This was another of my favorite series delivering a fantasitic new book! I loved Jane in this - I sometimes felt like she needed to grow up a little in the previous novels, and she seemed to be doing just that in this one.

This was an exciting read with plenty of new developements to keep the series fresh and interesting. Lots a places for the story line to go.

Oh and I love Bruiser, not so much Ricky. I hope Beast takes the lead in Jane's love life. ( )

From a somewhat mediocre start this series has improved quite a lot. This book is a good mix of action, urban fantasy and research. I do like Jane’s new companions and I do especially like that she has become quite a bad-ass. By the way I am sure the usage of the word “bad-ass” will be censored by the ludicrous review filter at Amazon which I am quite frankly feed up with. I will not bother anymore to rewrite reviews of books intended for an adult audience if Amazon’s hypocritical review rules prevent me from using words that the rest of the world consider (and yes Amazon, the rest of the world is not just US) rather mild to say the least.

Anyway, with that frustration out of the way, I quite liked this book. As I wrote, Jane has become quite a bit of a bad-ass and she is indeed dealing out quite a bit of pain in this book. As usual the book is a mixture of action and investigative work. This time trying to track down the mysterious vampire (or should I say Mithran) decease and who is behind it.

The quest leads her on path that culminates in a somewhat spectacular confrontation with an ancient enemy of the skinwalkers. I quite liked this. The build up was well done, the action was well done, the final confrontation was well done.

Then I have to have to say that things went a bit sour. It feels a bit like the author desperately tried to create some final moments of tension. I would have been quite happy with the book more or less ending after the final clobbering between the vampire factions and the bad guy getting what deserved.

I would have been quite happy even after the very final revelation, which I have to say I did not see coming, but that shooting interlude just to mess things up between Jane and one of her (many) boyfriends just felt tiresome.

Bottom line is that I definitely think this book was the best in the series so far. Now I am looking forward to the next instalment in the series.

Wow! I loved it but I wish Jane could find a partner to be happy with! ( )

This book is action from the get-go. I appreciated some of the new characters, was surprised by some turn of events, liked learning more about her past/calling, and (I'll admit) seeing some vengeance done. Jane is still a great bad-ass, and that's a big part of why I keep reading. ( )
