Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband, Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war.…
A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives - and those of everyone they hold dear - will be hovering on the edge of the grave.

Missed Kat and Bones
There is a new addition that I would have never thought of! Please, please let there be more of this series coming soon, It can't wait as long as we did for this installment for the next. Tavia's narration is second to none and she really brings this book to life compared to another populare series; the Black Dagger Brotherhood which I don't really like but everyone else seem to love, maybe it me but I think it's the BDB's narrator (I think he's just awful, I think Robert Petkoff would have done the series justice). This series is simply amazing, for me this is the best series I've listened to and would recommend it to anyone. Everyone I've suggested this series to couldn't believe how well written and read it is. The twists, turns and tie-ins between the other books are handled so well I would like the opportunity to meet Ms. Frost just to pick her brain. If you like the Night Huntress series, You will not be disappointed with this book.

Still worth a read but a bit lazy
I’ve read the night huntress series maybe 3-4 times so far. When I was in high school I was obsessed. When I was in college it was still entertaining. And now I listened to them on the metro all in a row, including the spin offs. Frost is very very good at writing the initial chapter of each story but after awhile they become a bit repetitive. I may not have enjoyed this book as much as the others, but it’s still a good book. And the series is one of my all time favorites.
After this point beware of SPOILERS
Problems I had with this book:
-ok so we aren’t going to explore her daughters powers? You introduce a brand new cool species and you don’t go beyond mentioning its existence? This is just like how frustrating I was with some aspects of the Vlad spin off.
-the whole book is just recycled storylines from her other books in this series!!!! Cat KNEW bones had the regenerative power and she still fell into a hopeless depression convinced he was dead? Even if he was dead her reaction was quite pathetic. Lost respect for Cat. Her flaws used to make sense and when she was in the dark I usually was as well. But now I couldn’t stop thinking “Cat you idiot do you have zero ability to see below the surface of things?? You yourself have used the shapeshifter ruse SEVERAL TIMES AND YOU STILL FALL FOR IT???”
-I’m so tired of the stupid protection-feminism-logic argument. CAN WE NOT. Just... please be more creative
-many of the characters who I once thought so creative and thought would get interesting back stories such as Marie, Ian and Fabian were just... static. I feel like fans wanted another book so bad that Jeaniene gave them what they (we) wanted. This has happened to almost all of my favorite series.
While these points seem harsh I don’t regret the purchase. I won’t read or listen to it again because it’s more of a listing of events then character development and whatnot. If you’ve been a fan of the series since the beginning as I have it’s worth a read. Just for closure :) thank you Jeaniene Frost for such a wonderful universe.

What did you like most about Up from the Grave?
It was a suitable end to good series. Complex well written story as always.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Up from the Grave?
The scene on the jetty where Bones and Kat meet their nemesis.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, I couldn't listen to it at one sitting - the scene on the jetty and the immediate aftermath was so well written, I found it stressful and I had a little weep - I had to put the story aside for a little while.
Any additional comments?
It was a good end to a very well written series - the action scenes were strong and the book made me laugh and cry. If I have one negative it would be the narrator who as read all 7 books in the series sometimes forgot that the 'hero' Bones was English cockney and read him as upper crust which I found confusing but the slips did not detract from a powerful story. I know I will read the whole series.

this chapter in bones and cats story is fantastic. I knew the Madigan storyline had to be coming and would no doubt be good but this book held no punches and I loved it.
there are lots of surprises in this book, secrets kept and revealed from a fair few characters, if you're like me, some you'll guess and others will catch you out but all make for a really great read.
I sincerely hope this isn't the last we've heard from cat and bones, life will be truely dull without them.
