Up From the Grave (Night Huntress #7) by Jeaniene Frost (Review)
There’s always one more grave to dig.
Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…
A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear— will be hovering on the edge of the grave.
“Can we move this along?" a bored voice stated. "I have places to be and people to shag."
"Ian, I'm not going to hug you," I stated as I approached him. "I know you like this better."
With that, I slapped him hard enough to rock his head to the side. When he'd straightened, he flashed me a wicked grin.
"Finally, you give me what I want. Knew you loved me, Reaper.”
I cant believe that this is the end of Cat and Bones s story even though I am sure they will appear in other Night prince books or in books about other Night huntress characters. I just love Cats POV. She can be a challenge sometimes, with her stubborness or her being naive in most difficult moments, but she changed so much from that bitter young girl who kills vampires with prejudice we met in Halfway to the grave. And I am going to miss Bones, one of my favorite vampires of all time, so powerful, intelligent, cunning, hot and so in love with Cat that love is pouring from every page. An I am ceartainly going to miss his talking British (bloody sods) :) I cant believe I am going to say this, but I will miss Ian most of all. He brought so much humor to this series and he gave us someone to hate when we needed it the most. And although he was a jerk most of the time, he is always charming and is always there to help. I really hope he gets his book. There are other characters I am going to miss, like Mencheres and his quiet support, Tate and his bickering with Bones, Spade and Denise, Dave, Juan and Cooper, Fabian, even Anette and Justine because they all brought something to this series. Up from the grave is a great ending, some big surprises await you, a lot of blood and heads flying but in the end, everything is as it should be.
"Everyone... we'll see you again, some soon, some later, but as vampires say, until again."
