Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who’s always up for a fight - even if it means putting her life on the line....
The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane. Now, her simple job has turned into a fight to stay alive...and to protect the desperately ill child left in her care.

Great to see Jane at it in another city with the same old crew, and nice to see some new characters (eg Sole). Good relationship between Jane and Eli and the Kid. LOTS of sexual tension between Jane and Bruiser and Rick. Not enough of Beast.
I love Faith Hunters' stories. I usually hate books that keep going, but Jane is a character one can't get enough of. Please write the next book, but Jane needs a mate soon :)
The interplay by the characters. Even in serious moments the comments made me smile.
When Jane would say "I love you too" because in earlier books she couldn't express her feelings as much.
When Rick was sitting in her room and declared that she was his and he would kill Bruiser if he got in the way. When he said he would find a way for them to be together.
Fast action with humor and love in a paranormal thriller.
This books is as good as the first one. The author has developed the characters very well and I can't wait for the next one.
I'm loving audio books more each day-being able to walk the dog, do the dishes or keep an eye on grandkids in the pool-all while listening to a book is great. My favorite genres are mystery/romance, some paranormal and lots of Science Fiction.
Faith Hunters new series continues to be well developed as the primary characters are more deeply explored in Book 6 of the Jane Yellowrock series.
Conflict both physical and emotional is explored as Jane is called to discover the reason why the 'super vamps' seem to be resistant to her typical methods of making renegade vampires truly dead.
Janes personal relationships with her two primary love interests are further explored but we readers/listeners have even more exploration into Janes history and background-much is revealed in this book and my interest remained peaked.
In my opinion, the strong woman with a gentle heart in the series is a great role model for women from the older teen up to any mature age (I, for example, am 70) who enjoys her action mixed with introspection. Although I enjoy books with good love scene writing I also appreciate that Jane doesn't jump into bed with just anyone. She thinks about what she wants/needs before acting.
The action scenes are great-well written with lots of information about guns etc. The male reader would probably enjoy 6this series more than he expects...I encourage men who like action books to try the Jane Yellowstone series for light reading.
I loo forward to more in this series
I really enjoy this series.. It has everything, guns, magic, supernatural, explosions, humor.. it all.. Ready for the next one.
I loved this book – Khristine Hvam is on my list of A+ Narrators
If you are checking out this book and have not read the other books from the Jane
Yellowrock Series, I strongly suggest starting with Book 1 – Skinwalker!
If you have read the other books, then you will likely already own this book because you have been waiting to read/listen to it.
My opinion – loved it!
Spoilers below (hopefully not too many as I ramble)
In Blood Trade Jane is still depressed, suffering from the aftermath of the last book. I must say I was glad to see some of the emotions playing out in this book from the forced binding in the last book. The section where Jane has a conversation with Bruiser was very good. I really liked the way that played out. I do still hope to see more follow in this relationship.
Jane takes a job cleaning up some of the mess that was left behind at the end of the last book. We have witches, evil vamps, Rick and company (Loved the sections with Sol and Pia). Actually, I just loved the interaction in this entire book, a good deal of interaction that just adds layers of interest and depth to the relationships. And I really am looking forward to the time when Sol and Jane actually talk more. I would like to see these two become friends. Jane is in need of female friends.
Other note-worthy events include
Rick and Jane in which Rick claims he will kill Bruiser if he every lays a hand on Jane then drag Jane off.
Bruiser explaining what has happened to him, Bruiser kicking major ass
Beast knocking the tar out of the white wolf
Jane knocking the tar out of the white wolf
Beast nuzzling/scent marking Rick again
Pia knocking the stuffing out of Rick (a few times)
Sol – love to know more about this character for sure. Hope to see more of her
Oh I just loved the whole thing. Read it/listen to it if you haven’t already!
Blood Trade was a great addition to this series. I really enjoy serial books and this is one of my favorites. Faith Hunter continues to find new and humorous employment for Jane. I love the humor and often find myself laughing out loud.
Khristine Hvam as the narrator is awesome. She has the two things I look for in a narrator - the ability to differentiate the characters and the ability to express the action.
If you like a fun series - this is a good one.
I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend. The characters are rich and interesting. The plots are well developed and well written. It is great moment when I come across something in the writing that really sings.
Jane Yellowrock is a very rich character and I love to go along with her on the adventure. She is tough and resilient.
Jane is the star of the book but all of the characters are well written and performed.
The entire book is a real thrill.
You can read the books in any order but you will get the most from them if you start from the beginning and have time to build an affection for Jane and an appreciation for all of the key characters and their history.
I heart scifi, and have become addicted to listening instead of reading, or even watching tv.
It was good. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but... I was so entirely swept up in the last book, and this one didn't pull me in as hard. It felt much more like character and feeling development than the action packed wow moments the last book had. As if the plot with the witches and spider vamps was an afterthought. None of this is bad, just an observation. We do learn a lot about different people like Sol, Rick, and the relationship with the Younger brothers and Jane. Leo and his manipulation, and Bruisers new smell. I think it needed more beast. Beast is so cunning and smart, but she was mostly asleep or just aiding in night vision... I missed her.
Overall it is good, worth a credit, and I think it lead to further interesting things.
Another totally awesom book from Ms. Hunter and very well narratored by K. Hvam. The story of Jane Yellowrock moves on as Jane still tries to find herself, while doing things she is totally against, but knows she has follow through with a job, its changing her and shes worry that she may lose herself. If you follow the series then you'll know she has lost her friendship with BBF Molly and her daughter Angie baby, this book gives us an look into that...A very good series...
