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.

Faith Hunter continues her Jane Yellowrock series with the 10th book, Shadow Rites, in which Jane and her entire crew get caught up in some extreme magical attacks enacted by two angry witches out for revenge. The witches and vampires have hated each other for centuries and have enacted wars to rid the earth of each other’s species. In previous books, the ruling councils of witches and vampires in the U.S. have grown closer to a détente, and in this novel they are scheduled for a formal meeting to adopt new rules for dealing fairly with one another. There are some witches, with powerful magical abilities, who refuse to accept the easing of tensions and proceed to magically attack Jane and her crew throughout this book.

It’s always a good day when I get to spend time in this excellent urban fantasy world that Faith Hunter has created. Jane has grown and allowed herself to become attached to her unusual slew of friends, which in this book now include a vampire Primo, a werewolf and a Grindylow. My only negative comment about this latest title in the series has to do with something I’ve noticed over the past couple of books. The descriptions of the magical workings and other paranormal situations are very complicated and, at times, difficult to follow. I found myself skimming some of it because it was doing my head in! The denouement also feels a little rushed, and I would have liked to have seen a final image of how Jane’s home is settling in with the new characters and a preview of the status of the upcoming visit from the European Council of Vampires, which has been alluded to in the past several books. Other than that, as always, I enjoyed spending time in Ms. Hunter’s unique world.

When I read "Dark Heir", the previous book in the Jane Yellowrock series, my only disappointment was that some of the elements that made the earlier books enjoyable were being over-shadowed by Vamp politics and that Jane, in her new Enforcer role, was becoming harder to like.

I started "Shadow Rites" in the hope that I'd get more Jane and more Beast (the Puma soul that she accidentally used black magic to steal when she was a child). I got all that and more.

As usual, Faith Hunter delivers a labyrinthine plot, vivid action scenes, new sets of magical practices and a must-read-the-next-chapter-before-I-sleep momentum. From the opening page, Jane is under attack and the pressure keeps on build as she wades through battle, betrayal and blood.

In addition, Beast finally gets the air-time she deserves, playing a significant role in the plot and also working directly with Jane, even when Beast is Alpha. Angie-babie, Jane's young niece, shows how scarily powerful her witchcraft already is and chooses to take a blood vow that is bound to have consequences later in the series.

Although the plot is about a conflict between witches and vampires, this time the focus is on the emerging "Jane Yellowrock Clan" and extended family that includes the Younger brothers, a family of witches, a werewolf. an indentured vampire and perhaps even an Honorio.

"Shadow Rites" was an entertaining read all the way through.Now I'm looking forward to book 11 of which only the title "Cold Reign" has been announced. I'm hoping it will see the arrival of the European Vamps.

Way too many editing problems made me drop rating a point. Jane and her crew take on the security for the Mithran/Witch conclave and it's a nightmare. Tension ratches up throughout the whole story, with Jane and the people she cares about getting targeted attacks by unknown witches. Everyone gets involved and lots of hints about the upcoming European Vamp visitation.

Shadow Rites
4 Stars

In her role as enforcer to the Master of the City, Jane is preoccupied with preparations for the witch/vampire conclave. These are interrupted when she finds herself the target of a malicious magical attack, and the subsequent investigation reveals a long buried secret in the form of a missing master vampire found chained and starved in an underwater pit. As Jane attempts to expose those responsible, she soon realizes the extent of the threat to the city and its human and supernatural residents, which is far greater than any she has previously encountered.

Faith Hunter's world building is detailed, intricate and not a little convoluted. Moreover, the fact that the events in this installment link back to the first book in the series means that it is crucial to read in order so as not to miss out on any of the necessary backstory or explanations of the tangled political, personal and magical machinations.

The actions starts on the first page and doesn't let up until the last as Jane must contend not only with the personal effects of the magical attack, which seem to prevent her from shifting into Beast and healing, but also with the emotional knowledge that it is threatening those closest to her.

Yes, Jane has finally accepted that she is no longer alone and her adopted family is growing exponentially. In addition to Eli and Alex, the Everheart-Truebloods, the kitten, werewolf and grindylaw menagerie, and the altogether swoonworthy Bruiser (my personal favorite), Jane has also acquired a new vampire Primo whose mystifying past is one of the most intriguing aspects of the story.

The mystery serves as is linch-pin in the overall plotline as it connects threads from previous books and opens up new and intriguing avenues for exploration. The identity of the villains came as somewhat of a surprise even though Hunter provides the necessary clues along the way. The climax and resolution are intense and exciting, and there are moments when Jane's survival hangs in the balance.

In sum, an excellent addition to a fantastic UF series and I'm looking forward not only to the next book, but to the spin-off series as well. My only concern is that Ricky Bo's presence may screw it up.
