This is the debut novel by author Jaye Wells.
In a world where being of mixed-blood is a major liability, Sabina has the only profession fit for an outcast: assassin. However, she's never brought her work home with her---until now.
This time, it's personal.
Her latest mission threatens the fragile peace between the
vampire and mage races. As Sabina scrambles to figure out
which side she's on, she uncovers secrets that will change
the course of her life forever.
I really enjoyed this book. The character of Sabina is a tough, kick your teeth in vampire assassin. She is also vulnerable - but tries her hardest not to show it. Sabina has a wicked sense of humor and a chip on her shoulder the size of a small cat....and speaking of cats - she has one of those too - and he is a demon familiar. :)
I can't wait for the sequel to this book. :)
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
