Favorite Quote: “It’d be super embarrassing if you got eaten ten steps away from your destiny“
The epic conclusion to the amazing Sabina Kane urban fantasy series. 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.

Blue Blooded Vamp is the conclusion to the wild ride of Sabina Kane-vampire assassin and mage extraordinaire. An addicting noir Urban Fantasy blend of horror and humor. This series has led me on an intoxicating roller coaster ride of infinite proportions. Deception and lies are the sediments this series is based upon and Ms. Wells wields her pen like a fine double edged sword. She cuts and slices her characters down to the bone; allowing no quarter. Yet, from the carnage she rebuilds them and us; allowing for truth and courage to shine through. Throughout this series you will laugh, groan, shudder, cheer, and weep as you follow Sabina through her trials and tribulations. Yet for all the pain Ms. Well’s puts Sabina and the reader through, she never allows Sabina to make herself a martyr. She places Sabina time and time again at odds with her humanity; never letting her forget her monster side. Sabina makes mistakes and bad decisions and she pays for those, but you never get the feeling that she doesn’t learn anything from them. The good and bad balances perfectly and it what made me a convert of this series.
