Review--One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost


Having narrowly averted an (under)World War, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving--leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity--forever. But one wrong step and they'll be digging their own graves.

Finally finished Jeaniene Frost's One Grave at a Time, feel so behind since reviews are out and about already. But here goes another. Overall it was a pretty good read. Like most reviews are saying this one wasn't as action-packed, there was still danger and whatnot, but it wasn't as dire. 

In times before it seemed Cat and Bones's relationship might be at stake, but now we no longer have that problem. Cat has worked thorough most of her problems and she and Bones have a rather stable and healthy relationship. But when their ghostly friend, Fabian, comes to them with another ghost with a problem, Cat feels obligated to help since he's helped her. And this is what leads her to needing to kill a ghost who kills women.

Somethings about the storyline kinda of became a little predictable, like one factor towards the end. But still it was a good story, we get to see Cat's feminist side, yet really it's nothing to do with feminist issues. She wants to kill the bastard for he kills women he believes to be witches, yet before that he drives them to the point of being near insanity and then rapes them and then sets them on fire. Nice guy, huh?

So Cat and Bones want to take the b*st*rd down! They pull all their resources that they can to get him, but the ghost always seems to be one step ahead and foils their attempts to stop him.

Another issue is that there is a new boss taking over Cat's uncle's old position. Instead of Tate leading the secret team of men and vampires--and Cat's mom, a new guy comes in who's an arrogant pr*ck. He's one annoying dude. His attitude makes me want to throttle the fictional dude! I definitely see more coming from him later on in future books or at least the next one. The majority of this book was spent on trying to find and stop the ghost.

Denise and Spade make an appearance which was nice to see old friends. And they were in St. Louis! Yay for my town making another appearance! Ian was there as well and I  just love him! His snarky snarmy attitude always gets a laugh out of me! I really like the moments he has with Justina, for as we know she doesn't take any vampire's crap!

Overall it was a nice read! Even if it wasn't as super exciting and thrilling and danger/action packed it was still a good read. And a sort of must read for us Night Huntress fans! It doesn't disappoint. I so can't wait for more in this series!

Overall rating 4/5 stars


  1. Great review, that is pretty much how I felt about it, I liked it but I didn't think it was as good as the beginning of the series. I can't wait for the next book though!
