“Sooner or later, everyone dies.”
– Blue-Blooded Vamp by Jaye Wells
In Blue-Blooded Vamp, Wells came up with a perfect way to end Sabina Kane’s story arc. This novel was chock full of shocking plot twists, bombshell revelations, and it – fittingly – all came to its climactic ending in Irkalla, the Infernal Lands of the underworld.
And did I mention to plot twists in this book? Absolutely mind-blowing – like the finale of a fireworks show.
Paranormal fantasy gets a bad rap – sometimes deservedly – but Wells’ Sabina Kane saga exemplifies the almost limitless potential of this kind of storyline. Sabina’s journey of self-discovery is action-packed and funny and intimate and bloody and passionate and profoundly moving. This isn’t just some glorified supernatural sex romp – the thematic depth of these novels is nothing short of extraordinary. Wells has constructed a sweeping storyline that utilizes elements from multiple mythologies and fused that together with an urban fantasy attitude to create a series that is palatable to not only paranormal fantasy enthusiasts but also fans of romance, mystery, and even mainstream thrillers.
It’s been a wild ride. I miss the red hair already…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this series will go down as one of the best paranormal fantasy sagas of all time and Sabina Kane will be remembered as one of paranormal fantasy’s most iconic heroines.
Bottom line: If you haven't read the Sabina Kane saga yet, you're missing out on a fantastic series written by one of the most talented young authors in all of genre fiction.
