Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really liked this book - it had a lot of action in it.
Sabina is an assassin who is trying to gain the much deserved respect from her granmother (the head of the Domaine) only problem is - Sabina is half vampire and half mange - meaning her grandmother is highly dissapointed in just about everything Sabina does - just because she was born.
It's kind of sad that way. But She is tested towards her loyalty - even if it means killing her friend :(
She is sent away by her Grandmother to dis-connect herself from the Domaine - to try to convince everyone that she is on her own.
When She is approached by Franco (Frank) and brought to Clovis - The good smartian half vampire, half demon whom is trying to save the world by bringing Vampires, Mange, Fae , Mortals etc together to live in peaceful harmony.
But there is only on mission that Sabina is on - and that's to please her grandmother.
Enter Sexy Hexy - Adam - *sigh* Adam is a Mange whom was sent by the High councel to keep an eye on Sabina.
She gets really annoyed with him popping up all over the place following her - but after awhile - They start to become friends
Since Sabina is an assassin - she is use to working on her own without anyone else to care for - so having friends on her side - someone to watch her back - that's new to her. And she's not sure how to handle it.
The final battle happens and Now Sabina is looking at her life in a brand new light -
I really enjoyed this book - it was a lot of fun to read - My favorite charactor has to be Giguhl - The Demon whom was summons by Adam to kill her. Since she grew up as a Vampire - she couldn't send him back to where he belongs, only the one who summons him can - so she is stuck with a demon for a while - he watches TV 24 hours a day and uses her credit card to order things.
When she leaves for SanFrancisco to meet with Clovis - Giguhl comes with her in the form of a cat. They have regular conversatations and become good friends :) I want a demon :)
I will be starting The Mange in Black tomorrow - but I'm still waiting for Green Eyed Demon to come in at the library - i'm #1 on the waiting list - but it usually takes a month or so for the order to go through :(
