REVIEW: This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost


Danger waits on both sides of the grave.

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they've triumphed over the latest battle, Cat's new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance . . .

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous "ally"—the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war . . . to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

Title:  This Side of the Grave
Series:  Night Huntress
Book #: 5
Author:  Jeaniene Frost
Approximate Book Length:  388 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Explicit


So this book is different than the first four because there’s no actual conflict between Cat and Bones. They just have a lot on their plate. Cat’s uncle has been keeping a big secret from her. While trying to cope with his revelation, she has to deal with all the Apollyon business. To that end, Majestic becomes involved and the repercussions of her involvement are fun, exciting, scary, and unknowingly far reaching.

This isn’t my favorite book in the series due to some slow points that drive the story, but there are some very fun and interesting scenes and developments.

Bottom Line:

This Side of the Grave is all about trying to prevent war and it takes some special efforts of our favorite characters to succeed. An awesome read with an intriguing ending.
