My Ranking

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership.

In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon, Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side...and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

I must admit this was an interesting one. It was kind of a slow start. Very slow... then it got good. Really good. By the end, I wanted to kick Cat for her stupidity and was laughing along with her snarky humor. Which translates to me liking her - and the story - very much. It took me a long time to get fully engrossed. But I did.

Bones is a great character. I love his personality. He's a vampire bounty hunter who's not afraid to kill things and is not apologetic. In fact, he'd laugh in your face if you asked him too. THATS how i like my vampires. Sexy, dangerous, sarcastic - and unapologetic for who they are. Plus he fully accepts and supports Cat which is awesome.

Her mother is such a 'effing bitch! I really, really, really, hate her. Explaining why would spoil to much. But, ugh! Hate hate hate!

Tavia Gilbert is the perfect narrator for this series because her Cockney accent for Bones is amazing! 'nuff said.
