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.

Listen to more Jane Yellowrock titles - if you dare.

    "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"

    I enjoy the complexity. A good balance between supernatural and originality. I'm hooked on the series.

    "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.

    "This narrator is great"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, one who likes Urban fantasy


    Would you be willing to try another book from Faith Hunter? Why or why not?

    Yes. This series reminds me of the early Anita Blake. Lots of action, emphasis on weaponry and police tactics, more mystery and a little tiny bit of romance. If you are a pure romance fan, you won't like this book. If you like mysteries and action, you will love it.


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

    Christin Hvam MAKES Beast. As written Beast's lines are somewhat stilted but Ms. Hvam makes Beast's voice really come to life.
