There’s always one more grave to dig.
Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…
A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear— will be hovering on the edge of the grave.

our thoughts

No, No, Please Don't Go!!!! (For those of you familiar with Kevin Hart. I picture him while saying this..) I can not believe it is all coming to an end. After years of following Cat and Bones we are finally encountering there withdrawal from the lime light. How am I going to live without the vicarious experiences of "luv" and "kitten"???? Amazing couples are hard to come by, and  Bones and Cat are equally exhilarating character. There has not been one dull moment, and everything that they have lived through make each and every book equally as pleasurable.

It seems as though every single one of our beloved cast throughout the Reaper experience was present for the the hoorah here. I loved seeing each, and everyone again but feel slightly jaded that with the, deep seeded friendship of Vlad and Cat, we did not see him much in this book. It seemed a bit out of character that he would not be an essential character for such a monumental time in Cat's life. That aside, I was very happy with the ending. Tate has found a permanent place in Cat's life; after the horrific falling out of the previous book. More importantly, Cat finds herself with the impossible, and further proves that this was the life she was destined. Everything that has happened in her life lead to this one moment, and allowed her the power and ability to be everything see will need for her family.

While I am heartbroken that this all is coming to a close I felt it was wrapped up very nicely. I was especially happy to the see the conclusion with an open ending. It is like a leave of absence rather than retirement. Frost left us with the glimmer of hope that we will still see them again, and I am thrilled by this development. Jeaniene Frost made her name with a shy and oblivious half breed, and one dark and dangerous Vampire Hitman. To see what this little thought has morphed into leaves me speechless and humbled by Frost truly raw talent. I know that we will see more of some of our beloved character to come, but it is impossible to ignore the deep loss that will come with a conclusion to Cat and Bones.
