Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire—but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs....

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.

Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….

Jane is BACK and someone's after her. Nothing new, right? Well, they got to Reach so it might be more serious than she thought. Jane will do just about anything to keep those she considers her friends and family safe. Even if that means putting herself in more danger. BROKEN SOUL brings us more from all the characters we love, the action that keeps us on the edge of our seat and the world that we just can't get enough of.

On the romance side of things. Jane still has a bit of contact with Rick. Thankfully she is FINALLY moving past him, I was really proud of her. Jane and Bruiser. WOW. That's all 'm going to say about that. You will want to experience it for yourself. I will say that it's really nice to see Jane share herself with others. Not only in a romantic relationship, but in general. She has come a long way from the person she was in book one and it has been great witnessing it.

We got some interesting surprises in book 8. An ally turned out to be something way more than anyone could have thought. Jane and Beast learn a lot of new tricks and we find out that Beast is much stronger (in an "I might be able to take control of Jane whenever I want" stronger) than we thought. I can't quite see where things will be going with that whole storyline, but I am excited to read more.

I'm really looking forward to book 9. There's a lot of lead up to the European Counsel visit, but we don't get there in BROKEN SOUL. All hell is about to break loose and I just know the ride is going to be fantastic.

I gave it 4/5 stars
