Pressestimmen

Praise for Faith Hunter:  

“Faith Hunter has created one of my favorite characters, ever. Jane Yellowrock is full of contradictions.”—Fresh Fiction

“A lot of series seek to emulate Hunter’s work, but few come close to capturing the essence of urban fantasy: the perfect blend of intriguing heroine, suspense, [and] fantasy with just enough romance…”—SF Site

“Jane Yellowrock is smart, sexy, and ruthless.”—New York Times Bestselling Author Kim Harrison

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

A native of Louisiana, Faith Hunter spent her early years on the bayous and rivers, learning survival skills and the womanly arts. She liked horses, dogs, fishing and crabbing much better than girly skills. She still does. In grade school, she fell in love with fantasy and science fiction, reading five books a week and wishing she could "write that great stuff." Faith now shares her life with her Renaissance Man and their dogs in a Enclave of their own.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Im sechsten Buch der Reihe muss Jane Vampirprobleme in der Stadt Natchez lösen. Und dies offensichtlich gegen den Willen des Obervampir Leo Pellissier.
Nach den Ereignissen im letzten Buch hat Jane grosse Probleme mit ihrem Leben zurecht zu kommen. Zwar ist sie selber von Leo befreit, dafür hängt ihr Beast an der goldenen Kette zu Leo. Was dazu geführt hat, dass sich Jane seit Monaten nicht mehr gewandelt hat, nur noch mürrisch und depressiv herumhängt. Zum Leidwesen ihrer Mitbewohner, der Younger Brüder. Die Beziehung zum schönen Rick LaFleur ist tot, er nimmt ihre Telefonanrufe nicht mehr entgegen und ihre Freundschaft mit der Hexe Molly ist beendet, diese kann ihr die nötige Tötung ihrer bösen Schwester nicht verzeihen.

In der Stadt Natchez geht eine schlimme Vampirplage um. Vampire mit speziellen Fähigkeiten, Naturaleza, terrorisieren die Bewohner, Menschen, Hexen und normale Vampire. Jane und ihr Team werden zu Hilfe gerufen, Rick LaFleur und seine offizielle übernatürliche Polizei werden ebenfalls involviert. Jane wird von einer alten Kinderheimfreundin, unterdessen Journalistin und Buchautorin, kontaktiert- diese will Insider-Informationen über Vampire. Jane ist bereit, darauf einzugehen, insbesondere als sie mitbekommt, dass diese Camilla Geld zur Behandlung ihrer schwer krebskranken Tochter braucht.

Die Geschichte ist rasant, gewalttätig und blutrünstig wie immer. Und spannend. Unterhaltsam wie immer, ausserdem erhalten wir wieder einige Einsichten in Jane's Vergangenheit. Auf der Beziehungsebene entwickelt sich nicht sehr viel, sie bleibt auf der Schwebe.
Spoiler: was ich nicht begreife, wieso Jane keine Beziehung mit Rick haben kann, weil er sie anstecken könnte. Sie ist ja bereits eine Gestaltwandlerin. Auch die Haltung der Hexenfamilie Trueblood kann ich nicht nachvollziehen.
Alles in allem, empfehlenswert.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Nach ihrem letzten Abenteuer hat sich Jane zurückgezogen, um ihre Wunden zu lecken. Der Vertrauensbruch von Bruiser schmerzt noch immer tief, die Demütigung durch Leos erzwungene Unterwerfung wird noch verschlimmert durch Beasts für sie kaum auszuhaltendes anhaltendes Interesse trotz der übernatürlichen Kette, die dadurch entstanden ist. Jane verweigert monatelang jede Verwandlung, nimmt keine Aufträge an, und zieht sich zurück. So kann es nicht weitergehen, finden auch die Younger-Brüder, die mit ihrer Chefin und Hausgenossin in dieser ungewohnten Stimmung wenig anfangen können. Gerade als die beiden anfangen, eigene Pläne zu schmieden, reißt ein neuer Auftrag Jane aus ihrer Lethargie...

Am Anfang von BLOOD TRADE zeigt sich Jane ungewohnt passiv und fast schon depressiv, was man ihr allerdings nur zu gut nachfühlen kann nach allem, was sie durchgemacht hat. Wie sie sich wieder fängt und dabei nicht nur die Gelgenheit nutzt, Leo in seiner dominanten Art ein Schnippchen zu schlagen, zeigt sie einmal mehr von einer ihrer starken Seiten und bringt in ihrem neuesten Auftrag wieder einmal viele bekannte Gesichter und attraktive Charaktere auf die Bildfläche, von Bruiser über die Younger-Brüder bis hin zu lange vermissten Figuren wie Evan und den Hexen. Das Tempo beschleunigt geradezu sprunghaft, es gibt Kämpfe, Magie, übernatürliche Elemente und auch eine Auseinandersetzung mit Janes indianischen Wurzeln.

Dies wird von Faith Hunter so spannend und flüssig in Szene gesetzt, dass man - wieder einmal - kaum zum Luftholen kommt beim Lesen.

Another Jane Yellowrock story entertained me very much. I like the fast paced stories of the author and the character developments. Somehow, one is always kept on one's toes.

Jane can survive anything... 3. April 2013
Von Zeenakwon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Summary: Contrary to Leo's wishes, Jane heads out to Natchez, MS to help with rogue vampires. A problem where Naturaleza vampires, those that want unlimited human cattle, have "disappeared" over 100 people. Can she and her friends stop the bad guys? Bad guys that are not what they seem...

Review: Action, fantasy, romance, self-evaluation, forgiveness. All of these elements appear in Jane Yellowrock's newest tale by Faith Hunter.

Blood Trade is a novel of beginnings and spiritual awareness. We left Jane in Death's Rival without her former friends and lovers, and she was chained to Leo. And in the beginning of this book, she despaired her conditions. But through her new friends, the Younger brothers, and a new job, Jane emerged stronger and better. Many threads were resolved, and Jane started to understand herself and those around her. We also learn more about vampires and their origins. I'm curious to see how this knowledge will affect everyone when Leo finds out she knows.

Jane is not a heroine in heels who never make mistakes. She is flawed and makes mistakes. However, Jane's appeal is that her character never stops learning and growing. She had many spiritual realizations in this book, and also found out that her life since she came to New Orleans might not have been a coincidence. Jane is tough to forgive, not only others, but also herself. She is difficult, but that is what makes her relatable.

Jane's friends and foes are also complex and enjoyable to read. Bruiser is by far my favorite, especially now that he's undergone many changes. The Younger brothers become indispensable to Jane, and we meet people from her past. She starts to understand the meaning of family. Rick and his PsyLED friends show up to lend a hand, and we learn more about Soul. Leo is largely absent in this book, however, his presence is known through every page and plot point.

My minor complaint is Jane's love life. I don't expect it to be resolved, with 3+ books to go, but I believed Rick as an choice ended last book. I expected him and Jane to have closure, but Rick remained a candidate. Instead, Jane's love life is the same. Also, by the end of Death's Rival, I thought she had forgiven Bruiser. They seemed to have bonded before the final battle. But we are brought back to Jane holding Bruiser accountable for actions he had no control over. Instead, Jane's love life is the same.

The Jane Yellowrock world is more than vampires, death, and romance. The depth of the characters, especially Jane, is multi-dimensional. They challenge my own thoughts, past, and beliefs. A book that results in deep thoughts is one that I encourage everyone to read. Because a book that makes us thing, helps us grow, too.

Sex: None, not even kissing. Sad, but the descriptions of Bruiser, Rick, and co. really make up for it. ;)
Violence: Multiple shootings and stabbings.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Series Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Quote: (Bruiser) "I would give," he said, his voice rough, "everything I am to keep you from being hurt."

Next Book: Black Arts is currently a WIP

There IS No Other heroine Like Jane UPDATE 2. April 2013
Von Douglas C. Meeks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Jane Yellowrock is a one-of-a-kind heroine that reflects a female "tough-as-nails" persona that appeals to readers of all ages and genres. The popularity of this series is unquestioned as is the quality of the writing, Ms Hunter has brought to life a character that embodies shape-shifters with Cherokee heritage plus a dose of vampires and a bit of other nastiness to top it off. Like I said, nothing's like it and if there is another one that I have missed it obviously is not as well written and addictive as this series is to those of us that have followed her though all the installments.

This installment is as good or better than most and I hope Faith Hunter can continue to create and write these novels for many more years. I still tire of the on/off relationship with Rick but that keeps going and I am still waiting on some revenge for the actions of Leo and Bruiser, my revenge junkie was not happy :)

(UPDATE: Faith Hunter replied to my complaints about a lack of revenge with this info about the next book : "I just wrote the revenge scene, Douglas Meeks. It was ... lovely. And best served cold...")

Another winner in the Yellowrock series 2. April 2013
Von Jaymie Larkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Since this is very early in the book's release (I got my Kindle download at midnight and as a result got very little sleep!) this review will remain a bit vague to avoid spoilers, but I will share my impressions.

The action packed Skinwalker series continues to grab readers from the start and pull you right into the story. Jane Yellowrock, a shape changing, Harley riding, snarky, Cherokee skinwalker who shares her soul with a mountain lion simply known as Beast, has a little problem. In a nutshell, vampires. Normally, she hunts them, but now she is stuck working for them. But, hey, even rogue vampire killing, security expert bodyguard/bounty hunter gals have off days, right?

Intense action and detailed world building are always key elements in Hunter's books and this one is no different. It takes us away from the now familiar New Orleans setting to a richly described Natchez, Mississippi on a new case. This time it is hunting an even more dangerous type of rogue vamp than usual. This one is not held in check by vamp law or custom, but believes in the Naturaleza, which pretty much means he has been going postal on humans, that humans are nothing more than prey. Supported by a returning cast of interesting secondary characters, Jane finds herself coordinating with her ex, now a federal agent, to try and solve the case before any more are hurt.

Amidst all the action and mystery, Jane continues her spiritual journey to unlock bits of her past that have been affecting her current day actions. I think Jane is finally coming to grips with her past in this book and it is encouraging to see her getting back to her old form and choosing new paths. There is still a lot of room for growth and discovery in new books, but this is a good start.

This is a great read that I found nigh impossible to put down. As I mentioned, it has plenty of quick paced action and a strong enough mystery that it can easily be a stand alone read or read out of order. What are you waiting for? Get Blood Trade, and once you get hooked, go back and start with the first book, Skinwalker. You won't be disappointed!

Weakest book n the series , so far 7. April 2013
Von David G - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book starts off as a two star novel. In the first half of the book, the author tries to write a mystery, an emotional woman struggling with her independence in the new world, and a travelogue of how picturesque the deep south can be. These types of books are not my favorite and the author is mediocre at all these types of writing.

Not until the second half does the author return to a strong heroine fighting evil, and kicking a**. The second half returns to a five star rock sockem on the edge of your seat page turner. Since this is the last thing you read it leaves you feeling good about the book. But when I sat down to review I remembered how disappointed I was with the beginning of the book.

The author is trying to develop an unrealistic character in Eli, the ex soldier/ranger working with Jane. He is morphing into a Batman like fighter, able to take on vamps one on one, and with a kill count approaching Jane. This undermines the premise of the series, that Jane's skinwalker skills give her the needed advantage to fight the baddies on an equal basis. I am not opposed to a human champion; but feels it is not consistent with the world created to date and I dislike stories that are not consistent with their own rules. Miss Esme resonates more believably, as a civilian who gets captured almost immediately once she meddles with vamps.

In order to give Jane more of a fight the author keeps throwing powers at her enemies. But this starts to seem silly as many times you sense that if only one more vamp had been there Jane would be dead. And there are lots of bad vamps in town. So why are they too stupid to bring enough firepower together? On a similar vein they create magic guardians to protect their secrets and not one of the four guardians is as powerful as the wards around the house, nor capable of killing even one of the attacking heroes. Why create a layered defense when anything powerful enough to get through your first layer (wards) can easily destroy your second layer (guardian fighters). If the author wants to show a more balanced fight, she must accept fewer heroes or potential losses amongst all the combatants, or the story seems simplistic.

The cryptic advice from the Indian wise woman is bull. If she wants to help and knows the answers why speak in riddles. The authors attempt to talk around this just added to the feeling of someone attempting to blow smoke at me, and added little to the story. Revealing the information more directly, but perhaps with the mystic woman knowing fewer details might have been more palatable.

Jane is a strong heroine and her inner struggles to choose between Rick and Bruiser reflects an indecision not consistent with the character. Jane's inner turmoil does not ring true to her character. I thought she had closure with Rick; although he did seem to be the best candidate for a mate. Personally I feel consistent with her Beast character she should choose both and tell them if they can't accept that. it is their loss.

I would still give the series a five star rating; but this book only gets three stars. Do NOT start the series here. Without background stories you will be confused on who is who, not understand the rules of magic in this series and most importantly you will get a weak impression of a great series.

One thing I have noticed is I get unhelpful votes only when I am negative about a book. So if you find this review unhelpful by all means vote that way. But please also leave a comment why, so I can improve my future reviews. If we just have different taste (or you are related to the author) I am afraid that our opinions may differ, but I have no hidden agenda and what I write reflects my personal opinion and is an honest review.

Urban fantasy at its best 2. April 2013
Von CB73 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this book! I'm a big fan of the series in general, and Blood Trade continued all the great action, scene setting, and character interaction I have come to expect while taking the storyline in a promising direction. Buy it today. You won't be able to put it down.

Finally, things are looking up for Jane Yellowrock. The previous book, Death's Rival, left Jane isolated personally, unwillingly entangled professionally, and at one of the lowest points in her life. It was, frankly, heartbreaking. As a fan of the series and of Jane in particular, I was really hoping for some resolution in Blood Trade. I just couldn't bear to see Jane suffering. Thank you, Faith Hunter, for setting Jane on the road to redemption.

Once again, a job takes Jane to Natchez, Mississippi. Backed by a new team of sidekicks, Jane tackles a new and almost indestructible type of vampire while trying to solve a mystery that threatens a childhood friend and her daughter. Because that isn't challenging enough, Jane has to coordinate with local and federal law enforcement (including the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart) and rely on help from former friends, one of whom bears a grudge against Jane and one who betrayed her. Saving vigilante grandmas; communing with spirits; disrupting powerful witch magic - all in a day's work for Jane Yellowrock.

Besides great action and an intriguing mystery, the book continues Jane's journey of enlightenment and growth. We learn more about her past and how it has influenced her character and decisions. We see the origin of Jane's need to stand up to bullies/ oppressors/ evil... Perhaps her most perplexing trait, Jane's compulsion to finish what she starts - even when it leads her in directions she does not want to go, seemingly prioritizing work commitments (to people she neither respects nor trusts) over friends and allies - no longer seems immoderate; it is a logical outcome of her early childhood. And best of all, Jane's new insight into her own values and behaviors gives her the courage to start mending fences. All is not yet right in Jane's world, but a promising new day is dawning.
