Overview

Jane Yellowrock is a shapeshifting skinwalker you don’t want to cross—especially if you’re one of the undead…

For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

Now, to uncover the identity of the vamp who wants Leo’s territory, and to find the cause of the vamp-plague, Jane will have to go to extremes…and maybe even to war.

Meet the Author

A native of Louisiana, Faith Hunter spent her early years on the bayous and rivers, learning survival skills and the womanly arts. She liked horses, dogs, fishing and crabbing much better than girly skills. She still does.

In grade school, she fell in love with fantasy and science fiction, reading five books a week and wishing she could "write that great stuff." Faith now shares her life with her Renaissance Man and their dogs in a Enclave of their own.

    Best book of the series!

    Wow. This book is hands down my favorite book from the series. It has tons of action and a great storyline. There were interesting new characters and my favorite old characters including Rick and Bruiser! Not going to spoil anything so go buy the book it is well worth it!

    Best One in the Series!

    This book was excellent! Faith Hunter introduced some excellent battles early in the book (even if they were in odd places - Sedona? Really?) and kept the pace up until the very end. Some new human characters were introduced, some old flames were rekindled, and the final breathtaking battle was AMAZING. Beast's character gets more action in the book, and I loved it. And some "big reveals" in the last few chapters have me salivating for the next book in the series. THIS book was definitely not "filler." THIS book was GREAT!

    This one doesn't disappoint!

    I am new to Jane Yellowrock series, having just come across it in the last two months. The first book - I couldn't put it down! Same was true of books 2 through 4. I read them all in a month and then had to wait for book 5 to be released. This book didn't disappoint and was as fast moving, innovative and just as good story telling at the first 4 books. Can't wait for the next book in this series. I have a new favorite author in Faith Hunter and her Jane Yellowrock series.

    Very Good

    I really liked this installment as it delved deeper into Jane's past. I especially like the characters, Eli and Alex, and hopes she decides to partner up with them permanently. I'm not so fond of Bruiser and his relationship with her. I'm very interested to see the effects of Beast being bound to Leo and what that will entail.

    A must-read for fans of vamps, weres, and kicking ass!

    The vampire-hunting team that is Jane Yellowrock and Beast are unlike any other paranormal series I have read. Start with "Skinwalker" and don't make any plans, because you'll want to read the next four immediately.

    The Jane Yellowrock series is one of my favorite series. There are currently five books in the series with the sixth one (Blood Trade) set to release in April of 2013. The first book is Skinwalker. The series features a Cherokee Skinwalker who is the last of her kind. Unlike most shapeshifter series, Jane is able to shift into any type of animal and is not limited to one type of animal throughout the whole series. We watch as Jane, a rogue vampire hunter, finds herself working for a vampire, learning of their culture, the culture of the people who serve them and sometimes finding that she is not the top predator in the room. I found her character development interesting. This is not a traditional shapeshifter and vampire series and I found I rather enjoyed the fresh take in the urban fantasy genre. If you like Kim Harrison Rachel Morgan series, Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series, and Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series (just to name a few) then you should also try this series!

    Faith Hunter Never Lets you Down

    I needed another kick ass fantasy writer to supplement my addiction to Michelle Sagara. Faith Hunter fits the bill. Jane Yellowrock is awesome. And unlike some writers whose heroines become predictable, unlikeable, or just plain freaky, Yellowrock stays true to form. I love BEAST. I'm fascinated by the complex character development. And I can honestly say I don't see where it's going to end. Nothing predictable about it. A must read author.

    Another great book in a fascinating series. Can't wait for the next one. Maybe Beast will show Leo why it's not wise to tug the kittycat's tail.

    Faith Hunter is an amazing author. Her characters are so strong

    Faith Hunter is an amazing author. Her characters are so strong and multi-dimensional! I read a lot of urban fantasy and sometimes feel like my eyes are going to roll into the back of my head from the "super special conflicted wunderkinds" I see. Jane and Beast live and breathe...Love how she gives people nicknames. Love her sexy guys and the conflicts she feels. Get the series. You won't be disappointed.

    WOW!

    Excellent installment in the series. Janes love life has most defintely taken a turn. Im still hoping she hooks up with Bruzier though. But anyone would be nice, i hate long drawn out love triangles.

    Only because I'm a fan....

    Why does B&N request reviews before a book even comes out? Someone should check their software/database configuration.
