Oh JaneHow can you be so on point in your professional life and so totally messed up in your personal one. It is baffling to the mind.
Jane in her professional life
Jane in her personal life
Overall I think Id like this if the story stayed more Urban Fantasy and less Paranormal Romance and by Paranormal Romance I mean love triangle/square/quadrangle tangles mess with self esteem issues.
So the things I enjoy in this story are all on the plot side:

Another great Urban Fantasy series with my UF Wednesday Group @ BB&B!
This series is so much fun! Not ha-ha fun, but adrenaline rush kind of fun. This being the third book in the series, we already have a relationship with Jane Y., our Skinwalker rogue Vampire hunter. "Have steaks, will travel". She is Cherokee and with a very ambiguous history, but one thing is for sure - the soul of a large wild cat shares her body with her, after a magical accident in a moment of self ...more
Leo has a little werewolf problem. In this series, weres have just come out to the human population, and are not playing nice. Faith Hunter does a great job with ...more
The third book isnt slowing down at all because theres something always going on, central large mystery story-wise, small side mysteries, personal dilemmas for the main characters, AND personal dilemmas for the side-characters. An unusual thing about this series is that Jane is a form of shifter, although not considered a were usually the first and second books involving shifters involve OTHER shifters as the main focus. Instead Jane Yellowrock has ...more
Well, this was fun!
Only reason I didn't give it 5 full stars is because of the love relationship, I don't like that (view spoiler)[ Rick cheats on her because of his job. I want her to fall for Leo! (hide spoiler)]
Other than that, well, it was damn fun! I really liked the plot, the whole revenge thing, and the new character was absolutely lovely!
And the cliffhanger, gah! I'm off to read the next one!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
Like Kate, she lost parents to violence, and like Kate, she has unique skill sets, both supernatural and physical. Both are young women supposedly comfortable being on their own, working as security consultants and swords-for-hire. Yet, so much of Janes energy is caught up in her negative feels that it is quite distressing.
It begins with Jane and Rick, her boyfriend of a month, packing up her things in ...more
A great contribution to a great urban fantasy series.
Recommended, but start with ...more
I wavered a little bit between 3 and 4 stars, settling on 4 simply because the worldbuilding continues to be above average for the genre.
I do have one little point I'd like to make: Rick was kinda turned into a MacGuffin. It might have been somewhat more ...more
Deadpool: Youre going to need some more lemon juice to get the blood out of that.
HQ: Rats! I liked that T, so whos hotter me or Jane Yellowrock?
Deadpool: Youve definitely got that VW backseat attractiveness but I could take Jane home to meet my mom. But Jane may try to stake mom in under 20 minutes.
HQ: Your mom a vamp?
I think part of my difficulty with this book, and the series, is that I'm not really sure where it's going as an overarching series. ...more
One of the reasons that I like Jane so much is that she bestows nicknames on the people around her. Thats one of my bad habitsgiving names to those people who I ...more
Another instalment and another group of preternaturals added to the mix. Or rather two groups. The one was expected to show up sooner or later - the were-animals. They've chosen to reveal themselves to the general public and it leads to some interesting results. In most UF the author would start with the most common were-animal in existence - the werewolves. After all we're all familiar with them. Ms Hunter, however, chose to introduce werecats ...more
Jane is taking a mini-holiday with her new boyfriend Rick, when shes suddenly called back to New Orleans by her boss, Leo Pellisier, because Weres announced their existence to the world. And soon Jane is once again placed in the middle of a turf war, this time between vampires and their old enemy the weres. When Jane is sent to deliver a message for Leo, shes attacked by a group of werewolves intent on sending a message to Leo, but shes saved by an intriguing stranger, Girrard. Girrard who used...more
Writing a review for this one feels a little repetitive since little has changed in terms of what I like/dislike since the first book. In fact, I could copy the review of the second book verbatim and have it work this time as well.
In this one, two new species of supes make their appearance. One that we don't know much about it ...more
1. LOVE Janes character. There are few kick-butt heroines better in all of publishing today. And, as an extension LOVE Beast, as well. The writing is unique and distinct between the two characters, yet form one whole that is absolutely awesome!
2. HATE that such a strong character as Jane ...more
To add to the man-undercover-angst, her boss Leo's not too fond of Jane right now (after the events in Blood Cross), so she also has stay-under-the-radar angst. But ...more
I really got to give it to the narrator, Khristine Hvam she is phenomenal!!! Her voice is incredible as Jane, as Beast and even when she switches characters. I don't know if I would truly love these books as much if I was actually reading them. I can't really say much about this one because it would give to much information away, I will say there was more steaminess and a cliffhanger at the end.
I still don't like Jane and since this was already third book in the series, it's becoming a real problem. Even though Jane knew Rick was undercover and probably couldn't contact her, she acted like a teenage girl abandoned by her boyfriend and even though she had a boyfriend, she kept getting wet over Bruiser. I ...more
Eventually Jane will learn not to attend vampire parties, they always end in violence.
Eventually Jane will learn that vampires lie because they are not good people and don't want the fact that they are cold and manipulative to be common knowledge.
Eventually Jane will learn that vampires are emotionally unstable and seem to suffer from universal manic-depression and schizophrenia.
The cliff hanger ending with Ricky Bo is a little on the nose.
You know how to cook steak?" he asked, his voice warming slightly.
"Light a match under it. If it doesn't kick, it's dead and done.
Lucky I found this series, now I have something to read while I wait for the next Kate Daniels and Mercy Thompson book to be ...more
We have werewolves and others big cat shifters.
Jane rhymed her words and almost laughed while giving Leo bad news. He tires to kill her again.
What happened to beast at the end?
