The reviews of Raven Cursed by Faith Hunter didn’t have me as wary as I thought they would. Matter of fact the reviews on this series I feel have been warranted but are a little premature because with the vastness of Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series it’s going to take a few installments to work out all of the kinks, as well as the character development of some really complex characters. Within the beginning of Raven Cursed I found myself checking out a lot, mentally. Since I was listening to this on audio, I sort of got lost in all of the dialogue and explanation that Jane had to go through with the new circumstances between Kinenbi (I think that’s how you spell his name), Rick, and Molly and her family. Sadly, I didn’t check back into Raven Cursed until about halfway through, when the action stared to make itself known. […]

When I started Blood of the Earth by Faith Hunter my excitement spiked because I knew with a Faith Hunter story I would get a great dose of fantasy and suspense. What I didn’t expect, though, was to end up only liking two characters out of Blood of the Earth and struggling to get through the beginning portion. Now, when I hit the 60% mark and worked my way to the end, Blood of the Earth was definitely a winner. The struggle I had with the beginning of Blood of the Earth stemmed from a disconnect I had with the reason behind it spinning off from the Jane Yellowrock series. At the mention of a particular mission that Jane needed Nell’s help with, the urge to stop reading and continue the Jane Yellowrock series became strong (I feel that Blood of the Earth shouldn’t and can’t be read as a […]

Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter brought everything that I loved about this extended world that Hunter created, along with the growth of the members of Unit Eighteen. The conflict they found themselves facing stumped me for the entirety of this installment and I have to admit that that was an unexpected treat in and of itself. With how explosive the ending of Curse of The Land was, and just the unexpected nature of the characters and tone of Hunter’s Soulwood series, I was left going in blind with Flame in the Dark. While I loved this aspect, I also found myself anxious because other than what I knew of the characters there was nothing to hold onto when it came to this new chapter. A lot of the relationship dynamics within Unit Eighteen of the PsyLED has changed since Curse of The Land thanks to both what Nell […]

In my review of Skinwalker I hinted, somewhat, at how I thought that Blood Cross by Faith Hunter and I wouldn’t get along, but I am glad to say that my assumption was way off the mark; like football field size. In Blood Cross, the 2nd installation of the Jane Yellowrock series, we are given more of an insight into the relationship Jane has with Molly and her 2 precious babies, but most importantly the baby girl Angie (I have to say, out of all that went on in Blood Cross the relationship between Jane and Angie-baby – as Jane calls her – ended up being the highlight of the book for me). Furthermore, we were given a different look into what makes Jane the way she is, and the author uses Beast to do this; their two personalities are polar opposites and in their differences I found myself siding […]

Out of all the paranormal and fantasy stories I’ve read, I have never read or listened to one the could’ve prepared me for Skinwalker Faith Hunter. Between the narration by Khristine Hvam and the storyline itself, other than some lulls, I was riveted. The confidence and vulnerabilities that Jane (our heroine in Skinwalker) sometimes showed with those she let close were the two qualities that really endeared me to her character. But, it was the almost desperate need to know who she was that in the lou of protecting herself and taking care of business would leave me hesitant about going all in for her character. After finishing Skinwalker I can’t help but acknowledge how divided Jane seemed. Other than Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega series I’ve never read about the animal side being separate but one with the human side. Even with there being a mystery surrounding Jane and […]
