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.

Tavia is a true artist, I love listening to her..she is great...she brought this whole series to life for me..I would listen to anything she narrated!!

I wish they would make this series into a movie!
Any additional comments?
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?

A MUST for any JF fan
Wow, just wow!!!! I really enjoyed the authors notes and reasoning why the scenes never made it into the original books. Reading all the deleted or cut scenes took me back through all the books without having to re read them all over again. This was most definitely a treat for her Fans, thanks you Mrs. Frost!!

I brought this based on other readers reviews but I honestly was not expecting much. I thought this was an attempt to get more money off the readers by feeding them scraps left over from the series. How wrong was I. These outtakes were not scraps ....they could have been & in my view should have been in the original series. They add depth to the story, all well written & are not any 'left overs' on a cutting room floor. To say I loved it is an understatement. Nothing left me disappointed & I loved the author's comments. A real gem
