This feature is for short reviews, reviews of books in a series where it might feel repetitive, or (as Michelle suggested) books I was too lazy to write a “real” review for. Today’s books are all from the Night Huntress books I read.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Danger waits on both sides of the grave.With the mysterious disappearance of masterless vampires, a species war is brewing between vampires and ghouls that would kill mortals as collateral damage. Cat and Master vampire lover Crispin "Bones" seek help from dangerous ghoul queen of New Orleans Marie, whose voodoo powers rouse ghosts into unstoppable killers of the undead. The cost may prove more treacherous supernatural war, with repercussions Cat never imagined.

It’s taken me forever to read this series… I seem to read a book a year or something. But I think this is the one that will change that for me. Not that I haven’t enjoyed the others – I have. But this really pulled me in. I read it slower due to life getting in the way, but I was always eager to learn what would happen next. I love where cat and bones are with their relationship. I love the complexity of which cat is as a new, weird, vampire. I loved the ghostly aspects and yeah, I just really loved it. Jumping into the next one immediately for once!

How do you send a killer to the grave when he's already dead?Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, vampires Cat and husband Crispin "Bones" risk all to send him to the other side of eternity forever -- or dig their own graves.

Yeah. I read this in one day. Does it help that I was sick with the flu and couldn’t do much else? Sure. But hoy hell, even with a normal busy life this would have been a fast read because WOW. Heinrich Kramer was a villain I was invested in. I think the fact that I already have read the infamous witch hunting treatise Malleus Malificorium as part of my studies as a Medieval historian, I knew this man was evil without reading him in this book. But Jeanine Frost did a FANTASTIC job bringing the insane, evil, person he had to be to “life” as a ghost. As such he’s also the ultimate kind of villain – beyond so much of Cat and Bones amazing abilities. I devoured this and loved seeing the characters come together to do in this big bad. I really hope some of the characters introduced stick around in future books (especially Tyler). Downloading the next one to read asap! I’m officially on a series binge 🙂

Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death… because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear — will be hovering on the edge of the grave.

I loved it and really enjoyed it as an ending to the series. Things went in a direction I never expected but I liked them. I do like that there’s room for more, but at the same time it feels complete. I’m going to have to read other books in the universe now, especially since I can see room for more Cat and Bones throughout the universe!

    I’ve reread books 1-4 multiple times. Love them! But the last two were just meh for me. Same with the Vlad series. I loved books 1 & 2 but the last one was a disappointment.

  2. Jen

    I listened to all of these back a while ago. I mostly enjoyed this series and the two one-book spin offs. But the Vlad series left a bad taste in my mouth and now I don’t know if I want to try Ian’s books. What are you thinking?

  3. This is one of my favorite series. I own and have read all but the last one. I have them in paperback and Kindle format. I just keep saving that last one like a treat or reward for myself. Anne – Books of My Heart
