Publisher's Summary

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.

This series just keeps getting better!

This is the sixth book in the Jane Yellowrock series and I am just amazed out how this series keeps getting better and better. The seventh book in this series will be titled Black Arts and is scheduled to release in 2014. This was a fantastic read, action packed, and full of all the wonderful characters we’ve come to know and love.

I listened to this on audiobook and it was spectacular. This is one of those books that is actually better on audiobook than in paper format. The narrator sounds completely like I imagine Jane would sound and does an excellent job on other character voices as well. The narration is perfect, capturing tone and emotion wonderfully.

Jane Yellowrock receives a call from the Master of Natchez, Mississippi; he’s got some Naturaleza he needs taking care of and he thinks Jane is the one to do this. Of course when Jane arrives she finds things are much more complicated than that. These aren’t normal Naturaleza...they are something much harder to kill. To add to the complication a friend from Jane’s past, Misha, is in town and wants to talk to Jane about vamps. When Misha disappears Janes realizes that there may be some witchy things thrown into this Naturaleza mess.

These books just keep getting better and better. I absolutely love how fast-paced these books are. I love Jane as a character too; she is funny and heartfelt and tough. Jane continuously struggles with her need to protect humans by killing vamps and the morality behind taking the lives of living (or dead) things. She is battling some depression in this book and it was interesting to read about heroine dealing with that and trying to get on with what needs doing. Jane is trying to figure out how to find some happiness again but it is taking some time.

All of our other favorites are here too. Bruiser is in the story, Rick is back to cause some trouble, and of course the boys (Eli and the Kid) are watching Jane’s back. I love the dynamic between Eli, the Kid, and Jane. It’s like a little vampire killing family and they really provide the backup Jane needs (both emotionally and physically).

I am starting to get a bit sick of the whole love triangle between Rick, Bruiser, and Jane. The romance going on there was kind of at a standstill in this book. There is a ton of tension between Bruiser and Jane and Rick and Jane. It didn’t add a lot to the story and was more distracting than anything. I hope that this love triangle gets resolved soon so that Jane can either develop (or not develop) a relationship with one of those men.

Misha brings along another old friend of Jane’s, Bobby. Bobby is mentally challenged but has some special magic skills of his own. He added a lot to the story with his sunny disposition and gave us a glimpse into Jane’s past as well.

I loved all the witchy elements and vampiric transformation things that were going on in this story. A lot happens and the plot is fairly complex, but I found it all to be incredibly interesting and engaging. There are a lot of very well done action scenes in here and the spidey vamps add a whole new level of creepy to this story.

I also love that there is a contained story here but it ties into the larger story that’s been developing from book to book. It is amazing how Hunter ties all these books together and it really shows how much planning and work she’s put into this series right from the beginning. The book is very well written and I really enjoyed it.

Overall a spectacular addition to this series. I enjoyed it alot. We learn more about Jane’s background and are introduced to many new and interesting creatures and characters. I love how Jane is developing a family of sorts of her own and that she has a good support team at her back. The book in incredibly engaging and really pulls you in. This is definitely more urban fantasy than paranormal romance, which I enjoy. I can’t wait to read Blark Arts! This series is highly recommended to fans of action packed urban fantasy.

Wow, Jane does it again!

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.

Fast action,great characters

What did you love best about Blood Trade?

The interplay by the characters. Even in serious moments the comments made me smile.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Trade?

When Jane would say "I love you too" because in earlier books she couldn't express her feelings as much.

Which scene was your favorite?

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.

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

Fast action with humor and love in a paranormal thriller.

Any additional comments?

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.

Excellent continuation of story arc

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

Great Listen

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!

Excellent Story

I am amazed at how Faith Hunter weaves a story. The vampires in this book are definitely different, YUK. After I got into it, I could not stop listening. I felt like I was actually in a movie. I am so looking forward to the next installment. I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to hear what happens with Jane and the two hunks who love her.

What a dilemna!

READY FOR THE NEXT ONE!

Any additional comments?

I don't think the description of this series does it justice. I waited a long while before finally listening to them because I thought the description sounded awful. Jane is a great character who is tough, but a girl. She has emotions, but she kicks butt. I like her. SHe seems like someone who would actually be interesting to know. She is flawed, but she is thoughtful... as in, full of thoughts. She really considers things, people, and her place in the world. Plus, vampires are fun, right?

Yellowrock in Natchez

I'm sick of the love triangle and the beating herself up, but maybe those things have finally come to a head.

Please, please get an editor!

Love the story, love Ms. Hvams voice, but the mispronounciations in this reading are horrendous. I got so annoyed by hearing the name Hironymous pronounced a different way every time it was spoken that I couldn't finish the book. There were too many other mispronounciations to count - not only city names but simple nouns and verbs, too.
This wasn't a problem in the first four books - did you fire the producer and editor?
Very disappointing.
