Review: Silver-Tongued Devil
Silver-Tongued Devil by Jaye Wells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ding Dong the witch is dead! Well, Sabina's evil grandmother is dead but there are no ruby slippers for Sabina to click and take her home. She does have her little mancy, Adam, to flash her back to their apartment together. The problem is, she still doesn't feel at home because she's out of place and doesn't know what to do. She's always had a purpose in her life but now, after her revenge is completed, what is she to do? The dark races are coming together for peace and she still doesn't believe she's the Chosen.
Sabina listlessly goes to magic training twice a week. Her sister Maisie is physically better after being tortured, but emotionally, something is still wrong. It's not going well. While Sabina is flounder, other things are happening which she wants to avoid - vampire politics.
This fourth book was iffy to ready because after the "ultimate" goal is achieved, what more could happen? Did Ms. Wells try to prologue this series unnecessarily? Fortunately, she did not. This 4th book is pretty good as the unresolved questions and loose threads start coming together. Cain is still out and about and he's pissed off. Talk about a stalker ex-lover! He wants Lilith and he doesn't care who gets in the way or who he has to kill.
This book is filled with key characters being offed without a thought. It's Game of Thrones style killing. It all helps to move the plot further yet it was a bit shocking. Several new character are introduced and one of them is Abel. Not the original Abel but one who takes the name to defeat Cain. This unknown mage is totally transparent for the reader. As soon as I learned of him, I knew who he was. He's not revealed in this book but it's pretty obvious. The end of this book sets up for the next and final installment. This book is recommended for Urban Fantasy lovers.
