Summary

Danger waits 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 when 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 war—to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

Love in vein: listen to more novels in the Night Huntress series.

Cat and Bones versus ghouls

Makes more sense if you've read/heard the earlier books in this entertaining vampire series. Enjoyable story with more on Cat and Bones' relationship. Characters who've appeared in the Night Huntress World series books 1 and 2 also appear fairly briefly (but with adequate explanation if you haven't read those). My only problem with the audiobooks is that this narrator makes Bones (a Londoner from the early 1800s) sound like the Artful Dodger (from Oliver Twist), with an improbably high and camp Cockney voice which I just can't match with the character in the book. I expected a voice a bit more like Vinnie Jones in "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels"! Spade, however, an English gentleman (a baronet) from the same period, gets a civilised deeper voice with a BBC accent, which is done well and is much easier to listen to. My 4 stars are for the book itself and the mostly very appropriate narration but it would have had 5 stars with a better voice for Bones.

another great story

another great chapter in the night huntress universe. this time we're at war with ghouls. I love how every story brings out a new dimension to the undead world, New powers or species to consider. another great story with an achingly sad loss woven in.

Another brilliant book by Jeanine Frost, I have already read the Kindle version but still really enjoyed Tavia Gilbert telling of the story. Her voice really suits the books.

Excellent story

Absolutely awesome book. Looks of scenes that are so well written (and read) that they stay strong in my mind for months afterwards. As usual brilliant writing by Jeaniene Frost and brilliant reading by Tavia Gilbert. Tavia does all the voices so differently and well, I can hardly get my head around how different all the characters sound. The books are gripping, passionate and funny. Kat, the main character, is super sassy and cool at all times. She finally takes the plunge to the 'otherside'...

LOVE THIS SERIES

This series is one of the best I’ve read/listen to... the characters are in depth and the narrator does such a great job at portraying them you'll actually be left thinking 'Ha, that's something Vlad would say' etc... If you have read/listen to the first 4 books of the Night Huntress Series and the 2 World Huntress Series it's a must, while each book is easily a standalone story, they definitely run on from one another. If this is one of the first series you've gotten, I also liked the Sookie Stackhouse series, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs series and the Drake Chronicles (It's taken me a long time to find some good vampire series, I wished people would write what else they liked in their comments)... Happy reading, can't wait for the Vlad World Huntress book to come out...

Bloody Hell.. I loved it!

For all the Cat and Bones fans this book will not disappoint. Cat and Bones are well into their relationship so this book really delves into family/friend relationships, acceptance, and unconditional love. ~~

I laughed out loud and shed many tears through out the book. The passion between Cat and Bones is still present and the love scene took my breath away. I still favor Chapter 32 in One Foot in The Grave, but this one probably comes in second. ~~

I have been spoiled with the intense heat, lust and passion between Cat and Bones over the last few books and I felt like it was lessened in this one. I am sure this is because they are solid in their relationship. The ups and downs in their relationship that blasted passion and lust through out the pages aren't present in this one.~~

Tavia still rocked the narration. I do think she went a bit overboard in some of the scenes..She overpowered some chapters that were written so beautifully that merely reading the words would have produced a heart stopping reaction. ~~

I have started my count down for the next C&B this fall.. But I guarantee I will listen to this audiobook over and over again until then.

~Happy Listening!~

A fan forever of both Author and Narrator

I am totally addicted to Cat and Bones. I also find myself looking forward to hearing from the supporting characters like Vlad who cracks me up or Spades cool control and her P.I.T.A. mother. Jeaniene Frost draws you in within the first sentence but Tavia Gilbert presents the story to you with a punch. Jeaniene builds great drama, creates amazing characters and presents a great story. If you are new to this series it is a must to start from the beginning but you will NOT be disapointed. Many characters are brought back from previous books so you will get lost. Credits or money well spent.

Funtastical :)

Cat and Bones have figured out how to work together and trust each other. The maturation of their unity just makes them all the most endearing and one of the best couples in this genre. In this book, Jeaniene Frost resolves several storylines such as what is going on with Don and how will Cat survive her ghoulish enemy? This installment also starts some new and hilariously twisted storylines. All, I will say is Cat???s mom is ridiculous, and the Night Huntress World would be a lot blander without her! Tavia Gilbert does a great job with all of the different accents. I love these books and cannot wait for the next one.

And the punches keep on rolling...

The fifth installment of a "Cat and Bones" story that is at least as good as its predicesors, if not better in a couple of instances.
As previous reviews have noted, if you are new to the series and enjoy paranormal romance that embraces the dark with passion and the light with comedy, then this would be a series for you. Start with book 1, Halfway to the Grave, to book four and then move over to the "world" installments (First Drop of Crimson and Eternal Kiss of Darkness) before delving into this, you won't regret it.
But to this story itself, it is fabulous. The angst between Cat and Bones is gone and for this listener, I welcomed the change. They were strong in their love for eachother, all doubt and misgivings gone. The story development is strong; I laughed out loud (Vlad is by far my favourite) and felt tears dripping down my nose, it is that good.
The narrator, Tavia Gilbert, does a remarkable performance however sometimes her want to feel the emotion in the scene can sometimes obtrusive.

Great book, Great Narrator!

I love the Cat and Bones series! The books are great, and the narrator reads with so much passion, she is amazing. I would recomend to read the the first 4 Night Huntress books, then the 2 Night Huntress World books (also amazing), and then this one, as this book references both Night Huntress World books!
Enjoy!

Caution this series is ADDICTING!! :-)

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series. The characters are so well written they truly come alive... I was surprised that this could even be better than the previous books but Jeaniene Frost delivers... I really have only one complaint... once I start listening I don't want to stop...can be irritating if you get to work and have to stop listening at a really good spot !!! Arrggh hahah but it makes for wonderful commutes.. I live in LA and now I see traffic snarls as more Cat and Bones time yayyyyy

Loved it!

Just loved it. The best so far. The narrator was fabulous. I got the book in my kindle too. It almost seem to be the last book. She closed everything up and we got to see some of her characters from previous books. The only one I felt needed a book was Vlad. I hope she continues the series.

Love love the Night Huntress series

Another excellent installment of the amazing romance of Cat and Bones. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys a strong female lead, humor, wit, a sweet love story all mixed up in the world of the paranormal. Spiced up with steamy love scenes, Jeaniene Frost hits all the right notes.

Bones and Kat are back!

This series is constantly good and I am so happy that there are more coming. This time the enemy and the plot are more complicated and they take quite a twist and turn... I really enjoyed reading all the characters I have read in the previous book and how they do their own things. Now I'm so familiar with them, through all the previous books, they seem like old friends.

It might throw off first-time readers but I don't think anyone would start reading from this book. If you are please go back to the first book and read them in order! I also recommend reading the related Night Huntress World books published before this book, too.

Great read cannot wait to read more!
