Summary

Jane Yellowrock is back on the prowl against the children of the night. The vampire council has hired skinwalker Yellowrock to hunt and kill one of their own who has broken sacred ancient rules - but Jane quickly realizes that in a community that is thousands of years old, loyalties run deep.

Critic reviews

"Jane gets into a complicated stew involving human and vampire rivalries, the ancient vampire-witch conflict, the New Orleans police, and her need to balance her beast and human natures. What with puzzles, chases (including a climactic one to rescue children), lots of blood, and some explicit sex, count on this to please thriller and dark romance fans alike." ( Booklist)

All fangs and claws.

Once again Jane Yellowrock takes on some very,very bad vampires who threaten....... Any more would be a spoiler, so let's just say blood,big cat and Jane are in the mix. I listen to this book pretty much in one session, I would say try this book.

The one where Jane doesn't do much

After an enjoyable first book this one not so much.

Jane, our main character and vampire asskicker returns, doesn't do a hell of a lot except blunder into situations, almost die, get saved by someone/something else and outside of self defense doesn't kill anyone.
Ultimately the big bad is an almost mute nobody we never meet, the day is saved thanks to a child not Jane and big, named, important characters are introduced but do/say nothing.

Disappointed is the best way to describe this one. hopefully book three will be an improvement.

GO JANE!!! GO FAITH!! AND GO KHRISTINE!!

This is one of my favorite authors, series and narrators. I have listened to this series several times and I enjoy it more each time I listen to it. Khristine Hvam does a fantastic job with the narration. I do love the Cherokee that is brought into the story. Hearing the language of The People, just makes the story pop off the pages for me. I do listen while I am reading along, and Khristine pauses where Faith pauses (commas etc.) I think that a lot of times, we miss things when we don't see print. HOWEVER I love my audio books and this series. Jane Yellowrock is a good person as well as a great vamp killer!! And I do love Angie-baby! She will break your heart. I just want to squeeze her but Big Cat would take my head off. These are great stories, lots of background and history (at least for me), and a very interesting take on where vamps started. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

good story

What did you love best about Blood Cross?

the shipping of the character into beast and the dialogue that insues.

Would you recommend Blood Cross to your friends? Why or why not?

I think that they're very nice elements in this book for worth reading.I would definitely recommend this time friends that enjoy vampire mythology

Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

her southern accents really things quite interesting. Jane Yellowrock it's definitely great voice

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

NoI one of those nooks.

Loved It

Any additional comments?

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading

This series is rocking my socks off!

Listened for Fun (Audible)
Tracking Books Read Review (Short)
Overall Rating: 4.50
Story Rating: 4.75
Character Rating: 4.25

Audio Rating: 4.50 (Not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Blood Cross sealed the deal: I am totally invested in Jane/Beast (not so much their love life though)!

Overall Thoughts: Oddly enough on paper, I really shouldn't like this series as much as I do. There is a love triangle. There is a small bit of angst (dual personalities lend to that). Jane at times has a very "young" type of attitude. However, I am really digging the mystery and world building involved with the Jane Yellowrock series. In this particular story, I enjoyed getting to know her best friend and kiddos. Also the rogue storyline was freaking amazing and the end gutted me! I won't say it caused tears but it did cause me to gasp. Faith knows how to pack a punch and that is why I overlook the elements that drive me crazy.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Khristine Hvam / Length: 14 hrs and 48 mins


Khristine does an amazing job with Jane/Beast. She is one of my favorite narrators but this seems to be her sweet spot. She nails the emotion, pacing, and "bite your nails" moments with such accuracy that you just get swept up into the story. Great job!

Final Thoughts: I have already read book 3 and got my hands on book 4 & 5 (in audio of course)!

SEE JANE GO

Okay so let me create an image. Sit on a front porch. Jane, on her motorcycle drives by. Then she drives by again. You watch her drive back and forth and each time she's learned a little or done something. Add in what you learned from the last book but make it a slightly paler version of the characters and VOILA! Book 2.

I do enjoy these books. But I also enjoy character growth. I have a feeling we won't see much of that with Jane. But you know, the Ms Marple books are awesome despite a constantly same plot line with only different characters and twists. At least we established a love triangle! Worth a credit if you're liking the series... I still like the Mercy Thompson books better.

Blood Cross: Jane Yellowrock, Book 2

This is another great tale with Jane Yellowrock. The author creates a strong, female character, who also is vulnerable in some ways. There is enough intrique and action to keep you interested. The story is developed well. I enjoy the toughness and sometimes softness of the main character. I look forward to future stories with Jane Yellowrock.

Better than most!

Any additional comments?

Ordered this book because of a review somewhere else, had minimal expectations. Oh dear, it was addicting. I will admit to going to the car and sitting in it so I could find out what happened next when I didn't have a need to go anywhere. And it was over 100° out there, but I still sat in the car to listen. I really wanted to know what happened next. When I finished this one, (book 2), the first thing I did when I got to my destination was order book 3. Good book!

You Get To Know More About Vamps

After putting off reading Jane Yellowrock first book, I immediately started reading the 2nd book.. and soon will start with the 3rd one too.. You meet Molly (Jane's best friend) and her kids, and you will love them....

The hunt goes on for the vamp maker and it gets really interesting. You learn more about vamps and very interesting and OMG moments you get while reading this book.

Great story!

Like paranormals, lots of violence, and a splash of romance? Then this second book in the Jane Yellowrock saga will be right up your alley. I am enjoying this Series immensely.

Good book, a little weak in the climax.

The book in general was very good, but the climax and ending were weak. The final battle was kind of abrupt, and the epilogue was super generalized.
