Up From the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Night Huntress, Book 7

Synopsis: 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.

Review: This is the final book in the Night Huntress series and it is true that I was curious to find out the whole story. However, certain points made ​​me a little anxious … Indeed, the latest volume of a series is always very difficult to write to content all readers and I was afraid of being disappointed by it… But that’s not all because the sixth volume was a little less interesting than others and I was afraid that it may be the same with this one. But I can tell you that I was wrong and Jeaniene Frost presents us with a very good final book.

Cat and Bones continue their lives quietly, trying not to attract attention until they learn that Tate and the gang disappeared without a trace. While our couple is determined to understand what is happening, they are at the heart of a story about secret researches for the government. But in order to save her friends, Cat will have to ask for help to all her allies to thwart the plans made for her. But it will not be easy, and even far from that because this adventure will be more explosive and lively than expected.

I loved to follow this new story. Cat and Bones will have to excel here as many surprises await them. I admit that I really enjoyed seeing all the characters that we had the chance to discover throughout the novels. Yes we do! You heard right, ALL the characters are present, Vlad, Spade, Ian, Marie, Tate, Don, Denise and many others … Even if some do not have a great impact on the story, it is always a pleasure to see them again. Together, they will find a way to infiltrate a secret laboratory. They could also find here a new character who could impact on their lives.

Cat has evolved over the novels but nothing could stop her once she has an idea in mind. Yet it also puts her in rather dangerous situations and even if she sometimes acts at odds with Bones, they are always there for each other. There is no dead time in the story and I loved the ending to the novel. Everything was really well done and I am very happy to have discovered this last volume. It was a nice surprise for me and I’m sad to leave the characters behind me now.

  1. I thought this was a fitting end to the series. I miss Cat & Bones, but Frost isn’t done writing in the world. There is still one more Vlad book. She has also mentioned that there will probably be a book for the newest member of the cast set in the future. Lastly, I expect she will be hounded until Ian gets his book. I’ll be content will more books set in the world, because at least they are not gone for good, yet. 🙂 Great review.

  2. I have yet to read a book by Jeanine Frost. I think this is the third Frost review that I’ve read today. Wow! Congrats for finally finishing the series, Mel. Seems like the long wait definitely paid off.

    And I love the names of the characters. Hahaha. So eccentric and definitely, unforgettable.

    Lovely review, Mel!

  3. YAY!!!! I have this one but I’ve been putting it off because I don’t want to say goodbye to Cat and Bones. Plus, I was a little worried it wouldn’t be the satisfying conclusion I so desperately want it to be. SO GLAD to know you loved it and thought it wrapped up the series well. I just adore these books:)

  4. I felt that this one was pretty good as well, despite my disappointment with the previous few installments. I also felt that it was time to say goodbye. While I’ll miss Cat and Bones more than I could ever say, dragging things out would work in no one’s favor.

  5. Ooh, I’ve actually read the first two books in this series and I plan to read more when I have the time and if the library has the rest of the audiobooks. I think I stopped for a while though, because they are too heavy on the paranormal romance for me at the time, but the scenes with Cat and Bones were pretty hot! Now that the series has concluded I might look into catching up.

  6. Interesting to see the contrast in covers. I ate this series up before I started my blog but then I kind of lost interest and I havent’ read the last two books. I guess the lackluster reviews for book six put me off. I guess I just need to take the plunge and finish the series. I do love the characters.

  7. So funny, I did a review on Up From the Grave today too! LOL. We gave it the same rating. 🙂 I’m kind of glad that the series ended though, I think it was starting to get boring. They’re great characters and Frost is a great writer, but I felt like she should end on a good note, and she did! 🙂

  8. Yet another series I haven’t heard of! You always manage to pick out such interesting books Melliane! I love the concept of this one, and am definitely going to consider giving it a try. Thanks for sharing and, as always, BRILLIANT review! Glad this series ended on a high note for you! xD
