Revue de presse

Praise for the novels of Faith Hunter:

“A new, strongly unique voice in the dark fantasy genre.” —New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison

Présentation de l'éditeur

Jane Yellowrock is a shapeshifting skinwalker you don’t want to cross—especially if you’re one of the undead…

For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

Now, to uncover the identity of the vamp who wants Leo’s territory, and to find the cause of the vamp-plague, Jane will have to go to extremes…and maybe even to war.

excellent, suspense toujours maintenu, l'animation est constante, certaines choses ne sont dévoilées que vers la fin, c'est une excellente héroïne.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I love Beast and....and...and well I love Beast. 12 mars 2017
Par Robin Snyder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Oh Jane I want to love you but you make it really hard sometimes. At least I always love beast.

Honestly I was the most engaged in this book for various reasons and I had probably my strongest emotional reaction to this one so I think that in ways FH’s writing is getting a better but I struggle with Jane’s incessant need to take responsibility for abso-freaking-lutely everything. If a meteor hit near New Orleans I’m sure Jane would find a way to make it her fault and her responsibility to clean up.

I’ll mention the good here and then I’m going to rant for awhile *clears throat*

The bad guy. We don’t get a ton of time with him but his entire power play in an effort to take over various vampires territory is really different and interesting. Using illness to make the vampires so weak they need to concede to his rule to receive an antidote was a new take that I hadn’t seen before in a UF book so far.

I loved seeing Sabina and her role on the vampire council. She is amazing and I really want to learn more about both her and Bethany since they are both outclan and we get a glimpse of what that means here.

There is also the addition of Eli and his brother to Jane’s inner circle. I like those two and it looks like Eli has no intention of getting mixed up in Jane’s love life so I hope he will be a good friend to her and his little brother a.k.a. ‘The Kid’ will offset all the dark characters lingering in Jane’s life. They seem like work wise they can be a good team and be totally on Team Jane as opposed to Derek who also seems to work for Jane, himself and Leo depending on the situation.

The reveals about Jane’s past and what happened to the rest of the skinwalkers was also a nice addition to the story and did give her some purpose in the fight against the big bad unknown vampire in town.

Ranting in

3….

2….

1….

I have a few issues with this book and this series is general. I haven’t read any of the short stories in-between books and so when we go into this and Jane says that her relationship with Rick is completely over, Molly isn’t her friend anymore and she has left Leo’s service to I seriously went back to see if I accidentally skipped a book.

But nope I was on the right book I’m just missing the shorts in-between and so I have no context for most of that and it really isn’t explained it is just dropped and then we are moving on.

I was actually really happy that the Rick debacle was supposedly over. I’ve hated that dude from book 1. But nope he shows up later this book too and we are back to the oh he is so cute I think I love him we can find a way to be together. *throw up in my mouth a little*. No just no. I’m so over the love triangle quadrangle that is this series. Pick a dick, pick a chick, pick to be celibate the rest of your life if these are your choices but decide already. Jane had thoughts that she was in love with Bruiser and Rick in this book I HATE that part of this story. I think it is time for beast to take charge and sleep with all of them and then decide. Just kidding I really hate love triangles and Jane seems to think every guy out there is sex on a stick.

Why is Jane still with Leo in New Orleans??? I don’t get it she is miserable. She talks about how much she doesn’t like the person she is becoming and how horrible everything is. She was a rogue vampire hunter there have to be some rogue vamps somewhere else you think that she would do that instead of taking everything as her responsibility so she must stay and help Leo (who I remind you has tried to kill her more than once). *Throws hands in the air* why are you still there.

Okay and now we come to The Thing. Look I am of the opinion you hang out with Vamps or anything long enough and stuff just becomes normal. If you put yourself in that kind of proximity to them then yes at some point you are going to get burned. I still hated what Leo did to Jane. It was wrong on so many levels especially since she had recently saved him from something similar. I don’t blame Bruiser, if anything I feel so sorry for him and hope this is the wake up event he needed to see that if he is with Leo he can never have Jane. I feel bad for Jane too she played with fire and got burned but both lost trust in things they took for granted when ‘the thing’ happened. Beast is smart after this happened and she knows how to win in the long run.

*** Beast lost much here. Beast lost winter food. Beast lost meat. Hissed thought, Lost to pack. Tonight Jane lost to pack. Bruiser lost to pack. But Jane is not pack. Bruiser is not pack. Jane is Jane and Bruiser is Bruiser. I batted a rib bone hard with paw. It spun into dark and landed in brush. There is no shame in losing to pack with strong alpha. Shame is from not fighting again when pack is smaller, when pack-alpha is not expecting attack. Only shame is giving up. ***

I wish that the character relationships were stronger in this series. Most of the time I think that many things can be cleared up with a simple conversation but it never happens and I wonder how long Ms Hunter plans on dragging out certain plot arcs.

I need Jane to grow up a little and take charge of her personal life. She can kill and maim and hurt but she needs to balance that with a few other life skills. Even when others are telling her that she isn’t responsible for certain things she still claims them.

The ending with Rick is again something I just toss my hands up in the air and say “REALLY?” It needed to go down like that??? *Sigh, double sigh*. Rick is an utter jerk 90% of the time but Jane is clueless when it comes to other people. But maybe this means that we have really seen the last of him. At least that is my hope.

Since I’m reading this with a group I’m continuing on. Maybe just because it is so fun to argue and rant with them. But if I were reading it on my own I’d probably drop it and wander off to read some Kate Daniels so my faith in the Urban Fantasy Heroine could be restored.

I enjoy all the books in the series, especially the relationship between Jane and her Beast. Or should I say Beast, not "her Beast". The best part about this series is the lack of the main character sleeping around constantly, and the fact that she doesn't curse every other word and the author made some attempts at her having some morality or faith based convictions. Even if she struggles with her faith, it is nice to read a series that doesn't bash it outright for once. Thanks Faith Hunter, I can't tell you how refreshing I find that in this genre. For these reasons, I will always be a Jane Yellowrock fan. Fantastic character, and I love the setting.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The best in the series so far. 22 octobre 2015
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
From a somewhat mediocre start this series has improved quite a lot. This book is a good mix of action, urban fantasy and research. I do like Jane’s new companions and I do especially like that she has become quite a bad-ass.

Anyway, with that frustration out of the way, I quite liked this book. As I wrote, Jane has become quite a bit of a bad-ass and she is indeed dealing out quite a bit of pain in this book. As usual the book is a mixture of action and investigative work. This time trying to track down the mysterious vampire (or should I say Mithran) decease and who is behind it.

The quest leads her on path that culminates in a somewhat spectacular confrontation with an ancient enemy of the skinwalkers. I quite liked this. The build up was well done, the action was well done, the final confrontation was well done.

Then I have to have to say that things went a bit sour. It feels a bit like the author desperately tried to create some final moments of tension. I would have been quite happy with the book more or less ending after the final clobbering between the vampire factions and the bad guy getting what deserved.

I would have been quite happy even after the very final revelation, which I have to say I did not see coming, but that shooting interlude just to mess things up between Jane and one of her (many) boyfriends just felt tiresome.

Bottom line is that I definitely think this book was the best in the series so far. Now I am looking forward to the next instalment in the series.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Steady storytelling ...as always. 28 novembre 2016
Par Blue Yonder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm not sure if amazing is the right word. But this series has been a steady source of entertainment. If I really think about it, it is reminiscent of Buffy the vampire slayer, mixed in with Indian culture and a side of magic. This amalgamation of things just seems to work, combined with your standard gum shoe crime solving formula that I personally prefer. I won't give it five stars because it won't win any literary prizes, and it isn't fraught with multiple metaphors and literary allusions to draw the reader into a deeper world of magic. However, it excels at what it is meant to be....a fun ride and a literary form of modern fantasy serials. With that in mind, this and every other book in the series thus far are highly recommended.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Tawney and coiled like a Jaguar ready to strike 9 avril 2017

Tawney and coiled like a Jaguar ready to strike. Jane is a truly heroic and admirable female character that young adult and teen age girls would be proud to emulate. I love the multi layers of this book, not only the main story of hunting of the insane vampire, but of the missing years of Janes childhood. When everything is finally revealed some major shocks are in order andd,,,,,,,no I won't tell you no secrets lol.
