BLACK ARTS BY FAITH HUNTER BOOK REVIEW

Book Description

         Publication Date:         January 7, 2014
The New York Times bestseller
Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who always takes care of her own—no matter the cost….
When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace.
Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy—one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

Molly has finally forgiven Jane for killing her sister, so when something happens to her magic she knows that Jane will know who can help fix her problem. On her way to see Jane in New Orleans, Molly is kidnapped out of her hotel room before she can contact Jane when she hits town. Now Evan Trueblood, Molly’s husband, is in town thinking that Jane is deliberately keeping Molly from him. He is ready to blow her house down with gale force winds.  When some of Katie’s ladies, Bliss and Rachael go missing, she has to find them before something happens to them.
Jane’s week just keeps getting better and better, when Vamps start turning up true dead and all that is left is ash. It seems no one knows how it is happening. Leo also informs Jane that she will be the Enforcer for the Gather that will be hosted in New Orleans at the end of the week. Now she has a Gather to get ready for, find Molly, Rachael, and Bliss before something happens to them. Oh, and did I mention that Molly’s magic had turned into death magic. If Jane does not find her by a certain time frame she could die!
This series gets better and better as it progresses. The characters and story lines are well-developed, and I just love the characters. Some of the Minor characters in this book almost steal the show, like Molly’s kids(Angie and Evan Jr.), they are adorable. Faith Hunter delivers another awesome installment to her Jane Yellowrock series. I give Black Arts 5/5 stars, and recommend you start reading it today . If you have not read the series definitely start reading it, you will not be disappointed. The conversations that she has with Beast, the soul of the mountain lion within her, is sometimes  quite funny.
The first book in the series is  Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock, Book 1)

BEAST BEHAVING BADLY BY SHELLY LAURENSTON

beast behaving badlyBook Descriptionbuyamzon-button-plain

         Publication Date:         March 5, 2013
Some men just have more to offer. Like hard-muscled, shape-shifting Bo Novikov–part polar bear, part lion, pure alpha.  .  .Ten years after Blayne Thorpe first encountered Bo Novikov, she still can’t get the smooth-talking shifter out of her head. Now he’s shadowing her in New York–all seven-plus feet of him–determined to protect her from stalkers who want to use her in shifter dogfights. Even if he has to drag her off to an isolated Maine town where the only neighbors are other bears almost as crazy as he is.  .  .Let sleeping dogs lie. Bo knows it’s good advice, but he can’t leave Blayne be. Blame it on her sweet sexiness–or his hunch that there’s more to this little wolfdog than meets the eye. Blayne has depths he hasn’t yet begun to fathom–much as he’d like to. She may insist Bo’s nothing but a pain in her delectable behind, but polar bears have patience in spades. Soon she’ll realize how good they can be together. And when she does, animal instinct tells him it’ll be worth the wait.  .  .

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I love these characters. Blayne Thorpe and Bo o Novikov are two opposites that you would think that would not get along, but they are perfect together. They help to balance each other out. Bo Novikov  likes his world perfectly planned out to the last-minute, where as Blayne basically starts out planning her day but ends up flying by the seat of her pants. Her plans are always pushed back and she is always late. This drives Bo crazy. He hates to be late for anything, especially practice. Blayne is  a plumber by day and at night she is in a shifter roller derby team. She is a very hyper   wolf-dog hybrid and she is very scatterbrained . She is very loving and always helping someone even though they don’t thin they need it. Bo is a part polar bear and part lion, and they met years ago and she ran. This book has many laugh out loud moments that you want to make sure you don’t eat or drink anything while reading  so you don’t choke while reading. I really like it when Blayne torments Dee Ann who has been hired to guard her, but Blayne is not supposed to know.  Dee Ann thinks that Blayne is this empty-headed airhead, but in truth Blayne is smart just she is hyper active and basically has ADHD. She gets distracted easily.  I recommend Beast Behaving Badly and I give it 5/ 5 stars

THE BEAST IN HIM BY SHELLY LAURENSTON

the beast in himbuyamzon-button-plainBook Description

         Publication Date:         April 1, 2008
In The Mane Event, Shelly Laurenston introduced a whole new breed of heroes—sexy, shape-shifting hunks who redefine the term Alpha male. Now, in THE BEAST IN HIM, one gorgeous lone wolf is about to meet his match…Some things are so worth waiting for. Like the moment when Jessica Ward “accidentally” bumps into Bobby Ray Smith and shows him just how far she’s come since high school. Back then, Jess’s gangly limbs and bruised heart turned to jelly any time Smitty’s “all the better to ravish you with” body came near her. So, some things haven’t changed. Except now Jess is a success on her own terms. And she can enjoy a romp—or twenty—with a big, bad wolf and walk away. Easy.

The sexy, polished CEO who hires Smitty’s security firm might be a million miles from the lovable geek he knew, but her kiss, her touch, is every bit as hot as he imagined. Jess was never the kind to ask for help, and she doesn’t want it now, not even with someone targeting her Pack. But Smitty’s not going to turn tail and run. Not before proving that their sheet-scorching animal lust is only the start of something even wilder…

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I loved The Beast In Him, it was well written with well-developed characters and story line.  Anything Shelly Laurenston writes is a keeper. Smitty or Bobby Ray Smith and Jesse Ann have a past together. They have known each other while growing up. They were friends, and Smitty always came to her rescue when she was picked on and beat up. Now they meet again when Smitty’s company is doing the security for Jesse’s party which she is throwing for her company, in which she is CEO of a security system company.  He wants to be friends again and she does not want have anything to do with him.  Jesse has been in love with Smitty, but when he left town and did not even kiss her goodbye hurt her worse than anything could. Now he has to try to convince her that he wants her, and loves her. I loved all the chaos that Jesse Ann lives in, because she has no privacy or solitude to herself. There is always someone underfoot and it makes or some pretty humorous situations. There are parts where they are being attacked and there is some funny dialogue going on. Be warned  when you read this you will laugh quite a bit, so keep any liquids away from any electronic devices in case you spill your drink while laughing. I give The Beast In Him 5/5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW OF “BLOOD TRADE” BY FAITH HUNTER

Product DetailsJane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker, who shares her body with the soul of a mountain lion. This is BOOK 6 OF THE JANE YELLOWROCK NOVELS.  Jane has to help The Master of the Vampires in Natchez, Mississippi with a nasty problem of rogue vampires not following the Naturaleza. They believe humans are should be prey and nothing else.

When Jane gets there she meets a friend of hers from the orphanage that she lived in, and when her friend goes missing she takes over the care of her daughter. When she engages the rogue Vamps she notices something different about them that makes them harder to kill, even for her.

A simple job has turned into a job to stay alive, and find her friend so the child in her care will have a mother.

This series has continues to pull me in with each book. Each book continues Jane’s to unlock her past, and continue the character growth. I LOVE THIS SERIES.  SO I GIVE THIS BOOK A 5/ 5 STARS.
