Publisher's Summary

You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. 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 him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick 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 she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever and that Bones won't let her get away again.

Jeaniene Frost, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, 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. She also loves poetry and animals, but fears children and hates to cook.

Love in vein: listen to another Night Huntress novel.

What the Critics Say

“Proving that her first book was no fluke, Frost ratchets up the action and stirs up the suspense big time in her second Night Huntress novel. That said, it's the sizzling passion of her star-crossed lovers that really makes this book a genuine keeper!” (Romantic Times)

“This series is only getting better…between the exciting action scenes and the rekindled romance between Cat and Bones, I did not put this one down until the last page.” (Coffee Time Romance)

    "It's a good book, but there is too much crazy sex"

    It's a pretty good book, the series has been fairly entertaining so far. I think there is just too much crazy sex in it. I can deal with some sex, but really, graphic anneal sex is definitely pushing it too far.

    I wish books had to be rated like movies do. What if a young teenager purchased this book?

    The book is lacking depth, but it's entertaining... 3.5 stars

    "'Eh...can't get there!"

    I wasn't too thrilled with book one...but for $15 I had to try book two...I can't justify spending a credit for a $15 book! Then I found that the actual e-book is only $5...should have known!

    So, in short, worth the $5 for the e-book...can't see myself getting any more of these on Audio. Not worth a credit...because it's only $15...and not worth $15....so that leaves me moving on!

    "couldn't even finish"

    The narrators voice gets irritating very quickly. The story is very weak and cheesy. Richelle Mead's books are much better. I thought I would try this series will I was waiting for another Mead book to come out. Big disappointment and waste of money.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    Story
    "Chick lit or cheap erotica"

    While the first book in this series was surprisingly promising, I found Jeanine Frost's "One Foot in the Grave" quite disappointing. Cat, the main character and half vampire, is more worried about her intimate moments with her vampire boyfriend, than really helping the story to get along. If really think that cheap cliches rules the book. At places the story becomes so predictable, that you feel that you could've written it yourself. If intimate moments are not described in vivid language, unnecessary swearwords helps the characters share their emotions, making you wonder if the English language is so shallow that only certain words can be used to describe a whole range of emotions. I really don't think that I will listen to the next book.

    Story
    "Great series. Worth every credit."

    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.

    Story
    "Predictable and Annoying at Times"

    These books do have their entertaining moments so I'll stick with 3 stars even though I'm sorely tempted to give this one 2. I was just sooooooo annoyed by soooooo many of the situations in this book and how this book ended that it left a bad taste in my mouth. Not even my favorite character from the first book, Bones, could save this one for me.

    What I've decided I dislike about this series is that the drama feels overwhelmingly manufactured. You could argue that all fictional drama is technically manufactured, but some of it happens more organically than others. When a story and its characters are done well, the behavior of the characters is believable and understandable and the story/drama unfolds naturally around them. But that's not what happens in these books.

    In the Night Huntress books, the supposedly smart characters do stupid thing after stupid thing and it makes the rest of the story completely predictable and for me, annoying. The first book was like this too, but there was a distinct possibility that the second book would improve upon what the first lacked so I decided to give this book a shot. My hope was that all of that manufactured stuff was done in the first book and that Frost could hit her stride, building on the foundation of the first book. But instead, it was more of the same. More stupid, Cat, doing and saying stupid things. More happenstance that wasn't happenstance at all because it was such a clear set-up for other parts of the story. So painfully predictable that I basically stopped listening for the last little bit of the book. I didn't really care what happened. I just wanted it to be over.

    Audiobook review: I didn't mind her voice as much in this book when it came to Cat. I guess maybe now I was used to it. But this book made it blindingly clear that Tavia Gilbert is terrible at accents. In the first book, I didn't love her version of Bones' accent. It was really cockney and I didn't imagine that's what the author intended when she wrote that character (at least, it's not how he would have sounded in my head had I been reading this book as opposed to listening to it). Yet somehow, I was able to look past it. But in this book, she adds on Juan and good God, that was just awful. It actually bordered on insulting. Steer clear of the accents, Tavia. They are not your strong suit.

    I read all the time, or nearly. I always have, I guess, since I was very young ... and now, getting older, more audio than any other medium.

    "Light entertainment with some sizzling sex"

    This is not a great book. Not awful, either. The narrator is fine except for her exaggerated cockney interpretation of Bones, which is grating, to say the least. There is also at least one explicit and rather kinky sex scene which is downright hot. If you can get it on the cheap, it will fill some hours.
