Praise for the Jane Yellowrock Novels
“Faith Hunter has created one of my favorite characters, ever. Jane Yellowrock is full of contradictions...Highly recommended.”—Fresh Fiction
“Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series is a high-octane urban fantasy that follows its own rules.”—Smexy Books
“Hunter’s very professionally executed, tasty blend of dark fantasy, mystery, and romance should please fans of all three genres.”—Booklist
“Jane is a fully realized, complicated woman; her power, humanity, and vulnerability make her a compelling heroine. The fight scenes are exciting and the New Orleans setting is absorbing, but it’s the ever-evolving bond between Jane and her Beast personality that keeps this fun series fresh.”—Publishers Weekly

Cold Reign is Jane Yellowrock at it's best. This was another fantastic addition to this series.
If you want a definition of Urban Fantasy, you have it in Faith Hunter's work. After eleven books she has not lost her touch if anything I want to read more about her characters and their evolution.
Jane Yellowrock started as a solo heroine. Now, she is part of a family which includes the two Younger brothers, Ed, Bruiser, Molly and Co, and now Brute. It seems some home renovations are in order. She might consider a bigger home too since she keeps on adding more people to her "clan".
So what evil is Jane fighting this time? Well, it seems like the Revenant Vamps are back. They are popping up in different places in New Orleans and killing humans without a care. The European Vamps might be behind their attack. Jane as Leo Pellisier's enforcer is responsible for cleaning the area of the nasty revenant vamps. She's also Leo's security team and of course, Leo never makes things easy by hiding so much from Jane. I do agree with her, she must show him some manners. He pissed me off big time here. Or maybe, she should let Beast do the talking. He's really asking for it.
In regards to the romance, If you had read my prior reviews you know I'm a huge Bruiser lover. He's still perfect for Jane in my eyes. I'm very happy Mrs. Hunter makes it extremely clear who deserves Jane in this book.
"I love you more than bacon."
Cold Reign is an unstoppable action-packed book. From the moment it begins, poor Jane and her friends don't get enough sleep or good food. I was devouring the pages in a desperate attempt to find out what Janie was going to encounter. I feared for everyone's lives in this one. No one seems to be safe. My heart was in my throat too many times.
I can honestly recommend this book 100% to any UF lover.
Missing from this installment is the overdone introspection of some of the recent books, we have some but it does play a part and the mystical part of Jane's nature is part of why we read this series since Jane Yellowrock is one of a very few totally original characters in urban fantasy.
The plots and subplots are so many and so involved it made my head hurt to try to keep up with things but Faith Hunter weaved them all together by the end (and gave us a couple more to ponder for the next book). Make no mistake, the long awaited arrival of the European vampires is here and it is not a friendly visit.
Clan Yellowrock is gaining members, there are some surprises and some long sought after justice. The whole book is a plot we never saw coming (or at least I never did) and leaves you in a good place (another thing I love, no cliffhangers) but after 11 books I still cannot figure Leo out and what motivates his actions.
Bottom Line: A GREAT book, full of action, full of surprises, characters that grow a little in each book (as opposed to series I have read where the characters never seem to get any smarter or mature). Overall I think this may be one of the better books out of the last 4-5 because of the balance of action, multiple characters involvement, just a small bit of introspection and the sign of a really good book, you hated to see it end. This is NOT the same Jane Yellowrock we discovered 11 books ago, this is a improved version who is not only stronger, she is also becoming a power in her own right in this world. 5 Stars and can't wait to see more.
Cold Reign starts by exploring Jane and her adopted family. Then builds to non stop action,as the European vampires arrive in secret and with the help of traitors, try to take over Leo's city. And there is a magic driven storm that threatens to finish what Katrina started.
The Younger brothers are in the thick of things, with Alex showing a new maturity, Eli opening up about his military experience, and the emotional scars he still carries. Edmund, Gee, Gregoire and Brute play key roles in the fight against the Europeans. Jane's relationship with Bruiser deepens, and PsyLed Agent Rick Le Fleur returns and tries to apologize for past sins. Leo is his usual manipulative self, and some of is actions, or lack of action, suggest he's still playing the long game. Jane's angel makes an appearance, and there are cameos from Soul, Opal and several of their "sisters". An number of evil vampires meet their well deserved end.
Cold Reign is a great addition to the popular Jane Yellowrock series. The writing is superb, plotting complex, with compelling characters. All of the things that author Faith Hunters does so well. Another 5 star effort from Ms. Hunter.
If you have never read the series, it might be better to start with the first book Skinwalker, and enjoy the books in order as this complex story unfolds. ***Warning. Readers of Skinwalker often experience sudden onset binge reading. Enjoy!
