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.
Green-Eyed Demon is Book 3 in Jaye Wells’ Sabina Kane Series. I read this book without having previously read :
|Red-Headed Stepchild (Sabina Kane)Book 1
Starting from Book 3, I felt as if I missed a lot of the series back story. With that said, without the restating important parts the author managed to provide me, as a newbie enough back story and character details to follow the book.
So about the book…
Sabina Kane is a half-vampire, half mage former assassin. Along with hot mage Adam and Giguhl her demon familiar, she travels to New Orleans to find her twin sister Maisie who was kidnapped by their vampire Domina Lavinia who also happens to be their grandmother. While in New Orleans they discover secret societies of a more sinister variety. To find her sister in time to save her Sabina must control her hot-headed tendancies, call on old and new allies/friends, and of course, kill her grandmother.
While I wouldn’t recommend this book as a standalone, I enjoyed it anyway. There are some very strong and interesting characters. The story world was unique and cleverly crafted. Jaye Wells is now one of my new favorite authors and I will be reading the previous and future books in this series.
