"a fantastic mixture of ominous plots, dark magic, and non-stop action"
Cat Crawfield's job with the covert government vampire
hunting group is becoming deadlier by the minute. With her
true identity unknown to the vampire world, they know her
only as the Red Reaper -- a deadly assassin with a take no
prisoner attitude. However, as of late, her identity is
becoming harder and harder to keep secret. Luckily she has
her beloved Bones by her side. Bones is a very old, very
powerful, and very deadly vamp in his own right and
now that Bones and Cat are married according to vampire
tradition, Bones has joined Cat's covert team to not only
help keep Cat safe, but to also aid in the elimination of
But all is not well in their world. Well, more than the
usual anyway. Someone has put a price on Cat's head in an
attempt to bring Bones down. The question is who...
and why? Joining together with their powerful allies --
both vampire and human -- Bones and Cat will need every
advantage they can get in order to save not only
themselves, but also those they love.
At Grave's End is the third book of Frost's Night
Huntress series and, as always, she does not disappoint!
I've been hooked on this series since its inception with
Halfway to the Grave, which was released back in
2007. Frost manages to continue deepening Bones and Cat's
relationship all the while adding a fantastic mixture of
ominous plots, dark magic, and non-stop action that will no
doubt keep you glued to your seat -- and to the book -- until
the last page is turned. With this latest novel, Ms. Frost
has definitely proven that she is one of the bright and
shining stars of this ever-growing urban fantasy genre and
I, for one, just cannot get enough of her. Lucky for us
fans, we won't have long to wait for the next Night
Huntress installment because An Early Grave,
book 5, is set to release in late July 2009.

SOME THINGS WON'T STAY BURIED...AT GRAVE'S END
It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield's life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she's successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat's worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover's finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.
As if that wasn't enough, a woman from Bones's past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat's about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she's learned as a special agent won't help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself - and Bones - from a fate worse than the grave.
