I was excited to read the sequel to Halfway to the Grave, and I wasn't disappointed. Although, I do think that the first book was better. This book starts off four years after the last book ended. Cat has lost all contact with Bones as she had planned, and she is now an FBI agent. She's in trouble now with an assassin on her tail, and Bones is the only one that can help her. It was good to see Bones back, and as much in love with Cat as a Vamp can be. And let me just say, why don't I have bones in my bedroom? He's just too sexy for words. He reminds me of Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He's quick, funny, and always has a smart ass remark. Cat also has a very sharp tongue, so anyone who gets in her way better watch out. Plus, she can throw a knife like no one's business! Now, that's a girl I can admire.

I liked the new characters that Jeaniene added. They are loyal to Cat and trust her so much, that they will do whatever she says. I loved how everything just started unraveling towards the end. All the pieces started falling into place, and it was exciting to read.

I was a little (I mean just a smidgen!) dissatisfied with the ending, but I don't want to post any spoilers. I'll just say that sometimes people are better off dead. Even though I can't help but like a happy ending. If you like action, there were some really fantastic fight scenes in this book. If you like romance and sex, same deal.

A good sequel and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. It's also spending its third week in a row on the USA Today, NYT, and Borders best seller list! With that let's all applaud Jeaniene on a novel well done!
