Thursday, June 27, 2013
Series: Jane Yellowrock #3
 Publication Date: January 4, 2011
Publisher: Roc
Pages: 305
 Reviewer: Amber R.

Jane is still working for Leo since he extended her contract. But Jane's lack of knowledge about the vamp/supe world is going to get her killed one of these days. Leo, the head of the New Orleans vampires sends Jane to relay a message to some weres that are sniffing around. There are long historical and political lines between the vampires and the werewolves. Nuances that Jane just doesn't understand and no one is looking to enlighten her. Not only that but there are some major players coming to the forefront in this book. Mainly a lot of people from Leo's long and winding past. Jane really needs to brush up on Leo's history for this one.

I'm still a Bruiser fan and I'm going to stay a Bruiser fan. Because let's face it, that man is all kinds of fine. Rick is still on Jane's mind but he's on her mind and nothing else really. After a brief appearance at the beginning of this story he's gone and stay gone through the majority of the book. Now there are some underlying circumstances as to why he isn't coming around. But he hasn't even sent Jane a text message. However, Bruiser is around and he's going no where fast. Bruiser and Jane have more heat in a stupid dance than Jane has ever had with Rick.

Jane is kicking ass and not really taking names. She's out on a mission that's mainly personal because of some major things that happen in this book. Even though she's mainly focusing on one thing, she's easily spun off into other directions. Luckily for Jane they all tie in together. 

I'm absolutely loving this series. I already bought and am delving in to the 4th book.  There is a lot that goes on in this book and I think it's really just too much for Jane. She's feeling guilt over some of the choices she's made and really needing to take a step back and reevaluate. We get left with such a huge cliffhanger in this book, it makes you want to continue right on into the next part of the story. Jane Yellowrock is moving herself right up on my list of favorites. If this is a series you haven't read yet, you're definitely going to need to pick it up.


  1. I recommend the entire series, which starts with Skinwalker. Jane Yellowrock hunts vampires for a living, but she finds herself employed by vampires to deal with problems, both internal and external, that they are unwilling or unable to deal with themselves. Gripping stories. Terrific dialogue. Jane is sassy, with attitude to spare. I am looking forward to future books.

  2. I have yet to read this series, yet another UF! Haha! I hear such good things about it though! :)

    1. UF seems to be right up my alley lately. I'm loving them.

  3. I'm listening to the 2nd book right now; it seems like you're just burning through this series so I'll take that as a good sign!

    1. I really love these books. I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

  4. Sometimes I think I am the only one not reading this series! And I do want to. Thanks for the nice review Amber :)
