I was a little reluctant to purchase this book, the review did not appeal to me, however I took the plunge, and loved it. The main character is strong, and I love her sense of humour. Beasts character adds another dimesion which I really enjoyed. I loved this so much, that my next 2 purchases were the next 2 books in the series.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Sadly I bought this book last year, but I wasn't in the mind set to read it at the time.. But now I'm kicking myself for not reading it at the time.. This is a really good book and a good series, just got the 2nd and 3rd, and will get the rest afterwards.
Jane is hired by vampires to kill a crazy vampire who is killing vampires and humans , no one knows who is it and she starts investigating. I kept on thinking that it will be a simple plot nothing wow about it and no twists, but I was wrong, too many interesting twists happen in this book and its ending is good. And during this book and I assume the rest of the series, Jane gets to know more and more about her past and who she is, its always to discover who is the main character when she doesn't know her past that well.
Pick it up, you will like it.
I loved it! I've already downloaded the second book. I read a lot, both ebooks and audiobooks. This is a series I'd looked at before, but kept getting sidetracked. I'm glad I finally cracked down and tried it. Jane Yellowrock is a kick butt heroine, who also is able to shapeshift. I'm desperate to start book two, so I'll just say, if you're a fan on Mercy Thompson, Kitty Norville, or The Dresden Files, this is your next series to read!
I don't like books that spend a lot of time describing the world of the story. For me, this book had too much telling and not enough showing. After the first scene, there was just too much tedium describing the world.
There is definitely a need to describe in detail the process of Jane's change, along with giving detailed descriptions of her weapons,and what they do, etc. But seriously? Is there a need to re-describe in all the details, and all the weapons, and what they do, each time Jane "suits up" for battle? The second and third and fourth time, it got a bit frustrating.
I really, really tried to like this book. I quit, then read some earlier reviews about the "Beast" voice and continued on. This book/story just didn't work for me on pretty much any level. I am certain it's good for many, but, I just couldn't get into it. I listened to the whole book, hard as it was.I actually looked forward to being finished with it. I will not be purchasing the other books in this series.
...but I feel like the execution is lacking. The storytelling and character development is weak. The inflection, timing, etc. seems to be off (compared to how I would have expected it to be read after I heard it). The internal dialog of beast is unconvincing due to the back and forth between what beast apparently knows and can understand and what it can't. I have this book a few hours hoping it might grow on me enough to want to slog my way through the end. It didn't. I must not be the target audience for this book and I didn't realize it until it was too late.
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Getting to know Jane was half the fun of the book, she is different, smart and has a believable personality. A Cherokee descendant that has received a rare paranormal gift that she does not have much background or knowledge of. We find out and learn about her as she does. The story had just the right amount of characters and paranormals to make it exciting but not over the top. New Orleans was a great backdrop for a rouge vampire hunt.
The choppiness of the verbiage while she is in her skinwalker state is a little off putting but did not upset the canter of the story. I think this hit on all four cylinders and I was happy to find this new author.
I didn't realize it but I love mysteries. Science Fiction and Fantasy are a particular favorite though I like travel logs, science essays.
The story was good and you don't get it right away so it remains keeping you interested so that you find out what happens. There are several french or Cajun words that were completely wrong and maybe I'm a snob for being from there but some of these things should be researched or checked. I will read more from this author.
I like a good read with mystery and romance
Yes it was okay for my taste
The back and forth in the story line was dragy for me
But it had a nice storyline
