This was so much fun to read! I didn't care much for Cat in the last book as she came across as too young and way to whiney for my liking. It's been four years in the book timeline since then and now she's all grown up and leading her own team of vampire hunters...sans Bones. She's still not anywhere near Kate Daniels or Mercy Thompson, she's still way too young and inexperienced for that, but I enjoyed her adventure just the same.

This is a fun series that I'll definitely move higher on my TBR after this book. It's definitely adult material, so if raunchy sex scenes and the occasional "F" bomb is offensive, you might want to steer clear. Otherwise, I highly recommend this one! ( )

The library doesn't have the first book in the series, but that doesn't keep a reader from jumping in and enjoying this series! From what I can tell the first book has events that happened four or five years in the past. Hopefully that doesn't happen with book 3. Definitely a series to follow! ( )

Loved it! I love love love this series. The first was good, but this installment was so much better. I'm in love with Cat and Bones's relationship - they are such a good couple. The further development of the team member friendships is very welcome - they are such good guys, and Cat needed to be less of a loner. I loved the vampire politics and the further exploration of the ghouls - the world is getting more fleshed out and it's great and intriguing. I laughed out loud numerous times, which is always welcome. I can't wait to read the third installment! Keep 'em coming. ( )

I am totally and completely in love with this series and with Bones, or course. This is the second book in the 'Night Huntress' series and it was just as good as the first. The plot moves quick and most definitely has enough heat to keep you reading. Ahem, and contains the infamous "chapter 32"...hint: read it, its awesome! I don't think I have ever read anything that steamy in my life. Everything about this book was awesome, what can I say. I also hope that Tate gets the stick out of his butt. Just saying.... ( )

I like many things about this series, such as interesting characters and unusual twists on vampire lore, but I strongly dislike listening to the soft porn sex scenes, which make it feel as though I'm reading erotica rather than urban fantasy.

If I was reading the book in print, I could just skip over those sections, but I'm listening to the audiobook version, which makes skipping more tricky. There's nothing more embarrassing than having a graphic sex scene suddenly begin while I'm waiting at the bank teller's window or waiting for a red light with my windows down! The sex scenes are also unrealistically perfect, without so much as a single elbow accidentally bumping into a nose.

If the sex scenes were less frequent, less graphic, and more realistic, I'd give the book four stars. ( )

Book description
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head - wanted: dead or half-alive - means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever ... and Bones won't let her get away again.
