SHADOW RITES (Jane Yellowrock #10) | Faith Hunter | Mass Market Paperback | $7.99 | 368 pages | April 5, 2016 | ISBN: 9780451465979

Slaying vampires is child’s play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans’ supernatural players is another story…

Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her doorstep. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.

A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit…undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it’s up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war.

    I can’t wait for this book. I love the Jane Yellowrock series and especially love her relationship with Eli, Alex and George!

  2. Margot. D

    Triple date ? I had to read this several times, that sounded so weird conning from Jane’s mouth.
    Can’t wait for the next part !

    1. Diane N.

      I know, triple date! Jodie & Wrassler. Jane & Bruiser a given. Could Eli & Syl be the third? Faith Hunter writes characters that you just can’t help having feelings for. Both positive and negative feelings.
