In Off the Grid, Jane goes on what looks like a simple mission for the Knoxville blood-master - finding a missing Mithran. Her search leads Jane to a young woman named Nell, a woman with a scarred past and a strange power, a woman who may hold the key to saving the missing vampire, if Jane can convince her to assist.

Off the Grid
was originally published in Black Water, a collection of Jane Yellowrock and it takes place between Blood Trade and Black Arts.

Jane is set to the Knoxville, TN area by NOLA Master suck head, Leo, to help solve the case of a missing vampire. Jane finds herself in the middle of a sicko religious cult that treats the women (and girls) has their “heavenly play things”.

While Jane is figuring out what the missing vampire has to do with the cult she runs into a young woman in the woods named Nell.

It doesn’t matter if the team of Faith Hunter and Khristine Hvam get together for a 16+ hour audio or for one that’s just 2 hours long like Off the Grid, they are going to grab you with Jane and entertain the hell out of you.

Off the Grid was a fun and action pack listen in the Jane Yellowrock universal and a nice way to introduce Nell Ingram the leading heroine in Hunter’s “Jane spin-off” series, Soulwood. The first book is titled, Blood of the Earth and it will be hitting the shelves in October 2015. And a little birdie told me that Khristine Hvam will be the narrator. So I’m super excited!

About Khristine Hvam

Khristine studied acting for the theater and film and soon discovered a love of voice over. You can hear her in various TV and Radio commercials, video games, animated series, and most notably in over 100 audio book titles. Khristine has been honored with several Audie nominations and in the summer of 2012 earned her first Audie Award in the fantasy category for her performance of Lani Taylor’s “Daughter of Smoke and Bone.” This year she is thrilled to announce three more Audie nominations!

“I sort of tripped and fell into the world of voice over and audio books and it’s been the best fall yet. I’ve discovered a real passion for this medium of acting, and consider myself very fortunate to be able to do it.” -K.Hvam

My name is Jennifer (not Jen!) and I live in the South. I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two cats. I'm finishing my BA in English this Spring (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not touch anything labeled "classic" but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my courses. While I hated to read growing up I am now avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction with my favorite (at least to date) genres include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly paranormal from authors I read in the adult genre but I'm explaining after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in my college courses).

    I enjoyed the “ride” through this story – especially in audio because it gave the story more life to hear it. Funny how reading a story then listening to it have two differing impacts! Thanks for the great review, I recommend Off the Grid too 🙂
