  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

This ongoing fantasy written by Faith Hunter features the strong and sexy Jane Yellowrock, the last of her kind, a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. Back from hiatus, she’s hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps in which she gets caught up in the vampiric politics which cascades her into a series of unwanted adventures. This is a series of Urban Fantasy novels that are half romance, half Transformation Comic. The series was written by Faith Hunter, it is on going and recently had a new book published.

So far there are four published books in the series:

  • Skinwalker
  • Blood Cross
  • Mercy Blade
  • Raven Cursed

Provides the following tropes:

  • Domino Revelation: Well we have vampires, shifters, and witches...so all other things are probably real too!
  • Last of Her Kind
  • Magical Native American: Jane Yellowrock herself.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: As opposed to most vampire stories, these guys go all beast-like and kill with out indiscretion until they are tamed after a few years..sometimes a few decades or centuries to make them less beast and more human.
  • Skin Walker: Jane is a good kind, not based on the skin-thievery of legend.
  • Shapeshifting: The whole superpower Jane has.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: She can't assume larger forms with out stealing mass and can't take smaller forms with out storing it.
  • Shapeshifter Showdown: She ends up fighting a another skinwalker who has taken on the traits of a vampire in addition to animal traits.
  • The Big Easy: The setting for the first two books.
  • Totally Not a Werecat
  • Vampire Hunter: Her job is often to hunt down and kill Vampires.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Jane can change at will with only a little concentration.
  • Wild Wilderness: A slight aversion of this troupe, Jane has some recollection of her past and the fact that she was undiscovered in cat form for a long while.
  • Unstable Genetic Code: She is a skinwalker who must study the DNA of other creatures via meditation in order to copy their forms.
  • Urban Fantasy: True to form, its a modern day adventure of the paranormal.
