One of the best books in this series. A thrilling read, written in a brilliant way and with figures that make you yearn for more. If you don´t know the author and this series yet, this is the best way to get started. This is one of the books I literally inhaled while reading. A thrilling plot, a haunting story, and two main figures who blow your mind. What a great novel.

Some things won´t stay buried – at grave´s end. It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield´s life. With her undead love Bones at her side, she´s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat´s worn disguise after disguise keeps her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover´s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger. As if that wasn´t enough, a woman from Bones´ past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cats about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she´s learned as a special agent won´t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself – and Bones – from a fate worse than the grave. 
Cat has kept her job and is chasing and killing evil vampires on behalf of the government. She is the boss of a probably unique team and also married to the love of her life, vampire Bones. But her disguise as a decoy flies up and Cat herself is now the target itself. Now one of the most powerful and oldest vampire masters, Cleopatra´s daughter Patra has her sights on her and Patra is no joke. Between the two women, a fight of the special class flares up and Patra has to learn in a cruel way, what it means to get involved with a half-vampire.

Jeaniene Frost has a slightly weird sense of humor that you notice in every sentence and every word. The darling lip of Cat is an experience in itself. The author´s style of speech is gloriously ironic, almost sarcastic, and the author is great at verbal attacks. In doing so, she sometimes uses words that probably cannot be found in any dictionary in the world. The vocabulary is individual, imaginative, and just wonderful. The plot itself is incredibly brutal, extremely bloody, and at the same time so erotic and passionate that it literally takes your breath away when you are reading it. The novel combines the elements of vampire, fantasy, and eroticism brilliantly.

Cat and Bones have evolved and made changes as well. Cat is stronger than ever. Not only physically, but also internally. Bones himself makes the biggest and strongest change. His powerful charisma is amplified by a special event many times over and his appearance changes due to an experience caused by Patra. The advancement and changes take nothing from the credibility of the individual figures. It will make them even better, more convincing, and look absolutely realistic. 

An incredible great book. More bloody, brutal, and passionate than its predecessors. This is a highly erotic, dark, and incredibly imaginative novel that captivates you with a great plot and a unique love story. Read!

Happy reading
