This Blog and others will be doing a series read along of the Jane Yellowrock Series by Faith Hunter. There will be a new review/spot light on the next book in the series every Tuesday. Ending on April 2 with the release of the latest book in the series. Blood Trade.
Today’s book is Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock #1) with a review written by Mud. Visit her blog Muddy Meanderings!
Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she’s been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps…
I am a sucker for science-based urban fantasy. When the story is firmly grounded in physics but takes it one step further to develop a complex world I am hooked.
Faith has managed to explain the great mystery as to where mass goes during a shape shift and other mysteries. She brings the typical cast of supernatural characters to her story, but they are dark creatures, no sparkling vampires.
Jane Yellowrock is maybe the last of her kind, a shapeshifting Cherokee skinwalker who uses her abilities to bounty hunt vampires.
I was pulled into the story and enjoyed the character development and attention to detail.
