REVIEW: Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost


Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they've fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it's time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She's having visions of a vampire named Gregor who's more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn't know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won't stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor's hold over her. She'll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she's ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

This was just painful. The entire scenario screams awkward and it causes a great deal of conflict. The fights and distance between Cat and Bones are tremendous. For them as a unit, it all comes down to this book.

Gregor is such a slimeball. It was both hilarious and appalling when Cat finally confronted him. It cost her though. A choice she later makes that upsets him further costs her so much more.

Notable characters that play a significant role here are Mencheres, Vlad, Majestic, and Apollyon. Apollyon is setup, but the other three are ones I’ve come to love, partly because of this book. Then there are fun scenes with Spade and Annette too. The last thing I’ll say is poor Justina and Rodney.

Bottom Line:

Destinted for an Early Grave is another game changer and makes or breaks Cat and Bones.
