My-Thoughts

Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells

What I Loved:  Sabina Kane was a complicated heroine who was flawed yet very likable.  Grim was the best demon sidekick hairless cat a gal could ask for.  The whole cast of characters were very enjoyable to read.

What I Liked: I did not know what to expect when I picked up this book. I had never heard of Jaye Wells but the topic of Mages (Mancies), Vampires, and Faeries are topics I like to read about. Jaye does a wonderful job of introducing Sabina from the get-go with an action sequence that shows you this girl is all business. From there, you are thrown into a world (our world) where other creatures exist but we don’t know it. On top of that, these beings are barely on speaking terms with each other. There are political tug of wars, lying, backstabbing, and a little brainwashing going on that keeps you on your toes for the whole ride. It was a fun read and at times you just weren’t sure who you wanted to “win”. In the end you were left wanting more (hey there is a 2nd book) but you also felt like the first chapter in the journey had come to an end.

What was So-So/Didn’t Like:  Not a darn thing!  This was well delivered!

Why it got a 4:  Because it will stay on my shelf and be re-read when a new book in the series comes out.  It is funny, contains kick butt fight scenes, and keeps you engaged until the very end.  I would recommend this to any Urban Fantasy reader and even PNR readers that keep your romantic notions in check.
