#Updated/BHSV–Guest Post by ALPHA Reader + SIGNED “This Side of The Grave” or “Halfway to The Grave” by Jeaniene Frost Giveaway!

81 Lovely Comments!

I so excited to have here today my best bloggy friend Danielle from ALPHA Reader! I LOVE her reviews and she has yet to stear me wrong LOL
I invited her to talk about the awesome Night Huntress series today, check it out…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Don’t you wanna come with me?
Don’t you wanna feel my bones on your bones?
It's only natural.
‘Bones’ by The Killers -
 
Catherine ‘Cat’ Crawfield is an abomination. She is the product of rape, monstrous in itself, except Cat’s daddy-dearest was more demonic than most . . . he was also a vampire. Cat’s mother and grandparents have tried to steer her on a path of righteousness, and deny her monster-side. But Cat is not content to just suppress her duel-nature; instead she wants revenge on her father . . . one vampire at a time.

For as long as she has been able to wield a stake, Cat has been hunting. In the town of Licking Falls, Ohio, Cat is the premium vampire hunter . . . until the night a vampire gets the better of her.

‘Bones’ is a master vampire, but he also hunts the renegades of his race. Bones is a vampire hunter, and he doesn’t appreciate being almost-staked by an uppity little Halfling. But Bones is more intrigued than infuriated . . . and so decides to take Cat under his wing, showing her the ropes of vamp-hunting. Together, Bones and Cat (newly nicknamed ‘The Red Reaper’) become a formidable slaying team. And what starts as an uneasy alliance quickly boils over into a romance of epic proportions.

Jeaniene Frost’s ‘Night Huntress’ series currently stands at five books, with a sixth set for release in August this year, and at least two more after that. Frost has also spawned two spin-off books with minor characters from the ‘Night Huntress’ world, with plans to write another spin-off serial focusing on one beloved supporting character.

The urban fantasy/paranormal romance genre is a fairly elitist group. Sure, there are plenty of throwaway books you can choose from to fulfil your vampiric/lycanthropic fantasies. But if you are serious about the genre, if you want to be immersed in this fantastically dark and sensual world, then there are a few major book series that are practically required reading. . . and Jeaniene Frost’s ‘Night Huntress’ is right up there in the prerequisites.

If you have read ‘Twilight’, become smitten with ‘Mercy Thompson’ and fallen for the ‘Black Dagger Brotherhood’ , then it’s only a matter of time before you stumble across ‘Night Huntress’. Paranormal aficionados will gleefully encourage your reading – with sly smiles and whispered murmurings about a certain ‘Chapter 32’ . . .

One of the most attractive things about ‘Night Huntress’ is the love story at the centre of it all – the opposites attracting, sensually epic tour de force that are Cat and Bones. Other paranormal/urban fantasy writers revel in the tease. Fans of Patricia Briggs agonized over every glance and double meaning between Mercy and Adam. Ilona Andrew’s Kate and Curran hold the award for the ultimate ‘will-they-or-won’t-they?’ couple. In books about the supernatural set, unrequited love and unrepentant yearning is the norm. So it was lusciously refreshing when Jeaniene Frost threw pining out the window and got Cat and Bones together early on. ‘Night Huntress’ is less ‘will they or won’t they?’ and more about ‘what happens after happily-ever-after?’ as Cat and Bones embark on a dangerous and tumultuous marriage.
I stared straight into his eyes and didn’t hesitate. “Yes, he is. Maybe you don’t understand. Have you ever owed someone everything? All your strengths, all your victories, every last thing that’s meant anything in your life . . . and it can be traced back to one single person?
That’s what Bones is to me.”
- ‘One Foot in the Grace’ Night Huntress #2

On the one hand, it’s nice to read a stable couple (and it’s doubly nice to read their steamy sex life). But that’s not to say that Cat and Bones are without their problems. Bones was quite the Lothario in his day – and Cat is constantly battling Bones’s torrid sexual past and her feelings of inadequacy and jealousy. Frost has also been known to throw a love-triangle in the works, for good measure, and fan pleasure. But at the end of the day, ‘Night Huntress’ is wholly unique for being a series all about a loved-up duo and their hell-raising adventures. Cat and Bones are like the vampiric Bonnie & Clyde, a veritable Antony and Cleopatra for the fanged set.

The second reason Frost’s ‘Night Huntress’ is so beloved is simply for the characters of her world. As much as Cat and Bones hog the limelight and are the driving force of the series . . . it’s also the cast of supporting characters who have captured fan’s hearts and keep us coming back for more. From Bones’s slutty creation, Annette, to the various men of Cat’s government task-force –‘Night Huntress’ is a world with no shortage of fascinating minor characters to keep the protagonists company. And it’s a testament to Jeaniene Frost that her
minor characters work so well, that a few of them have even been given a spin off.
Oh, Dracula as well, Annette? I guess if Frankenstein and the Wolf Man were real, they’d already have double-teamed you.
‘At Grave’s End’ Night Huntress #3 -

Two of Bones’s vampire buddies, Spade and Mencheres, have taken to the spotlight and become heroes of their respective books, ‘First Drop of Crimson’ and ‘Eternal Kiss of Darkness’. And Frost’s leading-men are ever-increasing, with fans eagerly awaiting her new spin-off instalment series, ‘Night Prince’. This new series will follow a Frost favourite secondary character and literature veteran, Dracula. Yes, *the* Dracula. In ‘Night Huntress’

he is a charming and loyal monster with hints of a dark and lonely past. Fans are thrilled for the ‘Night Prince’ books, and I’m sure our boy Drac will be as handsomely tempting as Bones, Spade and Mencheres before him. Jeaniene Frost’s ‘Night Huntress’ and ‘Night Huntress World’ books are paranormal romance du jour. They are books to gorge yourself on – getting your full of lush sensuality and Amazonian kick-assery. Cat and Bones are a sexy and formidable team, backed by a cast of loyal and fascinating friends who will ensure that ‘Night Huntress’ has pride of place on your keeper shelf. If you are yet to delve into this teasingly dark world, then you’re in for a treat . . . *cough* Chapter 32! *cough*.
Walk on.
Dig up her bones.
I have seen the Demon's face
I have heard of her death place.

      Great guest post!
      I agree that it is just as important to have a great supporting cast to the main characters in a book. I wish all authors would keep this in mind when writing.

      I recognize I haven't still read the saga but I have the intention. It's a very-used excuse but I have many books pending to read...
      Thanks for the giveaway ;)

    8. Gabbie says:

      Can I just say, I nearlly crapped myself when I saw the title of the post. Now usually crapping yourself is a bad thing, but trust me, this was the good kind.

    9. This is so great, thanks for the info!

    10. cait045 says:

      oh chapter 32!!! Yes everyone will love this series if they also enjoy Mercy Thompson and J.R. Ward. All are my favorites.

      Well, again, thank you for the giveaway!

    16. Dovile says:

      Thanks for making this open internationally!

    17. Anne says:

      Great supporting characters are the highlight in all the Urban Fantasy I read, much more so than prarnormal or Paranormal romance. It makes for more fulfilling, longer series.

      Regarding the tease by two of my favorite authors: instantaneous attraction and/or hopping into bed immediately does not fit all characters and I felt the wait was not excessive.

    18. As always, awesome giveaway!

    19. Melliane says:

    25. Thank you for the great guest post. I've had these books on my to read list for awhile but hadn't gotten around to reading them. Now i'm really anxious to! It was nice to read what Danielle said about supporting characters. I sometimes follow a series more for supporting characters than for the main ones! Thanks also for introducing me to Danielle's blog. I hadn't known of it before.
