Publisher's Summary

Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire - but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs....

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price - and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.

Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see.…

I am speechless.

I went into this book worried that Jane would be moping about the events of the last book. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. Yes there were a few thoughts but they were storng "leave it in the past" thoughts.
The action packed story of Jane/Beast really heated up in this book in more ways than one.
God I love a man that understands a woman so well he leaves her stuttering and speechless.
We learn a lot more about Jane and her abilities. We also get to see our questions about a few of the others answered.
This book is my new favorite.
Don't miss out; you won't be disappointed.

U always surprise me

Would you listen to Broken Soul again? Why?

I will listen to it multiple times. First relisten in case I missed something. Then because I love Faith's books.

What did you like best about this story?

That Bruiser finally get Jane's attention n that she excepts it.

What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

Khristine Hvam is Jane, when I hear her voice I see Jane. She makes very few pronounciations errors. I love her voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I do to every book in this series. Faith does that to you. You can't help but feel what Jane feels.

Any additional comments?

The hardest thing is waiting for the next book. So you will revisit the other books. But you continue to enjoy the story. Jane, Beast, Bruiser, Ely, Alex, Leo, Rick, someone has ur heart. Books can be addicting and Jane Yellowrock is too. Thank you Faith.

What a great team!

What made the experience of listening to Broken Soul the most enjoyable?

Finally the next installment! I must have a true addiction to this series because I have been jonesing for a JY fix. I am now riding the bliss of the mental rehash of this newest adventure.

What other book might you compare Broken Soul to and why?

The closest, but not exactly the same, would be the Patricia Briggs', Mercy Thompson books. Although I don't care for the Alpha and Omega spin off books. I also like Connie Suttle's Blood Wager books as a comparison.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many good ones to choose from.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! Of course I already said I have an addiction.

Any additional comments?

Urban fantasy readers cannot call themselves fans of this genre without reading/listening to this series. There are a couple production issues on the audio version but they don't detract from the book as a whole.

Writing is Superb - Could not stop Listening

This series only gets better and better. I absolutely love the characters, the way the author describes the characters and the story. Kristine Hyam is an excellent narrator and I must say, actress. She knows how to do dialect and character voices.

I give this book my top rating. It was enjoyable to again, enjoy an audio book from beginning to end.

A Whole Lot of Action!

Since "Action" seems to be Jane Yellowrock's middle name, it shouldn't be surprising that the 8th installment in the series would be loaded with the stuff! The book is also exciting, engrossing and in some instances very surprising!

In this book, Jane continues to work with the Younger brothers as they team up to unravel several mysteries coming at them from different directions at the same time. There is something big, aggressive and invisible chasing Jane, and something in the Master of the City's possession which is drawing attackers to vamp HQ, forcing Jane to resolve before the European vamps come to Leo's territory for an official "visit".

There are poignant, funny and yummy scenes where Faith Hunter develops and expands the depth of her characters. Beast, of course, is her usual no-nonsense self, developing quite a dry sense of humor as she and Jane evolve together. Nice touch in the middle of all that fighting and chasing!

I highly recommend this installment in Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series. Faith is very good about adding background to the current story for newcomers, so don't be afraid to start here then go back to the first book of the series, Skinwalker to get the rest of Jane's story.

Another great Yellowrock adventure

What made the experience of listening to Broken Soul the most enjoyable?

As always I look forward to the revels of skinwalker history and Jane's / Beast's duality.

What other book might you compare Broken Soul to and why?

understandably the structure is very much like Black Arts.

What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voicings of the characters like the inflections she's uses. When reading for me I would have to read the book a couple times before getting those types of things in my head.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

without any real spoilers but the duality of Jane / Beasts soul.

Any additional comments?

Again without any real spoilers I wasn't too keen on the hook-up,s till don't trust that one. ;-)

Faith Hunter does it again!

They just keep getting better!!!! Wow! Jane continues to kick butt, learn more about herself, and Beast, and...... I can't say anymore without giving anything away. Faith draws you in from the beginning, and you feel like you are right there with the characters. I can't get enough of Jane's world!

Very good addition to the series :D

4 stars

This was a very good addition to the series. Jane and George (aka Bruiser) are getting closer now that Rick has gone off with another woman and Jane is done with Rick. George has decided that Jane has had enough time to heal and starts making his interest (and how far he's willing to go to have a true relationship with Jane) very clear. Jane is hesitant but willing to explore a relationship (with some pushing from Beast).

Speaking of Beast, she has helped Jane discover a new ability that comes in very handy. I wasn't sure what to think of it...this could make things almost too easy for Jane but there is a high price to pay for the ability so maybe that'll keep things in check. Jane and Beast are bonding more and learning how to work together more and I like where things are heading.

There's the usual issues with Leo wanting Jane and acting like a petulant (and homicidal) child when he doesn't get his way and things progressing between George and Jane just makes things worse. In addition to Leo, there's issues with preparing for a contingent from the European vampires. New security measures must be implemented and updated since it seems pretty evident that the Europeans are just visiting to try to steal power from Leo. While this an other things are taking place, a trio of vamps make an unsanctioned visit into Leo's territory and start trying to kill Jane as well as causing other issues.

Most of the rest of the story is taken up with dealing with the trio of vamps and the European visit is still coming in the future. Jane is still working for Leo because the European vamps are a danger to her and those she cares about but how long she continues working for Leo afterwards is anyone's guess. Things are looking promising for Jane and George at the end of the story and I'm hoping they can work things out. Jane certainly deserves someone after Rick ended up being such a jerk. I'm looking forward to the next book. I'd recommend this series. :D

Jane and Beast getting better all the time

What did you love best about Broken Soul?

I've loved this series since it first started and Khristine Hyam is it voice of all the characters done perfectly. This is Urban Para-Normal at it's best. You never really know what's coming around the corner until you get there. This one is a real emotional roller-coaster, and I loved every moment. .

What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Soul?

So many, and they would all be spoilers if I went into why they were memorable.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't want to spoil this for anyone but when Jane and Beast have a conversation in the "Gray Space" It really is memorable in many way, and they have more than one.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes a moment with Wrestler, I don't want to spoil that either.

Any additional comments?

I love this series, for many reasons, 1st being it is so different than any other urban para-normal out there, and many of them are great. Also Khristine Hyam is the voice of this series, she does French accents, and language, Cajun, N'Orleans, and just plain speak perfectly She would be great doing just about anything I believe, but she makes this series work on Audible. Looking forward to the next Jane Yellowrock book, eagerly. .

Everything is Better with Bacon!





WOW. Just WOW. Um where to begin. It's going to be hard to talk about BROKEN SOUL without spoiling so I'll try to keep it short.

Let's the narration out-of-the-way. Khristine Hvam is Jane and Beast. NO ONE else could narrate Jane Yellorock any better! Hvam's delivery of Faith Hunter's characters are flawless. She nails it every time and is the reason this series is on my audio only list. Hunter's writing is amazing, there's no doubt but Hvam is like putting chocolate sauces and a cherry on top of the goodness that is Jane Yellowrock.

The series is very detailed and you really must focus on what's going on. I made the mistake of zoning out for a few minutes while I was listening at work and ended up totally lost. Things were moving so fast I had to back up the audio to pick up the details I had missed. The whole novel is non-stop action from beginning to end.

BROKEN SOUL starts out as one kind of book and with all the twists and complex plot lines ends up being something I didn't see coming. WOW Jane and Beast keep evolving into this unstoppable team of two souls in one body. Well, is that really one body since Jane can physically shift into Beast's form? Mmm...

I've read other UF series where the main characters are weres, shifters, skinwalkers, etc and none have been done as well as Hunter's Jane and Beast. The way they communicate is original. They really are two heroines sharing a space. And with the events of the previous book, BLACK ARTS and with what takes place here, neither has an idea where they are heading.

And for those who've been wanting some ON PAGE romance for Jane... you get it. It's not smutty because this is Jane after all but we get details that are satisfying. And I can't wait to see how that part of Jane's (and Beast's!) life changes. I think she's finally ready for a true mate!
