Publisher's Summary

Jane Yellowrock has her hands full in the latest novel in the New York Times best-selling series that captures "the essence of urban fantasy" (SF Site).
Slaying vampires is child's play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans' supernatural players is another story....
Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her door. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.
A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit...undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it's up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war.

Great Urban Fantasy series

The witches are coming to Nola for a conclave, during which they will consider Leo, Master of the City's proposal for peace and co-operation between them and the vampires. Leo needs this peace accord in advance of a long-awaited visit from the European vampires. Yellowrock Securities is, of course, involved in every aspect of the arrangements. Tensions begin to heighten when an ancient vampire, thought to be true-dead, is discovered in a water-filled shaft, tortured and starved. The smell of witchcraft is all over the pit and witches also seem to be targeting Jane in particular.

Shadow Rites starts at a run and hardly stops, with some let-ups in the action for relationship building. Just about everyone who played a part in the previous nine books rates at least a mention; many are present for the action. There is even a brief exchange of information between Jane and former boyfriend, Rick LaFleur. I have to say that I wish Rick LaFleur would crawl back under the rock he came from for once and for all. The relationships among Bruiser, Jane and the rest of her friends and associates are progressing nicely. Jane finally has a "family" for the first time in her long life.

The audiobook is superbly narrated by Kristine Hvam, as always. Her interpretation of "Beast" is spot-on; I wish there were more passages with "Beast" in control in Shadow Rites. Great urban fantasy series!

Soon Good. I listened to it twice.

Faith Hunter you've done it again. I hope the next book is sooner then not--LOL. Jane Yellowrock is pushing herself to the hilt of her abilities again. The vamps, witches, Youngers and new additions are making her home a bit tight, but are good backup for the excitement when magic is flying everywhere. Thank you Faith, please keep this series going as long as you can.
