This review is for the audio book from audible.com narrated by Tavia Gilbert. Tavia Gilbert did an amazing job narrating Halfway to the Grave, she brought to life the personality of each of these amazing characters.

Generally speaking, I normally don't enjoy paranormal romance. After reading a couple of books that were recommended to me, I was forced to rethink my position on the genre. I think my issue was not with paranormal romance, I was simply reading the wrong books. Halfway to the Grave was a perfect mixture of romance, excitement, and an exhilarating plot.

One of the things I enjoy most is when I find a book that contains characters that I would want to know, that I would want to spend time with. I was so happy to have found this in this first novel in Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series. Although Cat, the heroine, is the strong female character that I always look for in novels that I read, it was Bones, her vampire boyfriend that stole the show for me. Biting sarcasm, dominant masculinity, and his own brand of integrity made his character stand out to me.

I thought that the Frost's writing was brilliant, setting up scene after scene of nail-biting suspense, not to mention some truly heart pounding sex scenes, that successfully brought this story to life. My highest compliment to this book is that before I turned the last page, I had already bought the rest of the series that are available and am planning to finish them all before starting on anything new.

I've read so many reviews about this book, and I'm so glad that I followed the recommendation of a couple people who have similar tastes as me to read this. I would certainly recommend this series not only to fans of paranormal romance, but also to fans of urban fantasy that haven't found paranormal romance to be to their liking.
Fantastic start to an incredible series!

I read this book so quickly and immediately bought the following books in the Night Huntress series. Jeaniene Frost is now one of my favorite authors. If you liked the Twilight books even a little bit and are looking for a great read for a much more mature audience, this is the book for you.       Cat is a vampire slayer who hates that she’s half vampire. She takes revenge on the vampire race because of what her vampire father made her. Dressing up as a hooker and …

What to say about myself? Well, I'm erratic, impulsive, chaotic, opinionated, and genuine. Most often you'll find me lost inside a book. My books are my escape, my refuge, and my safe adventures. … more
