Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells

Red-Headed Stepchild, by Jaye Wells has entertained me thoroughly these past few days. The action kept me reading. The humour made me smile several times and once or twice actually laugh out loud. It wasn’t a difficult read, i.e. you sort of had an idea of what was coming, but when the suspense concluded you may, or may not, have been correct.

Although I do not like the vampires in this world – they are just too human for my taste – and they seem very weak as far as vampires go, but this isn’t stopping me from already putting the second book in this series onto my Nook for reading. The story is good enough to keep me reading, seeing what is going to happen.

The one thing I am enjoying about Jaye Wells in this series is how the main character of Sabina Kane overcomes. It is hard being a half-vampire/half-mage in this setting because both sides despise the other.  redheadedstepchildThis gives it a wonderful ‘outcast’ feel to it, and helps for you Sabina to succeed without pitying her, which is very important.

The action is very good and the characters are believable.
