Today is the release date of THE MAGE IN BLACK by JAYE WELLS! *applauds* This is book two of the Sabina Kane trilogy that started with the Jaye’s awesome debut novel THE RED-HEADED STEPCHILD.
It is out today in the US (April 1st in the UK) – I would out searching the city for a copy this very moment if it weren’t for the fact I’m on holiday. *sighs*
So what is all the fuss about? Well, besides being an amazing writer, Jaye Wells has created what is probably the most kick-ass universe I have read in a looong while. The Red-Headed Stepchild is pure action-packed, no-frills urban fantasy – with a giant dollop of brilliant humour. Wells can make me scared and make me laugh – it’s insane. Seriously, I’d be jealous if I weren’t hooked on every word.
Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells
Summary: In a world where being of mixed blood is a major liability, Sabina doesn’t really fit in. And being an assassin – the only profession fit for an outcast – doesn’t help matters. But she’s never brought her work home. Until now.
Her latest mission is uncomfortably complex and threatens the fragile peace between vampire and mage races. As Sabina scrambles to figure out which side she’s on, she uncovers a tangled political web, some nasty facts about her family, and some unexpected new talents. Any of these things could be worryingly life changing, but together they could be fatal…
Sabina Kane: She’s down, but she’s not out.
