Dark Queen (Jane Yellowrock #12) Reviews
Well, it was a good story. The author tried to take unpredictable twist, but the avid reader in me saw them coming especially the end. So that I don't spoil it, if you've read, if it's true, I may end my journey with Jane Yellowrock.
Let me just say I don't like Jane much. Tell me how poor Rick is the villain in most readers eyes. He flirted with women in the name of duty for his job. How is that different than Bruiser holding Jane down as Leo took her blood without her permission those many book ...more

Dark Queen is the 12th installment in author Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series. Series overview for those who haven't :::shocked face:: read the series yet. Warning number one: don't think you can jump into this story without having read the previous books in the series. Doesn't work, and there is so much that has happened that you will be utterly confused and disappointed. Second, this is an urban fantasy series featuring shapeshi ...more
Oh how I love this series! It is everything an urban fantasy lover could dream of! Jane Yellowrock is a uniquely creative character with abilities and powers far and beyond even her own comprehension. Yet, she is also a very “every-woman” - one who has faults, who struggles, who has insecurities. She loves deeply, worries about those under her care and does her very best - amidst her own flaws and failures - to do what is honorable.
This installment is the perfect example of the strength ...more
I’m going to have to go with 3.5 stars here, as I was a bit disappointed. The story was convoluted, overly wordy, and I honestly didn’t particularly enjoy parts of it. The storyline drags the reader all over the place, and I skimmed through portions. Subplots were brought up (like Rick, and Jane’s newly found ‘brother’); and the threads left hanging, apparently for the next book. The wordbuilding, however, is very good as always; and the ending was a game changer for the series.

It’s too complicated for a 4. I keep having to try and remember all the stuff that happened, that was still a bit too complicated at the time, plus keep straight all the stuff that is being set up for future books.
Better than a 3 because a whole bunch of things finally happen after being built up for the last few books.
I can’t help but feel that Jane is becoming a bit too Anita Blake. Wait, I know that she’s much MUCH better as a character and as a person, and has none of the over-wro ...more
Thanks to Netgalley and Berkley publishers for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Faith, you've destroyed me. You wrote this masterpiece, filled to the brim with countless emotions. You created these characters that I've come to care about over the years. You have been guiding them towards this showdown with the European Vamps for the last half of the series. But what you haven't been doing us is preparing us for JUST HOW HARD IT WOULD BE. You didn't prepare me to have my ...more
This book left me stunned and amazed. I love this series and when I saw that I could get a copy via NetGalley, I leaped at the chance.
This was written as a finale of sorts and tied up the story lines. The European Vampires have challenged the Master of the City of New Orleans, Leo, in a winner take all duel. Skinwalker and Enforcer for the MOC, Jane Yellowrock and her crew are preparing for this event. Jane has a long, complicated history and a man, skinwalker shows up on her doorstep claiming t ...more
