One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress #2) by Jeaniene Frost

One Foot in the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

 

syns

 

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She’s still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again. Original.

 

 

my though

 

 

4 ½ ★ This book starts off where we left in the last book, just 4 years later. It starts off a little slow without Bones but still very important and fun and pretty much introduces us into Cat’s current life as special agent and her team. It also pretty clear while she left Bones (for his own safety) she never really got over him. We get to know a lot of new players in this book. Which often can be overwhelming in books, but not in this, it just all fits nicely in the story and each get their own spot and background. All of them are great characters. Some you love, some you will hate and other you not quite not sure about yet. At least that was the case for me. Cat has grown a lot since last book, even though she was pretty tough already. She just seems to be getting better and better. She is also the leader of her group and taught and still teaches them everything she knows. She is still in search for her father and finds out some really surprising family y secrets. She does finally learn who her father is, plus like I said some other very interesting secrets. We also learn more about her existence, but not everything. I think they is still a few things to learn about what she is and what all comes with it. Of course we have Bones….. And he is still the same as in book one, the same Bones we learned to love. He still will do anything to protect and save Cat. He is also very helpful in coming up with information. We get top meet some more people/vamps from his side. Some are great and funny, while others are funny but I hated …or not. Annette was one of those people, I loved to hate her lol. I really can’t decide, I hate her but I still loved her in the story and hope we get to see more of her. I loved most of the people on Cat’s team. Though I have to say I have a hate-love relationship with Tate as well. Overall, this book was very entertaining and I read it almost nonstop, it had humor, gore, action, twists and turns, suspense and plenty of smexy romance. Chapter 32 topped all the other smexy times in the book though. But there were some things I really wasn’t sure about, I guess I will see how it all comes together in the end before I judge it lol.

 

Great book I rate it at 4 ½ ★

“You know that old saying. Once you go dead, no one's better in bed.”

“I have been stabbed, shot, burned, bitten, beaten unconscious too many times to count, and even staked. None of those held a candle to the pain I felt at seeing his mouth on hers.”

“And that, Annette, is called Pilates”

 

***

 

“You called her Kitten? And she let you? She put me in a coma for three days when I called her that? My balls never recovered from her smashing them into my spine?" "And well she should have," Bones agreed. "She's my Kitten, and no one else's”

“Wouldn’t that make a charming epitaph? Here lies Cat. Killed not by fang, but Ferragamos.”

The Turn: The Hollows Begins with Death - Kim Harrison A little slow start but so far so good

Silence Fallen (Mercy Thompson #10) by Patricia Briggs

Silence Fallen - Patricia Briggs

 

syns

 

In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy's bond with the pack and her mate is broken, she'll learn what it truly means to be alone...

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe...

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...

 

my though

 

I was so glad to get back to Mercy and Adam. Especially since the last book were he finally stood up for her in the pack and I was curious to see how it will continue.

This book is a bit different that the previous books, for one we get dual POV (Mercy and Adam) and it has (mostly) two timelines. But it is well narrated (by Mercy) that it is super easy to follow. Also most of the book takes away from home and with that a big part of the pack,

Mercy is taken really early on in the book and but it is not really obvious at forest in how much danger she really is. And as we know Mercy she also finds some trouble. She does escape fairly quickly in true Mercy fashion. Kicking butt and taking names, but that does not mean she is out of danger. Oh no, there are just different kind of dangers on top of her running from the powerful vampire Iacopo/Jacob. For one she has nothing, not even clothes and has to roam in a strange werewolf territory. Mercy gets herself in quite the few difficult situations along the way. But she also meets a few new people and some allies along the way. We also learn more about her and her heritage as a walker. Something is happening to her powers. She meets a golem and a few ghost on her long and curling journey to run from Jacob and to reunite with Adam and the pack.

One think we learn is just how far the reach of Marrok and his “daughter” really goes.

Adam. I love Adam in this book. Just everything about him or the way he handles things in this book. Even as he struggles with his wolf to keep control and not just kill everyone. We also see how strong their bond really is.

He works with Elizaveta , the vampires and some goblins to rescue Mercy.

He also takes along Honey, who was such a great and shining star in this book. I really love her and also feel for her sometimes as she still mourns Peter.

 There are some really scary things happening to Adam as well and it was great to see him handle it.  It was also great to see him work so close with Stefan and Marsilia.

I really enjoyed seeing the nicer site of Marsilia and we learn a little about her as well.

I also enjoyed Larry the goblin and to learn a little more about them and I really hope to see more of Larry and his crew…… the same goes for Matt Smith (not the doctor)a werewolf that travels with Adam.  

Iacopo/Jacob, I don’t think it is the last time we hear about him as the book ends. But that is all I can say for now to not give anything away.

Overall. I LOVED this book and I hardly put it down and now I ant wait to see how things continue. While it was neat those them off so far all over Europe and away from the pack , I cant wait to see them back home to see them as a family and with the pack . Plus, I really want to know how it all will work out with the Marrok, since they are still cut off from him.

I really have to give this book 5★ because it was just that great.

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

 

“I was in the belly of a bus in Italy, alone, naked and penniless. Also without a passport.”

 

***

 

“While I traveled by bus. Adam made do with a luxurious private jet. That is the kind of my life goes.”

 

***

 

“He will be furious,” said Marsila . She smiled, a surprisingly sweet expression on such a dangerous woman. “Somehow, when she is destroying other people’s carefully laid out plans, she is not so annoying.” “Fabulous” said the goblin.  “Such a clever coyote is your Mercy.”

 

***

 

“The most powerful supernatural entity in the Tri-whatsit city?” I change into a coyote”, I countered. “That’s my superpower. What do you think?”

 

***

 

“My love,” he said, his voice intent. “You are welcome to all that I am, all that I have. I would destroy the planet for you. I was even diplomatic for you, which was a bigger sacrifice. A little power drain is nothing.”

Eleventh Grave in Moonlight (Charley Davidson #11) by Darynda Jones

Eleventh Grave in Moonlight - Darynda Jones

 

syns

 

A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, missing people, errant wives, philandering business owners, and oh yeah...demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part time Private Investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead. In this eleventh installment, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, maybe Charley can find a way to have her happily ever after after all.

 

my though

4 ½ ★

 

I really enjoyed this book in the series. We get a lot of answers but also a lot more questions. The book was very busy and very fast paced. We had a lot of things happening at once, which kept me glued to the book and I finished it in one sitting. The end was the mother of all cliff hangers, or well pretty close. Charley is dealing with a lot in this book. She is still dealing with not being able to see Beep and you can tell that it is really getting to her. The two men in her life, Ubi and Reyes are both telling her what to do and that is really upsetting her to great deal, but Charley being Charley, she does whatever she wants anyway. She is still learning all her powers and after a little unplanned trip receives training from Reyes. Which by the way, turns super-hot. But as he trains her he also uses it against her to get his way. While it was often funny it was also a little annoying. We also learn a little more about her status as a god and what it does to her or those around her. Heaven is in uproar about Charley and have Angels following her but the outcome might surprise you. I also can’t believe after all Charley been through that she still has a sense of humor, we will see if it still be that way in the next book. My hate-love relationship with Reyes continues throughout this book. I really like him but his constant not telling her stuff and keeping secrets so far into the game is getting a little old. But at least he is there when it counts. I also thought the news about him, he took well …… almost too well. I wish there would have been more of a reaction from him at least afterwards. It just seemed kind of odd for him. Charley’s case has something to do with the Forester’s and Reyes’s kind of almost step brother. I’m not sure how much to say without giving anything away but there are quite a few twists and turns.. Some were surprise and others were pretty quick to figure out. Shawn, I don’t think we saw the last of him. Something is happening to Ubi and also Amber but bother are two very different things but yet both are equally scary and surprising at the end. I really enjoyed cookie in this book as well. She kind of was stuck between two bad things happening, but one of them she had not even known about and I felt sorry for her in a way. I kind of missed Rocket in this book and we also don’t see much of Strawberry Shortcake aka Becky Taft, and the one time we see her we just left with more mysteries. Like where is David, what happened to him? It almost seemed like, it got forgotten along the way. But I’m sure we will find out in the next book. Osh seems to be more and more in the books, which makes sense giving his destiny with…… . Which is fine because he truly is one of my favorite characters of the series. Each book we learn more about him and how much he is willing to keep Beep and Charley safe. Overall I really loved this book except the effing cliff hanger ending …….and that I have to wait who know how long to figure out what happens next.

I rate this book at 4 ½ ★
