Cold Reign by Faith Hunter

Title:  Cold Reign 
Author:  Faith Hunter
Series: Jane Yellowrock #11
Publisher: Ace
Release Date: May 2, 2017 

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 Pellisier, 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.

But 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 of cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…

Cold Reign is Jane Yellowrock at it's best. This was another fantastic addition to this series. 

If you want a definition of Urban Fantasy, you have it in Faith Hunter's work. After eleven books she has not lost her touch if anything I want to read more about her characters and their evolution

Jane Yellowrock started as a solo heroine. Now, she is part of a family that includes the two Younger brothers, Ed, Bruiser, Molly and Co, and now Brute. It seems some home renovations are in order. She might consider a bigger home too since she keeps on adding more people to her "clan". 

So what evil is Jane fighting this time? Well, it seems like the Revenant Vamps are back. They are popping up in different places in New Orleans and killing humans without a care. The European Vamps might be behind their attack. Jane as Leo Pellisier's enforcer is responsible for cleaning the area of the nasty revenant vamps. She's also Leo's security team and of course, Leo never makes things easy by hiding so much from Jane. I do agree with her, she must show him some manners. He pissed me off big time here. Or maybe, she should let Beast do the talking. He's really asking for it.

In regards to the romance, If you had read my prior reviews you know I'm a huge Bruiser lover. He's still perfect for Jane in my eyes. I'm very happy Mrs. Hunter makes it extremely clear who deserves Jane in this book.

Cold Reign is an unstoppable action-packed book. From the moment it begins, poor Jane and her friends don't get enough sleep or good food. I was devouring the pages in a desperate attempt to find out what Janie was going to encounter. I feared for everyone's lives in this one. No one seems to be safe. My heart was in my throat too many times.

I can honestly recommend this book 100% to any UF lover. 

Cliffhanger: No

5/5 Fangs
