Review: Jeaniene Frost - Destined For An Early Grave

Night Huntress:

Book 4:
Destined For An Early Grave: Cat and Bones plus the Usual Suspects
Kat is a hot commodity, years ago a master vampire Gregor had a vision of Kat and Bones together and became obsessed with her and making her his rather than Bones. Mencheres (Bones, grandsire) saw the same vision and was obsessed with keeping the visions integrity. Gregor does manage to take Kat when she is 16 and she spent a month with her. Mencheres manages to capture Gregor and get Cat back and has to bury her memory so deep that she can’t remember a thing of that month. Now, 12 years later Gregor has managed to get free and is claiming that Cat is his wife, which according to vampire laws means that Cat belongs to Gregor and not Bones. This claim threatens to tear the vampire world apart and Bone and Gregor are on the verge of war. Not only does this threaten the vampire world but is tearing Kat and Bones apart and their marriage and love may not make it past this new threat if they even survive Gregors new threat.
Jeanine Frost so far has not disappointed in previous books and she sure doesn’t in this one as well. I didn’t like this one as much as the previous three books, but this is still an excellent book. Frost knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat and keep the plot moving along. She throws you some curve balls that have your jaw dropping.  Now one of the reasons this is not one of my favorites is one of my favorite characters meets an untimely demise and I’m not so happy about that, but what can you do. I assume Frost has a reason for letting that character go, but it doesn’t mean I have to be happy about it. LOL! All of the usual suspects show up in this book as well and it’s good to have them all back!
