Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Jane Yellowrock loves a good fight, but this time, the shape-shifting skinwalker might be receiving even more than she bargained for. Natchez, Mississippi is being attacked by rogue vampires, but they aren't your run-of-the-mill blood suckers. In fact, Jane might be in for the skirmish of her life—and this time, she's not alone: She has vowed to protect a gravely ill child in her care. A mass-market paperback and NOOK Book.

From the Publisher
Praise for Faith Hunter:  

“Faith Hunter has created one of my favorite characters, ever. Jane Yellowrock is full of contradictions.”—Fresh Fiction

“Jane Yellowrock is smart, sexy, and ruthless.”—New York Times Bestselling Author Kim Harrison

Meet the Author

A native of Louisiana, Faith Hunter spent her early years on the bayous and rivers, learning survival skills and the womanly arts. She liked horses, dogs, fishing and crabbing much better than girly skills. She still does. In grade school, she fell in love with fantasy and science fiction, reading five books a week and wishing she could "write that great stuff." Faith now shares her life with her Renaissance Man and their dogs in a Enclave of their own.

    Finally, things are looking up for Jane Yellowrock. The previous

    Finally, things are looking up for Jane Yellowrock. The previous book, Death's Rival, left Jane isolated personally, unwillingly entangled
    professionally, and at one of the lowest points in her life. It was, frankly, heartbreaking. As a fan of the series and of Jane in particular, I
    was really hoping for some resolution in Blood Trade. I just couldn't bear to see Jane suffering. Thank you, Faith Hunter, for setting Jane
    on the road to redemption.
    Once again, a job takes Jane to Natchez, Mississippi. Backed by a new team of sidekicks, Jane tackles a new and almost indestructible
    type of vampire while trying to solve a mystery that threatens someone from her past. Because that isn't challenging
    enough, Jane has to coordinate with local and federal law enforcement (including the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart) and rely on
    help from former friends, one of whom bears a grudge against Jane and one who betrayed her. Saving vigilante grandmas; communing
    with spirits; disrupting powerful witch magic - all in a day's work for Jane Yellowrock.
    Besides great action and an intriguing mystery, the book continues Jane's journey of enlightenment and growth. We learn more about
    her past and how it has influenced her character and decisions. We see the origin of Jane's need to stand up to bullies/ oppressors/
    evil... Perhaps her most perplexing trait, Jane's compulsion to finish what she starts - even when it leads her in directions she does not
    want to go, seemingly prioritizing work commitments (to people she neither respects nor trusts) over friends and allies - no longer
    seems immoderate; it is a logical outcome of her early childhood. And best of all, Jane's new insight into her own values and behaviors
    gives her the courage to start mending fences. All is not yet right in Jane's world, but a promising new day is dawning.

    Jane Yellowrock comes out muscled up and swinging in this latest release in Faith Hunter's urban fantasy series.  
    If you've read her books so far, you will still be blown away by this episode of the series where Jane and Beast team up to rid
    Louisiana of "spidey vamps" and deals with a bit of her past that adds another responsibility to her already full plate .  Get 
    this book, turn off the phones and don't answer the door...you won't want to stop reading long enough to answer either one!

    I read extensively, and Faith Hunter has always been in my Top 5

    I read extensively, and Faith Hunter has always been in my Top 5 favorite authors, especially for her Jane Yellowrock books. She does not disappoint with this one. Excellent and believable writing in the Urban Fantasy genre, without being silly or kitschy. I don't want to give too much away, but some of my favorite characters from previous books in this series make a reappearance.There is also some interesting story development that further explores issues w/Jane's Beast, Jane's distant past, and her love life. If you enjoy Urban Fantasy at all, I strongly recommend the Jane Yellowrock series and this book in particular.

    Faith Hunter had done it again..she grabs you in the first sentence and takes you on the ride with Jane Yellowrock and Beast. If you haven't read any of the Jane Yellowrock series, what are you waiting for? I highly recommend Faith Hunter and Jane Yellowrock to anyone who loves paranormal fantasy.

    Jane just gets stronger as she learns more about herself and her beast. The vampires are deliciously evil, and this batch are nearly impossible to dispatch, making even an experienced bounty hunter  have the fight of her life. Magic, mayhem, strong friends  both old and new, the story is the best of the series. But I say that with each Jane release. It's not often that a character grows and develops as Jane and Beast have.

    Jane Yellowrocks tale continues in Blood Trade. More twists and turns than you can shake a big cat at... Yep there is more Beast( a big mountain lion) in this book too. Some of the same characters carried over from previous books. If you like Urban Fantasy this is the series for you.

    I've read a LOT of urban fantasy with a strong female lead. I was reading this genre before the phrase "urban fantasy" was coined. No character has grabbed my attention like Jane Yellowrock, a vampire killer who works for the vamps. Add in Beast, the mountain lion she shares her body with, and you've got a combination that goes way beyond kickass slayer. Blood Trade is the 6th book in the series and continues Jane's/Beast's adventures in the Deep South that started with Skinwalker. As Jane grows as an individual, my understanding of her character grows too, as does my conviction that Faith Hunter has created a unique person that will touch every reader.

    Once again Faith Hunter brings us another fantastic adventure in the life of Jane Yellowrock, shape shifter and vampire hunter.  
    Jane is offered a job in Natchez, Mississippi and though her adventures in that city to date have been harrowing she will do just about anything to get out of NOLA and away from the MOC Leo Pellissier for a while.  This trip is no less dangerous maybe even more so.  There is a new breed of vamp out there and they are much harder to kill.  She has help in the form of the Younger brothers and eventually PsyLED in the form of Rick LeFleur and company and of course Bruiser shows up to protect his and Leo’s interests.  When it seems that there are witches involved Jane calls in Big Evan and despite their personal problems Evan agrees to help.  Nothing keeps this big cat down for long.
    Rip roaring fast paced rollercoaster adventure from start to finish.

    Jane and the Younger brothers, Eli and Alex, travel to Natchez,

    Jane and the Younger brothers, Eli and Alex, travel to Natchez, Mississippi because the master of Natchez requests her help with the Nautraleza vampires. There is a large number of people disappearing and they believe the remaining Naturaleza are to blame.

    Jane quickly discovers that there is something very strange about the Nautraleza in Natchez, most importantly they seem to be moving more like insects and virtually impossible to kill which makes her job much harder...but when two people from her past get caught this nefarious plot of these new vampires Jane will have to pull out all the stops to save them. If that wasn’t complicated enough, her friend from her past goes missing leaving her very ill young child in Jane’s care.

    Jane is having a tough time dealing with the fallout from her past actions. She must keep a tight lease on Beast because of the bond with Leo. She is having difficulties reconciling her emotions on Brusier’s betrayal and Jane is mourning the loss of Rick.

    Jane’s character growth in this installment was amazing. Even though she is suffering from a sort of despression/funk, she pulls herself together to be the ultimate protector and heroin we’ve come to love.

    I am completely intrigued with the direction Jane’s relationships are taking. A total surprise for me was her changes with Soul. There are others that I can’t mention because it could be considered a spoiler...let me just say there are a few relationships that are evolving and some characters I am very much looking forward to their return in Jane’s life.

    I read this book completely for the pleasure of reading a series I love. I picked it just for me! As a huge fan of the Jane Yellowrock series, I was thrilled with Blood Trade the sixth installment in this series. Riveting from start to finish with lots of brilliant twists and turns, once again Faith Hunter outdid herself. Blood Trade is going on my favorite shelf.

    I've always enjoyed this series, but the first half of this book

    I've always enjoyed this series, but the first half of this book was a little slow for me. Don't know if it was the book or too much distraction while I was trying to read it, but I REALLY enjoyed the second half of this book. I think one of the aspects I like most about this series is that it is hard for me to predict what's going to happen because of the complexity. Usually I see the whole book in my head after a few chapters, but not with this series. It just keeps me guess and puzzling through the clues along with Jane. It's not because it is poorly written, but because it is written so well. Another aspect I appreciate in this series is the fact that it has equal opportunity of the villains being male or female.

    The overall story is getting even more complicated as each book builds on the previous. Jane's love life is also getting more complicated as well and I can't wait to see how it develops in the next book after the Bruiser and Rick revelations in this book. I'm actually hoping that she finds a new man because despite the fact I like both Bruiser and Rick, I don't think they are right for her and might be too week and selfish.

    Despite all the blood and violence in this book, Faith Hunter lets us see more of the maternal and softer, caring side of Jane. We get more glimpses into Jane's past -- her contemporary childhood experiences as well as some puzzling interaction with her biological grandmother. I also enjoyed experiencing the development of Jane, Eli, and the Kid's relationship.

    The ending of this book has a pleasant outcome I didn't see coming. I've been frustrated with the Trueblood family after their anger towards Jane with her killing Evangaline during her evil demon working magic. I could understand their hurt, but not them blaming Jane as through Evangaline was innocent. At the end of this book a resolution to this relationship is introduced.

    Excellent

    As always, I loved the latest adventure with Jane. I'm really glad fences are on their way to being mended. The story was very engaging and provided additional background into Jane's past. I eagerly await the next installment in the series!

    This is a great series!

    If you are new to Jane Yellowrock, go back to the first book. This series is filled with great characters and many more have been added since the first book. Once you start reading, you can't put the book down! There are always surprises and things you didn't see coming. At times it can be funny and other times heart-wrenching. She has two (supernatural) guys pining for her, one of which she loves deeply.

    My Favorite!

    I was in tears at the end of this book. This is the very best Jane Yellowrock to date. It has it all, and all of it very very well written. I was in tears after reading the epilog. Ms. Hunter's characters develop with each story, they are each like wonderful jewels. It was nice to see some closure here, some forgiveness. I love Faith Hunter's work, I have read each and every book. This one was the best of all to date.

    Good Read

    This was an overall good read. There were a lot of new characters which got to be a little hard to keep up with. Some of them would be introduced and not heard from again for half the book. But, I loved Janes interactions with Eli (especially) and his little brother. They are very good additions to the storyline. I like that Rick is back but Bruiser, not so much.
