Synopsis:
New York Times bestselling author Faith Hunter presents a comprehensive collection of stories starring everyone’s favorite “smart, sexy, and ruthless”* shapeshifting skinwalker...

In this must-have collection of stories, experience nineteen thrilling adventures from the world of vampire-hunter Jane Yellowrock, including many fan favorites and two all-new novellas. Read about the first time Jane put the pedal to the metal in “The Early Years,” and the last thing a werewolf will ever see as Jane delivers justice in “Beneath a Bloody Moon.” Get a searing look into the pasts of some of the series’ best-loved characters: Beast in “WeSa and the Lumber King,” Rick LaFleur in “Cat Tats,” and Molly Everhart Trueblood in “Haints.”

In the brand-new “Cat Fight,” the witches and vampires of Bayou, Oiseau, are at war over a magical talisman—and Jane must figure out how to keep the mysterious artifact out of the covetous hands of the Master of New Orleans. And in the never-before-published “Bound No More,” Jane welcomes a visit from Molly and her daughter, Angie, who is about to prove she’s the most powerful witch in Everhart history....

From the Big Easy to the bad bayou, from the open road to a vampire’s lair—with Jane Yellowrock, it’s always a given: have stakes, will travel.

My Review:

I had just finished a marathon re-read of the Jane Yellowrock series, so Blood In Her Veins: Nineteen Stories From the World of Jane Yellowrock could not have come at a better time.

There are some series you just can’t get enough of and for me Jane Yellowrock is one of them! Blood In Her Veins gives you the perfect opportunity to sate that need. If my re-reading didn’t give it away, I’m a BIG fan. So, it won’t come as a surprise to you that I gobbled up all these marvelous novella length stories that gave me just a little more from this world I love.

The absolute icing on the cake was the secondary character stories. Wonder no longer, you get to know these fabulous characters that have always taken a back seat to the main hero and heroine.

Bottom line, all Jane Yellowrock fans should not miss Blood In Her Veins. If you never have checked out the series this book is a great opportunity to get a feel for this world.

I received this ARC copy of Blood In Her Veins from Let’s Talk! Promotions via Berkley Publishing Group - Roc in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Feb. 2, 2015.

  2. Thanks for pointing out that the novellas flesh out the book stories with background and perspective on the stories by secondary (though important) characters. I'm looking forward to the two entirely NEW novellas!

  6. Isn't it amazing when you become attached, not just to the main character in a book, but even characters that only show briefly. Faith does it with the JY world,. I've been waiting on this book for months!
