*New York Times Bestselling Author Kim Harrison
Fans and newcomers alike will delight in this fantastic collection of 17 previously published stories and two brand-new novellas that weave together the books of Hunter's long-running Jane Yellowrock urban fantasy series. In "The Early Years," Jane says good-bye to the Bethel Nondenominational Christian Children's Home in hopes of discovering her origins, finding her future, and taming her alter ego, Beast. In "Cat Tats," Jane's love interest, Rick LaFleur, wakes up bound to a witch's circle, at the mercy of a vampire who's determined to make him her blood servant. In the terrifying "Beneath a Bloody Moon," Jane and her crew use the canals that wind through the Louisiana bayou to track a trio of werewolves who are leaving a trail of violent deaths in their wake. "Off the Grid" finds Jane infiltrating a cult to rescue a vampire who's been kidnapped for her blood, and introduces Nell Ingram (who will soon have her own series), a former member of God's Cloud of Glory Church, who is more than happy to help Jane and company take down its twisted leader. This superb collection highlights what fans of the series already know: Jane Yellowrock continues to be one of the most complex and appealing heroines in urban fantasy.
Faith Hunter Does It Again
The stories contained within the pages of "Blood In Her Veins", PROVES beyond a doubt, that Faith has created a world we'd ALL love to live in. Jane Yellowrock is a fascinating character, that readers will turn to, time and time again. She is a strong, self sufficient, compassionate, deadly woman. What girl wouldn't want to be her?! Her friends, lovers, enemies and made family, allow for a true development and personality. Seeing Jane through the eyes of the people in her life, makes a reader "feel" as if they are there, right beside Jane & Beast. Faith's ability to seamlessly take each POV, twist them up, bind them in vision and story, is a master class act. Not too many authors in the market/genre, can so easily switch around, and never leave the reader saying "Huh? What? Where'd that come from?". Each character has such a unique personality, you want them at your dinner table, regaling you with their tales and interactions, with Jane.
The Jane Yellowrock series, is simply put, a top tier series I hope continues for a long, long, looooong, time.
