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.

I enjoyed delving more into Jane's history and building the relationships between characters from previous books in the series.
Jane is an amazing character, strong, funny, sexy, mysterious yet familiar and endearing.
I loved the whole series thus far. I can't wait to see what Jane will get herself into next.
Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.
I have enjoyed the entire series, but honestly this is one of my favorite. Narrator is great and the story line built on the previous books, but you could still understand the plot even if you didn't read the previous stories.
The Jane Yellowrock series hooked me with the first book. I promptly bought the rest
of the series and am now impatiently waiting for the next book. Smart, quirky, sexy
characters with surprising paranormal twists. Well worth having in my audible library.
This is book 4 following the life of Jane Yellowrock. She's a shapeshifter, who's main job is under the employ of Leo, Master of the city of New Orleans. Her job is to kill rogue vamps, but also is employed as security for Leo's functions. She has a team, of ex special ops that she works with when needed. The stories just keep building, bringing in new characters,(all of which, are quite interesting). Non stop suspense, action, mystery, personal humor, and sexual tension (without the smut, like Anita Blake). Jane and her beast are truly interesting, with each book, we learn a little more of what Jane is all about.Beast has become more interesting, and is much easier to relate to, from the first novel. If you like, a kick butt heroine, that isn't perfect, with an action packed story, then give this series a try.
I just finished the series of Jane Yellowrock and in three words I would say---addictive, a keeper, and more!
George Dumas, because he is kind, dependable, resourceful and even Jane can't ruffle his feathers. All that beside being really good to look at..
Khristine involves me in the story, she does not simply read the lines, she becomes the characters and she does it very well. She really helps you to visualize the action.
Jane's vulnerability when Beast, her inner cat disappears and the loss throws her for a loop. She realizes how much she depends on Beast, but can't find her, doesn't know if she will be back. Jane doesn't usually do vulnerable, just brash, sarcastic and snarky, so this was a new experience for her.
Read the book or listen to it, or both, like me. You won't regret the credit, and you'll be waiting for the next book this fall.
I started this series and thought it was interesting because of Native American folk lore, etc. However this story really was the best so far and I hope that Ms Hunter will continue with thins series. Also I think Khristine Hyam did an excellent job on narration. Looking forward to more.
This one is a cliffhanger... who knows what Jane will do now... Very complex novels. Who thinks like this? Creating a really interesting new type of character.
Jane is a very likeable character - especially when portrayed by the smooth, sultry voice of Khristine Hvam. Although this was not my favorite Jane Yellowrock story, I would still listen to it and the entire series all over again. I'll also be patiently waiting to snatch up the next installment of this addictive series!
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I had not heard of Faith Hunter before of Khristine Hyam, but I am sure happy I played a hunch and purchased this book. I didn't know what I was getting, but from the very first, I was pleasantly surprised and stayed that way until the end when I thought "no no no - too soon to quit". Not your usual take on vampire stories and has no hidden romance stories. I loved the Cherokee side of her "Skin Walker" talant and the play of "The Beast" in the dialogue. I've become a fan and look forward for the next one.
This series is thoroughly enjoyable. I haven't any regrets since the purchase of the first one in the series. I will continue to follow Jane Yellowrock as her journey through the supernatural world and self discovery progress.
