Rupture (a global slaughter that had nearly wiped the entire human race of the face of the planet, according to the Priests’ sermons). Thanks to the Sect Cleric, though, the humankind survived—and now they all live inside the Wall, strongly guarded by the Clerics.

When Rae leaves her dormitory one morning to run—something she’s been doing since ever—and goes Outside, she gets in trouble. Real trouble: she witnesses two Clerics killing a green skin fairy-girl, and they see her. While running away from them—she knows she’s in trouble if they get her—, something happens. Rae feels pain, a terrible pain that runs through her entire body. And when the pain is gone, there’s this boy looking at her—and talking to her, and saying she’s his. His name is Breandan, he’s a male fairy, and he’s got some news to Rae: she’s a fairy too. A demon. Exactly the kind of creature she’s been trained to fight against.

The Demon Girl has an interesting plot—that could’ve been better told, in my opinion. The entire story happens in just two days, and it was kinda difficult to me to accept the fact that Rae’s so commited with her new world so fast. I’m not a big fan of loves triangles, but I did like Rae’s position on this one. She’s a tough girl who doesn’t let anyone tell what she’d do. I’d recommend a revision on the text—found lots of grammar errors and some typos too—, as well as on some parts of the story, and I’d advice the author to reconsider the time on the story, everything was way too fast to me.

Review by: Hollie on Oct. 30, 2010 :
Quite an intriguing read. While I found the sentence structure hard to grasp at first, once I got into the flow of the story I found myself forgetting the confusing sentences.

The premise of the story was unique, and an original twist on fantasy. I am quite looking forward to the sequel of this book.
