Hold on tight -- a gritty new heroine has joined the pantheon of shoot-first, ask-questions-later protagonists. New talent Wells sets up a tragic dynamic for her first-person heroine. Despite the blistering pace and darkness of the plot, she neatly balances things with a deft smattering of humor. Here's to the next installment.

Sabina Kane has spent her life trying to make up for the circumstances of her birth. As a half-mage/half-vampire, she's an oddity, only tolerated because of her assassin skills and her loyalty to her grandmother, the head
of the vampire Dominae. But all that Sabina believes starts to crack after she's ordered to kill a friend.

Sabina inadvertently gains a sidekick when the demon sent to kill her doesn't succeed, and until she can figure out how to send him back, she's stuck with Giguhl. Which may not be so bad, especially since events are racing toward a dangerous confrontation! (ORBIT, Apr., 352 pp., $7.99)
