Title: At Grave's End (Night Huntress, #3) Author: Jeaniene Frost Publisher: Avon, 352 Pages (December 30, 2008) From:Amazon
Synopsis:Some things 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's 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.
Review: 4.5 stars - First off - I have to say that I love this series and the third book didn't disappoint at all! And before I go any further, if you haven't started this series yet, you should soon because you don't know what you’re missing!!
Cat and Bones have done it again in this one. Talk about a wild thrilling ride that just kept going right through to the last page. There were a couple parts in the book that shocked me, that I didn't want to believe - making me eager to keep turning the pages. Yet at the same time I was worried what might be lurking around the next corner for one of my favorite couples.
The snark that I've come to love from these two was there from the beginning. I mean for me it wouldn't be Cat and Bones if there wasn't any snark or witty comebacks from the two.
In this chapter of their story someone wants both of them dead and it's a race against the clock to not only find out whom but to beat them to the punch. It was kind of a shocker who the villain was, but it really gave some great twists and turns that I didn't see coming. Because of this enemy after them, Bones comes together to form a formal alliance with his Grandsire - Mencheres to create a stronger front to attack and defeat this said uber villain.
Like I mentioned above there was some shocking things that happen and one was so huge that I'm surprised the pages could hold it. It was hard to read because of the pain that the characters were going through, but really kind of fit because at some point even the hero has to take a knock.
The one person in this series that continues to grate on my last nerve is Tate. I mean get a life already! It's time to move on buddy! The scenes with Justina - cat's mom are always ones I look forward to. Her one liners and come backs are great, but it's always fun to see who will put her in her place. Usually Bone's gets to take on that roll and let me tell you... he knows just how to push her buttons. Really, through does Justina not deserve it pretty much all the time?
All in all it was another great book in what's fast become one of my favorite series. I read the first two books back to back last year... and just have been putting off reading this one because I didn't want to have to wait as long for the fifth book. I haven't read the forth yet and not sure that I will until the fifth book is out. Well see if I have that kind of will power.
So, if you haven't read this series yet, get up and go get them now, or order them now! You won't be sorry!
