Evil humans, evil vampires, one very hot vampire bounty hunter, a disapproving mother and a half-breed vampire hunteress. Great stuff!

Loved it. There were many hilarious moments involving Cat's lethalness, she's a grim reaper or as Bones likes to call her the 'Red Reaper'. There were also some very sweet and passionate moments. Bones was the only one to accept Cat for who she was and what she could do, he was very patient with her.

for relatively flimsy urban fantasy this was pretty good. I will probably continue the series but am not exactly committed to the characters yet. It manages to find a pretty good balance between action and drama.

This book felt like a total guilty pleasure. There was nothing new or original about the story line, and I knew what was mostly going to happen from about half way through. But that didn't really matter because I loved it anyway. Yes, it was a little cheesy in places, but the characters were fun and likeable, there was some wonderful dialog between the two main characters, the action was faced paced and the sex was hot. The were a few nice little plot twists at the end I didn't actually see coming and a nice set up to lead into the next book in the series. I will definitely be picking up the next one, ( )

Cat and Bones had one hell of a start. I'm quite sad it too me so long to get into this series. It's quite excellent. I'm glad I have the next book lined up and ready to go. ( )

Not bad for a first novel. The characters were funny, and the action was pretty evenly paced. I am glad I just found this series, I would have been irritated having to wait for the second book. ( )

Jeaniene Frost takes Urban Fantasy head on and makes the genre her own with a winning blend of humor, sex, and real emotion that will leave readers eager for more.

Jeaniene Frost is dynamite. Halfway to the Grave is dark, sexy, and supernatural, blended with a touch of humor. I dare you to disagree--Cat will have you staked in five seconds flat.

Take one half-human/half-vampire female with serious anger and parental issues, add in a sexy ancient vampire with his own agenda, and you have the makings for a truly combustible series. Sign me up for the sequel!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061245089, Mass Market Paperback)

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.
