Destined for An Early Grave

Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Huntress, Book 4
Narrator: Tavia Gilbert
Year: 2010
Publisher: Blackstone Audio

Goodreads Description:

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 series keeps getting more addictive with every book. I love the characters, the dialogue and the action. I like that Frost doesn't make Bones and Cat's relationship storybook. Instead, they have to fight to make things work and this book was a prime definition of fighting for a relationship. I got so caught up in the audiobook that I ended up just sitting in my bedroom listening to the last 2 1/2 hours because I had to know how it was going to turn out. There were a couple of unexpected turns in this book. Once again Gilbert does an excellent job with the narration. Even her voice for Bones is starting to grow on me.


  1. CAT AND BONES!!!! I love them so much Melissa! They are one of my favorite fictional couples and I just cannot get enough of them. I've devoured all the spinoff books and the first in Vlad's series as well and love them all:) So glad you're enjoying this series too!

  2. I'm listening to all the books in chronological order so I'm on Denise and Spade's story right now and LOVING it. I think I'm addicted to these books. I keep trying to listen to something else and the whole time I'm wishing I was listening to the next Night Huntress book.

  3. I haven't read this series in a while. I think the last two books I listened to the audio. I was not too happy with the auidos. I need to go back to them and read it in print.

  4. I've had issues getting used to the voice the narrator uses for Bones but the story has got me past that.
