This is the second book in the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter and it was just as awesome as the first book. It is a fast-paced book with wonderful action scenes and wonderful characters. I would definitely recommend reading the first book first, if you liked the first book you should like this one.

This book picks up where the last left off. Jane is still in New Orleans and is still on contract to hunt down the maker of the rogue vampires. She is joined by the witch Molly and her children. As Jane tries desperately to track down the rogue maker, she finds out that somehow the witches of New Orleans are involved. Can Jane track down the rogue maker before Molly and her children are forced into the witchy problems of New Orleans?

Like the first book this book is very densely written and full of action. Jane very rarely stops to catch her breath, yet despite of all the action the characters are intriguing, are well-developed and have a lot of depth to them. In this book we finally learn more about Jane's personal history and we also learn a lot more about the Vampires' Curse and their origins.

Also as in the first book there is a little chemistry going on between some of the characters. Jane/Beast continue to find Bruiser intriguing, and undercover cop Rick is also after Jane for at least one date. Jane and Leo, the Master Vampire, of New Orleans have very strained relations as Leo deals with his depression over the death of his son. Molly and her kids bring a nice element to the story and force Jane to show her soft side some of the time too. This helps to make Jane a very believable character.

The world Hunter has created is very interesting and different from many of the paranormal worlds out there. She really broadens the world in this book and gives us insight into how the Vampires tick. She does a great job at writing a tight plot without a lot of excess fluff. Jane knows what she wants to do and gets there, most of the time, dealing with the unexpected in unique and interesting ways.

If I have one gripe about this story it would be that Jane almost dies a number of times, sometimes I was left wondering if Jane was such a fabulous vampire slayer how did she get herself almost killed a number of times in less than a couple days? That being said Jane has the wonderful ability to survive the impossible and it makes for a heroine that is interesting, yet believable.

I am eagerly awaiting the next Jane Yellowstone book. Originally Hunter was contracted for three Jane Yellowstone book and I hope that she writes a couple more after that (not sixteen more mind you, but a few more would be nice)!

The 2nd SWEET book about Jane Yellowrock I was excited to get as I'd just finished the 5 star first story and was anxious to read what happens next. Faith Hunter has really got her storytelling down and this unique vampire hunter story is an interesting read, although it is predictable. Set in New Orleans, it reflects upon some interesting vampire history, doesn't rely on the last story to tell this tale and I really enjoyed the book, which I will not trade, but keep on my book shelf for repeat reads.

The second book starts off exactly where the first book ended. Never realized how involved and interesting vampire politics were. This book had so much action, suspense and angst I was completely wrung out when I finished. Just started book three and it has begun with a bang. Too early to tell how her relationships with Rick and George will turn out. George seems to really love her but the vampires have to come first. Not sure how Rick really feels about her beyond desire and companionship.
