Avon Romance Back Cover Description:
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 unholy partnership.

In exchange for fiding 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 newfound 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.

Halfway to the Grave is the first book in Jeaniene Frost’s, Night Huntress Series, and introduces us to half-vampire Cat. Cat is a hunter of vampires since her father is one of them and was a horrible man. She has grown up her whole life hearing nothing but evil things about the vampire world. When Bones comes into her life by way of capturing her she has to decide if she wants to team up with him or be killed by him. Even though Cat despises the vampire race she must team up with him in the hopes that she’ll get revenge on her father. In the end she finds herself falling for Bones yet in a situation with an offer she knows, well really thinks, she can’t refuse.

This book was hard to put down but a very fast read. Jeaniene does a great job of adding in humor that I was not expecting and I couldn’t help but actually laugh out loud. She also does an amazing job of really helping you get to know the characters and become “attached” to them. You want to know more and more and by the end of the book you are just in disbelief!

I am so happy that my Cousin turned me to this series after I told her I was a huge fan of the Sookie Stackhouse novels.  I will add a favorite quote later since there were so many throughout the book and I’ll have to re-read it to narrow it down to one or two!  🙂
