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

"Catherine Kathleen Crawfield, will you marry me?"-Bones

First read 2/23/2014 Reread 11/22/2015

At Grave's End, The 3rd book in the Night Huntress Series, was action packed and full of bombshells. Kidnap, torture, backstabbers, near death, and enemies of old trying to kill you and everyone you love. Just another day in the lives of Bones and Cat! I don't think I can't write a review on this book without spoilers, because so many major things happen in it, if I don'

I enjoyed this book for the most part; however, I missed the strong connection and romance between Cat and Bones that was prevalent in the first two books. That's not to say there wasn't romance, because there was, it was just watered down considerably in this story. Plus, I'm beyond tire of Tate. Why Cat allows him to continually disrespect Bones is beyond me. I lost a lot of respect for her character in this book because of that.

At Graves End is a good addition to this series. Even t

Whew! What a crazy, thrilling read...I feel like I just spent days in a gruesome, gory amusement park, on a ride that just wouldn't stop! I'm not sure where to begin in describing this book.

I'll start with the obvious. This book started out as almost all Urban Fantasy, with Bones and Cat and company going from one confrontation to another, fighting the baddies with lots of gore and mayhem, and their usual wit and sarcastic humor. My, how the heads rolled in this one (some literally)...for those

It completely lacks in buttsecks. So other than that, there's not much to say other than Bones' overprotectiveness is getting on my nerves.

She's a big girl. Just because someone looks at her wrong, doesn't mean they need to be introduced to the business end of Mr Sharp and Pointy.

Also, they're totally an evil empire and they just don't know it. They've killed more people than most natural disasters can even manage. All in the name of buttsecks... err, love.
This was another fun instalment in the Night Huntress series.

Cat and Bones are back to their ass-kicking best as they fight off an assassination attempt from her evil father and then get caught up in a full blown vampire war as it becomes apparent that a 2000 year old master vampire from Bones and Mencheres past supported the assassination attempt.

The plot was fast paced with plenty of intense action scenes. We also had plenty more of the romance and humor that was such a big part of the first
Really, these books should have a warning on their cover:
Once you start, you can't get enough. They are like a drug; you get high on Bones.

Do I need to say more?
Life should be great for Cat Crawfield, with her undead lover Bones by her side, a great job kicking the undead’s butt and friends whom have her back, but when Cat and Bones are force to stop an all out vampire war they’re in for a the fight of their lives...

The more I read The Night Huntress series the more I can’t help but fall in love with all of the characters and the world Frost has built. Some series suffer as they go along, but Frost doesn’t disappoint At Grave’s End with non-stop actio
2.5 stars. Slightly better than One Foot in the Grave, but not good enough.

Like One Foot, incidents in this book are strung together with little thread. They go here, they go there, they kill someone, someone tries to kill Cat, someone tries to kill Bones, they go somewhere else, they shuffle Cat's friends & family between safehouses, they go another place, they kill someone else. Absurdly complicated plots were brainstormed for seemingly needless reasons (usually revolving around Cat's safe
If you haven't read books 1 and 2 in this series, don't start with this entry. Really, just... don't. If you haven't read books 1 and 2, don't read this review.

Of the three books in this series to date, this entry was my least favorite.

What I liked:

- Bones. He can do no wrong. As a side note, it seemed like every sentence he spoke had some British-ism in it. Don't know why I noticed that, but I did. It didn't bother me - just had to his smoking hotness.

- Vlad. I was like, oh yeah, when I first
This book is actually more of a 3 1/2 star.

While reading my review, keep in mind that I did enjoy the book. I plan to continue reading the series and get the fourth book, but if my problem with this book consumes the next book I think this series and I will have to break up.

I loved a lot of the side characters in this one. Mencheres continues to be intriguing, although at times I just wanted to smack him and tell him to man up. Spade and Annette are back for more page time too. Who really caught
OMG you guys what's up with our (once) favorite authors and series?

Frost, Cole, Kenyon, Kleypass, Moning, Roberts (and a few others) seem to have taken the easy way out and have gone l-a-z-y with their work. I for one am starting to get tired of paying full price ($8.00 a pop mind you) for books half the size, large font, and with an embarrassing amount of copying and pasting...

I guess the only way we're going to get our great reads back are to quit buying these so-called "next installments" and
actual rating; 4.25 stars

I love Cat and Bones, but I could easily stop reading this book and not think about it. It's the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars.

All I have to say is one word... BONES

This series is so F-ing good. Jeaniene Frost writes urban fantasy just how I like it: Funny, sexy, action packed, and silly-drama free.

I'm not going to do a whole analyze-y review because I'm just going to circle back inevitably to the idea that "Bones is a sexy god... me likey" over and over. Let's just say that whenever I pick up a book in this series I get consistently amazing stuff.

This book is just so quotable. Here is one that made me laugh out loud:
5 Awesome Stars.

In this third book we have Cat and Bones, now bound by blood and looking for a break.
Except that having a break is basically an impossible event in their lives and this time a vampire is seeking revenge against Bones that revenge is sought trough Cat, because everyone knows how Bones will react if something would happened to her.
And they are right, in a war against someone they don’t know and against powers that plot against them, their love and their “lives”, they are facing p

This third installment in the Night Huntress series just completely eradicated any 'buts' I had about the last two novels. I'd gone on and on about my love for the characters (especially Bones) and the fun, witty dialogue; but I still acknowledged that there was something lacking in Frost's plots that kept me from awarding the full 5 stars that I wanted to.

This book changed that. The plot was developed, fast-paced and sucked you in from the beginning. The other books were a lot more laid back an

Many times in our lives we’ve been powerless, but not this night. Right now we have the power to choose the manner in which we die. If you have been a master of nothing else in all your days, you are now a master of this moment. And I for one am going to give such an answer to this insult that others will dearly regret not being by my side to see it.

Wow! Where do I even start with this book?! At Grave’s End is probably my favorite in the Night Huntress series so far. It made me laugh, it made me

Reviewed for; book release Jan09

Wow. I just finished “At Grave’s End” by Jeaniene Frost and I think I may need a few minutes to calm my racing heart. This series has grown in many ways from the first book, “Halfway to the Grave”. It’s a combination of paranormal, romance, humor, and action. All these factors are combined into stories that grab your emotions and your heart rate and don’t let up even when you finish the last page.

The half-vampire Cat should be happy. She and her
One of the best things about this series is that we are never left with mother of all mother cliffhangers! Every book resolves itself but leaves a thread that builds into the next installment. The third in the Night Huntress series is my fave so far, it was action-packed and full of whiplash revelations. Bones is seriously hot stuff. He's such a great hero, being tender with Cat yet ruthless with whoever crosses him.

Cat is her kick-ass self, showing she's got as much brains as brawn.
fun fun fun! loved all the new characters! yay vlad! sad ending though......

Every single time they refer to Bones as Crispin, this guy pops into my head:

I have to physically shake my head so that I picture something hot like this instead:

Oh yeah, baby!

I liked this book, though not as much as the second book but more than the first.

I want to talk about Tate because I feel so bad for this guy. He kind of reminds me of Butch from BDB in Dark Lover.

*Tate is interested in a girl who obviously isn’t meant for him. Same with my man, Butch.

I have to admit that I found the beginning really slow and was starting to feel a bit detached, while I love Cat and Bones as a couple, I was getting a bit bored with the romance and the whole scenario involving Tate. Tate’s constant attempts at goading Bones, as well as making gooey eyes at Cat nonstop, were annoying me; he is one character that got on my nerves, his obsession with cat, as well the tit for tat with Bones are getting tiresome.

However this soon changed, the plot took a turn for t
Night Huntress reread in anticipation for Book 7 Up From the Grave release on 1/28/14

At Grave's End is the most intense one so far in the series running. Jeaniene Frost didn't pull any punches in delivering us some shocking revelation and surprises at every corner. Compare to the more lighthearted from the prior books, this time it was more gut wrenching and we have some epic battle scene that was full of gore. Ew.

Disappointing and unsatisfying...

Let me start by saying I LOVED the first two books of this series, and quickly deemed it my new favorite.
But most of the things that made the first two so fun to read seemed to be missing from this one; namely, the interactions between the characters.
The relationship between Cat and Bones was always the center of what made these books so good. It was fun, and it was hot. Most of that is missing here; you get some brief moments between them (and one very rushed p

4 Stars

I'm obviously in the minority but Cat and Bones's relationship is still not appealing to me. What little chemistry they had in the first two installments has fizzled out completely and now it seems like they are simply going through the motions. Moreover, it is difficult to summon up any emotional engagement with either Cat or Bones during the more angst ridden section of the book.

In contrast, the secondary characters have far more personality. Mencheres, Ian and Vlad are f
At last my effort of holding on to this series despite disliking the first two books has paid off.

Everything was done so right in this book!

My problem with Halfway to the Grave was that in spite of fantastic protagonists and plot developments, it turned out to be a huge disappointment by the end of it. Then,One Foot in the Grave' s fault was that it was predictable. So much of mumbo jumbo was pulled off and it took a very foreseen dramatic twist at the end. And that’s why I was hugely d
I didn't buy this book new & I'm glad. The first book showed a lot of promise, the second book didn't live up to even that forlorn hope & this book circled the drain. I don't think she can salvage this series now. I think 2 stars is generous.

She has a neat premise, a new take on vampires, ghouls & such. Unfortunately, her writing has gone downhill along with her plot, characterization & overall theme.

There was no doubt about how the story would play out. Her characters are too p
Action packed, but low in the romance/relationship sector; however, the writing and plot kept me on the edge of my seat with both humor and a constant state of turmoil. New characters were introduced--some very famous--and I hope Vlad gets more time in later books; sure liked him.

For people reading the series, At Grave's End is a "must read" because vital parts come to life (pun intended) as more elements of the supernatural/paranormal world open up. Some parts are particularly gory, too, so FYI
