Publisher's Summary

Set in the same world as the New York Times best-selling Jane Yellowrock novels, an all-new series starring Nell Ingram, who wields powers as old as the earth.
When Nell Ingram met skinwalker Jane Yellowrock, she was almost alone in the world, exiled by both choice and fear from the cult she was raised in, defending herself with the magic she drew from her deep connection to the forest that surrounds her.
Now, Jane has referred Nell to PsyLED, a Homeland Security agency policing paranormals, and agent Rick LaFleur has shown up at Nell's doorstep. His appearance forces her out of her isolated life into an investigation that leads to the vampire Blood Master of Nashville.
Nell has a team - and a mission. But to find the Master's kidnapped vassal, Nell and the PsyLED team will be forced to go deep into the heart of the very cult Nell fears, infiltrating the cult and a humans-only terrorist group before time runs out....

Faith Hunter hits it out of the Park!

Any additional comments?

Blood of the Earth is a spin-off from the popular Jane Yellowrock series. Ms. Hunter has done a great job creating a book that stands alone, so it is not necessary to read any of the Jane Yellowrock novels before starting Blood of the Earth. And even more impressive is the complete lack of the dread "InfoDump". Background information is added bit by bit as part of the natural flow of the narrative. Amazing writing.

The story follows Nell, a magic user with a connection to the old growth forest on her farm. Earth Magic, Blood Magic, Nasty Cult leaders, Vampires, and Law enforcement types hunting an assortment of evil doers keep the action going cover to cover.

For fans of the original Jane Yellowrock series, the major crossover character is PsyLed Special agent Rick LaFleur. Who many will be happy to know, is not a happy camper. Jane is frequently mentioned, Alex Younger makes a brief contribution, as does the Vampire Clan Glass (one of the twin Ming sisters clan). Paka the African Black Leopard mate to Rick, is part of the PsyLed team chasing the bad guys. (Things that make you go hummm,,, watch for Paka's effect on Nell's feral cats)

Kristine Hvam does her usual wonderful job with the narration.

Great writing, interesting world, new characters, a compelling woman who grows into herself in the course of the book. Highly recommended for long time fans, or first time readers. And the best part? The second book in the trilogy with be out later this year!!!!

Something Old and Something New :-)

Faith Hunter steps outside of her beloved Jane Yellowrock series to give us something old and something new.

This series follows the PhyLed unit of Jane's ex-boyfriend, Rick, as he works a case with new recruits. Our leading lady is an exiled cult member, Nell, who has to adjust to having so many new people and gadgets in her world.

The development of Nell's character is the best part of the book. To watch her go from a sheltered church girl to a smart mouthed consultant for Rick is quite humorous. Not sure if it was intended, but the book gives some hope to those Jane+Rick fans.

The book hits on topics like under age marriage, submissive women, and church cults. I feel like Faith Hunter did a great job of telling the story without trying to force the reader to feel a certain way towards those controversial topics.

Overall, this isn't Jane Yellowrock. It reminds me of a diet soda... Better than nothing but doesn't pack a punch like the real thing. There isn't alot of action. The characters have milder personalities The books main focus is introducing the characters. It's a good first book and the makings of a great series.

Promising start.

This book starts out slow but stick with it, it's worth it. This is a very promising start to a new series, and a great spin off from the Jane Yellowrock series. The characters are well written as usual and the story was good. Hvam did an excellent job as always and really helped to bring the characters and the story to life. Will definitely be getting the next book.

Another Good One from Faith Hunter

Nell Ingram appears in one of Jane Yellowrock's short stories. She is a complex character and as always with Faith Hunter the story line is detailed and involved. I didn't see the end of the book until we reached it. I read so much that I can often tell what is going to happen in advance but not with Faith Hunter. I will buy this series as it appears.

A must for fans of Faith Hunter

I wasn't sure if I was ready to move on past the Jane Yellowrock series since I loved it so much. But this story was awesome & I can't wait to get into Book 2. Kristine Hvam does a great job on the narration too, as always.
