Wow! Lots happened in this book and since Cat is planning to quit her job it should be interesting to see how they keep her co-workers part of the story and continue the story line. Looking forward to finding out! ( )

The third installment of the Night Huntress series. This one was action packed, but I thought things got a little muddled in the middle there - like why did we have to talk about Tate getting shipped off to interrogate for Homeland Security if it wasn't actually going to happen? Just as motivation to change over Juan? I was just confused. I also thought it was weird for Cat to talk about quitting her job and then to just leave that completely unmentioned for the remainder of the book. Despite the fact that this is a series, it felt like a loose end. Of course the sex scenes with Bones and Cat are HOT as always. I also LOVED the introduction of the character Vlad Tepesh! Holy hell, he was both hilarious AND badass, what a potent combo. Finding out more about Mencheres was very interesting, and seeing further into the world of the vampires was illuminating, if not slightly disturbing (the feudalism thing with the street kids kind of freaked me out - I mean, is it really a choice for them?) Cat didn't do too many dumb things that I wanted to scream at her for, so bonus there. And the Justina - Rodney hookup? Can I say I just about howled over that one. Wicked.

It ended a little too abruptly for my taste, but overall it was a solid installment of the series. Can't wait for the next one. ( )

Eh. A bit disappointed. Found myself reading more to finish and be done than because I was enjoying it/wanted to see what happened next. ( )

Synopsis: Bones and his grandsire join forces to battle Patra (grandsire's wife). One of the trusted few turns out to be a traitor; Cat's mother becomes more accepting of vampires in general. And Bones has powers that even he doesn't expect.
Review: More brain candy with a decent plot - murder, mayhem, sex with the addition of zombies and wraiths. Can't wait to see what fantasy creatures are coming next. ( )

Oh. Dear. God. Am I reading Anita Blake? Oh. Im not.

Do I want to read book four? No. Will I? Probably in hopes that it gets better.

What started off in the first book as a read that was fantastic, interesting and had great character building has become a train wreck. Each book gets worse, with more garbage plots, loopholes and more awkward exclamations of love from the books' romantic leads.

First off, this whole book reads like a fan fiction, and people have abilities..like flying..that make me want to just stop reading. Honestly? Bones can fly? Bloody hell. I mean, the whole sex thing between them is old. They spend so little time getting to know one another, Bones has bumped uglies with every female character in the books thus far, and Cat flounces around the whole time throwing tempertantrums about how things arent going her way.

Speaking of Cat: I hate her. As a main character shes selfish and needy. She whines when she doesnt get her way, she ignores her best friend most of the time, gets everyone's lives fucked up, and even has the military base moved TWICE. Wait, THREE times. *head desk* She doesnt even seem to feel guilty about this.

And her ablities at the beginning? They're multiplying and now shes stronger than most vampires while still being a half-breed. She can take down a whole gang of vampires now, when in the first book she had issues with one on one? Okay, so shes more skilled and pumped up on vamp blood, but STILL. No real sense of cohesion here.

Bones and Cat are way too much into one another, speaking lovely words to one another in pretty much the most ridiculous times. "Oh Cat, I love you and blah blah..so lets kill some zombies!" Really? REALLY?! And their constant boning while people are within hearing distance? If I were a character in this book, Id have already staked/dismembered/buried Cat because shes annoying and I would get sick of their boinking noises.

Bones miraculously comes back from the dead..because he was just faking it..sorta..due to his newly aquired abilities..well..wtf? Just wtf. Sorry ladies and gents but Frost needs a new editor because this shouldnt have been added to the book. CUT!


Ill read the next one..but the book must lack:
1) Anal sex
2) Cat being selfish, confrontational or arrogant
3) Cat being cool and accepting of Bones' sexual history - love or not, if a guy still kisses an ex on the lips and you're okay with it? HAHA. Unrealistic.

It must have:
1) More secondary character development
2) Decluttering of characters - we have about 50 characters who pop up to say something witty but do nothing for the plot.
3) Bones' next abilities must be not only realistic, but possible within the realm of PHYSICS
4) If there is sex, make it less pornish. What happened to the loving, sensual Bones? No anal, biting or freakly S&M.
