DescriptionDanger 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.

Reviews for This Side of the Grave
Witty quips and LOLs!
At the end of "Destined For An Early Grave" Cat finally becomes a full blooded vampire, but it seems she's never destined to be normal. She was a freak of nature at half-vampire, now as a full blood one she's still not normal - she drink vampire blood, absorbing the vampire's special abilities.
These abilities have Apollyon, a ghoul, nervous. He tried to kill Cat before when she was a half-vampire, now he uses her to instigate a full blown war, ghouls against vampires. And no one sane wants that!
Cat and Bones, now married, try to put out the fire before it burns both species - but it's hard when Apollyon hides, encouraging ghouls to strike against vampires. Joining forces with Mencheres and Vlad again ensures a story that does not lack in witty quips and laugh out louds!
(Bones takes Cat up to the top of a bridge for flying lessons while he waits by the water line.)
"Your instincts kicked in under duress. Falling from this height should make you experience similar duress, allowing those instincts to take over again." he replied with more calm that was fair. "Come on, Kitten, jump. Or I'll throw you off."
"You throw me off this bridge, Bones, and you'll have a lot celibacy in your future!"
His lips curled in a way that said he wasn't worried. "Only means I'd have to work harder to change your mind, and you know how I love my work. Now quit stalling. If you're still up there in five minutes, I'm tossing you off."
I slowly uncurled my death grib from the beam. He'd do just what he said, and if I knew Bones, he'd already started the countdown.
Cat and Bones are such fun to read. They are the sexiest couple around, hands down!
I had forgotten how much I laugh reading the Night Huntress series, Jeaniene Frost is frigging goddess of fun paranormal romance! There isn't a woman around who can write like she does where you can't but the book down, and scare your pet/partner my suddenly laughing out loud and blush like crazy the next moment.
Cat is still the same ballsy, quick witted, lethal woman we've come to love during the series, she's just a little more mature in the way that she doesn't go off on her own, not after what happened with Bones on DfaEG, which still breaks my heart, btw. Bones is the same, and so addictive to read, any woman would absolutely love to get Bones on their case. I dare anyone to say they could resist the guy! ;D
Frost is a JOY to read! Pick this series up!
