I have loved Faith Hunter's writing since her Seraphs Series(I have signed copies). But the Jane Yellowrock novels have fast become my favorite series of all the authors I read...er well listen to. (I am new to the audible books experience) The story line is unique and inventive and the characters well developed. Khristine Hvams was very easy to listen to and I was easily able to discern what characters were who. I look at all the books being made into movies and think that this series would make an awesome movie. I have met Faith Hunter and she was a very genuine nice person. Keep writing Faith... we need MORE!
Great read, love Yellowrock! But I really would love to here some juicy lovers details in the future! I wasn't really thrilled with the ending ( won't spoil it here).
I already have. Faith Hunter's books are just great and I have listened to all before this one at least 10 times this year, (this one twice already). I like to put on a book that I have already listened to while doing things around the house etc. Khristine Hvam is also very pleasant to listen to.
Oh, I can't give anything away so I'll just say it has to do with Jane and Leo, and Bruiser.
I have just "read" the books before and I have to say that Khristine Hvam makes the story "POP" off the pages. She really brings any book she narrates to life. Khristine Hvam is one of my very favorite narrators. If you look at the reviews I have written, you can see that she has narrated a lot of the books I have written about. I love all the voices she gives them but especially Jane, Beast, Angelina and Bruiser.
YES IT WAS AND YES I DID!
I really don't know how Faith is going to top this one, but I'm sure she will. Every book in the series is so interesting to me. I have always been a lover of all things Cherokee and she doesn't disappoint.I like that she uses the Cherokee language in the books. Vampires are always a favorite and the back story she has set up is totally different from anything I have ever read. Example:how the Mithrins (please forgive if I misspelled that) got started etc. (found in Blood Cross). I also liked that she tied in the coyote earring she got from Joanne Walker (C.E. Murphy's main character from The Walker Papers) that was mentioned in their collaboration, Easy Pickings. Sounds like we may be getting more from them as a team. I am also in love with Eli and liked the introduction of Eli and Alex. So many things could happen there in future stories. I really enjoy Faith Hunter's books and hope that Audible will put to voice her writings under the name Gwen Hunter. As of right now, I just have to READ them.
For me the audio edition is much better than the print version for two reasons...my eyes aren't what they used to be, making it work to read for any length of time. The audio version gives the best emphasis to the plot where it belongs and gives the lead character (Jane) a more dimensional persona.
Where Beast took Jane's clothes to where she'd find them when she shifted back then tried unsuccessfully to rescue the cell phone with Bruiser shouting from it.
Shock and Awe have Jane Yellowrock's name all over them.
Yes, read it...now!
Yes, I love all the accents. They give so much personality to the characters.
There is nothing to compare.
Can't wait for the next Jane Yellowrock.
The writing is perfect.
The characters are enjoyable, entertaining an intriguing.
The performance is perfect.
Can't say enough. I find myself buying the next book before I finish the current book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narrator is so wonderful and this and other books. But I enjoyed this book because I was wondering when the rst of the vampires and other supernatural people in New Orleans would discover who she is. I do wish they'd treat Jane better, though. It really does almost break my heart to see the way Beast and everyone else treats her.
It seems Faith Hunter knows how to keep the reader (listener) on the edge. This is the fifth book in the series and I've enjoyed every one so far. Each a bit different, but getting better.
In some ways "Beast"......but Jane of course. Her inter action with Leo, sometimes is a hoot. .
Khristine Hvam is a wonderful narrator, and gets the southern LA and French quarter accents really good. When you have an excellent narrator, it makes a book that much better. I have read books and then listened to on audible. I usually enjoy the audible versions more
with twists and turns I was not expecting!
The series was beginning to pale for me - this book set it afire again.
I felt that this was a dark story. It seemed that everything fell apart for Jane towards the end, and the ending left me with my mouth hanging open, saying "NO!! This can't be!" I was so grateful that a couple of weeks after listening to this book, the next book in the series came out, and I quickly downloaded it. Thank goodness, things worked themselves out in the next story! lol
Upon listening to the story for the second time, things made more sense, and didn't seem quite so dark. I enjoyed the story greatly the second time, and Khristine just does an awesome job of narration. Her portrayal of Beast is my favorite part of the story. Faith did a great job of weaving an intricate plot.
