Danger waits on both sides of the graveHalf vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives as well as for their relationship But just when they've triumphed over the latest battle Cat's new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long standing balance With the mysterious disappearance of vampires rumors abound that a species war is brewing A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls and if these two powerful groups clash innocent mortals could become collateral damage Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous ally—the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself But the price of her assistance may prove treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined

    Pardon me while I have a little rant If you’re going to do a spin off series then it should be able to be read independently of the original series Otherwise it’s not really a spin off series now is it? It’s just all part of the one same series You should NOT be able to spoil either series by not reading the spin off series in between books of the original series and vice versaAlthough Frost’s Night Huntress World series is supposed to be a spin off it really isn’t It doesn’t just compliment the original series it’s actually just the SAME FREAKING SERIES So if you don’t read them strictly in order and by that I mean the spin off books MUST be read in between specific Night Huntress books then the Night Huntress World books will be completely spoiled and the Night Huntress books wont make any senseIt’s pretty damn rude of a writer to force readers to start and continue a second series just so they know what the hell is going on in the first one VERY BAD FORM no matter how enjoyable the books Because readers don’t deserve to have MAJOR spoilers just because they don’t anticipate or expect that it is critical for the two series to be read in a very specific order here it is so farHalfway to the GraveOne Foot in the GraveAt Grave's EndDestined for an Early GraveFirst Drop of CrimsonEternal Kiss of DarknessThis Side of the GraveIn other words don’t read this one until you have read the first two of the Night Huntress World “spin off” series OK So that ended up being a bigger rant than I had anticipated but it really psses me off So much so that I have very little energy left for an actual review but let me just say thisI enjoyed This Side of the Grave but it was very episodic By that I mean that it was exclusively plot driven with no character or relationship development to speak of and the plot itself didn’t have a lot of relevance or impact outside of this particular bookThat said I enjoyed Frost’s writing again and it was nice to see Cat and Bones’ relationship back on track and Cat continuing to mature Oh and for what it’s worth I didn’t at all find chapter 21 to be the new chapter 32 – not even close – so temper your expectations thereIt’s great to hear that Vlad will be the star of the next “spin off” cough book because he outshone Bones in this one35 stars
