Green-Eyed Demon Review

Title: Green-Eyed Demon
Author: Jaye Wells
Audiobook Narrator: Cynthia Holloway
Series: Sabina Kane #3
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Assassins, Vampires, Demons, Mages, Nymphs, Faeries

The third installment of the Sabina Kane series picks up the action from The Mage in Black leaves off, with the series heroin half-mage, half-vampire Sabina heading to New Orleans accompanied by her demon familiar, Giguhl, and mage Adam Lazarus. Sabina is desperate to rescue her twin sister Maisie, who has been kidnapped by Lavinia Kane their wicked grandmother and the Alpha of the Dominae vampire group. 

The new location introduces another group of interesting characters – Voodoo priestess, Zenobia, changeling drag queen, Brooks/Pussy Willow, lesbian werewolf bar owner, Mac, and a reclusive rock star Erron Zorn (who happens to be an excommunicated mage). Aside from these interesting people we get to know the newest threat, the Caste of Nod.

We also get to read Sabina's improvement as a mage as he gets to raise a zombie (her Cthonic power is somewhat a form of necromancy magic). Which was very critical during the final battle between Sabina and her grandmother. In the romance depart Adam finally expresses his feelings to Sabina which to the delight of magepire. 

Green-Eyed Demon is the conclusion to the conflict between Sabina and her grandmother which I though was great as we get to resolve all issues in a fitting finale had this series stayed as a trilogy. With the upcoming threats to Sabina Kane and her companions, this series is far from over.
