As Enforcer to the vampire Master of the City of New Orleans, Jane Yellowrock stakes her reputation and her life on keeping her territory safe. But Leo has been issued a blood challenge by the emperor of the European vampires, who seeks to usurp all of his power and possessions. If Leo loses the match to the death, the city will be forfeit, and the people of New Orleans will suffer the consequences. Jane can't let that happen.
Preparing for the duel requires all of Jane's focus, but with so much supernatural power in play, nothing goes according to plan. She has to rely on herself and the very few people she knows she can trust to stand and fight. Only two things are guaranteed: Nothing is sacred, and no one is safe.

Another great adventure from Faith Hunter!
Any additional comments?
Khristine Hvam does her usual stunning job bringing to life the characters in Dark Queen. Great narration. That's the easy part of the review. The hard part is writing a review without out spoilers. Many story arcs come together so going into detail will ruin the surprise as the plot twists and turns. Faith Hunter is great at providing series background so a new reader can pick up any book in the series, and not get lost. Dark Queen will be enjoyed more after reading earlier books in the series. Jane's off balance in the first part of the book, dealing with friends, family and old enemies and trying to master her evolving magic. There are new threats to the Vampires of NOLA, and to the witches she has sworn to protect. The long anticipated arrival of the European vampires, and the Blood Duel take make up the second half of the book, and many of the chess moves Leo has made over the centuries finally become apparent. Over all this is a great book, a wild ride, and the ending a major surprise.

YES-------Just YES--you must read this book
You must read this book !
There is so much that happens.
First, a new face brings confusion and emotions to the surface. The unknown and deceptions show their ugly faces. Step by step you will be carried to the pinnacle, to find things are not as they should be. Death and unknown magics interact to change the outcomes, as the scheduled battles continue. Then, when Jane can only react to a shocking outcome, what should be the end-----to find there is still more—more in battle, more in pain, more decisions to make in an instant of time. The balance of what was, has changed. So much loss to overcome. Life now, is not what it was, and yet one truth continues—that is the glue holding those who remain together—love and family bonds.
FOR ALL ----LISTEN/READ THE BOOK
Faith Hunter---you have outdone yourself. I will count the days for the next addition to Jane Yellowrock series. BRAVO !!
Khristine Hvam—Amazing job. Everyone should hear your narration on this story. BRAVO ! !

16 hours feels like 3
When listening to a Faith Hunter audio book narrated by Khristine Hvam time just flies by and before you know it you are at the end of the book... how does that happen?!
This book was the crescendo up to now ... a long anticipated wait and this book did not disappoint. Heavens I will not give any spoilers away but tissues at the ready .... in a very Jane Yellowrock way

This time we see and feel all of Jane’s strengths and weaknesses. Especially hers doubts and fears. The real inside of her. Beast is in fine spirit and offers words of wisdom and acts instinctively.
Kristine bought this book to life again and I lived it alongside Jane, her family and foes. At the end there were tears running down my face, it was so moving and full off things that might be.
Even if I never meet Jane again, I have been left with hope.
Thank you Faith Hunter
