Review Blue Blooded Vamp by Jaye Wells
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.
You know whats really rare in romance, or rather urban fantasy, an author that knows how to end a book in such a way that you get out of the series what you’re looking for, but they don’t cheapen the journey with some light plattitude bandaid lets make everyone happy ending. Its SO RARE that an author gets the last book so right, and Ms. Wells did an amazing job with Blue Blooded Vamp.
Sabina is of course after the man that started it all, who has taken everything she’s ever loved and treasured from her, yet she still has things to lose. Thats one of the things I loved about Ms. Wells writitng of Sabina. She may be obstinate, stubborn, and a kick ass chick but she has GROWN. She has matured, she has realized that even with all of her losses there are still more things that she can lose and although she is focused on revenge it doesn’t blind her to everything else. She’s not willing to lose 7 people to appease her sense of violence, her anger is a tool, instead of a detriment now and its brilliantly done. Its a BRILLIANT piece of writing the way Ms. Wells was able to make Sabina truly grow and mature its fantastic and I loved every second of it.
And as an added bonus even though so much of this series has been about this final battle, there was still story afterwards. We go to see the final battle then see what happens afterwards, how she deals with it, how it affects their world, and we got to get that battle out of the way then say goodbye.
Sad to see her go but happy to say good bye in such an amazingly put together way.
Overall Rating: B+
