Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire—but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs.... When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.
Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….
At A Glance
Hunter still has it!
I will admit, it’s been awhile since I last read a Faith Hunter book. I started the Jane Yellowrock Series a couple years ago and haven’t found the time recently to catch up. I read the first four books, then stopped, for no good reason. Now I am picking back up with book #8. I know, some of you will think I am insane, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to get back into this series. I didn’t feel like I was missing too much with skipping those few books. I fell right into the world I love, with the characters I love.
Wow, I can’t believe how much Jane has grown since I last read about her. She is really coming into her powers. She felt so…grown up. Obviously, Jane freaks out when she realizes she has accidently put down some roots, but I think this is good for her. Being a nomad forever is never fun. And Jane has finally turned into a girl. Again, that freaked Jane out, but I love this girly side to Jane. She is always so rough and strong, but I love that she finally has girl clothes, and puts on lipstick from time to time. Finding your feminine side, even when you often maim and kill things, can never be a bad thing. As always, Jane kicks butt a whole bunch in this book. It’s scary how she is fast becoming the strongest being amongst all the scary creatures. I am excited to see how far Hunter takes Jane.
The action was spot on and pretty much non-stop. I love how easily Hunter amps up the tension and suspense with just a few words. The plot was good. The bad guys were pretty creepy. I loved seeing all my old favs and some new faces. Beast is hilarious as always. Leo is crazy as always. I can’t wait for the next book. Things are going down for sure!
I felt like there was a lot left unfinished. We get amped up to read about the European vamps coming, and that never happens. Broken Soul is about all the crazy stuff before the big event. Which is cool, but it left me with more questions than answers.
I love Jane. She is one of the strongest MCs out there, but I wish she stuck to her guns a bit more near the end. She was a little too forgiving for things that were not that forgivable.
I may have missed what happened between Jane and Ricky Bo, but I love Jane and Bruiser together. He really is the perfect man for her…except at the end. I wish they talked about the incident before continuing their relationship.
Expect some steamy but not too detail sex scenes. Yummy!
Even with skipping a few books in the middle, this series is one of my favs. I wish I had time to keep up with all my series, but I don’t. But it was time to get back on the Jane Yellowrock horse, and I am so glad I did. Very recommended.
