Preview — At Grave's End by Jeaniene Frost
At Grave's End (Night Huntress #3)
Some things won't stay buried . . . at 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...more
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...more
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
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...more
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...more
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...more
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:...more
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...more
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...more
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...more
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...more
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...more
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...more
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.
*Tate is willing to protect Cat eve...more
Cat is her kick-ass self, showing she's got as much brains as brawn....more
Mother of sweet baby rabbits I f*cking love Bones and Cat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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...more
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...more
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...more
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.
Bones, my favorite vamp to date was a former-human-gigolo-turned-vampire-hitman. H...more
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...more
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...more
The Night Huntress series might be good in the romance department but there's a general lack of story line and fleshing out of everybody except the hero and heroine. Actually I think even Bones is pretty...more
My favorite things about this book:
- Bones, of course. Still incredibly hot and sexy, and now even more powerful than before.
- Cat. I like her attitude overall. She's not a wishy-washy female lead. She sees what needs to be done and does it. She does not let emotions interfere with her actions.
-Cat's mom (Justina). This book shows a whole new side of her. I was laughing so hard reading the secti...more
The story between Bones and Cat definitely deepened. Lots of good action, drama and twists. I've got to say, there is a couple of scenes that left me in tears.
There were alot of character developements. I got to know more of Tate, Vlad, Ian, Mencheres, and even Justina. Spade, Denise and Randy's story also unfolds here.
There is a ch 32!!! Though it wasn't as wild, the PASSION was just as HOT. This chapter again...more
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...more
Spoilers, Spoilers, Spoilers
I only gave it 4 stars for one big reason-all throughout the book, whenever it would come time to choose sides, the other vampires would say something like "Is all-out war really worth a woman's hurt pride?"
I took it to mean, that since Max never raped Cat's mom, he was just an all-around asshat, that no one took his threat seriously. So when he sliced an...more
AT GRAVES END is the 3rd addition to the Night Huntress series and damn I’ve missed me some Bones. He remains one of my favourite literary boyfriends even though this particular instalment never really grabbed me. If you’re a fan of non-stop action and tons of bloodshed you’ll love this one but for me it was just too much.
With a different battle waging and new characters introduced every couple of pages I had a hard time gett...more
This series is still so much fun. Cat continued to put me in fits of behind-the-hand-giggles, and Bones...well, he just had me melting over and over and over!!!
I was constantly guessing who was good, and who was bad. Loves me some mystery to me stories, I do!!! And the addition of Dracula [Vlad] and Cleopatra's daughter. Very clever...♥ Even though at the near end, I did a bit of this...
