Three centuries of life gives a girl perspective and a lot of time to try out interesting occupations. For Zara Lain being an assassin with a bit of thievery on the side fills the time from one decade to the next. Her current contract, assumed from her best friend, as best a friend a vampire can be with a wealthy witch, is to take out the head of the local coven and his son if time allows. Time doesn’t allow and Zara finds herself fang deep in demonized reanimated bodies and on the wrong side of a total war against all the major covens. It doesn’t help that her friend lied to her and then managed to get herself blown up.
This not-to-be-missed release rocks from word one. It has been a long, long time since I have encountered a vampire heroine I actually liked, but I adore this one. Zara Lain is the epitome of snark. She has her act together and doesn’t lie to herself about her motives. She’s quick on her feet with a response and quick-witted with a retort. A heroine after my own heart. Unlike so many heroines of urban fantasy Zara isn’t out to call the shots because she knows best, and thankfully she does not she suffer from a martyrdom complex. This girl is all right.

I am not an easy to please reader but Cameron has managed to impress me. Skyla Dawn Cameron is a writer to look for because she is going to the top very soon and I suspect she wants to take her readers along for the ride.
