For the first time - in one Audible-exclusive collection - it's 13 stories of Jane Yellowrock, the shape-shifting skinwalker and vampire hunter for hire whose business card reads, "Have Stakes - Will Travel". Jane carries inside her the soul of her Beast, the mountain lion's soul which merged with hers when she accidently performed black magic as a child. Now, she and her Beast stalk the dark streets of New Orleans, bringing rogue vampires true death.

Absolutely loved all of the stories. Listened to this after all the Jane YellowRock books.
I still hope that Ricky-Beau's life improves. Can he, Jane and Bruiser form a Triumvirate?

As Enforcer to the vampire Master of the City of New Orleans, Jane Yellowrock stakes her reputation and her life on keeping her territory safe. But Leo has been issued a blood challenge by the emperor of the European vampires, who seeks to usurp all of his power and possessions. If Leo loses the match to the death, the city will be forfeit, and the people of New Orleans will suffer the consequences. Jane can't let that happen.

Hated it and loved it in turn. Hard to accept that Jane's final acts would be so cowardly... until realizing that she acted true to character.

Love Narrator's voices of early characters, however as cast grew she was not able to create original voice for each new character.

Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker...and the woman rogue vampires fear most. Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City. But Leo's reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions. And there's another danger to the city.

Excellent narration!
I now have a dilemma; I've been rooting for Rick and Jane to mate and have a happy ever-after. Didn't trust Bruiser... he now seems to have proved me wrong
Rick is getting a bum deal; just more abuse .
Maybe Joan will listen to Beast about mates...or Anita Blake and have two mates.

Who is Jane's betrayer that the Blue Dragon warned her about "someone you trust."

I NEVER WANT JANE'S STORY TO END... but I do want her OUT OF New Orleans!!!

The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane.

Spoiler Alert-
I enjoy the continued reveal of Beast's abilities and origins.

Frustrated that Jane's relationship with Ricky-Bo failed to get back on track and even strengthen.
I continue to root for their pairing both personal and professional.

The narrator is one of the best!

Magic, romance, and adventure collide in Wandfasted, the irresistible prequel to The Black Witch: When they painted Heretics on our barn and set fire to it, I thought that was the worst it could get. Until they sent the dragons. But they didn't count on us having dragons of our own. And they certainly didn't count on Her. Our Great Mage. The Bringer of Fire. The Storm of Death. The Crow Sorceress. Our Deliverance. The Black Witch.

I found this novella to be quite satisfying and had to listen to almost all of it in one day; I couldn't stop listening! I was also pleasantly surprised by the narrator. After reading some of the negative reviews I was expecting to find the voice irritating and that was not my experience.
Spoiler Alert: Is there a missing chapter floating in cyberspace? Conversations with Jules Christian and the other main characters about Tesla's handfasting are missing!

Before Elloren Gardner came to possess the White Wand of myth, the Wand was drawn to another bearer: Sagellyn Gaffney. Sage’s affinity for light magery, a rare skill among Gardnerians, makes her the perfect protector for the one tool that can combat the shadows spreading across Erthia. But in order to keep the Wand safe from the dark forces hunting for it, Sage must abandon everything she once knew and forge a new path for herself...a dangerous course that could lead to either triumph or utter ruin.

I enjoyed "The Black Witch" so much that I immediately searched for additional books in the series and purchased this one.

Unfortunately, "Light Mage" lacked the richness of detail found in "Black Witch.". Too many shortcuts taken and months skipped.

I suggest that if you are just looking at this series, you might want to listen to this novella first and then go to "The Black Witch."

Narrator neither added to nor detracted from my experience; therefore the average rating.

All Morna Conall wants is freedom - freedom to practice and learn about the magic inside her. Perhaps then her world wouldn't feel so small. When she finds the spell books and journals of an old mentor, Morna believes she's found the key to her happiness, but when she crosses paths with an injured man in need of help, her plans are derailed. As she spends more time with the strange but alluring man, her dreams change. Maybe magic isn't the only thing capable of expanding her world.
