I feel badly giving a Jane Yellowrock book 3 stars. This is definitely a series I look forward to reading, an author I enjoy supporting and I have a great deal of interest in and affection for the characters. Like a lot of the other readers I felt like this installment didn't get us anywhere and was much more of the same.

In all fairness, it was intended to be a transition book...a book that set us up for big changes the next book, except I already feel like I have been waiting. While some of th...more

Jane Yellowrock really is a well done urban fantasy series, and this latest installment delivers in almost every way. It's well written, with a smart plot and intricate story telling. The world-building is good; the continuity is great; and the characters are fleshed out and sympathetic.

As the story begins, Jane's beast is still bound to master vamp Leo, and it's just one of many reasons she is depressed. She's still sad about her break-up with Rick; she misses her lost friend Molly; and she is...more

The latest in Jane's tale reminds me of a chocolate covered espresso bean. Smooth, bittersweet on the outside, and hard and full of energy on the inside.

Jane's character is stretching. She's continuing to discover things about herself, including that relationships are difficult, whether they are romantic interests or close friends.

In the meantime, she's also learning that vampires aren't all that they seem. In Jane's world, they never sparkle, they are dark, generally charismatic, and egotistic...more

Since this is very early in the book's release (I got my Kindle download at midnight and as a result got very little sleep!) this review will remain a bit vague to avoid spoilers, but I will share my impressions.

The action packed Skinwalker series continues to grab readers from the start and pull you right into the story. Jane Yellowrock, a shape changing, Harley riding, snarky, Cherokee skinwalker who shares her soul with a mountain lion simply known as Beast, has a little problem. In a nutshel...more

Very well connected to previous books. excellent story line, nice twists and turns.
Erica Williams
I just loved this book. Jane is a perfectly imperfect heroine. She screws up, she falls, she says the wrong thing, but she keeps trying. She keeps learning, she keeps growing, and this tale is more of what I've come to expect from her. I won't post spoilers, because I just won't, but I can say that inroads are made in some relationships, and one person in particular, gets called on his BS, which frankly, I've been hoping for for a while. The action in this book is fantastic and fast moving. I lo...more
Marsha
This is a difficult review tor me to write because I love the Jane Yellowrock series but feel that "Blood Trade" is more of the same ole same ole. The series is beginning to feel stagnate to me with Jane rushing off go one job after another, battle after battle, and no progress towards resolution in her love life or lack there of.

In this installment, Jane goes against the wishes of Leo, Master of the City of New Orleans and accepts s job from Hieronymous, MOC of Natchez, Mississippi. The big H...more
Ellese
Yay! The new Jane Yellowrock does not disappoint fans! Although it is hard to remember since the last time I read Jane's epic saga, I got pulled right into the story and its action. In the last tale, we were able to learn more about Jane and her past, now we are learning more about her present (some of her past) and a lot about relationships. Or better yet, Jane's relationships with a certain primo and black panther. I really did enjoy getting to see this side of Jane more, simply because we don...more

*First Thoughts*

Blood Trade, the sixth book in the Jane Yellowrock series, mostly takes place in Natchez, Mississippi where the master of the city, Hieronymus, is having problems with Naturaleza vampires left over from Death's Rival. The Naturaleza's are causing major problems for the residents of the city and asks Jane for help through Reach.

Jane has been through a lot over the course of this series. The one thing that hasn't changed is the number of weapons s...more
Matt Thias
Another great addition to what amounts to the second half of Jane Yellowrock's storyline. We've got all the old characters, fleshed out in even more detail, with a great storyline full of twists and turns and... THANKFULLY... Not as heavy on the three page deep descriptions of unrequited lust that bogged down the earlier novels. (I know it's just a story, but not every human interaction is tainted with unspoken sexual tension... And lets be frank: when adults want to get it on, they get it on.)...more

Summary: Contrary to Leo's wishes, Jane heads out to Natchez, MS to help with rogue vampires. A problem where Naturaleza vampires, those that want unlimited human cattle, have "disappeared" over 100 people. Can she and her friends stop the bad guys? Bad guys that are not what they seem...

Review: Action, fantasy, romance, self-evaluation, forgiveness. All of these elements appear in Jane Yellowrock's newest tale by Faith Hunter.

Blood Trade is a novel of beginnings and spiritual awareness. We lef...more

I normally love this series but this book to me felt almost like a Novella ..started a lot but didn't complete anything.. Jane is still confused about rick and Bruiser

Loved it!

I loved this book! I'm a big fan of the series in general, and Blood Trade continued all the great action, scene setting, and character interaction I have come to expect while taking the storyline in a promising direction. Buy it today. You won't be able to put it down.

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...more

Synopsis:

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 v...more

I love urban fantasy. Ask me for a list of good authors and I can give you 10 or 12 without working too hard for them...but ask me who my favorites are and the list gets much smaller.

One of the best is Faith Hunter and her Jane Yellowrock series. I read mysteries too and part of what makes a really REALLY good book of any sort is a balancing act between straight plot, great characters, and an interesting world. Faith manages that delicate balance. And her character Jane Yellowrock--cougar-shift...more

Huh???

This is really frustrating.
Neither like it nor hate it.
Yet I am feeling disturbed and frustrated that I seem not to feel any connection with it or immerse myself into the story.
Frankly speaking.. it is just Jane killing vamps. What else right?

It feels that Jane is getting soft and teary eyes all the time.
Hookey gluey to the men issue in her life.
Her obsession in what she is wearing for her job.. her so called toys aka guns.. knives..
It is all blah blah blah to me....

I hate Rick. Still...more

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 h...more

loved it!! wish there was more to read I always feel like I've forgotten to do something after I finish a Jane yellowrock. its like a fantom limb haunting and under your skin till the next one comes out... oh the wait.

so the love interest triangle continues, Leo is still a sneeky manipulative bastard still have an inkling in the back of my mind that he's playing Jane to what means I'm not sure. love eli and the kid wish Jane and eli would hook up. its easy with them they flow. where as the othe...more

Jane is back, and her beast is chained to Leo. Something that Jane does not want him to know, like ever... It was funny reading about her beast puddling into a mush whenever she hears Leo's voice. Strong, big mate :)

Scared to shift, in fear that her beast will go straight to Leo and happily roll around in his bed, she eagerly takes on a job that is on the border of Leo's ruling. The Big H's territory. There she is given a lot of money per head of vampire that she kills. Only these vampires are s...more

Jane Yellowrock, 6 feet of native american skinwalker, rogue vampire hunter, and running target from powerful men creatures...you just can't overlook this book. If you've been following the series, Blood Trade brings Jane into a stronger seat of power within herself, and the rock upon which those who care for her lean on. Last book, Jane went through powerfully personal betrayals and had to work her way through the consequences, on her own. In this book, Jane comes into the story muscled up and...more

I didn't think Faith Hunter could surpass Death's Rival's excellence, but yeah, she did. What a phenomenal series this has turned out to be. Each book has gotten better and better and this one is spectacular. All the characters, even secondary ones evolve and grow in each installment. Especially Jane. She has turned out to be one of the best female characters in urban fantasy. Might even beat out Kate Daniels for top spot. She's that good.
I'm happy that the love triangle looks like it's met its...more

Didn't even finish this yet and I love it. Totally worth buying and receiving five stars. Jane is just such a kickass character even with her boy troubles, lol.

Update:
Finished! Lol! Like I said Jane is a great character and I love her relationship with the Kid and Eli. The little moments of off and on tension between Bruiser, Rick, and Jane were nice touches but weren't a focal point which I was alright with. Also Jane's relationship with her inner Beast is always fun. All together really great...more

This is the best in the series so far. All the things we love about Jane and Beast. Rick, Soul, Bruiser all make appearances. Just amazingly well written and connected.
Leslee
So awesome!!! Jane Yellowrock is one of the baddest vamp hunters in the genre! Definitely need to be read in order. I just love Faith Hunter!
♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme
YUCK! I don't like bugs. Vampires turning into a buglike creature just creeps me out. Ms. Hunter does a great job in this story and I'm not sure why I waited so long to read this one. This is 3.5 star for me. I'm still a big fan of Ms. Hunter.

Jane is becoming more and more entrenched with the Vampires. She seems to be gaining too much notoriety. The vampire politics seem to become more and more complicated and she can't get away from it.

What is frustrating is it seems Jane's love life is still...more
Tabitha (Pabkins)
Blood Trade has the almost non-stop action we've come to expect and hunger for in the Jane Yellowrock series, making it another good addition.

Some highlights that I loved:

- The new characters Eli and Alex 'the Kid'. I think they were a dynamic that was really needed in Jane's life. Especially since Molly lives so far away and might not be in the picture so much? Hopefully that won't be permanently the case. I do however think that how quickly these characters became "family" for her was a bit f...more
Maggie K
I 'mostly love' this series. Jane is a skinwalker, so it's a bit different. She is badass, but does make mistakes. The supernatural romance , while off, is kept to a minimum (besides thinking about it too much)

In this take, Jane is off to clean up the Naturalezas leftover from the last book. The twists and turns are to be expected, and were well done.

Now, one problem I have had with this series is her attraction to 'Bruiser'. I get her attraction to Rick, but, he is a cheater. Undercover cheatin...more

After being forced to be a blood meal for Leo, and falsely accusing Ricky-Bo of trying to kill her, Jane Yellowrock has been one sad puppy or cougar to be more precise. Eli and Alex Younger are thinking about finding different jobs until Jane is asked to go to Natchez to take out the Naturaleze Vamps that have been terrorizing the city.
Beast is still chained to Leo so Jane hasn't shifted for months. She is afraid beast will go to Leo and he will take advantage of the tie. Beast still wants Br...more

I have long been a fan of the Jane Yellowrock series, Faith Hunter never disappoints me and she, once again, kicks some arse with the newest addition to the Yellowrock series.

Hieronymus, the Master of Natchez (or MOC for true fans), Mississippi calls in Jane to help him deal with an increasingly worrisome problem. Rogue vampires that follow the Naturaleza way of vampire are terrorizing the city. These are not your average crazy Naturaleza rogue vampires, these are your mutant cracked out on Lord...more

“You gonna put on your big-girl panties and fight with the boys, now?” He looked over his shoulder as if he expected me to blush or something.
“Who says I wear panties?”
I was certain that he flushed red this time. Laughing, I left him shaking his head and went on inside to find the Kid. We had work to do.”
