Dark Heir opens with Jane still trying to tighten up Leo Pelissier’s defenses in advance of the European Vampires visits. As Master Vampire of New Orleans and that region, Leo is one of the most powerful vampires in the western world. When Jane gets a call that Leo’s lair has been attacked she discovers that he’s been keeping a “monster” in the basement, and that monster has now been released upon the citizens of New Orleans. It’s Jane’s job to bring him in… dead or alive.
Dark Heir features the most powerful and dangerous thing Jane has come up against so far. As Jane investigates we see a physical evolution from monster to vampire that somewhat parallels Jane’s relationship to her own beast. A relationship that she needs to embrace if she is going to have any chance to save humanity… or at least the New Orleans general public.
The thing I loved the most about Dark Heir is that despite Jane’s own evolution into some sort of human-beast, her “family” stays loyal. I loved Alex and Eli Younger in the previous novels and when they stick by her in Dark Heir they now have my loyalty as well. The other piece to Jane’s new family is her boyfriend George, aka “Bruiser”. He is now free to pursue Jane, and I think she’s finally ready to be caught. Dark Heir was my favorite novel in the Jane Yellowrock series to date because Jane got what she always wanted. The creation of a family.
