Jane Yellowrock is the best vamp hunter there is because she's got a secret; she's a skinwalker.  With a tiny bit of DNA, she can shift into any creature, big or small.  That means that she can track any vamp through any territory.

But Jane's no ordinary skinwalker.  She's got an even bigger secret.  The Beast lurks in her, speaks to her, gives her advice, and sometimes takes over.

How the Beast got in her is something Jane has never known.  All she knows is that she walked out of the forest years ago, was told at the time that she was 12 years old, and had to learn how to be human.

Now she's in New Orleans, hired to take down a rogue vamp who's killing vamps and humans around the city.  If she can provide proof of the kill within 10 days, she stands to make quite a bit of cash.  But tracking the vamp is harder than she thought and the whole hunt is complicated by a couple very sexy humans and a beyond sexy vamp.  

They're all interested and interesting, but they're a distraction she can't afford.

Final thoughts: This was recommended by Amazon because of my penchant for supernatural urban lit.  Unfortunately, it's not a good fit.  I didn't like the changing voices of Jane and The Beast.  There was far too much time spent on describing everything from buildings, to clothes, to her shifting, to how she took her many, many showers.  Jane also had a habit of giving people nicknames and then shifting between calling the characters by name and then by nickname. It made the large cast even more confusing.  The story itself was a little winding and strange.  It was OK, but I have no need to read the next one.
