There’s always one more grave to dig.
Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…
A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear— will be hovering on the edge of the grave.
Good installment, but it's time...
Up From The Grave I believe is the final installment for Cat and Bones, and let me just say that their series finale was well done. As with their other books, Cat and Bones have both the chemistry and high power action to light up the pages and prove that no other vampire couple can bring down their enemies with explosive grace. This final installment proved that they have come full circle, and I truly enjoyed the journey they shared. Awesome!
In this final installment, Cat’s previous CIA organization is trying to create super-soldiers by blending vampire, ghoul and human genetic codes together. When the Guardian Council gets wind of what’s happening, Cat and Bones are given sixty days to put an end to the operation and save their friends that are caught in the crossfire. When they discover that saving their friends isn’t the only possible collateral damage, Cat’s resolved is tested when she realizes how much she can lose in this battle.
Overall, I have to say it was fun revisiting one of my favorite couples. Cat and Bones sure know how to blast through the ePages with their high-action tendencies. As always, I love the one liners Bones delivers with smooth, sexy grace, and witnessing Cat’s high power blows is always a treat. However, there were moments in the book that felt repetitive from the other installments, which only led me to feel that Cat and Bones have just about covered their bases where their storyline is concerned. They’ve seen and done it all, and even made mention to that fact a couple times in the book.
I’m sad to say that I feel their story is concluded, but I will definitely love visiting them when they make their cameos in the other spin-offs that are currently under-way. I enjoyed the action and adrenaline that is signature Cat and Bones, and I hope they enjoy their graceful exit. Well done!
