I wish I were exagerating! I like the way Jane was written, I liked the idea of the character and that she was a vamp hunter. After reading all this, I still pictured it as a regular shotgun, so what’s the point? Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning. 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.

Majorly — which is perfect for a series junkie like me. While Jane herself is a very direct person, she does describe things in enough detail to keep the story interesting and unique, from teapots to the smell of a motorcycle.

We all have our favorites and not-so-favorites.

Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock, #1) by Faith Hunter

I liked how she felt so warm and fuzzy toward her friend’s daughter, and how she cares about people. If you like UF and think that those snippets I quoted didn’t sound bad at all, then definitely give it a chance. When a rogue starts killing civilized vampires and humans, Jane is hired by the Vampire Council of New Orleans to stop it by any means necessary.


Even Anita Blake’s lack-of-plot books have more plot than this book did. Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker—and a rogue-vampire hunter for hire. Why can’t they be more straightforward and say it like it is? I am a bit bored with vampires, although I do and will read a good vampire story.

Honestly, I thought this was pretty good for the first book in a series! Book 10 in the Jane Yellowrock series. In grade school, she fell in love with fantasy and sifi, reading five books a week. But take a look at the way in which she does it. S,inwalker are a lot of acronyms used in these books.

This one falls in this category and I was not disappointed. But give us jnae filtered version of what you found.

Which makes this poor little reader’s head hurt really, really bad. Nov 14, Werner rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Under all her pen names, she has more than 40 books, anthologies, and complications in print in 30 countries.

And it adds necessary depth and texture to this story, since that forms a very important part of the overall plot, part of Jane’s journey, and a significant part of the mystery element in this novel. BTW – my best guess is 5 months.


Full Length Jane Yellowrock Novels

Hunter is overly descriptive with everything. She’s supposed to be a smartmouth, but to me, she just came across as plain rude. I’ll give her this: She just had a “gift” for mispronouncing words demur pronounced “de-more” for example High, to roof-top, running. I skinwalket this is a character introduction but our serious choices in this book seemed to be power-hungry vampire sociopath, lead henchman to the power-hungry vampire sociopath and extreme douchebag A.

In this series-opener, Faith Hunter has created one of the most original and vividly-realized fictional protagonists to come down the pike in a long time, and established herself in my skinwaloer as one of the genre’s most outstanding contemporary voices.

I also liked that while she doesn’t sleep around, she can appreciate a good looking man, and there are quite a few of them in this book. Just ask Joanne Walker, whose shamanic magic has drawn her to the heart of American Weird. She just received a boar skull, and the skull of a mountain lion legally purchased from a US tannery killed in the wild.
