The Story

Danger Awaits On Both Sides Of The Grave.

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just whe they've triumphed over the latest battle, Cat's new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance...

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous "ally" - the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

The Review

Jeaniene Frost does it YET again! I rarely read adult books unless they have some supernatural content in them and from the very moment I read the first Night Huntress book a few years back...I was hooked from beginning to end, making Frost one of my favourite authors of ALL TIME! She talented, witty, and with every book she brings out, the more I fall in love with these characters - especially my darlings, Cat and Bones. What a team these two make! I mean, have you ever bumped into a old friend and realize just how much you miss them? That's how I feel whenever I pick up these books!

All of the strong features of the Night Huntress series are still here in This Side of the Grave: there's great world building, sharp-wit humor, awesome action scenes, a very steamy love scene that Frost always writes so well, and all the have the pleasurable company of your favourite supporting cast including Mencheres, Vlad (gosh I love that guy so much, mainly because he makes me laugh so much!!) and many others that could take forever to mention my love for them. The only thing that's different this time is the fact that Cat and Bones's relationship is much stronger than the relationship you read about in the previous four books. And what I appreciated most about this, is that Cat and Bones are no longer running away from each other and having someone or rather something tearing them apart! Instead, they're are fighting together as one, which makes them my favourite fictional couple!

Without being spoilery - cause that would really suck, I can definitely say that Jeaniene Frost will never disappoint you with her books. She. Is. A. Writer. Legend. From beginning to end of her Night Huntress series and of This Side of the Grave, I can say that you'll NEVER get bored and there's NEVER a dull moment. Twists and turns, action and say at the least, expect some exciting new discoveries with Cat's new powers, some touching moments between Cat and Bones that make you smile, and some hellish drama that you can't help but crave for more!
