“One of my favorite series, I was on pins and needles reading this. Ms. Wells does not start us off easy at all. It's fast paced from the very start. Sabina is such a great character and I love the growth that we see in here. She is even called on it from a new friend. I loved the addition of...”see full review » see other reviews »
“Still one of my favorites. I did not like the ending, but the next book release is not to far away so I hope it resolves some issues. Still a must read.”booksandmorebooks wrote this review Monday, July 9, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
Sabina wraps up a number of lose ends in this book, in a most Sabina way. She does a good deal of growing this time around and it's nice to see her settling into her new life. She's really finding a place and starting to accept that she's part of a team and hell, she's almost well rounded,... well, perhaps not that far. We get to see a more of her with Adam and we have progress as well as a lot of tension on that front. We meet some cool new characters and the setting moves to New Orleans which works out nicely. There are still enough things undone that I want to read on, but the ending this time isn't really a cliffhanger. ”
“Sabina finally comes to terms with her feelings for Adam and begins to realize her magical powers. Love the "kick ass" action in this book.”Lori wrote this review Sunday, February 26, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Green-Eyed Demon is the third book in the Sabina Kane series by Jaye Wells and an Orbit Fantasy.
Things to do:
1. Rescue sister.
2. Murder grandmother.
3. Don't upset the voodoo priestess.
The clock is ticking for Sabina Kane. Her sister has been kidnapped by her grandmother, the Dark Races are on the brink of war, and a mysterious order is manipulating everyone behind the scenes.
Working on information provided by an unlikely ally, Sabina and her trusty sidekicks--a sexy mage named Adam Lazarus and Giguhl, a Mischief demon--head to New Orleans to begin the hunt for her sister. Once there, they must contend with belligerent werewolves, magic-wielding vampires and--perhaps most frightening of all--humans.
But as much as Sabina is focused on surviving the present, the past won't be ignored. Before she can save those she cares about most, she must save herself from the ghosts of her past.
Sabina Kane has received a direct order from the Queen, kill Lavinia Kane. That works pretty well for Sabina, she’s wanted to kill her grandmother for some time - but now, more than ever.
Lavinia is holding Sabina’s sister hostage in New Orleans - it’s just a ploy to get Sabina out in the open - Lavinia would like nothing better than to kill both sisters.
Unfortunately, Lavinia isn’t the only problem Sabina has to deal with - the Caste of Nod is also in town - and they are very interested in Sabina.
With time running out, Sabina and her friends race to find her sister and stop a summoning before all hell breaks loose.
I love this series.
I give Green-Eyed Demon 5 out of 5 stars.

“I love Sabrina Kane, she is damaged, she is strong and she wants to better life for those she loves. She just can't seem to be comfortable with the whole 'love' thing. Big bad is coming for her, they have her sister and they want more, her. She fights to save her sister, her hot mage partner Adam and Mr Giggles her demon. The big bad has chosen to go through her friends to get to her. Things get complicated, choices have to be made, hard ones.
I loved the ending !”
“My favourite plot line of the three books so far, the great rescue attempt!
At the end of the last book, after the battle had died down and they we able to count casualties, it became known that Maisie, Sabina's long lost twin sister, had been taken by Lavinia (Sabina's grandmother and ruler of the vampire race) during the fight. Now Sabina will stop at nothing to get her back and to kill Lavinia once and for all. It's way past time for granny to die!
Just thinking about the conditions her sister is being kept in is enough to send Sabina into a killing rage. Maisie, who, unlike Sabina is rather soft hearted, almost naive in nature, is just not mentally equipped to deal with the foul evilness of the vampire side of her family. So even if they manage to rescue her, they cannot be sure the Maisie they get back, will be the same girl that they lost.
Naturally these are tense times for everyone. Luckily, Sabina has sexy Mage Adam Lazerous by her side. His formidable magic abilities as well as just the strength she derives from his confident, calming presence is all that's going to get her through this hunt. She also has Giguhl, aka Mr. Giggles, her demon familiar (and the star of these books if you ask me) as well as some interesting new characters: a human voodoo priestess, a drag queen who goes by the name of Pussy Willow, and a female werewolf.
It's a tough battle they face, As we know from book one, Lavinia and her followers have access to Mage blood which makes them doubly hard to kill. An ancient vampire is one thing, a magic-wielding ancient vampire is so much worse. It's going to be the biggest battle yet and not everyone may come out the other side in one piece.
There were some very sweet scenes with Adam and Sabina in this book. I even had to blink back a few tears at one point. For readers of this series this is one not to miss!”
“I think that the entire series was well done, my only complaint is that sometimes, I feel like Adam's form of speech is too much female and too colloquial to be a 60 year old mage. I seriously can't imagine even a 30 year old male going around and saying "Oh, my god!"
I do like Gighul's sass and Sabina is your average perfectly flawed character out to save the world with that little romantic entanglement in the corner. The elements of your standard urban fantasy.”

“I found this to be more kind of meh reading up until the last few chapters. Hopefully Silver Tongued Devil will be better.”Christina M. wrote this review Monday, September 5, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Number three in the series and Sabina is still being treated as the red headed step child, still making the same type of mistakes from previous books, and still fighting her "destiny". My questions are 1. Why is Sabina not as important as her sister? 2. what happened to her super cool incineration magic discovered in book two? and 3. How does she end up being the bad guy at the end because she gave her sister a chance at revenge? It seems to be she is damned if she does and damned of she does not. Thankfully Adam does not bite the dust at the end!”josieD wrote this review Monday, July 25, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
