Cold Reign is Supreme

Everyone who reads my posts regularly knows I’m a massive fan of Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series.

For longtime readers, Cold Reign is a big payoff. I agree with other bloggers who have said that if you haven’t read the preceding books, don’t start with this one. This is a reward for those who have followed Jane over time. We get European vampires, Bruiser and Ricky Bo, a bit of Angie-baby (one of my favorite characters), the whole Clan Yellowrock family, and more. I forced myself to slow down and read it over three days because I need sleep.

This is a HIGHLY RECOMMEND for her fans. If you haven’t read these books, stop, go back to number 1 and read from the beginning. The rest of us will be waiting here for you.

Was heaving breaths, cat-gagging. Alex strapped Jane’s waterproof gobag around my neck. Held plastic cup of vampire blood to nose.
Smell good. Smell strong. I/we lapped blood. Licked small cup clean. Was still hungry in belly but strongness raced through body.
Alex slapped Beast on butt.
Snarled at littermate Alex. Pulled paws under belly and stood. Needed food. Needed cow or deer. Needed to hunt and pounce and kill and eat. Growled. Shook pelt like dog. Was wet.
“I can’t leave,” Alex said. “Not with vamps in the house. Be careful.”
Hacked at Alex. Padded to porch, to door where Edmund had come in to den. Blood was everywhere. Edmund blood, rich and strong. Licked at blood. Some was good. Some was also silver. Looked up at Alex. Was man now. Held white-man gun in one hand, pointed at floor. Fingers on safe place called slide.
“I’ll clean up the mess,” Alex said.
Sniffed with scree of sound, lips back, sucking air over tongue and scent sacs at top of mouth. Smelled strange vampires, their blood mixed with blood of Edmund. Blood. Silver. Death.

Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker…and the woman rogue vampires fear most.

Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.

And there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.

Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…

  1. Love this series! Jane is such a strong, bad-ass woman, and I love the great other diverse characters and the fascinating world-building.
