Black Arts (Jane Yellowrock)
The New York Times bestseller Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who always takes care of her own—no matter the cost.... When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace. Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy—one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

4.5 stars. I enjoyed the ride most while the mysteries still held and Jane was being more open-minded. Once the pieces started falling into place, I was disappointed by her habit of jumping to the same old conclusions about some of her more powerful acquaintances, even when she's given proof that the situation she's grown accustomed to is changing.

This story builds on previous books in the series, so you do need to read in order.
Black Arts is a fast-paced action-packed adventure. It starts with a bang and doesn’t stop. It ties up unfinished business and gives us answers on numerous things we have been waiting for.
Jane’s life is finally making sense. Those around her finally know her heritage and abilities. It’s liberating for Jane. The only downside is she is still estranged from her best friend Molly and her family, but then again that rift is about to be slowly mended.
Jane and Beast are more in-since with each other, but they still have a ways to go, yet some things get resolved between them. It was fabulous to have Molly and her family back in the picture. The Younger brothers are great for Jane and add to the story. Leo, well he’s Leo. George, things are changing for him too. Jane’s love life or whatever it is gets some resolution. I have to say, I cried for Jane. Rick is an ass and I never liked him, but what happens is devastating. Though I have to say I’m hoping he is gone for good. As I’ve said from the get go Jane needs someone who will put her first, stand by her, and love her for who she is.
Black Arts is an emotional read, a roller coaster ride, and a wonderful story blending action, romance, magic, and history.
