Jane is hip deep in preparation for the European Vamps’ visit. To complicate matters, the Witch Conclave is imminent and of major importance to the relations between the vamps and the witches. To finally be sitting down together to iron out the issues between the two groups and hopefully come to an accord weighs heavily on Jane and the Younger boys. Out of nowhere, Jane’s house is magically attacked by two witches and the hunt for the perpetrators leads them to a vamp that was thought to be dead. Who is behind the magical attack and the master vampire chained in a pit and why are they after Jane?
The Jane Yellowrock series keeps getting better and better. I didn’t think it was possible but each subsequent book raises the bar exponentially. This series sould be at the top of every urban fantasy fan’s list. I worry every time I sit down to write a review of a Jane Yellowrock book that I will run out of adjectives to describe how awesome these books are. Jane has slowly transformed over the course of the series and it is a fascinating journey. The Witch Conclave was a fascinating step in the journey to the European Vamps visit. I cannot wait to see what will the future has in store for Jane and her crew. Faith Hunter has an amazing talent and a flawed heroine who I absolutely adore. 5 stars to the wonderful Shadow Rites!
