It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’s past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.

In this third installment of the Night Huntress series, there are more deadly enemies than you can shake a stake at. Cat, Bones, and the team are always right smack in the middle of the action and danger, and I love it.

It’s funny - I went from not really caring for the characters in book one to loving them in book 2 to being totally invested in their lives by book 3. I adore Cat and Bones - separately and as a couple - and I love being reunited with familiar characters each time I pick up one of these books. I also liked being introduced to new characters, some of whom I know will become favourites if they make return appearances.

A lot changed in book 3. The dynamics of the group are changing, and it’s interesting to see how different people react to the changes. There were so many twists, turns, and surprises, it was hard to know who to trust at times, but it made it that much more exiting.

Even though I love the action in these books - and there was a lot of it in this one, with most of it being wonderfully frightening and gruesome - I also love that there’s a lot of heart. I genuinely feel like I know these characters now, so when they’re in pain, you really feel it. Whether it’s heartache, anger, fear, or something else, it’s easy to get drawn in and get emotional over what’s going on. You don’t really expect to get teary-eyed in a paranormal book, but I sure did, and more than once!

Funny, action-packed, sexy, and surprising, At Grave’s End is a great third installment of what’s quickly becoming one of my favourite series.
