Description:

Jane Yellowrock is back on the prowl against the children of the night...

The vampire council has hired skinwalker Jane Yellowrock 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...

With the help of her witch best friend and local vigilantes, Jane finds herself caught between bitter rivalries — and closer than ever to the secret origin of the entire vampire race. But in a city of old grudges and dark magic, Jane will have to fight to protect both sides, even if no one will protect her.

Review:

It's not been that long since I finished book 1 but I have forgotten a lot of what went down.

This starts with Jane at home with her witch friend Molly and her kids when she is summoned outside by vampires who have petrol and torches, wanting her dead for the killing of their sire's son - or should that be the monster that was impersonating his son - only to change their mind when they realise there are children in the house. When the children are later taken, Jane races against time to find the people behind it.

I had honestly forgotten a lot of the events of the first book and it took me a while to get into this because I didn't remember. It was only when Jane asked Bruiser to take her to a vampire party that I started to get into this. I was pulled in because the sexual tension between them was going off the charts. Of course this series doesn't focus much on the romance and we kind of have two guys interested in Jane. I know which of the two I'd rather her be with but I may not continue the series to find out.

I wasn't keen on reading a lot of the history and back story of the vamps and Cherokee people. It was just so long winded at times and I lost interest.

Yeah, I'm kinda torn. I am interested in the romance aspect - with Bruiser - but at the same time, the stories themselves aren't doing anything for me. 

I don't think I'll be continuing the series.
