ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE
Series: Night Huntress, Book 2
Avon [April 29, 2008]
One Foot in the Grave, the second installment of the Night Huntress series, starts four years after Halfway to the Grave left off. Cat is now a special agent, has a team of her own and is not just slaying vampires for vengeance but for the government.
Cat’s first assignment is to kill a vamp named Liam Flannery. Turns out this particular vamp is special to Bones and because sentiment stops her from killing him, the huntress becomes the hunted. It’s a decision she may not live to regret.
At a most unexpected time and place, Bones reenters her life and is single-minded in his determination to have her back. Cat struggles with her feelings for Bones, ghosts from both of their pasts and revelations from the present as danger mounts and the clock ticks.
One Foot in the Grave is fast-paced and well-plotted with the snappy dialog and combustible chemistry we expect between Cat and Bones. The revelations from Cat’s past aren’t just for shock value, they make sense and move the storyline forward while putting an exclamation point on some past events in Halfway to the Grave.
I need to say that I expected Bones to be a lot more pissed off when he caught up with Cat after four years, especially with the way the first book ended. But, that said, his lack of reaction wasn’t enough to make me dislike the book, it was simply too much fun. One Foot in the Grave and Halfway to the Grave are in stores now. The third installment of the Night Huntress series, At Grave’s End will be released January 29, 2009.
