Publisher's Summary

Revisit Cat and Bones in this companion anthology to the Night Huntress series, and see what could've happened.
With deleted scenes - some never before seen by the public - and alternate histories, forgotten side plots, additional love scenes, and increased personal revelations, this anthology is the culmination of a decade's worth of hidden work that went into Cat and Bones' story. While writing the fourth book in the series, author Jeaniene Frost, at the insistence of her husband, pursued the idea of getting the first one, Halfway to the Grave, finally published. Paring her stories down to only the scenes that kept the pacing taut and advanced the main plot was a ruthless process.
Though she loved the original versions of the stories, it is sometimes a necessary evil to "kill your darlings", as Stephen King would say. In the end it was worth every strike of the pen - Cat and Bones became a reality. The Night Huntress series went on to be a New York Times best-selling series, winning awards, spawning several spin-off series, and amassing a cult following across the nation.
Here, Jeaniene Frost has amassed all of her extra writings from the first four books that have been heretofore hidden away on old disks and CDs and in long-forgotten emails, and guarded behind password-protected files, to reveal the what-could-have-beens in the lives of Cat, Bones, Mencheres, Vlad, and more.

Outtakes From the Grave (Night Huntress 7.5) Jeaniene Frost/Tavia Gilbert

This is a compilation of deleted scenes, pieces of books and ideas that were either cut out or never made it in to the published versions of the Night Huntress Series. This is one of my all-time favorites and the first Audible book series that really hooked me into the paranormal romance genre. It's smart, sexy, funny and just totally awesome.

Tavia Gilbert is the PERFECT narrator for this series. I love it when a fabulous series ends up being narrated by just the right person to perform it, and this is definitely one of those times. I thank Jeaniene Frost for doing the work to make this anthology happen. This compilation is like a love letter to the fans. I actually started getting a little choked up during the intro. Cat and Bones are as much beloved to me as Harry and Dumbledore, so I can get a little emotional. If you knew me, you would understand the gravity of that statement.

Heat factor is about a 6/10 (if 1 is Jane Austen and 10 is Lora Leigh). The sex is hot and frequent but not to the point where it takes center stage or detracts from the story.

Favorite moments: The short story of when Cat and Denise first met and Juan's unfortunate incident of calling Cat Kitten. The alternate stories before the reunion in book 2 and after the heartbreaking piano scene were great, though I am glad the published versions were the ones that "made it in."

If you love this series half as much as I do, get this now. You will not regret it. If you haven't experienced this series yet........WAIT........WHAT? Go put Halfway to the Grave in your cart right now!! WHAT are you thinking? You don't have time to read reviews!

I was thrilled to see this available on audible, and about kicked myself I didn't notice it for a month! I enjoyed these extra stories, and alternative versions...it was like visiting old friends, I laughed and shed some tears...I was excited for Cat and Bones..and disappointed some times too...The dress shop was HILARIOUS! And I loved the alt middle to book 4 at the end...I hate that this series ended, but I do like that I get to visit these characters in other books and novellas...This set of stories made me want to give this whole series a relisten...and I probably will..it will be the 4th time I think...but who is counting?

I RECOMMEND!!!!!
