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.

"Jane gets into a complicated stew involving human and vampire rivalries, the ancient vampire-witch conflict, the New Orleans police, and her need to balance her beast and human natures. What with puzzles, chases (including a climactic one to rescue children), lots of blood, and some explicit sex, count on this to please thriller and dark romance fans alike." (Booklist)
This is one of my favorite authors, series and narrators. I have listened to this series several times and I enjoy it more each time I listen to it. Khristine Hvam does a fantastic job with the narration. I do love the Cherokee that is brought into the story. Hearing the language of The People, just makes the story pop off the pages for me. I do listen while I am reading along, and Khristine pauses where Faith pauses (commas etc.) I think that a lot of times, we miss things when we don't see print. HOWEVER I love my audio books and this series. Jane Yellowrock is a good person as well as a great vamp killer!! And I do love Angie-baby! She will break your heart. I just want to squeeze her but Big Cat would take my head off. These are great stories, lots of background and history (at least for me), and a very interesting take on where vamps started. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
This is another great tale with Jane Yellowrock. The author creates a strong, female character, who also is vulnerable in some ways. There is enough intrique and action to keep you interested. The story is developed well. I enjoy the toughness and sometimes softness of the main character. I look forward to future stories with Jane Yellowrock.
Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I purchased this book because I wanted to continue the story from book 1 and often find myself attached to the characters in a series. Both books were okay listens (I did finish them) but I didn't love them and won't be investing time in listening to the rest of the series. I liked the presence of the witches in this book.
the shipping of the character into beast and the dialogue that insues.
I think that they're very nice elements in this book for worth reading.I would definitely recommend this time friends that enjoy vampire mythology
her southern accents really things quite interesting. Jane Yellowrock it's definitely great voice
NoI one of those nooks.
Retired USN! I enjoy movies, books, traveling and making quilts.
If I had only these two choices then I would say not well spent. The story line is really hard to follow at times, not sure what she is really after.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I have listened to the entire series so far and have enjoyed it very much. I hope there will be many more books to this great series. I will be purchasing them as soon as they come out. :)
Ordered this book because of a review somewhere else, had minimal expectations. Oh dear, it was addicting. I will admit to going to the car and sitting in it so I could find out what happened next when I didn't have a need to go anywhere. And it was over 100° out there, but I still sat in the car to listen. I really wanted to know what happened next. When I finished this one, (book 2), the first thing I did when I got to my destination was order book 3. Good book!
Love to read!
I would listen to it again because it moved along enough that I wouldn't get bored with drawn out scenes. The characters are strong enough to hold my interest and not annoy me.
I really think the character development is done well. Each person is distinctive and interesting.
I really like this series so far and plan on listening to the next books. If you are looking for a strong "romance" book, this does not focus on that, though there are developing relationships.
Fast paced, twists and turns, continuing development of characters.
For one it is a pleasure to listen to her voice, just the right amount of character to make people easy to differentiate but not so much as to make it irritating. And then I had saved this book as a bribe to myself during window washing (which I hate) and that made the whole experience quite pleasurable.
Got the next one before I even started this one. Now onto no 4.
