Book Review: At Grave's End (Night Huntress, #3) by Jeaniene Frost


At Grave's End (Night Huntress, #3)
by Jeaniene Frost

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.

No matter how much anything bugged me about these series (number one being the main character, Cat), I could always fall back on Bones (Cat's vampire boyfriend) to save the day. Their interactions even had those "aww!" moments for me at times, but not in this third book.

Cat seems to only grow in age and nothing else. She's still the stubborn girl with the I-kick-ass-look-how-awesome-I-am attitude. And her being the narrator leads to a lot of repetitions: we know where you hide your silver knives, we know your shoes have silver heels, we know nobody would think of it, we know you love Bones. Most of the time she seems like she thinks things through and comes up with a bright idea, but she doesn't, really. I still don't understand why she's out on the field when the entire vampire population--especially the ones who wants her and Bones dead-- know who she is and CAN tell who she is even when she's in disguise. Also, I got very tired of Bones having to feed her his blood every single time they find themselves in a fight-- if she's such an awesome fighter, why's she almost dying that often?

Her mother was the most fun character in this book. Tate is getting boring with her obsession with Cat and his blind royalty to her. Mencheres is pretty cool. But the rest of the characters are barely there. Oh, have I mentioned Dracula shows up and fights on their side? Sorry for the spoiler, but I also am not sorry since it's not going to spoil anything for you, really.

The next book in this series is "Destined for an Early Grave." Judging by the reviews I've read so far, it's the best book in the series. Hope it doesn't disappoint.
