Blade Song is my first reading venture into Urban Fantasy and I loved it! I couldn't get enough. As soon as I finished the book, I wanted the next one in the series. Unfortunately, Night Blade isn't out yet.
Blade Song is written in first person from Kit's point of view. Kit is a kickass heroine who is still discovering what the magic within her can do. She has issues that she’s working through while doing a job for the local alpha shapeshifters. A job she really doesn’t want to do but has to or she’s dead. I loved Kit because I felt like I could relate to her even though she lives in a world with magic and shapeshifters.
Kit calls Damion an asshole throughout the book. I whole heartily agreed with her in the beginning. Gradually, Damion changed and won me over. Not an easy thing to do without the benefit of his point of view. By the end, I loved him.
While Blade Song isn’t a romance, the romantic thread between Kit and Damon was enough for me (a person who rarely reads a fiction book that isn’t a romance). I’m curious to see where the relationship between Kit and Damon will head in future books.
I recommend this book to any reader especially romance reader who wants to venture into Urban Fantasy. A worthwhile read that will leave you wanting more.
5 Stars – A Must Read (a book I will definitely read again)

Blurb from J.C. Daniels website:
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…
