Review: Red-Headed Stepchild

Red-Headed Stepchild
Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the debut novel by Urban Fantasy powerhouse Jaye Wells.

Sabina Kane is a gritty, hardboiled half-blooded Vampire on a quest to take down a dangerous cult leader and save the world on behalf of Vampire society. Along the way she falls for a hunky Mage, gains a pet Demon disguised as a cat, and learns that she may be a pawn intended to start a larger war.

If you’re wanting action-plus-supernatural, with just a dash of romance, this the book for you. It’s a blast, with great action setpieces, great characters, and wonderful twists along the way.

I really appreciate the strong anti-heroine, and the clever world building (Examples: Vampires are born that way, not “created”, and are part of the progeny of Lilith. They are killed only by applewood stakes or apple juice — because apples are the forbidden fruit.)

Very fun. Go get it!
