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 te...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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Was a good book and I continue to enjoy Bones and the secondary characters - Vlad/Dracula especially, and I'm now more intrigued than ever to read Mencheres' story ( Eternal Kiss of Darkness ). Cat, however, is still annoying to me; ever since the first book she's gotten on my nerves. Am also sick of Tate, as I know most readers were by the last book.
Cat continues to be unlikable to me, and I think it's a combination of several things. One of them is that I find her very hard to relate...more
Original review: 8/30/2009: At Grave's End was a great read and The Night Huntress is a truly excellent series. I absolutely love the relationship between Cat and Bones and Bones has quickly become one of my favorite male leads. He's funny, extremely loyal, and violent when it comes to protecting th...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
‘At Graves End’, the third installment in the Night Huntress series.
Cat and Bones are back working together doing what they do best: killing vampires. Their latest mission goes awry when Cat is recognized even with all of her disguises. To keep from putting her in constant danger the decision is made to put someone else on the front lines. The story continues with all the usual ‘Night Huntress’ craziness we’ve all come to expect: a vampire in a Chu...more
Another Night Huntress book I couldn't put down thanks to great characters and suspenseful plot. In this book Cat is facing a vicious millennia old witch who wants her dead. This time, though, Cat is with together with Bones and there is no way they are leaving each others' side, especially Bones who has to work on his over-protectiveness if he doesn't want to get his ass kicked by his beautiful wife. Just because they are together, though, doesn't mean everything is sunshine and rainbo...more
At Grave's End is the third book in the Night Huntress series and it was the most action packed installment thus far. The fight scenes were crazy, exciting, and pretty gory (view spoiler)[zombies, anyone?! (hide spoiler)]. Although there was plenty of excitement, it lacked the usual steamy excitement I've become accustomed to. I think chapter 32 of book #2 may have ruined me! :/Don't get me wrong, there is still some, but not as much as the...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
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
Spike ;) I mean Bones is just as perfect as ever.
James Marsters is MY Bones.
I could gush about Jeaniene Frosts Night Huntress books. They just get better and better. At Grave's End delivers as promised, it is intense, action packed. HOT! Humor filled, and heartbreaking. It didn't disappoint. We get to meet some great and not so great figures of importance. (view spoiler)[Good ol' Drac himself, just don't call him that. ;) (hide spoiler)].
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
I started this book on New Year's Eve and finished it today, New Years day, s...more
One of the things I liked best about this story is the introduction of Vlad Tapesh. (You almost feel bad for the guy. Every time he's introduced to someone they probably always end up exclaiming "You're Dracula?!" But No, he's not and he will thank you kindly if you never mention that name in his hearing again.)
I love Vlad and I really love that he and Bones didn't get along. So often in paranormal stories all the alpha heroes (or heroes who you KNOW will get the...more
EDIT: Prvotní nadšení, že zase čtu knihu od své oblíbené autorky vyprchalo, a já musím konstatovat, že je to podle mě zatím nejslabší díl z celé série... Ach jo... No co :D Na 4. díl se ale nehorázně těším ♥
At Grave's End...where to begin? When I was in the middle of this book, I was 99% sure I would rate this as four stars. But the surprise at the end made me go crazy insane! I was so shocked, I couldn't believe it! And this made me change my rating almost immediately.
The truth is, I really liked this book. But I didn't love it like I loved the second book. At least, I wasn't crazy about the first part of the book. Its the pacing. It kind of felt all over the place for me. It wasn't until the mid...more
Although Cat and Bones are back together in this book, I felt they were away from the other, either physically or mentally, more in this book than the previous two. It was like their jobs took them their separate ways more. Which is fine, they shouldn't be joined at the hip.
We got to learn about the vampires through Cat. We got to learn about Mancheres, Bones' grandsire and his history. Mencheres is married to the ancient Egyptian queen's - Cleopatra - daughter who is named after her mother. Mencheres and Patra have been estranged for so long but before they were, Mencheres had a vision of Bones...more

"What, did Anne Rice not return your calls, mate?" Vlad asked scathingly. "Jealousy is such an ugly trait.”
