Review: Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost



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 newfound 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.


I do believe I have just discovered my new favorite series! Cat is one kick-butt heroine and I love when the leading lady can take care of herself as it means she wants to be with the hero not that she has to be with him. Bones is fantastic. He is the epitome of what everywoman wants when reading about a vampire in a romance novel and yet nothing about him seemed clich├ęd or forced. I had one major disappointment with this book and it was the end, but because I've come to the series so late I have so many more to read! I loved the characters in this story, the good, the bad and the ambivalent. The supporting characters were entertaining and went a long way to revealing information about Bones and Cat. This is a very gritty book so I don't recommend it if you are looking for puppies, unicorns and rainbows but if you're looking for a vampire vigilante with deadly skills and fatal charm. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series, and the next and the next and the next . . .
