Halfway To The Grave by Jeanine Frost

SYNOPSIS
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield pursues the undead with a vengeance in the hope that one of her prey will be the father who ruined her mother's life, but her plans go awry when she is captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter.

MY VIEW
Catherine Crawford is a half-vampire and kills vampires, when Catherine was conceived it was the result of her mother being raped by a vampire. As the book begins Cat is on a hunt however, Cat comes across Bones the vampire and they begin working together.

Bones helps her with her vampire skills and are being persued by a bunch of killers.

Billed as a paranormal romance I just love this genre! And Cat is the usual heroine of this type of genre being feisty, well guess any vampire killer would be. And of course, Bones becomes Cat's love interest with some fairly steamy scenes but, it doesn't detract from the book in any way.

I've read quite a few of this type of book and it was a good read, I don't think I will ever find anything to beat Kelley Armstrongs Bitten/Stolen (the rest of that series after Stolen is not as good IMO but, thats an entirely different blog post!) it was good, not great and I will read the rest of the series but, tend to not read book after book by the same author unless its a fantastic series.

I bought this book when it first came out based purely on the cover. I still haven't read it :-(

I guess I should try and get to it at some point. I know lots of people who really like it.

I keep seeing this series around but like you have read a lot in this genre that something really needs to stand out now for me to give it a go as I am in the middle of so many series. Do you think it is worth getting? My favourites are Kelley Armstrong and the wonderful Patricia Briggs series.

Rhinoa - hmmm not sure it was OK but, nowhere near as good as Kely and Patriia Briggs.
