Sabine, Sorceress of Illusions: the evil beauty who surrenders her body, but not her heart.
Well well well… What do we have here? The all-time-cool-cold-hearted-demon Rydstrom… not so cold hearted now, are you? I have to say I really enjoyed seeing him freak out. I guess there’s no entertainment better than breaking the patience of such a creature. Or maybe there is… don’t make me go to Cade again, he’s still my favorite.
Now I must say that it’s been a while since I liked both the hero and heroine in the same book. Usually the girls are annoying but Sabine did a great job. She was fun since the beginning, evil, sarcastic, sadistic. Wow, now there’s a hot woman! (in the most platonic way, don’t get me wrong) I usually enjoy fiery dialogues in books and unfortunately we didn’t have much from Rydstrom in this book. Sabine was the one doing a good job. I felt a bit cold towards the book in the beginning, was expecting something more but eventually it made up for the loss. I still can’t give it a full score because, I won’t lie, I didn’t enjoyed it as much as I thought I will. I feel that there was something missing, and I can’t really say what.
We also got a better look at the mysterious Lothaire, and I have to admit I already fell in love with him. I saw that his book will be out in 2012 so long way to go but I’m still hoping we’ll get some more glimpses of the oh-so-evil-and-yet-delicious-evil-vamp-hottie.
A good story filled with hot characters, passion, love and betrayal. A must-read for all you paranormal-romance fans out there!
Now, come here so that Santa can give you guys some gifts:
In an incredulous tone, he said, "You don't know the meaning of virtue!"
"Of course I do-it means your thong must be white." (Sabine)
"Blah, blah, blah. Demon boy, I can't speak that language. Furthermore, I don't want to pollute my brain by learning it. So it's time for you to learn mine. First lesson-I'm Say-been. I'm oft described as byoo-tee-full and mah-jest'ick."
When a group of young females had asked her what one should name her horse, she'd answered, "I like the sound of Fellatio."
When Rydstrom had confronted Sabine about it, she'd said, "Do you know how priceless it was to hear that demoness sigh, 'I love my Fellatio' ? Even gold can't buy moments like that!"
"You two. You can do a cleaning spell."
One slurred, "But Nixie, I'm really pre-hung-over."
Nix's eyes went wide. "Do it, or the photos go live!"
The witch shook her fist to the sky, crying, "Damn you, Valkyrie! Damn you and your digital ways!"
"I can't drive."
"I'm going to teach you," he'd said confidently.
At the end of the lesson, he'd declared her the most aggressive and dangerous driver he'd ever encountered.
Which meant.. . number one! (Sabine)
"You know, do nice shite for her. Buy her things. Really think about what she likes and what makes her happy and make it happen. She'll come around. And if she doesn't, you can cut off your horns for her. Chicks dig that." (Cadeon)
