Red-Headed Stepchild – Jaye Wells

Book 1 in the Sabina Kane Series

Welcome to a world where you can tell how old a vampire is by the deepness of their red hair, where vampires and mages are mortal enemies and humans have no idea of the things that are out there.  Welcome to Sabina Kane’s world.

Sabina Kane is a half breed vampire assassin, her mixed vampire/mage blood means that she has been raised as an outcast in the vampire world.  But it is the only world she has known and she will do anything to win the love and approval of  the leader of the vampires, her grandmother,  including killing her friends.

Sabina is sent on an undercover mission to infiltrate a new church that seemingly aims to unite the vampires, mages and humans.  But all is not as it seems and Sabina’s world is about to be turned on its axis with the arrival of mysterious mage Adam.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, the world building was strong but in no way detracted from the fast paced story.  Sabina is a well written character, a tough cold blooded assassin that is actually a woman seeking the love of her only family, causing her to make choices that she tries hard to pretend dotn affect her. 

Ms Wells blends an action packed novel with humor (a bald cat demon?), romance and vampire mythology with a slightly new twist.  I look forward to reading the next book and finding out if Sabina can find the acceptance she so desperately wants.
