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!!
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!
This whole story has more to do with the love triangle, sex, romance, and seduction. I was hoping for a Mercy Thomson or Racheal Morgan but I am tired of listening to Beast talk. The first two books danced around the idea of a romance supernatural novel but this book jumps right in. Sure there are books more dedicated to romanc, and there are not as many sex scenes in here as others. I am just tired of the love triangle.
Good narration and action packed storyline. Jane's life just keeps getting more and more intersting. Well developed characters and some hot to trot scenes.
I appreciate how Fatih Hunter develops & introduces new characters & the Mercy Blade character is another layer of fascination in the vampire world Faith Hunter is developing. Quite honestly, I cannot think of another series that has captivated as much as this series has. In fact, I cannot imagine why a platform like Amazon or Netflix hasn't done everything they can to secure the rights to these stories & bring them to life. There are not nearly enough strong female characters on film these days & vampire world or no, it's time for a lot more characters like Jane Yellowrock. Thank you Fatih Hunter; keep this up!
