This book is amazing! It's full of action, humour and a (hot) love story. About everything a good Urban Fantasy needs for me. I just couln't stop reading (took me less than a day to finish it)...I just had to know how this would end. I laughed out loud and was biting my fingernails in suspence. I just instantly fell in love with the characters Cat and Bones (and their relationship) Cat is brought up believing all vampires are evil and now she kinda has to work with one. Than Bones trains Cat in te most (well how do I put this) 'interresting' way....It makes for some interresting scenes. I must say the ending wasn't what I expected, but I can appriciate that in a book You know not the standard ....and they lived happily ever after shit (just hate that)
Jeaniene Frost knows how to bring characters to life.
This book is a must read!
Just as the folowing novels in this serie: - One foot in the grave; - At graves end; - Destined for an early grave.
And the Night Huntress World serie: - Last drop of Crimson; - Eternal Kiss of Darkness.(less)

And a good first novel. You don't get burried under a lot of information. Kitty isn't your everage heroine, she maybe a werewolf but not the kickass one you would suspect. No she is just a girl in another kind of world and doen't quite know how to deal with it. Except in her radio show 'The midnight hour' where she gives advice to other supernaturals. And not only that in her show she gets 'discovered' and a lot af people know she is a werewolf and that they and vampires really excist. Which pisses some off. She even gets a werewolfhunter (for hire) after her. And she defenitly has some trouble in the pack. The only thing that gets her trough is her best friend TJ. Their relationship is really great. Just what you expect from best friends. Eventhough they are very different it just makes sense that they are friends.
The ending was quite unexpected for me but I liked it. It makes sure that Kitty gets to have some great new adventures in the big bad world.
I must admit that sometimes I found the "radio" a bit boring but that was mostly in the beginning. After the story got along it al fit together.
This book is fast written and doesn't linger to much on events and has some great action. Carrie Vaughn really wrote a great first novel and I for one can't wait to see what happens next to Kitty. 0 reacties(less)

The beginning is a little slow but after that it's funny and action-packed. Had trouble putting the book down because I wanted to know how it ended. So definitely worth it.(less)
