I have a hard time finishing a book when I know that I'm not going to be able to read the next book for a while. And this one was no different for me. Blood Trade is just like the other Jane Yellowrock installments. It's fast paced, action packed, truly heartwarming, and it sinks it's claws right into your heart. Faith Hunter has brought us something truly special with Jane Yellowrock.

As we all know, Jane is a vamp hunter turned vamp protector? I guess that's a good word. MOC Leo Pellissier has trapped Jane to be his enforcer. In Death's Rival, there was some freaky bonding that caused Jane to be connected to Leo on a deep level. When Blood Trade picks up, it's months later and Jane is in a deep funk. Her life hasn't turned out how she thought it would and she's harboring a lot of guilt that she needs to let go of. Luckily a job offer and a connection with an old acquaintance seem to be exactly what she needs. 

A group of Naturaleza vampires are on the loose in Natchez, Mississippi and the MOC is requesting Jane to come clean up. So with her new partners, the Younger brothers, she heads off to make some money and blow off some steam. Things aren't cut and dry and the never really are with Jane. Witch magic becomes a main focus with the Naturaleza. Jane has no idea how to handle it. So she's getting some unexpected help from an old witch, a PSYLED official, and an old unexpected friend. 

Bruiser and Rick are around. And can I say that I'm just sick of this thing between these three? Rick and Jane are at odds because of the past, Jane and Bruiser are at odds because of the past. Beast wants to mate with them both. And it's just a big old mess. Jane needs to pick Bruiser and call it a day. Beast might not mate for life but Beast can't always get every single perspective mate she sniffs out. Bruiser is my pick all the way and has been since the beginning. 

I love Eli and "the Kid". I love that Jane is so close with them and they're basically her family now. There is so much humor and love in these characters and seeing it grow is amazing. I love that we get a glimpse of Jane's beginning after she becomes human again. Beast is there and as we know I love Beast almost as much as I love Jane. Beast just cracks me up. I absolutely adore this series. I can't press enough how awesome Jane and all these characters are. If you haven't read this series, you're so missing out. 



Also the next book in the series came out on January 7th so you're going to want to pick it up.

  1. Great review of Blood Trade (I've read it and agree with most of your thoughts)! Looking forward to what you have to say about Black Arts, the January 7th release in the Jane Yellowrock series.

  2. I probably shouldn't read a review this far into a series, but this has been on my TBR for awhile. Is the love triangle a big portion of the story? Those really frustrate me.

    1. No it's actually not. I really hate love triangles myself and this one doesn't really bother me. It's more UF than romance anyhow.

  3. Nope, she really should not choose Bruiser I don't like him. He will always put Leo first, and not Jane. So, no. I hope for someone new who deserves Jane and Beast and loves them both.

    1. I respectfully disagree. Rick is a complete ass. I think Bruiser understands Jane on a deeper level than Rick ever could.

    2. Lol I am not that big a fan of Rick either, but well, he is a cat too. But let's hope for a new choice. I read somewhere, there will be 15 books, so plenty of time for true love.

    3. Maybe she'll hook up with Leo. Lol. 15 books would be crazy and awesome.

    4. O please no, he kind of raped her.

    5. I wasn't serious. But he definitely drank from her without her permission.
