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 doorstep. 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.
Shadow Rites begins with some weird magical action going on in Jane's house. There's fixing to be a big "peace" meeting between the vamps and witches, and it seems like Jane is smack dab in the middle of someone trying to start a war. It gets worse when someone attacks Jane.
Now, Jane and her friends must work together to figure it out before it is too late.
This book was another great addition to this series. I adored Jane and how she was willing to protect those she cares for. The only thing I was semi frustrated with was the relationship between Jane and Bruiser. I really wanted there to be more to it than that. I'm hoping soon something more happens between them.
But it was really interesting reading this one. I enjoyed it a whole lot, and I thought it was really good. It had a lot of action, some mystery and of course the sarcastic Jane who was going to kick ass no matter what.
