Review: Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

Night Huntress 1

Genre: paranormal romance
Pages: 358
Published: 2007

Flirting with the grave...
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father--the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner--are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her new found status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.






1.) Reasons you chose this book
I have heard a lot about this series..ok mostly I have heard how hot Bones is and about the mysterious chapter 32 on book 2. That I am very curious about. So I decided to give this book a go.


2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this book
- Bones, I liked him ;)
- I liked the sexual tension between Cat and Bones. And I did like how he fell for her and how sweet he was.
- The scene were he is talking dirty to her so that she can go and pick up vampires and kill them was so amusing
- Nice action and passion.

This one goes in the middle: It was an ok book, I liked some things, I disliked some other things. I never fall hard for pnr. I think they are ok, and the same with this one. Will I read more? We will see, I will not rush out to get it, perhaps if it lands on my lap.
- I was not that happy about the end. I felt like the story changed into something else and then when it ended I was not sure any more that I wanted to read more in this new setting.

3.) Reasons for recommending:
If you like paranormal romance then you will surely like this one too.
Anyway, is it really PNR? I got these UF vibes, ugh, confusing!

I need to re-read this series so I can get around to reviewing it. I remember really not liking Cat but Bones is so Spike!

Elysium said...

I've read good things about her books but haven't read one yet. This sounds good so maybe I should try it someday.

Anachronist said...

Definitely not tempted. Your review was great but a PNR is a ROMANCE after all (SORRY, now I must go and rinse my mouth after pronouncing such a dirty word. I might even wash my hands).

Yvonne said...

Sounds like another great paranormal.

Tales of Whimsy said...

Sounds fun :)

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

If I remember correctly, I liked the series more that I got into it. However, I'm a fan of her work, so I don't know if you should take my advice. :) BUT Chpt. 32 is a must just so you know what the heck the JF fans talk about! :)

I would consider this one a UF PNR. A lot of UF I've read sometimes has that edge to it. However, since the series revolves around Cat and Bones, most consider it a PNR. Did that make less sense to you? ...or is it just odd that I had put so much thought into it. ;D

I guess I did not love her either, sure she was kick-ass, but she was so young

Elysium'

Ana
Lol, do not worry, this time I will not try to turn your head around

Blodeuedd said...

Yvonne
Go have a look :)

JuJu
Aww Bones, he was nice

Melissa
Chapter 32 is driving me insane. It must be so hot that the pages fall off, I so wanna read that

I know what you mean, and that is why i would see it as PNR still this one had UF tones so I am with you on the UF PNR

Neena said...

a girl after my own heart. I'm the same about paranormals...XD

And I was sooooo the same about this book. I am sooo glad that I'm not the only one kinda iffy on the ending of this one..

The other in the series have..ummm...well lets just say it was a vie for LKHamilton's Anita Blake series, sorta... *halfsmile*

Chris said...

I liked this one. :)

Staci said...

I read her other series...can't name it right at the moment but by book 3 I stopped reading...just because I became interested in something else.

Jenny N. said...

I've seen this series around but don't know much about the story. After you mentioned how hot Bones is you have me wanting to read this now.

BLHmistress said...

I haven't read this series yet either but as you know by my blog this is right up my ally- I have the first book begging me to read it but I like to get all the books first- I am so funny like that.

Nina said...

I keep hearing great things about this book too. I always wonder if its really any good. mmm.. :) Bones does sounds interesting. Maybe I have to check this one out.

ps: I have not heard of the Fables graphic novels. I´m going to look for them now. Thanx for the recommendation.

ImageNations said...

Okay so not my kind of book but thanks anyway. It started nice but the end where the dislikes were stated threw me off. Thanks for being sincere

Blodeuedd said...

Redd
Yay, not alone :)
And yes that ending, did not like how it turned out. And I am just not a paranormal girl, I need my kick-assing

Chris
Was it Bones that did that? ;)

Staci
Her other, hm..that does not ring a bell, but I will look it up, thank internet :)

Blodeuedd said...

Jenny
Bones, oh they say he is like Spike...without the huge chip on his shoulder in my opinion ;)

BLH
I know what you mean. So many times I have started something and then cursed for not having the rest.

Nina
They Fables are so fun and weird, totally my kind of graphic novels :D
I think you would like Bones too

Nana
I have to tell it like I see it, not my kind of book in the end, even if it was good

The Bookworm said...

This sounds like a good series. Bones sounds like a hottie.

DCMetroreader said...

I need to share this review with my BFF who loves PNR books.

Blodeuedd said...

Naida

DC
Go ahead and share :)

Unknown said...
