Imagine a city divided. On one side, the night worl ruled by the Blood Lords and the Beast Kind. On the other, Elusive Fae and the Humans protected by their steadfast mages. A city held together by nothing more than a threaty-and even then, just barely . . . I was born a Fae mother, but I had no place among her kind. They called me soulless. An abomination. Perhaps they're right . . . I am a wraith, a shadow who slips between worlds. I was given into the service of the Blood Lord Lucius, who raised me to be the most feared assassin. Still I'm nothing more than a slave to my master and to the need that only can fulfil . . . Then Lucius orders me to kill Simon DuCaine, a powerful sunmage. In the blaze of Simon's magic, my own disappears. Instead of seeking revenge, he shows me mercy. He wants to free me. But that's one thing my master and his kind will never allow. And even if I thought I could trust Simon, stepping from the shadows into the light isn't as simple as it sounds . . . 'Had me hooked from the very first page.'

Hurray - a new ( to me ) series to explore. Thought this first book was good not overloaded with action and intrigue but good enough to keep one interested.
