Great evolution of characters and complex world building are one of Ms. Hunter's hallmarks. Nonstop action that pulls you in to the story is always a plus.
Best author out there!!
Intense near end to a fabulous storyline. I laughed. I cried. It was so worth it!
Faith Hunter is one of the greatest authors/storytellers. Love all her books, they're so addictive.
I'm a Jane Yellowrock (and Faith Hunter) fan for years now. Dark Queen made me cry the most.....
The world of Jane Yellowrock is like no other that I've ever read about. And Jane can REALLY kick ass!
This book added dimension and intensity to the life of Jane Yellowrock and everyone involved in it. Her becoming the Dark Queen whether she wanted it or not is fascinating, and we remain breathlessly awaiting the next 'chapter' of her life. A superb book standing on its own, and an even greater book as part of the Skinwalker series.
Faith writes a deep complex story that holds attention and is unlike many in her genre.
