Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jane Yellowrock is a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires using necklaces made of feathers and bones. But Jane isn't just any shapeshifter; she shares her body with a conscious and independent entity (a panther) known as Beast. How she and Beast became one is one of the central plots of the book as Jane has a shady memory and can't recall a great deal of her past. Bits and pieces are revealed in 'Skinwalker' but a lot is left for future outings. Beast even narrates some chapters when Jane shifts -- these are written quite choppily in 'beast language', in short fragmented sentences. I found it difficult to read at first but you do get used to it.

In 1962 vampires were outed when Marilyn Monroe was caught trying to turn the president of the United States. Witches are also known to humans and magic users are kept track of by a government body. Today, heightened shapeshifter instincts give Jane an advantage in her profession of hunting rogue vampires. Jane is hired by a member of the vampire council in New Orleans, Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires around and madam of her very own brothel to hunt a powerful and elusive rogue vampire. The rogue has left a trail of bloody bodies and it's Jane's job to catch the sucker.

The characters Jane and Molly were first introduced in a short story in the Strange Brew anthology but it's unnecessary to have read it. Jane herself is basically Mercy Thompson meets Kate Daniels. Inexplicably I became quite attached to her. There were times when I was ready to put this book down without finishing it but I kept coming back, there was just something about Jane I really liked.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
At last - another strong, capable heroine who doesn't dissolve into brainless mush at the first sight of an attractive man! Jane Yellowrock is more than able to defend herself and she works alone (apart from some input from Beast - who I rate!), and is damn good at what she does. Sure she'd like a man in her life but she's not going to let herself be seduced by a pretty face (or body), nor by powerful vampires who want to know just what she is. There are several strong female characters in this novel - the police officer, the shaman, Katie, Mollie, with only the head-honcho vampire Leo to balance that - the romance interest is very undeveloped, especially as Jane first flattens him, and then saves his butt big time... A sequel definitely beckons from the ending, and while a lot of her history with Beast emerges, there has to be more.
There are a lot of urban fantasy books coming out with female leads who are meant to be sassy, but sadly most are poor, with really, really stupid women you want to shake, who go all stupid the minute the love interest appears. This isn't like that one little bit. Well worth the read.

This review is for the series up to book 6. Jane Yellowrock inhabits a world where vampires and witches are “out” but other supernatural creatures are still in the closet. Jane is a Skinchanger, a Cherokee shaman able to assume the form of animals, and her body houses two souls, her human self and the soul of Beast, a mountain lion who attacked Jane in her childhood and got “sucked” into Jane’s body. A security professional, bodyguard and stakes-for-hire bounty hunter, Jane makes her living bringing down rogue vampires. Vampire society is of course the bog standard mafia-meets-regency-ton. Jane is called by the Master Vampire of New Orleans who keeps her on retainer throughout the books, and pays her lots of danger money for enforcing his gang law.

Jane is a very pleasing character, original, well-crafted, likable, skilled and deadly. The Vamps are suitably fangy and terrifying, even the “nice” ones. The books are so packed full of weapons specifications I’m surprised there isn’t a greek letter in the title somewhere. and Jane holds her own with a supporting cast of ex-marines, and renfield bodyguards. There is gore in spades. Maybe too much. There’s only so much hewing off of vampire heads I can take at one sitting. What let this series down for me was the complete lack of sexual tension Jane and any of the possible beaus. It would have been better to leave it out altogether. There’s no chemistry, and no passion, especially by the later books. She hooks up with one of them - the least interesting, only to obsess a bit before shooting up some buildings. I honestly couldn’t care less about the relationship - because clearly Jane couldn’t care less. She would rather oil her weapons and sharpen her stakes.

This was my first book from Faith Hunter, bought just because of curiosity but I must tell that I enjoyed her Jane Yellowrock character so much that I intent to buy more books. The book is nicely written, the story is entertaining and again there is some new view to vampires and weres. It is really worth to read if you like such stories, strong and interesting woman fighting the bad asses. :-)
