Great characters with depth.
Heroine multifaceted and no push over.
Easily identifiable voices, but not exaggerated. Real easy on the ears, even volume so you don't have to keep adjusting the volume.
She can be whatever she wants to be - so watch your back bad guys!
Have already bought the next audiobook in the series and was very happy to see that it is the same reader.
The reading was well done I have to say and the story itself is a well thought out idea but poorly executed. The parts where the author writes in the mind of the "beast" almost border on the absurd.
The writing as the beast really was very lacking and even the character of beast was poorly developed and never explored well.
She performed all the characters quite well and I particularly love the character of Tom.
The sound was not good But the story is great.
All around the hold story
All done great
Made me want to listen to more of the other books to come
Sound needed to be better. Some part of the sound was loud others to low.
Yes. The book is a fun journey into the supernatural. I got this book on sale ($4.95 to start a new series) . . . I will certainly be reading more of the series!
Yes, the story keeps you going.
I really enjoyed Faith Hunter's spin on vampire lore - it gave me a lot to think about. I also loved the dynamic between Jane and "Beast" once it is revealed how "Beast" came to be. Great Job, Faith!!!
Avid reader 5 to 10 books a month. I like urban fantasy and Sci-Fi the most. I do enjoy a bio every now and then.
That is Jane Yellow rocks business slogan. Cool isn't it. Jane hunts evil vampires ( seems like an oxymoron doesn't it) It this reality even the vampires have been regulated. Non law abiding Vampires are hunted down and killed.. That is Jane's job and she is very good at it. There are great characters here with their own sense of morality and Jane carefully plots her way between them often risking her life for a just cause. The interesting part is that sometimes she hunts these rogues down as either a human or a mountain lion. The pace is fast and exciting with tons of sword play, indian legends and motorcycle riding. It is very entertaining!
I am trying to get through this book but each time Jane the main character shifts into an animal she talks like a child. It's driving me nuts.
Get rid of the baby talk.
The narrator is great.
I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.
I really like Jane but I wasn't a huge fan of the book. I didn't hate it, but I am not planning on purchasing book 2.
I love Urban Fantasy, Paranormal romance and dystopian novels. I almost always have either a book in my hands, or an audiobook in my ear!
I loved this book. I love the separation between Jane and Beast, two separate beings in one body, working for a common goal. I really liked getting to know both distinctive personalities. The narrator Khristine Hvam is great as well. And there is even a sample from book 2 at the end, which I am just about to buy!
If you like the Spider (Elemental Assasin) series by Jennifer Estep, the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, or the Kate Daniels series by Illona Andrews you will like this...and if you haven't listened the above listed series they are all incredible as well!!
I really like thrillers. My favorite type of movie or book is one that has a unique perspective instead of a different version of the same story repeated by many different writers throughout the years. Many books are fine for a one-time listen, but to find one that's good enough to listen to again and again is a rare find indeed!!
I have finally found a vampire series that I have really enjoyed listening to!! If you read my profile, you'll know the one thing I love best in any tv show, movie or book is that it's unique and Faith Hunter found that uniqueness and shares it in the wonderful series of books about Jane Yellowrock.
The first audiobook was so good that I immediately ordered all the other ones without even listening to a sample. This is an extremely rare thing for me to do, because I'm very particular about the books I like and especially particular about the ones I choose to keep!!
I had to admit that the reader's accent, especially on some of the male characters, was difficult for me to take. That's why I gave the performance a "4" and not a "5" in my rating of this particular audiobook. Other than that, the performance was really quite good -- especially when reading the narrative, doing the voice of Jane and the voice of Beast!! The storyline captured my imagination almost from the start and never let it go!!
I love the sense of humor that Faith Hunter weaves into the story. Also, as a follower of Jesus, the Christ, I enjoy that she weaves Jane Yellowrock's Christian upbringing into the story along with her Cherokee roots!! She blends them in such a way that no one could possibly be offended, unless that particular individual chooses to do so.
The first book is really the first half of the second book. So if you choose to start with the second book, "Blood Cross," you could do so without having heard the first book, "Skinwalker," but I'd highly advise against it. Please read the first book and then you absolutely must buy the second one!! The two books simply go hand in hand and if you like vampire stories, but don't want a lot of gore and are too old for Bella, Edward and Jacob, I guarantee you'll enjoy this series!! And I don't say that often!!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I have listened to the entire series so far and have enjoyed it very much. I hope there will be many more books to this great series. I will be purchasing them as soon as they come out. :)
