At Grave's End by Jeaniene Frost


Series: Night Huntress Book 3
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Copyright: 2008
Pages: 342
Book Source: Own purchase

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.

Just let me catch my breath ... WOW, this one was an adrenaline rush, a heart-stopping action packed, electrifying read; it was Cat & Bones on speed! But this aside, I actually had a little tantrum and removed a star rating for the lack of "set the sheets on fire horizontal action", then I relented and replaced half a star for the surprise emotional twist that started a tear-fest. Seriously though I did miss the sizzling passion and the opportunity to add some new Bones & Cat sexcapades to my mental library *grin*

Jeaniene Frost takes the vamp/ghoul world to a whole new level in At Grave's End. Powerful enemies come out of the woodwork, Bones forms an alliance with his grandsire Mencheres and a full scale war keeps the whole team a little on the busy side. Bones is, as always, 'smokin' hot, Cat is put through the wringer in this installment, Tate is an emotional wreck, Justina (Cat's mum) and Rodney had me snorting with laughter, Vlad aka Dracula is a cool addition to the cast of characters and there's enough gore, havoc, magic and mayhem to satisfy the biggest action junkie. 

I don't want to give any spoilers away for those of you who haven't started the series so this review is short and sweet but I do want to say ... What are you waiting for??? Hooked from book 1, this fan is here to stay. Destined For An Early Grave (book 4) is calling me and I can't wait to get my next Cat & Bones fix!

See my reviews for the first two books in the Night Huntress series  - Halfway to the Grave  & One Foot In The Grave - both 5 stars.
