Blue-Blooded Vamp Draws Curtain on Sabina Kane Series
Jaye Wells knows how to tell a story where the vamps are cool and we all wish we were a part of it. I for one am kinda sorry to see her series starring our favorite red-headed step-child Sabina Kane go. If for nothing else than the covers, I always looked forward to the new installment of the vamp with style who just wouldn’t quit.
But if for some reason you never quite got around to reading them, I highly recommend checking them out. She just came out with the fifth and final book in the series, Blue-Blooded Vamp and so you actually have a chance for an all-out feast of vampire-thrilling adventure by getting all five books and sitting down in a locked room over several days to read them. You know, you could just have them slide the food under the door, and no one would even need to know how much fun you were having.
The one that starts it all. Sabina Kane, half-vampire and half-wizard is someone with a foot in both countries and feels at home in neither. She takes on the profession of assassin, figuring it might be the most logical one for an outcast like her, for mage and vamp society don’t exactly mix. Unfortunately for her, the two sides of her personal coin look like they may be preparing to go to war against each other. She will need to choose sides, and she is not so sure she is ready to.
Sabina is heading to New York City to meet up with the mage side of the family, after surviving her own vampire grandmother’s attempt on her life. Is it any wonder that her relationship with her family is just a tad dysfunctional? She soon finds that the Hecate Council intend to use her as a pawn in the budding war against the vamps. Soon she is tangled up in Mage politics and heading into dangerous territory in New York’s forbidding Black Light District. With her own family out to kill her, she is beginning to wonder who she can trust!
Sabina is fighting ghosts, vamps and goblins of all kinds in the most appropriate city of all, New Orleans. She is there to save her sister, who has been kidnapped by her grandmother. To make matters worse, it looks like the brewing wars between the two dark forces in her life are indeed on the brink of all out war. Just when she thought things couldn’t get worse, she discovers that a dark order of some kind is actually manipulating everything behind the scenes. Who are they and what do they want? And how can Sabina get past the troubles of today if she can’t let go of the past?
Just when it looks like peace may finally descend, with the war averted and Sabina off with her friends to do some healing mentally and physically, a string of murders happen that could destroy the fragile treaty negotiations. Sabina knows that the sadistic nature of the murders points in several very uncomfortable directions, but she must follow where the trail leads, even if it ends in vamps she would rather not see. But the further on she unravels this secret, the worse it appears. Can she even face it down, let alone kill it?
Tracking a murderer through Europe is hard enough. Doing it when he is hunting you just as much as you are hunting him is harder. But when playing hunt with Cain, the father of all vamps, Sabina discovers she may have bitten off more than she can chew. She needs help, and she knows that the one who can defeat Cain is Abel, if the mage is willing to be found. But she isn’t really sure he is in Rome, where he is rumored to live or even who or what he truly is. When the goddess Lilith decides that Sabina must be part of her plans, she begins to wonder if she will even survive this time around. It is the thrilling conclusion to the series in more ways than one, and not one to miss!
