Description

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced … even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

Excellent!!

This series is addicting!!! Highly recommended. The plot is intricate, characters compelling and narration superb. I often forget that I have not seen these in a movie format because once you begin listening you are immediatly emersed into the world of the night huntress - Thank you Jeaniene Frost for sharing your gift.

Fantastic!

I've read the print version of this many times but Tavia's reading makes a powerful book even better. You hear the pain, anquish, heartbreak and the love Cat and Bones have for each other.

This is the best book yet!!!!

This book has been the best of the series in my opinion! It has what the last book was missing, passion, and action from the first page! I absolutely love this series and can hardly wait until the next book is released. Cat and Bones are my favorite lovers/haters/romanitcs/killers I've met so far! I also LOVE the fact that they have used the same narrator on ALL the books. She is good, does good voices and I don't have to adjust to a new reader after every book.

Great series...

This series is a great mix of action and sensual romance. I am not one to bear those mooning romance type novels. Although I found there was a bit of a continuity problem with this book. Bones level of strength is supposed to be unheralded because of the merging with his Grand Sires line, but Cat seems to doubt his strength at every turn. If you’re not a stickler for such minute detail, it is a very enjoyable book.
One bit of advice, although I was excited to see book 5 and rushed to purchase it immediately, I found that there are lots of spoilers for the Night Huntress world books 1 and 2. So I had to stop listening and go back and order those two to catch up.

Nearly put me in one!

I found this to be the highest octane ride off all the NH novels including the NHW ones too. The friction between Cat and Bones and the pace of the action had me riveted on the edge of my seat for a large portion of the plot. I enjoy this series immenseley and the peripheral characters have grown to such a degree that this book only enhances our knolwedge and affection of them. There are some fabulous one liners that had me bursting in to laughter. There are as many locations as a Bond film, tonnes of action, romance, and plot twists and turns. The rules are changing and the scope for Cat seems limitless as does Bones' love..

From the audio aspect I would have to lower the rating a little, as mentioned before in earlier NH book reviews, this narrator does not do Bones well. It is the actual accent and mispronounciation of some words that grate often. Over time it has improved a little or I may have gotten used to it. Cat, however, comes to life and I anchor well to her through this narrator. The other characters are fine.

A Winning Team!

Frost and Gilbert!
This team continues to make this a strong audio series, that shows no signs of slowing down. There are turning points in this book that open up the possibilities for the future of Cat and Bones. Don't stop reading.

Cat and Bones are meant for each other!!!

What did you like about this audiobook?

This is #4 in the Night Huntress series it was really good, but not my fave of the 4 I have read...I liked mostly everything about it, but don't want to say to much because I don't like to give away spoilers.....Read it....If your a Cat and Bones fan, you will love it!!!

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

I have devoured this series....I don't think my interest will ever fade....this is my fave PNR series so far!

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Yes SHE does.....she has a true gift, and I am eager to read her other series! She is descriptive, humorous, and truly dedicated in her craft!

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

NOTHING!!!! Tavia does it again!!!!!!

Do you have any additional comments?

Just because this was not my fave of this series, does not mean I did not enjoy it thoroughly.....I did....and am starting #5 right now!!!!

YEAH Jeaniene and Tavia!!

I just LOVE this series!! It is, for me, one that I can (and have) listened to several times!! When I don't know what I want to read, I have a few authors I fall back on, and Jeaniene Frost is one of them. I think the relationship between Cat and Bones is REAL! It is sad and funny and snarky and sexy! Cat is a very head strong warrior type woman and has a hard time listening to and taking the advise from Bones and she always seems to get herself into trouble when she doesn't listen. I'm not saying Bones is right all of the time but.........Cat should trust him more. I have already read the whole series, and I must say.....WHAT A RIDE!! and keep them coming.

Always fun, exciting and sexy as hell

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would definitely recommend this story. It is very funny, intelligently written and suspenseful. I walk dogs for a living and the time goes very quickly while I listen to Jeanien Frost.

What other book might you compare Destined for an Early Grave to and why?

I would compare this with any of Kresley Cole's books, because her books are also very funny, intelligently written and suspenseful.

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't, but I would compare her to Johanna Parker that narrates Sookie Stakehouse series.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but that ok.

voice: yay storyline:...alright

as always, Tavia Gilberts way of reading is spot on perfect. To me, her lending her voice is recommendation enough.

The storyline, however, I feel is starting to run thin. Don't get me wrong, it's not boring or all-too repetitive, it simply seems absurd on occasion. I mean, really? Gone for two months and nothing ever surfaced?
I'll probably dabble into another storyline of cats universe next, for some fresh blood

Zeitverschwendung

Ich mag die Geschichte von Bones und Cat eigentlich sehr. Diesen Band fand ich jedoch anstrengend, was sicher nicht unwesentlich daran liegt, dass Bones und Cat fast die gesamte Zeit einen "Ehekrach" ausfechten. Der artet dermaßen aus, dass der Versöhnungssex erst recht nervtötend war.

Darüber hinaus beschließt Cat (Vorsicht Spoiler)




ohne stichhaltige Gründe, dass sie ein Vampir werden möchte und als ob das nicht schon genug wäre, verwandelt sie sich danach noch in eine Art Superheldin. Das Ganze wird mit den endgültigen Toden von ein paar sympathischen Nebencharacteren gewürzt.

Das Buch hinterlässt einen schalen Nachgeschmack bei mir.

Wer es noch nicht gehört hat liest mMn lieber eine Zusammenfassung und geht zum nächsten Band weiter (der hoffentlich wieder besser ist).

Absolut empfehlenswert - auch auf Englisch

Ich bin ein großer Fan der Night Huntress Serie geworden und kann nur sagen: Auch der 4. Teil ist wieder absolut hörenswert!
Ich habe ab Buch 4 begonnen, die Serie auf Englisch zu hören und kann nur alle ermutigen, es auch zu versuchen! Die Sprecherin ist sehr gut verständlich und ihre Stimme ist meiner Meinung nach sehr passend. Denkt daran – die englische Version gibt es ungekürzt und es sind schon 6 Bücher draußen! ;-)
