Publisher's Summary

Jane Yellowrock has her hands full in the latest novel in the New York Times best-selling series that captures "the essence of urban fantasy" (SF Site).
Slaying vampires is child's play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans' supernatural players is another story....
Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her door. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.
A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit...undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it's up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war.

I love this series. Faith Hunter has created a detailed and complex world.
The characters are well rounded and with the assistance of the narrator each has a defined voice.
This is a roller coaster with a multifaceted story, sections which made me smile and plenty of adventure. It takes a while before she (you) work-out who the baddies are and it is not immediately obvious but so appropriate. As the characters stem from one of the earlier books in the series.
I could do a detail discussion of the story line involving the witches, vamps and Jane's created family but I wont. No spoilers from me. I loved it and I will read it again. I know I will see even more on the second reading.
If you are so luck as not to have read the series then start it now.

Bit of a let down

I was really looking forward to this as I love the Jane Yellowrock series, but this was a real disappointment. I don't know what it was exactly, but it just seemed to be missing the its usual spark. The story was okay but not great, and the end felt very rushed. A real shame as, like I said, I love this series but this makes me think it may be running out of steam a little. I hope that's not the case and only time will tell, but this certainly isn't a promising sign.
