Jaye Wells wades into the supernatural romance field, rewriting the vampire/werewolf legends yet again in this, her debut novel. Sabina Kane is a half breed, her vampire mother mated with her magic using father. Both parents died and Sabina is raised by her grandmother, one of the three ruling members of the vampire council. Sabina has been trained as an assassin and the book opens with her finishing up a job yet tasked with one that is much harder, the killing of a friend now labeled a traitor. From official release/information:
Product Description: 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.
