    1. Pardon me while I have a little rant. If you’re going to do a spin-off series, then it should be able to be read independently of the original series. Otherwise, it’s not really a spin-off series now, is it? It’s just all part of the one same series. You should NOT be able to spoil either series by not reading the spin-off series in between books of the original series, and vice versa.Although Frost’s Night Huntress World series is supposed to be a spin-off, it really isn’t. It doesn [...]

    2. 5 World's Freakiest Bloodsucker Stars*Spoilers*First read 2/27/2014 reread 11/26/2015"Kitten, you've been a vampire for less than a year. During that time, you've blown the head off a Master vampire through pyrokinesis and frozen dozens of vampires into a stupor through telekinesis. Your abilities, plus your occasional heartbeat, are bound to frighten some people."-Bones"You know, in addition to your mind-reading abilities, I may have absorbed some sluttiness from your blood,"-CatThe hits just k [...]

    3. Do.Not.Shoot.I can expl…I’m not saying that Cat isn’t the epitome of awesomeness.I’m not saying that Bones isn’t one of the sexiest things out there.I’m not saying that the side characters aren’t intriguing and fun to hang around with.But look at the plot people:Bad guy is after Cat for some ridiculous reason. Cat goes after the bad guy.Tones of random stuff happening.Cat fights the bad guy. Cat kills the bad guy. The end.Sounds familiar, right? You’ve read something like that be [...]

    4. Have you ever done that thing where you say something and realize it came out very very wrong, and then tried to talk your way out of it, only to continue making it worse? I have and I'll fill you in later it counts as the most embarrassing moment of my life. So, I felt much better when Cat has this same problem twice in this book.I'm hungry enough that both of you are starting to looking really, really good."Vlad's lips curled. "Is this the part where I'm supposed to remind you that this is jus [...]

    5. OMG!! yeahhh that rocks!! I totally thougt that the 4th book was the last and now she brings out a 5th book!!!?? Jeanine Frost?! I love u!haha my fav *kick-ass heroine* vampire book series!! <3 PS.: I think I'll go crazy until it comes out! n't wait ^^

    6. Cat and Bones have had a very rough time of it lately and while they have come out on top in the last few battles, there still were loved ones lost and irreparable consequences. In this latest installment, Cat is still coming to terms with her new, mostly pulse-less status. She was unique as a half vampire, so it makes sense she wouldn't be a normal full one either. However, this spells trouble as a nasty Ghoul is using the threat of the "Red Reaper" to incite a war between the Vampires and Ghou [...]

    7. I give credit to the Night Huntress series and my GR friends who told me about the greatness of this series from the Bones Train in getting me back into the PNR genre again. Revisiting Cat and Bones is always a fun experience, this time around though I wasn’t engaged like I was in the earlier novels. Not that I didn’t enjoy this installment of the Night Huntress series, but found it more of a short story/filler in the overall of the series. Much of what happen in this novel was like a repeat [...]

    8. “Ask me if I sparkle and I’ll kill you where you stand.”My favorite of the series - 'The Side of the Grave' holds the best qualities of the Night Huntress books while mainly leaving the small annoyances behind.Cat has grown on me more since she's shed some of the annoying, in the face, immature attitude. Bones is still yummy and protective. Their relationship is in no way in the new stages anymore but they still keep it fresh. They work together as a tough team that - while some natural di [...]

    9. The quality of this series reduced so much in this, Basically nothing happened it was just repetitions of old stuffs and just a little new stuffs. I was bored half way through and the rest part that was new was really fun.The writing is still great and I adore the character development, the plot not so much.“As long as you’re with me, I can handle it,” I said, reaching up to touch his face. “I can handle anything with you.”“I’ll always be with you, Kitten. Always,” Bones rasped b [...]

    10. Ho hum. Meh. A little slow.I never would have thought that these would be words to describe a Cat and Bones book. I’ve always loved Cat and Bones and was looking forward to an enjoyable read. I found this book was slower paced and a little bit dull. Don’t get me wrong – there are some great and exciting scenes in the book, but for the most part, it was a dull read for me.Cat and Bones were a little bland for me this time. Bones is subdued, very calm. Yes, he is still as sexy as only Bones [...]

    11. 4 Awesome Stars.In this fifth book we have Cat and Bones in the middle of an extreme war. Ghouls and vampires are starting a war between them and when previous allies suddenly take different sides nothing good can come from that. Since Cat is under threat she and Bones have to seek help with the most unexpected resources and once again, fight a dangerous war against their lives and this time, against their own species. But well, Cat is Cat and Bones is Bones and they together are pure awesomenes [...]

    12. This book was such a disappointment. It's sad, really. Admittedly, the last one wasn't much, either, but I didn't expect two crappy ones in a row. I finished it this morning, and I don't even remember what it was about. Absolutely nothing interesting happened. Cat and Bones are running around trying to prevent a war, Mencheres is having loud sex (yuck), Vlad doesn't even have a girlfriend (I'm guessing that will be fixed in the next Night Huntress World book, that seems to be Frost's modus opera [...]

    13. While this fifth installment mainly follows Cat’s mysterious evolution and exploration of her intriguing, mystical powers, it continues to fuel to my desire for more of this lovely couple and their myriad adventures.

    14. 3.5 StarsI was so excited to get this book, and start reading it as soon as it came out! I've been on Cat & Bones withdrawals because the 4th book in the series was a bit mehh, and then we got 2 books in the Night Huntress World spin-off, and I was not so happy with Spade's, and I did liked Mencheres.But here we are back with Cat & Bones. Ahhhh Opening scene LOVED IT! I wouldn't mind having him shackled to a cave wall! After that though it started going really slow for me.The story was o [...]

    15. Ok, so this is going to be short and sweet since this is a later-in-the-series book.I LOVED IT! Now, onto the inside flap coverI do have a question, inside flap, isn't Bones missing a nipple? I was looking (ok I was looking really hard) at the picture of Bones and realized his nipple (I think it was his left nipple since I don't have the book in front of me) or at least a portion of his nipple should be showing just on the edge of his leather vest. Ok, I didn't take calculations or anything but [...]

    16. 5 stars because Ghosts are the weirdest thing here. And they go around unexplained much Just very strange, in my opinion. And even thought Cat and Bones are still made for each other I love Vlad, and i ship him with Cat (Vlat)

    17. I love how in this installment of the Night Huntress series, we have Bones and Cat happy.It may sound cheesy, but there it is. In the last book Destined for an Early Grave, they were so far apart it hurt me to read it. While I love the tension of them at odds with each other, I hate how hard it is to read about what we know is a perfect-for-each-other-couple fighting.In this book, they aren't fighting with each other. Bones' past isn't thrown in our faces, and they have a sweet and tender moment [...]

    18. Will Cat and Bones ever get any peace? The answer to that question seems to be a big resounding NO! Thank goodness! Without their ability to piss off everyone in a 100 mile radius I wouldn't be able to obsess over everything about this series! This book continues the vampire vs ghoul war that seems to brewing because of Cat's unusual abilities now that she has been turned in to a vampire. But she not only has the paranormal war to worry about, but her mothers recently forced vampirism and her Un [...]

    19. ~~~~ 4 STARS OR 8/10 ~~~~Do you know what the best thing is about this series?There are never any cliffhangers used in place of a good story to keep readers invested! Do you know why people keep coming back to read more?Because it's not the cliffhanger that keeps us coming, but the incredible stories.With every instalment there's a build from the previous book but things are always mostly resolved inclusively. This was of course a great read. I love Cat and Bones. They're a perfectly compatible [...]

    20. My review would be a broken record at this point. What can I say that I haven't mentioned already? I love the lore. I love Bones. I love the fierce action. I love Bones. I love the secondary characters especially Vlad. I love Bones. I love the steamy scenes. I love Bones. I love the relationship between Cat and Bones. I love Bones. See broken record.One of my favorite paranormal series, but I must be clear it's not a Young Adult book. Definitely not YA

    21. LOVE LOVE LOVED it!!!One thing about Ms. Frost's books is that you laugh (out loud), you get excited and thrilled right along with the story . and yes I was a blithering idiot near the end of the story feeling Cat's pain and loss.I hope Ms. Frost writes about Ian and Vlad soon these boys so needs to settle down.

    22. 5 STARS This book is AWESOME!!! *****SPOILERS*******5th Installment of This Side of the Grave or TSOTG as everyone hasbeen calling it, totally blew me away. I think I can safely say this ismy fave of all the books in this series. With the exception of Ch 32,ofcourse.Cat now a full pledge vampire is learning how to use her powers aswell as her place in the undead world. She has also matured ineveryway. Most importantly her decisions to do things. No more quickand harsh decisions for our Heroine.H [...]

    23. This truly saddens me. Each of the first four books in this series were astonishingly entertaining, and I had begun to wonder if Frost would ever deliver a book without it being wrapped in perfect packaging and tied with a gorgeous bow.Unfortunately, that time has come. While I figured Frost would have to hit a plateau eventually, I had hopes that that time would never come. Looks like This Side of the Grave is it. After being so pleased by the first four installments in this series, it is clear [...]

    24. If I'm honest, this book would have got 4 stars had I not read the other 4 installments in the Night Huntress series. The story, in my opinion, was quite weak and I can't find much to interest me in Marie's character. It's surprising actually because she's another quirky and unique member of Frost's creations, and I so adore all the others. Frost's true gift lies in creating wonderful and memorable characters, with no repetitions amongst them; by that I simply mean all of them are very different [...]

    25. ****************slight spoiler, not pertaining to the plot*************Let me start by saying, that, I liked this book. This is the first book in the series that I have given less than 5 stars to. Let me explain. I love Jeaniene Frost!!! She has given me so many hours of entertainment, whether it’s with the Night Huntress series, or the Night Huntress world. Frost has written some fabulous characters that I love dearly, and have enjoyed watching them evolve, especially Cat and Bones. I really [...]

    26. Bored.So boring. So many paragraphs of things I already knew. So many useless words. I mean, listen, this is typical in the beginning of a long running series, gotta keep the readers in the know and all that jazz. But, the entire book? Nah. Stop. Countless paragraphs started with "I can't do xyz because of that time I did 123 *reference some shit that happened in previous books* then go on to talk about it in detail? Like, I read that book. I KNOW WHY YOU FEEL THIS WAY. WE ARE HALFWAY THROUGH TH [...]

    27. First things first, lets get some favourite quotes out of the way shall we?Pg 339 – “Am I the only one who has wood over that little vixen?”- Ian.Pg 273 – “I know, Im delicious. Nummymmy,”- VladPg 134 – “Premature inflammation,” he replied. “Happens sometimes. Very embarrassing, I don’t like to talk about it.”- VladPg 82 - “Ask me if I sparkle and Ill kill you where you Stand,”- BonesI feel like I have had a reunion of sorts after reading this book. Get what I mean? I [...]
