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!!
I've loved all Faith Hunter's book, but will not get any more audio versions by Khristine Hvam. Her mangling of the names and places in Louisiana is really jarring.
The Jane Yellowrock books are well written and engaging.
I enjoyed the first couple of books, though not enough to go out an get this one right away. I picked up the short story compendium which is numbered as being after thins book but haven't listened to it yet because I wanted to wait until I got around to getting this one.
I made it about half way through but couldn't take any more of the extended soft-core non-sex sex scenes and Jane's obsession with sex and imagining sex while the plot was non-existent and the story failed to be interesting. If I wanted soft-core porn, I would have bought something like that.
The series is now dead to me and I will be returning this and the next book in the series.
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
I have loved the Jane Yellowrock series so far. Hunter is a great author, and the stories have reached higher heights with every new book! This book puts Jane in a sticky situation in regards to who is her true friends are who may not be, and it is fun to see how she plays it out. Some new characters, and some of the old stand-by's. Khristine Hvam is a truly talented narrator, and perfect for this series! Can't wait for the next on!
Jane is somewhat settling into her life in New Orleans. She has a job that pays well, even though Leo isn't quite himself yet. She has a boyfriend, the sexy Ricky Bo, and things are good between them. And she has a mentor of sorts, Aggie One Feather, helping her learn her Cherokee heritage. But of course things go very wrong and it's up to Jane to put the pieces together and save everyone, if she can.
The Weres have come out on national television showing the change. If that's not big enough news, the Werewolves are in town and accusing Leo of murder. Ricky Bo is deep undercover and it looks like trouble in Paradise, or is it more than that? The vamps are having a power struggle- and Jane is smack dab in the middle of it all.
Without giving too much away, I will say that a lot happens in this book. Jane meets not only werewolves but werepanthers and a couple of other unidentified Supes. There's a murder that escalates the tension between all groups and Evangelina is up to something. Her relationship with Ricky Bo is put to a test and the sexual attraction to Bruiser heats up! Beast is such a Slut, lol. Jane also learns more Vamp/Were history and even a little bit about herself. Not enough though and I hope she takes the advice about finding her cave. In the end, nobody comes out unscathed and Jane has decided it's time to go home. Will she? I don't know because there was a nugget of a cliffhanger with Ricky Bo. I really want to dive into the next book right now!
