AT GRAVE'S END: A Night Huntress Novel - Jeaniene Frost

From the back of the book: Some things won't stay grave's end...

It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield's life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she's successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat's worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover's finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

As if that wasn't enough, a woman from Bones's past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat's about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she's learned as a special agent won't help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself---and Bones---from a fate worse than the grave.


Usually I run in the other direction when I see anything in the back cover description "..with her undead lover...", but I make exceptions when it comes to Bones and Cat as written by Jeaniene Frost. This series is more urban fantasy than paranormal romance, so more action on the streets and only some between the sheets.

Cat is working on her hybrid half human/half vampire and working with the government's paranormal unit. She also has a friend who wishes for more even though said friend knows Cat's with Bones.

And, yummy, the reader gets to hang with Spade, Mencheres and Ian, part of Bones's past. Everyone works together to beat back the big bad, each in their own way. Some are serious, some are smartass, all get the job done.

I dig when I remember why I loved a series in the beginning after finding one on the back of Mt Git'r'Read and getting the chance to read it in practically one sitting since it's just so damned good. Night Huntress series is one of those for me.

Five damned good beans.....
