Jaye Wells - The mage in black

Sabina Kane is a former assassin and half vampire/half mage. She never fitted in the vampire world and after learning the hard way that her grandmother cannot be trusted, she knows she never fits in that world. So she goes with the mage Adam to travel to New York to finally meet her long lost twin sister at the Hekate Council, where she will go through training to get a hold of her magical half.

But troubles follow her everywhere, because there are a couple attempts on her life and that means someone within the Haven of Mages want Sabina gone or dead. But of course that’s not all the trouble she’s in, her demon familiar Giguhl, decides to join a fight club where the only rule is “No Mercy”.

The Mage in Black by Jaye Wells is the second novel in her Sabina Kane Series and I have to say it’s fabulous. Just like the first novel, it’s full of action, danger and betrayal, a fabulous combination to get a great novel.

Sabina Kane is a strong kick-ass assassin. After the betrayal of her grandmother, the head of the vampire Dominae, she doesn’t trust easily. The only two people she’s close to is Mage Adam, who is she very attracted to and her demon familiar Giguhl. Now she is travelling to meet her twin sister and learn more about the other side of her inheritance.

Sabina grows in her magical abilities, but not everyone is happy about that, because someone inside the Haven is doing everything in their power to stop her. There are several tests waiting for Sabina to complete, to test her loyalty to her sister and the council. But that’s not all, at the fight club she runs into an old lover, someone she banned out of her life long ago. Now she has the attention of two strong men fighting for her attention, but is she capable of choosing one of them.

We definitely saw a different side of Sabina and I have to say I like it. It shows that she is not only the cold hard chick she wants everyone to think she is, but she is also vulnerable and sentimental sometimes.

I cannot say otherwise than that this novel is great and definitely worth to read. I’m really looking forward to the next novel and see what will happen next.
