Title: At Grave’s End
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Huntress #3
Well this was an action packed and emotional book for Cat and Bones. So much happens in this one that I am not sure where to start.
First, we have a lot of characters in this book. A vampire war has started with an enemy of both Bones and Mencheres. She is a ruthless vampire and brings a whole new set of dangers to the story. There is betrayal, death, and even some magic. It was great getting to learn more about some of Mencheres’ history and I do hope he finds happiness one day.
We also get introduced to the most famous vampire of them all, Dracula himself. I loved him and his antagonistic relationship with Bones. He was definitely a side character that I instantly loved. This book also finally deals with Cat’s father Max. He does some very terrible things to Cat and her mother. It was emotional, especially Bones reaction to it. I really wish we had his POV for this part, even though it probably would have made me cry.
Cat and Bones’ relationship in this one really took a beating but it just grew stronger with each obstacle. Cat really stepped up in her relationship with Bones and doesn’t put up with any crap. Tate’s constant interference in their relationship was annoying and made me hate him. I did really enjoy Cat’s response to Tate’s constant come-ons and wish she had done more damage because he clearly isn’t getting the message.
I couldn’t put this book down once I started. So much just kept happening that I needed to know what was going on. I loved every minute of it, even when it was very heartbreaking. I really hope we see more of Vlad and Mencheres in this series because they are fascinating. Also, I like that Cat’s mom is finally taking the stick out of her ass and seeing how she fucked her daughters life.
