Catherine Crawford (Cat) is just your average half Vampire college student who in her spare time trolls the local bar scene seeking out the undead and killing them. Her hope is that one day she will come across the vampire that raped her mother, otherwise known as dad. One night while stalking her next target Cat gets more than she bargained for when she attempts to take down Bones, a two hundred year old, British speaking, Vampire, bounty hunter. Upon learning that she's half vampire Bones quickly turns the tables on the feisty and impetuous Cat, kidnapping her then forcing her into an unwilling partnership. Bones feels that together they'll be unstoppable since she's cunning and has the strength of a man. She's also pretty darn good with a dagger and deadly with a stake. And since other vampires can't sense her she'll also make the perfect bait. Cat in turn agrees to let him train her under the condition that he helps her find her dead beat dad.
Throughout Cat's training she's determined that as soon as she can she's going to take Bones out too. After all her mother always told her; the only good vampire is a dead vampire. As Cat gets to know Bones however she soon realizes that not all Vampires are created equal.Read more ›
Cat is the result of her mother being raped by a vampire. Brought up in a religious family and been drilled by her mother into believe vampires are evil, Cat is hunting vampires on her own since age 16, after being raped herself. Not everything works as planned when one of the vampires she plans to kill ganks her first.
Being offered a less than appealing deal, Cat will agree to team with Bones, a 200ish years old vampire, to kill some more blood-suckers of his choice. She will find a lot more then she bargained for though...
I don't even know where to start to tell you how good this book was. I instantly fell in love with both Cat and Bones. He keeps calling her Pet, Kitten, Luv and it kind of reminded me of Spike in Buffy Vampire Slayer.
They have a pretty interesting relationship together and between the beatings, fights and vampire slaying, Cat will have to question everything she believes in.
The story is fabulous, face-paced, action-packed. It usually takes me about a week to read a book and I read that one within 2 days, I could barely put it down.
I have to admit I was slightly disappointed with the end, not that it wasn't good, but I was hoping for a different one. I really can't wait see what's next on the plate for these two. I already ordered the following three books and they can't get here fast enough!
Bottom line, if you haven't read this series yet, or if like me you have this book sitting on your TBR pile, you need to start reading it now! What are you still doing here? I said go on and read it now =P
Jokes aside, that book is fabulous, a must read!
