The third book in Jaye Wells’ Sabina Kane series might be my favorite one yet. Flanked by sexy mage, Adam Lazarus, and her demon minion, Giguhl, Sabina heads to New Orleans to rescue her kidnapped sister, kill her evil grandmother and save the world by preventing a full on war between the vampire race and the mage and fae races. No pressure or anything.
I think what I liked best in this book was the growth in Sabina as a character. Up until this point, she was mostly tough, angry and snarky. In Green-Eyed Demon, Sabina learns to tap into the emotion of love. She begins to realize that her days as a lone assassin are over and she is now part of a team. She has close friends, a sister and Adam…
Speaking of Adam, his character also gets a chance to shine. We see how tough and brave he is. For two and a half books, Adam has waited for Sabina to mature into a person capable of forging a romantic relationship beyond just sexual. It was wonderful to see him rewarded for his wait.
As with the other books in this series, the plot is a rollercoaster of action. There are some fun fight scenes, culminating when Sabina finally faces her grandmother.
Green-Eyed Demon is scheduled for release on March 1, 2011, but is available for pre-order through Amazon now.
Overall, I give Green-Eyed Demon…
