Summary

Shapeshifting skinwalker Jane Yellowrock is the best in the business when it comes to slaying vampires. But her latest fanged foe may be above her pay grade.
For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it's definitely personal.
Jane is tasked with tracking him down. With the help of a tech wiz and an ex-Army ranger, her partners in Yellowrock Securities, she'll have to put everything on the line, and hope it's enough. Things are about to get real hard in the Big Easy.

A lot of description not enough story

The parts of the YellowRock books I like the best which are the relationships between Jane, Bruiser, Rickybo, Beast and Leo were put on the back burner. This book was full of history and characters I couldn't keep up with. It felt like a fill in whist we are waiting for the next real storyline of the European vamps. Nice to have Jane back but for me not my favourite book.

Starting to lose its way a little.

I've loved these books and buy them as soon as they are available to preorder. The last three have only been so so. This was a big improvement but still felt a bit off track.
That being said the narrator is still amazing and the characters are the reason I keep returning. They are so well created and the interplay is fun to listen to.
I'll still buy the next when it come out.

My Favorite Yellowrock Book to Date!

For fans of the Jane Yellowrock books, get ready for more of all that's best about this series, and plenty of new twists and turns.

The pacing of "Dark Heir" is wonderful. Beloved characters are given additional depth and rounding out. Complications in their lives, flaws in character, and personal growth make this an addictive, refreshing change from the genre's usual fare.

Jane Yellowrock is quirky, delightfully imperfect, and such a fantastic heroine. Her alter-ego, Beast, is equally likable, with a different personality altogether... and they work together so well. Their relationship has evolved and become both smoother and more complex, and so well-integrated into the story. There's nothing forced about it, and it's wonderful to see how her other relationships (in business, romance, and her friends) struggle and grow in "Dark Heir" -- something I was really hoping to see, as Hunter's been building up to it throughout the series.

And I have to tell you, of all of the Jane Yellowrock books, it's my absolute favorite.

Khristine Hvam narrates this book beautifully, doing an amazing job giving life to characters human and otherwise. She's the voice of Jane and Beast both in my mind now, and I cannot imagine anyone else more suitable as a narrator for this series.

As an author, Faith Hunter stands behind her characters and the world she's created for them, and she seems to not be losing steam with this series. Her excitement about these books is justifiable, as they are completely addictive. Every book is worth your credits, as are the Jane Yellowrock short stories (also available here on Audible).

Expect blood and violence, romance (and one steamy sex scene in particular - no pun intended), and some fairly significant changes in Jane's life.


Thanks for yet another fantastic novel!

Hunter and Hyam keep getting better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend the entire series to start with. One of the best written and narrated series. There are several, one being "The Hollows Series" by Kim Harrison. Margarete Gavin narrated.(Every book got better and when the series ended on book 13 it had a great ending) When Faith Hunter decides to end the series I'm sure it will be just as fantastic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Who's better than Jane and Beast. But the Younger Brothers and Bruiser are hard to beat. and in this book I had sympathy for Leo, and what he has to deal with (even though he's a predator) There's a lot going on in this story that makes it really non-stop action from start to finish.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to her do this entire series. She is fantastic with all the characters, accents, and emotions. I can't imagine anyone else narrating this series.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Jane was in the church and so badly burned and couldn't change with Bruiser. The battle she fought with herself and her Beast to pull through was really moving.

Any additional comments?

I have a feeling the next book with bring the Europeans into the story, and it will be VERY NASTY. But I think Jane and Beast will pull off another win.
