Faith Hunter is the USA Today bestselling author of the Jane Yellowrock Novels, as well as the Rogue Mage novels. A native of Louisiana, she 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.

Welcome to the world of Jane Yellowrock- Cherokee skinwalker/rogue vampire hunter extraordinaire. Filled with an in-depth timeline of the series to date, a character list, glossary, an interview with Beast, and new stories only found in the companion, this read immerses you in one of the best urban fantasy series on the market. Jane Yellowrock World Companion is bar none one of the best companion guides I have ever read. Everything you expect to find in a companion is here but where it really shines in is the timeline (written by Carol Malcolm) and the new short stories and novella Hunter has included. The timeline reads like a CliffsNotes version of the series and hits all the important and major events that a reader needs to refresh (especially when you may not always have the time to reread a series prior to a new book release). I personally appreciate this because, frankly, I read a lot and sometimes I do need a refresher. This is really a superior rundown of the series. As for the short stories, both from Brusier’s point of view (these stories may have put this reviewer firmly in the Brusier camp), add wonderful depth to an already complex and compelling character, and it is always fun to see Jane from someone else’s point of view. The novella, Beneath a Bloody Moon, reads just like a full-length novel. All the action, all the mystery, all the Jane-ness we have come to expect in a slightly-condensed form. It adds to the overall story-line, especially with solidifying how Jane is coming to terms with the Younger Brothers being in her life and whets our appetites for the next release. The novella all by itself makes this a worthwhile purchase. If you are a fan of Jane Yellowrock, this is a must-have. The new original material and the detailed timeline really make this companion stand out. All of the other facets of the companion serve as an excellent reference guide to an ever-expanding world, and I can hardly wait to see what Faith Hunter has in store for Jane (and us) next.

I really enjoyed this companion book, it explains what has happened in each book up to this point so if you're like me and have been reading them since they first came out this is a good refresher to get us ready for Black Arts. The short story was Jane/Beasts usual exciting tale. Lots of action with a great story, this time about some Werewolves killing people and Rick and his crew are teaming up with Jane and her team to find out what is going on and to put a stop to it. Since I have the hots for Bruiser I was pleasantly surprised and delighted to read some stories from Bruisers point of view. I loved getting to know him even better.

I liked the two short stories from Bruiser's point-of-view and loved the novella. The two short stories revisited two scenes we had already seen from Jane's point-of-view, so they were nice in that they let us know what Bruiser, and to some extent, Leo, as well, was thinking at the time, but they weren't "new" events. The novella, "Beneath a Bloody Moon", on the other hand, was golden! Jane/Beast, Eli, and the Kid take a job to investigate possible werewolf attacks in an area thick with Ricky-Bo's kinfolk. It was nice to see Jane back to working a case that didn't involve vamp politics. The rest of the book wasn't as impressive. The glossary of terms, major character list, and summaries of all of the Jane Yellowrock stories published thus far would be useful for people who wanted to refresh their memories about who certain characters are and a few details they may have forgotten. The summaries also include short stories from various anthologies that people may not have purchased or had the opportunity to read. *However, the summaries have a number of distracting typographical errors and the glossary has a few formatting issues, at least in the Nook version that I read.* (I only skimmed the summaries, but I still noticed the typos.) There is also a section listing some of Jane's quotes and her weaponry. Another section is an advice column from Beast as it appeared on Beast's Facebook page a while back. I've never bought a companion book for any other series. Basically, the two short stories and the novella are the only reasons I really wanted this book, and I was happy with them. However, I do believe that the formatting of the glossary and the typographical errors in the summaries should definitely be addressed if this book ever goes to print. It also gets a bit tedious to be asked to buy short stories scattered among three different books in the same month.

When I feel like really good and gritty Urban Fantasy with a well developed world and mythology and a badass but practical heroine, I return to this series.  Since I have read it over a long time period with many books between book in the series and the next, this Companion Book provides excellent reminders of what I may have forgotten and with novella, shorts, and Beast interview, it is also just a lot of fun. I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.

Short. But I did enjoy the short stories. It needed a little more though.

In addition to the short stories the companion will fill in parts of the series not addressed directly. Especially handy if reading books out of order. would have rated higher if able to access items logically.l

Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series is one of my favorite reads, so maybe I am pre-disposed to love all her books. Of course, this was  no exception. As the World Companion, this book is also about the series and the world created by Ms. Hunter. There are synopses of all the books  and short stories thus far, as well as a novella leading up to next installment due out any day now, Black Arts! The novella was great, in "Under a Bloody Moon," Jane and her crew of Eli and the Kid have been contracted by PsyLED, the government  supernatural agency, to take care of a "Wild Dog" problem, not far from New Orleans. One thing I loved about this story, was that it  advanced the relationship between Jane and her on again/off again boyfriend RickyBo and Beast, her soul sharing companion.  This is a great series, and I would encourage any fans of good Urban Fantasy with strong, interesting female characters to try it out, though I recommend starting with the first book of the series, Skinwalker.

This book was an exceptional look into the Jane Yellowrock world from multiple points of view. The new stories included in it were sugar on the donut!
