If you haven't started reading Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series yet, then it is time to start!! However, you really should start with Skinwalker. You will get so much more out of Black Arts that way.
Jane Yellowrock is a Cherokee skinwalker, able to take the form of any animal. She thinks she is around 170 years old, but she looks like she is in her mid twenties. She accidently "stole" the soul of a mountain lion trying to save her life during an attack when she was very young. Since then she has had two souls living inside her, one "Beast" the mountain lion. The more practical Beast has become markedly more intelligent since the visit of Hayyel, an angel with his own plans.
It has been really interesting watching Jane, as such a loner in the beginning of the series, begin to open up and rely on people. The relationship between Jane and the Younger brothers is growing into a real "family" feeling, which both comforts and frightens Jane! Slowly it is becoming more "comfort" and less "fear" as Jane opens herself up.
I absolutely LOVE reading Beast's thoughts and point of view! Beast has no problem telling Jane exactly how to live her life. The two make for very interesting views on the world. She repeatedly reminds Jane that mountain lions don't mate for life, making her interest in Ricky, Leo and Bruiser known! But even though Beast is interested in her "mates", she is much more fixed on "kits". Beast loves to be around children and takes it upon herself to protect them. Any child gets her attention, but Jane's best friend Molly has two children that Beast has emotionally adopted, Angie-Baby and EJ (Evan Junior).
So when Big Evan shows up looking for Molly, who has disappeared, it isn't just any old job.
This has got to be the best Jane Yellowrock book yet! Several questions were answered, the past is reconciled, a little witch nearly becomes too big for her britches, love life options are removed and others revealed. And Beast & Jane come to a real understanding.
As a professional reviewer stated, "Black Arts is the definition of a page turner!"
Why??? Why is this guy here? What do we have to do to get rid of The Ricky-dick? Why does Jane even bother with this guy? Why does she swoon anytime he shows up? I totally don’t get it at all. He is horrible to her 90% of the time and yet she turns into a slobbering emotional needy mess anytime he shows up.
Thankfully something went down and I’m seriously hoping that it means the end of the Rickster. I get why Beast wants him, hell she wants every strong male out there but she doesn’t care about the emotional crap that comes with them. Jane is looking for someone who is going to really love her. I’m hoping she gives Bruiser a shot because that man is bending over backwards for her and has taken some hard hits literally because of it.
Eli said, “Why did you beat your primo to a pulp? Just for starters.”
Leo held the Ranger with his eyes. “My primo has been acting contrary to my needs. He has placed another’s needs before my own.”
“And?” I asked, feeling that there had to be more to it.
“Onorios cannot be bound,” Leo said simply.
I was always leaning to the Bruiser side of things which isn’t saying much since I hated Rick at book go but now I’m totally on board the Bruiser train and I’m really hoping that Jane gives him a serious shot because I think that if she finally let into the attraction between them it would leave whatever she was feeling for Rick in the dust.
Other than the drama lama of the love triangle I loved the plot line. Molly is missing and Evan brings the kids since he thought she was with Jane. It was sad to see how the relationship between Molly and Evan had changed after the death of Evangelina. I liked the slow discovery of what Molly was dealing with and why she is so changed. Angie is the cutest little shit ever and I loved seeing how she is dealing with having magic so young. Molly and Evan are going to have their hands full for awhile with that little girl she is equal parts cuteness and mischief.
There are a few things that happened in this that had 0 explanations after they happen like Bruiser getting pulled into the gray place to come to Jane’s aid. It is never figured out how he got there, if it was because of Jane or something else. I really wanted more explanations on this since it seemed like a pretty big thing. But a friend says that is what the next book deals with so I’ll let it go for now.
So to recap. Cute Witchy kids, decent interesting plot, a possible conclusion to the drama lama love triangle (4 books too late IMHO) and some big movement on the Jane personal growth front. Lets keep the forward momentum going Jane.

An another absolute corker of a book, Faith Hunter does it once again!
Brilliant, riveting, exciting and down right mesmerising!
I love this series, so much. Each book has showed us another layer to both Jane and Beast. There is everything you could want in here, mystery, fear, fun, fighting (you are so gonna love one particular fight scene!!) and heartbreak.
All I can say is if Faith Hunter wants to write it, I am happy to read it. She weaves a tale that will keep you up at night and will stay with you long after you finish the book. Go on, treat yourself!
Ricky-bo betrays Jane publically, and for Jane its the last time, she knows he cannot be trusted.
Something is stalking Jane and she needs to find out who what and why pretty quick
