    "Haunted by nightmares of a black dog, sick to death of my mind-numbing career and heart-numbing fiancé, I impulsively walked out of my life - and fell into Faerie. Terrified, fascinated, I discover I possess a power I can't control: my wishes come true. After an all-too-real attack by the animal from my dreams, I wake to find myself the captive of the seductive and ruthless fae lord Rogue. In return for my rescue, he demands an extravagant price - my firstborn child, which he intends to sire himself.…"

    What would have made Rogue's Pawn better?

    The opening line of the summery is definitely right on, This is no Fairy Tale. In fact a good portion of the first half of the book was depressing to have to witness.

    It took a while for the story to take off. The beginning really didn't give any clues as to where the story might go or the whole point of what was happening. When Jennifer finally was sent into faery it still seemed to take a while to get the point of things but the scenery was quite nice. There are some things that I wish would have been explained more like why Jennifer was now Gwynn (besides just saying that was what Rogue picked), and why she is pretty much a slave but still treated as royalty by most people (What gives her, her status exactly) Maybe I just missed it?. There is a ton of things happening in the story but the pace was all out of whack for the most part. There is a lot of world building and I did not enjoy Jeffe Kennedy's idea of Faerie. I felt the story was picking off, then crashed back down with the plot every where. I will not be buying the 2nd book, since this was a waste of my money.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffe Kennedy again?

    Not sure, I was very disappointed. I am a regular reader and listener of audio, and this was a waste of my credit.


    What about Sasha Dunbrooke???s performance did you like?

    The reader was great. I was able to visualize the characters with her tone, emotionals and pains.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no

    I love the characters build up. Faith Hunter has provided a great background and each book brings a clearer understanding of the Vamps, weres, witches and others yet to be discovered. Jane Yellowrock's character brings a new light to a strong Dominate female. Love this series!

    Jane Yellowrock is back on the prowl against the children of the night. The vampire council has hired skinwalker Yellowrock to hunt and kill one of their own who has broken sacred ancient rules - but Jane quickly realizes that in a community that is thousands of years old, loyalties run deep.

    Love this writer and character. Secondary characters are not boring or kept in the background. Onto book 3: Merchant Blade!

    Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    Faith Hinter and her character Jane Yellowrock are both new to me. Saw another author mentioned book 9 in the series on Facebook. Decided to take a chance on the author and character. I was not disappointed, love the strength and different direct of the vamp myths. Very much appreciate the Cherokee back history/story. I have also started book 2 in the series!

    Alex has always feared two things: Losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods - and Alex herself - to bring her back. The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex's power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex's connection to Seth isn't the only problem.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book, First the author is a great story teller, with true life characters, second, the series is one that keeps you sucked in until the end; third, the narrator is one of the great ones, who brings to life all of the characters in the novel, and the feeling of keeping you in suspense until the end makes this a great book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anna was my favorite, her character could have been someone I knew


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    She is one of my favorite Performer


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did, and it made me laugh and very sad. Did not cry, but the sad feelings stayed for some time.


    Any additional comments?

    Just completed Speak of the Devil, very deep breath regarding the last chapter. I felt very bad and upset regarding Anna's demise. Great book, with a lot of unanswered Q/A. Well built suspense, just wanting for it all to fall as expected for everyone. Great novel, with Mystery, romance, huge disappointment (not about the novel, but regards to a character)

    Weaving a vibrant tapestry of fact and fiction, Into the Wilderness sweeps us into another time and place...and into the heart of a forbidden, incandescent affair between a spinster Englishwoman and an American frontiersman. Here is an epic of romance and history that will captivate readers from the very first page.

    Nancy says: "GREAT READ!"
    "I have a problem.."
    Overall

    My problem is that I start books in the middle. I started her series with the 3rd book. I was hooked from then on. I love the fact that she mentions Claire & Jamie (from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon) in her book. I was impressed with all of the Characters. I still have to listen to Dawn in the distance, even though I've listened to all of the other books (told you I have a problem). I hate that the series ended but what a classy way to go. I cried through the ending of the last book. I guess that is the reason I haven't listened to the 2nd book. But I will not provide any spoilers. Let me say with great assurance, If you liked Diana's Outlander series (I met her by the way & she signed my book from Claire, Jamie & Diana w/love. I love her) you will love these books. Please start from the beginning though. Great read. Kikienergy.
