Series: A Night Huntress Novel #4
Alright this one's tough, do I like this one or book #2 better?
Both are filled with action and witty writing, hmmm....?
Alright I pick this one, even though it isn't quite as light to read as Book #2.
The book begins with a weird dream as Bones and Cat are on a yacht on their way to Europe on... wait for it, vacation. ;) Who knew vampires and half-vampires did European vacations, right?
Well it's about time, they have been through enough and need some R&R – of course they get none as it turns out Cat's dreams are far more dangerous than mere nightmares.
A Vampire older and more powerful than Bones is trying to get his hands on Cat, telling her she is his, not Bones' and that she has been lied to and been deceived and that she wants him not Bones and the life Bones offers her. And that she just can’t remember it as her memories were robbed from her.
As Cat and Bones battle Cat falling asleep and to keep her from the vampire Gregor, their relationship start to chip and break under the pressure. Which is hard to read. Of course it's exactly what Gregor wants - them, apart.
Cat and Bones keep trying to make things work, not be so suspicious - but just how much can one relationship take before it breaks and all you have is shards tearing you apart. I am not going to tell you what goes down, you'll just have to read it yourself, but trust me it's worth it.
Vlad has another big role in the book, and it's very hard to not fall in love with his character, the mind reading, pyrokinetic charmer that he is. ( If I recall right he has his own book in the Night Huntress World series ) Mencheres is back as well, contributing greatly to plot as the 4000 year old serious mega-master vampire.
This book is full of twist but in a good way - a very good way! It is one of the series' most interesting books so far, definitely. It's easy to read in few days and it leaves you hungry to read more, like, right away. Which is why I'm getting my paws into This Side Of The Grave, as we speak.
