There’s always one more grave to dig.

Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones.  They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights.  Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences.  And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear— will be hovering on the edge of the grave.


my thoughts

I don’t know why I waited so long to read this. I read so many reviews when it was released that had me hesitant because it was the final installment and for some, it hadn’t lived up to their expectations. Honestly, I have no idea what had everyone upset. I LOVED Up from the Grave. Am I sad to see the Cat and Bones series end? Absolutely but Jeaniene did such a good job bringing their story to a close.

Up from the Grave was action packed. Let me say though that Bones really put Cat through the emotional ringer. She’s been put through more in this book than she has been in the rest of the series combined but it was such a great ride. There was action and mystery and honestly so many things popped up that I had not expected at all. Up from the Grave was wildly unpredictable.  Jeaniene did a great job at delivering a fantastic finale to what has been a thrilling series.

One one complaint **TINY SPOILERY** is that there is a part in the book when they’re trying to jog someones memory and decide that seeing a familiar face will help. Bones and Cat travel to go get this certain someone, then when they need another someone, Denise just shapeshifts into that persons form. Its super minor but it made me wonder why they didn’t just do that in the first place with the first person.

Regardless, this book was EPIC and it is absolutely a five star read. Paranormal Romance at its finest.
