Jane, a shapeshifting vampire-hunter-for-hire, crosses paths with a stranger who has arrived in New Orleans, enlisted to hunt vampires who have gone insane - or so he says.

TUFF, INDEPENDENT, SEXY.
It put a good image to shape shifting.
She has created a unique, alternative universe.
She tries hard, but the Beasts voice and Narrative sometimes slows the story down to much.
I like the story line of the series.
This series is outstanding. I have never written in to review a book although I love audiobooks (and especially Audible!) but I just had to for these books. The story, the characters, the location descriptions (almost as if you are actually in New Orleans.) And I can't say enough about Khristine Hvram's narration. She is my new favorite, so please keep her busy. I can't wait for the next Jane Yellowrock book. Way to go Faith Hunter, Khristine, and Audible!!
The first two books in this series were pretty good. The overlay of the panther and Jane Yellowrock, her interactions with the Vampires and witches carried a certain degree of inner consistency and wove a plausible world around her. The "Deep South" element was rather perfunctory compared to the Sookie Stackhouse novels, but forgivable. This novel.. not so much. The elements are a bit too stereotypical, the introduction of a host of new beasties with no particular individual character to them, the predictable mega-fight at the end--all felt a bit stale. I hope that the next book bounces back; if it doesn't I shan't continue the series.
Love books about creatures of all sorts. Bored with explicit sexual verbiage - less is more.
Jane and Ricky Bo scenes where they are a couple in love.
So much going on in this book I needed a map. Still, I enjoyed any interaction with Jane and Ricky Bo, whether sad or glad.
Yes but only in the Yellowrock Series and she is FABULOUS.
Jane searching for Rick after the weres get him and it make me so sad for Jane.
Again, she needs to stop thinking everything is her fault. And how many new species can we introduce in a book - Gi (whatever he really is), grindylow (what the heck is this thing), werecats from Africa? (the name reminded me of SNL's Laser Cats).??
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!
Okay, now instead of ARK-in-new for the name Arceneaux,, she's pronouncing it Are-CHIN-new. Hmmmm.... instead of being from Louisiana, he's now from China or Japan? It's Are-sin-oh. Thank goodness the next in the series takes place in North Carolina.
