As I think back to where this series started, I cannot believe just how much Sabina has grown. Don't get me wrong, she is still the same Sabina at the core, stubborn, obstinate, and one heck of a fighter. But the past few months have really shown her so much that she been able to finally let go of a great deal of her anger to become who she was really meant to be. In fact, she's grown so much that everyone else is finally taking her seriously and giving her the respect she deserves. But, more importantly she has finally started to accept herself, both the good and the bad, and she is so much stronger for it. In addition to her own self-acceptance, she has also learned some very hard lessons, including how to trust others and knowing when to ask and accept help.
Everything in this series to date has been leading up to the final showdown with Cain. I especially enjoyed the pacing of the build up to that final battle and then the aftermath was handled.Read more ›

Jaye Wells delivers in the epic conclusion to the Sabina Kane series. The half-vampire, half-mage kickass heroine readers have come to know as Sabina has her hands full as she tries to hunt down her next prey. This time the man she is after is far more powerful than the last enemy she faced down. The biggest, baddest chick is hellbent on exacting revenge on the man who murdered her friends and family , Cain - the father of the vampire race. Nothing is ever easy for Sabina because it seems that Cain also has his sights set on getting rid of her too.
The only way Sabina and her awesome demon sidekick, Gighul and sexy hexy boy toy, Adam Lazarus can defeat Cain is by finding Abel. However, it seems that locating Abel is a task in of itself. So Sabina is en route to Italy where Rome holds the solution to all her problems. There, she runs into people whom she never expected to encounter.
As the final book in the Sabina Kane series, I was expecting something epic, something that would give readers that one last shebang before we say goodbye to Sabina and the gang. Wells delivers a perfectly paced story with that that refreshing bite of humor that I can never resist. I plowed through this book even though I knew it was the last one. I meant to savor it, but those plans were promptly thrown out the window once I opened this book and read the first line. There's just this ease to which Wells writes. It's effortless, fast-paced and a guaranteed a good time.
Sabina Kane was grown throughout the entire series. She's gone from a being a kickass tough girl with a chip on her shoulder to a daughter, a lover and a friend.Read more ›
In spite of its fantasy/supernatural elements, this series has had an urban grittiness to it while occurring mostly in or around several major American cities, notably Los Angeles, New York and New Orleans. I didn't especially mind when Sabina and 'Team Awesome' were forced to move the action to Rome, but AFAIC everything became a touch too surreal when the final conflict occurred in the dark races' afterworld (Irkalla)--it certainly didn't lack for excitement, but the climax lacked the 'anchoring' to modern-day human life which the rest of the novels have had.
IMHO it was somewhat of a 'deux ex machina,' in terms of the deaths of Vanca, Maisie and (in this book) Tristan (Abel), that Sabina ended up as a demigoddess able to visit Irkalla anytime she wished to, hence not actually being separated from them by death. I also felt that Lilith and Asmodeus were 'humanized' a bit too much, into almost a pedestrian mother and father, at the end of the book--a demoness queen and her demon consort should appear to be more fearsome to deal with, I'd venture.
I've enjoyed this series of novels, but the final wrap-up--in which all of the 'good guy' characters ended up pretty much fulfilled and contented--left me with a syrupy taste which contrasted with the tough-minded, hard-edged rest of the series...
