Publisher's Summary

Jane Yellowrock goes back to the city where it all began in the newest installment of this thrilling New York Times best-selling series.

Jane used to hunt vampires, but now she’s their queen. She’s holed up in the mountains with the Yellowrock Clan, enjoying a little peace, when a surprise attack on her people proves that trouble is brewing. Someone is using very old magic to launch a bid for power, and it’s all tied to the place where Jane was first drawn into the world of Leo Pellissier - the city of New Orleans.

Jane is compelled to return to NOLA because someone is trying to destabilize the paranormal world order. And because she now sits near the top of the vampire world, the assault is her problem. She will do what she must to protect what’s hers. Her city. Her people. Her power. Her crown.

Interesting plot continuance but same old same old

The performance is excellent as always but as always the baddies keep one upping the supposedly sophisticated defences, technological and magical. Jane is still whinging about her problems and doubting herself. Her growing up journey has been long and repetitive. She still leaves enemies who directly injure and kill her people, alive and of course they escape to injure and kill some more.
She listen to no council from her nearest and dearest and they pay the consequences.
The story development is good with some eye opening developments and of course will continue in the next book when I’m expecting that the two biggest bads in this book will no doubt escape to rend more destruction and heart ache for Jane Yellowrock and her clan.
Kristine Vam is awesome.

Jane, Queenie, fights a new threat.

All these books have been an adventure, and this one is no different, except it’s even better, in my book.
In this, we find Jane trying to fit in and rule her Mithrans, blood servants etc.

Leo is gone, and Bruiser is mourning him. Jane is having trouble with shifting uncontrollably and there is a new threat in NOL.
I loved returning to BOL and meeting up again with many of her old friends and getting used to new ones.

This book is a beauty!

I can never get enough

I want to live in this series.
… Every time Eli drawls “babe…” to Jane.
… Every time Bruiser calls her “my love”.
… Every time Beast ‘paw paw paws’ and peers out Jane’s eyes…
My addiction to this world grows with every new release.

Congratulations Faith for another wonderful story, again with such a masterful delivery and performance by Khristine. Your words - her voices… SUPERB.

True dead

As this series continues I love it more and more. Faith draws you into a world you just don’t want to leave. This book made me smile, laugh and cry. If you haven’t read the series. Do yourself a favour and read it. Jane and beast continue their journey and trials. Now I wait impatiently for the next book. Congratulations Faith on yet another amazing book

A Jane Yellowrock book never disappoints ...

I'm extremely choosy about my audiobooks and have walked away from multiple, long time enjoyable series when the stories became stale/repetitive.

Book 14 of the Jane Yellowrock series is once again at the pinnacle of urban fantasy.

The main character continues to grow, the stories follow reasonable yet unexpected turns, new information keeps both story and Jane's development fresh.

I don't know how Faith Hunter does it!

I hope the author chooses to use all these interesting possibilities to create another 14 books.

Thank you. Faith Hunter. You are truly a master storyteller.

How Do I Even Begin to Describe

The feelings "True Dead" evoked. So many events, both wonderful, horrible, heart warming, and heart stopping. Alliances, betrayals, lives lost, lives saved, and just lives. Powerful battles, and one more enemy.....Book 14 in the life of Jane Yellowrock is a perfectly stunning continuation of Jane's life, and how long must we wait for book 15?
As always, Khristine Hvam has made a superb performance, narrating this book.
Beast can only count to five, just as reviews only provide five stars, but, as Beast says, this book's excellence is "many more than five."

I don’t know how Faith keeps doing it!

This book was just brilliant!!! It’s crazy to think an author is 14 books into a series & can still surprise readers just like early on in the series. I can’t wait for 15 & I’m also anxious since it’s supposed to be the last Jane book. Khristine is just hands down one of the best book narrators ever.

I waited a whole year for this.

It wasn’t necessarily worth the wait. Ms Hunter seems to have too many books and series to balance. I can no longer recommend.

The Best One Yet!!!

Faith Hunter has done it again! Jane is adapting to her new roll, while keeping her snark, we experience a roller coaster of emotions, and something interesting at the end. I can’t wait for the next book!

Back On Track

Nice to see a Jane back to her confident self like in the beginning. She has been through a lot of agonizing self- reflection in the last book or two.

Like the addition of Quint and the expanded role of Cowan.

Already doing the impatient dance for the next book!

Twists and turns aplenty

Faith Hunter your imagination is amazing! This series never has a dull moment - it’s like a freight train - no spoilers from me - if you have not read/heard the rest of the series start with Skinwalker - I envy you for being new to it! Hasn’t stopped me from relistening multiple times mind!

OMG!! It just gets better and better!

I've been following the Jane Yellowrock books for years. Faith never fails to deliver the most complex, well planned stories, with threads woven together from books past. I bloody loved it!!

Expected nothing less

Amazing continuation of Jane Yellowrock story! Many beloved characters are back (or at least have cameo appearance), memories are relived, new people introduced and previously introduced characters more developed. Lots of action, sweat, blood, tears, power plays, machinations, and challenges. And a beautiful wedding. Amazing! But I expected nothing less from my favorite FH!
