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's getting closer to the big reveal..."

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narrator is so wonderful and this and other books. But I enjoyed this book because I was wondering when the rst of the vampires and other supernatural people in New Orleans would discover who she is. I do wish they'd treat Jane better, though. It really does almost break my heart to see the way Beast and everyone else treats her.

    Story
    "This series keeps surprising me"
    What made the experience of listening to Death's Rival the most enjoyable?

    It seems Faith Hunter knows how to keep the reader (listener) on the edge. This is the fifth book in the series and I've enjoyed every one so far. Each a bit different, but getting better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In some ways "Beast"......but Jane of course. Her inter action with Leo, sometimes is a hoot. .


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Khristine Hvam is a wonderful narrator, and gets the southern LA and French quarter accents really good. When you have an excellent narrator, it makes a book that much better. I have read books and then listened to on audible. I usually enjoy the audible versions more


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

    yes

    Story
    "Dark Story"

    I felt that this was a dark story. It seemed that everything fell apart for Jane towards the end, and the ending left me with my mouth hanging open, saying "NO!! This can't be!" I was so grateful that a couple of weeks after listening to this book, the next book in the series came out, and I quickly downloaded it. Thank goodness, things worked themselves out in the next story! lol

    Upon listening to the story for the second time, things made more sense, and didn't seem quite so dark. I enjoyed the story greatly the second time, and Khristine just does an awesome job of narration. Her portrayal of Beast is my favorite part of the story. Faith did a great job of weaving an intricate plot.

    "I Truly Liked This Book"

    I wasn't disappointed at all. As a matter of fact, I had stopped listening to the earlier books and when I downloaded this one, I was pleasantly surprised. I say, "Go For It". You'll enjoy the listening.

    "Loved it!"
    If you could sum up Death's Rival in three words, what would they be?

    Riveting! Fun! Exciting!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The cast of characters, lead by Jane Yellowrock, are complex and interesting. The story grabs you from the beginning and you just hang on for the ride.


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She breathes life into the characters...even the undead ones.


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

    Absolutely!`


    Any additional comments?

    This book made my 2 hour commute fly by!

    "she does it again"
    If you could sum up Death's Rival in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining, exciting, entrancing


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bruiser, you know why :)


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    her voice does amazing things for the characters and bringing them to life, what keeps amazing me the most is her ability to put different inflections on different characters so you can tell them apart just by her voice even if the text weren't obvious as to who is speaking


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

    it is indeed if ever i had the time...
