At Grave's End (Night Huntress, #3) At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost

My review


rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars
Cat is def­i­nite­ly com­ing into her own now, and her rela­tion­ship with Bones is por­trayed far more health­ily than most in the para­nor­mal romance cat­e­go­ry. I love the fact that she demands that he per­mit her to stand as his equal, rather than treat her like a del­i­cate thing to be pro­tect­ed.

The plot is more inter­est­ing than I recall in pre­vi­ous excur­sions, while build­ing on the ear­li­er books. I know there’s anoth­er vol­ume either planned or on the shelves, and I plan to read it. I wasn’t so sure after the last book, but I’m glad I gave this one a chance.

I still con­tend that the cov­er art, no mat­ter how love­ly, shows a woman in a posi­tion that can­not be obtained by any human who wants to walk again. Cat is sup­posed to be half-vam­pire, but that hasn’t been said to give her more flexibility—increased strength, speed, and heal­ing pow­er, yes, but not this sort of odd­i­ty. Yes, it’s a minor nit to pick, but it has bugged me since the first time I saw the cov­er.
