Blood Cross

Blood Cross4.35 Another Wednesday, another great Urban Fantasy This book could have easily gotten the full 5 star rating, but it was a bit too repetitive at times, enough to be noticeable In many ways it reminds me of another of my favorite UF series they are very exciting, have kick ass leading ladies, and act first think later approach to fighting evil Gin and Jane are strong and have powers, but still barely get out alive at the end of each book, mostly because they have luck like no other They also have very loyal and supportive friends, who must really rethink their friendship, since just because they are in the vicinity of our heroes, get almost killed and often hurt as leverage I think, for their safety, they should move far, far away from wherever those ladies are at any given time The second book deliveres a great follow up to the debut With Skinwalker Only this time the stakes are even higher and the bloodshed even disturbing We get to spend some time with the most adorable baby witch, who together with her baby brother and her mom Molly, come to visit Jane in New Orleans while she is on the hunt for a rogue Vampire who is creating new vamps and leaves them to fend for themselves, crazed with bloodlust and unable to maintain any control feed and kill people at random Jane is happy to have her friends with her, but danger is looming over the city and vampiric powerplay for control of the city puts everyone in the middle As I said, very exciting and addictive book with a ton of action, magic and blood feedings I loved it and I hope you guys do as well Gooooo Big Cat, go I wish you all Happy Reading and many wonderful books to come View Our Feature On Faith Hunter S Blood Cross Jane Yellowrock Is Back On The Prowl Against The Children Of The Night The Vampire Council Has Hired Skinwalker Jane Yellowrock To Hunt And Kill One Of Their Own Who Has Broken Sacred Ancient Rules But Jane Quickly Realizes That In A Community That Is Thousands Of Years Old, Loyalties Run Deep Jane Yellowrock is like that girlfriend you have that is totally great in every aspect of her life except men She is totally badass and I love the skinwalking aspect of her with Beast It is a really cool concept and her being Native American really fits in with the mystery and history to her character but she is totally clueless when it comes to menFor a gal who had been out of circulation for a few years, I was getting a lot of attention Too bad they were cop, blood servant, and angry vamp I d be lucky to survive. Normally this would be a dealbreaker for me But I like just about everything else about Jane that I m going to let it go for now but well will discuss it later in the review Jane is still in New Orleans hunting the rogue vampire that seems to making young vampires with no training Leo in the throws of a vampire depression of sorts wants to kill her and her witchy woman friend has come to visit with the kids Jane has her hands full at the moment.Let s just say that I totally love Molly and the cutest little witch ever Angelina I hope we get a lot of them in the next books too I do like that Jane has something resembling a family in them.The plot is pretty good Jane needs to find the feral vamps and who is making them She is also trying to figure out who is stealing witch children and why Anytime there are kids involved the story gets a bit intense for me I liked meeting some quirky characters, specifically Bethany who seems just on this side of sanity There was also a really cool revelation about the origins of the vampires and why they are cursed This was a pretty good ride and it seems like Jane is finding all kinds of new friends to work with in New Orleans I liked how the search wrapped up as the fight was really intense.Now back to the abysmal men in Jane s life So far our options are Leo He is totally out for me because he has tried to kill her a few times Seriously how is he even in contention Then we get Bruiser George who is Leo s blood servant so basically he is always going to take Leo s side over Jane s and isn t going to be there when she really needs him But at least they have some decent chemistry and he seems like a semi solid dude.And then we get The Joe a.k.a Rick I hate him and I m going to jump on the burn him with fire train He is a liar, manipulator and a player We learned that in the last book, she actually saw him having sex with someone else that he was just using for information while he was actively trying to get her into bed NO just NO.The only guy in this that I found remotely jumpable was Derek an ex marine that is probably too old for her that helped her in the Vampire Hunt He is the only good guy in this so far So Jane needs to gets some dating picking a mate skills but her ability to kick some vamp ass is pretty solid so I will stick around, probably longer than some of the dudes in this. You know that great feeling when you ve discovered a wonderful new series and to your delight, the author has already written like 10 books in it you have yet to read Score This is just superb There s a hurricane in New Orleans Jane has been hired to take out a rogue vampire menace in the area There s something creepy going on with the local witches, and Leo, Master of the Dead, wants to kill her fr the events of Book One.Jane s love life heats up some in this one, although I confess view spoiler I m still holding out for her and Leo as my ship Bruiser and Rick feel so similar to me as characters at the moment hide spoiler For a gal who had been out of circulation for a few years, I was getting a lot of attention Too bad they were cop, blood servant, and angry vamp I d be lucky to survive Any hope of the hot union between Jane and Leo that was teased in the first book was kind of blown to smithereens at the finale of Skinwalker the second book takes off where Jane hasn t been wise enough to leave town yet, and her relationship with the MOC has changed big time as a result of a certain death Leo.well, he s definitely not the hunky vamp from the first storyBig time bonding with Angie and Molly as the witches are introduced than through phone calls, yummy Bruiser scenes, Rick coming across interesting in his player way, a strange dressmaker, the bonding scene with Katie s girls Bethany is a bizarre one but another example of how workable the world building is with this one Rick still isn t a worthy character by this point since you just can t trust him, but I do find still like him by this second book I can t complain about any of the characters Sometimes the mystery plot lost me a little bit, but the ending had a heavy bang with Angie s help Jane learns a little about her past and her connection with Big Cat with her family history As always Beast is a hoot to be in the head of, but I do wish Jane were a little stronger in her own skin she seems to almost get killed too much and too easily in this one.We do get background on the vampire legend and creation, which I only find semi interesting I m interested in the current characters in the series than their race origins The same with Jane s past it s good to know but I get a little impatient sometimes living too much in the past.Any delays are made up with awkward party scenes, Leo s roaring takedown again some vamps itching to take off, Bruiser s reluctant flirting, Jane getting intuned with her inner beast, Beast s amusing addiction to the witch children as kits , and a violent ending that delivers this as a twisted but fascinating Urban Fantasy series Addicting stuff.Oh, but couldn t we get details with a certain pairing at the end other than a sentence After all that build up, it s just sneaky 00 Say what Ok, not as good as the last one, but I really really liked it And what I absolutely loved was the story, the myth, the history of this series As I said, for me, a great UF PNR needs to have some fantastic world building Yes, other stuff matter too, but for me, this is one of the most important And boy, am I enjoying this one 4.5 stars I really like this series and the main protagonist, Jane Yellowrock Despite the fact that professionally she is the Business, she is vulnerable in personal relationships I love the fact that she is an ugly crier This was high action adventure Jane could, and nearly did,have died several times in this book Beast is also a character in her own right and seems to be coming to the fore.Jane Yellowrock has joined the ranks of Kate Daniels, Mercy Thompson and October Daye as one of my Urban Fantasy staples Welcome to the gang, Jane Vampires and witches and skinwalkers, O MY Faith Hunter s 2010 novel Blood Cross, the second in the very entertaining Jane Yellowrock series, is a fun entry into the genre.Hunter s excellent world building and writing distinguishes this series from the sub genre of urban fantasy female Cherokee skinwalkers who actively hunt and kill vampires and are befriended by witches in an alternate history universe Jane is head and shoulders over the rest skinwalkers like Tina Tailfeather, Trudy Turkeyneck and Barbi Bearclaw.This starts up a little while after the events in the first book, Skinwalker, first published in 2009 Jane is still in New Orleans and still working for the Blood Master of the city a Mercedes exec and hunting rogue vampires.Hunter s coolest addition to the vampire mythos is her magic rules In her vampirology, a newly turned vampire is like a zombie like what she did there a mindless eating machine who must be chained and kept for YEARS before they turn into the suave and sophisticated undead ready for primetime There s lots of such rules and rule breaking and shenanigans and this all blends into her fun story.Another cool addition to her building is her vampire origins Won t throw down any spoilers and I have not researched whether her ideas are original or if she is borrowing from another origin myth, but she pulled it off nicely.All in all a very cool urban fantasy and recommended for than just fans. 08 02 2017 Another great buddy read with the awesome girls and guy over at BBB Jane is still in New Orleans and the vampire council has hired her to hunt and kill the rogue who is letting loose newly turned vampires on humanity A job that has put Jane smack in the middle of vampire politics and rivalries And if that s not enough she has to watch her back because Leo Pellisier, the Blood Master of New Orleans, is still blaming her for his son s death and is out to seek revenge on JaneLuckily for Jane her best friend, who is a witch and the local vigilantes mercenaries are there to ask for help, because the clues Jane follows the closer she comes to sacred vampire secrets, that no one is supposed to know about And when Jane realises that witch children has being going missing, time is suddenly running out Jane will have to do what she does best hunting a rogue vampire before it s too lateTo be honest I m a bit torn about this series I like Jane and I love Beast, although I m getting a bit tired of every vampire wanting Jane s blood and her body It s a little weird And the way she acts around the three different love interests, how hot she finds them, thinking of mating with them is making her seem like a cat in heat And that is frustrating and off putting. I am not impressed at all with Jane s selection of love interests I liked Leo in the first book, he was a mysterious and intriguing guy but in this book he was batshit crazy Really crazy For someone his age you would think he would be able to think logical even when he was grieving But the way he tried to kill Jane..this guy is totally bonkers and needs to be staked Then there s Bruiser, Leo s second and bloodservant I liked him in the first book, and I liked the chemistry between them in this book, but although his loyalty to Leo is admirable, I don t admire blind loyalty and he s definitely not the right guy for Jane because Leo will always come first to him Then there s Rick the lying slimeball of the previous book, who was a lot better in this book probably because the other two in comparison were not up to par but I still don t like and trust him He s too smooth, too charming Can t we get a better love interest for Jane PleaseThe best parts of this book was the plot which was excellent and Molly and her cute children I enjoyed the suspense with Jane hunting the rogue, trying to figure out who he she was although I wish she would stop getting hurt so much, because the way the vampires has to help her every time makes me damn nervous And the vampire politics and secrets were so damn interesting I also enjoyed learning about Jane s Cherokee heritage Then there was Molly, Jane s best friend who is a witch and her small children Molly is awesome and I love how she supports Jane And her daughter, Angie is adorable I just love that little girl and how powerful she isI am really liking the intriguing plot and Jane and totally loving Beast, so hopefully the romance part will be sorted soon and I can enjoy everything about this series
