it was amazing
Read in January, 2010

This series is not quite either paranormal romance or urban fantasy, but is more pure fantasy with sexual tension. It takes place in the fantasy land of Rheskilia, with this particular book exclusively on the Isle of Mid, which is essentially a university for mages.

Our protagonist is Raine Benares, an elf who has left her family of pirates to become a Seeker, which is basically just a thief-for-hire. In the first book, Raine is hired to steal a necklace, but gets a surprise when that necklace turns out to be the Saghred - a magical artifact of unimaginable power. The Saghred metaphysically attaches itself to Raine and, of course, all hell breaks loose.

In this third book of the series, Raine has taken the Saghred to the Isle of Mid to protect it from those who would try to steal it (and her) for their own nefarious use. Turns out the Isle is pretty much the worst place she could have taken it. A Hellgate is opened and she must face down a demon horde intent on gaining possession on the Saghred & its wielder. And avoid all other parties who are out to get her.

Similar series are: The Retriever series by Laura Anne Gilman (though more of a UF), the Hero series by Moira M. Moore, the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, and the Elantra series by Michelle Sagara
