Raised by her human mother, Catherine Crawfield has spent the past few years eliminating every vampire she could, and hoping one of them might be the father she never knew. Her half-vampire blood gives her an edge in the hunt, but it doesn’t prepare her for the likes of Bones. When Cat picks up Bones with the lure of pleasure to be had, the tables are turned and she finds herself no longer the hunter but the vulnerable prey. Given little choice, Cat trains to fight by Bones’ side and continue the process of destroying the vampires she’s been taught to hate. When things go wrong and it’s time to run she’ll have a difficult choice to make, but only one choice will protect those she loves.

Bones is on a mission to stop a powerful vampire, and the goons that do his bidding. Cat is the perfect partner with her half-vampire blood and her still beating heart. To the vampires her pulse marks her as human, and that makes it all the more easy to get close to their targets. Bones will stop at nothing to put an end to the vampires who risk their very existence and to the minions who enable their power. In the end the price could cost him everything he holds dear.

Halfway to the Grave is the first book in the Night Huntress series. Cat has lived her life as an outcast, and turned it into the strength she needs to hunt. Bones hadn’t planned on taking on a partner before he met Cat, but together they’re about to turn their target’s world upside down. Pairing-up a sassy half-vampire out for blood, with a sexy vampire on a mission of his own, Ms. Frost builds a strong and captivating world full of paranormal twists, a touch of humor, and a romance that quickly heats up the pages. The solid forward pace and surprise ending nicely sets the stage for Cat’s next exciting adventure.

It should be a great vampire series. One Foot in the Grave will be out in the Spring, so not too long to wait. :)
hmmm...maybe I can add something in the sidebar that says what I'm reading now. Great idea...thanks!

So out of the past month's books what did you like the best?

Kimberly Swan said...

Wow, that's tough! I will say that Bones from Halfway to the Grave really took the cake for my favorite male, Milagro de Los Santos from Marta Acosta's Casa Dracula Series is my favorite female, and the sexiest is Malcom from Allyson James' Dragon series. Now ask me again at the end of October. :)
