very similar supernatural creatures, beasts and societal rules as True Blood - cool with me since I liked that show
I like the story it flows well and has interesting ideas. the main character is also good. She's well rounded and tough. wicked sense of humor and interesting personality. but there is one flaw to her that's so annoying and pervasive that I feel it drags the story down two stars. she is super boy crazy. and yes its as immature as it sounds. her standards are incredibly shallow and while there is no romance line nor a sex line it still affects the story negatively. all her interactions with any main male character revolves around how attracted she is to them or vise versa. and with the Joe guy it's just rediculous. he keeps showing himself to be a shady playboy who is not only sleeping with the bad guys girl but also spying on her but she keeps falling back on how good he looks and how much beast wants to mate with him. it makes me think of a Jr high girl hanging on the drugged up loser with starry eyes and makes me want to slam my head into the nearest solid object.
I would listen to this book again and again. The characters are very entertaining.
Beast was my favorite character.
I have listened to most of the rest of the series. All the dream yellowrock books I have listened to so far are very good as well.
When I first saw this in my list I didn't know if I'd like it. Well I decided to use a credit on it and got the first book. After listening for a little bit I went ahead and got the next two as well :)
The story is very well written and isn't so erotic or corny as other vamp series are. This is a really good series and I'd recommend it to others for sure!!!
And the narrator is very good at making everyone have a voice. You know who's talking before she says who it is because of their voice. I hate having a good book with a horrible speaker, so glad she rocked this series!!
I love this series and I've only read the first book for those of you ladies have been reading Laura K Hamilton's books Jane yellow rocks character reminds me of Anita Blake and I'm so happy Anita Blake in the beginning of her books
This was my first book by Faith Hunter, and I loved it. It kept me guessing, trying to figure out who the rogue vamp could be. Every time I'd get all fired up thinking I knew who it was, my flame was doused with uncertainty. After several failed attempts to figure out the mystery I just gave up and settled in and enjoyed the book. I am now a fan of the Jane Yellowrock series.
I was always a sci-fi fan and nerd as a young person. Currently I read more urban fantasy, now plentiful and popular, than I do true sci-fi.
I enjoyed Skinwalker because of the development of the main character. She is fascinating and has a bit of humor without laugh-out-loud jokes that would not fit the book at all. I was excited to get information about who Jane Yellowrock was even though it happened a little at a time through the book. The narration fit the character including where she came from, and none of the narration distracted me from listening.
The only reason I deducted a star from the story was not necessarily a fault of the book so much as it was a problem for me. I had a hard time keeping up with the plethora of character names. To make it worse, some of them also had nicknames, which, instead of adding to the character, made it harder to remember which character was which. This certainly will not make me drop the series, but it will make me concentrate more next time on securing names to characters in my mind.
Overall, I very much enjoyed this mystery and its resolution.
This is a top favorite series, in fact - probably the favorite of all the series downloaded to date. I should have written this first review much earlier & prior to my first review of this series (which was for book 8). As I've already shared, this is one of the best series written for this genre. The primary character is a strong female lead & someone I'm ever interested in learning more about. Faith Hunter is building what I believe are unique opportunities to fully develop not only her main character, Jane Yellowrock, yet also many of the other characters as her stories progress. Each story leaves me believing it's better than the next and always craving more!
