I hate seeing a series I enjoy end, even when I know the story arc has reached that point. It’s just hard to say goodbye to characters you’ve grown to love, ya know? Blue Blooded Vamp by Jaye Wells is the series finale for the Sabina Kane series and it was a fun, wild ride.
Sabina Kane is on the hunt. Her prey: Cain, the father of the vampire race and the one who murdered her family and her friends. Unfortunately, Cain is hunting Sabina, too.
The one man who holds the key to defeating Cain is, of course, Abel. A mage with secrets to spare and, hopefully, the power to match it. Unfortunately, for Sabina, he’s in Rome and may not want to be found.
Sabina sets out for Italy with her friends, Giguhl and Adam Lazarus, to track down the only man who can get her the revenge she hungers for. But will he help her or oppose her? And just who is Abel, really? Worst of all, when Sabina figures out the goddess Lilith has a plan for her-she realizes this trip is getting deadlier by the minute. As they say: when in Rome-SURVIVE.
I <3 Sabina. She has been through all kinds of hell (quite literally at times, too) and we’ve seen her grow as a character…especially emotionally. Her growth comes to a nice conclusion in Blue Blooded Vamp. All that she learned over the previous year (the span of the series, time-wise) is seriously tested throughout the course of Blue Blooded Vamp. She has to make some really tough decisions and I’m proud of the ones she made. She is an awesome heroine and while this is an urban fantasy, I’m happy to say, Sabina does get that HEA and it’s well earned and deserved.
This is a really difficult review for me to write, not only because it is the end of the series, but it’s really hard to not give spoilers from the previous 4 books. All the loose ends are tied up and there isn’t a lot of down time in the action. All the questions you have are answered…who is the Chosen, can Cain be killed, is Sabina and Maise’s dad still alive, etc. There are some big revelations in Blue Blooded Vamp, which is to be expected. I am pleased at how the series ended (note you’ll want to read this series in order) and I am definitely looking forward to what Jaye Wells has in store for us next.
