Cold Reign (Jane Yellowrock #11) by Faith Hunter

Welcome to the Cold Reign Blog Tour!  Great to see you here!

We're here to celebrate the release of another AWESOME installment in the story of Jane Yellowrock!

Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker…and the woman rogue vampires fear most.
Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.
And there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.
Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…
I have a character profile to share with you today...
Gregoire’s secondo heir, Adrianna quickly became Jane’s enemy. Jane staked her, but Leo brought her back - several times. Adrianna often was sometimes acting master of Clan Arceneau, one of the most powerful clans in the U.S. 
She started out with two blood-servants, Sina and Brigit. She also had scions, Barb, Lanah, Hope and Lorraine and Cieran. She had turned the last two, they were her children. The vamps are now all true dead. 

Adrianna had been part of the Damours’ black magic rituals. She had picked up a few magical things, like amulets that made humans willing conspirators in crimes.

She has red hair, curly and wild, that fans out around her, blue eyes that are not quite sane.

She has a golden torque etched with Celtic symbols that rest on her collarbones and two gold cuffs shaped like snakes that climb her arm. Loves sexy expensive clothes.

Leo declares Adrianna outlaw but won’t let Jane behead her. She was a lover to the Son of Darkness, Joses Santana who later stabs her in the temple with a silver spike—which she also survives. 

Will Jane ever be able to behead her?

The action just doesn't STOP!

Jane and her ever-increasing circle of family must circumvent the centuries-in-the-planning coup being attempted by the EVs in order to save her loved ones and keep their way of life. During the process Jane's inherent magics and her acquired ones cause her many issues... and may just be what save the day.

Things to love about this installment of Jane's story:
- the puns: Starting with the title...
- the action: It's fast, almost constant, and bloody.
- the verbiage: Faith's writing is descriptive, imaginative, and engaging... and STILL manages to use "big words"! ;)
- the characters: They are well-developed, charismatic, and intriguing. Sometimes Faith even makes you route for the bad guys... but not often.

Things to hate about this book:
- ummmmmm... that I finished it? lol

This series is definitely not for underage or immature audiences, but for those of us who enjoy strong female protagonists who become more complex as the series progresses and use sarcasm like a dollop of whipped cream (on top of her tea), Jane RAWKS!
