Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The stakes are higher than ever for mage/vampire Sabina 1 mars 2011
Par melindeeloo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
A severely weakened coalition of mages has formed an alliance with the Fae. But while both parties' agenda is centered on staving off an upcoming war, half blood vampire Sabina's goal is simply to rescue her twin Maisie from the clutches of their vindictive vampire grandmother and to also hopefully take her grandmother out of the picture once and for all.

The hunt for her sister takes Sabina, her cat/demon minion and the luscious mage Adam to atmospheric New Orleans and there is a good amount of action, some great new characters, a touch of voodo, and some moments I found a bit difficult - because in urban fantasy there is no guarantee of a happy ever after,

But series-wise, I was happy that the former assassin actually experiences some real growth both personally and magically. And I thought there was a lot of power to that 'ah ha' moment when the emotionally damaged Sabina finally sees how her grandmother's hatred has shaped her view of herself and Sabina realizes who she wants to be instead - and regrets that she may not live long enough to make the change.

So with some promising changes for Sabina and more developments in the prophesy surrounding her, Green-eyed Demon ended up being my favorite book in the series to date and I am looking forward as Sabina's story continues with Silver-Tongued Devil.

Par 30 Book A Month Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
For those of you who have not read the first two books in the series (The Redheaded Stepchild and The Mage in Black), you really must read them to understand this third installment on the half breed mage/vampire, Sabina Kane - although now that I have read this third book, I wouldn't waste my time. However, to be fair I felt the first book was 5 stars, with the second book a solid four.

Picking up where the last two books left off, Sabina is frantically searching for her twin sister, Maisie, who has been kidnapped and held hostage by her grandmother, Lavinia. Not knowing where Lavinia has taking Maisie sends Sabina and her team searching through New York and then New Orleans. Several new characters are introduced to the series as we see Sabina go from place to place following leads and clues, which eventually does cumulate in a climatic battle between Sabina and Lavinia.

When this series first started, I loved Sabina, and the urban fantasy background of the story. Sabina was a character struggling to find herself and understand her new magic and family background. Since that time, the tone of the series and Sabina has changed dramatically. Sabina became the type of character I neither liked nor respected. She constantly had the wrong motivations, did the wrong things and then endlessly berated herself. Even worse sometimes she KNEW she was wrong before she did it, and did it anyway. The plot felt like an aimless wandering of the author to somehow meet objectives in her mind. As this third book went on, the series became more and more comic - filled with overly deliberate humourous moments, sexual innuendos and repartee to the point that the book went from being an Urban Fantasy to a lightweight paranormal romantic comedy. I loathe those, and when I started this series it was NOT what I signed up for.

Lastly, I really, really struggled to finish this book. Normally when a book captures my interest, I read it within a day and won't stop even if Amazon delivers a long awaited book to the front door. I broke off from this book three separate times to read other authors, before finally finishing it last night and promptly tossing it in the garbage can. I will not be buying anymore books from this author. I'm very sad about that because when the series started, I felt that a new player had definitely entered the Urban fantasy/romance realm.

Par A Book Obsession.. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
At the end of the last book, Sabina's cruel vampire grandmother had kidnapped her twin, Maisie. Sabina, being a natural loner wanted to set out on her own to rescue Maisie, but she quickly learns she isn't in this alone. Her demonic minion Giguhl, and almost her almost lover, Adam wouldn't even think of abandoning her or Maisie now. As they set out to find and rescue Maisie, they form plan after plan that each wind out not working quite the way they imagined, but they will never give up. Meanwhile, the Fae Queen is taking advantage of the Mage's circumstances by establishing dominance over them, and expecting all of the Mages to fall in line like little minions. With everyone seeming to be against them, it's up to the three of them to save Maisie before it is too late. Oh yeah, and serve a nice dish of revenge to her grandmother, as revenge is best served hot!

I was really impressed with the amount of growth Sabina's character did in this book. In the past she was cold and almost uncaring. Of course that was a necessity due to her profession as an assassin. However in this book she really opened herself up and let herself finally care for others. Once she opened the gates, an entire flood of emotions came through, and while it was really hard for her to handle at times, I'm really glad she finally made some real connections. Of course, me being a romance fan, I most enjoyed the connection between her and Adam, but the rest were really great as well. She has finally learned that while caring for others can make you vulnerable, the amount of strength gained is tenfold over any vulnerability.

Sabina has always had a problem with authority, but the Fae Queen may have just taken one step too far when she drops Maisie's safety from priority. It is never wise to tick off an accomplished assassin, but luckily for the Queen, Sabina's attention was already focused on finding Maisie and revenge against her grandmother. Since Sabina's character has grown so much, I don't think she would take immediate action against the queen, but I know she will never forget the callous attitude the queen had towards Maisie's life. While Sabina has matured from her "shoot now ask questions later attitude," I think she is actually becoming even more dangerous. When you take into account her massive experience in assassinations, and add in her Mage side's Chthonic powers, combined with a level head, she will be one unstoppable force. I have a feeling that her Chthonic powers will play a large role in future books as this is what makes her both unique and desirable to both sides. The boundaries of these powers are unknown at this point, but they could potentially be almost limitless as she continues to fulfill her destiny.

This book opened up a whole new world of both possibilities and new dangers. There were several unexpected twists and turns that makes me wonder just what is in store for Sabina in the future. I'm very interested to see if she continues on this new path of level-headedness, or if she reverts back to her old self. Somehow I don't think she will revert now that she has the support she needs, but only time will tell. This series has only gotten better with each book, and if the trend continues, the next one promises to be one heck of a book. I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. Definitely a must read!

Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

Things to do:
1. Rescue sister.
2. Murder grandmother.
3. Don't upset the voodoo priestess.

The clock is ticking for Sabina Kane. Her sister has been kidnapped by her grandmother, the Dark Races are on the brink of war, and a mysterious order is manipulating everyone behind the scenes.

Working on information provided by an unlikely ally, Sabina and her trusty sidekicks--a sexy mage named Adam Lazarus and Giguhl, a 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 as much as Sabina is focused on surviving the present, the past won't be ignored. Before she can save those she cares about most, she must save herself from the ghosts of her past.

Book three of the Sabina Kane series took off right after book two, Mage in Black ends. Half Vampire/Half Mage Sabina, her minion and all around best friend and personal assistant Giguhl, and Adam the Mage take off in search of Sabina's twin sister Maisie who has been kidnapped by their evil Grandmother, the head of the Vampires.

Before I go any further I have to say, one thing I think is really clever about this series is how Welles went for a switch up on the evil villain. We've all read books where the father is evil, a few where the mother was, but an Evil grandmother? That is such a great twist. Nobody thinks of Nanna as being evil. Of course Sabina's Grandmother isn't like anybody's Nanna. She is a power mad, vicious uber villainess. She and Dr. Evil could go on a date.

Sabina and crew take on New Orleans in an attempt to find Maisie, and in doing so team up with or bump up against some great new characters who add all kinds of fun to the mix. They meet a voodoo priestess, a Fairy who is a transvestite and performs at a drag club, werewolves, and a rock band of sexual deviants who also happen to be up to their guitar straps in magical abilities. The problem is, somebody is a traitor and they have to figure out who is trying to kill them, and who they can trust while trying to save Maisie.

I enjoyed this book so much more then Mage in Black. I think one reason Green Eyed Demon worked more for me was there was more team action, less of Sabina going it alone and in her thoughts to much. Sabina is lightening up and not being as self destructive. She still beats herself up internally, is still impulsive and a bit abrasive but she's making better decisions and more of a team player in this book. She is also surrounded by such a great cast of characters it lightened all the drama up and Welles can write some fabulous snark. She had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. More Giguhl and more Adam are a very good thing, and few writers in Urban Fantasy can write action as vividly as Welles can.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Green Eyed Demon 1 août 2012
Par Vanessa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This is a series that must be read in order and cannot be read as a stand-alone. Green Eyed Demon starts at the very beginning with very fast paced action and holds a steady pace until the nail biting end. There is a very climatic fight at the end of the book. We have quite a few new characters and beings, also many of the mages from book two carry over, while several characters from the first book drop by to wreak havoc on Sabina's life. One of the characters from Red-Headed Stepchild that makes an appearance is so out of left field I am still wondering how it was pulled off and it made complete sense. A new big bad evil is also introduced

Sabina's quest to find her twin sister takes her, Giguhl and Adam to New Orleans. They acquire the tip from the being that they kidnap in the fight at the beginning of the book. Rhea has arranged for them to stay at her friend's home. This friend happens to be a voodoo priestess who resides with a drag queen. There is hilarity from the moment the drag queen is introduced. The voodoo priestess and Sabina get into a mess of trouble in cemetery one night. This installment in the series is going to answer a lot of questions. Before the majority of the questions from the previous books are answered several new problems and conflicts will arise to give you all new questions.

I love how Sabina's character is evolving. Her attitude is changing. Sabina is taking Oprah like advice from Giguhl and getting to know her emotions. I love Giguhl. He is dishing out advice that one can only imagine came from Dr. Phil's mouth. This does not take away from the tough kick ass heroine that drives this series. It actually makes her more likable. She is still tough and snarky, yet she is beginning to trust the people that have come into her life.
