Review : One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost

Avon (August 30, 2011)

Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving-leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

There is no vampire couple in the urban fantasy world that is sexier or more lovable than Cat and Bones. That is a fact.

They are so sweet and passionate and fiercely protective of one another.

"There were words for what he meant to me, but if I studied every language ever spoken for the next thousand years, I still wouldn't find enough of them to describe it."

Cat continues to be funny, selfless, kindhearted, and courageous. While Bones is his usual suave, cunning, and lethally possessive self.  

"Think anything like that at her again, and I'll kill you here and now."

Madigan's scoff was uneasy. "Any attack on me --"

"Is the same as an attack on the United States itself," Bones finished, still in that deadly calm manner. "Heard you the first time -- and didn't give a shite then, either."

We also get more Ian, Justina, Spade and Denise (she is such a badass!) along with an interesting new character named Tyler. 

"I couldn't help shaking my head as I looked at him. Ian slept like a baby every morning - well, a baby who continually kept one hand down his pants."

Even though the story had a slow beginning and a villain who eventually became more annoying than terrifying, I still thought this story was excellent.

While I am very excited for Vlad's new Night Prince series, what I really want is more Cat and Bones. Thankfully, Night Huntress 6.5 will release later this year in a book titled "The Bite Before Christmas". (Thank you Jeaniene!)

I can't wait for Vlad's book! though I do want more Cat and Bones too. I'm curious to what will happen in the next Cat and Bones book =DDDD

Has to be something with Madigan I would think because there wasn't really a resolution there. I do hope Tyler's character stays.
