URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Sabina Kane 3: Green-Eyed Demon - Jaye Wells

Release Date: 03/02/11


The clock is ticking for Sabina Kane. With her sister taken by mysterious captors, the Dark Races on the brink of war and a sinister order manipulating everyone behind the scenes, she's really got her work cut out. Using information provided by an unlikely ally, Sabina and her trusty sidekicks - the sexy mage Adam Lazarus and Giguhl, the 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 before Sabina can save those she cares about, she's got to save herself from the ghosts of her former life. Because the past is haunting her. Literally.


Having loved Jaye’s debut I was a little upset when the second novel didn’t quite hit the same peaks as the original especially when the author left the reader on a real cliff hanger of an ending. All is forgiven with this, the third adventure for Sabina Kane and along with the rest of Team Awesome. It’s beautifully written, the characters magical and above all else the emotional aspects and healings really make this a title to appreciate.

Add to this a great sense of pace, some seriously wicked dialogue and a demon that we can all love and it’s a title that will make many an urban fantasy reader whimper with pleasure. Finally add to this a certain humourous wound being repeated and at some point I think a certain Mischief demon will be bending over and using his back end for impressions which will not only make the reader laugh but hopefully continue to keep the reader chuckling during the darker moments. Seriously good fun for all.

This sounds like another series I might have to jump to.
