Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter

Jane Yellowrock, Book 10


I decided to try something different this time. Normally, when I've finished a book in this series, I immediately go to the computer and review it. My reviews end up being something like 'I CAN'T SPEAK!!!!!' But this time, I gave myself an entire week to process what I've read so that my review is more coherent.

On to the review!

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!! Okay ... The Witch Conclave is about to happen and their are some witches doing some really shady shit. Have you ever read a book and feel so horrible for the MC that you NEED to figure out how to help them? That's how this was going for me. Jane was in so much shit. Then again, she's always in a lot of shit, but one pile of shit left her unable to shift and nearly dead again. *dies* There was also a point where she was in her bloodhound form and my heart was racing because she can't stay that way for too long! Not to mention, a long thought-to-be dead vampire is found.

Two words: Yellowrock Clan.

When I read those two words ... I put my Kindle down, looked at myself in the mirror and said "HOW FUCKING COOL IS THAT?!" I felt like #squadgoals had a new meaning.

Anyway ... Jane's house is now overrun with the members of her clan, the Truebloods are back hanging out and AngieBaby is getting scarier with each passing book.

I'm so failing at this review. I can't help it.

Every single positive thing I've ever said about this series still applies. This book is probably on the top of my list now based on the amount of action alone. I got literally everything I've been wanting up to this point and feel free. Like I just made the best decision of my life and that was to read this book. I devoured it, as I do all the JY books.

Read it. It's amazing. Plot twists are crazy. I will continue to repeat this: Smaller details in other books will always come back to bite you in books to come. Remember that.

What I want in the future? I want explanation of Edward Hartley's fall from grace. I'm still pissed at RickyBo with the way he left things with Jane. And although she's happy with Bruiser, I still want Rick's face bitten off Walking Dead style. I always want more AngieBaby. But now I'm hoping for more of Evan Jr. I'd like to see what he can do.

As always, this book is amazing. This series is amazing. It's my number one recommendation always.
