Review: Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress #1) by Jeaniene Frost

Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Cat is a half-vampire out to kick some serious vampire butt, which actually means killing them. She's been taught for much of her life that vampires are full of evil, and the only way for her to atone for her half-vampire-ness, she must kill them. One night while vampire slaying, she meets another vampire whose purpose is aligned with her own. The vampire - Bones - is super sexy, and perhaps they could make a good team.

Yum! There was a good bit of 'action' in this book, and the sexual undercurrent was very strong all throughout the book. Bones has an English accent and that helps with the sexiness. He's one of those knight in shining armor types with a dash of rogue to him.

Cat is pretty fun, and she has this habit of killing first and asking questions later, which is amusing because it frustrates the other characters in the book. She comes off as a chick with a huge chip on her shoulder although there is a glimpse of her softer nature which helped to add depth to her character.

This book is a good read. I didn't have a gripe with anything, but it wasn't particularly special in terms of the plot elements, story progression, or characters. Granted, the ending had some interesting twists, and I'm looking forward to reading the next one.

Star Rating: 3.5/5.0

Great review. This book is a lot of fun and I love Cat and Bones (especially his yummy English accent)!

I love this series! I've read the first two books and plan on catching up during my Xmas vacation. Bones gets even yummier in the next book!


@Carmel ^.^ definitely looking forward to the next one then!


I love the Night Huntress series... the night huntress world series I could live without. I'm really looking forward to the next Cat and Bones.


@Nicole I didn't realize there was a side-along series!

Hey! I found your review on The Book Lover's Blog Hop! Isn't that a great idea!

Anyway, one of my best friends has read all of these books (the crazy girl reads more than I do and that is saying A LOT). She kept saying the same things you ahd to say in the commentary. Lots of great action, very fast pased, and very sexy. I hope to borrow them from her one day when I knock down a few more books on my own shelf! There's too many to choose from right now and I just keep buying more!!!
