Review: Green-Eyed Demons - Jaye Wells
Using information provided by an unlikely ally, Sabina and her trusty sidekicks - the sexy mage Adam Lazarus and Giguhl, the 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 before Sabina can save those she cares about, she's got to save herself from the ghosts of her former life. Because the past is haunting her. Literally.

The stakes have never been higher for Sabina, not only is her grandmother trying to start a war amongst all the Dark Races that could destroy half the world's population but she has also taken Sabina's twin sister as a hostage. Having seen first hand exactly what Lavinia is capable of Sabina knows that she has a limited time to save Maisie's life, she may have only just met her twin but Sabina wants the chance to get to know her properly and she will do whatever it takes to rescue her.
While I enjoyed the first two books in this series I feel like Green-Eyed Demon really sees things step up a gear. We get more action, more romance, the introduction of some fab new characters and a fun new setting as Sabina and friends visit New Orleans in search of Maisie. Sabina takes a long hard look at herself in this book and it made her character so much easier to relate to, she has always been a loner (with good reason!) but she is starting to realise that she isn't quite as heartless as she has always pretended to be and that as a team her, Adam and Gighul are pretty much unstoppable. She makes a slip up towards the end but I'm going to blame that on temporary insanity and hope that she's finally learnt her lesson once and for all.
I love the development in Sabina and Adam's relationship, I like that he's supportive of her and understands where she is coming from but that he doesn't let her walk all over him. He tells her in no uncertain terms that he cares and wants to be with her but that he's not going to put up with her dithering indefinitely so she'd better pull her finger out. Gighul is one of the stars of the show as always, his snark always puts a smile on his face, but he has some competition in this book in the form of a fae transvestite, a voodoo priestess and a very angry werewolf. I hope we're going to see more of all the new characters introduced here because they all had something to add to the story.
This series has definitely captured my interest and I'm looking forward to reading the last few stories to find out how everything turns out for Sabina.
