Jane Yellowrock must dig deep and find strength within herself if she is to survive in the latest novel in this New York Times bestselling series.
Jane Yellowrock is vampire-killer-for-hire, but her last battle with an ancient arcane enemy has brought her low. She seeks retreat in the Appalachian Mountains to grieve the loss of her friends, and to heal—or to die—from the disease brought on by her magic.
But malevolent elements in the paranormal community still seek to destroy Jane, and a terrifying foe stalks her, even into the safety of the hills. With nowhere to run and her body failing, the rogue-vampire hunter and her inner Beast must discover a way to defeat this new threat, and find a form that gives her a chance to fight another day.
Hunter drives the danger to dizzying heights in the emotionally charged 13th novel to feature skinwalker and vampire hunter Jane Yellowrock. Jane hasn't recovered from the effects of acquiring magic in 2018's Dark Queen. Her newly developed powers make her gravely ill, and even shapeshifting into her supernaturally healthy Beast form won't heal her. When Shimon Bar-Judas, the psychotic 2,000-year-old vampire known as the Flayer of Mithrans, comes after her, Jane will need all the dwindling strength she has. At Yellowrock Clan Home, a converted inn outside Asheville, N.C., Jane gathers her allies to prepare for an all-out war against Shimon. Her business partners, Eli and Alex Younger; her lover, Bruiser; and her best friend, witch Molly Everhart-Trueblood, agree to help her, but in the end it will be down to Jane and Beast to take out the threat. In a series chock-full of preternatural villains, Shimon stands out as the scariest of the lot. Hunter delivers the fast pace, high stakes, and flawlessly crafted fight scenes fans expect. This is one of her best yet.

Faith has done it again!! What a ride. I can’t say too much because I’ll spoil it. This is the most action paced book ( I’m my opinion) out of the whole series! This is why she’s such a ROCKSTAR!! Do t miss this one. You WILL regret it
I want more!!!
I received this ARC for an honest review. I LOVE this series! I read through this book in under a DAY! This book begins after the death of Leo. Jane goes to the mountains to grieve Leo and her own possible death. Jane has a magic induced cancer, and she stays in mostly in beast form because she feels better and in hiding from her feelings. During this time Edmund is in Europe trying to bond all the vampires. While in Europe, Edmond gets kidnapped. By whom???? You must read this book!
Jane’s family gets threatened by the kidnappers, and everyone comes together. I’m not going to tell you more. This book is exciting, intense, and draws you in.
