This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m covering the fourth entry in the Jane Yellowrock series. It’s Raven Cursed by Faith Hunter!

Plot Synopsis: The vampires of Asheville, North Carolina, want to establish their own clan, but since they owe loyalty to the Master Vampire of New Orleans they must work out the terms with him. To come up with an equitable solution, he sends an envoy with the best bodyguard blood money can buy: Skinwalker Jane Yellowrock.

Plot: The plot is intense from pretty much the first sentence till the end. I was surprised at how much occurred in this book. That all being said it’s not one of my favorite entries, probably because Agi One-Feather and Bruiser aren’t very present for this book. Bruiser in particular is quickly becoming a favorite character of mine.

Characters: We get to meet some new faces, of whom Adelaide Mooney is probably my favorite. Lots of old favorites like the B twins show up and so does Angie and Molly. Sadly G isn’t present at all during this book either which along with Bruiser being mostly absent is a bummer. G is quite snarky and I enjoy him quite a bit as well.

Overall: This is a solid entry in the series, but lacks some of the more colorful characters we’ve met in previous books.
