Review: Silver-Tongued Devil by Jaye Wells

Silver Tongued Devil is the fourth book in the Sabina Kane series by Jaye Wells and an Orbit Fantasy.


Now that the threat of war has passed, Sabina Kane is ready to focus on the future. Her relationship with Adam Lazarus is getting stronger and she's helping her sister, Maisie, overcome the trauma of her captivity in New Orleans. Even Giguhl is managing to stay out of trouble thanks to the arrival of Pussy Willow and his new roller derby team. But as much as Sabina wants to feel hopeful about the future, part of her doesn't believe that peace is possible.

Her suspicions are confirmed when a string of sadistic murders threatens to stall treaty negotiations between the mages and the vampires. Sabina pitches in to find the killer, but her investigation soon leads her down dark paths that have her questioning everyone she thought she could trust. And the closer she gets to the killer, the more Sabina begins to suspect this is one foe she may not be able to kill.

My thoughts:

Sabina is hoping to get on with her life - without all the vampire politics.  But that is easier said than done.  Her sister, Maisie, is suffering post traumatic stress syndrome and refuses to feed.  If that weren’t enough, bodies are turning up - drained - and that could threaten the peace talks between the mages and the vampire’s.

When Sabina is asked to investigate the murders - she reluctantly agrees - but the more strings she pulls - the more her own world seems to unravel...

Silver Tongued Devil is another great installment in a terrific series.  Sabina is one of my favorites.

I give Silver Tongued Devil 4 out of 5 stars.
