This series is one of the best I’ve read/listen to... the characters are in depth and the narrator does such a great job at portraying them you'll actually be left thinking 'Ha, that's something Vlad would say' etc... If you have read/listen to the first 4 books of the Night Huntress Series and the 2 World Huntress Series it's a must, while each book is easily a standalone story, they definitely run on from one another. If this is one of the first series you've gotten, I also liked the Sookie Stackhouse series, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs series and the Drake Chronicles (It's taken me a long time to find some good vampire series, I wished people would write what else they liked in their comments)... Happy reading, can't wait for the Vlad World Huntress book to come out...

For all the Cat and Bones fans this book will not disappoint. Cat and Bones are well into their relationship so this book really delves into family/friend relationships, acceptance, and unconditional love. ~~
I laughed out loud and shed many tears through out the book. The passion between Cat and Bones is still present and the love scene took my breath away. I still favor Chapter 32 in One Foot in The Grave, but this one probably comes in second. ~~
I have been spoiled with the intense heat, lust and passion between Cat and Bones over the last few books and I felt like it was lessened in this one. I am sure this is because they are solid in their relationship. The ups and downs in their relationship that blasted passion and lust through out the pages aren't present in this one.~~
Tavia still rocked the narration. I do think she went a bit overboard in some of the scenes..She overpowered some chapters that were written so beautifully that merely reading the words would have produced a heart stopping reaction. ~~
I have started my count down for the next C&B this fall.. But I guarantee I will listen to this audiobook over and over again until then.

Makes more sense if you've read/heard the earlier books in this entertaining vampire series. Enjoyable story with more on Cat and Bones' relationship. Characters who've appeared in the Night Huntress World series books 1 and 2 also appear fairly briefly (but with adequate explanation if you haven't read those). My only problem with the audiobooks is that this narrator makes Bones (a Londoner from the early 1800s) sound like the Artful Dodger (from Oliver Twist), with an improbably high and camp Cockney voice which I just can't match with the character in the book. I expected a voice a bit more like Vinnie Jones in "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels"! Spade, however, an English gentleman (a baronet) from the same period, gets a civilised deeper voice with a BBC accent, which is done well and is much easier to listen to. My 4 stars are for the book itself and the mostly very appropriate narration but it would have had 5 stars with a better voice for Bones.

another great chapter in the night huntress universe. this time we're at war with ghouls. I love how every story brings out a new dimension to the undead world, New powers or species to consider. another great story with an achingly sad loss woven in.
Loved the narrator. Gets you right in !! English accent almost spot on Can't wait to read the next one!!

Wow just wow I didn't think this series gets any better but i was wrong, Jeaniene Frost is a master storyteller who continues to mesmerised her readers. And Tavia Gilbert is magnificent as the narrator, she makes all the characters comes to life and makes you feel every enotions they feel. This side of the grave is compelling, addictive, thrilling that grips you from beginning to end. It is also heartbreakingly sad but liberating in other ways. Thanks Jeaniene for continuing to entertain us by your masterful way of telling stories and please don't ever stop. God bless you both ladies. xx
