Bladed Magic: A Colbana Files Prequel
For the first time in her life, Kit Colbana’s life was going just fine. Then she finds herself tangled up with a green-eyed witch by the name of Justin. He’s looking for somebody and for some bizarre reason, he seems to think she can help. All she has to do is say no, and she can go back to her safe little existence. That’s exactly what she needs to do and she knows it.
Too bad she’s not very good at following her own advice.
Book 1: Blade Song
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.
Book 2: Night Blade
Kit Colbana has a knack for finding trouble. This time, though, trouble finds her.
People on the Council are dying left and right and she’s been requested to investigate the deaths. The number one suspect? Her lover, Damon. If she doesn’t clear his name, he gets a death sentence. Even if she succeeds? They still might try to execute him. Oh, and she’s not allowed to tell him about the case, either.
The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been. Kit may be forced to pay the ultimate price to save her lover’s life…a price that could destroy her and everything she loves.
Book 3: Broken Blade
Kit Colbana: assassin, thief, investigator extraordinaire. Now broken. Haunted by nightmares and stripped of her identity, she’s retreated to Wolf Haven, the no-man’s land where she found refuge years before. But while she might want to hide away from the rest of the world, the rest of the world isn’t taking the hint.
Dragged kicking and screaming back into life, Kit is thrust head-first into an investigation surrounding the theft of an ancient relic…one that she wants nothing to do with.
Forced to face her nightmares, she uncovers hidden strength and comes face to face with one of the world’s original monsters. If she survives the job, she won’t be the same…and neither will those closest to her.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I'm a pretty big fan of the urban fantasy genre, so I usually don't mind reading books with similar plots. However, these books just seemed tired and poorly written. As I was reading I kept thinking about other very similar books that are way better (example: Fever Series and Kate Daniels series). The problem, I think, with these books is that the plot feels rushed. There isn't great character development and the conversations are fairly cliche. Theyre decent books overall, but I wouldn't recommend it.
I love the balance between thriller, mystery and romance. I was hooked from the get go and loved every bit from the characters to how Kit is emotionally off kilter to sassy and deadly. Total badass that makes me eager for more.
I love the characters! And the plot as well as finding out about Kit more.
Gripping stories. Layers made all the series interesting. Good buy.
I loved this series.
