It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’s past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.
My Review

It seems like to Cat that everything is falling into place...finally. Bones is strong as ever by her side, but as she continues with her job and hunting down vampires, her cover keeps getting blown and now she and Bones may be in more danger than ever. When it is apparent that someone is hunting them, with quite a few instances that threaten them, they are resolved to find who is after them. What Cat never expects is that it would be a ex lover of Bones. It seems that Bone's past is coming back to torture them both. Cat learns that sometimes you have to choose a side, and she knows that she will have to embrace certain vampire traits and her vampire side to survive. With Bones fighting at her side, she knows that they can defeat this new enemy that threatens their life and their love and everyone that they care about.

My Thoughts 
At Grave's End is the third installment in the series and what a wonderful addition it is to the series. I have been wanting for quite some time, to get this series reviewed, since I have read it already once and fell in love with Cat and Bones. In the third one, the tension only escalates and we see a newer relationship form between this couple.  A bond stronger than they have ever had before and I will admit as I was reading it, there were a couple times that my vision got blurried with my tears, and it definitely was powerfully emotionally provoking. It takes a bit to get me to shed tears, but this author has a way of portraying certain emotions from her stories to her readers. Definitely action packed, intensely paced and full enough paranormal drama to make you want to laugh and cry and jump into the book and join in the action along with Cat and Bones and their friends.  A  Delight to read!!!

First Line 
The man smiled and I let my gaze linger over his face.

  1. I cried in this one too! Some of the scenes were too tearjerker for me but at the end of the day, I loved it. Cat & Bones are the best PNR couple and gradual growth of their relationship throughout the series is what makes them the most beloved couple.

    Great review!

  2. Good to know I am not the only one!!! :) Sometime I hate it when I cry while reading, but at the same time, it means I am loving it especially when it ends in a HEA. Thanks for stopping by!
