Slaying vampires is child’s play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans’ supernatural players is another story...
Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her doorstep. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.
A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit...undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it’s up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war.
Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter
Jane once again is caught up in a magical mystery. There has been random magical attacks made against Jane’s household and spells placed on powerful allies that cause them to randomly attack. Jane and her crew must unravel the mysterious magic users plot before their plans come to fruition.
Meanwhile, a master that has assumed dead is found tortured and barely alive. Who is behind the master’s entrapment?
Once again, we are provided with a meaty mystery that you can really sink your teeth into. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all mystery. There is a lot of action, a healthy layer of romantic heat and plenty interaction with the family of main players we’ve come to love.
If Faith Hunter writes it, I’ll be reading it. It really is that simple. She writes complex characters that grow and evolve. She builds amazing worlds were the fantasy becomes reality and vampires, magic and mayhem live alongside the cities and places you know. She is a brilliant writer with a magical pen, that is my take and I’m sticking to it.
Ten full length novels and this series is still going strong.
