One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
*Note: The summary contains some spoilers if you haven't read the first book (Halfway to the Grave). You should read my review of Halfway to the Grave.*
Cat is now working for a super-secret division of the FBI, but without Bones by her side. She still kicks some serious vampire butt, but there is a gaping emptiness to it. Then, someone sets out to kill her, which in and of itself, is nothing special, but this someone knows much more than the ought to.
I definitely finished this book with a grin o my face because those things which were good in the first book were still good in the second one. Cat is still awesome in her bad-ass vampire hunting role, and Bones, oh yes he is in this book (it wouldn't be right without him), is still delicious and British.
The major issue I had with One Foot in the Grave is the ending. Most of it was good, but the pacing, exchanges, and results right at the climax came across as less believable, silly and mostly a way to extend the scenes rather than good storytelling.
Fans of the first book will still want to read this, but the ending of this one makes me wary of the following ones. I worry that they will quickly decline in quality.
