Red-Headed Stepchild (Sabina Kane Series #1)

Red-Headed Stepchild - Jaye Wells I should have started this series long ago. Fun, action-packed, good humor and quick pacing make for an enjoyable read.Sabina Kane is half-vampire, half-mage in a world where inter-supernatural species dating is frowned upon. She grew up under the not-very-tender care of her vampire grandmother who molded Sabina into an assassin. Sabina's always trying to prove that she is good enough to be a vampire, but still is mainly an outsider. Then she's given a job to go undercover to infiltrate a half-demon's cult and kill him. She meets a mage who seems to follow her every move, ends up with a demon familiar and gets a perky dryad for a roommate, all the while the truth about her family comes out swinging.Expect heavy doses of snark, lots of fighting, and a hilarious demonic hairless cat. I'll be getting book 2 to read more. If you are looking for a fun summer read, give the Sabina Kane series a try.
