The book in general was very good, but the climax and ending were weak. The final battle was kind of abrupt, and the epilogue was super generalized.
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
'sorry, no spoiler here. You'll have to read or listen to find out!
Leo's grief over his son's death is way out of proportion and is focused on Mercy. Angle Baby, and family are visiting. A good thing, a bad thing as she helps save Big Cat only to be kidnapped later. Here's our heroine's dilemma, how to avoid Leo's desire to kill her while using some of his resources to save her best friend's life and rescue her children.
The pace is fast, the drama high as our favorite cast of characters interacts. Without the bits comic relief I would not have made it through to the end. Oh, there is the ongoing love interest between Rick, the cop, and George, Leo's right hand man.
Yep, the second installment is a worthwhile read with our shape shifting vampire hunter, a witchy best friend and family, Leo and his crew, Rick and the police, AND all the drama created by the BAD guys!
Oh, the narrator...Khristine Hvan...she's marvelous. Each character is unique and not overly done. My nieces are from the Carolinas and they, like Mercy, have a very slight (light) Southern accent. George is from England. While you recognize his country of origin, he is still understandable; even by my mother who is "foreign language accent challenged".
I don't think you have to read her books in order to enjoy them. If I've intrigued you, use one of you Audible.com credits like I did. Then come back and tell me what you think!
Book one for Jane Yellowrock was interesting. This book is threatening to send me down a spiral of obsession with the series.
A bit more romance than similar series like that of 'the dresden files' but not a turn off for you urban fantasy purists out there. 'Beast' is becoming a more interesting character every day. The world of Jane is also one I'm becoming increasingly interested in. Looking forward to my next credit!
Love books about creatures of all sorts. Bored with explicit sexual verbiage - less is more.
The Yellowrock Series is in my top ten for Series. Blood Cross is Book #2 and ranks high as I wasn't sure what the creature was till end.
Jane's interactions with Sabina - wicked scary.
Jane's realization that what she is hunting is way more than a rogue vamp.
No extreme reaction, but see the Bruiser love jones creeping up.
Jane still thinks everything is her fault, gets on my nerves.
Love this writer and character. Secondary characters are not boring or kept in the background. Onto book 3: Merchant Blade!
Great second Skinwalker book. Continues more or less where the first one ended. A more complex story, but very satisfying. The vampire lore part in this book is nothing short of amazing. As in the first, lots of blood and gore, but no graphic sex. Liked the first book? You'll love this one!
The storyline and plot was extremely slow and elementary. The dialogue of the cat or beast inside of Jane was annoying as it spoke in broken English. This beast in a shape shifter never went to battle except to make comments in her subconscious again very disappointing in a science fiction book. Overall there are much better series in this type of storyline.
