Red headed stepchild

About the book:

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 the 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 …
This time, it’s personal.

I enjoyed this book from the beginning. It started off pretty dark but had alot of humor. Sabina is a mixed blood vampire mage who denies her mage side. She was raised by her vampire grandmother and trained to be an assassin. Eventhough she is raised in vampire society Sabina still remains an outcast. Red headed stepchild is set in contemporary times. The world includes supernatural community that consists of Fae, vampires, mages, demons . I like the backstory of Lilith being the mother of the dark races it's very interesting.

Sabina's Grandmother sends her on a mission which starts her questioning her grandmother for the first time. From here on there is much action and surprises. You see Sabina go through alot and change from who she was at the begining to a stronger person.

Redheaded stepchild is book one in a trilogy.
