This meme is about showcasing favourites. Each week I plan to showcase a favourite book or series, past and present and tell you all why I love it and why you should try it! If you want to join in, please go to our host Natalie and leave a comment on her Friday Favourites post with a link to your post. If enough of us join in, she'll provide a linky for us all to connect. So what are you waiting for?

 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


MY REVIEW:
 
Sabina Kane is an assassin who is half vampire half mage, earning the disapproval of her Grandmother, the head of the Dominae vampires and Sabina's boss. Her latest assignment is to go as a spy to the enemy camp led by the evil Clovis who is trying to unite the other races against the vampires. But life is complicated when the Mage community contact Sabina to try to convince her that her place is with them and not the vampires who look down on her. Who is the real enemy:Clovis, her Grandmother's vampires or the Mage?

Sabina is tough and sassy like your typical UF heroine and the book has plenty of action to keep you interested. The dialogue is clever, her snarky attitude is entertaining and her character evolves nicely throughout the book. There is really wonderful humour in the form of Giguhl, a demon assassin sent to kill Sabina who ends up addicted to the shopping channel before becoming trapped in the body of an ugly hairless cat, and nymph Vinca, sweet and slightly dim new BFF!

Sabina is caught between several warring parties and it's hard to pick a side when nothing much makes sense anymore. She discovers more about her nature and what is really going on in the war thanks to Adam, a sexy mage who wants Sabina on their side. For those who like a bit of PNR, you'll enjoy Adam and Sabina's relationship development.

This book had everything for me-action, humour, potential romance and I'm so looking forward to reading book 2
