Becoming a country of one city. Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind – a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she’s been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps. This book makes an exceptionally nice change from others in this genre, mainly because the protagonist is a strong, independent woman who actually likes herself, and is comfortable with her lot in life.
It’s very nice to read a story in skinwalkef the heroine isn’t complaining endlessly about her life, or gnashing her teeth over how to make some preternatural being fall in love with her. There are a few weak points hunfer the writing; another reviewer mentioned that the writer points out her own jokes fairly often, and this really IS kind of annoying.
Blood Cross (Jane Yellowrock, Book 2): Faith Hunter: : Books
The dialogue is kind of stilted hknter places, and a significant portion of the book is written from the POV of her cat-spirit, which takes a bit of getting used to. All in all, I consider this a good, solid debut novel in the Jane Yellowrock series, and I look forward to reading more. The main character, Jane Yellowrock, is of Indian origin and has the power to change into different creatures. IMHO, the best part of the book is when she is in the process of shifting or has already changed forms.
Her thinking process becomes that of the beast she has become, which is definitely a cool perspective. The rest of the book is your typical vampire-killing story with a smaller mystery component. There is no romance or sex, but lots of action and blood. I personally thought the book was okay, but nothing special. It is an easy listen and comes hnter a satisfying conclusion, so it stands alone. Maybe it’s just me, but it bugged me when she pronounced jewelry as “joolerie.
I’m finding that I don’t enjoy the vampire-hunting genre, but I’m plodding through the ones I bought in a recent sale.
Dark Queen (Jane Yellowrock, #12) by Faith Hunter
What I enjoyed about this book: What I didn’t like and why I won’t be reading any more books in the series: This might just be because I find all this to be too ‘girly’ and therefore boring coming from a male perspective but I just couldn’t get around the feeling that too much time was spent on such mundane things.
I never got the sense that she was ever in any real danger. I’m not a fan of most vampire books however the 2 “Jane Yellowrock” books I’ve listened to and they are on sale the first week of October are more mystery than gory vamp books There is a bit of romance but not lots.
If you skinwslker this kind of mystery I’d really recommend buying these books right now-the sale price is a winner Thanks Audible for introducing me to another author.
The narrator, Khristine Hvam does a really good job with the southern accents-but I like the way she ‘does’ The Beast best of all This is the first book that I have read by Faith Hunter. I found that I really enjoyed it. I liked that her main character is a strong, smart, and most importantly There has been alot of buzz about this book. So, I was pleasantly surprised, when I found it here. This is a hint of romance in this book, but only a hint.
I put off listening to this series for almost two years. It continuously showed in my recommended list but I was convinced I wouldn’t like it – maybe it was the cover faigh I gave in and bought it last week because it was on sale.
I listened to it immediately and was pleasantly surprised. The character of Jane is pickly and tough, not very likable at first. She has been hired by a local vampire council to hunt a rogue.
Jane is uniquely qualified hunger the job bacuse she shares her body with Beast, a panther spirit whose body she hijacked by accident when she was a child. If you can suspend your disbelief long enough to get into the story, it is fast paced and well skinwxlker.
The references to Cherokee culture are well researched and seamlessly integrated. The dialog is okay – not spectacluarly witty, but okay.
The voice of Beast is the one dialog exception. After resisting this series for two years, I bought the other three books after finishing this one! Don’t be deceived by the cover art it hides a great story! Someone who doesn’t mind subpar writing.

It needed a heavy hand with the editing. There were glaring inconsistencies in character, such as the main character who shuns alcohol repeatedly, then says she metabolizes it preternaturally quickly, then declines a single glass of Champagne because she doesn’t want to turn up to a party inebriated.
The plot kept me listening to the book, because the story line itself was pretty solid. There were enough plot twists to keep me listening.
I didn’t mind the Agatha Cristie-style “the butler did it” ending, although it would have been a stronger book had she at least woven the culprit in better. How did the narrator detract from the book?
She had trouble switching from accent to accent, making clear delineations in which character was speaking. When characters with different accents had dialogue, or a conversation, it sounded like the narrator got tripped up remembered who had what accent.
Her Southern accent was reasonably good, if not great. It was stronger during extended sections of Jane’s monologue. Voices for Leo and Bruiser were inconsistent, like the narrator could not decide on an accent, and ended up with something entirely bogus. I’m not sure if she was trying to describe accents for people who had lived all over the world, but she didn’t get them.
