Now, I was prepared to be bored to tears or simply to roll my eyes over this pair's shinanegans since I found them to be rather jokey and very un-serious as a person can get. I mean, Bones is always throwing quips around and making fun of anyone he can, acting as irreverent as a person can get, while Cat made a few small contributions to Leila's endeavors while not doing much to quell Bones' snarky attitude. Then she'd quit the scene until the next time.
If you think I'm painting an unflattering picture of these two, that's because I am. But not to worry because in reading these earlier books I've gained a new appreciation for this people. Bones' snarkiness is a cover for a very calculating personality who only loses his cool when his true love Catherine, or Cat for short, is in mortal danger. Bravo for what you did to Max, by the way, although cutting Cat out of the vengeance part was a bit unnecessary since she can see your darker side, Bones, and not love you any the less for it.
Catherine Crawford, or Cat for short, is part human and part vampire thanks to her love-em-and-leave-em sperm donor Max, who screwed Justina over with his 'We are demon-spawn' spiel. And what Max did to both Cat and Justina deserved a hefty dose of retribution, Bones-style. Then the pair have to deal with the fallout of a millennia old mistake after Mencheres turned Patra in the hope of her loving him instead of the man he killed. Patra turns on him and they've been locked in an ages old battle for supremacy ever since. Now in this book, Mencheres fulfills the terms of a prophesy and drags Bones and Cat into the strife where Cat has to deal with her dual nature in ways she never had to before. And I have to say Cat grows into a true leader in here, though not yet enough to rival Mencheres.
And as an added bonus, I got to see Vlad again in here. Now to make this complete, where's Mencheres' new flame Kira? And will Leila make a small appearance in later books? To find out, I'll have to read more of this series and I'll enjoy every minute of it!
SPOILERS, read at own risk:
Tate was still annoying but better than the last book I thought- the scene with him and Cat in the limo was interesting...
I actually really really liked Vlad and hope to see more of him.
I was sad about Tick Tock and Zero!!
I agree with other reviewers- Bones just keeps getter more and more powerful and Cat gets like instantly healed BUT it still kept me on the edge of my seat.
Excited to move on to Book 4 now! Hoping we still Tate, Juan, and Dave now that Cat has made some career changes : )
Overall just a really emotional book with a lot of action. Cat and Bones grow even closer and their relationship grows more solid.
At Grave’s End brings magic into the mix and the results are catastrophic. It’s a game changer.

Things are finally looking up for Cat - she has the love of her life Bones working at her side helping to rid the world of rogue vampires and she has a great team to back her up. She should probably have guessed that things wouldn't stay easy for long though. More vampires are now aware of the Red Reaper and she is finding it harder and harder to carry out her job as a decoy without being recognised - even when she is using multiple disguises. Not only that but a female vampire from Bones' past is determined to see him dead and she is prepared to do anything to make it happen. This is an enemy like none that they've faced before - a vampire much older and considerably more powerful than Bones who isn't going to be defeated easily.
If you've read any of my reviews of the previous books in this series then you'll already know what a massive fan I am of both Cat & Bones. They are both strong individuals and they are one of my favorite urban fantasy / paranormal romance couples. I have to say that I was slightly disappointed that we didn't get to see more relationship development between them in this installment of the series - after the amazing heat of One Foot in the Grave I was expecting to see more of the passion between them. Having said that I found that the book was so action packed that I couldn't turn the pages fast enough & I read the whole book in just one sitting.
There are so many things going on in this story - enemies old and new, betrayals by people they thought they could trust, battles to end all battles and not everyone will survive to the end of the book. A lot of old faces will make an appearance (yay for Spade & Rodney!) and we are introduced to some fab new characters too including a couple of historical figures you're bound to recognise. I loved the action in At Grave's End and you are taken on a complete roller coaster ride of emotion alongside Cat making you laugh out loud one minute and leaving you close to tears the next. There was one point where my heart was in my mouth & I just could not believe what had happened. Cat is in for a difficult ride in this book but she really does have to step up to the plate and accept her vampire heritage which I thought she managed admirably.
There are also some interesting new developments with Cat's team and I'm looking forward to see what Jeaniene Frost has in store for everyone next. I am getting slightly fed up with Tate still trying to take Cat away from Bones, yes I feel for him but there is just no way he can compete with Bones and I hope he moves on with his life soon before he ruins is friendship with Cat. Overall I didn't quite enjoy this one as much as I loved One Foot in the Grave but it was still a fab read and I can't wait to continue reading this series.
This is the third book in the Night Huntress series (after Halfway to the Grave and One Foot in the Grave ) and I was really looking forward to seeing what happened next. This book didn't disappoint, managing not only to pick up some unsolved issues from previous books and bring them to surprising conclusions but also introducing a totally new bad guy determined to destroy Cat and Bones forever.
The storyline is full of twists and turns, not only in the more action-based parts but also in the backstory. Even Cat's mother goes in a whole new direction. Several characters from previous books return, including Spade, Mencheres and Ian, and it's great to see them take a larger role in the storyline. New characters like Vlad (yeah...THAT Vlad) also add interest and give some interesting side story.
It's great to see Cat and Bones more settled in their relationship as it allows for both more action and a more intricate backstory involving other characters. Tate's interest in Cat is still present, but thankfully completely unrequited meaning that there is no overused love triangle here. On the whole, this is an incredible read that sucks you in and doesn't let go.
All in all this was a great read and I can't wait to read Destined for an Early Grave .
Cat and Bones are still going strong though their are many who are out to stop it.
This time both Cat and Bones are in danger.
Someone is after Bones and the best way to get to him is Cat. Not before Cat has a visit from Max again but I'm not telling how things pan out.
I read this book in nearly one sitting I loved it. I was warned about the sad bit (thanks Bex) even though I knew it must get better from already owning the next books haha. Kind of ruined it in a way.
I loved the explosion scene, the limousine scene, and though I don't quite agree with how Bones was at the beginning of the 'in the back of the truck' moment I certainly love how it turned out .
Tate is starting to annoy me now though with his fascination for Cat he just seems to be getting a bit pushy and just as a comparison it reminded me of how Jacob got with Bella in the Twilight series(the books not film)
This was all a bit of one long ramble so I do apologise about that but when it comes to these books I do just ramble on.
It's got action, romance, comedy and vampires... what more do you want? The plot was quite interesting and kept me turning the pages. OK, so it's not the best in its genre but it makes for a good time, if you don't take it too seriously.
If you like other paranormal romance authors like Kim Harrison, Karen Chance, Laurell K Hamilton, Kelley Armstrong etc you'll enjoy this. It's witty and engaging.
