Rae Wilder has problems. Plunged into a world of dark magic, fierce creatures and ritual sacrifice, she is charged with a guarding a magical amulet.

he truth. Let me go, you don't understand what will happen. My brothers-"

The Lord Cleric punched her. Her head flew back and a spray of blood wet the dry mud and spattered over the leaves concealing me. Face wet with tears and whimpering, she tried to crawl toward the trees and dragged up clumps of earth with her fingernails.

"You must let me go." The words sounded muffled, like she had a mouthful of something foul.

The Lord Cleric executed a neat half turn and stamped on her thigh. There was a sharp snap, like I'd picked up a twig and yanked on the ends until the fibers split apart and cracked open. The fairy's leg buckled into an unnatural shape and she screamed. The sound was guttural, a direct translation of pain to sound. I slapped a hand over my mouth to smother my own shriek. Not because of the broken bone, I'd seen and heard tons of those, but because I'd caught the Lord Clerics profile and recognized the handsome face. The Lord Cleric dragged the fairy back into the centre of th

"The Demon Girl" feels as if you were reading "Twilight".
It's not bad but it's just not the right book for me.
Wow. Good potential for a great story but never hits it's mark. Too much information withheld from the main character and so much secrecy that I've lost interest but will finish it because I always finish the books I matter how painful it can be sometimes. The editing is some of the worse I've come across making the story hard to follow at times. My recommendation to someone thinking about reading this book would be to not bother with it. I just learned that the story continues in another book. It'll have to continue without me. :-(
An excellent fantasy story! I wish the sequel “The Demon Day” was available in free ebook so I could learn what happens next.
OMG, in love with this book! I couldn't put it down! I hope she keeps writing. I also hope she gets a new editor there were so many selling and punctual errors! XD love it.
Very much in need of a good editor, especially in the beginning where the author insists on introducing a new character almost every page. I also found the main characters not terrible likeable, which ruins a book for me.
The only thing it needs to become an amazing book is a good editor, as others have already commented. The story feels refreshing; it is original enough for me to appreciate. Although it does hold elements that may seem to be overused nowadays, such as vampires, these are used well and taken a little further from the cliché. The characters are round enough to be enjoyable.
Again, the problem with this book is the incredible amount of grammatical and orthographic errors. These often caused me confusion, and made me want to stop reading altogether. The book was only saved by its good story, all because the author has great potential; she knows how to engage the reader!
i have read demon girl and the sequel i think they were both great books i couldnt pull my head out of the stories i wish some things could have been a little different but everyone love for things to turn out the way they would like it too in books or movies for that matter anyway im looking forward to your next books i also love how the books were not a short story keep up the good work
