Things to do:
1. Rescue sister.
2. Murder grandmother.
3. Don't upset the voodoo priestess.
The clock is ticking for Sabina Kane. Her sister has been kidnapped by her grandmother, the Dark Races are on the brink of war, and a mysterious order is manipulating everyone behind the scenes.
Working on information provided by an unlikely ally, Sabina and her trusty sidekicks--a sexy mage named Adam Lazarus and Giguhl, a Mischief demon--head to New Orleans to begin the hunt for her sister. Once there, they must contend with belligerent werewolves, magic-wielding vampires and--perhaps most frightening of all--humans.
But as much as Sabina is focused on surviving the present, the past won't be ignored. Before she can save those she cares about most, she must save herself from the ghosts of her past.
Well I’m three books deep into the Sabina Kane series and I’m still enjoying it. Wells keep delivering the snark and introducing us to more fun secondary characters. All the while showing us that a once cold heart bitch assassin and turn into a kick ass heroine.
Sabina and the gang is back (minus one vanity demon) looking for Masie. The Kane family is one dysfunctional bunch. You’ve got Sabina and Masie, twin sister that are half vampire and mage. Which it really hard since the two races can’t stand each other. Then throw in their grandmother, the vampire bitch that is the head of the vampire race. Dear ol’ granny kidnapped Masie in last book, The Mage in Black.
The gang lives New York City to search the Big Easy for Masie. All kinds of weird stuff goes down in New Orleans, from zombies to drag queen shows. But it’s not all fun and games. There’s some serious action and magic use going on in this installment. Sabina is really starting to come into her own magic and I think she is only going to get stronger in that area.
We get more action in the romance department as well this time around. Although I’m not 100% sold on Sabina and Adam. But time will tell if I come around to them being a couple.
So to sum up Green-Eyed Demon: snark, midget orgy, fast paced action and a little brown chicken, brown cow.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
