For the first time - in one Audible-exclusive collection - it's 13 stories of Jane Yellowrock, the shape-shifting skinwalker and vampire hunter for hire whose business card reads, "Have Stakes - Will Travel". Jane carries inside her the soul of her Beast, the mountain lion's soul which merged with hers when she accidently performed black magic as a child. Now, she and her Beast stalk the dark streets of New Orleans, bringing rogue vampires true death.
In Cat o' Nine Tales, you'll discover how Jane turned into a big cat for the first time; how she and Molly became friends; how Rick LaFleur got his tattoos. You'll go along on some of Jane's early vamp hunts. You'll even hear two short tales through Bruiser's eyes.
Once you experience these stories set in the fantastic world of this New York Times best-selling series, you'll surely agree with Kim Harrison that Jane Yellowrock is "smart, sexy and ruthless".
The stories included in Cat o' Nine Tales are:
"WeSa and the Lumber King"
"The Early Years"
"Signatures of the Dead"
"Blood, Fangs and Going Furry"
"Cajun With Fangs"
"Beneath a Bloody Moon"

Cat o' Nine Tales, is a delightful mix of previously published favorite short stories about Jane Yellowrock, many through the eyes of her friends and adversaries, and two new novellas wading into adventures connected with her weir-tainted love interest and his extended family.
For die-hard Jane Yellowrock readers who've read everything in print they could find, the new stories included in this collection will absolutely titillate, as they divulge more information about Rick LaFleur, and introduce a whole new group of characters to the Yellowrock saga with adventure to spare!
Faith Hunter continues to showcase her mastery of urban fantasy short story thrillers in this excellent collection, and I highly recommend the read.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
I almost wish I'd been able to read these before starting the series..this Hunter/Hvam compilation of 9 short stories is filled with excellent glimpses into the pasts of Jane, Ricky-bo, Molly and Jane's growing friendship as well as being super stand alone stories.
I very much enjoyed learning how/why Rick got his tats-a scary story in in it's self. Jane's intro as beast to Angie-baby as well as 7 other stories.
If you've enjoyed the series but dislike short stories I encourage you to buy this. Hvam does her usual fantastic voice narration with sympathy and drama.
Enjoy! I sure did!
Nope wish there were more shorts to listen too. Some from Eli and Alex maybe. Bethany and Sloane.
I like multiple short stories books. Witchwold by Andrea Norton had a ton of good ones.
Southern flair character to the characters.
Want to eat steak and Benin balls filled with pork and rice, want to visit New Orleans/ Louisiana.
Great series author and narrator :) :)
1. WeSa an the Lumber King

She has a pleasant. voice
Audible should list the story titles in the book description.
This book is comprised of Short Stories from the world of the Jane Yellowrock series. These stories are written from the perspective of the characters telling the story, which gives us insight into their characters that you just can't get from Jane's point of view.
There are 11 stories, which have been published previously in various places and 2 new novellas. Not being a fan of the Anthology books that are published with works of various authors, I had missed most of these stories.
I am SO glad that I purchased this book. The stories are fun, adventurous, exciting and leave you feeling that you know all the people in the series a little better, and have a better understanding of who they are, and why they act the way they do.
Love the horror genre but read all kinds of stuff! I'm 40 something, a wife, mom and Project Manager for a large Construction Company.
I have only purchased the audio version but I cannot imagine not having Kristine Hvam's voice in my head, she is terrific.
This series reminds me of the Sookie Stackhouse-True Blood series because of the diverse characters and crazy plot twists, plus both are set in Lousiana and both have vampires.
I loved to hear how about Bruiser see's Jane and I also liked to hear about what happened in the mine, since that was how the first book started.
I did find myself laughing out loud at times.
At first the "Beast" voice annoyed me and seemed silly. I got used to it quickly and ended up liking it. There are some things that "she" says that do not make sense, she describes some things clearly and some as a "cat' would. For example she might say "the hard black shiny surface that trucks drive on", um ok, you don't know what a ROAD is but you know what a TRUCK is? I just had to overlook those kinds of details.
This is a book of Short stories about Jane Yellowrock and those characters you've learned to love and hate over the series. I've read (listened to every one so far) I love the narrator and the stories. I love the history and lots of truth about how the Europeans destroyed the land of the native Americans
This again I mention is a book of Short Stories by Faith Hunter. When you have over 18 stories you're not going to LOVE every one, but I found something to like about every one. Also Khristine Hvams narration really does it for me in this series. From Jane to Beast she is great.
I've only heard her narrate this series and I'm not complaining.
The fact that it was short stories make it easy to listen for an hour or two and take a break. When it's a whole 12 hour novel........I usually wish I had the day off.
This series seems to get better. I haven't gotten book 7 yet since I'm still listening to this, but I've never been disappointed. Keep up the good work Faith and Khristine.
The last couple stories were filled with great action.
It's a mixture of short stories so it isn't uniform but I expected that. Generally, the stories at the beginning were filled with Jane's backstory. The next few stories were actually excerpts from other novels in the series. I personally found that annoying since I don't want to pay for stories twice. However, the last two stories were related and worthwhile.
Yes, but since it's a collection of short stories, this would of been a nice book to read in portions.
Uneven, but OK.
She reads with a pleasant voice and just enough character to differentiate but not irritate.
I seem to enjoy Faith Hunters novels much more than the short stories. And BTW, why should Jane choose between a dimwit who throws himself on all women and someone who betrays her? She deserves much much better than that.
Yes, just to relive the stories especially the new ones.
I liked getting to know all the characters a little better. I liked hearing in Rick and Bruisers voices.
She is always great, when she does a male speaker you don't think " oh there's a female trying to sound male" you just hear the character.
With all the story stories it wouldn't make a good movie.
Can't wait for Black Arts.
"Backstory and novellas that bridge the series"
I love Jane Yellowrock books! These are on my auto buy and we run them in the car for journeys. Cat o' nine tales are novellas which start way back before Jane walked out of the forest and was taken in by the childrens home.
You get to know how Ricky-bo got his tats, what Bruiser really thought when he first met her and that dance. They bridge the gaps between the books that you didn't know existed.
"Lots of Background"
I will especially selected stories. It's a book you can dip in to at any time. Each short story is a complete entity and suitable for journeys or waiting rooms.
My favourite story is Dance Master - really loved it.
So well written as always - a must for Yellowrock fans
