There's always one more grave to dig Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war . . .A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death . . . because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear—will be hovering on the edge of the grave.
Things in Cat Crawfield-Russell’s life have been way too calm of late. Therefore, it is no surprise when her ghostly uncle Don brings bad tidings. It appears there is a new big bad in town and he’s been kidnapping all of Cat and her husband Bones’ friends. Upon a little digging, Cat and Bones discover the fate of the world may be on the line if they cannot figure out how to once again save the day.
Cat and Bones seek help from some familiar faces but will it be enough to bring their friends home safe and sound or will Cat and Bones suffer an unthinkable fate?
Okay, okay this was a difficult read for me because I knew it was going to be the end of one of my favorite series. Of course, Up From The Grave was bloody fangtastic! I cannot and will not ever be able to get enough of Cat and Bones. Jeanine Frost brought to life characters that will forever hold a place in my heart.
The Night Huntress series was the first that I read starring a kickass woman I was ready to cheer for. I have always loved how this series went against the norms. We had a full life with Cat and Bones. They weren’t strung along forever they got their romance, had the chance to fight together with friends old and new, and now they have their happily-ever-after in true Cat and Bones fashion.
Up From The Grave charges the readers emotions. I went through the holy cow, crying, thank the lord, OMG! & the HELL YES stages. They were invigorating and made for the perfect ending. The plotline is thrilling and keeps the reader guessing. Up From The Grave is bittersweet and sentimentally satisfying. Thank you to author Jeanine Frost for years of exhilarating reading!
