As much as I loved First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost the first book in The Night Huntress series was a let down for me. Why you might say?
One day Cat encounters a vampire called Bones, her plan was to end his days but soon tables are turned. Bones is a vampire and a vampire bounty hunter, he gives Cat an offer she cannot refuse.
Ok, so some might think I'm a prude now but that's fine by me. I don't mind sex scenes in books but they have to be exceptionally well written not to feel like cliches. I do not appreciate it when it feels like the sex have been added because there was a hole in the plot. It felt like the author might have been unsure as to what was going to happen next so then sex between the characters seemed like a great idea. This book might as well have been titled All the way to the bed, a bit too much for my taste as you might have understood by now.
I wanted to enjoy this first book in the Night Huntress series, I really did. I mean I LOVED Jeaniene Frost's first novel, First Drop of Crimson - check out my review here, in the spin-off series Night Huntress World. There was, of course, sex in that novel as well but it felt more like a natural part of the story. It might have been because Frost now is a more experience writer? I'm not sure, but I can say that I will give Cat and Bones another try.
I liked the characters in the story, they were all likable. So I have to ask you guys does the series get better or should I just continue on with the Night Huntress World instead?
My rating of this book:
This book can be purchased from a number of local retailers and on-line book stores such as Amazon or The Book Depository (I'm not an affiliate of either). The latter store does by the way have free shipping to about 100 countries.
I purchased the audiobook from Audible.
