Review - At Grave's End - Jeaniene Frost

At Grave's End (Night Huntress, #3)
Some things won't stay buried . . . at grave's end
It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield's life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she's successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat's worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover's finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.
As if that wasn't enough, a woman from Bones's past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat's about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she's learned as a special agent won't help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.

Yes. I am so behind with this series... I read the first two books in January of 2009. Yeah, so it's been two years since I've read this series... Two years!! I've had the other books in this series on my TBR for awhile now... Anyway, on to At Grave's End--

So, as I was reading, I had a hard time getting all the characters and their backstories straight - because I didn't remember details from the first 2 books. But I was pulled right back into the world and they did feel familiar for the most part. I was fuzzy on some plot details, but as a narrator - Cat does a good job of reminding us of events from the past, so I didn't feel completely lost.
I was surprised the book almost began with a climax, and the action never stopped.
I'm not sure why it took me so long to read this book - I even read a couple in the meantime, but once I actually sat and was determined to read it - I was engaged and suddenly needed to finish it.
The action pulled the plot along and there were some pulling on heartstrings in the meanwhile. I love Cat and Bones and I love their relationship - all their interactions. I really hope Ms. Frost writes someone for Tate, because he's freaking annoying me. I enjoy a good love triangle, this isn't really a triangle - but Tate needs to back off and realize that if he really loves Cat - he would want her to be happy - it just feels off to me.
Honestly, I like more angst in my relationships - but Cat and Bones are sweet. I will be reading the next installment soon - maybe not right away - but soon. If you are looking for a kick-ass heroine, a hot hero, and lots of action - this series is for you.
