MINOR SPOILER

My list of favourite UFs consists of only three series. And Jaye Wells’ Sabina Kane series is one of them!!!

Sabina’s narration is one of the few out there in the genre that I don’t find tedious or boring. I loved Sabina in the previous books, but I think her character has grown immensely from the first two books. Sure, she’s still got her quick-fire temper and bitchy moments, but she wouldn’t be Sabina if she lost that fire in her.

When we first met Sabina in book one, she was a cold-hearted bitch. She was devoid of any emotions, which made her the perfect assassin. But by the end of this book, Sabina opens herself up in a way that reveals old wounds and brings hope to a lighter future. So much so that she finally lets Adam, the hot mage into her heart. Finally! I’ve been waiting for this moment since RHSC and I am thrilled to say that there were at least three moments when tears threatened to spill. Wells just knows how to play on my emotions. The fact that Sabina refers to Adam as “the man she loves” shows how much she’s overcome to care for him so much.

Another thing I loved about this book was the change in setting. New Orleans brought so much life and magic to the series. Wells did a great job of taking the surroundings and incorporating it into the storyline. In addition, she added new eccentric characters that really embodied the Big Easy way. Of course, I’m talking about PUSSY WILLOW! I loved her and when she was beaten, rage boiled through my veins. I was so pissed! Needless to say, I loved the secondary characters in this series!

And then there’s Team Awesome aka Sabina, Adam, and Gighul. What a team! I adore this trio! With friendship and teamwork, these guys seriously kick some major ass. I can’t wait to read more of their little adventures!

But there was one thing I felt that was missing from this book, and of course, it was Maisie’s absence. I didn’t expect to love Maze as much as I thought I would in THIB, but I really missed her sweetness in this one.

Green-Eyed Demon was a great book in the Sabina Kane series! With great action, humour and romance, I don’t think I can love this series more than I already do!

Favourite Quote:
"You ever let a demon through your portal before?" he purred to Calyx. The tip of one claw swirled lazy circles in the mossy pond water.
"Um, I don't think so," she said hesitantly.
He winked at the faery. "Trust me, sweet cheeks, you'd remember having a demon in your portal."

Yeah, I read it. It's in the Love Bites The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2 by Trisha Telep. Yummy Slade!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Sorry, no. I dont know if this is out in ebook format since its an anthology.

Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) HELL YEAH! Not gonna lie, the sex scene is hot :)


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Yeah I read Eternity Embraced by Larissa Ione!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Yeah, but this one is not the same as the one as the ebook. She added two more chapters but I asked her about it and she posted it up on her Free reads site with that Wraith short story I told ya about. How nice. :)


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) WOO HOO! See how it all works out in the end!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) It does. Now you get to read about Slade!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) I CANT WAIT FOR THIS BOOK! You said you got it preordered right?


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) DAMN YOU UKers!! LOL! That includes Suzanne!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) I wonder if she'll read it!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Oops. I already did. Thats okay, she probably wont see the msg until later anyways LOL!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) We dont have to wait THAT long!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) LOL. Yeah. You make me said waiting for it now.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Ask her to buy them and send 2 copies our way!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) LOL I know. There's no way out of of waiting!


message 20: by Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) (last edited Feb 03, 2011 02:59PM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Different publishers. They dont always get pick up. And it's different preferences in other countries.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Of course I would know!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Um I dont. Never heard of that one. Sowwy.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Sure! I might not get it anytime soon though. Lots to read before then. I gotta read all the ones I own already! Hope thats ok.

Yeah? I didn't lke Dallon all that much either. Vinter and Jaz were also my faves.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) LMAO! okay!

Um I dont even remember Dallon anymore. Just beer bottles and a pool stick comes up in my mind.

I remember alll of vinter though. That sexy fucker!

Jaz was better than Dallon but not as good at Vinter.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) I really like Lissa's eroticas. Theyre all good so far.

But I read this last one called Anchor and Storm by Kate Poole. it's a historical romance erotica. Has menage in it (dont know if you're into that) but it made me cry.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) There's no M/M though so. They jsut fuck the girl.

No, not really. I've read like...maybe 2 or 3 this year. YOU HAVE!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) That makes us even then :) I read one other Lissa book. Stick Shift


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Guy is like 25 I think and the girl is 30 something


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Yeah, I didnt think so. It was pretty cool.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) These eroticas are usually for a more older audience than us. It's like the ultimate fantasy to land a younger guy! I mean, if did that, it would be illegal! LMAO!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) The younger ones have hotter bods. I like older guys, but I've only dated guys who are the same age as me.

Well, for you it wouldn't be too bad since you're 17. But for me, If I dated someone who as like 15,16 that would be wrong on so many levels. They'd be too innocent!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) FUCK! Saaaaaaaaaaaaaam, did you get this one yet? Remember when I said it was coming out MARCH 1? I was right for Canadians. MOTHER.FUCKER.


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) *sigh* I will have to deal. Please dont torture me too much! LOL!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) MOTHER. FUCK! soooooooooo jealous!

READ TO ME! lol!!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Yeah, that would be a bitch.

Aww, that's so sweet. You dont have to. Just read!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) looking forward to it! Did you start already?


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) LUCKY! I took off Thursday last week to read Dreams of a Dark warrior. And then I got sick on Friday! LOL totally worth it though!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) LOL! It's like a mini weekend in between your week!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) LOL That would be better!

LMFAO! YESSSSSSSSS! Dance to it!


message 42: by Lyndsey (new)

Lyndsey Tsk, tsk. Sam, Sam, Sam. A lady must ALWAYS have her pole handy!


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) LOL! That song is for porn. You need to play your porn star dancing song instead! Unless you make porn on a pole? LOL!


message 44: by Lyndsey (new)

Lyndsey Wow! That was quick... Is yours a "pop-up" or "screw in" pole? Or both?! Ahahahah! Sorry, couldn't help myself. So many jokes when it comes to poles...


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Loved it! Now will you re-enact it for me! Sing it too!


message 46: by Lyndsey (new)

Lyndsey Of course, a pop-up. I should've known.
