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.My thoughts:
Doing my best to catch up on the series I've been wanting to continue I picked up Blood Cross the second book in the Jane Yellowrock series. I really enjoyed the first book and luckily things came back to me quickly. This is a series I would suggest starting from the beginning. The first book, Skinwalker, does a good job of setting up the world and the characters.
The characters are my favorite part of the book, but the one that steals the show is Beast. Beast is her cougar alter and seems to know more than Jane. Beast is more than willing to help Jane in her life to get her to where she needs to be... even if she gets frustrated with her frequently. My other favorite character is Angie. A small but powerful child that will steal your heart.
The plot was one that moved quickly but did not overwhelm. There is romance in a way but as with all UF it does not take precedence. And while I loved Jane there were times I could see how Beast would become so easily frustrated. However, Jane is still learning and there is a huge gap in her memories. Her path to discovery is one of the arcs in the storyline.
I give this book 4 stars. It is a good continuation of the series and I will be reading the next in this series. Yes, I am hooked and I recommend it to those that enjoy UF.
