Reviewed by: Rabid Reads 4. There are all kinds of twists on various folklores and mythologies, as well as multitudes of different takes on a myriad of supernatural creatures. We all have our favorites and not-so-favorites. Ghosts, zombies, and other dead things in general excepting vampires. Which is exactly what happened when I came across Skinwalker by Faith Hunter. Jane had just arrived in New Orleans to start a new job after healing from her previous job. Previous job?
Yeah, the one where she and her friend Molly took out an entire family of rogue vampires, and she almost got her throat ripped out. But it really was the first book, and the references to that first job were meant to entice you into reading the prequel story released in an anthology the same day that Skinwalker was released.
Jane in New Orleans for a new job. And Jane is very good at her job. She makes Jane a much more complex character, and her insights as a hunter and predator while Jane is on a job only add depth to the story.
When Julie showed up in book 2 of Kate Daniels, I was a goner. Firm rules in reference to supes. I absolutely HATE it when authors try to polish and sparkle the existence of all things supernatural.
Just, no. If she wants to be bigger or smaller than she is in real life, she has to either get the mass from somewhere, or store it somewhere. I appreciate that. The MEN. Rick, Leo, Bruiser, take your pick, they are all.
Skinwalker by Faith Hunter is the brilliant beginning of the Jane Yellowrock series. It takes you on a wild ride through the eyes of a puma concolor, on the roof of moving vehicles, all to catch a killer whose identity will surprise even veteran mystery readers. And Beast is pretty darn cool, too. My other reviews for this series:.
