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.

Jane Yellowrock returns in another action packed adventure. As always khristina Hvam does an excellent job as narrator givng an intense flavour to the characters and the setting but I am not so sure about parts of the plot. I miss Molly, Leo gets off the hook way too easily for his treatment of Jane and there's just too much angst in the last couple of books about jane's inner conflict over everything from religion, to love to friendship. But the series continues to hold my attention and throws in new characters like Jane's new crew who have the potential to shake things up in the next book maybe

Best of the series by far!
What made the experience of listening to Death's Rival the most enjoyable?
Great story and great narration. I finished this book late at night and I was so hyped up I couldn't fall asleep. I wanted more. I have really enjoyed all the books in this series but I found this story more suspenseful. I loved it.
What other book might you compare Death's Rival to and why?
It is hard to compare this book to another I have read because of the main character's duel nature. The Alfa Omega series by Patricia Briggs, also a great series, has a bit of this with Charles and Brother Wolf. Charles is also influenced by his Native American heritage. While they are very different in many ways, if you like Mercy Thompson and/or Alfa Omega by Patricia Briggs I bet you will like Jane Yellowrock too, but I suggest starting with book one.
What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I think Ms. Hvam does a great job bringing Beast to life. I just don't think I would ever have fully understood the Jane/Beast relationship without her masterful narration.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There is always a chuckle or two in a Jane Yellowrock book but this one put a lump in my throat more that once. That surprised me.
Any additional comments?
I just hope Faith Hunter will write #6 fast, fast, fast!

ANOTHER GREAT ADVENTURE!
I am waiting anxiously for book 6! I really like all the accents and all of the twists and turns of this book's journey. I enjoyed the humor and sarcasm of Jane and of Beast. I think Rick wimped out! And I can't wait to see what Beast is going to do with the Master of the city in the next book :)
