Week 14 Reviews: WeSa and the Lumber King, The Early Years, Snafu, Cat Tats, Kits, Haints, Signatures of the Dead, Skinwalker, First Sight, Blood Cross, Mercy Blade, Blood, Fangs and Going Furry, Dance Master, Raven Cursed














From Goodreads:
Beast, with Jane Yellowrock in the background of her mind, observes the lumber camp of white men who are destroying her hunting grounds. She decides to take revenge on the leader of the lumberjacks.

From Goodreads:
On her 18th birthday, Jane Yellowrock leaves the children's home where she was raised, and heads north to her first job. But she makes a detour and discovers where she came from, who she is, and what she is.

From Goodreads:
Fans are always asking me about Jane's early life and training, about how she went from the children's home to rogue-vamp hunter. Well, here's a small insight into how.

From Goodreads:
In this story from the Jane Yellowrock universe, undercover agent Rick LaFleur has been working on gaining access to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City of New Orleans. But he wakes up naked and bound in an old barn, at the mercy of a magic-working tattoo artist and an insane vampire.

From Goodreads:
When Molly Everhart Trueblood doesn’t show up for her shift at Seven Sassy Sisters Herb Shop and CafĂ©, Jane Yellowrock goes to the house to check on her. There Jane discovers a black cloud of wild, out of control magic attacking the small home. How can Jane save the small family?

From Goodreads:
Molly Everhart Trueblood and Jane Yellowrock try to discover if a local house is indeed haunted. But the problem that they discover is far worse than a ghostly haunting, and far more difficult to solve.

From Goodreads:
Jane Yellowrock, her best friend Molly Trueblood, an earth witch, police detective Paul "Brax" Braxton, and Molly's husband Evan go after a blood-family of rogue-vampires who killed a local family.

From Goodreads:

First in a brand new series from the author of the rogue mage novels

Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps... 

From Goodreads:

It is in Skinwalker that Jane Yellowrock first meets George Dumas (Bruiser) and Leo Pellissier. Now, in "First Sight", that encounter is revisited - only this time from Bruiser’s point of view.

From Goodreads:
Jane Yellowrock is back on the prowl against the children of the night... 

The vampire council has hired skinwalker Jane Yellowrock to hunt and kill one of their own who has broken sacred ancient rules — but Jane quickly realizes that in a community that is thousands of years old, loyalties run deep...


With the help of her witch best friend and local vigilantes, Jane finds herself caught between bitter rivalries — and closer than ever to the secret origin of the entire vampire race. But in a city of old grudges and dark magic, Jane will have to fight to protect both sides, even if no one will protect her.

From Goodreads:
Things are heating up in the Big Easy. Weres have announced their existence to the world, and revived the bitter tensions that run between them and their old enemies: vampires. As a trusted employee of Leo Pellissier, Blood Master of the City, Jane finds herself caught in the cross fire. When Jane is attacked by a pack of marauding werewolves, she is thankful for the help of a mysterious stranger named Girrard. He explains that he used to be Leo's 'Mercy Blade,' a sacred position charged with killing vampires who have gone insane. What Jane doesn't know is why this powerful assassin left New Orleans--or, more troubling, why he's now returned. It's definitely not to make Jane's life easier... 

From Goodreads:
When police officer Rick LaFLeur is infected with the taint of black were-leopard, he goes to Jane Yellowrock for help. But her idea of "help" is not quite what he was expecting: she knocks him out and he wakes up in a cage.

From Goodreads:

George Dumas (Bruiser) calls Jane Yellowrock to the Royal Mojo Blues Company, because the club has been the scene of vampire attacks from an unknown rogue-vamp. And they dance. Oh, do they dance…

From Goodreads:
The vampires of Asheville, North Carolina, want to establish their own clan, but since they owe loyalty to the Master Vampire of New Orleans they must work out the terms with him. To come up with an equitable solution, he sends an envoy with the best bodyguard blood money can buy: Jane Yellowrock.


But when a group of local campers are attacked by something fanged, Jane goes from escort to investigator. Unless she wants to face a very angry master vampire, she will have to work overtime to find the killer. It's a good thing she's worth every penny. 

My Review:
I enjoyed reading these books so much! This world of vampires and weres, and Jane, a skinwalker, someone who hasn't met another of her kind since her dad died. Well, until the first book. But yeah. This world was so fascinating!

I really enjoyed all the short stories in the collection. They started this world off, and again, this world was so great to read! They told stories that were a part of Jane and the people that become close to her. So yeah, so great!

There was a lot packed into each book, these things were pretty big honking books! That made them all the more great, though there were a few repetitions of the same things in each book, her shifting process, her lacking facts until she didn't. Read separately, it wouldn't matter, but reading them this close together, it was slightly annoying. Oh, well!

There were both complicated relationships and politics, and sometimes those became entwined. They added a lot of conflict, and I know they'll continue to do so. There were just so many bits and pieces! And Beast was a part of that, I just absolutely loved her!

These were just amazing books, and I can't wait to read more! They're just so entertaining and great!
