At Grave's End (Night Huntress Series #3) by Jeaniene Frost

Some things won't stay buried . . . at grave's end

It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield's life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she's successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat's worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover's finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

As if that wasn't enough, a woman from Bones's past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat's about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she's learned as a special agent won't help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.

Married at least in terms of vampire laws, half-breed Cat Crawfield and pure bloodsucker Bones are euphoric. They were manipulated cleverly by her family keeping them apart for years. Now they live together and Bones has joined the government agency run by her uncle hunting rogue vampires.

Already the most successful team due to Cat¿s unique prowess, the addition of Bones makes the unit seemingly invincible. However, the vampire world recently learned that Cat is the notorious Red Reaper making her a Scarlet letter type target to her enemy and that Bones is a traitor. While struggling to stay alive from hunter-vamps especially one who loathes Bones for dumping her, they must prevent a war of magic from devastating the world.

The latest Night Huntress urban fantasy (see HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE and ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE) series is a powerful entry as the overarching theme moves forward with increasing complexity; while also containing an action-packed story line and intensifying the lead couple¿s romantic relationship. Now that Cat is outed, she wears a bulls-eye on her forehead as vampiric gunslingers know taking her down would make them into an over night superhero, not that Bones will sit idly allowing that to happen. Sub-genre fans will fully enjoy Cat¿s saga, as Jeaniene Frost¿s tour of the world of the ¿Grave¿ is deep yet fun to follow.

This was a really fun read. Now that Cat and Bones are married you would think life would start slowing down¿¿.. Actually it seems like things are getting worse! However bad it gets, Cat and Bones stick it out together. This book didn¿t have a minute to spare. It has action, sex, humor, emotional scenes and interesting creatures. Cat¿s father makes a rather nasty appearance and almost succeeds in getting her killed. Justine is very surprising in this one. All in all I think this book was just about perfect. I like how Cat and Bones (and now I can say the gang) keep evolving instead of rehashing the same old story. I love the direction the book is taking and can¿t wait for the next installment, An Early Grave due out July 2009. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series.

Book three continues with another great plot. Personable side characters are back as well as new characters being introduced. There were some moments where I held my breath and chewed my nails. I was so engrossed in the story. Bones is fast becoming one of my favorite vampires. These just keep getting better. Well done!

Another installment in the Cat and Bones saga. Not my favorite thus far, but very good nonetheless. My favorite things about this book: - Bones, of course. Still incredibly hot and sexy, and now even more powerful than before. - Cat. I like her attitude overall. She's not a wishy-washy female lead. She sees what needs to be done and does it. She does not let emotions interfere with her actions. -Cat's mom (Justina). This book shows a whole new side of her. I was laughing so hard reading the sections about her. Rodney deserves a medal! I wish: - We would have gotten more of Dave's transition to ghoul. This book picked up about four months after the last book, so we missed the newness of him. I would have really liked to see what it was like for him and the struggles involved with that. I'm sure it cannot be easy waking from the dead! - We would have gotten more of Patra. There was so much potential for a whole background story on her and Menechres, and I feel that it was all just pushed to the side and let die. I would have loved to know more about the magic used and the daughter of Cleopatra.

This is a must read series...I love all these books so much that after I read them I turned right around and read them all again. You'll love Cat (Kitten) and Bones...they had my eyes turning bright green with excitment and thrills...can't wait to see what will happen next ;-)

The sexual tension between Cat and Bones just wasn't there, and the action sequences were a bit unbelievable at times (Cat is almost TOO indestructible), but I still enjoyed the book. It's not as solid as the first two, but I'm still a loyal fan.

I am loving the Night Huntress Series. At Garve's End really has a twist. This is a must read!!
Mebuffy More than 1 year ago
This book is intense. There are devastating lows and so much death. I cried a few times. I think it catalyzes a lot of change for Cat. We see a lot more of Bones’s vampire alliances and yet more vampire politics in this book. The dynamics between some of these players makes for fun holiday parties. 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.

**This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.** When I picked up At Grave's End, it took me no time to reconnect with the characters and, even though it's been like a year or more since I read the last one, I quickly remembered what had happened. So high five to Jeaniene Frost, sometimes I either feel like I spend forever in a recap or lost, but neither happened with this one. I will say, though, that towards the beginning.. maybe the first 25% of At Grave's End... I did lots of eye-rolling. I'm not sure exactly why but some of the dialogue and some of the interactions just felt forced gimmicky. *shrugs* it didn't last that long - either I got used to it or it got better... or more likely, it was eclipsed by the awesome story, mystery and action. Maybe the first bit tried too much to be like a PNR and At Grave's End is so a UF and it just should have embraced that from the get go? Because At Grave's End excels as a UF. I read the last 75% in two sittings because it was so exciting. So much was happening - I love the vampire politics and rituals. I love the magic. I love the characters - even Cat's mom has grown on me! Shocker! And I really really love Cat and Bones - their relationship has grown so much in this one and I just love where they are as a couple. Poor Tate :( And there's some new characters introduced - Vlad anyone? - that I really hope will be around a lot in this series from here on out. And Jeaniene Frost threw in quite a few twists! I nearly cried at one point - and if the series weren't over and I didn't know a bit more about it than I would have had I been reading it as the books came out, I just might have cried. But the emotion was pretty overwhelming. So yeah, I'm re-hooked and looking forward to continuing with this series!

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars – Kept telling myself “just one more chapter.” Something amazing happened while I was reading At Grave’s End, I actually started to like Cat’s Mother. She’s becoming less of an uptight hypocrite and more someone I find myself smiling for when she enters the story. The one person I’m starting to dislike? Bones. I know, I know. I don’t really, I still love him, but my God who hasn’t this man slept with? We find out about even more of his past conquests in this book and I wanted to throttle him each and every time. This book was so full of action, things were really starting to pick up. Threats on Cat, a vampire war, it was all good stuff, good for us readers anyway, not so great for the characters. And things happen in this book that just had my emotions roaring. I knew there was a happy ending with this book, I mean we have a book 4, but at the same time I just felt my heart breaking in this book. I wanted to cry right along with some of our main characters. There was so much action in At Grave’s End, but like I did in the last I almost wish we would have had a bit less action and more time for Bones to woo Cat and us, the readers. I want more mushy times with them so I could roll around in what is becoming my love for Bones. I need to be reminded why he’s such an awesome alpha and book boyfriend worthy. I also wish two of our main characters would just leave. I’ll call them A and T for lack of using a spoiler. I really wanted A to end up our traitor so she could be ‘kicked off the island’ and as for T, I don’t like when people mess with my couple. Thank God, the story hasn’t turned into some kind of twisted love square, that would be horrible. If you can’t tell, I really liked At Grave’s End, it was another winner in the Night Huntress series for me. If you like vampires and paranormal stuff this is definitely a series to check out. I already have the next book on my Kindle, but I might take a small break from the series. Probably, just a one book break, I don’t want to suffer Bones burnout.

I was skeptical and only got to readinf the series out if lack of others to choose from but I fell head over heels. I found myself desperate to find out what happened next. Loved the characters and how the story wrapped me up. It was hard to put down from start to finish!!!!!
