Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
-Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!
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.
Halfway to the Grave is the first novel in the Night Huntress series by the amazing Jeaniene Frost. I just realized I did not have a review for this, and was shocked. Mainly because this is one of my favorite series, ever.
If you have yet to hear of this series, you must not be a huge fan of any vampire related, Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance, because I can`t imagine anyone not knowing this series who is. If you haven`t read this series yet, I suggest after reading this, that you head straight to the book store and purchase a copy. You will not be sorry.
First off, let me introduce you to one of my favorite character duos ever.
Meet Cat. Half Vampire, Half Human, whose real name is Catherine Crawfield, but you better not call her that, she just may kill you. Cat has a pure hate for vampires, being that one is her deadbeat of a father who raped her mother and ruined her mothers life. On one of Cats night out hunting, she enters a bar looking for a vamp to kill, but ended up being drove to a secluded spot with another male, only to get captured. During which both Cats and her captures life changes.
Meet Bones. Sexy bounty hunter slash vampire. Loved by all the ladies, and feared by all the men. Taken from Frost's website--Bones. After his transition, he woke up in the natives’ burial ground surrounded by bones. “…for from bones I rose and Bones I became…” --
Bones is 217 years old, in a 24 year old body. He never thought he'd want to be tied down to a female, but this one is too fierce and beautiful, and he must have her.

Without giving too much away, I just want to say how amazing this book was. I can't stress enough that it's a series that has to be read for all Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance fans. It has everything from, romance to thrilling action to gore. I haven't heard a bad word of any of Frost's books, and it's without a doubt going to be a hit for a very long time, along with the spin-off series called The Night Huntress World. I guess it's
obvious that I would recommend this series. I can't wait for This Side of The Grave to be released... It's going to be electric!

I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance
