Library Journal Review

The world of Jane Yellowrock, vampire hunter and skinwalker, expands with this collection of 19 stories, including several fan favorites and two brand-new novellas. In "The Early Years," an 18-year-old Jane returns to the spot where she was found as a child and discovers the truth about her inner Beast. Other pieces offer more background on her supporting characters, such as witch Molly Everhart Trueblood in "Haints," and Rick LeFleur in "Cat Tats." Louisiana and the bayou serve as the steamy backdrop to Yellowrock's personal and professional situations. Verdict A heady mix of magic, blood, and claws, the stories in this collection follow a time line from the distant past to the present, allowing readers to see how Yellowrock and her friends have developed along the way.
