Meet the Author

Jeaniene Frost is the New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling author of the Night Huntress series and the Night Huntress World novels. To date, foreign rights for her novels have sold to seventeen different countries. Jeaniene lives in North Carolina with her husband Matthew, who long ago accepted that she swears like a sailor, rarely cooks, and always sleeps in on the weekends.

“Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Texas with their two children, three dogs and a cat. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge.

    Two Top Notch Dark Urban Fantasy's Top Authors Make One Fantastic Book!

    Jeaniene Frost "One for the Money" (Night Huntress series) novella originally from Death's Excellent Vacation anthology. This novella takes place after Destined for the Grave. This is a succulent little Cat and Bones fix, with plenty of humor. I especially loved the parts where Bones sacrifices himself in order to help Justine learn how to live on her own two fangs. I would definitely suggest you be up-to-date on the Night Huntress series prior to reading this novella. I highly recommend the Night Huntress series in order (Halfway to the Grave, One Foot in the Grave, At Grave's End, Destined for an Early Grave, This Side Of The Grave and One Grave At A Time) to fellow dark urban fantasy readers. I also look forward to reading Cat and Bones book 7, The anthology Bite Before Christmas "Home for the Holidays", which is almost the size of half a book due out 10/25/11, and also the new Night Prince series with Vlad and Leila, Once Burned due out 3/27/12. 5/5



    Ilona Andrews "A Questionable Client" (Kate Daniels series) novella originally from Dark and Stormy Knights anthology. Since this is a prequel of sought, you can still enjoy this novella even if you are not familiar with the Kate Daniels series. I really enjoyed this novella. It reads like a prequel as Kate's first encounter with Saiman. It was interesting creative and action-packed. I am a huge Kate Daniel's fan; however this novella just didn't feel the same without Curran. 4.5/5 I highly recommend the Kate Daniels series in order (Magic Bites, Magic Burns, Magic Strikes, Magic Bleeds and Magic Slays) to fellow dark urban fantasy readers. And look forward to reading the next Edge series installment Fate's Edge due out 11/29/11, Andrea's Spin-off series due out 5/31/2012 and Kate book 6 due out 2/2013.

    Great short stories by 2 great authors

    I love Jeanienne Frost and her Night huntress series and this is a great short story that happens between At Grave's End and Destined For an Early Grave (also after Eternal Kiss of Darkness if you read the spin off books). The book is about Bones & Cat babysitting a snotty heiress whos cousin is trying to kill her. The comedy and action in the books will make you want to read it again and again.

    "A Questionable Client" by Ilona Andrews is the story of how Kate Daniels and Saiman meet. It does not effect the Kate Daniel series but is good information if you read it. It is also a great short story that does not leave you hanging if you do not read the series.

    Review for One for the Money

    This is a very short peek into the life of Cat and Bones. They never seem to have a dull moment, or even some peace and quiet. If you're still unsure about the series, I recommend picking up this novella. It's an inexpensive way to get a taste for the books and catch a little Cat & Bones humor while you're at it.

    Bones nearly melts my heart when he begins teaching Cat's mom, who hates him with a fiery passion, self defense. Bones truly loves Cat and he doesn't just say it, he shows it. Who wouldn't want a man, or a vampire, like that? 

    We also get a kick ass battle at the end of the story along with a VERY near death experience and a demolished parking lot. Another great read from Jeaniene Frost!

    Fun Read

    Found the cat and bones series as a fluke but have enjoyed all. This short story may not have the whole cast of characters but it is a great beginning read if you've not read any of the series...very enjoyable.
