So, I have to admit that I picked this one up because the picture of Cat on the cover reminded me of my favorite character on True Blood (Jessica Hamby). I love red heads and vampires are sexy... so a hot red headed vampire.. drool.
I know, I know.. not exactly the best way to pick a book, but in this case it paid off.
Cat is believable and real as she shifts from awkward self-consciousness to kicking ass and back again. Her snark had me cracking up throughout the book.
Bones (who I think is very similar to Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is charming, strong and witty.
The story-line is a fantastic mix of supernatural action, suspense, romance and sex that keeps you interested from cover to cover.
I'm definitely going to give the rest of the series a listen.
I've listened to quite a few audiobook series in the vampire genre and hands down Night Huntress is the best. The content and writing are definitely more adult than the Twilight and House of Night series. It's even steamier than the Blood Ties series. The chemistry between Cat and Bones is beyond electric and the action left me on the edge of my seat. Tavia Gilbert's wonderful narration does Jeaniene Frost's brilliant writing much justice. This was I ride I never wanted to end!
Does exactly what books should, in my opinion. Takes you away to a world of fantasy.
Bones, of course!
Love Bones but oh boy, Tavia Gilbert makes him sound like a deranged wicked witch from some children's story. Had to use all my imagination to picture him as the forceful sex god he is suppose to be. Will definitely be reading the next one and pass on the audio version.
Found it relaxing, enjoyable reading. No deep emotional moments, but then I haven't quite finished yet,
Love audio books, but the voice has to suit the character.
Yes, its just the vampiric fix any vamp fan could hope for.
I almost did, but the trip was over. And I had to get out of the car.
The build of the characters with Bones and Cat. They really are complex characters and as you get to know them you get to understand their reasoning.
Cat. I feel like I've been in her place a few times and she's a great relatable character - even though it's a fantasy genre.
Bones. The accent threw me off at first, but now I can't imagine anything else for him.
The humor Bones had and a few of Cats bone headed reactions made me laugh.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
The way Catherine Crawfield weaves the story to make it almose like a personal account of a very lonely girl who sees the brass ring and rides the Carousel until she catchs it.
The way Jeanine Frost writes is beyond compare with her detail toward each character and the way she brings them to life. I tried to listen to Halfway to the Grave in one sitting and then couldn't wait for the next installment. I'm just sorry that Ms.Frost quit writing about Cat and Bones, branching off to Vlad. I really enjoyed them.
Definately wanted to listen to it all in one sitting and looked forward to the next in the series.

The book itself is not so bad, but that awful Bristish/Aussie accent or whatever it is was nothing more than unbearable.
This was a fun book and I couldn't wait to get back in my car and listen to more. Kept me very interested and many parts made me laugh. Even though its about vampires and such I just loved it. Wondering if there is a sequel to it. I don't like how it ended. hahaha
I don't know if the author was picturing a Cockney accent when she wrote the character to be British, but I will assume that she was not. While the characters are compelling and well done, and I loved the narrator when she was not doing the horrific accent, I had more trouble than I would have thought getting into the book because the accent was just wrong, it was also a really badly done accent....think Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins! Terrible! It's too bad because other than that, the narrator has a lovely voice and great acting skills, I just cringed every time Bones had to speak. I will read the other books myself so that I can get the terrible accent out of my head!!!! If you want to make a sexy character, that is just not the English accent to use :).
A great start to a new series
I guess Kat if i had to choose
Great book beginning to end
It's the kind of book that can make u do both
