One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress #2)
You can run from the grave, but you can't hide . . .
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Well, the theme and word for the day is buttsecks.
As in: I was innocently reading One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost when the two main characters suddenly had buttsecks.
Now, I'm a shameless, wanton hussy with super magical slut powers, just like any other girl, but some thin...more
WOW...just WOW! I loved, loved, loved this book! Cat and Bones are back with bite in One Foot in the Grave, and as amazing as the first book was, this one’s even better.
Cat’s kick-ass vampire slaying is ramped up much higher this go round, and we also get a nice appetizingly, mouth-wateringly luscious, juicy Bones fix that had me melting like an ice cream cone on a hot summer day...Y-U-M! There’s lots of fast paced, high-octane action, witty laugh-out-lou...more
The plot moves smoothly, the writing is sharper and wittier than the first book, there is oodles of action, the love scenes left me shaking. Literally. The author writes a particular love scene that is very original and hotter than Hades. I've never read anything like it before!
Kudos to Jeaniene Frost for taking a chance and starting this book four years later. Most books in a sequel take place one right on top of the other, but...more
Yep, this book is that good! I still maintain that the trashcan came out of nowhere... ;)
One Foot in the Grave begins four years after book #1, Halfway to the Grave ends. Cat is working for a secret part of the government being a badass ass, killing vampires everyday, you know, the ushe... Things are pretty rocky with Bones & the story begins with us not knowing how/...more
♥♥♥ 4 "HOLY CHAPTER 32" STARS ♥♥♥
“This isn’t going to be easy,” I grumbled as we headed toward the exit.
Bones shrugged. “Nothing worthwhile ever is.”
I couldn't wait to start this one! I had been told that Chapter 32 would blow my mind! And it did! I seriously want Bones so bad!
It's been four years, that right FOUR years (I was surprised myself), since Cat left Bones to become a secret agent for the government that deals with paranormal cases. By now, every...more
This book didn't make me smile. This book made me want to kick Cat in the face.
I should mention that I'm biased against Mega-Alpha Females...more
I was really disappointed in this second book in the Night Huntress series.
The first book was wonderful. Witty dialogue, a lot of tough action and of course: Cat and Bones together (hot hot hot). We saw Cat being transformed from a shy but determined amateur to a sexy vixen vampire huntress. I loved Bones, I loved Cat and I loved them together.
Four years later, Cat is in charge of a special task force dealing with undead felons. She has a busy work life, her col...more
This seconds installment starts 4,5 years after the end of the first book. Cat is working with the government killing vampires and trying to move on with her life after having left Bones behind, because she believed they would never had any chance of a future together.
But destiny cross both of their paths again and between her vengeance and a new war against a powerful vampire, old feelings that never really got away are bound to return.
I liked this book even more than the fir...more
The second book in the Night Huntress series is a winner. My second time reading this book, and it was just as awesome as ever. Cat and Bones are back in a big way, and this is a series not be missed. This book picks up where the first one left us without Bones, and Cat wallowing in all her self-pity, thus causing my Bones pain.
Well he is back with his “Hallo, Kitten” and it gives tingles to the spine. Give a dog a bone already, because I am would pull out s...more
Gah… This was just all kinds of ways good, the question here is why did I leave the delicious and uber sexy Bones sitting on my TBR shelf for so long? I mean I already knew this was going to be great, I figured Cat was going to kick some major ass and I’d heard all kinds of rumours about the infamous chapter 32 So why the wait?? I just don’t have an answer. Anyways my thanks to SheSwitches...more
I really really enjoyed this book but I just can't quite bring myself to award it 5 stars when you compare it to, say, Margaret Atwood's genius in The Handmaid's Tale or the deeply entwined mystery/romance/mythology of Darkfever and the rest of the Fever series. This is an easy-to-read addictive series with a heroine who is likeable, brave (without being unrealistic...more
Yes, I like Cat and Bones. But unlike with the first book in this paranormal romance series, I found myself skimming quite a lot with this second one.
I'm thinking the problem is probably more with me, and less with this story. This is because what I really wanted was the new book in Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series, which is supposed to be released on July 29. IMO, fans of the first book in Frost's Night Huntress series should be plenty satisfied wit...more
I personally would not call this series PR, I would call it Urban Fantasy, and however after a peek at the library sticker on the spine of my book, I see that it says 'horror'. Hmm. I would say this is not really ‘horror’, but what do I know?
I have to acknowledge 'the scene' or I know I will get jumped here at GR (haha). There are two love scene...more
For an author it’s always hard to pen down a sequel that equals or better to the first book in the series if that first book is amazing. Frost has not trouble with that with One Foot in the Grave, this book doesn’t hinder or drag down the awesome story of Cat and Bones bu...more
In this second book "One Foot in the Grave", Cat's reunited with her sexy and mysterious vamp lover, Bones, after four long years. She still loves him, but is sure their relationship can't work. However, Bones isn't about to let her go again and he has some pretty nifty skills, and secrets, that jus...more
Yep...The second book is even better! I am so happy I started this series. They are truly addictive! I just need more and more.
It’s been four years since Cat decided to work for the government. Four year without the love of her life. She is doing pretty good- leads a team of trained professionals, has a home and her mother is safe (which is not a great thing if you ask me).
“I’d only call my mother if I wanted last-minute motivation to jump off a bridge.”
Cat tries to move...more
While I was reading this book I found myself wondering how I ever let this series get away from me for so many months!! Cat and Bones are an EPIC couple and this story didn't let me down!
There are already SO many fabulous reviews of this book so I probably won't have anything really new to add, but I will say that I can't remember the last time I had so much fun reading an urban fantasy book. Some of the one-liners were so witty and perfect that I wanted to...more
Then I finished this second book in the series and I was like this:
More of the same as the first book, except it doesn't have a "Noooooo" ending. Some crazy things happen in One Foot in the Grave, some of them of the soap-opera variety, but I enjoyed it and it was a fun ride.
I loved the first book in this series, Halfway to the Grave , and the only thing marring my enjoyment was how it ended. I was therefore anxious to see what would happen in Book 2 and was already upset, having read reviews and knowing this book starts four years later. It ended up not living to its predecessor for me, but I'm still a Bones addict so will be continuing with the series to the end, or until Cat becomes so annoying that she manages to outweigh the perfection that is Bones...more
The beginning was pretty slow for me. I had no real interest in the life she had carved out for herself. I was actually really surprised that she became friends with them. You wer...more
I didnt think I could fall for another vampire but I found myself HELPLESSLY IN LOVE wih BONES.
And I thought, I hated Cat but prove to be a kick ass heroine and by the end of the book... I also fell in like with her.
Okay. I still hate herbecause shes the lucky one who ends up with my Bones, not me. :/
Ch 32 proved to be the most erotic chapter I've ever read! And my oh my *fanning myself, blushing* it wassss HAAAWWWWWWWTTT! Like realllly steaming hot!!!
I really would...more
This story starts 4 years after the ending of its predecessor, Bones is nowhere in sight and Cat is now special agent Cristine RUSSELL, yes she did take the last name of the once human Bones.
“Miss. Cristine Russell.” That was the name I went under now, another tribute to my lost love, since Bones’s human name had been Crispin Russell. My sentimental curse would be the end of me.”
Cat is fighting the rogue undead, as well as trying to move on with her life the best way she can, without B...more
The second book in the Night Huntress series was just as action packed, fun filled, and hot and steamy as the first. I was a bit worried at first having Cat without Bones, but I figured he would not be able to stay away for long – although four years! What was he thinking? That was definitely...more
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series and also Frost's Night Huntress World. Bring on Vlad!
