Skinwalker (2009) Faith Hunter

This is a re-read.

The first book in the series introduces us to Jane Yellowrock, a skin walker and rogue vampire hunter.

She’s come to New Orleans at the request of the local vampire council to take out a rogue who has been killing civilians.

I enjoyed going back to the start, where we first meet Jane and spend time with both her and Beast. It was interesting to familiar characters as they were first introduced.

I’d also like to point out that Faith Hunter has always gotten the BEST covers for the Jane Yellowrock series. Yeah, I could do without the skin-tight leather pants and bustier (and cleavage! Silly) but despite that, Jane is depicted as strong and in control of her own destiny. Her skin is a little paler here than in other covers and how she is described, I’m willing to let that slide, since at least she is dark haired and dark eyed, but mostly because she’s depicted in a no-nonsense way. She looks like someone who can fight, and defend not just herself, but others. (Except for that cleavage. But you can’t win ’em all.)
Rating: 8/10
