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.

    Any additional comments?

    Great series with well-developed characters. Enjoying the evolution of Jane and Beast's relationship, especially as more of their past is revealed and the background of Native American mythology adds depth. I've listened to Khristine Hvam narrate other books (Cast series by Michelle Sagara) and she always does a great job giving different characters distinct voices. One minor criticism is that her grasp of European accents isn't great but overall, a very good performance.

    I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.

    "Good Story; One of my Favorite Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Death's Rival the most enjoyable?

    Hvam does an excellent job with the voices and the performance. But of course you have to have a good story to begin with. Faith Hunter does a wonderful job of shaking up the storyline to add some new life to the series.


    What other book might you compare Death's Rival to and why?

    I can't think of another series that is quite like this one. Others that also have a complex universe and characters might be "The Hollows" and "Kate Daniels" series. I rarely read individual books.


    Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to one other performance, (don't ask which one), and I enjoy her performance with Jane Yellowrock much better.


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

    Have Stakes Will Travel


    Any additional comments?

    I don't understand Rick's attitude at the end. I also don't understand fully his attitude about having to stay away from her. Yes, for now, he has to stay celibate. But by choosing to stay away from Jane he is not only going to be celibate but also have no loving relationship either. Rick's attitudes and choices are overall somewhat confusing. That must be and intentional flaw that will later be explored.

    these just get better and better. Love Jane and Beast. Fast action, but not at the sacrifice of good characters or a great plot. Really liked this.

    Khristine Hvam does a wonderful job on the narration.

    "Faith Hunter Gives Us Another Great Read!"

    The action continues with Jane Yellowrock and Beast! Although the character pool has shifted a little, the story continues to draw the reader in. This is a great series, WONDERFULLY narrated by Khristine Hvam. Highly recommended!

    What made the experience of listening to Death's Rival the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoy the story and characters...


    What other book might you compare Death's Rival to and why?

    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.


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    I love her, she is awesome in the different voices. Thanks


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

    Oh definatly, it is great.


    Any additional comments?

    Cant wait for the next one.
