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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cat and Bones are hot as ever in this third installment of the Night Huntress series. Cat has discovered that she is too recognizable while there is someone out there who wants to kill Bones. They will have to have to battle humans, vampires, and even zombies. Will they be able to make it through the holidays alive?
I loved this novel, as I have loved the rest of this series. Cat is a smart-ass, Bones is a dirty old man to the highest level, but together they make an unstoppable pair. Cat’s mother, Justina, made me laugh so much, especially in the middle… But you’ll have to read the book to know what is so funny!
In this novel, we learn a lot more about Bones and his Grandsire, Mencheres. New villains and old friends come into the picture. There is definitely more character development for Tate (who I feel is a giant pain in the ass), and there are a lot more scenes with him pissing Bones off. I don’t really like Tate, but I now understand more of his motivation through this novel.
I know there were places that I laughed, cried (even though I knew I had no reason to), and even yelled at characters. With a lot of action, you can be sure to be kept on the edge of your seat.
The only thing I had a problem with was how it ended. It made my heart hurt, but it made me want to get the next book right now! It was enough to make me want to jump in the car at midnight and find an open bookstore (which in small town South Carolina, that is impossible).
Highly recommend and I’m looking forward to continuing on with this series.
