Lot of action in just 2 hours!

Off the Grid was originally published in Black Water, a collection of Jane Yellowrock and it takes place between Blood Trade and Black Arts.

Jane is set to the Knoxville, TN area by NOLA Master suck head, Leo, to help solve the case of a missing vampire. Jane finds herself in the middle of a sicko religious cult that treats the women (and girls) has their “heavenly play things”.

While Jane is figuring out what the missing vampire has to do with the cult she runs into a young woman in the woods named Nell.

It doesn’t matter if the team of Faith Hunter and Khristine Hvam get together for a 16+ hour audio or for one that’s just 2 hours long like Off the Grid, they are going to grab you with Jane and entertain the hell out of you.

Off the Grid was a fun and action pack listen in the Jane Yellowrock universal and a nice way to introduce Nell Ingram the leading heroine in Hunter’s “Jane spin-off” series, Soulwood. The first book is titled, Blood of the Earth and it will be hitting the shelves in October 2015. And a little birdie told me that Khristine Hvam will be the narrator. So I’m super excited!

THIS IS BOOK 7.5 !

Audible has (when writing this) this listed as book 6.5 in the Jane Yellowrock series. This is wrong. "Off the grid" is book 7.5 in the series.

It won't ruin book 7 (Black Arts) completely if you read it out of order, but it does contain a couple of minor spoilers for book 7. So - best read before book 7.

A compact story written with obvious outrage at the story subject. Almost bloodless (what? yes!). The story villain is dealt with in a surprisingly satisfying way...

Khristine Hvam - great as always.

This is 7.5 not 6.5

So if you're reading the series for the first time skip it and read book 7 first. There are a couple minor spoilers for book 7 in the beginning.

I loved this novella! It was even better listening the second time as I've read all of Nell's novels now.

Confusing plot setup

I don't know where this belongs in the greater story. there are facts that elude to this being before deaths rival and some for after. The story telling and characters are as perfect as always.

Short Intro to "Soulwood"

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Wish it was longer, at least a couple hours more.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Vham is always a treat to listen to. Always!!!

Was Off the Grid worth the listening time?

Yes, as I love both "Soulwood" books. I enjoy the mixture of "magic's". Vampires are not my favorites, but love Jane Yellowrock and Khristine Hvam

This can't be book 6.5

If you could sum up Off the Grid in three words, what would they be?

Great short story, but confusing. It can't be book 6.5 because the accident with Bitsa didn't happen until book 7, and was talked about in more detail in book 8. Also Jane couldn't have stopped by Molly's resteraunt or stopped by to see Molly's kids in book 6.5 because they didn't become friendly again until book 7. It's just a few little things that made me a little confused. Audible needs to list this book as book 7.5 or 8.5 so it makes more sense. Other than that, it's a great little story...I enjoyed it.

What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love the narrator. She has the characters down pat.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I listened to it in one sitting.

Always a pleasure to read anything in Jane's world

I love these short stories that involve characters not usually seen. This story opens up the possibilities of future inclusion of various personalities. I look forward to their stories.

As always

Ever read a story and catch yourself "improving" on the writing? I have never had that experience with Faith Hunter. Her plots, character development and turn of phrase are delightful. This story is no exception even if it is way too short.

As with all of the Jane Yellowrock stories, the narration is great. I've never had to cringe at the southern accent nor been stopped short by mispronunciation of a treasured concept. And Beast? She is purrfect.

Encore!!

Short story packs a punch

This short story is a bit darker than some of the longer novels. I hope the magic in the land element can be expanded later as I found that fascinating. The cults abuse of women and children was delicately handled but I still found it disturbing ... which it should. I did cheer when Yummy went off with her prey.

Great story, if a little over priced.

I loved this story, In fact I love all the Jane Yellowrock books, and Khristine Hvam did a fantastic jab as always. My only criticism is the price. It was a little expensive for such a short story, and it hasn't been made available for kindle so you can only buy it as an audio book.

Good Short Stor6y - Jane at work

What did you like most about Off the Grid?

This shows Jane working as enforcer and problem solver - no emotional involvement with the other main characters

What was one of the most memorable moments of Off the Grid?

When Jane and Beast go down the side of the cliff

Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favourite?

I enjoy the way she portrays Beast

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No major emotions it was not an emotional story as far as I am concerned. Worthwhile listen.

Any additional comments?

I thought it was a little expensive for less than two hours listening but I am a sucker and will always buy any new Jane Yellowrock.

Doomsday Cult meets its Doom.

Jane finds herself in Tennessee on the trail of a missing Vamp As Enforcer for the MOC of New Orleans Jane is to assist one of his Fanghead subordinates, but Jane soon discovers the Leo wasn't told everything nor the urgency of the mission Along the way she finds a new Vamp enemy, a possibly new Vamp "friend" and a latent paranormal being who could be the key to solving the disappearance of the Vamp. Along the way Jane discovers true evil that doesn't come with fangs. In the background "Beast" offers commentary. A great short story set just before Book #7. A worthy tale that contributes to the Legend of Jane Yellowrock, Rogue Vampire hunter

thoroughly disappointing

after reading the soulwood books I was expecting a lot more from this story. there is very little contact between Nell and Jane. the last 35-40 mins is the beginning of the next book
