Publishers Format: Mass Market Paperback ,
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.
First Line(s): The vampire pulled on the chains restraining him to the cave wall.

My Review: Short and sweet because I am certain the baby is about to wake up and I am determined to hammer out this review. I liked it! Didn't hate it, but was able to put it down, which I was not able to do with the other books. I adore Cat and Bones and they remain one of my top 5 couples but this book lacked the humor and steam I have grown use to in the past. With that said I look forward to reading the next book in this series and seeing where my favorite characters go.
My Rating: Solid 3 stars
Until next time...
