(Shaede Assassin #1)
Publisher: Signet Eclipse, December 6th, 2011

In the shadows of the night, Darian has lived alone for almost a century. Made and abandoned by her former love, Darian is the last of her kind-an immortal Shaede who can slip into darkness as easily as breathing. With no one else to rely on, she has taught herself how to survive, using her unique skills to become a deadly assassin.
When Darian’s next mark turns out to be Xander Peck, King of the Shaede Nation, her whole worldview is thrown into question. Darian begins to wonder if she’s taken on more than her conscience will allow. But a good assassin never leaves a job unfinished…

My Thoughts
In the first installment of the series Shaede Assassin what promises to be an exciting addition to the UFRW “Heh? Ha just made that one up” (Urban Fantasy Readers World), Amanda Bonilla has given me a unique world and got me hooked on this fantastic series. Shaedes of Gray has everything an Urban Fantasy novel should have: lots of action, a kick ass heroine, lust, smoking hot men men, paranormal beings such as “a sexy” jinn, sylphs, shaedes, nasty oracles, and lots of sword-action!

I really like the heroine Darian and hoped while reading this addiction of a book, that somehow she’d find the happiness she sought. I was afraid to put the book down for fear that i would miss something. Crazy right? .. Think i miss her already!

I pulled a dagger from the sheath at my thigh and drove the point into the bar’s thick wooden tabletop.
“I take them away. Permanently.”

Shaedes of Gray is fast-paced, explosive with full force action without loosing the ‘love’ story-line that i like! These are just a few reasons why i think Shaedes of Gray is a 5 star novel!  Can’t wait for book two, Blood Before Sunrise this one will be available in July 2012. .. Unless….

Exerpt:“Xander. Had he really wanted me? Or was it just another of his tricks to keep me tied to him? I had my own personal wish granter, for who knows how long—and he hadn’t even had the decency to ask me how I felt about it.
And then there was Azriel. My former lover and maker who’d left me alone and uninformed had returned—for what? To conquer a kingdom?”  Amanda Bonilla, Shaedes of Gray
