Why does all good books have bad book cover ☹? I personally prefer to imagine and have my own creation of protagonists. If writers give a face to book cover, it becomes tough for me to match the description given in book.  Keeping this book cover aside, I loved this book more than first one in series. Cat and Bones journey in this fantasy world continues and we get to see more of a vampire world.

This book picks up right where the last book leaves off. At the end of the last book “Halfway to the Grave” Cat leaves Bones to protect him. She leaves with her mom to the new world. Now she is one of the leads in a Homeland Security Paranormal department. 

Even after 4 years cat still loves Bones and she is not able to move on. She hangs out with her friend Denise, and trains her team, but she isn’t happy. When she runs into Bones again all those buried feeling resurfaces. Bones tells that he never stopped looking for her and he isn’t going away, because she is in danger.

Cat is in danger, there’s a price on her head and everyone wants the infamous “Red Reaper” dead. A new danger is hunting our “Red Reaper”. Bones is the only one who could help her. Bones and Cat venture more into the world of vampires. This has a terrific action and humor. Bones is flat-out one of the sexiest, most deliciously yummy bad-boy romantic heroes.

Narration style is good with a proper mix of ups and downs. We see lot of intriguing secondary characters along with some unique species of “Ghouls”. This book also has lot of blood, violence and gore.

Tons of action, amazing characters, and a great plot. Over all it’s a solid follow up to an alluring series.

You can run from the grave, but you can’t hide . . .

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She’s still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard she tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won’t let her get away again.
