Publisher's Summary

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.
Gregor believes Cat is his and won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced … even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

Nearly put me in one!

I found this to be the highest octane ride off all the NH novels including the NHW ones too. The friction between Cat and Bones and the pace of the action had me riveted on the edge of my seat for a large portion of the plot. I enjoy this series immenseley and the peripheral characters have grown to such a degree that this book only enhances our knolwedge and affection of them. There are some fabulous one liners that had me bursting in to laughter. There are as many locations as a Bond film, tonnes of action, romance, and plot twists and turns. The rules are changing and the scope for Cat seems limitless as does Bones' love..

From the audio aspect I would have to lower the rating a little, as mentioned before in earlier NH book reviews, this narrator does not do Bones well. It is the actual accent and mispronounciation of some words that grate often. Over time it has improved a little or I may have gotten used to it. Cat, however, comes to life and I anchor well to her through this narrator. The other characters are fine.
