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.

“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)
Love Cat and Bones! Great characters and I think Bone's voice is perfect. If you read his character, the voice fits him like a glove. All these suave vampires with great melodic voices and then there is Bones. Tough, working class English but completely unique. Really sets him apart from Spade, Ian and Vlad, etc.
I started this book but only listened to parts of it because I knew the ending wasn't going to be happy. Yeah, I know they get back together in Book 2, but... Then I read the rest of the series, then the Night Huntress World series before coming back and finishing this one. Night Huntress and Night Huntress World is a series you need to read in order. The relationships built in the earlier books really set the stage for the later books.
Overall I love this series and have listened to them multiple times. There aren't many I can say that about.
I was looking for a new series because I can almost quote my old favorites. I am a big fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series so much that I went on to read everything ever written by Charlaine Harris. I honestly had low expectations of the Night Huntress Series but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. I love the relationships between the characters, Cat and Bones. (Bones reminds me of Spike from the Buffy TV shows.) The narration is very good and I bought the next 3 audiobooks within 3 days. I hate to say it but Cat makes Sookie look like a whiner and the heat between Cat and Bones rivals anything on True Blood (the HBO series based on Sookie Stackhouse books.) You get invested in Cat as the protagonist and fall in love with Bones for his tenderness and absolute devotion. This series is not all hugs and kisses though. Cat and Bones can kick some serious butt.
I accidentally came across this book by trolling the first book series sale. Glad I did. This book was not only a well weaved tale, but it was also hilarious in parts. And I do mean laugh out loud funny! I'm hooked. I'm ordering the second in the series and the rest of the books are on my Wish List. This book is well worth the credit or money you spend on it!
Bought this on first of series sale, first time even listening to this author and I was hooked. Promptly purchased each book in this series and started on "World" books as well. (Which I never do 'cause I'm usually a cheapskate!)I couldn't wait to hear more of these characters, their interations, and deepening relationships. This is a genre I enjoy but haven't been this excited about an author/series since Sherrilyn Kenyon's dark hunters!
I love vampire/ supernatural involved books, therfore I am so addicted to this series. At first the narrator bugged me a little but I grew to love her. She gives each character a unique voice and personality. These books are well written and they leave you wanting more. I hope audible gets the rest of them soon!!!
I am a newcomer to this series and I have really enjoyed it! Entertaining, interesting and action packed. The humor Bones brings to the story is great and the chemistry is perfect. This series is much better than Vampire Academy but based on some of the steamy scenes, I'd say for a bit older crowd. The only reason this is getting 4 stars instead of 5 is the narrator. She's a bit high piched and squeaky at times and sadly she doesn't do much for Bone's but his personality shines through her annoying narration.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this series. I have to admit, this book started a little slow for me, but once the action really started I was hooked. Yes, yes, I understand all the comments about Bones' Voice, but people need to understand that a true "Cockney" accent, really does sound like that. When you hear Tavia Gilbert do the other British voices (later books), you will understand how talented she really is. Plus there are spin-offs of this book/series. I am now a LOVER of all Jeaniene Frost books and devour them as soon as they are available. I have actually pre-ordered the next one in the series. TRUST me if you love a STRONG female lead with love and adventure all rolled into a great story, you will LOVE this book and all the books that follow. You will be hooked
I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.
Both Night Huntress and Night Huntress World are amazing! Read Night Huntress first!!! This is the first book. It was a little slow at first but once I got into the book, and the series...I couldn't stop...I was reading a book a day. I have a chronic ilness and am sick all the time. This series made me forget about that and escape into a world filled with love, danger, humor and a main character who kicks a$$!
This definitely has a Buffy (The Vampire Slayer) hooks up with Spike feel. The beginning seemed very childish, although the scene and topics weren't. Midway it did seem to get better. Narrator won't be on my favorite list but she's not on my avoid list either. Will give book 2 a chance to change my opinion.
What a fantastic audiobook for me to listen to whilst I was driving for 3.5 hours. It made my drive very enjoyable! I'm hoooked! I look forward to listening to the rest of the series. However, Bones accent is quite off-putting but not enough for me to stop listening to it.
