Jane Yellowrock is a shapeshifting skinwalker you don’t want to cross - especially if you’re one of the undead....
For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.
Now, to uncover the identity of the vamp who wants Leo’s territory, and to find the cause of the vamp-plague, Jane will have to go to extremes...and maybe even to war.

Fast, Fast, Fast.
The last two chapters.
The book comes to life. I can create the images in my head. Well written.
Better that Twilight.
Disciple of the written word and Audible fanatic. I am an Urban and Epic Fantasy Fan. I also enjoy some Paranormal Romance.
Faith Hunter and Christine Hvam are a pairing made in audio heaven!
Jane and Beast never disappoint but in this book they also have some surprises. Jane learns some hard lessions and we get introduced to some very interesting new characters.
If I am not imagining things there is some foreshadowing going on in the beginning that may be relevant later. I love this series so much that it's one of the few I will listen to several times.
I love the Narrator's accent and ability to sweep the listener along. She is pitch and expression perfect. She reads in exactly the way I feel I would read, so it doesn't ever feel as if I want her to slow down or hurry up.
Jane is my favourite character, she is very well rounded as a person, extremely capable but not over confident. it has also been possible to watch her grow as a person throughout the series.
Christine definitely brings the Southern character of the books to life, which will be clear to all listeners/readers now instead of just those who are already familiar with the american south.
Enjoy the ride!
when is the next book available
I heart scifi, and have become addicted to listening instead of reading, or even watching tv.
I think this is the best Jane Yellowrock book yet. It's all around good writing, good characters and a good story. There's some foreshadowing without giving to much away, there's some missing pieces that come together, theirs beast being cunning and funny, and theirs little twists that aren't obvious. So many books have these little twists that you can "feel" coming a mile away, if that makes any sense. I enjoyed just getting caught up in this book. I love this series, and 5 books in am still enthralled. I can't say that for all the series I read.
Great story and great narration. I finished this book late at night and I was so hyped up I couldn't fall asleep. I wanted more. I have really enjoyed all the books in this series but I found this story more suspenseful. I loved it.
It is hard to compare this book to another I have read because of the main character's duel nature. The Alfa Omega series by Patricia Briggs, also a great series, has a bit of this with Charles and Brother Wolf. Charles is also influenced by his Native American heritage. While they are very different in many ways, if you like Mercy Thompson and/or Alfa Omega by Patricia Briggs I bet you will like Jane Yellowrock too, but I suggest starting with book one.
I think Ms. Hvam does a great job bringing Beast to life. I just don't think I would ever have fully understood the Jane/Beast relationship without her masterful narration.
There is always a chuckle or two in a Jane Yellowrock book but this one put a lump in my throat more that once. That surprised me.
I just hope Faith Hunter will write #6 fast, fast, fast!
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
I am waiting anxiously for book 6! I really like all the accents and all of the twists and turns of this book's journey. I enjoyed the humor and sarcasm of Jane and of Beast. I think Rick wimped out! And I can't wait to see what Beast is going to do with the Master of the city in the next book :)
I wasn't disappointed at all. As a matter of fact, I had stopped listening to the earlier books and when I downloaded this one, I was pleasantly surprised. I say, "Go For It". You'll enjoy the listening.
I love the character of Jane Yellowrock. She is every hero you ever had.
There is no comparison. Jane is the ultimate.
I've only heard her with the Jane Yellowrock series, and she is a master! She is a perfect Jane and also perfect for all the other various characters in the series. No one else could do justice to the series, and I hope she continues to be the narrator for future Jane Yellowrock books.
I did want to. Listened to part of it on a 400 mile trip and then more on the return. Although my rule is to listen to audio books only in the car, I could not help myself, and I finished listening when I got home. (as I did with Jane #4)
Write faster Faith--we need the next installment!
It's so good, without all the gross romance.
All of it was amazing
She is the female version of Harry Dresden! If you love the Dresden files you will love Jane yellowrock!
Well, the obvious in Mercy Thompson (by Briggs) (skin walker, mixed hertitage native american, Vampire killer etc.), There is also some aspects of Jane's personality that remind me on Anita Blake (Hamilton)... and maybe a little bit of Elena Michaels (Armstrong) in ther too.
I think I finally made my peace with the "beast" sections-- I don't really enjoy this POV, but it's growing on me. The romance in these books has never really do it for me... but the plot of this installment made up from any weak points in the lovie-dovies.
