Meet the vampire world's supercouple Cat and Bones in this special 10th anniversary edition, with a "director's cut" collection of deleted scenes!
"Cat and Bones are combustible together." - Charlaine Harris
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 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 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.
Buffyesque. Cat definitely was like Buffy. Never listening and constantly sacrificing herself for love that wasn't. Her mother could not have possibly loved her. She used her love as a weapon against her daughter. Terrible. With that said, I did enjoy most of the book. Quite funny at times. Hated the ending. I suspect Cat had to handle things that uway so the series to continue. The characters were very well developed. Loved Bones. He was funny. The story was also very good. Cat was a bit much to swallow at times, but I guess it was to be expected being raised by a women who didn't love you. A little sad actually. Giving up the one who did love you for the one who didn't. I do recommend the story. Although I did not score it 5 stars, I thought it was an enjoyable and exciting read. I agree with other reviewers, the first 50 percent is pretty good. Stay with it after that and it gets better. Until the end.
I couldn't finish. Boring and exhausting trudge through choppy dialogue and hollow attempt of building a relationship between superficial characters. She is so naive it's not plausible, and his British accent is just annoying. Had to just put it down. I really wanted to like it...
My favorite series
It's one of the very few series out there that starts off great but still somehow gets better and better as you read on.
