Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire—but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs....

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.

Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….


Finally girlfriend its about dang time!

Broken Soul definitely has Jane hitting a few major milestones in her life as far as emotionally, mentally and physically. I was beginning to worry if she wouldn’t finally start to move past certain things and I am really glad that here she has made progress in the areas that were starting to bug me.

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Think about that rhyme and sub in vamp and blood and its about how much bleeding, biting and feeding is going on in this novel. I was thinking at one point that I might start hitting action overload there for awhile. We see training fights, ambushes, attacks, things that go boom, shower scenes (what’s up with all the shower scenes in this series!?) and a host of other kinds of action. I barely had time to breath before we were moving onto the next action scene. I can tell you one thing – I literally read this in one evening – though I saved the last big action scene and wrap up to have with my breakfast the next morning. I’m all about starting the day off right you know?

The skinny and the low

It seems the odds are always stacked against Jane and in each new novel she’s coming up against some bigger and badder challenge. This time while the book description seems to be focused on the Euro vamps visit that really is not what this story is about. This is more of a PREP book for when the Euro vamps visit. Instead there are an entirely two different plot lines that are going on here that aren’t even really touched on in the book description. So it wouldn’t be any fun now would it if I went and told you about them. Just know that Jane finally gets somewhere romantically, her and Beast really connect, and she finds out many secrets that her employer has been hiding from her. But then when AREN’T vamps hiding things from her. All of these things makes me wonder how long the author plans to run this series for and just where the overall main story arc for Jane is headed.

Stalk me!

    I do believe that I’m still stuck at the third installment. I liked Jane (especially her beast), but I didn’t LOVE her for some reason. It’s about time that Yellowrock made some progress in her love life, however it’s a damn shame that it has taken eight novels. I read somewhere that Hunter was aiming for 20+ books which is a HUGE deterrent.
