Halfway to the Grave is delicious! The Best of the Genre! 10 stars! A+ I am 30 and I write this review for anyone who might think this is young ad..Show More »ult nonsense:
Personal Disclaimer: Im new to the genre. I snubbed my nose to it bc of the pop culture craze of Twilight, and a strict loyalty to the Vampire world of Ann Rice. Somehow, I stumbled into the paranormal/time travel genre with Karen 's Fever series, and then finally read Outlander. After dabbling in a few JD Ward books, "The Night Huntress" series was recommended to me and I downloaded this book. I was judgmental of the cover and the silly name, and it just sat in my audible library for months. After listening to a heavy depressing book, I needed a break and put this on...
I LOVE this book. I'm addicted and in love with these characters. Bones is surprisingly funny and charming but very different from the smoldering alpha males in every other romance novel I've read. Cat is my favorite heroine since Scarlet O'hara! This book is so different from any other "vampire" or paranormal book I've ever read. It's funny, sexy, and completely engaging.
But to my amazement, it also contains one of the hottest love scenes ever written, not because of any graphic sex, but because of the chemistry and tenderness of the two characters. I was surprised by how sexy this book was. And the author doesn't play the same old games of delaying the "good parts" till the end, which is frustrating and gets old pretty quick! (I waited 5 books for Moning's characters to finally hook up.. And still resent the frustration i felt) Instead Jeaniene Frost uses the integrity of her writing to create sizzling chemistry and true emotion between this unlikely couple. The story itself is intriguing and unfolds as a suspense filled battle with the reader just as interested in the plot as in the characters love life. What a true gift of a book.
Finally, I must say a narrator makes or breaks an audio book. In this case, Tavia Gilbert is AMAZING! I want her to read every book I have. Her character voices are wonderful, and she brings this to life better than any actor could on a movie screen.
This book has it all! And I plan to devour every book by this author!
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 ..Show More »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.

If you have read/listen to the first 4 books of the Night Huntress Series and the 2 World Huntress Series it's a must, while each book is easily a standalone story, they definitely run on from one another. If this is one of the first series you've gotten, I also liked the Sookie Stackhouse series, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs series and the Drake Chronicles (It's taken me a long time to find some good vampire series, I wished people would write what else they liked in their comments)... Happy reading, can't wait for the Vlad World Huntress book to come out...

Tavia's narration is second to none and she really brings this book to life compared to another populare series; the Black Dagger Brotherhood which I don't really like but everyone else seem to love, maybe it me but I think it's the BDB's narrator (I think he's just awful, I think Robert Petkoff would have done the series justice). This series is simply amazing, for me this is the best series I've listened to and would recommend it to anyone. Everyone I've suggested this series to couldn't believe how well written and read it is. The twists, turns and tie-ins between the other books are handled so well I would like the opportunity to meet Ms. Frost just to pick her brain. If you like the Night Huntress series, You will not be disappointed with this book.
