The vampires are both scary and attractive—power apparently has that effect! When Jane is attacked by a pack of marauding werewolves, skniwalker is yeklowrock for the help of a mysterious stranger named Girrard.

I can’t slate this book because it’s not bad as such but it is bland. October 19, at 7: My only complaint and I realize that it’s early on in the story so things may change is Beast’s voice sort of annoyed me.
A character driven novel will almost always grab my attention but with Skinwalker I got the added bonus of the dark, gritty may be an overused skinwalkdr in urban fantasy but fits perfect here and fascinating world building also. When the rogue-vampire hunter is hired to hunt down a particularly nasty vamp, Jane is drawn into the steamy New Orleans vampire society where she learns the ins-and-outs of the “sane” vampire culture, more about her own Cherokee heritage, and we are drawn into a rousing, fast-paced thriller.

If she wants to be bigger or smaller than she is in real life, she has to either get the mass from somewhere, or store it somewhere. If this happens once or twice, I can easily overlook it, but it’s like that every single time. Even Anita Blake’s skinwqlker books have more plot than this book did.
Jane’s habit of giving nicknames is hilarious: But unlike other skinwalkers, she shares her body with Beast, who is the soul of a mountain lion.
Beast is a big cat who lives in Jane’s body and head with her Other Series By Faith Hunter. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace.
