Some things just won’t stay buried… at grave’s end.
It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover, Bones, at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.
As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’ past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.
Love in vein: listen to more novels in the Night Huntress series.

“Each successive chapter in Frost’s exceptional Night Huntress series adds more complexity, death-defying action, and fiery romance. While expertly deepening Cat and Bones’ love story, Frost also keeps the plot revelations absorbing and the jeopardy remorseless. In an increasingly rich and vibrant genre, she continues to prove she’s a star.” (Romantic Times)
“A can’t-put-down masterpiece that’s sexy-hot and a thrill-ride on every page. I’m officially addicted to the series.” (Gena Showalter, New York Times best-selling author)
As usual Jeaniene Frost has twists, turns, romance and just altogether good writing. I love her charactors and Tavia Gilbert does a great job portraying them. If you like Kim Harrison, Rachel Vincent, Patricia Briggs or anyone along that line, you'll love Jeaniene Frost. She has this "Night Huntress" series aong with a spinoff series about the other characters. Both are good and I'm looking forward to the next one ;o)
I love the story line of this book. However the order sequence is off this is book three not four.
I am so happy to hear the audio version of this story!! I can never seem to read with a British voice in my head and it was great to hear Bones again.
I grew up with books....not television.
Usually, a series can tend to get dull after so many books, not this one....I've read them all and still waiting for another to come out. Cat and Bones are the ultimate supernatural couple and their "interactions" are some of the steamiest, hottest and best written scenes I've had the pleasure of reading so far. Most erotic scenes I've read in other books are just ridiculous or predictable....to the point where I'm rolling my eyes . Not the scenes between Cat and Bones...they are fantastically written and the imagery you get is best experienced in a dim room behind closed doors. It's just that good.
If you are a fan of this genre - THIS is the series to own. Worth every credit or penny you spend.
I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)
With this book Jeaniene Frost brings us more battles, love, and misadventures with Cat and Bones by way of her extremely talented writing. I love the relationship between the characters, and the way she writes how they talk to and think of one another. Frost knows how to make a very powerful scene out of words and details that are deceptively simple. (I.E. Bones' proposal to Cat early in the story). In this "episode" there are two main foes, both extremely dangerous and variant mutations of evil. One is Cat's father, and the other is a very old female vampire who happens to be Mancheres' estranged wife. In the interest of full disclosure (and I say this as an obvious and die-hard fan), I did notice a step-up in the violence with this book, maybe it "hit home" and felt more personal because it included scenes like one with Cat suffering abuse and torture by her father. That was pretty intense and on one level I found it a little hard to take but in the end of course it did not turn me away from this story or Frost's writing. Also, excellent and talented narration by Tavia Gilbert as always.
It took a while to get into because the way the narrator does Bones's voice sounds like he should look more like Gollam than the hot vampire he's supposed to be. I started substituting narrator's voice of Bones (yes in my head) w Paul Bettany's (in my head I think Paul would make a fantastic Bones)!!! I'm completely hooked!!!! This series is dangerously addictive!!!
This series is addicting!!! Highly recommended. The plot is intricate, characters compelling and narration superb. I often forget that I have not seen these in a movie format because once you begin listening you are immediatly emersed into the world of the night huntress - Thank you Jeaniene Frost for sharing your gift.
This was even better than the last book. I liked it so much I went and got the next from the book store since it is not on audible. It is supposed to be available on audio in January! Its a must.
I ejoyed listening to this story & getting more involved with Cat & Bones lives together. The book had a great story line that kept me wondering what was going to happen next. Tavia Gilbert did an excellent job with the narration. I will be getting the next installment.
