Waiting on Wednesday #117: Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.


This week the title I am waiting on is another urban fantasy title: Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter. This is book #10 in the Jane Yellowrock series. It's due out April 5, 2016 from Roc.

Synopsis from Goodreads.com:
Slaying vampires is child’s play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans’ supernatural players is another story...

Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her doorstep. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.

A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit...undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it’s up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war.


Why am I waiting on this book? Well, it's book #10 in another series that I've grown to like. I still haven't read all of the novels from the beginning. I picked up the series with book #9, Dark Heir. Dark Heir was action packed, never a dull moment.

Faith Hunter also has a collection of short stories coming out in February 2016 called Blood in Her Veins where all the stories take place in the world of Jane Yellowrock. There are 19 stories in the collection.
