You can run from the grave, but you can't hide . . . Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.Being around him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won't let her get away again.

Sigh. I didn’t know that the second Night Huntress book could be even better than the first.

We were left with a bit of an annoying end to Halfway to the Grave. Well, now Cat is working for the government as a vampire hunter and it’s been four years since she left Bones. To say that she misses him would be an understatement. But her new boss would never allow her to have a relationship with the undead. But then bullets start flying at Cat’s head, and Bones may be the only person she can turn to for help.


A very Bones-less Cat has been running around with a bunch of army guys for the past four years, taking out vamps. The guys on Cat’s team are super fun additions to Frost’s cast of characters, each having his own distinct personality. Cat pretends like she doesn’t think about Bones 99% of the time, but she’s a BIG FAT LIAR.

Bones, you sly, sly dog. Compared to the first book, One Foot in the Grave takes the steamy to another level. Another…vampiric level, shall we say.

All the vampire/supernatural action is back, with Cat, Bones, and her team showing everyone who’s boss (lets be honest, Cat thinks she’s the boss, but it’s totally Bones). Frost raises the stakes with more serious villains, creates tension in Cat and Bones’ relationship, and wounds Bones very close to home (poor guy). The Night Huntress series are just plain fun, a bit of a guilty pleasure, and surprisingly well written. Even better than Halfway to the Grave, if that’s possible. Can’t wait for the next one.
