Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.
Gregor believes Cat is his and won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced … even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

“Frost’s dazzling blend of urban fantasy action and passionate relationships makes her a true phenomenon.” (Romantic Times)
“Destined for an Early Grave holds big changes and many surprises for fans of the series, and should not be missed.” (Darque Reviews)
“Sexy, nonstop thrills.” (Melissa Marr, New York Times best-selling author)
This is one of my favorite series I have read so far. I thought Rachel Morgan, the Hollows was my favorite until I read this series..Worth every credit or dollar on all books in this series including the spinoff books. Love Tavia Gilbert.
with this narrarator, definitely. She brings each character to life. I don't think I would have had the same impression of Bones without her! I never say that about a narrarator.
yes! Couldn't turn it off!
Hola, soy India!
Yes I would recommend this book. Its chalk full of sex, jealousy, passion, love, and the word bitch. :)
How Bones and Cat just cant catch a break.
I dont have a favorite scene.
I giggled here and there.
Favorite reads are urban fantasies featuring adults, with a firm twist of tasteful erotica, shaken well with plenty of humor & wit over ice.
By all means!
The relationships feel authentic. The sex is very erotic without being ugly or pornographic. True love actually seems to have a real chance of triumphing.
She's absolutely amazing!! Truly brings the story to life. And, I think I'm actually falling into major crush with her Crispin voice (awkward!). Everytime I hear him...um, her...say "ki-en", I have a little thrill ;). She quite expert at knowing how to deliver a funny line, which I also love about this series and the Stackhouse series, it's ability to make me laugh out loud every so often.
Too many to list.
This book's storyline is like the cigarette to its writing and narrations orgasm ...(that is if I smoked anymore). Was completely satisfied when the book was finished and ready to order the next one right away. In the past mainly a mystery reader, I'm usually happier with quirky characters, a few bodies, interesting plot twists and just leave out any romance thank you; but I have to say, I'm being converted to this genre with books like this one. I love it when a writer doesn't leave you wishing you'd never picked up the darned book and then spent 20+ hrs with it. This one certainly didn't. Thank you so much Jeniene Frost! You have earned my undying loyalty.... Please keep it up..PJ
Vampires, WereWolves, Westerns, Fae...I love all the bloody weird!
I loved, loved when Bones had finally reached his limit with Cat going off and doing what she wanted because she was always trying to save him. And it never ended well or could have ended better is she slowed down and realize she is not everyone's savior. He's a vamp and has been for such a long time, I am sure he knows what he is doing and always has some kind of plan. But I guess being a vamp and using communication is something that bones needs to work on as well when he is dealing with a human with sass and balls! She isn't some kept pet that is just gonna sit around and wait for him to save the day. She's the super hero too! I love them together! Butting heads with hot passion and deep love all the way through.
Bones. When he went off his rocker after Cat left and how crazy I can only imagine he was feeling when he was playing that piano so nice and calmly and then to have it fly across the room. I felt every bit of that emotion. This scene made me yearn for a life action film or tv show even more!
Yes...I was excited all the way through.
Next book will have some work cut out for it to get me to this type of excitement again! But I'm sure Frost can do it.
I really enjoyed immersing myself into this world of love, action, humour and heartbreak.
This book has so many memorable moments it's hard to choose from....but I'd say I couldn't stop laughing in the scene where Kat stuffed Bones into the closest...
I have listened to all of
I'm a reader not a writer and my imagination is lacking....so I'll have to pass on this one.
This series is a must read/listen it'll make you laugh, cry, sigh and simply crave.
I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.
loved it great story i would listen to it again
loved it great story i would listen to it again
Almost a year ago, I had amassed credits on my account and found a few books to use them up and close my account. One of them was the first book in this series. My 17-year old daughter and I listened to that book late this summer while traveling and I had to rejoin Audible just to get the entire series. The sex scenes can be a bit much, but that would be my only complaint. This series is addictive. We blasted through 5 books in a few weeks and were anxiously awaiting the next credits.
The story: The characters are believable and engaging. They are dynamic. The plots are interesting and fast-moving with just enough twists to keep a sharp mind attentive. The sex scenes are believable and fairly graphic (for my 17-year old, but we openly discuss such things so I was okay with it.) One big caveat: Go to her website to get the reading order. I believe that after book 3, you need to switch to the "Night Huntress World" series before reading books 4 and 5. Double check that, I'm going from memory.
The performance: The reader was FANTASTIC. She really brought the characters to life. She made the action scenes and scenes with emotion really shine. I've since gone looking for other things that she reads.
If another installment of this series came available, it would jump to the top of my wish list.
Audio Addict! Usually listening to History these days. Love Will Durant most of all authors!
I'm a huge Jeaniene Frost fan. Even more, I am crazy for Mac and Bones.
This was a disappointing book, though. There was less romance in the last book, but it was an enthralling, moving plot.
This book has a totally random story. No spoilers here. So there's not a lot I can say to explain my rating. There is far less romance and affection between cat and bones. Maybe readers will say that's how marriage is, but there were several ways to create tension with the characters (I can think of three great ways off top of my head) without resorting to the extremes in this book.
I found myself too upset to pay attention to the plot. And the editor did a poor job, as many meaningless scenes lagged on, frustrating me because cat and bones relationship between cat and bones is in serious jeopardy most of the novel. And they fight the rest of the time when they are together.
This is not the best of the series.
I still don't know what the true nature of cat and bones' relationship is according to vampire law.
