Faith Hunter continues her Jane Yellowrock series with the 10th book, Shadow Rites, in which Jane and her entire crew get caught up in some extreme magical attacks enacted by two angry witches out for revenge. The witches and vampires have hated each other for centuries and have enacted wars to rid the earth of each other’s species. In previous books, the ruling councils of witches and vampires in the U.S. have grown closer to a détente, and in this novel they are scheduled for a formal meeting to adopt new rules for dealing fairly with one another. There are some witches, with powerful magical abilities, who refuse to accept the easing of tensions and proceed to magically attack Jane and her crew throughout this book.

It’s always a good day when I get to spend time in this excellent urban fantasy world that Faith Hunter has created. Jane has grown and allowed herself to become attached to her unusual slew of friends, which in this book now include a vampire Primo, a werewolf and a Grindylow. My only negative comment about this latest title in the series has to do with something I’ve noticed over the past couple of books. The descriptions of the magical workings and other paranormal situations are very complicated and, at times, difficult to follow. I found myself skimming some of it because it was doing my head in! The denouement also feels a little rushed, and I would have liked to have seen a final image of how Jane’s home is settling in with the new characters and a preview of the status of the upcoming visit from the European Council of Vampires, which has been alluded to in the past several books. Other than that, as always, I enjoyed spending time in Ms. Hunter’s unique world.

When I read "Dark Heir", the previous book in the Jane Yellowrock series, my only disappointment was that some of the elements that made the earlier books enjoyable were being over-shadowed by Vamp politics and that Jane, in her new Enforcer role, was becoming harder to like.

I started "Shadow Rites" in the hope that I'd get more Jane and more Beast (the Puma soul that she accidentally used black magic to steal when she was a child). I got all that and more.

As usual, Faith Hunter delivers a labyrinthine plot, vivid action scenes, new sets of magical practices and a must-read-the-next-chapter-before-I-sleep momentum. From the opening page, Jane is under attack and the pressure keeps on build as she wades through battle, betrayal and blood.

In addition, Beast finally gets the air-time she deserves, playing a significant role in the plot and also working directly with Jane, even when Beast is Alpha. Angie-babie, Jane's young niece, shows how scarily powerful her witchcraft already is and chooses to take a blood vow that is bound to have consequences later in the series.

Although the plot is about a conflict between witches and vampires, this time the focus is on the emerging "Jane Yellowrock Clan" and extended family that includes the Younger brothers, a family of witches, a werewolf. an indentured vampire and perhaps even an Honorio.

"Shadow Rites" was an entertaining read all the way through.Now I'm looking forward to book 11 of which only the title "Cold Reign" has been announced. I'm hoping it will see the arrival of the European Vamps.

Way too many editing problems made me drop rating a point. Jane and her crew take on the security for the Mithran/Witch conclave and it's a nightmare. Tension ratches up throughout the whole story, with Jane and the people she cares about getting targeted attacks by unknown witches. Everyone gets involved and lots of hints about the upcoming European Vamp visitation.

Shadow Rites is another good, solid Urban Fantasy book in the Jane Yellowrock series. It is not as good as the previous installment but still very good.

It is a well written book with all the usual characters from the series. I really like Jane and her team, the bantering between them, the snarky comments, the way they work so well as a team and, of course, their ass kicking abilities. I am quite looking forward to see how the team develops with the newest addition to it. Let us just say that Jane did not see that one coming.

The story in this book focuses more on witches than vampires. Sure, a main element of the plot is the master vampire being rescued from the pit but the main bad guys in this installment are witches.

The book starts off right way on this path with a magical attack on Jane and from then on things go from bad to worse. Especially since Jane’s own abilities seems to be somewhat inhibited. This is a part of the story that I was not so found of. I really do not like when an author invents some way to handicap my bad ass heroes. Also, I did not like the stupid way that Jane blundered around before actually getting a grip on things. Come one, you have just been magically attacked and you do not really know what happened. Would it not be a good idea to try to investigate a wee bit before just continuing as usual and put yourself in harms way and discover things when shit are raining from the fan?

Apart from that I quite enjoyed the book. There was a lot of action of course although, as I wrote, I would have liked it more if Jane would have been more of her usual self.

Looking forward to the next installment. ( )
