This is yet another re-read. This story is just as enjoyable as the first several times that I have read this series.

22 year old Catherine “Cat” Kathleen Crawfield is a vampire huntress.

She goes to school during the day and at night hunts vampires at night. On one of her hunts, she tries to take out a bounty hunter, Crispin Arthur Russell aka Bones who turned the table on her.

Bones offers to show Cat how she can maximize her strengths and compensate for the fact that she is only half-vampire. He also offers to let her assist him as he is going after a vampire ring selling young girls to other vampires for food/pleasure. As they train and fight together, Bones forces Cat to deal with her prejudices about Vampires, spurred along by her mother’s vitrol against Cat’s vampire father. Is there such a thing as a good vampire?

This book has it all. It was full of action, humor, romance and phenomenal writing. Night Huntress series is one of the best PNR/UF series I have ever read. I am amazed that at Cat’s strength considering her age and lack of training. Bones is a riot and sexy to boot. Their chemistry was undeniable and they work well as a couple.

My only complaint is that after several re-reads, I decided to try it on audio. Tavia Gilbert’s voice for Bones is really bad. It took a while for me to get over my irritation but the story was still grade A beef. I don’t know if I will continue with book 2 on audio or go back to reading it on my kindle.
