The epic conclusion to the amazing Sabina Kane urban fantasy series.

Sabina Kane is on the hunt. Her prey: Cain, the father of the vampire race and the one who murdered her family and her friends. Unfortunately, Cain is hunting Sabina, too. The one man who holds the key to defeating Cain is, of course, Abel. A mage with secrets to spare and, hopefully, the power to match it. Unfortunately, for Sabina, he's in Rome and may not want to be found.

Sabina sets out for Italy with her friends, Giguhl and Adam Lazarus, to track down the only man who can get her the revenge she hungers for. But will he help her or oppose her? And just who is Abel, really? Worst of all, when Sabina figures out the goddess Lilith has a plan for her-she realizes this trip is getting deadlier by the minute.

As they say: when in Rome-SURVIVE.

 

First Thought: Ass womb!

The Action: The conclusion of Sabina Kane series is jam-packed with fight scenes with Sabina taking on Cain. Sabina (with the help of Team Awesome) goes through a long road and many tests to get to the final battle with Cain. She really shows her badassery on her road to hell.

The Romance: After only having luke warm feelings for the romance part of the series, I am satisfied that Adam ended up being the right man for Sabina. (No the series doesn’t have a love triangle but I thought another male character was hotter for a while.)

The Humor: Jaye Wells continues to bring the dark and twisted humor I’ve come to love. Gighual is the best comic relief character I’ve read in a long time, if not ever.

The End: It was hard saying good-bye to Team Awesome but all good things must end and Wells did it at the right time and in the right fashion. Blue-Blooded Vamp is a great end to the series. We get questions answered. We get shocks. We get laughs. We get tears. And we get closure without it being sugary.

Would I recommend this series? Hell ya botches. For Gighual alone it’s worth the read. If you enjoy Urban Fantasy with a kick ass heroine that learns that being a team player is better than being a cold heart bitch loner and you like dark humor that will sure to scandalize you, then Jaye Well’s Sabina Kane series is for you.

First Thought: What a ride! So many ups and downs. The Heroine: Sabina Kane is an ex-assassin. She’s half mage and half vampire which made her life growing up hell since the two races can’t stand each other. Now she has the pressure of bring the two races plus other supe together because she is The Chosen.   The Love Interest: Sabina is following in her mother’s foot steps and falling in love with a mage. But after 4 books I’m still not feeling the connection between Sabina and said mage, Adam.  Some very valid points are brought up between the two and I can’t help but think that they are good ones for keeping them apart. We’ll have to see where their relationship goes in the […]

  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 […]

1st Rule of Demon Fight Club…Don’t talk about it. 2nd Rule of Demon Fight Club…read this freaking book for the Demon sidekick alone and you won’t be disappointed. That’s right, the lovable Mr. Giggles is back bitches. I absolutely love Giguhl, Sabina’s demon familiar. He’s great for a laugh and we find out that he can hold his own when it comes to a fight. His and Sabina relationship is funny and touching. They have each others back and Sabina learns to let her big boy demon out on his own. Sabina has to stop being a stage mother when Giguhl gets into an underground Demon Fight Club that is ran by The Shade, a vampire from Sabina’s past. Sabina, Adam and Giguhl starts out on a cross-country […]

  Red-Headed Stepchild is a fantastic start to the Sabina Kane series. Jaye Wells does a great job of balancing humor and action in this fast pace urban fantasy novel with a hard-ass heroine that grows a heart by the end of the book. The book almost read like two for me. The 1st half we have a tough as nails heroine that would rather just do her job as an assassin for Domina, the vampire council, than have any down time and friends. In fact in the opening scene we see Sabina kill her friend because her grandmother, a member of the Domina told her to. No real questions asked. Lavinia, Sabina’s grandmother, is a total bitch and has treated Sabina as a second-rate citizen all her […]
