Review: One Grave at A Time by Jeaniene Frost

One Grave at a Time is the sixth book in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and a novel of Fiction from Avon.

Book Blurb:

How do you send a killer to the grave when he’s already dead?

  The grave is one wrong step away.

Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving--leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.

Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity--forever.  

But one wrong step and they’ll be digging their own graves.

My thoughts:

Cat and Bones arrive home to find their place surrounded by ghosts - as usual.  Thanks to the powers Cat gained after drinking the blood of the New Orleans voodoo queen - she’s turned into a ghost beacon.

When one of the ghosts asked a favor - and explains her reasons behind the request, Cat and Bones agree to lend a hand.

Things turn out to be a little harder than expected when the normal vampire apprehension techniques fail to work on a ghost driving Cat and Bones to turn to a group of human ghost hunters for help.

Along for the ride are Ian, Spade and Denise and Cat’s Mom.

Also Don makes a ghostly appearance and realizes that something is up at the Compound when Jason Madigan shows up as the teams Operations Consultant.

All in all, One Grave at a Time was an okay read.  For me, this was not the most exciting installment in the series.  

I give One Grave at a Time 3 out of 5 stars.

I've heard great things about this author but I haven't started any of her series yet. They sound really good!

I'm scared to start this, to be honest. It keeps getting pretty low ratings and reviews compared to previous books, and I hate to be disappointed in this wonderful series! I will have to pick it up ASAP though, since I really want to know what's going on! Great review.

I agree - this one was just okay for me too. The past few have just missed something the first couple had.
