Wages of Sin

Title: Wages of Sin (Cin Craven #1)
Author: Jenna Maclaine
Published: 2008
Synopsis from Goodreads:

Dulcinea Craven descends from a long line of witches, and she has just inherited wild, untrained magical powers that she has no idea how to control. Now a ruthless vampire and an age-old demon are determined to enslave Cin and steal her power for their own. Her only hope is The Righteous, a band of warrior vampires who slay the rogue undead. Among them is Michael, a fierce swordsman who inflames Cin’s most primal hungers. Showing her a sensual pleasure beyond anything in the mortal realm, she must choose between the human existence she has always known, and immortality as a vampire—a new life filled with forbidden urges, dark yearning, and unearthly passions…

This wasn't a bad book but it wasn't a 5 Star OMG booky either. At least not for me... but you all know how Picky Picky I am ;)

I'm kind of thinking its because it the girly wasn't American. I know... I'm awful ;) I just kinda think that girls back then who are English were snobs. I know Dulcie wasn't a snob but you know how it is.

I wish they all could be California GIRLS!!


Dulcie comes from a long line of girl-power witches when one day her parents kicketh the cauldron. She then finds herself in mourning when all of the sudden there's a knock on the door and her crazy neighbor has become a vampire and wants to get his fang on. She screams and runs out towards this wizardy dude that her mom was buds with and he tells her to call Vampire-busters that is run by 3 vampires that totally won't suck her blood (unless she wants them to. *hubba hubba)

The 3 vampires seem kinda huffle puffle about being summoned to a non-Hogwartsy castle but they soon get over it and tell Dulcie the story of why they go all Buffy on their own race.


The story goes from there.

It's not a bad story but again... I'm not a big fan of Jolly Old England. I did however very much enjoy the Scottish Broody that was Michael. I did kinda wish that he was a bit more Kresley Cole like a "THROW YOU DOWN AND MAKE YOU LIKE IT" and not "Yes Dear" about stuff. Ya know? I wanted him to go all RAWR!! But lmao! He kinda did when he was all paint can about things ;) I mean.. my gawd!! Both hands couldn't get around it? LOLZ! Eek!


I recommend it to anyone who wants a good witchy story mingled in with other paranormally things. It promises to keep you entertained and leave you wondering what will happen next.
