You can run from the grave, but you can't hide . . .
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.
Being around him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won't let her get away again
Well then let's skip the pretenses. Wow! the fabled Chapter 32 lived up to its hype. It is presently the best sex scene in my book. The blind fold, tied up in bed and the jack hammer way of having an all nighter, all those emotions and weird shit vampire loving, I momentarily forgot Eric and Sookie's Definitely Dead fair share of carnal passion .
Smut aside, this is my favorite Night Huntress book so far. At the end of book one I was disquieted I thought Bones and Cat's star-crossed-lovers-ish predicament will continue until maybe book 4 or the later, I applaud Ms. Frost for skipping that unnecessary anticipation, everything had played well. At first I toyed with the idea that Bones professed love for Cat turned into hatred, when she left him with that note in Ohio. I was somewhat wishing that Tate would play as a third person in a love triangle. Glad that did not happened. The unpredicted and stereotypical part never happened when Cat took the plunge in giving her relationship with Bones the second chance it deserve (without so much as pep talk) Justina's prejudices about the undead played out well too. And I was truly shock that Don is Cat's Uncle. How fitting! the revelation that a living relative on Cat's father side is still alive was truly surprising. Oh and what about Annette, I love it when an ex-flame shows up and taunt he heroin, that cat fight would have been more awesome if Annette fought back a little. And last but not the least the ending, Dude! that was beyond excellent. Bones is now a free man and married to cat under vampire law, Cat finally met his father, Ian's off their back (for now) and Dave is back. If it didn't know any better, I would have pegged this as a happy ending. I cannot wait to see what other surprises Ms Frost has penned up.
