      3 11 17 rerereread b c Steven is PERSISTENT Minus 0.5 stars from original rating, b c I bloody hate Rick, the slime.Reviewed by Rabid Reads4.5 starsUrban Fantasy is a pretty diverse genre There are all kinds of twists on various folklores and mythologies, as well as multitudes of different takes on a myriad of supernatural creatures We all have our favorites and not so favorites For me, if it has something to do with the Fae or Native American folklore, I m probably going to love it Ghosts, zomb [...]

      Let me get one thing straight I don t read romance novels If romance is included within the scope of main character experience, I ll still read it But if the main story is magickal, wonderful, soulmate kind of l o v eand there is pining, angst, and ridiculous pretend fights when really they l o v e each other but can t admit it, that s a big fat pass for me Skinwalker won t appeal to those who like a little romance with their paranormal Move along now.Jane is an interesting, unusual entry into t [...]

      BR with my MacHalo Freaks starting Sept 21, 2015.Actual rating 2.5 stars Then again I m not sure, maybe it doesn t deserve than 2 stars.Disclaimer I read this book only 10 days ago and can hardly remember the story This should be a fascinating review Then again, I was recently told my reviews were offensive, so all is not lost You might get bored but at least there s a good chance you ll feel outraged about all this Muahahahaha Presenting Adventures in Lowered Ratings, courtesy of Faith Hunter [...]

      I took a break from my American Ninja Warrior training to read Faith Hunter s 2009 novel Skinwalker and glad I did Cause it s better than a bag of Lays potato chips.First of all Hunter serves up a family sized helping of HAVEATYOU in the form of a leather wearing, shotgun toting and motorcycle riding Cherokee Skinwalker name of Jane Yellowrock Jane is a tall drink of water whose special Urban Fantasy mojo is being a skinwalker, a kind of Native American were person, especially in regard to her a [...]

      I had so many problems with this novel that once I start, I ll probably go on for a while.So instead, let s start with a positive note Hunter s take on supes Her always on edge vamps, witches and the skinwalker myth were well done all of them are pretty balanced power wise and a good addition to UF lit.Then there were some other good things, too Her version of New Orleans and the Cherokee culture for example.But there were two huge issues that kind of ruined the experience for me the writing sty [...]

      4.25 A buddy read with the Wednesday UF group BBB This was cool I know, it sounds silly and Minimalistic, but I had fun reading it It is not a secret that I am a fan of all things Fantasy, but I do have a soft spot for Golden Age Urban Fantasy , mostly written between 1995 2005 This one falls in this category and I was not disappointed It had everything a UF should have with its own unique flavor Jane is a Skinwalker, a native American Cherokee heritage, who at one point in her life had discover [...]

      Just so you know, I hate myself when I do this but I just cannot read this book any longer I feel as though I m punishing myself for something I haven t even done yet and I m certain what ever it is I am yet to do is not that bad The premise of a badass skin walking detective solving mysteries for vamps and other supernatural beings in the south of America was alluring but ultimately deceptive The descriptive prose was tiresome, her progress on the mission dragged, there were constant interrupti [...]

      3.5 StarsTime for a new UF series buddy read with.Jane Yellowrock is an interesting heroine to base a series around She wasn t exactly what I was expecting because she is a shapeshifter Not a were, that is different she actually can take the form of almost anything given the correct genetic material But she also shares one body with something she calls beast and I liked the way that this is explored in this book When she is in Beast s form those are the thoughts that are in the forefront and so [...]

      This is of a 3.5 star book.Jane Yellowrock is one bad ass main character She rides Bitsa bits of this bits of that motorcycle , carries a big gun, lots of weapons and oh yeah she can change into animals Mainly a mountain lion named Beast I loved the setting in this book New Orleans with lots a vamp action There isn t any sex in the book but sexual attractions that Jane has with some of the characters.Well and me developing a girl crush and wanting to hump her leg.

      Jane Yellowrock, a shape shifting bounty hunter, is hired to hunt down a rogue vampire in New Orleans I have no idea how successful she is in the end, or who the vamp is, because 161 pages in than halfway into the book basically nothing plot related has happened Jane describes her outfits Jane describes her beeeeeautiful flowing hair Jane bemoans how much she has to eat all the time because shape shifting takes mad calories, and makes fun of women who eat salad Jane just puts on a little lipsti [...]

      4.5 stars.You know how sometimes you see a book or series popping up on your GR feed and you re just not sure if it s for you You add it to your tbr list you take it off again you hmm and ha becomes annoying because you know now you will have to read it just to see normally when I am undecided in this way, when I eventually cave in and read the book, my worst fears are realised and then I can say to myself see I knew there was a reason I was unsurewell that s taught me No Well maybe it s just me [...]

      Skinwalker was a good introduction to the world of Jane Yellowrock, skinwalker She knew little about her past, only that she was part Cherokee, and that she could shift into the form of animals And that she shared her consciousness with the soul of an animal, who she called Beast Jane makes a living as rogue vampire hunter, and she s very good Now she s in New Orleans, hired by a prominent vampire who happens to run a prostitution house And this job is going to a very complicated one.Jane is a v [...]

      Quick Take I wasn t bowled over by this story, but overall it was enjoyable The protagonist is unique and striking, despite nominal comparisons to other urban fantasy heroines.Okay, so I told myself right at the beginning of this book not to compare this character to two other seemingly similar UF protagonists Janet Begay of the Stormwalker books, or Mercy Thompson of the Mercedes Thompson books For the most part this was easy to do, as Jane Yellowrock s similarities only go as far as the Native [...]

    15. Denisa on said:

      This book for me Wow It was such an unexpected read I mean, yeah, I expected it to be a good one, maybe even a really good one, but not this good What I loved the most is the fact that you get the animal s Beast s POV It s the first book where I ve seen this and I absolutely loved it I felt like reading Faulkner s The Sound and The Fury, where you see the story from the crazy person s POV And I really really enjoy the change Plus, the whole plot was something new, a view spoiler skinwalker vampi [...]

    16. Werner on said:

      Supernatural fiction is a favorite genre of mine, and I have a soft spot for strong heroines who can kick some butt when necessary so naturally, I thought a book that appealed to both interests might be rewarding But that didn t begin to prepare me for how much I liked this one In this series opener, Faith Hunter has created one of the most original and vividly realized fictional protagonists to come down the pike in a long time, and established herself in my eyes as one of the genre s most outs [...]

      Got a bit bored here and there but overall enjoyed it I couldn t connect completely with the main character, Jane, but I did like her I didn t much care for Beast, I mostly skipped her parts, the writing from her POV was too confusing for me I d have also liked a bit romance, there was pretty much nothing except for the flirting As for the love interests, none of those guys really excited me, so a bit of a disappointment as well I found some stuff lacking but I think I ll still give the second [...]

      Well, I m putting this down for now I m at 23% and it s not clicking with me It s not exactly boring, but I m not in the mood I don t really like Beast, to be honest I don t like reading those sections where Beast takes over and talks in Jane s mind Strange sound Look up There On ledge, one, two stories Too high to leap It clung to window ledge Looking down Laughing I growled, spat It jumped High, to roof top, running Not hiding escape I raised head Screamed frustration Echoed Wild.That is just [...]

      Just finished Faith Hunter s first book in the Jane Yellowrock series Skinwalker This is what I thought of it The author s fluid writing and character construction are close to flawless Jane s other half I m not talking about a guy is this view spoiler almost childish Beast hide spoiler that has fun teasing her in all the wrong situations and I found their distinct voices extremely well interwoven Jane s habit of giving nicknames is hilarious Troll for Tom, Bruiser for George, the Joe for Rick S [...]

      3.5 starsThis was an entertaining way to spend Friday night yeah, I know, exciting life right I m still sitting on the fence about Jane Yellowrock, but there are some threads of the story that give me hope for the series.Faith Hunter, the author, attended a conference here in Calgary a couple of years ago, which put Jane Yellowrock on my radar, but it s taken me a while to get to her Like Jane, Faith claims Cherokee heritage which is reflected in this first book Jane has a certain charisma, alth [...]

      Skinwalker is a dark yet thrilling novel, giving an unexpected take on the paranormal subgenre with a great main character I think the book was quick to go straight to tropes, but otherwise I really enjoyed it.

    26. ✨Susan✨ on said:

      Getting to know Jane was half the fun of the book, she is different, smart and has a believable personality A Cherokee descendant that has received a rare paranormal gift that she does not have much background or knowledge of We find out and learn about her as she does The story had just the right amount of characters and paranormals to make it exciting but not over the top New Orleans was a great backdrop for a rouge vampire hunt The choppiness of the verbiage while she is in her skinwalker sta [...]

    27. Donna on said:

      Jane Yellowrock has become my newest book heroine, I rank her up there with Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels Jane Yellowrock character is vulnerable on the inside but hides behind bravado, a strong show of sarcasm and wit She also calls them like she see them, and that including giving people she meets instant nicknames, which were good for a few laughs for example one character who looked like he belonged in the WWF so Jane called WWF instead of by his real name The most appealing characteristic [...]

      Good, solid urban fantasy with all the usual trappings Rick s a dick RTC.

      I don t think there s necessarily anything wrong with this book It was very thoroughly thought out and well written It just wasn t to my tastes I was bored, and everything was so detailed that the book was a slow, slow read After the first third of introductory description, the description didn t stop It kept on, and I resorted to scanning the book to the end to keep from DNF ing.Despite a very boring storyline and likely not continuing the series, I find I like Jane Yellowrock as the protagonis [...]

      4.5 starsSo feel free to tell me, I told you so For all the people who have been trying to get me to read SKINWALKER, you were right I loved it I loved that Jane Yellowrock, regardless of her age, is a mature character, a thinker, a learner, a planner, as well as a fighter Despite my previous distain for changing voices, I loved the voice of The Beast It is so expertly done that it is easy to get into that character, like her, root for her She really is a partner in the story with her own presen [...]
