Review

Praise for Blood of the Earth
 
“The best first installment of an urban fantasy series I’ve read in about a decade. Highly recommended.”—Rabid Reads
 
“Faith Hunter's powerful voice and exceptional skills come through crystal clear in her latest urban fantasy series that expands upon her very popular Jane Yellowrock world.”—Heroes and Heartbreakers
 
“Plenty of action, magic, and fascinating characters, both familiar and new, create another terrific urban fantasy from an established author.”—
Library Journal
 
“The dynamic world building, intense characterization, and an action packed storyline that hints at increasing darkness nurture and grow Hunter’s newest heroine.”
Smexy Books
 
More Praise for Faith Hunter’s Soulwood Novels

“Urban Fantasy fans will love Nell Ingram and her unique way of handling life and those around her.”—Smexy Books

From the Author

BLOOD OF THE EARTH is set in the Jane Yellowrock world and while the world, some characters, and the history is all the same, Nell is a new character first introduced in Off The Grid, (a short story you can find in the compilation BLOOD IN HER VEINS). Nell is a survivor with an earth magic not seen anywhere else in the series. Nell is damaged yet strong, patient yet deadly. And when she is asked to consult with PsyLED on a difficult case, her world and life are shaken to the core. I hope you love her!

Faith Hunter, urban fantasy writer, was born in Louisiana and raised all over the south. Hunter fell in love with reading in fifth grade, and best loved SciFi, fantasy, and gothic mystery. She decided to become a writer in high school, when a teacher told her she had talent. Now, she writes full-time, tries to keep house, and is a workaholic with a passion for RV travel, Japanese maples, orchids, white-water kayaking, and writing. She and her husband love to RV to whitewater rivers all over the Southeast.

The dark urban fantasy Skinwalker series, featuring Jane Yellowrock, is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling series with multiple books and compilations. Jane Yellowrock is a Cherokee skinwalker who tracks, hunts, and kills rogue-vampires for a living -- that is, until she takes a gig working for Leo Pellissier, the Master of the City of New Orleans. The series is set in an alternate reality, modern-day world, one inhabited by humans, vamps, and other things that go bump in the night.

Her Rogue Mage novels, a dark, urban fantasy series, feature Thorn St. Croix, a stone mage in a post-apocalyptic, alternate reality, urban fantasy world. These novels are the basis for the Rogue Mage World Book and Role Playing Game, which contains lots of fiction for the readers!

The Soulwood series features Nell Nicholson Ingram, and is a spinoff from the Skinwalker series. Nell is an escapee from a cult, a solitary woman with deadly magic of her own. In book one, Blood of The Earth, she is hired to help PsyLED (a division of Homeland Security) find a missing child.

Faith's Junkyard Cats series is a "near future" SciFi series of novellas first released as Audible Originals and later as ebooks, and possibly some day as a print onmibus.

Under her pen name Gwen Hunter, she writes action adventure, mysteries, and thrillers.

As Faith and Gwen, she has 40+ books in print in 30+ countries.
