Publisher's Summary

For the first time - in one Audible-exclusive collection - it's 13 stories of Jane Yellowrock, the shape-shifting skinwalker and vampire hunter for hire whose business card reads, "Have Stakes - Will Travel". Jane carries inside her the soul of her Beast, the mountain lion's soul which merged with hers when she accidently performed black magic as a child. Now, she and her Beast stalk the dark streets of New Orleans, bringing rogue vampires true death.
In Cat o' Nine Tales, you'll discover how Jane turned into a big cat for the first time; how she and Molly became friends; how Rick LaFleur got his tattoos. You'll go along on some of Jane's early vamp hunts. You'll even hear two short tales through Bruiser's eyes.
Once you experience these stories set in the fantastic world of this New York Times best-selling series, you'll surely agree with Kim Harrison that Jane Yellowrock is "smart, sexy and ruthless".
The stories included in Cat o' Nine Tales are: "WeSa and the Lumber King"
"The Early Years"
"Cat Tats"
"Signatures of the Dead"
"First Sight"
"Blood, Fangs and Going Furry"
"Dance Master"
"Cajun With Fangs"
"Golden Delicious"
"Beneath a Bloody Moon"
"Black Water"

Critic Reviews

"Khristine Hvam is an outstanding narrator.... Hvam brings warmth and realism to Hunter's unusual characters and adds depth to the ambiance of the New Orleans settings. Her performance is splendid as she carefully creates a multitude of male and female characters, human and otherwise. The entire package flies by quickly, and listeners will want more." (AudioFile)

Wonderful Backstories / Short glimpses-great

I almost wish I'd been able to read these before starting the series..this Hunter/Hvam compilation of 9 short stories is filled with excellent glimpses into the pasts of Jane, Ricky-bo, Molly and Jane's growing friendship as well as being super stand alone stories.

I very much enjoyed learning how/why Rick got his tats-a scary story in in it's self. Jane's intro as beast to Angie-baby as well as 7 other stories.

If you've enjoyed the series but dislike short stories I encourage you to buy this. Hvam does her usual fantastic voice narration with sympathy and drama.

Enjoy! I sure did!

More of Everything Jane Yellowrock (and friends)!

Cat o' Nine Tales, is a delightful mix of previously published favorite short stories about Jane Yellowrock, many through the eyes of her friends and adversaries, and two new novellas wading into adventures connected with her weir-tainted love interest and his extended family.

For die-hard Jane Yellowrock readers who've read everything in print they could find, the new stories included in this collection will absolutely titillate, as they divulge more information about Rick LaFleur, and introduce a whole new group of characters to the Yellowrock saga with adventure to spare!

Faith Hunter continues to showcase her mastery of urban fantasy short story thrillers in this excellent collection, and I highly recommend the read.

Backstory and novellas that bridge the series

I love Jane Yellowrock books! These are on my auto buy and we run them in the car for journeys. Cat o' nine tales are novellas which start way back before Jane walked out of the forest and was taken in by the childrens home.

You get to know how Ricky-bo got his tats, what Bruiser really thought when he first met her and that dance. They bridge the gaps between the books that you didn't know existed.

Lots of Background

Would you listen to Cat o' Nine Tales again? Why?

I will especially selected stories. It's a book you can dip in to at any time. Each short story is a complete entity and suitable for journeys or waiting rooms.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

My favourite story is Dance Master - really loved it.

Any additional comments?

So well written as always - a must for Yellowrock fans
