Blade Song by J.C. Daniels

First off, I absolutely adored this book. I am so used to adult fiction books that are all about sex, some actual plot, and more sex. Lone behold the  heroine actually has some backbone, and character depth. She (Kit) doesn't magically get over all her issues and has some decent fighting scenes. To many heroines suffer from TSTL (To stupid to Live), but not this one. Now that I have gushed about how much I love this book, I give you props Daniels, for creating an old school I just want to read for enjoyment book.

Now ...drum roll...here's the summary of the book.
Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.
So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.
Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.
If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee…

Finally for your viewer enjoyment let's break this book down.
Heroine/sorta damsel in distress: (Kit Colbana) Wields a kickass word, smart mouthed, and keeps  going even when faced with (weres, vampires, deranged humans). Also, she holds a secret soft spot for kids. Faces some nightmarish physcological turmoil, but still manges to sucks it up.
Dark knight/man candy: (Damon) What's not to love? He's nice looking, protective, and creates some steamy tension with our heroine. He's your normal all around love interest with a few supernatural twists. (aka werecat)
Seems like he's  not so bad, nope he's a villain: (Jude the vampire) Vampires are not all sparkly and secretly still holding onto there humanity in this book. Nope this guy likes blood and is manipulative with a capital M. He gives some real bad guy spice to a genera that has way to many friendly vamps.
