Faith Hunter

by Terrence McArthur


Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock is tough. She’s a Cherokee skinwalker with Beast, a mountain lion, sharing her soulspace. She killed a man when she was five years old. She’s over a hundred years old, but she looks good. She’s a vampire hunter employed by Leo Pellesier, the vampire Master of New Orleans. Her ex-boyfriend is a werepanther. There’s a vampire calling her Master living under her stairs like a Harry Potter with fangs, and she has a wreath/crown in her closet, glowing. Jane is no Plain Jane.

Nell Ingram feels the earth, is healed by the earth, and gets things to grow. She can even feed a person’s life force into the earth until they die. She was an outcast of the polygamous cult where she was born, but now she has friends, her teammates in the paranormal arm of Homeland Security. In Faith Hunter’s second Soulwood book, Curse on the Land, Nell is back from training.

I’ve written a number of reviews about Jane Yellowrock, the shapeshifting skinwalker and vampire hunter created by Faith Hunter. There’s a reason for that. Faith Hunter keeps writing these things and I keep reading them! And now…there’s another one: Shadow Rites.

Jane Yellowrock is a fighter. A Native American skinwalker sharing her soul with a mountain lion (known as Beast), motorcycle-riding Jane kills rogue vampires while she works for the biggest vamp in the American Southeast. For nine novels, Faith Hunter has created traps, obstacles and mysteries for Jane to solve and overcome, with occasional short stories and novellas to flesh out characters and fill in gaps in the narrative.

Dark Heir is the ninth book in Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series. Does the series hold up after so many outings? Yes. Oh, yes indeed.
Jane is a Cherokee skinwalker connected to a mountain lion she calls Beast, and Jane hunts vampires. Of late, she’s been working in New Orleans for Leo, master vampire of the city, but she’s put on loan to the police when a really-really-old witch/vampire (known as the Son of Darkness) stops being a glorified-but-ironic wall ornament, breaks out of Leo’s L-5 basement and starts draining everything in sight.

This anthology has three stories from Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series, and it is available only as an e-book. I have to admit that this was my introduction to Jane Yellowrock, but even though two of the stories take place during the series I was still able to enjoy them and didn’t feel that lost. The other story is a prequel of sorts and introduces us to a young Jane which was a perfect introduction for me to the character. Jane is a skinwalker and vampire hunter.

In Black Arts, Faith Hunter’s latest book in the series, Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting vampire hunter with a mountain lion trapped inside her soul, and is metaphysically chained to Leo, the master vampire of New Orleans. This is a ticklish situation for her, and she doesn’t want him to know she is bound to him. Leo has a security job for Jane, running things for a high-stakes vampire event, but she has her own problems: Molly is missing. Molly, a witch, used to be Jane’s best friend…until Jane killed her sister.

Jane is a vampire hunter; Jane works for vampires. That’s right. She kills vampires for vampires. There are some problem vampires that other vampires can’t—or won’t—deal with, and that’s when they call in Jane.
