Publisher's Summary

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.

Lacked direction

I've been a long time fan of the Jane Yellowrock series and found this one a little disappointing. It had its moments and Khristine Hvam provided excellent narration as always but the plot seemed to be all over the place. While there was a central story arc it didn't seem to keep the narrative focused and the various sub plots just seemed to be there to fill space. In the end I was left unsatisfied and with too many deliberately unanswered questions. It felt like this book is meant as a lead up to the next but it only really introduced that kind of anticipatory tension in the last chapter and seemed to deliver more of a "light" version of what's to come.

Loads of action with a surprising heart

One of the things I love about this series is that the past doesn't just go away. It means some of the novel is taken up with reminders to give context, and it means the story is richer than usual. Jane's choices mean more. At every incident she risks winning this fight but losing the war. She wants more than just to stay alive, she wants human relationships and her integrity too. That keeps me coming back in spite of the violence, which isn't really my thing. You can't skip the fight scenes because too much of importance happens in between the shootings & beheadings.
Jane continues to gain unusual powers, and fears becoming less human as a result. And being used as a more powerful tool by Vampire king Leo. The novel ends in a satisfying close with a hint of future complications.
As an aside, I find the obsession with not swearing while toting -and using - guns, swords & knives both amusing & heartbreaking.
