Blood Cross Blood Cross by Faith Hunter
Publisher: ROC
Pages: 335
Review by Pat Garverick
Pat’s Rating 5/5

Blurb:

The vampire council has hired skinwalker Jane Yellowrock to hunt and kill one of their own who has broken sacred ancient rules — but Jane quickly realizes that in a community that is thousands of years old, loyalties run deep…

With the help of her witch best friend and local vigilantes, Jane finds herself caught between bitter rivalries — and closer than ever to the secret origin of the entire vampire race. But in a city of old grudges and dark magic, Jane will have to fight to protect both sides, even if no one will protect her.

Pat’s Review:

Jane Yellowrock, shape shifter, competent with shotguns that are hand-packed with silver fléchette rounds, silver coated knives (vamp killers), stakes that she hides in her braided hair, some poison-tipped, some not, brings justice to the supernaturals that don’t follow the rules. Lots of action. Solid characters. Takes place in New Orleans with great descriptions of the smells, sights, and noises of the wet, humid land.

    Great review! I loved seeing all the characters growing in this book. You love ‘em, you hate ‘em, you love ‘em when you should hate ‘em.

    You zeroed right in on Jane’s love of weapons. But what’s not to love about deadly jewelry? 🙂

    Hunter hits it out of the park with Blood Cross! I was totally hooked by book 1, Skinwalker, but book two might be even better…something hard to do in a follow up book. I love the rich history of the settings, learning about vamp culture, and getting to delve into Jane/Beast’s past. Great review of a wonderful series.
