Faith Hunter made some good decisions with this book. A fresh feel to the story, not just a rehash of old characters and their abilities. Good pacing and lots of action. That's the good part.
But what's up with Khristine Hvam's narration? I usually like her a lot. But here she seems to have lost her ability to pronounce the letter g at the end of words. I guess she's going for a southern (?) accent. But please - with all the huntin', fightin', throwin' and killin' going on, she sounds more and more like a hick. I went back and listened to the first two books in this series, and there she (Yellowrock) sounds quite normal. Weird!
An already good series is starting to really get its claws into me. It is becoming a bit more of a romance than I'd prefer but she kicks more tail than she chases so I'm still on board. Good interplay between characters
Jane! Non-stop warrior woman.
The scene with the wild boar was both funny and gross.
The forced feeding scene.....sent shivers of intense unease down my spine.
Excellent storyline. Non-stop action. Relationship problems. I love beast! I would like to punch Leo in the nose!
The series keeps getting better as Jane & Beast come into their own. Already a strong heroine Jane reveals even more strengths and history. It is the best book yet in the Jane Yellowrock series and can be read alone without the background books. But, for maximum enjoyment consider reading the entire series in order to watch Jane's character grow. You will want to anyway, after reading this story.
sounded like a bridge to new story. still, I am hooked on the characters. but if Leo gets any more 2 d I'll quit. he's the pin around which yellow rock revolves yet he is flat as a character. disappointed. but will continue
I can't stop. Audiobooks are the diversion and comfort when I am alone, the excitement I don't have the time for, and scratch for that itch
I am not sure why I enjoyed this as much or more than any of the others, but I felt invested and anxious about the events as the unfolded. I enjoyed it all, and it didn't seem tired or predictable like some series become at this point. Can't wait for the next!
