NNO Book Club: Skinwalker


NNO Book Club: Skinwalker

For February, we have a member pick that’s been on our “To Read” list for far too long. Let’s fix that shall we?

If you look back over the books we’ve read in the past – we sure do love female authors, kickass main characters, and just about anything drawing from a non-Euro/WASP centric world view. Let’s expand our mental horizons – and read about an awesome vampire hunter.

For this month - Skinwalker by Faith Hunter.

***Book summary from Goodreads***
Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind—a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she’s been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katies’s Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who’s killing other vamps.

Amidst a bordello full of real “ladies of the night,” and a hot Cajun biker with a panther tattoo who stirs her carnal desire, Jane must stay focused and complete her mission—or else the next skin she’ll need to save just may be her own...

****This month's restaurant selection***
I’ve been waiting for the weather to turn cooler so we could give Three Birds Tavern a second visit. The food and vibe was great on our first visit, but a tragic cooler failure resulted in the brunch menu being unavailable. I’m keeping my fingers crossed all goes well this time.

***Not sure about book club or never been to one before? ***
Read the book (or some of the book). Come to the Meetup. Eat yummy food and chat with folks about what you thought about the book. REPEAT!

***Didn’t finish/hated this book?***
Come to the Meetup anyway! If you didn't finish - just be aware, there will be spoilers. If you hated it, come and rant! We have some of the best conversations about what we didn’t like about books!
