Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who always takes care of her own—no matter the cost...

When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace.

Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy—one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.


This story builds on previous books in the series, so you do need to read in order.

Black Arts is a fast-paced action-packed adventure. It starts with a bang and doesn’t stop. It ties up unfinished business and gives us answers on numerous things we have been waiting for.

Jane’s life is finally making sense. Those around her finally know her heritage and abilities. It’s liberating for Jane. The only downside is she is still estranged from her best friend Molly and her family, but then again that rift is about to be slowly mended.

Jane and Beast are more in-since with each other, but they still have a ways to go, yet some things get resolved between them. It was fabulous to have Molly and her family back in the picture. The Younger brothers are great for Jane and add to the story. Leo, well he’s Leo. George, things are changing for him too. Jane’s love life or whatever it is gets some resolution. I have to say, I cried for Jane. Rick is an ass and I never liked him, but what happens is devastating. Though I have to say I’m hoping he is gone for good. As I’ve said from the get go Jane needs someone who will put her first, stand by her, and love her for who she is.

Black Arts is an emotional read, a roller coaster ride, and a wonderful story blending action, romance, magic, and history.

    • It’s been interesting. I like Jane and Beast and their character growth. My only issue which I’ve had from the begging is the love triangle or men in Jane’s life. Hopeful that will be resolved. Other then that I like the mystery, action, and learning about Jane/Beast.

  3. As usual, the more I read the reviews of this series the more intrigued I become. Once again, thank you or your review. I really do enjoy reading them.

    • Glad to see you are enjoying my reviews for Jane Yellowrock. It’s been an interesting series, so far and I’m liking the books.

  4. I really need to try this series. Great review.

    • That’s how I felt when I saw a review for Jane Yellowrock… And here we are. So far it’s been interesting. Jane and Beast are unique characters and I like learning about them. The mystery and adventures are fun too. As for the men in Jane’s life, not so much. I’m ready for something to be decided on that front.

  5. I’m late! I need to read book 2!
