The ending to Death's Rival (Jane Yellowrock #5) annoyed me. I was seriously thinking of giving up on the series and if I had to wait a year for Blood trade I probably would have. But I finished Death's Rival on the 26th of March and less than a week later I had Blood Trade in my hands. Blood Trade is great. It has everything I love about this series and thankfully no cliffhanger. Jane Yellowrock is battling vampires that are evolving into hideous insect like super-vamps, and not having much luck killing them. It's seat of your pants urban fantasy at it's very best and a good example of why I think Faith Hunter is so much better than her main competition.
