In the end I liked it but at first I was a little disappointed with the story: it takes a while to really get going and, from the premise, I was expecting a fastest pace but maybe it's due to the author's intention to gives more background in Sabina's past in light of more action-centered future realeses (this book is part of a trilogy). However, as I said before, after the first 10 chapters (31 in total) I really started to appreciate the story and in the latest ones I forgot pretty much every complains I had about the book: the plot takes some very interesting turns and the sneak peek of the next book (The Mage in Black) it's very catchy!

***SPOILER ALERT***
I think the average mark I assigned to the book it's in great part caused by my frustration toward Sabina's blind loyalty to the Dominae...i really don't get how she could have been so stubborn in her position when many thinghs should have made her (at least) question her grandmother's motives. Many times she comes close to the truth only to keep pretending nothing ever happened putting a black cloth in front of her eyes...for a such strong character it was quite insulting!! ( )

Can’t get into this book so I’m shelving it for later

Sabina is a half-breed. Half-vampire and half-mage she was raised by her Grandmother, the vampire leader, and trained to be an assassin. This Grandmother isn't a loving, cookie-baking Gramma, she's an evil, abusive Gramma. But Sabina is desperate for her love and approval and will do anything to get it.

Don't think this is a Very Serious book, however. When the demon Gighul is sent after her things to wrong and weird and he ends up trapped in the body of a cat she then names Mr. Giggles.

I'm not sure about this book. I liked it well-enough but it was lacking something. ( )

This is the first book in the Sabina Kane series; there are five books in this series. This was okay, it was a pretty typical vampire urban fantasy. The dialogue was kind of awkward throughout and there wasn’t a lot of description throughout the book. I didn’t really engage with any of the characters either. Previous to reading this book I had read Wells’ “Dirty Magic” and didn’t really enjoy that book either.

I listened to this on audiobook and the narration was okay but not great. The narrator was pretty stiff sounding and didn’t do a very good job conveying excitement and emotion. She did the different character voices fine, but her stiffness made it hard to engage in the story.

I found a lot of the actions the characters took and the plot elements to be silly and contrived. I didn’t really enjoy the world or the characters presented here.

The writing was a bit stiff and awkward, although I think the narration contributed to that some as well. Considering I didn’t like the first book in Wells’ other series either “Dirty Magic”, I just don’t seem to like her writing style.

The plot is a fairly typical blend of vampires, mages, and fae. There really wasn’t anything all that creative or interesting here.

Overall this was an okay book but not great. It’s a pretty typical UF read and makes for a quick read. I think there’s much better UF out there and won’t be continuing the series. ( )
