Review: One Grave at a Time (Night Huntress #6) by Jeaniene Frost
One Grave at a Time - Jeaniene Frost

 

 

How Do You Send A Killer to the Grave When He's Already Dead? 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's voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he take physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity - forever. But one wrong step and they'll be digging their own graves.

 

 

 

 

After the last book was a bit of let down for me I was a little nervous starting this one. But I can say it was better than the last one. While not as good as some books in the series it is by far not bad.

We have lot going on for our characters in this book. The Government is on their butts and changes are happening in her old units and none of them are good. They also trying to find a way for her Uncle to pass on all the while trying to catch a ghost that kills and rapes women once a year on Halloween.

While there was a lot going on story wise this book seemed a lot slower them some others, it also seemed a bit darker or maybe that was just me.

There are some things going on with her mom that I’m not sure about. Sometimes it just seems the author is just dragging her mom along in the story and doesn’t really know what to do with her. 

I really like that we get more and more of Fabian, I really like him and he became just part of the family.

I loved that Cat once again finally embraced her uniqueness with her powers and made use of them.

Bones was also pretty nice in this book and I like that they became such a power couple. I just love them and they snarkly loving relationship and they would do anything to protect the other. Plus all the smexy times doesn’t hurt. Though the whole sex while flying in this book was a bit too much and bit over the top.

We again see a lot of people from the past again, and I still like Tate, wish he could have been like that from the very beginning. We also get to see some of the powers Denise has.

I was not a huge fan of Spade in this book, I think it was bit much , while I understand his need to protect her I think it was all a bit much, but he came down a bit.

Overall and other great book in the series and I curious to see the conclusion of Cat’s and Bone’s journey in the next book.

 

 

I rate it 4 ★

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

 

“Your mum pounced on her and started sucking away. Would’ve been arousing if not for all the screaming.”

“Ian,” Bones drew out warningly.

He grinned. “You’re right. I was aroused anyway.”

 

***

 

“That face. That body. And you know he’s packing. Look at the angle on that dangle.”

 

 

***

 

 

“Brilliant landing.. We´re trying to keep a low profile, and here you´ve gone and made it look like a meteorite hit.”

 

 

***

 

 

“You’re shagging a woman who can turn into a dragon? Blast you, Charles, I am sick with envy!”

Into the Fire (Night Prince #4) by Jeaniene Frost
Into the Fire (Night Prince) - Jeaniene Frost

Vlad and Leila face an insidious threat – a connection to Leila that could kill her but can’t simply be burned away by Vlad’s vast power

 

And when an unknown force with unknown motives and powers co-opts that bonds, it forces them to seek new alliances and venues to ensure safety. This is a threat that direct confrontation and threat cannot defeat; instead a delicate cat-and-mouse game ensures

 

They enter the world of magic – of powers and abilities that may even outstrip Vlad’s terrifying fire.

 

 

 

One thing I like about this book is how it deals with some extremely powerful characters. I’ve seen many book series that have run into serious problems because they’ve allowed their characters to have such an immense power creep.

 

This series started with major power hitters from the beginning. Vlad is impossibly powerful and Mencheres just takes this to the next level. These characters are unassailably powerful and in many ways it should take out a lot of the conflict of the series. This usually leads to stories being pretty convoluted in ways to disapply their powers (or just have the characters forget they have these powers) – or we have constantly escalating enemies

 

Instead we have enemies using lots of cunning, hiding from Vlad’s direct powers, not allowing direct confrontation. The tension and frustration of these mighty characters trying to bring their powers to bear but being unable to actually really works. And it works that the ending becomes an anti-climax because of that – because cat and mouse can be wonderfully tense but when the cat actually finds the mouse? It’s short – and that’s ok. They set up a good dynamic besides that.

 

On top of that I like how Vlad’s arrogance is often a problem, he charges in expects everyone to cower in front of him and is generally absolutely terrible at any kind of investigation. Intimidation, death and power are his skill sets and none are applicable here.

 

The action scenes are interestingly well done, the tension and worry and the prices they have to pay are all well laid out. I am tired by Vlad’s eternal “protectiveness” of Leila but she does resist that nicely. If ineffectually.

 

I like how we get more of an insight into magic in this book. I wouldn’t say it actually added to the world building of this series in any great detail – instead I’ll say that it hinted a lot as to what could be possible and the power and forces that are out there. It laid the groundwork for Leila to become more of a power and laid out the possibility that there are forces out there that Vlad may have to respect.

 

There are a large number of dead people in this book. The collateral damage is immense. And I can buy that Vlad doesn’t care – after all, his whole persona is that he is ruthless beyond ruthless. But Leila appears to be equally uncaring. Oh she’ll give lip service but then we’ll move on leaving absolute carnage in their wake all the time and she won’t spare more than a second to consider this

 

 

Similarly this grand epic romance that has Vlad quite willing to sacrifice anything for Leila? It’s terrifying, it’s creepy and it’s never really exposed as much except, maybe, round the edges, as sad because of the people Vlad is forced to kill to protect her. And by “forced to kill” I mean willing to sacrifice. There’s a whole sense that Vlad is terrifyingly ruthless willing to kill friends and allies and literally destabilise all of society.

 

As I’ve said before, I’m not against Vlad being this ruthless force – because he is. But no-one is challenging it, and the book presents this not as a character flaw of Vlad’s but as a proof of his romantic dedication. It’s not an obstacle others need to work round or something they consider troublesome or vexing. It’s not even presented as particularly negative.

 

Hey, remember when I said in my review of Twice Tempted that Leila was one quarter Cherokee, had only belatedly remembered it but at least mocked someone for assuming she had woo-woo because she’s Native American? She mocks the idea that her woo-woo must be linked to her being Cherokee and that her magic has nothing to do with her heritage. And this is a good thing because far too often People of Colour in general and Native Americans in particular are used to provide some exotic, shiny magic powers because they’re so “mystical” – especially for mixed race characters

Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny  by Cindi Madsen

 

 

 

Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I’m just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.

Confession #2: Ryder “Ox” Maddox’s deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I’m powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.

Confession #3: I can’t stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it’d be to cross lines with him.

Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.

Confession #5: If I’m not careful, I might relapse and fall for

Ryder, and then I’ll be totally pucked.

Danger waits on both sides of the grave.

Review : This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress #5) by Jeaniene Frost
This Side of the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

 

 

Danger waits on both sides of the grave.

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they've triumphed over the latest battle, Cat's new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance . . .

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous "ally"; the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war . . . to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

 

 

 

 

I really enjoy this series and really love Cat and Bones, some books more other less it all depends. So of course I was looking forward to this book.

I loved that we pretty much back home to where it all started and we see a lot of familiar faces that we love again.

Cat’s new abilities are no longer as much of a secret as they would like and they wrong kind of group finds out about them and sends the rest of the supernatural world after her.

Of course Bones and the crew are wont let that happen.

An ally or enemy, we never really know forces Cat to drink their blood and that alone will cause a while lot new problems to for Cat and Bones. We learn a lot more about the coming threat, about Cat’s “new” abilities as well about other people of the team.

There are also some major things happening with her family, or the only remaining living member that is, her uncle.

I really liked that we are back and see everyone again and some that we have not seen in a while , like Tate.  I was never really sure about Tate but I really like him in this book. He stood up for what he thinks was right of course, was a prick at times but still was very right in ways. It all just seemed to fit much better with him.

There were some truly heartbreaking moments in the book that made you wanna weep.

The very ending however I saw coming the moment one event occurred, and as much I wanted to be surprised by it I wasn’t. It was just very predictable. but still will be interesting to see how it plays out.

As much as I love the series, this book was a little bit confusing and a let down, It seemed to have a few holes. I guess there were some side books about Menchers and his girl and Denise and Spade. HOWEVER  it was very poorly tie in to the main books, one book everything is normal and fine in the main series and the next we all of the sudden have some new couples that seemed to have a rather big story themselves. Not only that but, there are also some new powers with Denise. While I like side books but I not always read them as I’m sure some other people and it should not affect the main books that much or at the very least should be written into the main story better.

Overall I liked the book and the “MAIN” story but like I said it was a bit confusing about Denise and them. As much as I would love to give it another 5 star review I can’t, it just had to many holes in the story and confusing at other things.

I rate it at 3 ★

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

 

“What the hell was that?” I gasped. “Premature inflammation,” he replied. “Happens sometimes. Very embarrassing. I don’t like to talk about it.”

 

***

“See?” I’d whispered to Bones, nudging him with a grin. “He never argues with her. Isn’t that sweet?”

A snort preceded his response. “Keep dreaming, pet.”

 

***

Bones didn’t share any of my qualms about suddenly holding an arm that wasn’t attached to a body anymore. He just grabbed the ghoul by his other arm and began thumping him over the head with the loose limb. I’d heard Bones threaten to beat someone with their own limb before, but I’d always assumed that was a figure of speech. Apparently not.

 

***

His grin was shameless "If you're just now realizing what an original I am, Catherine, you're even later to the game than I imagined."

"Your arrogance deserves its own zip code, Drac," I said, laughing despite myself.

Audio Book Review: Eternal Kiss Of Darkness By Jeaniene Frost
Eternal Kiss of Darkness - Jeaniene Frost

 

What an incredible book this continues to be. This is my first reread of 2017 and I can't believe this has held up to the test of time. I shouldn't doubt this authors talent when it comes to her Night Huntress and spin off series. 

 

I enjoyed how kickass and snarky Kiara was. There was never a dull moment with her around. She also stood up for things she believed in and usually won those arguments. 

 

I was on the fence about Mencheres for a long time before this book came out. I'm glad I gave it a chance in 2010. It changed my perspective on quite a few characters. I liked how protective he was of Kiara without overdoing it. When they had a disagreement he would fight her with rational thought and well formulated sentences. He never once pulled the alpha card.

 

I wish this wasn't a standalone because I would love to know more about Mencheres. I once read somewhere that this author does plan on writing more books for the characters in her Night Huntress series. That'll have to tide me over. 

 

The Audio Book:

 

 

The narration was overall very good. I will say though that the narrator's voice for Bone's really REALLY ticked me off because it was so high pitched and warped. One other thing that rubbed me the wrong way was how Vald's name was pronounced. I've watched enough movies to get used to that name being pronounced a certain way. It threw me off completely.
