Death’s Rival

Death’s Rival (2012) Faith Hunter

Deaths-RivalJane is back to working for Leo, and she’s out West to gather blood samples from sick vamps–and vamps aren’t supposed to be able to get sick.

There is a lot that happens here. Jane has to pay the piper for statements she made earlier (in the last book). There’s another vamp war brewing (this seems to happen a lot). And Jane hires Eli and his brother Alex, a security team that will belong to her and not Derek Lee (who has lately had problems with Jane).

I caught a lot more this time around than I did my first read–same for the rest of the books, really. And I understand some things much better, but what’s more interesting is seeing the pieces that were casually laid on the board in earlier books coming to bear fruit in later books. Very nicely done.

This isn’t the best cover–not by a long shot–we’re back to Jane wearing ridiculous clothes. But she’s still in a position of power and taking charge. So it’s still better than most of what’s out there.
