I began One Grave at a Time with this expression: and ended with this one:
Photobucket

The main reasons why I adore the Night Huntress novels:

1. Bones.
2. Cat.
3. The romance between the two.
4. Amusing and awesome side characters (Vlad!).
5. Lots of awww-worthy scenes.
6. An utterly engaging plot.

Of those six reasons, only one of them is found in One Grave at a Time in abundance, and that is Cat. There is not nearly enough Bones, none of Vlad, almost no cute and heart-stopping fights/playful bantering betwe...more

It seems that the cover for the 6th book is out already...
And guess what, they change the model! I admit I like the previous model, but this one not bad either :)Her hair is down, and the cat finally make appearance *hello Van Helsing*

I love the stepback too...



Like always, we can't see ALL Bones's face, but no problem :P

The release date is August, 30th, so we just wait 3 months to read this. Good, I really hate waiting so long... Just ordered my copy! LOL!

UPDATE

The trailer of One Grave at a Tim...more
AH
I didn't like it. I didn't hate it. I did expect more. Part of the allure of this series is the great cast of characters: Cat and Bones and their amazing secondary characters - Ian, Spade, Mencheres, Marie, and Justine. This book fell flat for me. Once again, I found myself with the dreaded book ADHD. I constantly put down the book and did other stuff. I never did that with the earlier books.

Here's the thing - Cat and Bones have lost their sizzle. Yes, Bones is still hot and he has rippling musc...more

The Night Huntress series is a big guilty pleasure of mine. I love the characters, the dialogue and each new challenge presented to Cat and Bones in every book. They are not deep stories and there is quite a large emphasis on romance and sex, rather than mysteries, but they're pleasurable and addictive... like chocolate. And they're also better than a great deal of the paranormal genre because Jeaniene Frost writes fantastic characters and banter between them.

It's more than just paranormal roma...more

I own every book Jeaniene Frost has written. I Love Cat and Bones. The first four books in the series are just plain old awesome. The last book (5) was just OK, it wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. I think I rated it four stars, but more of 3.5. This latest book--One Grave at a Time, just wasn't that good. I'm sorry to say it, because I really love Ms. Frost, and I don't want to insult her hard work, but I owe it to my blog readers to put aside my personal feelings towards the author, and give my...more
Aestas Book Blog
I'm hoping and praying that Frost has the strength to be one of the few authors out there who are able to carry her hero & heroine through to the end of their series while keeping them both alive and happily together as a couple. If any two characters ever deserved a HEA, its Cat and Bones. They are the best couple character ever written hands down. They are madly in love with no bull***t and no stupid love triangle (SO SO sick of authors writing 2 or more guys for their heroine to choose fr...more
It's just me Shelly B
This is going to hurt me to say this but......

This is the weakest book in this series.....WEAK WEAK WEAK!!!!!


Whewwwwww that hurt my heart to say that because every book in this series so far is KICK ASS!!!! Let me just say I only have ONE more book to complete this series so 6 out of 7 KICK ASS books is a great ratio!!!!

However will one book keep me away from finishing the MOST BADASS PNR/UF SERIES> I've ever read.......


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!


So onward I march to last book!!!!!!

ONE GRAVE AT A TIMEwas everything and more after my slight disappointment with the last book. I think I didn't realize how much I actually missed Cat and Bones until I started reading this book and then my love came back blasting in at full speed. Cat and Bones are back again this time are trying to capture a bad guy who is already dead and the question that arises is how are you suppose to kill someone that is already dead.

ONE GRAVE AT A TIMEis more filled with action then romance if you ask me...more

Cat’s got her hands full in this one. As the Red Reaper, she’s been on death’s door plenty of times. But when a threat to all women arises, Cat can’t seem to keep her temper at bay. Vengeance must be served and Cat is more than willing to dish it out.

Kramer, a sick-minded ghost who has the ability to become flesh and bone on All Hollow’s Eve is on the rampage, willing to brutalize women he believes to be witches. In his human years, he has brutalized woman and burned them alive. Beyond death, he...more
Jeann (Happy Indulgence)
Being an avid reader of the first 5 books, it's evident that the series is sadly beginning to lose momentum. It seemed like the author was clutching at straws with the plot to create a completely out-of-the-blue arch enemy that you somehow fail to care about.

What I have loved in all of the previous books, even when Cat and Bones were fighting, was the strong emotions causing through the main character, the fast-paced action, the great side-characters, the witty remarks, and of course the passion...more
Suzanne the Mighty (Under the Covers Book blog)
I have been looking forward to this book for ages, I am a HUGMONGOUS fan of this series, Cat and Bones are one of my favorite couples and well, you all know how I feel about Bones....*trails off into a day dream involving silk ties, whipped cream and big fangs* Anyway, so I was looking forward to this book, but for me it didn't quite reach 5 stars.

I think one of the main reasons this didn't reach 5 stars was because it felt like a novella that had been stretched as much as possible to try and r...more

This is crazy I haven't read This Side of the Grave yet and I want this book so bad!!!

Update 7 June 2011:

Okay, I really want this to be published already, I keep re-reading the series thinking that by the time I do this will be out, unfortunately I can't time travel to October...

Gah!!! Just finished, review to come in a couple days. (:

I can't wait to read this! It's such a brilliant series, aahhh, and Bones is so hot. I wish I had a Bones, hehe.

3.5 stars

Hmmm, this one is stuck right in the middle of three and four stars and neither fit! All the things we love about this series are present - just not a whole novels worth.

I love Cat and Bones and, unlike others, I love their relationship in this book. Rather than all the drama between them, their's is a solid yet deepening relationship with a love so strong it's palpable. That is wonderfully refreshing and encouraging. I love how Ms. Frost writes their relationship, the subtle looks,...more
Tami
I'm giving this one a strong 3.5 stars. I love Jeaniene Frost and this series. Bones and Cat have become two of my all time favorite fictional characters. Yet, I just couldn't get into this story as I had done with the others. I did enjoy meeting some new characters. Tyler is a hoot and I hope there will be more of him in the future books. Elizabeth was a welcomed addition and I love that her and Fabian now have each other. I'm really not sure what it was about this one that didn't have me over...more
Mandi Schreiner
One Grave at a Time is book six in one of my favorite paranormal series. What I love is that Jeaniene Frost has given us a series where the hero and heroine has had a very strong relationship since book one. Okay, maybe they had some time apart between book one and book two (four years, but who is counting?) but for the most part these two have been a couple. They have had their ups and their very big downs, but Jeaniene Frost has made their relationship fresh and engaging in each book. She has...more

3.5 stars

I feel like I'm sort of betraying my love for Night Huntress. But, it's important for me to be honest and fairly rate/review all the books I read without being biased to my favorite series'. Although I could probably fluff this up because I do really love Night Huntress and Cat and Bones and the whole gang, I'm not going to. I didn't hate this, but it is probably my least favorite Night Huntress book (I even liked Destined for an Early Grave better).

My biggest peeve with the book is tha...more
Jen (Red Hot Books)
I'll be honest. I went into this book fearing the worst. The last installment in this series left me wanting and I was afraid the best days of Cat & Bones were behind us. This book didn't quite measure up to the glory of the early books, but it was better than the last one.

It picks up shortly after where the events of This Side of the Grave left off. Cat is still carrying the residual effects of Marie Laveau's blood magic. And her uncle Don has appeared to her as a ghost. He can't move on to...more

3.5 stars

Love Cat and Bones and it was nice to get back to them after a year long break for me. Their relationship is solid, and it's great to just focus on how much they love each other instead of questioning their motives behind every move.

The reason for the low rating is that I felt like this book was very different from the rest of the series. Cat's team only made a few cameo appearances and Mencheres and Vlad were completely absent. I guess I know that they can't all be in every book, but i...more

I bought it.
I started reading it.
I tried.


It was not bad.
I have seen most of it already.
I was in Cat's head.
Bones was sexy and cool.
They did some stuff.
There was a week little plot.

Then I just stopped.
I did not finish it.

Bones is Spike from Buffy,right?
Well, I loved Spike!
But if I google James Marsters I will realize yet again that his time is up. He aged.

He is no longer Spike.
Bones is no longer Bones.


He did not age. He just dulled.
I feel like I have been married to this character for so long, an...more

*** 4.5 Stars ***


There is no vampire couple in the urban fantasy world that is sexier or more lovable than Cat and Bones. That is a fact.

They are so sweet and passionate and fiercely protective of one another.

"There were words for what he meant to me, but if I studied every language ever spoken for the next thousand years, I still wouldn't find enough of them to describe it."

Cat continues to be funny, selfless, kindhearted, and courageous. While Bones is his usual suave, cunning, and lethally po...more

Recommends it for: paranormal fans
Another great addition to the Cat & Bones books! Very good mix of action, suspense, romance and humor. This book felt more UFish--heavy on the plot and less focus on the romance. That worked fine for me, since I like both UF and PNR. There is one especially romantic scene that turns steamy (as we expect from Frost!) so that hopefully will keep romance fans happy. I liked that Cat & Bones were happy together the entire book--no relationship troubles like in past books. It was good seeing...more
✽ Sharon is an emotional book junkie ✽
This book picks up with Cat and Bones at their house with their ghost friend, Fabian. Fabian brings over a friend of his who has been trying to kill another ghost for hundreds of years. Kramer is a very powerful and evil ghost so naturally Cat has to go help before Kramer gets to carry out his evil plan.

There is a bit of a background story with a new guy, Madigan, who is a major jerk. I kept expecting something more to come of him but I'm guessing that will happen in future books.

This is one of...more

3.5 stars thanks to the hot sonovabich Ian is.

Nothing changed much since my opinion on the previous book.

I just love Ian in so many levels I wish he'll have a book of his own. his sense of humore is what I love most. Denise has turned into a dragon, which was really cool. also we learn more about ghosts in Jeaniene's Frost world and their ability (i they are strong enough) to materilize. some of the plot arc is dedicated to building the ground to the next book (I really hate Don's replacement)...more

Ok, been thinking on this one...I LOVE Cat and Bones, so gave it 4 Stars. The story itself, more like 3 Stars.

*SOME SPOILERS*



Cat & Bones are asked to help destroy a ghost that has been hunting and killing 'witches' for hundreds of years. Yes, our beloved duo have become the 'ghostbusters', and the ghost was more like a cockblocker because every time Cat & Bones started to get a wee bit naughty he shows up! And when FINALLY they are alone, we get a so so smexy scene, and after waiting so...more

All the darkness lately made it easy to forget the world contained more than people trying to hurt other people. It had beauty, too, if you knew where to look - and remembered to open your eyes.

What a perfect installment to the Night Huntress series! One Grave at a Time was nothing short of full on adrenaline and actioin. This series is on fire and the flames are just as strong as they were at the beginning of this series.

In One Grave at a Time, Bones and Cat are hoping for a bit of downtime af...more

One Grave at a Time picks up immediately after the ending of This Side of the Grave, as Cat deals with the aftermath of her new gift and we see how she's adjusted to a life in which she's surrounded by a crowd of ghostly groupies - ground rules are a must, as you can imagine. Quickly a gaggle of ghosts are the least of her problems, since a favor to her ghost friend Fabian has Cat tracking down a powerful malevolent witch hunter's ghost who has continued his hunt past the grave and she only has...more

Aaaaaah *smells the book* the sweet smell of one of my favorite drugs. I’m addicted to this series. And I have a major crush on Bones. There I said it! So imagine how excited I was about this. Hell I was counting down the days until it got released. *sigh* I kind of regret it now.

The score I’m going to give it will be a bit cruel. I really wanted to give it a perfect one but I can’t. It doesn’t compare to the previous ones. *prays* Please don’t ruin another series for me! I’ve already have a cou...more

klasik kedicik kitaplarından. Eğlenceli,heyecanlı,aksiyonlu. Tabikide kedicik ve bones'un o ilk kitaplardaki tatlı sert atışmalarını kurlarını özlemiyor değiliz. evli çiftler gibi ilişkileride monoton ve sıkıcı olmuş gibi. :P gerçi "havadaki" münasebetleri pek sıkıcı değildi hani :D İşleri başlarından o kadar aşkın ki aşka vakitleri pek kalmıyor.
Kitabın yıldızı bence Ian ve gay medyum Tyler'dı. Tyler'ın bones ve Ian'a yazıldığı sahneler çok güldürdü. Ian zaten espirileriyle gerçekten süperdi. O...more

In the lead up to All Hallows Eve, a misogynistic ghost plans to kidnap and kill three ‘witch’ women . . . but not if the Red Reaper, Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones, have anything to say about it.

Heinrich Kramer was a bad man in life and has become downright evil in death. When Cat’s ghost friend, Fabian, introduces Cat to one of Kramer’s old victims (now a ghost herself) she and Bones know they cannot let this ghost murder more innocent’s.

Meanwhile, Cat’s old government squad of superna...more
