In a world where being of mixed-blood is a major liability, Sabina Kane has the only profession fit for an outcast: assassin. But, her latest mission threatens the fragile peace between the vampire and mage races and Sabina must scramble to figure out which side she's on. She's never brought her work home with her---until now.
This time, it's personal.
Wow, this book is amazing! From the moment I picked it up, I knew I was going to love it. Sabina got straight into the story by having to do something totally heartless. Yet, she did what she had to do because it's her duty. This sends the world she knows out of control. All of a sudden, she's not sure she can trust the vampire grandmother who raised her. But she still goes along with the insane new plan the Dominae have, though. After all, she is their assassin.
But Sabina's world only spins further out of control after she becomes involved with other people. All of a sudden, the mage side she has no idea about is slowly unravelling before her and she starts to learn some shocking truths.
I loved everything about this book. It was serious, yet a lot of fun! The worldbuilding is thorough, the characters are interesting and real, and Sabina's made of awesome. She really is. She's so kick ass, without being a total bitch. Well, she kinda starts out that way, but the events of this book change her. I loved that!
Actually, Sabina's character growth was one of the things that kept me so glued to this fantastic book. Oh, and Adam. No matter how much Sabina tries to push him away, and no matter how many of his own plans he has, he sticks by her. Not to mention that the demon Giguhl cracked me up. And the nymph, Vinca, was a great addition. I won't even get into the disgusting villain, Clovis. Ugh!
Yeah, this book's a total winner. Can't wait to receive the next one. :)
