COLD REIGN by Faith Hunter

5 stars

In COLD REIGN, Jane Yellowrock #11, Jane finally takes on the much anticipated, dreaded European Vampires while dealing with her own changing magical nature. This book will get your heart racing and mind whirling in so many good ways. We have your sneaky Eurovamps coming to town before the official meeting under cover of a magically fueled storm that just will not let up. They are hiding in several places looking to divide and conquer, while doing all they can to kidnap, maim, and torture Leo, Gregoire, and their prime people, vamps and otherwise. Jane, with her associates and Bruiser, spends much of her time running back and forth between Vamp central attacks, strange human riots, and violence around the city while torrential rains and supernatural lighting nearly immobilizes NOLA. Revenant vampires are causing havoc and harm; they are much harder to put down than the usual ones so all of Jane’s fighting and supernatural skills are needed. There is so much amped up magic around that seems to be driving these revenants as well as the relentless tempest.

Jane has been having “issues” with her magic so she goes back to her Cherokee elders for help after getting advice from Angie baby’s angel. So much has changed with the way she deals with the supernatural domain and as usual, Jane is scrambling to figure out what the heck is going with that world and in her own body. The mystical state of her grey-in-between plays a big role here as well as Jane’s learning to control and use it.

On a personal front, Jane and Bruiser’s relationship seems to be going in a particular direction that is deeper and a bit scary for the loner that she is. Jane would rather fight off zombie vampires than deal with emotions especially her own. And who should show up but Jane’s old lying, cheating, heartbreaker ex-boyfriend, Ricky Bo. He is leading an investigation for PSYLED which is one of the many government agencies trying to deal with the chaos both on the human and supernatural front. Ricky Bo has more than a professional interest in Jane along with some unfinished business. People have strong feelings about Rick LaFleur so prepare to be riled up at their interactions.

Followers of the Jane Yellowrock series will be pleased to finally see some action between the dreaded Eurovamps and Leo, who as usual has so many plots and strategic moves going on, some dating back centuries, which are so complicated, it makes Jane’s head spin. As usual, Leo seems to delight in making Jane as uncomfortable as possible with his physical presence and sensuous innuendos while trying to trick her into doing his nefarious bidding. This book hits the ground running with such a thrill ride pace that you may feel breathless at the end, but well satisfied with the journey.
