Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Jane Yellowrock is so awesome!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death's Rival to be better than the print version?

    For me the audio edition is much better than the print version for two reasons...my eyes aren't what they used to be, making it work to read for any length of time. The audio version gives the best emphasis to the plot where it belongs and gives the lead character (Jane) a more dimensional persona.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Beast.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Where Beast took Jane's clothes to where she'd find them when she shifted back then tried unsuccessfully to rescue the cell phone with Bruiser shouting from it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Shock and Awe have Jane Yellowrock's name all over them.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, read it...now!

    Story
    "Another great book with Beast and Jane"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death's Rival to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I love all the accents. They give so much personality to the characters.

    There is nothing to compare.


    Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Beast!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next Jane Yellowrock.

    "Another great performance"

    As much as the story is entertaining, khristine hvam really shines and puts on another great performance. She is able to change voices,accents and pitches perfectly. The one thing that I really appreciate is that she has kept the voices consistent from book to book. This allows for less distraction and more enjoyment

    Story
    "The Younger Younger & The Older Younger"
    Any additional comments?

    Death's Rival introduces 2 of my favorite characters, Alex and Eli Younger. They make a great team with Jane and add a lot of warmth and humor to Book 5 and later. I also enjoyed how Beast now has her own voice. I love it when the story is told through Beast's eyes. Stupid humans!

    Bruiser has a 'life changing' experience. The attraction and sexual tension between Jane and Bruiser continues at the same time that her dysfunctional relationship with Rick limps along. I'm rooting for Bruiser.

    Book 5 has plenty of action and an exciting ending. Jane gets to kick butt and get some revenge for her people.

    Khristine Hvam is a wonderful voice actor. Each character has a distinctive voice and both female and male voices are appealing, which is fairly unusual. Her timing and pacing of the story are spot on and she has just enough southern twang combined with snarky badass to perfectly portray Jane. Jane is both tough and soft hearted and Hvam nails both sides of her personality.
