Jane Yellowrock is in the Appalachian Mountains to recover: her last battle with the European vampires left her former Master of the City truly dead, and their supporters battle-weary and spread across Europe. Now as the Dark Queen, Jane must find a way to consolidate the power she never wanted in the first place. Moreover, the magic she has learned to wield is killing her, slowed only when she is in Beast form. When the forces against Jane and her allies force another showdown in her place of refuge, it may be Jane’s last stand, but she will not go down without ensuring that her family and friends are safe. While some story arcs are settled neatly, the breadth of supernatural elements highlight the intensity and dedication Hunter brings to Jane’s world. Beyond Jane, the stories of her found family members continue to expand.
VERDICT Hunter delivers another solid volume in Jane’s story (after Dark Queen), as her worldbuilding, character development, and action sequences continue to capture readers’ attention.
