3.5 It was ok, I still love Jane, she's an absolute badass!

Maybe this book deserves a lot more stars, but I read it after a fantastic, 5-star novel, so I was fresh out of feels.

Still, she's the same badass chick I got to know and love. True, I would have liked a bit more romance stuff, this one felt kind of like a filler (although I understand Jane's need for but of away-time).

Ah well, on to the next one!

A buddy read with the great Wednesday UF group @ BB&B:-)

Another wonderful addition to the Jane Yellowrock series! By now we know most everything about Jane, although the author keeps on feeding us little crumbs of flashbacks, revealing information about her past. I love Jane! She is one kick ass chick with serious skills to take down rogue Vampires and other evil creatures. She is a skin walker, tall, dark and dangerous, loves dancing and HAS THE WORST TASTE IN MEN EVER!!! Also, she
I feel badly giving a Jane Yellowrock book 3 stars. This is definitely a series I look forward to reading, an author I enjoy supporting and I have a great deal of interest in and affection for the characters. Like a lot of the other readers I felt like this installment didn't get us anywhere and was much more of the same.

In all fairness, it was intended to be a transition book...a book that set us up for big changes the next book, except I already feel like I have been waiting. While some of th

Another week and another Jane Book. some spoilers in the Rant section

I have the same issue with this book that I have had with all of the Jane Yellowrock books. I like the plot lines and the monsters in them, I also enjoy most of the side characters but I end up hating the silly and ridiculous love triangle crap thrown in.

So we will discuss the plot line first. Jane is stuck, after the events at the end of book 5 she now can’t get very far away from New Orleans and Leo. At least for now and in t

Jane Yellowrock really is a well done urban fantasy series, and this latest installment delivers in almost every way. It's well written, with a smart plot and intricate story telling. The world-building is good; the continuity is great; and the characters are fleshed out and sympathetic.

As the story begins, Jane's beast is still bound to master vamp Leo, and it's just one of many reasons she is depressed. She's still sad about her break-up with Rick; she misses her lost friend Molly; and she is

I love Faith Hunter, and Jane will always be one of my favorite kick-ass heroines, BUT . . . this latest installment was not my favorite.

Jane is in a new city. By itself, that's not terrible.

Jane was in Asheville in Raven Cursed, but Natchez, Mississippi is different. Jane has no ties to Natchez. Asheville, on the other hand, is where Jane learned the ropes of her security trade, and it's also home to Molly and her entire extended family.

In Asheville, Leo was still a big presence despite his r

Buddy read with the fantastic people of BB&B.

Jane is a great character but she's also one of the biggest idiots I've ever read about. She's somewhere up with Gin from Elemental Assassin when it comes to idiotic behaviour. Thankfully she has Beast to balance things out.

You see this book had the potential to be a five star read. I loved the way it started. Mostly I loved the absence of the two douchebags Leo and Rick. I'm still mad at Leo for what he did in the previous book and I want him to

The latest in Jane's tale reminds me of a chocolate covered espresso bean. Smooth, bittersweet on the outside, and hard and full of energy on the inside.

Jane's character is stretching. She's continuing to discover things about herself, including that relationships are difficult, whether they are romantic interests or close friends.

In the meantime, she's also learning that vampires aren't all that they seem. In Jane's world, they never sparkle, they are dark, generally charismatic, and egotistic

This is a difficult review tor me to write because I love the Jane Yellowrock series but feel that "Blood Trade" is more of the same ole same ole. The series is beginning to feel stagnate to me with Jane rushing off go one job after another, battle after battle, and no progress towards resolution in her love life or lack there of.

In this installment, Jane goes against the wishes of Leo, Master of the City of New Orleans and accepts s job from Hieronymous, MOC of Natchez, Mississippi. The big H

Since this is very early in the book's release (I got my Kindle download at midnight and as a result got very little sleep!) this review will remain a bit vague to avoid spoilers, but I will share my impressions.

The action packed Skinwalker series continues to grab readers from the start and pull you right into the story. Jane Yellowrock, a shape changing, Harley riding, snarky, Cherokee skinwalker who shares her soul with a mountain lion simply known as Beast, has a little problem. In a nutshel

This is really frustrating.
Neither like it nor hate it.
Yet I am feeling disturbed and frustrated that I seem not to feel any connection with it or immerse myself into the story.
Frankly speaking.. it is just Jane killing vamps. What else right?

It feels that Jane is getting soft and teary eyes all the time.
Hookey gluey to the men issue in her life.
Her obsession in what she is wearing for her job.. her so called toys aka guns.. knives..
It is all blah blah blah to me....

I hate Rick. Still

***2017 Summer Lovin’ Reading List***

I am stalled on the Anita Blake series (my library has the next required volume ‘on order’) and on the Fever series (waiting on another reader to return the next volume), which has left me forging ahead with a vengeance on the Jane Yellowrock series.

I am fond of Jane’s new partners-in-crime, Eli & the Kid. If anyone loves guns more than Jane does, its Eli. I’m glad he’s found his love-interest in a small-town sheriff, because Jane doesn’t need any more

Jane and the Younger brothers travel to Natchez, Mississippi at the behest of the Master of the City who is dealing with a nasty rogue vampire problem. Unfortunately, these rogues prove more difficult to dispose of than expected, and the body count continues to rise. The situation worsens when witches begin disappearing and the men in Jane’s life also arrive on the scene. Jane will have a great deal of juggling to do to restore order…

I just loved this book. Jane is a perfectly imperfect heroine. She screws up, she falls, she says the wrong thing, but she keeps trying. She keeps learning, she keeps growing, and this tale is more of what I've come to expect from her. I won't post spoilers, because I just won't, but I can say that inroads are made in some relationships, and one person in particular, gets called on his BS, which frankly, I've been hoping for for a while. The action in this book is fantastic and fast moving. I lo ...more

So this was really good. The story arc from the last 5 books comes to a close here though really I didn't know that there was an arc or anything that was binding them until we come partially through this one. You need to read the books preceding it to understand the whole, so don't start with this one.

Still even with a pretty good read, I'm not taken by Jane Yellowrock. I have friends that love Beast and their relationship. I have friends that love the relationships she wants but doesn't seem t

*First Thoughts*

Blood Trade, the sixth book in the Jane Yellowrock series, mostly takes place in Natchez, Mississippi where the master of the city, Hieronymus, is having problems with Naturaleza vampires left over from Death's Rival. The Naturaleza's are causing major problems for the residents of the city and asks Jane for help through Reach.

Jane has been through a lot over the course of this series. The one thing that hasn't changed is the number of weapons s
Yay! The new Jane Yellowrock does not disappoint fans! Although it is hard to remember since the last time I read Jane's epic saga, I got pulled right into the story and its action. In the last tale, we were able to learn more about Jane and her past, now we are learning more about her present (some of her past) and a lot about relationships. Or better yet, Jane's relationships with a certain primo and black panther. I really did enjoy getting to see this side of Jane more, simply because we don ...more

Another great addition to what amounts to the second half of Jane Yellowrock's storyline. We've got all the old characters, fleshed out in even more detail, with a great storyline full of twists and turns and... THANKFULLY... Not as heavy on the three page deep descriptions of unrequited lust that bogged down the earlier novels. (I know it's just a story, but not every human interaction is tainted with unspoken sexual tension... And lets be frank: when adults want to get it on, they get it on.) ...more

Blood Trade takes Jane and her gang to Asheville. The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a problem and he needs Jane to clean it up.

Jane and Beast are awesome in this installment. Their was some good progress on their front. Jane has been depressed and Beast is not happy with her. Why? Well in Death's Rival some bad things happened. Jane lost her best friend, is now tied to MoC of Louisiana, and Rick well he’s out and in her life, which makes things difficult. She’s all messed up in the start o

Summary: Contrary to Leo's wishes, Jane heads out to Natchez, MS to help with rogue vampires. A problem where Naturaleza vampires, those that want unlimited human cattle, have "disappeared" over 100 people. Can she and her friends stop the bad guys? Bad guys that are not what they seem...

Review: Action, fantasy, romance, self-evaluation, forgiveness. All of these elements appear in Jane Yellowrock's newest tale by Faith Hunter.

I loved this book! I'm a big fan of the series in general, and Blood Trade continued all the great action, scene setting, and character interaction I have come to expect while taking the storyline in a promising direction. Buy it today. You won't be able to put it down.

Finally, things are looking up for Jane Yellowrock. The previous book, Death's Rival, left Jane isolated personally, unwillingly entangled professionally, and at one of the lowest points in her life. It was, frankly, heartbreaking

Jane is back, and her beast is chained to Leo. Something that Jane does not want him to know, like ever... It was funny reading about her beast puddling into a mush whenever she hears Leo's voice. Strong, big mate :)

Scared to shift, in fear that her beast will go straight to Leo and happily roll around in his bed, she eagerly takes on a job that is on the border of Leo's ruling. The Big H's territory. There she is given a lot of money per head of vampire that she kills. Only these vampires are s

Loved it!
I LOVE this story. This is the first Jane Yellowrock book that (for me) ran the full gamut of emotions, and left me in tears. It was pretty fabulous. :-)

This sixth book also seems to have maybe closed out an arc that began with book #1, and that I didn't realize was an arc. Of course, I don't feel too bad about this. Jane didn't realize her first six adventures were all connected either. ;-)

And if this sixth book did NOT close out that arc, we at least now know that there was an overall arc. :-)

Blood Trade has the almost non-stop action we've come to expect and hunger for in the Jane Yellowrock series, making it another good addition.

Some highlights that I loved:

- The new characters Eli and Alex 'the Kid'. I think they were a dynamic that was really needed in Jane's life. Especially since Molly lives so far away and might not be in the picture so much? Hopefully that won't be permanently the case. I do however think that how quickly these characters became "family" for her was a bit f
