Wages of Sin (Cin Craven Series)

Wages of Sin  - Jenna Maclaine I just could not put this book down. Wages of Sin was a fantastic read. Set in London in the early 1800’s, it had that historical feel mixed in with paranormal elements and a touch of romance.Cin Craven comes from a long line of powerful witches. She has not yet come into her powers – she is a bit of a late bloomer. Cin is being aggressively courted by a childhood friend Sebastian, Lord Montford. Cin realizes that Sebastian is a vampire and manages to escape by turning him into a weasel. Vowing to rid herself of the fanged menace, she travels to London to meet with the apothecary Mr. Pendergrass for help. His assistant Archie tells her about The Righteous, a group of vampires that slay the undead.And so begins a fascinating tale that includes vampires, demons, witches, a werewolf, and some pretty incredible magic…I loved Cin’s character. Yes, it is possible to have a strong female character. It’s refreshing to see a character that is so level headed, brave, and strong. Cin understands her limitations as a young witch. She is not averse to asking for help. The idea of having a group of vampires known as The Righteous policing their kind was intriguing. Devlin, Justine, and Michael were fierce fighters and well suited to help Cin fight off Kali. I liked all the characters, even the villains. Kali was over the top wacko crazy, power hungry and just wickedly evil. Sebastian, equally power hungry, made a good errand boy for Kali. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I hope that there is more about Woof, the very helpful werewolf.
