Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jane Yellowrock is back at it again for this third book in the series. Though things start out a bit slow with Jane and her boyfriend Rick out of town in the Appalachian mountains, it quickly heats up. After seeing startling media reports that show Weres (particularly werecats in the beginning) are finally coming out in the open, they are both called back to duty in New Orleans. Jane continues her duties as an employee of Leo, the Master Vampire of the city, and Rick continues his as an undercover cop. Though they apparently began growing close over their one month relationship, this latest crisis certainly puts a strain.

Upon arriving back, Rick quickly disappears to his undercover job and Jane is requested to head up security for upcoming talks among the supernatural creatures. Other duties and tasks quickly pile up as she gets into the swing of things and, as usual, nothing in her job goes exactly as planned. In the aftermath of some bloody battles, she is forced to work quickly to solve mysteries that have a far more reaching impact than she has faced yet. New creatures and secondary characters add to her growing list of troubles, but add also to the excitement. The action is as deadly and bloody as previous books. Jane is left with little time to recover before the next confrontation begins keeping the reader in suspense. This latest installment brings back many of the characters seen before and delves further into their backgrounds. While some questions are answered, many more are brought out. Janes ability to keep her identity a secret will also become difficult. She is exposed to more supernatural races and they join the others in being suspicious of her nature.

Though I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, there are two main problems I would mention.

The third book in the Jane Yellowrock series does not disappoint.

The book starts off with the Supernatural world getting bigger with the Werewolves and Werecats coming out of the closet, this in turns throws out a bunch of problems for the Vamps and hence Jane. To top it off her boyfriend, Rick disappears whilst undercover.

I did enjoy this book, but there is quite a lot to absorb - new characters, new species, more lore, quite a few plot lines.

Annoyingly, this book had an amazing ending which leaves you wanting more - like right now!

If you liked the other books, then you will love this, maybe not just for the storylines, but for the character development and flashbacks/insight into Jane's past, oh and tensions between Jane and Bruiser.

I feel I must point out I'm definitely a Team Rick (despite some events in this book...)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Faith Hunter is an interesting author - its not always a straightforward read - a bit of concentration required, which is because sometimes she goes a bit off piste. Her Jane Yellowrock series is a lot more user friendly and enjoyable than her Rogue Mage series some of which is mad. Jane is a skinwalker and thus can shift into animal form which aids her investigations into the trials and tribulations of the local vampire community in which she seems to be increasingly involved. The romance angle hasn't been at the forefront in this series as some other urban fantasy tales. The 2 interests are cop Rick and vampire associate Bruiser. Hey I'm with Bruiser. I find Rick way too sleazy.

Hooked straight away.... love the thrills, the secrets, the twists and turns. The tension, love and anguish that builds from the characters you learn to love and sometimes hate, is fantastic.

I'd advise you to read this excellent series in order.
Skinwalker
Blood Cross
Mercy Blade.

This is the 3rd in the series and it just gets better. This is urban fantasy, with a likeable heroine, who isn't too tough or too hard or even too damaged. She's funny, kind, sexy and kick-ass! But, and this is a big thing for me in urban fantasy, there aren't the long drawn out sex scenes that you get in some fantasy books, there's romance and the odd sex scene, but they aren't all consuming, and they are well written and fit with the story. This is the story first, building in excellent characters throughout.

This book starts with the were population 'coming out' to the World. As security advisor to the big vamp boss, it's Jane's job to make sure all goes well. Obviously it doesn't - cumulating in lots of fights, Jane's new boyfriend going missing, and Jane working with the gorgeous Bruiser, and the fabulous ex-Marines led by Derek Lee to help fix all the problems.

Vampires, Were's and Witches (oh my!) and the excellent Jane Yellowrock, a skinwalker.

I read all three books in 2 days, and I loved them. If you like the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, or the Toby Daye series by Seanan Maguire, then I hope you'll love this series as well.

Yet again, another fantastic read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and know that Faith Hunter has set the bar on Urban Fantasy. Can't wait to start the next book.
