The vampires of Asheville, North Carolina, want to establish their own clan, but since they owe loyalty to the Master Vampire of New Orleans they must work out the terms with him. To come up with an equitable solution, he sends an envoy with the best bodyguard blood money can buy: Jane Yellowrock.

But when a group of local campers are attacked by something fanged, Jane goes from escort to investigator. Unless she wants to face a very angry master vampire, she will have to work overtime to find the killer. It's a good thing she's worth every penny.

Jane's duties take her home to Asheville, NC in RAVEN CURSED. She is providing security for the vampires during a meeting between Vamps. As soon as she gets there, there are problems with campers being found dead which leads her to one of Molly's sister witches.  

Jane has been bad ass from day one. I have always loved how independent she is. Beast always has the best comments and reasoning's to help her along. I still have a ton of questions, I hope the next book finally puts some of those to rest. I was kinda shocked that Jane actually finally revealed what she is to someone. I really liked the "kits" (Molly's Kids) involvement in the book as well as getting to know Molly's Husband. Rick was back in the picture but by the ending I cant tell if he will be staying. Bruiser still wants a chance but I cant picture Jane being with someone that wont put her first. I cant imagine what Jane will decide to do next with her time but I cant picture her taking off and the vampires not being involved somehow. RAVEN CURSED was a great continuation of the Skinwalker series.

I gave it 4/5 stars
