Cold Reign by Faith Hunter Blog Tour and #Giveaway

Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker…and the woman rogue vampires fear most.

Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.

And there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.

Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…

I flat out love this series.  Faith Hunter never fails to bring a high octane adventure that keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat and reading into the wee-hours of the morning.  

I love watching the dynamics between Jane and her family by choice grow and evolve.  COLD REIGN is packed full of this character growth and new and exciting developments that I've come to expect and love from Hunter.

Sure to delight any urban fantasy fan, check out COLD REIGN.


  1. Obviously, judging by the cover, Jane is a very focused individual, and that is certainly an admirable trait, within reason.

  2. Beast!!! love this series :) i'm a few books behind but I'm happy to catch up. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Jane is focused but also worthy of our admiration in her ability to mess up like the best of us.

  4. Cannot wait to get my hands on Cold Reign! Unlike a lot of series I've read, each book is better than the last! Here's hoping Faith keeps writing Jane's stories for many, many years!!

    1. Angie is completely right about about this series getting better and better. Faith's books always have a fully built world supporting them, interesting character development with each character having his or her own dialogue expressions. I also am eager to read the new installment and then listen to it on Audible, where the music of each character's is more livid.

  5. The author does an incredible job showing Jane's growth as a person. One of my favorite UF series.

  6. Each new segment of Jane/Beast's life ends too soon, leaving me breathless and waiting impatiently for the next book release. Superbly written. Sqeee, Faith! Alisha Henri

  7. Beast/Jane are my favs, strong, determined, quirky, feisty, unrelenting, amazing characters

  8. I love this series! It is one I highly recommend.

  9. Wow, way more about him than we've seen in the books so far - looking forward to seeing more character profiles.


  10. I love Jane/beast she is by far the most awesome character in the series and the vampires of course.

  11. I love Jane and get "brothers". They have a great chemistry and is nice for Jane to have them at her back.

  12. Like watching Jane grow.. and that it takes place in NOLA is also fantastic

  13. Jane and Bruiser are my favorite characters in the series.

  14. Fabulous! I am so excited for this to come out! Super fascinated by Gregorie!

  15. I love Jane's strength. Not just the physical, but in so many areas!

  16. I love her integrity. She is a strong woman and amazing role model.

  17. Jane Yellowrock and her chosen family of the heart never cease to keep me up into the predawn wee hours. You will not regret getting hooked on this world. Nothing is ever formulaic and you always want the next book yesterday. Faith Hunter is a really talented author who delivers a home run every time.

  18. I love Jane, and Beast is BEST! 'Nuff said. ;-)

    Among the menfolk that are involved in her life, my favorite is Bruiser (Book 8! *happy sigh*). Though I also have a great love for Troll. . .and Eli! (*swoon*) :-)

    I am really looking forward to Cold Reign. Can't wait!

  19. I love how Jane has grown and become more comfortable with the people in her life. I can't wait to read this next book in this series

  20. I haven't read any of the Jane books but she sounds tough and smart, and those are qualities I like in a character.

  21. Beast is the Best...but the entire world, cast, crew make this a must read, like belonging to the group.
