Jaye Wells, creator of Sabina Kane has my thanks. The Sabina Kane novels are perfect escapes when you don’t want anything to in-depth and need a laugh. Giguhl is one of my most favorite characters, as well as PW, a.k.a. Pussy Willow – transvestite extraordinaire. Giguhl’s growth as a character and as a person while still keeping his “mischief demon” status is exceptionally well done!
I was very surprised to find myself getting into these novels because the vampire system for this world makes them, vampires, very human . At the same time, they are also very dangerous and somehow terrifying in their humanity and their human flaws. When they have the best of humanity they are like Sabina and her twin sister Maisie. At their worst, the vampires are, much to my surprise, truly frightening.
The only problem I had with this novel was the editing, believe it or not. The editing lacked. There were typographical errors, grammatical errors, and once, in the edition I read on Nook, an entire page was re-printed. At first I thought this repeated page was just the Nook doing something funny. After going back and forth with pages, the pages numbers continued correctly – there was just a repeated page. However, the editorial problems did not stop me from devouring the book and getting the next volume in the series, Silver-Tongued Devil, from the library.
Looking through the Barnes and Noble website, I discovered more Sabina Kane novellas and a couple of Nook books. They are already on my to-read list.
The action in this third novel was fast paced; reasonable and logical; and, most of all, the characters grew, changed, and developed into characters I wouldn’t mind knowing, especially Sabina’s love interest, the mage Adam. Who would not fall in love with a perfectly muscled, loving, tender man like that (sometimes I believe I have lucked up and married his twin, except for the magic part, of course)?
My best friend has the book for me at her house so, before I can read the next Sabina Kane novel I need to finish reading the novel I borrowed from Kindle. I suspect this current read will be a quick one. It, too, is action packed, but in a different way.
