Publisher's Summary

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership.

In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon, Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side...and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

Jeaniene Frost lives with her husband and their very spoiled dog in Florida. Although not a vampire herself, she confesses to having pale skin, wearing a lot of black, and sleeping in late whenever possible. And while she can't see ghosts, she loves to walk through old cemeteries. Jeaniene also loves poetry and animals but fears children and hates to cook. She is currently at work on the next novel in her best-selling Night Huntress series.

What the Critics Say

“Take one half-human/half-vampire female with serious anger and parental issues, add in a sexy ancient vampire with his own agenda, and you have the makings for a truly combustible series. Sign me up for the sequel!” (Romantic Times)

    "great series!"

    Well written & great narrator, this audiobook got me sucked into buying all the books in this series plus the 2 side novels (first drop of crimson & eternal kiss of darkness). I found it hard to hit the pause or only listen to them in my car. Now I have to wait for the next book in the series to be published in 8/2011. Well worth the credits.

    "Good Book"

    I was surprised to read all the negative reviews for this book. I liked it. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Cat and Bones. I wanted more of it. The book has a little of everything...action, romance, sex, violence, building sexual tension....to me, all ingredients for a good book.

    The narration was good. Cat's voice was perfect. Bones' voice..well, at first, I almost stopped listening because it seemed off and overly harsh but I keep listening. His voice softened as the book moves forward, either that or I just got use to it, maybe both because now I think this voice is perfect for Bones. The one voice that drove me nuts was her Mom's voice, like nails on a chalkboard.

    I decided to take a chance on Cat and Bones and I am glad I did. I liked this book and I look forward to the next book in the Night Huntress series.

    "Worth Getting Over the Accents"

    Yes, it's hard to get over the fact that the super hot male vampire lead sounds remarkably like Eliza Dootlittle from "My Fair Lady" and the super sexy vampire of "latin origins" has a french accent but I did get over it and even learned to laugh at (especialy when the side-kick cop in the second book "Juan" spoke with Scottish accent!) because the story is fun, and I love Cat's sassy grit. It was very hard to get into just how hot the chemistry was because the voice of Bones was just so "not sexy" but, in the end, I started to get a feel for him. The characters and story line are little immature but I give the author full credit for effort and humor. I downloaded the second one (One Foot in the Grave) because I could see where the author was heading and I wanted to give the story a chance... and because I really dig the main character.

    "undecided"

    I think the person narrator hurts the book. She sounds like she is 15 so that makes it difficult to listen to at first. Then I australian/english accent is strange sounding but the kicker is the shy guys. When she does the voice of a shy guy, they sound like they are feeble old men. In the next book there is another shy and attractive vet that sounds like he is 80 years old and about to die.

    "blade in female form."

    I enjoyed this book and cat was believable as the female blade half human and half vampire. I like seeing how she came to be and her love story with bones. who would not like bones at first I was put off by his accent but that was my own perception of what a english man would be, not lower end but upper class. but as I got into more of the story and some of the other characters, I could see that it was not do to the narrators execution. but my own perception. She also had other english voices which brings to light my idea of who and the background of each character. The story line was good and I was happy to meet all the other characters that joined her in the next book.this is a book for adults with the sexual pairings. but that too was good. if you like a little steam and passion mixed with you blood and sweet bits. these group books also reminded me of twilight with cat's introduction to the vampire world. it rules of conduct and hierarchy. but this first book is how cat came to meet bones and develop into a fighting force she is. good book. I will continue to download the other books of this series.

    "Best Book Mistake I Ever Made!"

    Young, 20-something Cat knows nothing about vampires except that she hates them. A night out equates to stalking and permanently killing the undead. Captured and forced into a partnership with one of her targets (Bones), she is mercilessly trained and tormented so her skills can be honed and used to help Bones collect bounty on his own targets. The story (saga) that emerges from the meeting of these two unlikely allies is hilarious, sweet, sultry and action (in many aspects of the word) -packed.

    I had a couple of "maybe's" saved in my wish list and ended up with this one by mistake. After I listened the first day, I thought I wouldn't finish it; two weeks later, I am on book 4! I'm not sure if I would enjoy the writing on a page, but I love listening to the way the reader portrays the characters! It took a while to get used to how young and immature Cat sounds, but stick with it for a while: If you aren't hooked when training begins, it's not the book for you!

    "Can't agree with average ratings..."

    I cannot say that I "loved" Halfway to the Grave. I found Kat to be a very immature heroine, and listening to the narrator attempting the "Bones" accent was very grating at times!

    But - after reading what the next book is about, I think that I may give #2 a shot and see if the Kat and the series grow up a bit!

    "Its ok"

    I thought this would be a little different from the other books of its genre, but its not. I just couldn't get into it.
