    I was so excited for this, the last book in the Bones and Cat se

    I was so excited for this, the last book in the Bones and Cat series, but I also know better than to build a book up in my head and get let down later, so it was a tempered excitement. I have read every novel and every short story Jeaniene Frost has written and I think she is a very good writer. I will not spoil anything for anyone, I will start with that. First, I expected to see familiar characters guest star in this, and I was not disappointed. The one character who has not gotten his own story yet is heavily set up to get his own story because Frost makes him very likeable in this story. If you read "Home for Christmas," you know Frost was heading this way with the character I am speaking about. Secondly, the plot for this was one of her best-everything that had been laid out since the end of the first book, with Uncle Don, is unveiled in a very big way, and that is all I will say about that. However, as I sit here, I have been finished with this novel for about an hour and I will admit to being disappointed in the way it was written. With every other novel, we were right there with Cat, allowed to feel what she felt, and allowed to see her reactions, heartfelt and deep reactions to whatever was being played out in front of this passionate character. With this novel, Frost seems to be telling it from the perspective of a memory-yes, it is first person narrative, but the voice is that of a detached story teller instead of someone involved in the immediate "here and now." I guess it's sort of like Frost is letting go of the characters, and they seem distanced in this story. For example, Cat undergoes some serious, serious emotional upheavals, and I expected to see her react like she did when she had to let Bones go in the first novel and when they broke up in one of the subsequent novels. The loss was tangible by the reader. In this novel, it's like she hit a rabbit on the road. There is shock, grief, and then you figure it can’t be helped. Granted, she is in a lot of danger and on a mission when ‘things’ happen, but the nature of this particular loss should have stilled her, stopped her in he tracks...and it didn't. It's got a "look, but don't touch" kind of quality to it. The other thing that was a minor irritation was Frost's need to review every pivotal scene from every other book. The book was supposed to be written for us, the loyal fans, not to catch up those who just pick up the book. That's an unfair criticism, I know, because the author is trying to win new fans, but hey, what about her old ones? If people don't get the allusions to past stories, they need to read the older books and stories. Having said these things, I am glad I read this, I feel satisfied at the ending. I will give it four stars. I'm just as glad, if the novels would continue, that they not be written like a gorgeous feast I am only allowed to enjoy from a distance. Very respectfully, Frost is one of my favorite authors, and remains so, even though I didn't enjoy this as much as I have her previous works.

    Up from the Grave by Jeaniene Frost is the 7th and final book in

    Up from the Grave by Jeaniene Frost is the 7th and final book in her wonderful Night Huntress series. I am a big fan of this series, having loved it from the start, and each year I would anxiously await a new book. I was sad when Jeaniene told her fans, that she was writing the final book for our fabulous couple Cat and Bones. But having come to terms with this ending, I could not wait to read it, and Jeaniene does not disappoint. Up From the Grave was a great final book, very exciting, lots of action, some tense moments when you thought your beloved characters would die, and seeing all of our friends again; not to mention spending more time with Cat & Bones, made this that much more enjoyable.

    The story begins with Cat and Bones at their home enjoying their peaceful time, and each other. Then Cat’s uncle Don alerts her that her old teammates, Tate, Juan, Dave and Cooper are all missing. They suspect that Madigan, the man who took over for Don, and runs the research compound (trying to create a unique army by uniting vampire and ghoul bloodlines) is behind their disappearance. They investigate and end up where it all began in the first book, when our Cat Crawfield was just a half vampire, and leading the attack at killing vampires; she is and always will be The Red Reaper.

    I do not want to give spoilers, even more so as this being the final book and I will not ruin it for anyone. I will say that this is an exciting adventure with so many revelations, two villains, and a major major twist more then half way through. There is so much action, and it was fun just to see the old Cat fight against her enemies, even if at times dangerously close to be scary. She is one of the best kick-assed heroines in the paranormal world. I loved Bones helping Cat, and they prove again and again what a great team they are, besides a wonderful sexy couple. The major twist in the last third of the book, showed another side of Cat emotionally, and how much she has learned from Bones.

    One of the major reasons I loved this book, was seeing all of our favorites again, helping through this thrilling action filled adventure; Denise, who was great in this story; Mencheres, Ian, Spade, Fabian, Vlad, Kira, Leila, Marie, etc, just to name a few. Thank you, Jeaniene for allowing us to see them all together again.

    Up From the Grave was a wonderful final book in this series. There are so many things happening throughout the book, but again I do not want to spoil a thing. Will we ever see Cat and Bones again? Hopefully one day in the far future, Jeaniene will give us glimpse in one of her other stories or novellas. If you have not read this series, or this book yet, it is one of the best, not to be missed. Again, thank you Jeaniene Frost for this fabulous series, and a fabulous couple. We will miss Cat and Bones.

    I dont want to let go

    I love this series so much. I feel like this is a good book but not great maybe because I'm sadden by the thought I will never read something as good as cat and bones I love them together so much. I think this is the best series there is out there. I just wish she would make two more books on them sevens just not enough. :(

    Heartwrenching

    This book had me going almost balling with her hurt and betrayal from madigan and trove I'm a mother too. I loved cat and bones and haven't found a paranormal relationship that these two have. Sad to see it end but a wonderful ending. I have to agree with one poster the dialogue does feel like it is told by memory for the first part of the book. You don't feel the real emotion until halfway to the end. Great series!!!

    ~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    Cat and Bones have been legendary.  They’ve been very much a part of most paranormal readers hearts for the last ten years.  We’ve been through the ups and downs with them, and quite frankly I could read about them forever.  When Jeaniene Frost announced this would be the end of the series, I was both disappointed and happy.  Happy because for once, an author does right by her readers and decides this is where the story should end.  Instead of giving us a filler book and a washed out version of her vision she gave us UP FROM THE GRAVE, which might just be the best possible closure to the Cat and Bones saga!

    Bones is as usual a ruthless vampire, protective of his mate.  He truly is prepared to do anything for her and to keep her safe!  You might crush on him a bit more than you were already.  Cat had gotten a bit whiny lately for me but in this book she put her big girl panties on and kicked ass like it was book 1 all over again, adding to that a huge dose of confidence she didn’t have then.  And the rest of the cast had an important presence as well.  I loved every minute, every second, every page.  The chemistry between Cat and Bones has changed so much and come so far.  It was like seeing an old married couple (in a good way!), still very much in love, full of passion and heart.  I loved how comfortable they are with each other and how much they’ve grown, together and apart.

    This book was full of surprises!   Once the action kicked into gear, there was no stopping the force with which it moved ahead.  It was riveting and I NEEDED to keep reading every second I could.  Until it hurt to continue.  Until my vision blurred and my heart broke.  This book definitely packs an emotional punch.  And kicks ass all the same, it’s the most action packed I’ve seen the Night Huntress series in a while!

    There’s not one thing wrong about this book.  The storyline is unique and interesting.  It brings into play old and new players.  Tying up any lose ends that could be hanging around, and giving us just a taste of what their Ever After will be.  But be warned and prepared, this will probably rip your heart out and stomp on it a bit before putting it back together.  I laughed, I swooned, I cried, then I cried HARD.  UP FROM THE GRAVE will leave you with a bittersweet smile on your face and a sense of satisfaction.  I hate to see them go, but they’re going happy and how they deserved.  Loved by many.  Congratulations Ms. Frost.  This book was better than I ever imagined it could be.

    If I could only have one request now would be to see more Ian!

    Oh my gosh, I could not wait to read this book, knowing it was the final chapter to Bones and Cat, truly bitter sweet. I laughed, cried and times I wanted to through the book across the room.
    If you have not read this series you don't know what you are missing. Jeaniene you have done it again. You are one of the most awesome amazing writers I have read. As with every book I have read of yours you did not disappoint in any way shape or form. Thank you.

    This explosive conclusion to The Night Huntress Series doesn't disappoint. From first page to last page, you receive answers to all your questions and some questions that you even didn't think of at all. You get to see all the characters of The Night Huntress World some old favorites to your most hated characters. No stone is unturned or ground uncovered. I'm pleased this series ended on a high note unlike The Sookie Stackhouse Series which ended but didn't really resolve anything or produce a HEA for the characters. Ms. Frost did a beautiful job and she will always be on my must read list now and in the future.

    Wonderful ending to the series

    I have loved Cat and Bones from the start. Every book has had me on the edge of my seat, or in tears at some point. Just like the previous ones, I couldn't put this one down. However, some of the plot twists were slightly predictable, because we had seen them before. Not all of them, but a couple. I highly recommend this book, Frost does a wonderful job of bringing closure to the adventures.

    This seti Fabul Great series

    All seven books were such page turners! I never wanted to put them down. The romantic and interesting relationship between cat and bones was fabulous-he is so sexy and loving. I loved the other characters you met along the way, the bloody battle scenes, the interesting story lines in each book, and cat's growing process as she learns to accept herself. I loved how the series began and it ended on a strong note, but i was still sad to see it end because i loved the characters and the balance between plot lines and romance.

    I just read this book yesterday, it took me about 5 hours to read it, because I couldn't put it down. This series is one of my all time favorite series' along with Cat and Bones being one of my favorite paranormal couples. There were parts of this book that I thought were a little weird and very out there, but all in all it was a fantastic book . I was saddened when I thought Bones was dead but I loved why he did what he did. Katie was a wild card but I would love to read a book about her, she is definitely a dynamic character.

    I will admit to dreading this book. I got more attached to Bones and Cat than even I normally do with characters. I think every avid reader is sad to let a series go but this was almost fangirl level of loathing the ending. After reading it though I was ok with it being the end. I am not even sure I am really going to miss them, at least not in the way I thought I would. I think I could read Cat and Bones banter forever, not to mention the adventures they get into and I will miss that anticipation of a new story for them but I don't feel like I still need another story for them now.

    Of course like everyone else I keep waiting for Ian to get in over his head with a woman and there is the next part of Vlad and Leila's story. No spoilers but everyone who read this is probably thinking exactly where things are probably going to go from there. I think it is time to go back and reread everything in order again while waiting for Bound by Flames. I guess I do need a little more Cat and Bones banter...

    This series needs to be read in order. The first is Halfway to the Grave. (Night Huntress Series).




         Sadly, this is the last book in the Night Huntress Series. This was a well done ending to the series. It soon grabs you and takes you on a roller coaster ride, with a few shocking turns and twists, along the way. I will miss Cat and Bones but at least they finally get their well deserved happily ever after. By the end of the book, nothing is left unanswered, all the secrets from Cat's past with Don are revealed, and the way things end up feels completely natural, and as one could see it ending. A series worth reading, and well done.
