Slaying vampires is child's play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans' supernatural players is another story.... Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her door. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep. A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit...undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies.

Jane Yellowrock has quickly become my favorite heroine, leaving Anita Blake and even Rachel Morgan in my rearview. I no longer anticipate Laurel Hamilton or JR Ward's works but Faith Hunters.
The story moves at a good pace,is detailed but not to the point of boredom. You get a clear picture in your head of what's going on. The romance is just enough and doesn't take away from the action. There is always a clear storyline and not just "filler words.
Jane Yellowrock is presented as strong,sexy and kick ass, not a woman with borderline low self esteem unsure of herself.
The narrator is almost perfect. I have to get past the giggles when she is reading French vampire Leo. Overall, a great story. I highly recommend it.

This tale was suspenseful and full of intrigue. I like that the author was not afraid to be risqué. One of the characters describes how he feels when he is killing. Powerful stuff

The jewel of Dantenos short was just a little warm up I suppose for the whole story. It didn't provide enough substance for my taste. Lees' personality takes a turn in a better direction. Thank the gods,because he was kinda an idiot at first. Ha ha. Happy reading!
