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 ★
One Foot in the Grave is straight up exquisite. I couldn’t get enough of all the characters and the excitement in the vampire world. The icing on the cake? Chapter 32.
I want to start by saying that Jeaniene Frost is an amazing author and I can say that after only reading 2 of her novels. I was actually recommended this series by the author Kristin Cast on Twitter–she kept raving about how good these books were and I must admit, she was not lying. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’m starting off with the second book in the series and not the first (Halfway to the Grave) because I read that one months before I started this blog. So throughout this review I might add some thoughts about the first book in the series. The first book ended with such a bang that I took to Twitter to express my broken heart and wouldn’t you know it, Jeaniene Frost reassured me personally that my heart would be put back together. One Foot in the Grave did not disappoint. It was a great read and I couldn’t put it down– I literally stayed up super late one night reading and had to force myself to put it down and go to sleep. I can’t wait to see what Cat and Bones will be up to in the next book in the series.
There are so many things I love about this book. One of the things that got me so attached to this series was the relationship dynamic between Cat and Bones. In a weird way, I’m jealous of the lengths Bones will go to for Cat and how he turns into a no nonsense kind of guy when it comes to her. He’s very protective of his Kitten and won’t let anyone (and I mean anyone) disrespect her. I’m also absolutely entranced with how Bones is portrayed to sound! Some of the words he uses are just pure entertaining and I think it adds to high likability. I know it probably has to do with where he is originally from and the century he was born in, but words like knackered and bloke (and MANY, MANY others) just spoke to my heart. Add all of these things to the speech that Bones give to Cat to show her the depth of his commitment and that makes me Team Bones for sure. This should go without saying, but Bones is definitely SWOON WORTHY! I didn’t think so at first, he was such a jerk but I definitely changed my mind. Frost, also isn’t scared to kill characters off which I really like because you never know what’s going to happen. And then there’s the interesting fact of just because they die doesn’t mean they are dead.
However, there were a few shortcomings to the book in my opinion. Nothing too horrible, but that’s why I couldn’t rate the book 5 out of 5 stars. To start with, I was extremely disappointed that 4 1/2 years passed by between the first and second books in the series. I understand it’s realistic that it took that long for Bones to keep his promise to Cat, but it angered me a little (ok, a lot!). I’m just glad I didn’t have to wait the 4 1/2 years for this. I was also a little thrown off by time jumps in the first couple of chapters. To be honest, I didn’t really like that a month would pass between chapters. Another aspect I was a little disappointed with is how the promise was kept–nothing like I was expecting and it was kind of a let down. But I got over that so quickly because I was just happy that the promise WAS kept that nothing else really mattered. One more tiny thing that became a little annoying, is that Cat sometimes acted like a 5 year old girl throwing a temper tantrum when it came to Bones–which, I guess if you think about it, is how girls act when they are in love. I loved when Cat decided to woman up and claim what was hers!
Dont fret, luv. I’ll be back before you know it. -Bones
