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.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Hunter has transformed a genre that I usually find stale and boring (other than BDB) and make it one I am totally in love with again. The reason is Jane Yellowrock. She is everything I love in a strong female character. Her strength of character, kindness, heart, and soul all rolled up into one kickass biker mama vampire-slaying package. I don’t think I have loved a character as much since Rylee Adamson.
In Death’s Rival, Jane is on a mission to figure out who and what is making the vampires sick and stop it before it is too late. With traitors around her, this is going to be one of the toughest assignments yet. Can Jane do it?
