Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress #1)
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her fatherthe one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker...more
This book is the perfect fit to fill the Buffy-sized hole in my heart.
Cat is a part vamp/part human, super-strength, vampire-slaying goddess with eyes that glow green when she gets riled up. She has been slaying since the age of 16. Bones is her sleek-and-sexy, bleach blonde, British vampire sidekick who also slays vampires for kicks. And for the bounty. Together they form a kick-ass team who love to heat things up on the dance f...more
I've been pondering for far too long regarding this book and how I feel about it. In the beginning, I dug it. I mean, I dug it! Right? I did. I mean, yeah, the writing is shallow and quick, the characters are just shoved in your face and then taken away at the author's whim, but the dialogue and action are engaging, and it keeps you reading. That's good, right? Turns out, not always. Like road trips. They're awesome until someone blindfolds you and directs you right off a...more
I feel a little torn about this book. Can't say I didn't enjoy it in some way, but at the same time I can hardly say anything in its defense.
What I liked:
1) Spunky dialog.
2) Dirty talk.
3) Steamy hooking-up - Bones is a very generous, attentive and giving lover, if you know what I mean.
What I didn't like:
1) This is not urban fantasy, this is paranormal romance. The majority of the book is dedicated to flirting, snogging, hooking up, and love confessions.
2) Many complain that Bones is Sp...more
Catherine *Cat* Crawfield
is a half breed (half human/half vampire) and she is a badass ass kicking vampire slayer!! She is out for vengeance against her deadbeat vampire daddy and is taking it out on any vamp that crosses her path...that is until the smokin' hot vampire bounty hunter Bones captures her....
Crispin *Bones* Russell
is a sexy ass bounty hunter with an uh-mazing, sexy British accent...So freaking yummy!! I just wanted to get him and kiss him all over....more
The series starts out with the heroine, Catherine, who’s...more
Lots of laugh-out-loud fun.
Best dialogue I've read in a very long time. Brilliant!
Sexy vampires and a kick-ass heroine.
Do I need to point out that the paranormal genre is NOT my favorite? It doesn't matter - this author's writing style and fantastic sense of humor sucked me right in.
No need for me to write a review on this one since I am probably the last person on GR to finally read it, but I am posting a few of my favorite quotes ...
"Lucifer's bouncing balls, Kitten, not again!"...more
I know a review isn’t really necessary for this book since there are already so many raves for it and lots of Cat and Bones fans, so I’ll just use my review as a means for gushing over how much I loved it!
Bad-ass half human/half vampire Cat Crawfield, armed with her acerbic wit, bitchy attitude, flaming red hair, slut gear, thigh-high leather boots, and silver knives, stakes, and bullets, slays vampires with a gusto that makes Buffy look like a girl scout....more
Halfway to the Grave was a solid UF read. For me, UF is either a hit or miss with me. I either love it or hate it and I think with the Night Huntress series, I never really gave it a chance because I dropped it all those months ago. But sitting my ass down and reading it actually paid off in t...more
There's nothing better than a good UF with tons of romance on it. Don't you agree? And it gets even better because all the books in it are about the same couple so we get to know them really well. You will have to agree with me when it comes to Cat and Bones, there's just not better roma...more
Enjoyed the humor! A lot of laugh-out-loud moments and cute one-liners. :-) The h/h made a good team. Catherine Kathleen Crawford "Cat" was half vampire/human and due to her mother's prejudice for all vampires became...more
Thank you so much to my Street Corner Booker friend Lora for challenging me to start the Night Huntress series. She anticipated I would love the series, but I bet she never guessed I’d need a drool bib for Bones! Whoaza! I know this guy isn’t real, but I still need to say…. IS.HE.FOR.REAL? :O Pass the laminator, I’m updating my list. XD
There is so much I enjoyed about Halfway to the Grave, where to start? It’s funny, sensitive, full of action, and bad a$$ momen...more
This is one of my favorite series of all time. Meet Cat and Bones!
This is one of the best couples of all time! The love I have for this series... there are no words.
One word: Badass
Half vamp who tries to do the world justice by getting rid of all the evil vampires...
Two Words: Bigger Badass
He is the best leading man ever!! Even over Dimitri Belikov and Jericho Barrons.
He fell in love with Cat and never ever apologized for it! If you were talking to Bones it would kinda be like thi...more
I'm a little late jumping on this bandwagon but anyways...
I really enjoyed HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE and will definitely be reading the rest of this series in part because of the delicious hero Bones. He is absolutely fantastic and oh so sexy, reminding me on one level of Edward from Twilight in his unwavering love and protectiveness of Cat but of course...more
And... another series that I am officially OBSESSED with!
I had ever heard of this series, although I had heard the name "Bones" here and there from my good friend, Megan. She insisted that the audiobook of this was amazing (yeah, yeah, yeah, she was right, but don't tell her that... :P) and once I added it on here I couldn't believe how many people love this series, so that made me super curious. I now see what all the hoopla is about! The fact that this is an adult series is really...more
Just finished this one and cannot wait for the next. This had a bit of everything; humour, romance, vamps, suspense and a hot, hot, hot hero. Loved the whole premise of the book. Everytime I heard Bones' voice in my head it was with a real pommy accent so BIG well done to JF. So many others have gone before me raving about this series, I won't waffle on too long. Suffice to say, wonderful re...more
Loved this book!!
The story opened in the perfect way.
I loved every bit of the action and of course, it had one of my most favorite things in it-a kick ass, smart mouthed heroine.
I did not like Bones right away. But gradually, he became awesomer and awesomer.
Another thing which always tips the scales for me is good humor and this book had that down pat.
I also loved Spades and would want to read more about him and meet Ian.
There was no one big bad wolf till the very...more
I had heard so much about this series. I am wondering why I didn't read it sooner.
I absolutely loved this book. It captivated me from the first page. I could not put it down. It was fun, it was exciting, it was sexy. I fell in love with Bones. He struck me as an "anti-Edward." I loved Cat and her lethal vulnerability. I loved how their relationship developed.
So why am I not happy? Everything fell apart at the end. It switched from being a wonderful paranormal romance novel to one of those exahusting urban fantasy novels. One action scene after another until you lost track of what...more

Good grief!!! My original review for the book is below, but I decided to listen to the series in audio form and my bud, Sunny, told me that I should take a trip down memory lane and refresh myself with Book 1. I can't tell you how happy I am that I took her advice.
Not only is this book amazing but the narrator is out of this world. She truly brings this book alive and I adored every voice she came up with. And she's...more
This book reminded me somewhat of Sookie Stackhouse, but with much more action and violence. I had no idea before I started it that it was more humorous than dark; I was fooled by the dark colors in the cover I guess.
All in all I liked it and had a fine time listening to it. It didn't bore me at any time which is more than I can...more

WARNING!!! THIS IS A TOTALY FANGIRL REVIEW, MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS AND SURELY CONTAINS MASSIVE VISUAL AID THAT CAN AND WILL CAUSE BONERS IN GIRLS AND, POSSIBLY BOYS TOO. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!!!!!
The Plot - Is not that special, really. Girl is the result of a rape committed by a vamp. Mother resents her and she kills vamps so she can get back at her dad (that she never met). Meets a vamp and makes a deal with the devil. The plot is not what got me, really.
The Characters - I lov...more
