Jane (PS) | 13454 comments Jeaniene Frost, born 1974, is an American fantasy/PNR author, well-known for her "Night Huntress" series and the "Night Huntress World" novels. She has also contributed to a number of anthologies.

The Night Huntress Series: The author came up with the idea for the Night Huntress series from a dream. "In my dream, I saw a man and a woman arguing. Somehow I knew the woman was a half-vampire, the man was a full vampire, and they were arguing because he was angry that she'd left him." As of 9/10/11 there are a total of nine books planned for the series.

A New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, foreign rights for her novels have sold to nineteen different countries. Frost lives in North Carolina with her husband Matthew. Aside from writing, she enjoys reading, poetry, watching movies with her husband, exploring old cemeteries, spelunking and traveling by car. Airplanes, children, and cook books frighten her.

Jeaniene's GR page is here: Jeaniene Frost

Anna's Herding Cats (herdingcats-burningsoup) Heh. Yep Jane I fall into the I've read all of her books category. Can we use short stories? Those are the only ones I have left.


message 5: by MountainKat, Moderator (new)

MountainKat | 8513 comments I'm in and I am a great big A!! I have no idea what I'm going to read, or reread, since I'm current on her books. I think there might be s short story or two I haven't read yet...

Sure - short stories are fine :)


message 7: by Jane (PS), Moderator (last edited Jul 21, 2012 07:12PM) (new)

Jane (PS) | 13454 comments I still have a heap of her stories to read, but I realise that a lot of RRRC members have probably read her full list! What a nice problem for Jeaniene to have :)

I'm in (naturally) and I'm an A :)

Jim son of Jim (formerly PhotoJim) (Jim_formerly_Photojim) | 5294 comments I'm an A. But I refuse to say the category title.

Edit: I'll be reading Vlad's story.


message 9: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 7316 comments awww c'mon jim!!! lol!!

i'm a high B, low A right now...i'm going to read At Grave's End

i think i'm one of the few that hasn't read the whole series...


Anna's Herding Cats (herdingcats-burningsoup) Good deal. I'm so an A. I'm going to start on her short stories and read Reckoning (NightHuntress 0.5)

Not sure why but I can't get her books to come up in the search to add the cover.

There is a bug right now that is messing with the search engine - so annoying!


Anna's Herding Cats (herdingcats-burningsoup) Ah thanks Fran good to know I wasn't having a moment after all. I kept thinking I was spelling her name wrong and would go check and try again. The only thing coming up were two books in another language.


message 14: by Jane (PS), Moderator (new)

Jane (PS) | 13454 comments Ah - I saw that, HC. But I then had a go, and it all worked OK for me :)


message 15: by Erin (new)

Erin (Erin-B) | 790 comments Well, I was about to start Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost for one of my July challenges, but I thinkI'll hold off and do this challenge instead. I'm an A.


message 16: by ~KarenH~, Moderator (new)

~KarenH~ | 3998 comments I'm a huge "A", and I'm also current except for a short or two. I'll have to see what I can find, but I'll definitely be reading something, even if it's a reread!


message 17: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 3931 comments I'm definitely an A. I've only got short stories left as well. I'll read both and that will equal a full book. LOL.

So - Reckoning in Unbound (Dark Days, #0.5; Night Huntress, #0.5; Signs of the Zodiac, #0.5; The Hollows, #7.5) by Kim Harrison and Night's Darkest Embrace in Haunted by Your Touch (Doomsday Brethren #3.5, Moon Chasers, #4.5) by Jeaniene Frost


message 18: by Skandia (new)

Skandia (SFGirl) | 933 comments I just read the first Night Huntress book in the beginning of July and it was pretty good but little too much graphic violence for my taste.
I think I'm B+ and will continue with the series.
I will read One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, #2) by Jeaniene Frost


message 19: by Irina (new)

Irina (reetu_416) | 457 comments I'm not a big fan but I like her work and will be willing to read another one. So i guess I am somewhat B and I'll be reading Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost


message 20: by Samantha (new)

Samantha | 923 comments I'm in. I'm an A and I'll be reading First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, #1) by Jeaniene Frost


message 21: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 1934 comments Well, I was going to read this one later - but I will join in this month. I am a B . I've read one of her books and liked it. So I will read One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, #2) by Jeaniene Frost.


message 22: by Katharina (new)

Katharina | 780 comments Think I'll skip this one. Not my fave genre and it looks like all her books are part of a series.


message 23: by Joann (new)

Joann | 973 comments Not sure what I'll read yet, but I'm an A.


message 24: by KarenF (new)

KarenF (CleoCleveland) | 1099 comments I'm an A. I'll read Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost since I kinda can't believe I haven't read it yet.


message 25: by Amanda (last edited Jul 22, 2012 06:40PM) (new)

Amanda (shortie357) | 103 comments I"m a C. I am going to be reading the first book in the Night Huntress series Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) by Jeaniene Frost.

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 496 comments I'm in! I'm an A! I read her first book yesterday and am reading the 2nd today LOL I'm not sure what I'll be reading cause I just don't know how quickly I can get through my last 2 books for July challenges and get back to this series :)

message 31: by Nicola (new)

Nicola | 644 comments After all that I am afraid to admit I have never read her.

I will see what my library has


message 32: by Fran, Moderator (last edited Jul 24, 2012 07:16AM) (new)

Fran | 9070 comments I am a C. It looks like Jeaniene has a short story in this anthology that doesn't seem to be related to her series. I am going to read this one-

Under Her Skin by Jeaniene Frost


Tina "IRead2Escape" (tinar1121) | 1095 comments I am an A++++++. Love the Night Huntress, Night Huntress World and Night Prince series. Night Huntress is my favorite series ever, which is saying a lot since PNR is not my favorite genre. I didn't realize this was coming or I would have held off on Vlad for a couple more weeks.

Since I have read all of the books, except the anthologies I think I will read Happily Never After (Night Huntress, #1.5) by Jeaniene Frost.


message 34: by Ann (Noumena12) (new)

Ann (Noumena12) (noumena12) | 126 comments I'm in. I've never heard of this author so I'm a C - Totally new to this author. Will see how I like it. I haven't been reading much paranormal romance or fantasy lately.

CORRECTION: Looks like I've read a couple of anthologies that contained stories from this author. But they certainly weren't memorable.

Nicola, in my opinion it would be best to start at the beginning, Halfway to the Grave. I think it matters more in this series. Not sure about the shorts though.


message 36: by Nicola (new)

Nicola | 644 comments Thanks MountainKat - I will look for that one then.


message 37: by Ceej (new)

Ceej (drqangel) | 1015 comments I'm in. I'm a C. I'll read Halfway to the Grave


message 38: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1214 comments I'm an A.
I'll read either First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, #1) by Jeaniene Frost or Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost.


message 39: by Roxy (new)

Roxy (RoxyM) | 208 comments I'm in!!

I'm an A: Bones can suck my blood.

I will probably read Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost or Reckoning (Night Huntress, #0.5) by Jeaniene Frost
