Sabina Kane is on the hunt. Her prey: Cain, the father of the vampire race and the one who murdered her family and her friends. Unfortunately, Cain is hunting Sabina, too.
The one man who holds the key to defeating Cain is, of course, Abel. A mage with secrets to spare and, hopefully, the power to match it. Unfortunately, for Sabina, he's in Rome and may not want to be found.
Sabina sets out for Italy with her friends, Giguhl and Adam Lazarus, to track down the only man who can get her the revenge she hungers for. But will he help her or oppose her? And just who is Abel, really? Worst of all, when Sabina figures out the goddess Lilith has a plan for her-she realizes this trip is getting deadlier by the minute. As they say: when in Rome-SURVIVE.

Wells brings her Sabina Kane urban fantasy series to a satisfactorily fast-paced conclusion with this fifth installment (after Silver-Tongued Devil). Mage/vampire halfbreed Sabina must face Cain, the father of all vampires, in the aftermath of a series of assassinations. Sabina’s twin sister died at Cain’s hands; now Sabina hopes to be the Chosen who can destroy him. She goes to Rome to seek the assistance of the mysterious mage Abel, from whose imprisonment Cain had escaped. Assisted by comic-relief demon Giguhl; her lover, Adam Lazarus; renegade mage Erron Zorn; and former vampire assassin Alexis Vega, Sabina must juggle high-level vampire politics, the secrets of her difficult family history, and a perilous debt to the god Asclepius while evading Cain and negotiating with the less-than-cooperative Abel. Wells packs in plenty of action and neatly wraps up most of her series’ loose ends, but, as in previous tales, her heavy-handed humor undermines the building emotional tension of Sabina’s dramatic final confrontation with Cain.
