Now I know why this series is so massively popular!

I have a bit of a confession to make before I talk about this book. First off, I wasn’t too keen on the Night Huntress thing when I started the series earlier this year. In fact, I hated Cat and her beliefs about vampires and wasn’t that enamoured by Bones in the previous three books. That being said, I was skeptical going into this book because I was hoping and praying that this one would capture my attention. Going into this, my favourite book was One Grave at a Time, but after reading Destined to an Early Grave, I love this one more!

I know Frost fans hated the fighting between Cat and Bones, but for some odd reason I revelled in it. No, I didn’t laugh evilly every time they fought, but I thought that Frost did a great job of showing the ups and downs of a relationship. Not only did this make me devour the pages, but I felt that it strengthened Cat and Bones’s relationship in a much better way than if they were frolicking in a field with butterflies and roses and unicorns.

Most of the time, Bones and Cat fought because of misunderstandings. Added onto that is the threat of Gregor, a powerful and really old vampire known as the Dreamsnatcher who claims that Cat is his wife. And you know the deal with vampires....they always claim what is theirs.

I loved seeing Bones’s jealous and of course, wished that it was aimed at me and not Cat. But, hey what can you do? It’s fiction! I can do anything I want.

This book was great! And now I can truly say that I’m a Frost fan because guess who is my wallpaper at the moment! You guessed it, BONES!!! That man does bad things to me.

Tay Faine Fantastic review. I'm about to read the fourth book. One question.. I'll still read it.. I'm aware they spent time apart... During those times apart did Bones sleep with anyone? I keep seeing people call him a man whore in their reviews! LOL


Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog) Oh god, Tay. To be honest, I've read this book so long ago that I can't remember the details. My first instinct would to reply and say no though. But again, it's been such a long time I could be wrong. I know that doesn't exactly reassure you, lol sorry!
