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.

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 ! !

Another great story, very well read. But all the books are great. suppose I will have to start at book one and re-read the series.
I love all of the Jane Yellowrock books but this one is my favourite by far! From the first 'tap, tap tap tap' to the very last word I was hooked. The story is fantastic and had me both laughing and crying (don't listen to the epilogue whilst driving!). Not only was the story well written and captivating but Khristine's narration brought it to life in an absolutely spellbinding fashion. A masterpiece, well done!
