Publisher's Summary

The vampires of Asheville, North Carolina, want to establish their own clan, but since they owe loyalty to the Master Vampire of New Orleans, they must work out the terms with him. To come up with an equitable solution, he sends an envoy with the best bodyguard blood money can buy: skinwalker Jane Yellowrock.

But when a group of local campers are attacked by something fanged, Jane goes from escort to investigator. Is it a rogue-vampire, shapechanger, or witch? Or something else magical? Unless she wants to face a very angry master vampire, she will have to work overtime to find the killer. It's a good thing she's worth every penny.

    "WOW !"

    Another great Jane Yellowrock story. I have never been disappointed by Faith Hunter and this edition is just the same. Jane continues to get herself into great bouts of trouble, the story however is getting much more complicated as the relationship between Jane and the vampires develops. Now the witches are even more involved with demons and angels as well. Jane's elusive relationship with Ricky remains so but it seems more likely than ever that they will end up together, or will they? Bruiser is letting his intentions be known too, so who will Jane choose? In this story, Jane and Beasts relationship becomes strained to almost the breaking point.
    Read it.....you will not be disappointed.

    Love books about creatures of all sorts. Bored with explicit sexual verbiage - less is more.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Cut down all the moving sub-stories. Could have been 3 books.

    Definitely. Her writing style is detailed and well researched.


    Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Evan


    Do you think Raven Cursed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Too much going on, i needed a list.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to see characters drawn out.

    "WONDERFUL story HORRIBLE reader"

    The story about Jane Yellowrock is fantastic. Book Noir with excellent reference and an adept creation of the Yellowrock universe. Unfortunately, the reader's fake NC accent that fluctuates from Southern Georgia to East TX accent and another less distinctive southern accent Her attempts at a Cajun accent are more than grating. When cerulean is pronounced sir roooooo lian, jojoba becomes Joe Joe Ba (accent on the last syllable) and heraldic is pronounced hair all dick (again, accent is on the final syllable) among many mispronunciations that mar the enjoyment of the book, it makes one wonder if the reader is intentionally mispronouncing the words or if she simply is unfamiliar with them. The reader needs to know what the words mean and their pronunciation prior to putting the words on audio. The editing is sloppy and is obvious when she takes a break and returns with the volume changes as well as vocal inconsistencies. I love the series, hate the performance.

    "Not my favorite story."

    Raven cursed isn't my favorite Jane Yellowrock story. It is, however, a typical Yellowrock story.

    I don't think I will get any angry arguments when I say that Jane isn't the brightest bulb in the box. She admits that fact to everyone. Her mistakes are legion and she manages to get a lot of people killed in nearly every story. Now, after saying that, you must realize that Faith Hunter writes the stories that way. And no, I don't know why she cripples her action heroine. Perhaps to those who much is given, much is taken away?

    I have also wondered why Faith Hunter insists on using First Person for her stories. The obvious drawback to this form is that Jane seems at times to sit back and watch while the carnage takes place all around her. Since she is incapable of taking positive action while describing in detail the actions taking place, it makes her appear to do nothing while folks die. First person stories always have that drawback built in. The Jane Yellowrock series would have been better in third person with first person insights added as required. Also, what's with the "Fashion Comments" in the middle of action scenes. Are they really necessary to the story?

    "Fabulous series, well-written and narrated."

    I really love the JANE YELLOWROCK series. Jane is a snarky, fun Southern heroine, snarky and intelligent, with a great supporting cast, especially Beast, who makes her more than the usual shifter.

    "Great character"

    "Good, complicated story"

    This is very much a "middle of the series" book. The story is so complicated with many subplots, that if you don't already know the characters it would be confusing. This is a great series, and I love how deeply the author goes into character personalities and background, even when she only hints at things. The end of the book is not the end of the story, with questions asked and not answered. But this book ends on an up note, rather than feeling a bit dark like previously. Jane gets herself into quite a few rough situations, but this time she isn't so alone. I would have liked more information about the demon and the angel, but maybe there will be more in the next book. The narrator is as good as before, which is to say great. I have recommended these books to friends.

    "can't stop listening!"

    I'm thoroughly enjoying the fact that I now know the pronunciation of the non-English words. the accent for Leo is still distracting, but that is probably just a combination of French voiced by the reader.

    I'm trying to listen thru all of the main books before Dark Heir comes out. I am so tempted to jump to the one right before that, though.

    "Jane Yellowrock & Beast Rock!"

    Much to my surprise the series continues to delight me. I normally lose interest in in the series after books 3 or four. Much to my chagrin this series continues to eat up my audible monthly credits!

    "makes you hungry!"

    it's a great story line, excellent narrator. But keep a bag of snacks handy as the author is clearly smitten with a food bug. You would think being a vamp and were-creature story it would be blood and guts centric. Not so, cheese fries and meats along with southern cooking dominate the consumption by Jane and others. I think each book has caused me to gain 5 lbs.
