Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who’s always up for a fight—even if it means putting her life on the line…

The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires—those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted—are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets.

But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill—even for a pro like Jane. Now, her simple job has turned into a fight to stay alive…and to protect the desperately ill child left in her care. (Goodreads)


This is book six in this series and was very enjoyable. I have not read any other stories in this series, while mostly a stand alone book, some of the things going on would have been clearer if I had read some of the other stories. Still a great well written story with interesting characters.

I loved the world and all the different witches, shifters, zombish things , vamps etc…, there were also things not reveled that makes me want to read the next book, to see who and what they are (Soul).

My confusion came about because of the love interests…I couldn’t figure out what was going on or which direction even made any sense. Jane was telling us that Cat shifters don’t mate with just one person, perhaps a set up for menage in later books??? But, Rick was very clear he would kill anyone else that she had an interest in??? Then the binding with the MOC, I was really surprised that no one in any of the reviews I read made a connection to several similarities to Laurell K. Hamilton and her Anita Blake series. This story reminded me of the earlier books in the Anita Blake series, before all the “have to have sex” scenario was added. I hope this series doesn’t go in the same direction because it is really a wonderful story without it going there.

I highly recommend for young adults and adults who enjoy a very well written fantasy with some bite and kick to it.
