Review: One Grave at a Time (Night Huntress #6) by Jeaniene Frost

 
Published: August 30, 2011
Publisher: Avon
Format: Paperback
 Series: Night Huntress
My rating: 5/5 stars
 
Synopsis from Goodreads:
 
How do you send a killer to the grave when he's already dead?

Having narrowly averted an (under)World War, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans's voodoo queen just keeps on giving--leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity--forever. But one wrong step and they'll be digging their own graves.
 
One Grave at a Time is definitely one of the creepiest Night Huntress books I've read so far! The storyline of this book features an inhumane, perverted, disgusting and downright heinous ghost named Kramer. To the bewilderment of everyone who knows about him, he manages to take solid form every Halloween and it is then that he tortures and kills innocent women. In this book, Cat and Bones take on the task of putting an end to Kramer before he can kill anyone else.
 
I really enjoyed sinking further into the world of ghosts in this book. Fabian, Cat's ghost friend, has become one of my favorite secondary characters so it was really cool to see more of him this time around. I was also delighted to have Don around as well, even if his situation is quite curious. His grumpy humor is always welcome!
 
Speaking of humor, in this book we are introduced to a character named Tyler, and he had me laughing so hard at times that I was in physical pain! He's a medium who agrees to help Cat find a way to stop Kramer, and he proves to be quite helpful--while also being incredibly HILARIOUS in the process! I'm just saying, he's awesome and his awesomeness needs to be shouted from the rooftops!
 
On a more serious note, Kramer and Cat's showdown had me tearing through the pages of the book with excitement and a little bit of anxiety! I must say, their brawl was ugly and pretty graphic, but it was definitely satisfying when Cat wiped that smug smile off his face.
 
As usual, Jeaniene Frost provided me with quality time with Cat and Bones, a satisfying plot, intense fight scenes and heart-melting romance. I'm itching to see what happens in this series next!

  1. I still need to read this one, but I've been putting it off because I hate that I'll have to wait a long time until the next Cat and Bones book. But... now that there's two books published about Vlad that are set after this one, I think I'll finally just read it soon because I really want to get to Vlad's story.
