    The grave is one wrong step away.

    Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

    Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity - forever. But how do you kill a killer who’s already long dead?

    Jeaniene Frost, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, lives with her husband and their very spoiled dog in Florida. Although not a vampire herself, she confesses to having pale skin, wearing a lot of black, and sleeping in late whenever possible. Aside from writing, she enjoys reading, poetry, exploring old cemeteries, spelunking, and traveling - by car. Airplanes, children, and cookbooks frighten her.

    Love in vein: listen to another Night Huntress novel.

    One Grave at a Time

    Und auch Buch Nummer 6 - wow, ich liebe Cat & Bones.
    Die Beziehung der beiden wird mit jedem Band stärker, sie vertrauen komplett aufeinander und sie lernen aus Fehlern aus der Vergangenheit. Und das merkt man in diesem Buch ganz besonders.
    Und obwohl es bereits Buch 6 ist, kann ich mich nicht sattlesen/-hören an Cat & Bones, denn die Autorin schafft es immer wieder, mich in ihren Bann zu ziehen.
    Dieses Mal müssen die beiden gegen einen Geist der besonderen Art vorgehen. Auch hier kommt wieder die tatkräftige Unterstützung ihrer Familie, was ich besonders toll finde, wenn man immer die anderen Charaktere zu lesen bekommt (und wie ich mich jetzt schon auf Ians Geschichte freue).
    Aber sie wären nicht Cat & Bones, wenn ihnen nicht immer etwas einfallen würde - und obwohl es so viele Hürden und Hindernisse gibt, ist es spannend und aufregend beide dabei zu beobachten, was sie als nächstes tun.
    Dieses Mal bleib ich noch mit einigen Fragen zurück, dass ich unbedingt das nächste Buch verschlingen muss.

    Cat and Bones as ghost hunters

    Cat still has to live with the "little gift" that the New Orleans' vodoo queen left her. But her interaction with ghosts reaches a whole new level when she meets one that can truly appear in flesh. And Elizabeth, said ghost, isn't the only one able to do that. She tells Cat and Bones of an evil ghost who tortures poor women and haunts countless others: Heinrich Kramer, former medieval inquisitor and author of The Hammer of Witches. A ruthless battle starts that only one side can win.

    (Alright, where do I take those cheesy lines from? I don't know but sometimes I'm just lacking the cool and witty words to express things...)

    One of my main points of criticism for the last book was the overdone sexuality between Cat and Bones and I was relieved that this book didn't focus on numerous vampire love plays, even though it's repeated about a hundred times how Bones is sexy as hell. But I can live with that. Now, unfortunately, there was another point that lessened my love for this book: the plot. Yes, you read that right. I never thought I would say something like that about one of Frost's books, but it wasn't as exciting as her others. There were even parts in it that were a little bit boring, probably because it focuses only on this battle against an evil ghost. In the last books, there were more issues to tackle, be it between Cat and Bones as a couple who've now grown into their relationship, or between the supernatural races on a larger scale. Kramer is indeed a malevolent creature, but fighting him wasn't enough for me to fill a whole book.

    Still, I'm in love with Tavia Gilbert's reading. She is so incredibly gifted (even her German accent was alright). Gilbert knows how to differentiate dozens of characters with her voice and I've hardly ever listened to a speaker who could create that much tension which is, of course, also due to the author's great writing.

    A particularly funny addition to the Night Huntress world's pool of characters was Tyler, the gay medium. He had the hots for Ian (and Bones... and Spades... he didn't meet any more male vampires but he would have tried to jump their bones too, probably) and I loved his inner comments that Cat had the unfortunate ability to listen to.

    I was glad to meet many old friends again, like Spade and Denise. I'm not telling too much when I say that there is one especially heart-wrenching scene in this book involving those two.

    The seventh book, Up From The Grave, will be out in January already, I hope they hurry with the audio production too. And I also hope that Ian will get his own book soon. He's so wonderfully sarcastic, I love him!
