Title: One Foot In the Grave
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Huntress #2
It’s been four years since Cat left Bones and he has finally found her again. He is determined to show her that they can make their relationship work. But first they have to deal with a bounty on her head.
Cat is a hardened hunter now and keeps everyone at arm’s reach. Leaving Bones destroyed her but she has built a new life hunting vampires with the government. Cat has become so much stronger since the previous book. She was ruthless and determined before but now she is even more so. I liked her a lot more in this one because she wasn’t so prejudiced against vampires and has grown a lot.
Bones is just as flirty as in the previous book, but we also see his ruthless side. Cat leaving really brought out the darker side of him and now he isn’t afraid to show it, especially in front of Cat. Their relationship was just as steamy and intense as in the previous book, but this time it felt more emotional. They had to work through the pain of the separation and overcome Cat’s fears of the government.
I enjoyed Cat’s team of humans. They were a unique bunch of men and I am interested in seeing more of them in the future, especially since they are still struggling to deal with all the changes that are happening. We also get to meet Ian, Bones maker, in this and his grandsire, Mencheres. Both are very interesting characters and I can’t wait to learn more about them. Ian does seem to be a bit of an ass though.
Overall, I really enjoyed the continuation of the Cat and Bones story. I can’t wait to see where the next book will take us. Also, I really wish we got Bones POV for this series because I would have loved to have known his thoughts in some of these scenes.
