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...

With the help of her witch best friend and local vigilantes, Jane finds herself caught between bitter rivalries — and closer than ever to the secret origin of the entire vampire race. But in a city of old grudges and dark magic, Jane will have to fight to protect both sides, even if no one will protect her.


Spoiler Free

It’s a must read in order series. 

Blood Cross is book two in the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter. 

Jane completed one job for the Council, but now the Council has hired her for another job. She has to navigate the Vampire world, stop a war, and make sure that she doesn’t die or step on anymore toes. 

When we last left Jane she was still in New Orleans. Molly and the kids have come to visit. It was so nice to see Molly, the kids, and Jane with them. I absolutely enjoyed learning more about Jane and her Beast. Their was some great character growth and change for both of them. We also get some very important information about the vampires and their history. That information was mind-blowing. I loved watching Jane navigation the Vampire world, but still there’s so much more for her and us to learn. 

I really liked the slow mystery that developed throughout this series. I liked the hunt for the Rogue vampire, the suspense, and learning more about the Vampires and Jane.

Blood Cross was a fantastic urban fantasy to read. 

Rated: 4 Stars

  1. This is one of the series I need to get to. I read Cold Reign for review and I really should have had read the rest of the series first. You’re right, you really have to read this in order. I’m glad to hear the narration is good. I think I already have the first couple of books and they are in audio so that will probably be how I read this series.

    • I’ve had lots of other bloggers suggest trying Jane Yellowrock in audio. They say it’s better. I’ve had up’s and down’s with Jane. I like it, but not in love with it. Though I’m not going to quit it. I still have some interesting in seeing where things go with all the characters. Hope you enjoy!

  2. I really need to start this series. It even has a great narrator. Glad you’re enjoying so far.

    • I’ve heard that the narration is great for this series. It’s been enjoyable. I’m not a fan of the men in Jane’s life. I think she can do better. I’m still continuing and will see what comes out of the plot, character development, and love life.

  3. She always has these fantastic covers for her books. I have got to get started on this series!
