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.

    "Yellowrock reigns"

    While Leo may rule the vampires of the Southeastern US, it is Cherokee Shape Shifter Jane Yellowrock who reigns over the "supernats"-- weapons at the ready.
    The nefarious don't stand a chance. With help from allies and even one or two enemies, her fast paced adventures keeps us listening for more.

    Story
    "Much better than book 3."

    A lot better than book three. Not as many unresolved threads. Story is a bit unfocused, or rather focused on several different things. Redeemed by Hunter managing to tie things up at the end.

    Tension is high, pace is a bit uneven, but action junkies will get what they want. Beast is great, almost upstaging Jane at times.

    Hvam's narration is great.

    "Blood Cross" is still my favorite in this series.

    Final niggle: I wish that Hunter's editor had done her job! A lot of expletives in a high tension job like Jane's is a given. But PLEASE have her say something other than "crap".

    Any additional comments?

    This book is action packed...but Jane is still making rookie mistakes..partly the vamp politics are to blame and partly she is. Many relationship changes are in Jane's future and the big question of whether or not she's done with the vamps.

    Love books about creatures of all sorts. Bored with explicit sexual verbiage - less is more.

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

    Evan


    Do you think Raven Cursed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Too much going on, i needed a list.

    Would love to see characters drawn out.

    "WONDERFUL story HORRIBLE reader"

    The story about Jane Yellowrock is fantastic. Book Noir with excellent reference and an adept creation of the Yellowrock universe. Unfortunately, the reader's fake NC accent that fluctuates from Southern Georgia to East TX accent and another less distinctive southern accent Her attempts at a Cajun accent are more than grating. When cerulean is pronounced sir roooooo lian, jojoba becomes Joe Joe Ba (accent on the last syllable) and heraldic is pronounced hair all dick (again, accent is on the final syllable) among many mispronunciations that mar the enjoyment of the book, it makes one wonder if the reader is intentionally mispronouncing the words or if she simply is unfamiliar with them. The reader needs to know what the words mean and their pronunciation prior to putting the words on audio. The editing is sloppy and is obvious when she takes a break and returns with the volume changes as well as vocal inconsistencies. I love the series, hate the performance.

    "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.

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