Holy crap....
Shattered Bonds - Faith Hunter

I used to read a lot of urban fantasy but sort of drifted away for some reason. This is one series I continue to read because of the great characters who stalk, stake & chomp their way through a New Orleans full of vamps, grindylows & skinwalkers. And if the human residents seem a tad nervous….well, perhaps that’s down to being viewed as potential snack food.

 

At the heart of it all is Jane Yellowrock, a shape shifting skinwalker who made her name as a vamp killer. She’s usually a force to be reckoned with but after events in the last book, Jane is now a shadow of her former kickass self. A hard won battle & weird magic left her fatally ill. To buy herself time, Jane packed up her crew & moved to a large estate in the Appalachian Mountains. Unfortunately it might not be far enough as there are those who’ld prefer she died sooner rather than later.

 

You know what it’s like when you’re sick…you just wish people would leave you alone. Whereas we might deal with demanding kids or an impatient boss, Jane is being pestered by an ancient vamp affectionately known as the Son of Darkness (SOD).

 

When the former Master of the City died, Jane inherited control of New Orleans & all who live there. She sent in a polite “Thanks, but no thanks” but it seems SOD didn’t get the memo. Now he’s on his way with a horde of undead to seize power & chow down on anyone who gets in his way.

 

This can only be described as epic. The battle scenes & political machinations will have fans nervously chewing their nails to the quick. The story is given depth by the inclusion of European history, First Nations folklore & ancient religions. It goes without saying not everyone will survive & frequent injections of humour give you a moment to catch your breath. It’s a world that jumps off the page in full colour & the author provides some answers to long running subplots. Characters are diverse & fully developed whether they be furry, fanged or human. 

 

It’s an entertaining spin on the classic tale of good vs. evil that’s hard to put down. Just a heads up: if you haven’t read this series before, don’t begin here. This is book #13 & there is a complex story arc jam packed with story lines that lead to events in this instalment. Whatever Jane faces next, it won’t be boring. Here’s hoping she gets a well earned nap first.

Shapeshifting skinwalker Jane Yellowrock is the best in the business when it comes to slaying vampires. But her latest fanged foe may be above her pay grade…

 

For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it’s definitely personal.

 

Jane is tasked with tracking him down. With the help of a tech wiz and an ex-Army ranger, her partners in Yellowrock Securities, she’ll have to put everything on the line, and hope it’s enough. Things are about to get real hard in the Big Easy.

Dark Heir is book nine in the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter. 

 

Jane and the Younger brothers find themselves in trouble again all due to the Master of New Orleans, Leo. In this novel they are trying to stop a crazy old vampire that Leo had chained up in his basement. Vampire politics are involved and Jane can’t just stake the vampire and be done, nope he has to be alive in someway. 

 

Leo. He’s one of those characters that’s not quit good and not quit evil. All the vampires in this series are pretty much in the same area as Leo, with a few of them more evil then others. Leo’s a frustrating man and Jane’s problems are all because of him and his secrets, but that’s the vampire game he plays. I don’t know why Jane doesn’t just stake him for good and be done! She has staked him a few times, but he’s not anymore dead then before. 

 

There’s a lot of emotional and relationship stuff going on for Jane in this novel. The Younger Brothers are becoming more of a family to Jane then partners. Molly, her BFF, visits and she is walking the line between a good and bad witch plus their friendship is still on rocky ground. Then we have George aka Bruiser. He and Jane seem to be heading in the right direction for their relationship. I like seeing them together. I also really love the Younger Brothers. They are fun and I love seeing them with Jane. Last, I really enjoy Jane and Beast; especially seeing them grow and the challenges they face. 

 

The one thing I could have done without is Ricky. He still pops up, but this time it’s just a phone call and Jane has the right reaction to it, but still I just want him gone and not popping up in anyway. 

 

Dark Heir was another exciting action-packed adventure in the Jane Yellowrock series. 

 

Rated: 4 Stars

This book has 3 Christmas Novellas included in it.

A CHRISTMAS ABDUCTION by Madeline Hunter
When Adam Prescott, Baron Thornhill is abducted by Caroline Dunham that is when the fun begins.  Caro thinks that Adam is guilty of a certain action and she wants to set the record straight....too bad in the meantime she ends up falling for him.  This story was so fun and I just adored Caro.  She is a go getter and is not afraid of much!   4 Stars

A PERFECT MATCH by Sabrina Jeffries
We finally get Cassandra Isles story...she is Thorn's twin sister.  When Colonel Lord Heywood shows up at a ball to warn his friend's sister, Katherine "Kitty" Nickman about Captain Lionel Malet, Heywood never would have thought he'd fall in love with her cousin, Cass.  After all he always thought he was in love with Kitty and her wonderful letters.  I just adored Cass.  She is so matter-of-fact about everything.  5 Stars

ONE WICKED WINTER NIGHT by Mary Jo Putney
Lady Diana Lawrence is back in London after having traveled the world.  She never expected to run into Anthony Raines, the now Duke of Castleton, so soon but the obvious chemistry was still there.  Diana is unsure if she ever wants to be married but Anthony lost Diana once and is intent on not letting that happen again.  It will take a kidnapping for Diana to come to her senses!  I just loved Diana.  She is not your typical member of the ton.  She was a hoot!  5 Stars
