At Grave's End
Series: Night Huntress #3
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Narrator: Tavia Gilbert
Synopsis from Goodreads
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.
I am absolutely adoring this series!
Night Huntress is by far one of the best things out there that eveyone on GR has told me to read but I never listened. Seriously, I'm kicking myself but I'm happy to be delving into the couple that is Cat and Bones.
At Graves End definitely didn't disappoint but the one thing that I felt was truly lacking was... BONES.
Honestly, not enough of him to satisfy me. I mean, it's not like he was gone like Edward in New Moon, but I guess I just wanted more of the sly devil.
So, in this book there were tons of action, we learned about sires and grand-sires (more in depth), we learned about vampire politics and a bit of vampire etiquete, and what happens when a nasty vampire princess chick wants out of a marriage.
We also met Vlad. I found him to be very interesting and am looking forward to reading his book. Spade also had a bigger part in this book. I haven't warmed to him yet but I'm sure that I will come around. And of course Mencheres was in this book, too. I'm awfully curious about his book. He just doesn't scream SEXY to me. But hey... his book has super good rating so I'm sure it's fabulous.
The ending made me gasp. I couldn't believe the beasties that came out of the woodwork. And Bones and Cat's new house guest had me thinking of a Sookie Stackhouse novel. Not in a bad way... that's just what it reminded me of.
There wasn't as much humor in this book as I would have liked, but Justina had some great zingers and her new *cough cough* relationship had me laughing my head off.
I look forward to reading the next book and can't wait to get some more Bones. I just hope that we go behind closed doors for a couple more pages. I hate to admit it but that's my new guilty pleasure ;)
