SKINWALKER is the first book in the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter.

  • Point of view:1st person
  • Tense: Past
  • Setting: New Orleans
  • Sexual Content: N/A


I really enjoyed this story. I couldn’t put it down till I finished the book.

Skinwalker is the story of Jane when she goes to New Orleans for a job working for the vampires. Katie the vampire that hires Jane knows that Jane is not human but can’t tell what she is. Which Jane wants to keep it that way.

In this story we see Beast or Jane’s other half more. Jane had to hunt a rogue vampire that the vampire council needs to have taken care of. Jane met Rick and Antoine. Antoine is a male witch and Jane knows it, but Rick is something else.

To find out what happens go grab your copy of Skinwalker.

I give Skinwalker 5 stars. Jane is my favorite character. She is strong, independent, but knows when she needs help. Jane is a very likable character. I would recommend this whole series to anyone who loves paranormals with a Native American twist to it. Review of book 2 Blood Cross coming soon.
