Just plane good? Faith Hunters writing kept me captured and Jane Yellowrock and Beast hearded me straight to book 2. Finally a female heroine with her priorities in order.

Excellent Supernatural Thriller.
I would compare Skinwalker to the Dresden Files books or the Walker Papers.
She really captured the spirit of Jane Yellowrock and the side characters.
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. Especially the audiobook version.
There are a lot of fantasy books that have a strong female lead but this is the best that I have read. I also like really the Kate Daniels series. The Greywalker books is another series that has some very interesting characters and an imaginative concept.
Read this book and you will not regret it - then you have the rest of the series to look forward to.
I will continue with the series. I liked the complex plot of finding the antagonist. It kept me listening through the average performance.
I really didn't warm up to anyone in particular. Yellowrock is a bit too much...she can do EVERYTHING.
I can not say she is one of my favorites but I liked the book and will continue with the series.
No. But I found I did think about it at various times during my day and looked forward to the evening (when I listen) so I could find out what was going to unfold.
I know this isn't a sparkling endorsement but it was a good listen. Worth the time and price and entertaining. And, I enjoyed a book without steamy sex scenes every other page.
There are entire parts of this I don't care for. The way "beast" is written, the cloying vamp relations...on and on. Also the reader tends to mispronounce words...
Constantly going on and on about hot vamps and how "beast" wanted her to mate.
disappointment moving to annoyance then to anger. I liked the way it opened only to have it crash and burn.
save yourself...unless you're a PNR fan.
This is an interesting addition to the fantasy genre. Jane is something else both in personality and ability. I enjoyed the story, but I didn't *love* it. I did love Jane's character and Hvam's narration enough to listen to the second instalment.
Jane finding out about her beast.
Yes because the story-line was interesting but the reader was brought story to life! She is a wonderful narrator.
A story. I just couldn't listen more the 5 min's at a time.
Performance was fine. Story no.
None that I know of. Then again I could listen very long.
It did help me fall asleep on try.
I enjoyed the idea of an Indian skinwalker working and attracted to vampires
I enjoyed the whole story
Yes, it is lavishly detailed. The characters are vividly drawn and the plot is original and refreshing.
Anita Blake without the fancy (and boring) entourage. Riviting.
Her rendition is just how the characters would express themselves. No easy job when one of them is an animal spirit. Love it!
Yes! It was very difficult to find a spot to stop for the night. I did this one in 3 days but wished to hear it all in one, So much story..so little time.
Recommend unconditionally! .
