Originally appeared in the print anthology The Bite Before Christmas.

'Tis the season to join Cat and Bones for some holiday cheer in this Night Huntress novella by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost.

They were looking forward to a normal holiday—at least as "normal" as it gets for vampires Cat and Bones and their otherworldly friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a mysterious stranger shows up and reveals long-buried secrets that threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer ... and lives.

here's the jeaniene frost i know and love!
book 5 and 6 have both been lowkey disappointments, so who would have thought to find the old characters i'd fallen in love with in this short novella? and yet, here we are.
this is the best plot we've had since 'destined for an early grave', and i'll forever be bitter that it could have been turned in an actual novel. all the character developments we could've had, all the plot twists... sigh. what a waste. and this is also the reason why i didn't give the book 5 stars: i get that it's a short story, but the narration felt rushed and somehow incomplete; there were a lot of elements and important informations that were just thrown there without further explications or developments, and in a proper book they would have been great.
bones's development is absolutely perfect, i loved him here. and his backstory was so sad, yet i'm glad he found another member of hid family. i loved seeing his vulnerable side, and yet he stays true to himself, remaining the same strong, fearless bitch we know even in times of struggle. boy, i love him so much.
cat is her old ruthless, impulsive, witty self, and yet each new book she strikes me as more and more mature.
i've never particularly appreciated ian, and yet i really liked him here. he's one of the few characters who hasn't suffered from the writing's deterioration in the last few books, and yet here we can finally see the goof qualities he has: he's loyal, he's witty, he's smart, and maybe - maybe - actually pleasant. what a surprise!
it was nice to see denise finally recovering from the damsel in distress role she's played since her solo novel: i used to like her back when she was introduced, but ever since she and spade got together she seemed to lost herself. she doesn't have a big role, but she's finally useful again and she actually pronounces a few lines. spade is annoying as usual, but i've noticed that the author doesn't even make him talk, just keeping him there for no reason at all. both mencheres and kira don't have big roles either, but it amuses me that after mencheres's solo novel kira's usefulness seems to have expired: she literally doesn't even talk in this, she's so anonymous that i forgot about her presence. this could have been annoying, but she was useless and unnecessary even in her own book, so that's okay. mrs frost also finally remembered about annette again, and i liked seeing her vulnerable, honest side, and the implications of her love for bones.

Night Huntress 6.5. Urban fantasy.
Bones gets a surprise on his birthday. A previously unknown brother. But something strange is going on and it’s up to Cat and Ian to figure out the full story.

Best read as part of the series.
It’s got action, suspense, humor and vampires....so blood too. A wonderful addition to the series.
I listened to the audio version narrated by Tavia Gilbert. Tavia had distinctly different voices for Cat, Bones and Ian. Not only voices, but timing, and cadence as well. Extremely well done and entertaining because of it. ( )

This is a short but it's jammed packed with all the elements I loved from the full length book. Bones and Cat are under attack again and it's their strong commitment and fierce love that sees them through, when his surprise birthday present becomes sinister. ( )
