Jeaniene Frost - Halfway to the Grave (book 1)

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.
Before beginning this story I casually ask a few people at work if they had ever read the series with the main characters being,... Cat and Bones. Raised eyebrow and bulging eyeballs along with facial expressions saying "have you been living on Mars" told me I have missed out on a series I needed to start right away. After finishing the first installment I can understand why people looked at me like I had a horn coming out of the top of my head. HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE not only brings two individuals together, (hoping they will be HEA) the events surrounding their cause mushroom with long standing issues from the undead world whipping this into a great read. Cat is an amateur vampire slayer that is interesting, funny, and very unsure of her inter feelings. I don't feel she truly sees herself for what she really is until she meets Bones. He is tall, blond, dangerous, sexy, hot, extraordinary, romantic, powerful, enticing and just plain yummy. Yet, the biggest word to describe him has to be mysterious. A lot of inquisitive questions concerning this charming hunk are not exposed in the first book. Yes, we know how he became a vampire but after that, his life is a blank. There has to be a past to bring him to the present as a vampire bounty hunter. Hopefully more will be revealed in ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE.

My Rating - 4.5
