Review

Praise for Faith Hunter:  

“Faith Hunter has created one of my favorite characters, ever. Jane Yellowrock is full of contradictions.”—Fresh Fiction

“A lot of series seek to emulate Hunter’s work, but few come close to capturing the essence of urban fantasy: the perfect blend of intriguing heroine, suspense, [and] fantasy with just enough romance…”—SF Site

“Jane Yellowrock is smart, sexy, and ruthless.”—New York Times Bestselling Author Kim Harrison

About the Author

A native of Louisiana, Faith Hunter spent her early years on the bayous and rivers, learning survival skills and the womanly arts. She liked horses, dogs, fishing and crabbing much better than girly skills. She still does. In grade school, she fell in love with fantasy and science fiction, reading five books a week and wishing she could "write that great stuff." Faith now shares her life with her Renaissance Man and their dogs in a Enclave of their own.

Summary: Contrary to Leo's wishes, Jane heads out to Natchez, MS to help with rogue vampires. A problem where Naturaleza vampires, those that want unlimited human cattle, have "disappeared" over 100 people. Can she and her friends stop the bad guys? Bad guys that are not what they seem...

Review: Action, fantasy, romance, self-evaluation, forgiveness. All of these elements appear in Jane Yellowrock's newest tale by Faith Hunter.

Blood Trade is a novel of beginnings and spiritual awareness. We left Jane in Death's Rival without her former friends and lovers, and she was chained to Leo. And in the beginning of this book, she despaired her conditions. But through her new friends, the Younger brothers, and a new job, Jane emerged stronger and better. Many threads were resolved, and Jane started to understand herself and those around her. We also learn more about vampires and their origins. I'm curious to see how this knowledge will affect everyone when Leo finds out she knows.

Jane is not a heroine in heels who never make mistakes. She is flawed and makes mistakes. However, Jane's appeal is that her character never stops learning and growing. She had many spiritual realizations in this book, and also found out that her life since she came to New Orleans might not have been a coincidence. Jane is tough to forgive, not only others, but also herself. She is difficult, but that is what makes her relatable.

Jane's friends and foes are also complex and enjoyable to read. Bruiser is by far my favorite, especially now that he's undergone many changes. The Younger brothers become indispensable to Jane, and we meet people from her past. She starts to understand the meaning of family. Rick and his PsyLED friends show up to lend a hand, and we learn more about Soul.

Jane Yellowrock is a one-of-a-kind heroine that reflects a female "tough-as-nails" persona that appeals to readers of all ages and genres. The popularity of this series is unquestioned as is the quality of the writing, Ms Hunter has brought to life a character that embodies shape-shifters with Cherokee heritage plus a dose of vampires and a bit of other nastiness to top it off. Like I said, nothing's like it and if there is another one that I have missed it obviously is not as well written and addictive as this series is to those of us that have followed her though all the installments.

This installment is as good or better than most and I hope Faith Hunter can continue to create and write these novels for many more years. I still tire of the on/off relationship with Rick but that keeps going and I am still waiting on some revenge for the actions of Leo and Bruiser, my revenge junkie was not happy :)

(UPDATE: Faith Hunter replied to my complaints about a lack of revenge with this info about the next book : "I just wrote the revenge scene, Douglas Meeks. It was ... lovely. And best served cold...")

This book starts off as a two star novel. In the first half of the book, the author tries to write a mystery, an emotional woman struggling with her independence in the new world, and a travelogue of how picturesque the deep south can be. These types of books are not my favorite and the author is mediocre at all these types of writing.

Not until the second half does the author return to a strong heroine fighting evil, and kicking a**. The second half returns to a five star rock sockem on the edge of your seat page turner. Since this is the last thing you read it leaves you feeling good about the book. But when I sat down to review I remembered how disappointed I was with the beginning of the book.

The author is trying to develop an unrealistic character in Eli, the ex soldier/ranger working with Jane. He is morphing into a Batman like fighter, able to take on vamps one on one, and with a kill count approaching Jane. This undermines the premise of the series, that Jane's skinwalker skills give her the needed advantage to fight the baddies on an equal basis. I am not opposed to a human champion; but feels it is not consistent with the world created to date and I dislike stories that are not consistent with their own rules. Miss Esme resonates more believably, as a civilian who gets captured almost immediately once she meddles with vamps.

In order to give Jane more of a fight the author keeps throwing powers at her enemies. But this starts to seem silly as many times you sense that if only one more vamp had been there Jane would be dead. And there are lots of bad vamps in town. So why are they too stupid to bring enough firepower together?

Since this is very early in the book's release (I got my Kindle download at midnight and as a result got very little sleep!) this review will remain a bit vague to avoid spoilers, but I will share my impressions.

The action packed Skinwalker series continues to grab readers from the start and pull you right into the story. Jane Yellowrock, a shape changing, Harley riding, snarky, Cherokee skinwalker who shares her soul with a mountain lion simply known as Beast, has a little problem. In a nutshell, vampires. Normally, she hunts them, but now she is stuck working for them. But, hey, even rogue vampire killing, security expert bodyguard/bounty hunter gals have off days, right?

Intense action and detailed world building are always key elements in Hunter's books and this one is no different. It takes us away from the now familiar New Orleans setting to a richly described Natchez, Mississippi on a new case. This time it is hunting an even more dangerous type of rogue vamp than usual. This one is not held in check by vamp law or custom, but believes in the Naturaleza, which pretty much means he has been going postal on humans, that humans are nothing more than prey. Supported by a returning cast of interesting secondary characters, Jane finds herself coordinating with her ex, now a federal agent, to try and solve the case before any more are hurt.

Amidst all the action and mystery, Jane continues her spiritual journey to unlock bits of her past that have been affecting her current day actions. I think Jane is finally coming to grips with her past in this book and it is encouraging to see her getting back to her old form and choosing new paths. There is still a lot of room for growth and discovery in new books, but this is a good start.
