Dark Queen (Jane Yellowrock #12) Reviews
Eagerly anticipated book in this series, I am blown away. B.L.O.W.N A.W.A.Y. For those who have not read the first eleven books in this series, it is a must read prior to this one. In Dark Queen, the intimidating European Vampires finally show up. The build up has been coming along with scary powerful Vampires ready to take Leo and his coven down. The preparation has made it stressful for Jane and her team who have to protect Leo.
I thought this installment would be all doom and gloom. It would ...more
Even though I was prepared for the worst event thanks to Steven, Dark Queen wrecked me. I don't know how to describe how much it affected me or how much it got me speculating about the future. I have my own hopes and ideas about where things can go from here but I hardly dare think them let alone say them out loud so I don't jinx it *settles in for a long wait*
I've been hoping for a resolution to the EV plotline for a few books now and I finally got my wish. I actually expected the duels to take ...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
I was beyond excited to get my hands on an early reviewer copy of the Dark Queen! I have definitely become a fan of Jane Yellowrock and after the last book, Cold Reign, I was on pins and needles to see where this newest installment would take the story. Dark Queen is the twelfth book, and was supposed to be the last book, in the Jane Yellowrock series but thankfully that is no longer the case. With that said, Dark Queen is an amazing book that brings together a lot of the previous open threads a ...more
I'm sort of feeling speechless after finishing this book last night. And I'm definitely in the midst of a mega book hangover.
Everything that has been building up over the last several books towards the European suckheads--er, I mean vamps--coming to Louisiana's shores finally came to a conclusion. Alliances were made, new clans created, unexpected enemies exposed. As usual, Jane was a rebel and didn't do as she was told. We learned a bit more about her past, and someone new and important walked ...more
Sigh, I was so happy to be back with Jane and the gang that I really didn't want this book to end. Then as I was reading, with this being the end of a story arc (the Sangre Duello), I was afraid it would be the end of the series. Jane and Beast have become one of my very favorite heroine pairs in urban fantasy, and I hope they stay around for the foreseeable future.
Dark Queen picks up at the end of Cold Reign, with all the New Orleans vamps and Jane preparing for the Sangre Duello with the Euro ...more
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
I love the world Hunter has created with the Jane Yellowrock series, and many of its characters have become favorites. The previous several books all have been leading up to this final face-off between Leo and the European vamps as well as their respective allies. All that build-up. All that tension. Aaaaand...I found the story satisfying and frustrating in not so equal measures.
First the good stuff:
Over the course of the series, Jane has grown from a loner to one who has built her own ...more
