Description

The epic conclusion to the amazing Sabina Kane urban fantasy series. Sabina Kane is on the hunt. Her prey: Cain, the father of the vampire race and the one who murdered her family and her friends. Unfortunately, Cain is hunting Sabina, too. The one man who holds the key to defeating Cain is, of course, Abel. A mage with secrets to spare and, hopefully, the power to match it. Unfortunately, for Sabina, he’s in Rome and may not want to be found. Sabina sets out for Italy with her friends, Giguhl and Adam Lazarus, to track down the only man who can get her the revenge she hungers for. But will he help her or oppose her? And just who is Abel, really? Worst of all, when Sabina figures out the goddess Lilith has a plan for her-she realizes this trip is getting deadlier by the minute. As they say: when in Rome-SURVIVE.

 

Review

The conclusion to Jaye Wells’ Sabina Kane urban fantasy series; BLUE BLOODED VAMP was in a word; epic. This book was jam packed with complex characters, thrilling action, and startling realizations about Sabina and her heritage. I think just about every character from past books got at least a mention if not a small cameo which was nice as it felt like a kind of final curtain call. What I really enjoyed most about this book was that it constantly moved (we even begin the book on a moving train) towards a huge finale involving an intense confrontation with Cain, the father of vampires.

While I enjoyed the finale and all of the action that led up to it; I felt that the story did grind to a halt every time Asclepius (god of healing) showed up and literally put everyone on pause (save for him and Sabina) to tell Sabina she had to do a favor for him. This favor does link to the main plot but I felt it was unnecessary in an already busy and intense book.

I liked BLUE BLOODED VAMP as the conclusion to this series as it brings every thread and character storyline to a satisfying end. Sabina has really evolved over this series and her happy ending was well earned.

    oh I've just finished the fourth book and I really can't wait to read this one. I'm glad it's a good conclusion. It will be so sad to end it.
