{Read my review of Halfway to the Grave}

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She’s still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again.

 Halfway to the Grave, the first book in the Night Huntress series was on my radar for a really long time. I kept hearing a lot of things about Cat and Bones and how amazing they were, so I was curious. When I finally got around to reading it earlier this year, I have to admit I was a bit disappointed. I didn’t see what so great about the pair, and I didn’t get why girls obsessed and swooned over Bones. I decided to give the series a fair shot and read One Foot in the Grave…and I am so glad I did.

One Foot in the Grave was funny, scary, sexy, action-packed, gruesome, and just overall amazing. I was finally able to understand the appeal of Bones, and I fell hard for him and Cat as a couple. Picking up four years after where Halfway to the Grave left off, One Foot in the Grave saw Cat as a changed woman. Now leading a team of government paranormal hunters, Cat’s as kick-ass as ever, and she has a great team of guys watching her back and helping her fight the undead.

I found myself really getting attached to not only Cat and Bones, but the secondary characters as well. All the characters were well fleshed out, and it was easy to get invested in their lives. Throughout the book, I laughed, I cried, I cringed (Frost really doesn't shy away from the gory details). There were so many secrets and revelations, twists and turns...and things between Cat and Bones were so sexy it practically had me gasping. *fans self*

It’s hard to believe I ever doubted this series. One Foot in the Grave is a phenomenal second book in a series I can’t wait to devour. I am now proud to call myself a Night Huntress fan!

  1. I'm dying to check out this series and may put the first book on my Christmas wishlist. :D As much as I like YA and NA, my background is in paranormal and urban fantasy and it's fun to wander in that direction every now and then.

  2. Yes!!! I love this series. :) I've only read the first three books but I keep looking at the next two saying that I should read them ... I need more Cat and Bones!

    When it comes to paranormal romance, these books are definitely the best. :)
