Sabina Kane, Book 5
Synopsis: 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.
Review: I was curious to read this volume and at the same time knowing that it was the last of the series, I preferred to keep it as long as possible (yes I know, it does not change much in the end). I think it’s always interesting to have the end of a saga such as this one and at the same time it’s still pretty sad to say that we will never see the characters again. Well now we know that we have them in some novellas, but it’s still always a little different. So here I am with the fifth book in the Sabina Kane saga. I was curious after the last one and as I wanted to see how our heroine would be able to face Cain after what happened, especially with Maisie. I must say that the fourth volume has messed the life of our vampire.
Sabina therefore goes to Rome with her friends to find Abel, who could help her to destroy Cain. But finding him sounds more complicated than expected and when in addition the God who worked with Sabina asks her to kill a vampire that nobody seems to know about, it does not help her business. I can not say more not to reveal the big surprises of the novel but it has many twists and turns throughout the chapters.
I must say that I was curious to know the real identity of Abel and I think it is impossible to even suspect who he is. But it was great to meet him and see how Sabina behaves with him. Many new characters are introduced here and some old ones return as well. It was lovely to see them all in full force. Sabina has a quest to lead but it’s much more complicated than what she thought at first. We will also discover the demons world and its subtleties. It was interesting to see that this world is more complex than we might think and that the characters are very different. The relationship between Adam and Sabina is also changing significantly, and it is a pleasure to see her so happy.
This novel was a nice conclusion to the series and I think that the fans of the series will not be disappointed. We had a lot of things from beginning to end and we never get bored for a second. I was quite surprised by the direction of the story but at the same time it made sense compared to what we had learned before. It was a very nice volume and I’m still a little sad that it’s the end.
