One Foot in the Grave

One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, #2)One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Four years ago, Cat abandoned her lover Bones, as well as her former life to join a secret branch of the U.S. government that was formed to hunt vampires. She did it thinking it was the only way she'd be able to save Bones from the men that were threatening her.

Now, however, she's facing Bones' sire Ian, as well as a contract on her life, when Bones suddenly reappears in her life. She is overjoyed to see him, but she knows it still won't work. Or will it?

In the second book to the Night Huntress series, we get a lot more Cat and Bones action, more fighting, and some awesome new characters, in Don, Juan, Tate, Denise, and Annette. We also get to see more into the vampire world with glimpses of Ian, Spade, and Mencheres.

I love this book, and honestly, I think it's my favorite of the whole series. It's the only copy I have of the series that's literally falling apart with how many times I've read this.

This book is where we really get to see how Cat and Bones feel about each other, and heh, there's one certain scene where it's really obvious. If you don't know what I'm talking about, pick up the book. You won't regret it, if just for that scene. ;)

We also get to meet what will become some key characters in later books. Don is the head of the governmental operation that Cat is the main "fighter" for. Tate is one of the men who follows her, who also happens to be in love with her, and Juan is another one of the followers, who is obsessed with women (this is not an overstatement. He's really that obsessed). Annette is one of the first vampires Bones ever changed, and Denise is Cat's best friend.

This book picks up in an interesting spot, because when I picked up the book, I thought it would pick up immediately after the last book ended, but it doesn't; it picks up four years later. Which in truth, is a very good thing, since it develops the characters, as well as the scenes more.

All in all, as I said, this is my favorite book of the series. If you haven't read the series, pick up the first book, and be prepared for the magnificent sequel.
