Dark Queen, Audio Edition (2018) Faith Hunter narrated by Khristine Hvam (Jane Yellowrock) I’m having a hard time believing that I read this four years ago.

Dark Heir, Audio Edition (2015) Faith Hunter narrated by Khristine Hvam (Jane Yellowrock) This is the point where story arcs begin to leak between books, with more being unresolved than is resolved.

Mercy Blade, Audio Edition

Mercy Blade, Audio Edition (2011) Faith Hunter narrated by Khristine Hvam I love Khristine Hvam’s narration of this series. Every time I reread this series, I like Rick even less.

Shattered Bonds

Shattered Bonds (2019) Faith Hunter (Jane Yellowrock) This book came out last October. I started it, and immediately realized I just wasn’t up to reading a book that was all action and bad stuff from the get go. At the end of the last book, Leo is dead, the vampire world is in chaos, and […]

Circle of the Moon

Circle of the Moon (2019) Faith Hunter This book is set after the last Jane Yellowrock book, Dark Queen, but I’m not 100% clear on the time-line, which was problematic. As best I can tell, this is far enough after the big events that Jane has gone to ground to heal, which is why neither […]

Dark Queen

Dark Queen (2018) Faith Hunter Wow.

Cold Reign, Audio Edition

Cold Reign, Audio Edition (2017) Faith Hunter narrated by Khristine Hvam I’ve been working my way through the Jane Yellowrock audio books since 2014.

Curse on the Land, Audio Version

Curse on the Land, Audio Version (2016) Faith Hunter narrated by Khristine Hvam As I was listening to this, I kept being surprised by events, because for some reason I thought there were already three books.

Blood of the Earth, Audio Version

Blood of the Earth, Audio Version (2016) Faith Hunter narrated by Khristine Hvam I generally don’t listen to a book immediately after I’ve read it, so if I wanted more of Jane Yellowrock’s world, I was going to have to listen to the Soulwood series. Which was perfectly fine with me. Khristine Hvam also narrates […]

Cold Reign (2017) Faith Hunter This is Jane Yellowrock Volume 11. In case you had lost track (which I had). An unnatural storm has fallen over New Orleans and long-dead vamps are rising as revenants.

Blood of the Earth

Blood of the Earth (2016) Faith Hunter We met Nell Ingram in the Jane Yellowrock short story “Off the Grid.” (In the anthology Blood in Her Veins). She is a very interesting character, and I can see why the author wanted to spend more time with her. Nell has escaped from the cult in which […]

Black Arts, Audio Edition

Black Arts, audible version (2014) Faith Hunter, narrated by Khristine Hvam I really enjoy listening to this series. The narrator does a good job with the story and the characters.
