    Sabina Kane doesn't really fit in. And being an assassin doesn't help matters. But she's never brought her work home. Until now. Sabina's latest mission is uncomfortably complex and threatens the fragile peace between the vampire and mage races. As she 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 lethal.

    Readers Confession says: "Good potential"
    "One of the Worst Books I've "Read""

    Would you try another book from Jaye Wells and/or Cynthia Holloway?

    Not Jaye Wells.


    Has Red-Headed Stepchild turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Don't let this book put you off of Urban Fantasy if you did not like it. I have read a lot of books in the genre and I can tell you this one is exceptionally bad.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This narrator also does the Chicagoland Vampire series, which I have also bought through Audible in the past. The worst thing about her performance is that she mispronounces a lot of words, which is incredibly annoying to me. She also has an overly melodramatic style of reading, which is off-putting to me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Red-Headed Stepchild?

    Throughout the book there are countless inconsistencies in character and plot. Neither are well thought out or developed, making it impossible to understand the characters motivations, stay interested in the plot, or suspend disbelief. It seemed as if the author was just making things up as she went along, heedless of previous events in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I struggle to understand how this book gets such good reviews from so many people. I was extremely disappointed since the premise of the characters and story has such potential. I pride myself on finishing the books I start reading even if they are not favorites. Finishing this book definitely put me to the test.
