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!!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
The beginning had potential, then quickly bombs with all the over descriptive boringness. The plot itself would have been good but too much is too much. I liked the character at first and how she stood up for herself when she met the madam vampire, she seemed like a badass and I also like how she nicknamed everybody she was quite quirky at first. She then turns into a girly girl with all her shopping, tea drinking, dancing, hair do's and blushing, it felt like a totally different character than who was introduced in the first chapters. What really made me lose my interest was when she turned into Beast and went prowling for what seemed like forever, this was boring and annoying because it went on for what seemed like forever. I could have lived with this if it was only one time, but then the next scene was even more boring with all the tea descriptions and later it was even more boring with her thinking how extraordinary she was because she could dance. Plus she must have a huge neck to hold up her turban style hair with all the things in it that she needs to change forms, which from previous description was a change of clothes along with weapons. When she gets asked out on a date and she says that she will only go to a place that sales beer, but then doesn't drink. What? I also wasn't a fan of Rick, I just didn't like him. I usually like bad boys but this guy just seemed a bit skeevy. I'm not even going to go into character Leo the perv. Also she is supposed to be this badass vampire killer, but to date she has been seriously injured after every vampire she has tried to kill, and without help she would have been screwed. After about two hours I was bored, I did continue to listen and at hour 6 I gave up on it and I won't be continuing on with this series. Narrator has a nice voice and I enjoyed listening to her, but she does mispronounce words randomly and I kept correcting her as the story went by like I would if I was helping a kid read.
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!
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
This is a great book! I love the no apologies style of writing that the author uses. She wrote the story exactly the way she wanted to, and readers can take it or shake it. Love it! The character of Jane was such a great character! So stereotypical, but at the same time, so honest and believable. I loved this book! The plot was so far fetched, and so "out there", but I honestly didn't care. The narrator helped this book a lot as well. She was amazing! To me, the chosen narrator for an audio book is SUPER important, and Ms. Hunter hit the nail on the head with this one! Can't wait for the next in the series!
Yes, I liked the story and the narrator was excellent.
I liked that Jane was her own person. There was no sex which is unusual but you got the message that she liked a couple of the men or at least Beast did. Since they are the same body, I expect things will heat up in next book. She will be working with same issues in same location. Leo is hot but a vampire. George is human though as Is Rick.
Jane Yellowrock was my favorite but Leo,and Rick were tied for second favorite. I liked the way the author described the scents of things, from the river to the coffee.
Vampire hunter rides a Harley.
I liked the story and will be getting the next books.
I was weary at first since some of the reviews made it seem like it may not be my kind of book but MAN O MAN! Loved it! Exciting and awesome! Very Kim Harrison and non sexy Keri Arthur lol
