Jeaniene Frost announced to her fans that this would be the last book in the Night Huntress series and the end to the adventures with Cat and Bones and I will be honest I had mixed feelings reading this book. On one hand I could not wait to read about Bones (Mmmmm Bones) and Cat since it felt it was so long since their last book, but at the same time I was afraid to read it knowing that after this book I would have to say goodbye to these two and never see them again. The book was a bittersweet tribute to all the fans that have followed Cat and Bones from the beginning providing them a book that not only provided twist and turns in the plot and drama but, was the culmination of Cat and Bones' devotion for each other and the lengths that each would strive to protect the most important person in their lives: each other.
A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear— will be hovering on the edge of the grave.
This book had everything you would expect from a Cat and Bones book: action, mystery, drama, heartaches, tears, humour, oh and of course some sexy time with one of literature's most sexy vampire, Bones. Without giving up any details to spoil this book (and this is one you don't want spoiled) be prepared to be shocked by new revelations that changes everything in both Bones and Cat's life and put not only their lives at risk, but everyone around them.
A few things that I will share is the hope that Ian eventually gets his own book because he has grown so much from the beginning and his devilish comebacks brought laughter amidst the many tears I shed while reading this book.
The other point I want to make is I love Bones so much that I don't think there will ever be another vampire written that encompasses so much passion, loyalty, devotion, sacrifice along with powerful masculinity and dangerous brutality. Bones is the epitome of what we lust about in vampires and in male leads. Bones did not disappoint in demonstrating all these qualities in this book along with providing readers a visual of unbridled passion in more ways then one.
Jeaniene Frost definitely made it feel that Cat and Bones were saying goodbye to all of us. The ending was so bittersweet for I found myself having tears at the end and an ache burning in my heart as I felt I would never see this beautiful couple ever again.
A beautiful story and ending to a series that I never wanted to end.
