Recommended for: fans of Cat and Bones, the Night Huntress series
Read in December, 2009 — I own a copy

I enjoyed continuation of the Night Huntress. With a broad brush stoke the author painted the world crimson and weighted the characters down with more emotion than the previous 3 books!

Cat is being tormented with nightmares and when she finds out why, she gets mad. She wants to get even but, of course, Bones want to protect her. Some of the the strong secondary characters are well played. I especially liked appearances made by Vlad and Annette [Anette had some GREAT lol lines:]. The dynamic[s:] of Bones and Cat relationship are as sharply defined as a razor's edge. I found their byplay more entertaining than the plot. But the plot was interesting and a great departure from the other books thus far. I guarantee Huntress fans will be delighted and drawn into this story as well.

Jeaniene Frost once again delivers a worthy addition to the Night Huntress world. I wasn't bowled over by the story but thinking back Cat and Bones as a couple left an indelible mark few fictional romance characters' have been able to do [they don't live and breath, so well, hehe:]. So the 3 star rating I was determined to give it a[without review:] now becomes a strong 4.5. I'd only add perhaps an exploration to the hints of 'what if' between secondary characters. Ah. Maybe in the next book.
