    Description

    Danger waits on both sides of the grave…

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous “ally”—the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war—to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

    Love in vein: listen to more novels in the Night Huntress series.

    Very fun

    I cry quite easily when reading a book or watching a movie but I don't laugh easily (to the point my husband often tell me I don't have any sens humour) but listening to this book, I did. I smiled a lot and I even burst out laughing a few time. I was very agreeably surprised of the reference to Galaxy Quest, a movie so few people seems to know about.

    LOVE THIS SERIES

    This series is one of the best I’ve read/listen to... the characters are in depth and the narrator does such a great job at portraying them you'll actually be left thinking 'Ha, that's something Vlad would say' etc... If you have read/listen to the first 4 books of the Night Huntress Series and the 2 World Huntress Series it's a must, while each book is easily a standalone story, they definitely run on from one another. If this is one of the first series you've gotten, I also liked the Sookie Stackhouse series, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs series and the Drake Chronicles (It's taken me a long time to find some good vampire series, I wished people would write what else they liked in their comments)... Happy reading, can't wait for the Vlad World Huntress book to come out...

    Bloody Hell.. I loved it!

    For all the Cat and Bones fans this book will not disappoint. Cat and Bones are well into their relationship so this book really delves into family/friend relationships, acceptance, and unconditional love. ~~

    I laughed out loud and shed many tears through out the book. The passion between Cat and Bones is still present and the love scene took my breath away. I still favor Chapter 32 in One Foot in The Grave, but this one probably comes in second. ~~

    I have been spoiled with the intense heat, lust and passion between Cat and Bones over the last few books and I felt like it was lessened in this one. I am sure this is because they are solid in their relationship. The ups and downs in their relationship that blasted passion and lust through out the pages aren't present in this one.~~

    Tavia still rocked the narration. I do think she went a bit overboard in some of the scenes..She overpowered some chapters that were written so beautifully that merely reading the words would have produced a heart stopping reaction. ~~

    I have started my count down for the next C&B this fall.. But I guarantee I will listen to this audiobook over and over again until then.

    ~Happy Listening!~

    A fan forever of both Author and Narrator

    I am totally addicted to Cat and Bones. I also find myself looking forward to hearing from the supporting characters like Vlad who cracks me up or Spades cool control and her P.I.T.A. mother. Jeaniene Frost draws you in within the first sentence but Tavia Gilbert presents the story to you with a punch. Jeaniene builds great drama, creates amazing characters and presents a great story. If you are new to this series it is a must to start from the beginning but you will NOT be disapointed. Many characters are brought back from previous books so you will get lost. Credits or money well spent.

    And the punches keep on rolling...

    The fifth installment of a "Cat and Bones" story that is at least as good as its predicesors, if not better in a couple of instances.
    As previous reviews have noted, if you are new to the series and enjoy paranormal romance that embraces the dark with passion and the light with comedy, then this would be a series for you. Start with book 1, Halfway to the Grave, to book four and then move over to the "world" installments (First Drop of Crimson and Eternal Kiss of Darkness) before delving into this, you won't regret it.
    But to this story itself, it is fabulous. The angst between Cat and Bones is gone and for this listener, I welcomed the change. They were strong in their love for eachother, all doubt and misgivings gone. The story development is strong; I laughed out loud (Vlad is by far my favourite) and felt tears dripping down my nose, it is that good.
    The narrator, Tavia Gilbert, does a remarkable performance however sometimes her want to feel the emotion in the scene can sometimes obtrusive.

    Funtastical :)

    Cat and Bones have figured out how to work together and trust each other. The maturation of their unity just makes them all the most endearing and one of the best couples in this genre. In this book, Jeaniene Frost resolves several storylines such as what is going on with Don and how will Cat survive her ghoulish enemy? This installment also starts some new and hilariously twisted storylines. All, I will say is Cat???s mom is ridiculous, and the Night Huntress World would be a lot blander without her! Tavia Gilbert does a great job with all of the different accents. I love these books and cannot wait for the next one.

    Great book, Great Narrator!

    I love the Cat and Bones series! The books are great, and the narrator reads with so much passion, she is amazing. I would recomend to read the the first 4 Night Huntress books, then the 2 Night Huntress World books (also amazing), and then this one, as this book references both Night Huntress World books!
    Enjoy!

    Caution this series is ADDICTING!! :-)

    I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series. The characters are so well written they truly come alive... I was surprised that this could even be better than the previous books but Jeaniene Frost delivers... I really have only one complaint... once I start listening I don't want to stop...can be irritating if you get to work and have to stop listening at a really good spot !!! Arrggh hahah but it makes for wonderful commutes.. I live in LA and now I see traffic snarls as more Cat and Bones time yayyyyy

    Loved it!

    Just loved it. The best so far. The narrator was fabulous. I got the book in my kindle too. It almost seem to be the last book. She closed everything up and we got to see some of her characters from previous books. The only one I felt needed a book was Vlad. I hope she continues the series.

    Love love the Night Huntress series

    Another excellent installment of the amazing romance of Cat and Bones. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys a strong female lead, humor, wit, a sweet love story all mixed up in the world of the paranormal. Spiced up with steamy love scenes, Jeaniene Frost hits all the right notes.

    Bones and Kat are back!

    This series is constantly good and I am so happy that there are more coming. This time the enemy and the plot are more complicated and they take quite a twist and turn... I really enjoyed reading all the characters I have read in the previous book and how they do their own things. Now I'm so familiar with them, through all the previous books, they seem like old friends.

    It might throw off first-time readers but I don't think anyone would start reading from this book. If you are please go back to the first book and read them in order! I also recommend reading the related Night Huntress World books published before this book, too.

    Great read cannot wait to read more!

    This Side of the Grave

    Und wieder einmal kann ich nur sagen, dass Cat & Bones einfach mega zusammen sind. Ich könnt die beiden einfach immer und jeden Tag lesen/hören, und sie begleiten, als sei es eine TV Serie. *** Die Geschichte nimmt weiter ihren Lauf und es gibt nach wie vor den ein oder anderen, der mit Cat nicht so zufrieden ist. Und das müssen sie wieder gemeinsam herausfinden, wie sie denn damit umgehen. Ich fand es mega, dass wir in diesem Teil auch wieder mal Majestic zu Gesicht bekommen haben, denn die Frau ist einfach nur Badass - in der Kombi mit Cat wirklich unschlagbar. Auch ihre Freunde dürfen nicht fehlen, wobei ich mir etwas mehr von Spade & Denise gewünscht hätte, aber sie sind auf jeden Fall alle mit dabei. Bin auch schon gespannt, wie sich das in dem nächsten Teil ändern wird bzw. weiter entwickelt. Cat & Bones sind mittlerweile ein so eingespieltes Team, dass ich einfach immer nur glücklich bin, wenn die zwei zusammensind. Das Vertrauen ineinander ist stärker denn je und sie vertrauen auch auf ein wir. Für mich persönlich hätte es ruhig noch etwas mehr sexy Szenen geben können, aber die beiden schaffen das so auch :) Nach einigen Twists und Wendungen, war ich am Ende aber dann doch wirklich baff - denn die letzten paar Zeilen, was hier passiert ist, damit hätte ich nicht gerechnet. Darum muss ich jetzt sofort weiter zum nächsten Buch.

    picking up the pace

    after my disappointment over the last Night Huntress book, this one is finally picking up its usual pace. A new storyline, unforeseen plottwist plus Tavia Gilberts expert reading made it really entertaining. (allthough, Miss Gilbert, perhaps wind down on the sex gasping a little?)

    Worthy sequel!

    In their fifth novel, Cat and Bones are finally facing Apollyon. Plus Cat still has to deal with some new abilities and her life as a full-blooded vampire now. I liked the role Marie played in this book, she's so scary and Gilbert really gives her an edge with this raspy voice. What I loved most was that Frost has found her humor again. Cat really knows how to say the most embarrassing things which made me laugh out loud a few times. Bones is is usual charming self, I was sort of missing Ian though. Maybe there will be more of him in the next novel. And I also think he deserves his own spin-off.

    In order to keep things interesting between our married couple, Frost seems to feel some pressure to come up with new and original ideas in each subsequent novel. I wonder what they will "try out" next and hope they'll still be the characters I came to love so much.

    I know I can usually just rant on about how amazing and wonderful Tavia Gilbert reads the Night Huntress books. And she does, really. But I don't know which fool told her to take it up one notch because that was so not necessary. Now, when she read a love scene, all this panting and moaning... well, I don't know, some things should be better left for imagination. Otherwise, I feel like I'm listening to porn, like an intruder in Cat's and Bones' sex life, which I definitely don't want to be. And when there was some intense fighting going on, her panting reminded me of .... *argh*! Way over the top! You know how it goes: doing more with less. That applies here too.

    This Side of the Grave gives us fans all that we need and are used of from a Night Huntress novel: heart-stopping action, laughing-out-loud humor, tear-wrenching heartache and lots of new developments in the paranormal world the author created. I loved it and can't wait to get on to the next book!
