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