One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost {Review}

One Grave at a Time: A Night Huntress Novel

Mass Market Paperback, 358 pages
Published August 30th 2011 by Avon Books (Mm)

The grave is one wrong step away.

Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving--leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity--forever. But how do you kill a killer who's already long dead?

First Line(s): "Donald Bartholomew Williams, get your ass back here now!"

Favorite Line(s): "I've watched you barely escape death several times, and each instance killed me a little inside. They may be dormant now, but we have enemies both cunning and cruel. Knowing you possess the power to defeat most of them doesn't threaten me, luv. It relieves me to my very core."

My Review: Where was the smoking hot sex scenes?!?!?

Okay, okay I know there is a lot more to the story than Bones and Cat going at it but I am not going to lie.... it's a big part for me!

Hi my name is Tena and I must be a horndog! I can handle that.

Okay, off to the actual review of One Grave at a Time... it was just alright for me. I am such a hufe fan of Jeaniene Frost and this series that I have such high hopes every time a new book comes out. Maybe too high? I found the plot to be clever and fresh ( at least to me) but I think I have hit a Paranormal wall. Maybe I have just moved on from this genre?

I would never take away from the hard work of an author and there are many awesome things about this book... the same amazing cast of characters are all back in this installment.

I just left this book not really having much to take with me. There is no love loss!

With that said I think I am going to take a few months off from this genre and start fresh in the new year!

My Rating: Photobucket

Until next time...Happy Reading!

It's too bad that this book didn't live up to your expectations. I tend to find that I have the same problem with a series that drags on. Sometimes I wonder if it isn't just better to limit a series to a few books. But, at the same time, you don't want to say goodbye to the characters that you know and love.
