Death's Rival, JANE YELLOWROCK #5
Author: Faith Hunter
Jane Yellowrock is a shapeshifting skinwalker you don’t want to cross—especially if you’re one of the undead…
For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to …a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane.
But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey. Now, to uncover the identity of the vamp who wants Leo’s territory, and to find the cause of the vamp-plague, Jane will have to go to extremes…and maybe even to war.
Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Guest Reviewer - Kathy M:
Faith Hunter’s latest installment in her Jane Yellowrock series, Death’s Rival is one of the best books that I have read all year.
I’m a big fan of this series, so I was expecting to enjoy the book, but Death’s Rival blew me out of the water.
Jane is still adjusting to working for Leo, the Master of the City of New Orleans. And while the pay is great and the work is never boring, she still questions the wisdom of working for the vampire. When an unknown foe attempts to take over Leo’s territory by releasing a plague causing sickness and impending death in previously thought invulnerable vampires, it is up to Jane to figure out the who, how and why. And try to stay alive.
We learn, as Jane begins to remember, more of her past. And her co-existence with Beast, the soul of a mountain lion that lives inside her evolves.
Death’s Rival totally satisfies, yet leaves one hungry for more.
