This Week’s Most Anticipated Release(s)
If your looking for a kick-ass heroine, look no further. I love the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter, and have done since the first book. I have to admit though that the last few books have left me thinking that the series is dwindling somewhat (specifically after the whole relationship with Ricky started going drastically downhill), but I hold out hope that it will eventually kick back into high gear! Can we say ‘New love interest please!’….LOL I will be picking up Black Arts, which is due out on January 7th – Fingers crossed on this one!
About the series: Jane Yellowrock is a skinwalker, and as far as she knows the only one of her kind. She uses her special abilities – as well as a unique skill set – to track down vampires. Her work as a bounty hunter gets more and more complicated as she’s pulled further and further into the vampire hierarchy. Black Arts is preceded by Signatures of the Dead (anthology), Skinwalker, Blood Cross, Mercy Blade, Raven Cursed, Death’s Rival, Blood Trade, Cat Tales (anthology), Easy pickings (anthology), and Have Stakes Will Travel (anthology.
Blurb for Black Arts: 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…

For Christine Feehan fans, her new release Dark Wolf is out on January 7th. If your new to her, I would suggest starting back with her earlier works. Number one, because it is a long series and the beginning gives you more background and insight into her world and the characters themselves. Second, because her earlier works were so much better than the more recent titles. I have always been a fan of Feehan – considering her one of my favorite authors – but even I have to admit that the series is falling apart. I have bought the past couple of books, but to be honest – I still haven’t read them yet. I am a bit leery to pick them up because I’m afraid it will be THE BOOK – the one that has me calling it quits for one of my favorite series. But I do plan to get caught up on her works, so I will be buying this book anyway – but I won’t guarantee when i will actually read it!

Blurb for Dark Wolf: Skyler Daratrazanoff always recognized the miracle that was Dimitri Tirunul, a man beyond any dream that had ever engaged her nights. But she was human. Vulnerable. He was Carpathian. Nearly immortal. She was nineteen. He was an ancient. Yet she held half his soul, the light to his darkness. Without her, he would not survive. Caught between the two warring species, Dimitri has spent centuries hunting the undead to keep his people free, and humans safe. He had survived honorably when others had chosen to give up their souls. But now, marked for extermination by the Lycans, Dimitri found himself alone, and fearing for his life. But salvation was coming…No Lycan would ever suspect someone like Skyler to dare mount a secret rescue operation. A teenage girl. A human of untested abilities. But she had something no one else had. She was predestined for Dimitri—as he was for her. And there was nothing stronger for Skyler than her desire to see her life-dream come true. Whatever the risk.
