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)

    "Makes for a Short Commute"

    So this book was way better than the first. I'm addicted to this series and can't wait to keep going. I loved some of the turns the series took with this installment and there was definitely some stuff there that I wasn't expecting. These books are making for wonderful entertaining on my daily commute. Again, my main complaint is with the voice the narrator uses for Bones. Isn't just not masculine enough. But I do recommend these books for anyone that likes some urban romance. Just beware there are very long and detailed sex scenes in the books.

    "Summing it up...."

    One Foot in the Grave takes place around four years after book one in the Night Huntress series, Halfway to the Grave. Cat is dealing with a lot in this book, mainly her decision to leave Bones, which haunts her every day. She knows he is the love of her life, but she made a bargain with the devil, oops, I mean government, and for his safety must stay away from Bones. Yeah, that plan is working really well until she ummm bumps into him, at her BEST FRIENDS wedding! Coincidence? Who knows! The point is, what she left behind years ago is back and he comes with a vengeance that promises to never let her go again!!

    The Rundown....
    Overall, I was pleasantly pleased with this book. I really like the way the narrator, Tavia Gilbert portrays Cat. Enthusiastic, Sarcastic, Sensitive, somewhat Cocky, Fearless...these are just a few of the traits I love in Cat and and she emanates them flawlessly. Even the side characters sound pretty realistic, my favorite being Cat's nut-case of a mom, Justina. My only gripe, is the narrator's portrayal of Bones. In my mind, Bones is this hot, macho-ey man with a deep sexy, sultry voice!! When Bones comes to mind, I immediately think Man Candy. Unfortunaltey, the narrator's interpreation of Mr. Bones is a tad, wee-bit underwhelming! She gives him an English accent (sort of) that sounds like a mix between Mary Poppins and the witch from the Wizard of Oz. And no, not the good witch Glenda, I am talking about the Wicked Witch from the West. Yeah, the creepy green one. [hunches shoulders...curls fingers and squeals...."I'm melting, I'm melting, what a world...what a world!] Shutting mouth now!!

    Okay, so overall, and despite my previous Bones banter, I really did enjoy this Audio book. Sidenote- If your a newbie to the Night Huntress world, I suggest you actually read the book first. Then, if you like it as much as I do, che

    "Unfinished business - Outstanding"

    Bones is back! In this excellent extension to book one, it is four year later and Bones has been looking for Cat all that time. Cat on the other hand has become a very efficient vampire killing machine. That is the opening scene on this excellent next novel by Frost. There are two heroes in this novel series so far; Bones and Cat. There are such great reveals in this story, adding more color to Cat's background, you will love it.

    I've got used to Tavia Gilbert's voice for Bones. Still not a favorite, but it will do -- I guess. Anyone who likes supernatural will like this book. There are only vampires in this novel series with the occasion ghoul and ghost. Unlike other supernatural series littered with many different types of supernaturals, these two have been focused on vamps only.

    I recommend this series. Frost is two for two. I give it a thumbs up for an interesting and additive listen.

    "Awesome :)"

    I have read all Jeaniene Frost's "Night Huntress" books and they are thrilling! I enjoy the narrator and how she uses inflection and incorporates the accents nicely! Well done everyone for the project. I have recommended the books to many people and sold tons more at the book store I work in. Jeaniene is definately a top favorite author of mine! Keep it up FROST!

    "Great vampire series... Sucks you right in..."

    I've read so many vampire books that by now I'm hard to impress but let me assure you that this series is good, very very good. What I love most about this series is the heroine Cat. She's a kick-ass vampire slayer, strong, independent and does not need to be rescued. And Bones is the first vampire hero who's not too possessive, sicko and manipulative. He's just hot! Super hot and treats her so good.

    This book has fast paced action, humor, an awesome cat fight and it's just so interesting! The romance is still powerful and the sex scenes are hot. Very. Hot. I would recommend this book for many reasons but there is one extended amazing love scene that is so amazingly hot that I had to actually listen to it twice to remember every little detail. It is one of the hottest scenes I've ever read in a paranormal romance book. Even the police was called twice that's how powerful that was! I must say I really like Bones!!

    Narration: Tavia Gilbert is an excellent narrator. I only gave her two stars because although she does a great job with 99% of the characters, her portrayal of Bones is horrible! Why did she chose that terrible annoying voice for the sexy vampire Bones? Why, oh whyyy? Bones voice actually takes away from the story. The action and the story itself deserve another chance so I guess you really have to try to imagine Bones and not focus on how he sounds.

    "i have read the books and still enjoy the audible!"

    A few authors I like enough to buy both the print and audible book (Illona Andrews, Charlaine Harris). This is one. A great series, funny and exciting. Strong women and fun fantasy premise, well written, good narrator.

    "One Foot In The Grave"

    I've been looking forward to listening to this book for a while. I snapped it up as soon as it came out and finished it in a day. This is the second book in the Night Huntress Series and is every bit as gripping and fast-paced as the first. It was great to see Bones again. For someone like me who's read a lot of vampire fiction, he really is a breath of fresh air. One thing this book had over the first was that the Author seemed to have a better idea of when detail became too much detail. There were a couple of times in the previous book when I was given more information than I wanted, especially during some of the fight scenes. I didn't find that this time round. There were a couple of stomach churning moments, but as they were necessary to the story I could cope. The sex scenes were few as usual, which I like, though one was a little on the explicite side. All in all, if you like your romance with a healthy dose of action and vampires thrown in, this book is for you.

    "Struggle a bit with the English accent"

    It's a good story, with good characters. It grabs and keeps your attention. It's just the terrible English accent that's given the Bones character, it truly is awful!

    I loved this book. for some reason i missed the fact that it was part two in the series but that did not matter, after finishing this book i listened to the next just wanting more! i normally go for Zombie orientated books but had a listen to this after listing to Jenifer Estep Spider Assassins Series and Kelly Meding's Three days to dead. i am glad i did. It has Love, Fights, Supernatural and good one liners! i love the way Tavia Gilbert voices the people.
