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.

Death's Rival was engaging from the start. I found this book difficult to put down. Can't wait for the next book in this series.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I have listened to the entire series so far and have enjoyed it very much. I hope there will be many more books to this great series. I will be purchasing them as soon as they come out. :)
As usual Jane just gets in deeper..........The answers to her past have Big effect on her future. I can't wait for the next book in the series now to see how she handles it all.
I really enjoy the story and characters...
It's hard to say, I can't really think of anything that close. Different authors have different personalities, so they all have something unique.
I love her, she is awesome in the different voices. Thanks
Oh definatly, it is great.
Cant wait for the next one.
has to be number 1
when she found out about her mother, and grandmother revenge
no doubt Jane
i wish her ebooks would come in audilbe format..i would love to hear them.. can not wait til 2013 to hear what happens with beast and leo..and jane of course. along with ricky bow, brusier(george)....and whats the story with eliah(sp?) and lil bro alex.
not with this narrator
better narrator without a fakey southern accent
get someone with a real new orlens
I really like thrillers. My favorite type of movie or book is one that has a unique perspective instead of a different version of the same story repeated by many different writers throughout the years. Many books are fine for a one-time listen, but to find one that's good enough to listen to again and again is a rare find indeed!!
"Death's Rival" is another book in the Jane Yellowrock series, yet I like it the least of all. Faith Hunter is stretching her writing abilities by introducing an incredible storyline and quite frankly I think she should have stopped with "Raven Cursed."
I realize when writing about vamps bad things are bound to happen, but I do not like at all what happened regarding the vamps, Jane and Beast. What happened to Jane upset me greatly and I don't like what's revealed about what happened to Beast at the end of the book.
It was also irritating to me that the love/lust line continues with the two main men in Jane's life. I thought that was settled in "Raven Cursed." I thought Jane would accept everything and get on with her life. Yet that didn't happen.
I suppose Faith Hunter believed she had to take something that happened in "Raven Cursed" and settle it for us. To me, it didn't need to be further explored. It served its purpose and was, as far as I was concerned, over. Therefore, to make such a big deal about it that it becomes the main storyline for a fifth book doesn't make sense to me.
The characters are still good. The reader is still doing a fine job. I just didn't like the storyline.
While I've enjoyed this series, most especially the first two books, and even the next two with some minor displeasure in book three and some major displeasure with book four, I would have preferred the series end with "Raven Cursed."
Try it at your own risk. If any more books have been written in this series, I will not be buying any of them.
I love this series and couldn't wait for this book. But, I am so disappointed with parts of the story line that I don't know if I will get the next book in the series. I don't want to give too much away, but Jane is phenomenally betrayed by multiple characters in this book. She is supposed to be this tough chick who doesn't put up with anything, but she doesn't retaliate at all and essentially just accepts it. She accepts that it is just "in their nature". This completely ruined Jane's character for me. I'm not interested in reading anymore. I kept thinking she would at least plot her revenge at the end of the book, but she doesn't.
The only reason I gave this a 3 and not anything lower is because the writing is still good and it is generally a good story. I just REALLY disliked the that aspect of the book. Unless I see that the next book is about her getting even, I won't be getting it.
Death's Rival, the 5th installment of Faith Hunter's Skinwalkers series, did not fail in keeping me riveted and excited. Unfortunately, this was the first of the series I had gotten in audio format and I find I am not happy with the narration. It was distracting to hear the mispronunciations of woo many of the character's names. Sentences read out of order, or words skipped, also the annoying almost false Southern accent used all drew away from they fun of the story.
I had hoped to purchase all the other books in audio also, but find I can't do so as it is the same narrator for all of them. If you don't read along with the audiobook and just listen to it, and if you don't mind the mispronunciations then you will enjoy this story.
