Jane Yellowrock is a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she wishes using necklaces made of feathers and bones. Jane shares her body with a conscious and independent entity (a panther) known simply as 'Beast'. There's markedly less narration from Beast in 'Blood Cross'; I think she was better utilised here with only short snippets from her point of view. In this world the 'Mithrans' or vampires are out to the public as are the witches, with complicated politics and ancient resentments the effects of which can impact all races. At the end of the prior novel Jane was hired by the vampire council in New Orleans to work for them hunting rogue vampires. Here we join Jane as the council asks her to hunt and kill one of their own who has broken some deeply sacred rules. Jane soon finds herself embroiled in some deep rooted politics, the origins of which stretch back thousands of years...

I really enjoyed this book! I had some minor issues with the first one, but found those fixed here. The plot was well paced with some very interesting developments that should be relatively far-reaching in terms of the series -- the story itself was clever and expertly woven with numerous threads of plot coming together at the end. One thing that surprised me was the excellent worldbuilding. I didn't think 'Skinwalker' was particularly original but I don't think that's true anymore; Hunter's worldbuilding was fascinating and unique -- the way she combined vampire history with religion and myth was quite masterful. I was pretty surprised with the idea she went with too, it was nice to see some daring (the good kind of daring) in this genre.

3.5 stars - It's a shame as parts of this series make it brilliant dark urban fantasy which could be 4.5 stars, but there are also parts of it that, for me, made it boring and repetitive at times!

Unfortunately the flaw of the first book with irrelevant lengthy descriptions of things seems to still be here - this time, its that we get subjected to the same information just jumbled around slightly, every time Jane/Beast shift! Yes, we know by now that she goes into a grey space and reaches for the "snake" and her bones... slide and she shifts, changes and there is pain, pain, pain!!!! ...which then leads to a detailed description of the meal she has after she shifts EVERY time. Seriously, I think I read something to that effect about 20 times now between the first two books. Also the description of her shotgun is exactly the same in this one when the marine describes it as when she talked about it in the first book! There were just quite a few things like this that stood out to me where it made me feel I was re-reading the same thing again and again. Although there was a lot of good story in there, don't get me wrong, I still felt like I was skimming irrelevant/repetitive information and it needed a tighter edit.

Something changed in this one too so that I felt Jane wasn't quite so tough as she had been in the first - I really loved that she could fight well, but she seemed to keep getting things happen to her in this one and almost getting killed! So I hope in the future she goes back to being as good as she was in the first book...I don't want her to end up being one of these heroines who is supposed to be tough but needs saving every 5 minutes.

Jane Yellowrock is a Skinwalker, a native Indian woman who can shape-shift into any form she pleases within reason in the right circumstances. That and the fact she is a professional Bounty-Hunter who deals with Monsters drew her to New Orleans in the first book, which is where we catch up with her in the second book. This time around, though, the Vampire Master of the City is unstable after suffering a terrible personal loss as a result of Jane's actions in the first book and, even though she did him a favour doing what she did, he can't quite decide if he wants her dead or not-and she knows she won't be able to stop him if he wants her blood badly enough. On top of that, someone is Creating Vampires without authorisation and carrying out odd Rituals in the process, a situation Jane has to deal with since the Master of the City is currently incapable. Then there's the fact that Jane's Witch friend and her two young children have come to New Orleans to visit "Aunt" Jane, but the fact that Witch blood is being used in the Vampire Rituals means they may not be safe for all the Witches power. Jane's Beast, which considers her friends children it's "Kits", is even less happy about the situation. Just to make things interesting, Jane's house is nearly burnt down by the Master of the City right at the start of the story with her and her friends and "family" inside, her Love life is getting into gear and the Rituals being carried out concerning the new Vampires might just have something to do with the very Origin's of Vampires as a Race...Read more ›
