Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter

Title: Shadow Rites 
Series: Jane Yellowrock #10
Author:  Faith Hunter
Release Date: April 5, 2016 
Publisher: Roc

Jane Yellowrock has her hands full in the latest novel in the New York Times bestselling 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 doorstep. 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.


Shadow Rites is another awesome book in the series. It was exciting. Full of intrigue.  The politics between witches and vampires are becoming super important, since Leo needs to make some alliances before the European vamps come to town. 

Jane is in charge of the security for the next witches conclave meeting but someone doesn't want this to happen. 

Jane is magically attacked at home. Of course, this happens multiple times through the book. She has no idea who's behind it but she's able to piece it all together when it counts. 

Leo is still hiding things from Jane. I'm not sure what his deal is. Most of the time I want Jane to stake him. He can be a self-righteous bastard. 

Bruiser.  I <3 Bruiser. I'm so happy that they are an item. He has become someone Jane can trust implicitly. In the past, his loyalty was to Leo. Now, his loyalty is to Jane. What a change!

Beast.. I. love. Every. Single. Scene. She. Is. In.

The twist with Edmund was good.  I think this is going to benefit Jane when the final showdown comes to play. 

I love that Jane has a "clan" now. She is surrounded by people who love her and thanks to Edmund, Jane's need to keep her "family" safe gets explained better.

Angie baby is kind of scary....I wonder what is going to happen to her. It wouldn't surprise me if someone tries to kidnap her.

Like I said, I love this book!

Cliffhanger: No

5/5 Fangs
