*cue dramatic music*

Orphaned twin sisters, half vampires and half mages, were separated at birth. One was raised by the vampires, the other by the mages, one treated like a weapon and the other like a princess. They grew up unaware of each other’s existence, but they’ve recently been reunited and forced to fight their mortal enemy… and family. They came out as winners, but the cost is much greater than they ever imagined.
After spending their lives apart, Sabina and Maisie are finally t

Tsk tsk my dear Sabina Kane, what the hell happened to you??

I was excited about this one. Nah, ok, you’re right. I wasn’t THAT excited. Just a little bit. However, I wanted a nice story especially since the previous book was pretty awesome. But this?? 40% boredom, 60% bullsh*t. I ended up skimming most of it.

Yes, this means that the next one won’t even be on my “to-read” shelf.

No, I won’t change my mind.

Yes, owls are extremely cute.

Ok, so in case this is the first review of mine that you have come across let me warn you about something. I am not the most polished writer, and I tend to write more on how I felt during a story versus being able to adequately break down devises and such. When I rate books as five stars it is because I have been affected somehow by the book, or series, and know that I will read it again and again, or even have a hard time moving onto the next on my TBR list.

This is one of those series for me. I

I just have one question, how does Jaye Wells manage to keep me totally engrossed, bewildered and entertained time after time? The woman is a genius. "Silver-Tongued Devil" finds Sabina questioning who she is. After non stop changes in her life including her first true love relationship, she is not sure she recognizes who she is anymore. What is so interesting for me is that Sabina has never been more of herself. Yes, she has changed and she is in love; however, that only makes her stronger not ...more
Silver Tongued Devil starts immediately after the events of Green Eyed Demon. Sabina, Adam, and Gighul are back in New York City. Sabina is still reeling from her previous adventures when some grisly murders are discovered.

There is so much to like about this series. The world created by the author is original: vampires have Biblical origins going back to Cain. There is constant strife in this world, with the different races, vampires, mages, and the fae at odds with each other. Set in New York C

my fave book of the series plotwise, even though where the romance is concerned, Adam has become too much of a sanctimonious ass for me to appreciate. Still, I loved how Sabina came to grow up and accept all of who.she is and who she can become, even though Gighul steals the show once more. Looking forward to the final book to see how it's all going to end.

What can I say.. I've gobbled up the last three books in this series over the last couple of days and have thoroughly the enjoyed the adventure the Author has taken me on!

Sabina's character has 'evolved' from a 'broken, insecure, selfish, childlike being' into a force to be reckoned with.
She now has family and friends she cares for and trusts, and is willing to do anything to protect what she considers 'hers'.

Giguhl is probably my 'all time' favorite Minion/Familiar/Sidekick/Best-friend/Demon..

I am a fan of the Sabina Kane series by Jaye Wells. Sabina is a former vampire assassin who has come to learn that there is more to the world than killing. As a half-vampire, half-mage Sabina struggles with the 2 sides of herself, feeling like a misfit, while at the same time trying to embrace her new life, her new sister, and her new friends. In the 3rd book, Green-Eyed Demon, Sabina and her crew travel to New Orleans to rescue Sabina’s twin sister and stop Sabina’s evil grandmoth

Silver-Tongued Devil, the 4th book in the Sabina Kane series, has alot of important issues for Sabina to resolve. Sabina is really forced to dig down deep and find out who she really is. Is she the so-called Chosen one, or another version of Lilith? Or, is she the dark vampire assassin she was before she realized that her own race betrayed her and why is Cain so obsessed with her?

Her relationship with Adam is severely tested at times because of an earlier

Now now don't get me wrong, I love this series. Sabina Kane is one of my favorite kick-ass chic out there. But why only four stars? Well, as I said earlier it started out slow not much was happening and even Giguhl (my favorite demon minion)

Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

Silver-Tongued Devil by Jaye Wells was good, but not freaking amazing. And if I’m absolutely honest with myself, I’m a little bit disappointed compared to how amazing the previous book was, but hey all the books can’t be perfect!

Silver-Tongued Devil is setting itself up for a new kind of arc that is going to play across the next two books with the same characters. Everyone is kind of chilling after the craziness of the previous book and trying to work out how to move on

My English review

I was quite anxious to get into this book, wondering what would happen again. Indeed, the previous volume was concluding a great story that we had been following since the beginning. But how wrong I was, I was totally blown away by the new Jaye Wells ideas as she allowed us to be taken in a whole new story .

Sabina has now forged a pretty normal life, or what it can be for a former assassin. She moved with Giguhl and Adam while continuing to practice her talen

I DID NOT see that coming... I'm very, very sad Maisie died...and the way she died even more horrible. :-( Orpheus and Tanith though...that even more of a shocker!! I was also not expecting Cain to escape. I can only hope that Sabina has no mercy on him whatsoever when she catches up with him, especially for her sister. I'm looking forward to her kicking his A$$!!

Reading a Sabine Kane novel feels just like seeing old friends again. I absolutely adore the cast in this series and each instalment brings back good memories.

Silver-Tongued Devil is the fourth book in the Sabina Kane series and it picks up after the events of New Orleans in GREEN-EYED DEMON. Maisie, Sabina’s twin sister is still recovering and Adam and Sabina are now a couple in love. Giguhl and Pussy Willow are now BFFs who do everything together and there are even

This review contains spoilers for Red-Headed Stepchild, Mage in Black and Green-Eyed Demon.

Sabina and company have returned from the city of New Orleans after the final showdown with her grandmother. Maisie hasn’t fared well after the nightmarish ordeal and Sabina is having problems dealing with her place in mage society. Various other characters are all having their own little emotional problems. While this in itself might make for a somewhat decent drama

Sabrina has sister issues. Her sister tried to kill her boyfriend, which makes family time uncomfortable to say the least. She wants to fix her broken sister, to have the love she has always dreamed of, and it shows. Her desperation in this book seems endless. Her sister is not dreaming, being the oracle it is required on more than one level. The Dark Races are on the verge of signing a peace treaty and her vision could make or break it. But, can anyone bring her back to who she was?

If I had only one word to describe this book, I would have to EPIC. Okay fair warning folks, I am a huge Jaye Wells fanpoodle.

For the first time in her life things seem to be okay for Sabina. Her relationship with Adam is going great and she is happy. The treaty to unite the dark races is only days away from being signed, when on her way to Slade's vampire club, Sabina comes across a dead human body completely drained of blood. Sabina sees this as vampire business and since she now sees herself

I gave it 3.5 stars

A big part of the book addresses Sabina and Maisie's relationship and Maisie's issues now that she has been rescued from their maternal grandmother. Everyone is back in New York dealing with the Peace negotiations when people come up murdered in the dark races community.

I found that SILVER-TONGUED DEVIL was a lot slower then the previous books but still well paced and there was not a lot of action. There is drama between everyone throughout the book, no one is left unaffected

Alrighty, this book was slower than previous installments up until the end. Man, that Cain is something else.

There was a lot of emotional conflict in this volume. Sabina had a fight with just about everyone. I'm with Giguhl on Pussy Willow needing to get her act together. The Mac and Georgia thing was sad. I wonder if Sabina has that letter she promised to deliver. Just about everyone yelled their lungs out at Sabina at some point. The fights with Adam made me want to cry. Hopefully, this two wi

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

Life should have been much calmer now that Sabina's evil grandmother is finally dead. All the dark races are in peace talks with a treaty to be soon signed. She also has friends to rely on and Adam at her side. Even her magical training is going well. However, things are still very strained with her twin sister as Maisie tumbles further and further down a self-destructive path. Then come the horrific dreams about Cain who keeps reminding her
Kayla Beck
In Silver-Tongued Devil by Jaye Wells, we find our heroine, Sabina Kane, in a bit of a rut. The immediate threat of war is no longer hanging over her head. She’s living happily with her loved ones in an apartment in New York City. Life should be good right? As a former vampire assassin living on bagged blood and afterglow, things are getting a bit stagnant for Sabina, not to mention the guilt she feels about what happened to Maisie in New Orleans. Luckily for her, a murder investigation gives he ...more

So Um, WOW! This book had me on such an emotional roller coaster that I can't even come up with a good coherent first sentence.

I honestly didn't like Adam this go around. Not that I liked Sabina better with anyone else, I just thought he was incredibly petty. Yea I said it. The whole shit that happened with Slade it rears it's ugly head in this book.

Fourth in the Sabina Kane urban fantasy series revolving around a half-vampire, half-mage who suddenly finds herself very wanted. This story is based in New York City.

My Take
There is no lack of melodramatic action in this story, and with a turnover in leadership amongst the vamps, it just gets better?...worse?...I mean, WTF? There's a murder at Slade's club, therefore all the years he's done a great job in NYC suddenly mean nothing? I don't get this logic. Besides, I thought NYC was supposed to
