Jane Yellow Rock #6: Blood Trade
by Faith Hunter
Roc, $7.99, 368pp
Publication Date: April 3, 2013
Rogue vampires, followers of the Naturaleza who believe humans are only prey to be hunted, are terrorizing the city of Natchez and causing the Master of Natchez more trouble than he wants. So, who ya gonna call? Jane Yellowrock, skinwalker. Of course he doesn’t give Jane all the pertinent information, he neglects telling her that these vampires are different and much harder to kill and that there is magic involved.

Taking the job against Leo’s wishes, Jane travels to Natchez with her team, Eli and The Kid. Once there, she will deliver the vaccine for the illness plaguing the Natchez vampires as well as hunt down the Naturaleza that are killing humans.

Additionally, Reach has arranged an appointment for her with a reporter, Misha, who wants to do a book about vampires. Misha turns out to be someone from Jane’s past, someone she knows from her days in the children’s home where she was raised. Jane really isn’t interested until she learns who Misha will be bringing with him - Bobby, a very sweet and very special kid Jane protected when they were in the children’s home. But when she arrives, Misha is not there, having gone to collect information from a vampire and never returning. Jane finds Bobby and a very sick girl, along with a letter asking her to take care of them.

Jane searches for Misha, hunts the Naturaleza and tries to find out who their new leader is. Both Bruiser and Rick with his new team, Soul, a supernatural of unknown origin, Brute, a white werewolf, and  Pea, the grindylow, show up to help.

More of Jane’s past is revealed and we begin to see how the events since book one are linked.  We see old friends and new and there is a resolution to Jane’s relationship with the Trueblood family.

Since I had the (then) most recent book in the series, Black Arts, on my to-read pile I decided to reread the entire series as a lead-up.  This is series is highly recommended. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
