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.
This was my favorite book in the series so far. I love the pacing of this series! Jeaniene Frost writes these books in such a way that you just keep reading, no matter what.
The plot thickens in At Grave's End...I really enjoyed the addition of the new characters and the growth of some of the main characters, especially Cat.
There were two parts in this book that shocked me. I won't say what, but let's just say that putting the book down was never an option! Also, At Grave's End had fewer bedroom scenes than either of the first two books. Book two, One Foot in the Grave was a little too much for me, so I was glad to see that part of the series reined in.
Just One Gripe:
My gripe is that I thought this series was concluded at four books (there are four books out now). I just read on Frost's website that there will probably be eight books in the series! I need to find out how it ends now, not years from now!!
The Best Thing About This Book:
The plot and the pacing.
Appropriate for a younger audience:
