First Thought when Finished: Blood Cross sealed the deal: I am totally invested in Jane/Beast (not so much their love life though)!

Overall Thoughts: Oddly enough on paper, I really shouldn’t like this series as much as I do. There is a love triangle. There is a small bit of angst (dual personalities lend to that). Jane at times has a very “young” type of attitude. However, I am really digging the mystery and world building involved with the Jane Yellowrock series. In this particular story, I enjoyed getting to know her best friend and kiddos. Also the rogue storyline was freaking amazing and the end gutted me! I won’t say it caused tears but it did cause me to gasp. Faith knows how to pack a punch and that is why I overlook the elements that drive me crazy.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Khristine Hvam / Length: 14 hrs and 48 mins

Khristine does an amazing job with Jane/Beast. She is one of my favorite narrators but this seems to be her sweet spot. She nails the emotion, pacing, and “bite your nails” moments with such accuracy that you just get swept up into the story. Great job!

Final Thoughts: I have already read book 3 and got my hands on book 4 & 5 (in audio of course)!

    There is not really a love triangle, and not all that much romance, of course men want Jane but she does not give in so easily, don’t worry about that. I am so happy you loved this one Felicia, this is one of my favourite UF series. I love Beast!

    I really do like Faith Hunter – I’ve read her Rogue Mage series and I keep hoping and praying she writes more to it (she has a RPG for it). I keep meaning to read this Jane b/c I did read a SS on Jane and I really liked it! Not sure about the love triangle, tho πŸ™
