If you thought you learned more about the dangerous and sexy alpha vampire, Bones, in the USA Today bestselling scorcher, THE OTHER HALF OF THE GRAVE, you haven't seen anything yet...

Cat disappeared from Bones’ life to protect him, but this Master vampire will keep his promise to find her.

Two hundred years of bounty hunting made Bones the best at what he does, yet it's still taken him four long years to find Cat, the half vampire now known as the "Red Reaper." There's a price on Cat's head, and not even her job as a secret government agent can save her. Only Bones can. But has time hardened Bones too much to love again? Or will his passion for Cat burn through every obstacle—alive, undead, or otherwise—between them?

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Night Huntress series comes a fresh, new perspective on the origin saga of Cat and Bones, in Bones' own words...

"Cat and Bones are combustible together." — Charlaine Harris

I loved this book! I have been a huge fan of this series for a very long time. I have read the original books in the series twice so I know the story. I had no idea how much I needed Bones’s point of view. But apparently, I did. I started this book in the afternoon and did not put it down. I clung to every word because even though I already knew the story, I didn’t know how Bones saw things.

I would recommend reading this series in order. This is the second book from Bones’s point of view which mirrors One Foot in the Grave which is the same basic story but from Cat’s perspective. At the start of the book, Cat and Bones are apart and I had assumed that it was a tough time for both of them but actually seeing what Bones was going through broke my heart a bit. There were some pretty exciting scenes and I loved seeing just what Bones thought during some pivotal moments.

Will Watt did an amazing job with the audiobook. I think that his voice suits Bones’s character perfectly and I loved how he was able to bring this story to life. I thought that his voice was very pleasant and he added the perfect about of emotion to his reading. This is an audiobook that I know I will be listening to again in the not-so-distant future. I am positive that his narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story.

I would highly recommend this book to others. I loved getting to see a story that I already love from a different perspective. I had such a great time getting to spend a few hours with characters that I have loved for years. I cannot wait to read more of Jeaniene Frost’s work.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Nancy Yost Literary Agency (NYLA).

  1. I am glad that you enjoyed this one here. When I get in the mood to do a reread of the series, I will read these books from Bones Perspective.

    Great review!

  2. So you’re kind of making me want to do a series reread – and like I need rereads right now – haha! I read the first 5 or 6 and LOVED them. Bones was one of my all-time faves. Then I lost sight of them and never moved on. I feel I’d need to go back now and start over but for Bones, it might be worth it. Especially after reading your review.

  3. I really do want to start this series (at some point). I know some readers consider an alternate POV book repetitive, but I love getting to see the events through another character’s eyes.

  4. Yes, love this series, too, and getting Bones POV is the cherry on top.

    Hey, did you know your opening paragraph was quoted in the Ilona Andrews’ newsletter when they touted this book? Very cool!

  5. I’ve heard good things about this series and I love that there is such depth to the characters. Next time I’m in the mood for something about out of my comfort zone I’m looking forward to trying this series.
