Skinwalker: A Jane Yellowrock Novel

Reviewed by Breia Brickey

A year ago Jane nearly lost her life taking down an entire blood family of deadly rogue vampires that preyed on the helpless local populace of an Appalachian town. Now, after months of recuperation, she’s back and ready to fight again. Except this time, she’s hired by those she’s trained to kill—vampires…

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. Back from hiatus, she’s 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.

Amidst a bordello full of real “ladies of the night,” and a hot Cajun biker with a panther tattoo who stirs her carnal desire, Jane must stay focused and complete her mission—or else the next skin she’ll need to save just may be her own…

I started reading this novel and enjoyed it so much that I had to find out everything I could about this author. The pacing was spot on, the characters were very likable and the action was intense. The story itself was awesome to read and left me wanting more. Skinwalker is a wonderful welcome addition to my bookshelves and I look forward to more stories from Faith Hunter to fill even more space there. I highly recommend this story. I think the true mark of a good story is that you don't realize how much time you spent sucked into the story until the very last word.

I can't wait to add this to Mt Git'r'Read! I know it won't be on there long. I've looked forward to reading this for a while.

One of the problems with having others reviewers helping out is that I don't get to read everything I want. Like Skinwalker!

So pattepoilue and Vickie please enjoy! I'll have to get my hands on another copy somehow!
