This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m covering the second entry in the Jane Yellowrock series. It’s Blood Cross by Faith Hunter!
Plot Synopsis: As a vampire hunter and skinwalker, Jane Yellowrock is public enemy number one to the vampire community – even though she is also the key to their survival. Now, she’s about to learn that working for the enemy is just as dangerous as hunting them. The Vampire Council of New Orleans has hired Jane 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, mythos have real power, and the past often has more force than the present.
Plot: The plot is pretty fast paced, and while I didn’t enjoy the tension between Jane, Bruiser, and Rick, the rest of the plot was very good. It’s probably one of the better second entries in an Urban Fantasy series I’ve read in a while.
Characters: We get introduced to some new characters, including Angie and Molly who are probably my favorite of the newcomers. That being said Jane still is my favorite for being a badass female lead and snarky.
Overall: An excellent sequel and second entry, this is a must read for Urban Fantasy lovers.
