Revue de presse

“I always open a Frost book with happy anticipation.” (Charlaine Harris)

Praise for: Once Burned“A stay-up-until-sunrise read… There are many Draculas out there, but only one Vlad, and you owe it to yourself to meet him.” (Ilona Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of the Kate Daniels series)

“...rambunctious series debut...” (Publishers Weekly on ONCE BURNED)

A breathtaking conclusion. Frost has taken her legion of loyal fans on an amazing thrill ride that has been loaded with plenty of emotional peaks and valleys as well as kick-butt action. (Romantic Times BOOKclub, 4 1/2 stars)

Emotional stakes and body counts are high in Frost’s exciting and dramatic seventh Night Huntress novel. (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Leavened with strong emotion and dark humor, and featuring superior writing as well as a thoughtfully structured plot, Cat and Bones’s final adventure is appropriately splendid and satisfying.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Grave Ends Here.

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.


Final novel in the Night Huntress series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Une fin attendue... 7 mars 2014

Synopsis :
Cat et Bones ont eu le droit a un peu de répit après une dernière aventure particulièrement difficile... mais tout n'est pas réglé et les ennuis finissent par ressurgir... par l'intermédiaire de Don, oncle et ancien boss de Cat, qui l'informe que ses anciens coéquipiers (Cooper, Dave, Juan et Tate) ne donnent plus aucun signe de vie depuis plusieurs semaines. Sans aucun doute c'est Madigan (leur boss) qui est derrière tout ça... mais l'ampleur de ce qui se trame dépasse tout ce que Cat et Bones auraient pu imaginer...

Mon avis :
Jeaniene ne perd rien de sa plume magique, le récit est toujours très bien mené et très bien écrit. Je n'ai pas dévoré ce livre, je l'ai savouré, puisque c'est le dernier avec Cat et Bones (il reste encore un tome avec Vlad et éventuellement un autre spin-off ou une autre série spin-off avec un autre personnage (Ian?)), et sans être le meilleur, il se lit vraiment avec plaisir.
Les points forts : Jeaniene avait vraiment tout prévu depuis le début et elle amène les choses de façons inattendues, ce que j'ai beaucoup aimé ! Et puis on a le droit a un tour d'horizon de la majorité des personnages secondaires (Ian, Mencheres, Kira, Tate, Juan, Dave, Cooper, Tim, Marie Laveau... même un peu de Vlad et Leila en passant) excepté la mère de Cat (mais sans regret), ce qui permet de leur dire au revoir avec plaisir.
Dans les points faibles : je ne dirai rien sur l'intrigue... mais bon disons que si J.F.

Voici le dernier tome des aventures de Cat & Bones. Alors que l'auteur développe de nouvelles idées et continue à travailler sur le spin-off de Vlad, les fans espèrent voir l'univers de nos héros perdurer encore un peu.
Dans ce tome, l'auteur s'amuse à faire revenir tout le monde, même pour une courte apparition. Nous verrons donc Don, Tate, Juan, Dave, Cooper, Mencheres & Kira, Denise & Spade, Ian, Anette, Veritas, les humains (le voisin de Cat et le médium), Marie Laveau et Helsing. Une sorte de baroud d'honneur pour ce dernier tome, mais je reconnais que si j'étais contente de voir tout le monde, certaines apparitions étaient vraiment éclair - comme celle d'Annette ou encore de Vlad & Leïla.
Question personnage, aucune réelle évolution par rapport aux tomes précédents : Spade est tellement protecteur envers Denise que ça en est agaçant, Ian est égal à lui-même - tout comme l'ancienne équipe de Cat.
Le couple fétiche Cat& Bones n'évolue pas réellement, je veux dire il n'y a aucune réaction qui ne soit attendue ou déjà vu dans un tome précédent. Ils s'aiment et sont prêts à tout l'un pour l'autre.

Côté intrigue je suis un peu déçue, j'attendais un final beaucoup plus exposif : ici c'est plutôt linéaire. On devine les rebondissements bien avant que l'auteur ne le fasse et les méchants ne sont pas assez "balèzes". Le fait qu'on ne les ai pas vu avant ne présageait déjà rien de bon, mais là j'ai eu l'impression qu'il n'y avait aucun effort de la part de Cat pour s'en débarrasser.

Par Olga - Publié sur Amazon.com

If I were to rate this book based on my love for the characters or the fact that this was our good-bye, then I would have given it 5 stars. But that is not what rating a book is about.

I will always hold close to my heart Cat and Bones, the characters that with some help from Sookie and Eric got it all started a few years ago. My reading obsession.

But as much as it hurts me I find myself writing the review of the final Night Huntress novel and rating it 3 stars.
I could barely recognize the characters in this one. It was as if I was reading something else entirely. There are at least some constants. Ian is the same and I can’t wait to read his own book one day, and the sex scenes (there was only one really) are just as steamy.
All this notwithstanding, I was disappointed. Disappointed in the way the author chose to wave good-bye to her characters, in the weak and anticlimactic plot, and the detached air of the entire book. It was like reading a newspaper. I don’t know what happened, but I know when it started. About 40% through the book, when I was supposed to be reading Up From the Grave, I thought I was in front of a TV watching Underworld: Awakening instead. If you have seen the movie that is all you have to know about this last installment. But I’d had no idea at the moment just how much so. It only went spiraling down from there.
I hate it when I’m reading a book and I think “Well, isn’t that convenient!” about some story arc. I caught myself thinking that a lot with this novel. Bones’s new powers and capabilities, Marie Laveau‘s involvement, Don…

*******SPOILERS******
I'm angry that we didn't get a wedding. Instead we got a child. I don’t understand why Cat needed to be a mother when she herself had said that children scared her and that she was alright with not being able to have her own one day. And more than anything I couldn’t grasp her insta-motherhood. One moment she just found about about her eggs being stolen, the next she's in mother-hen mode. The whole plot involving the child (and everything that happened inside that facility) was a no-go for me. And mind you I’m a sucker for those endings. But not for PNR. And most definitely not for Cat and Bones. It was just right for them that way, just Cat and Bones. I would love, say, for Kate and Curran (Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews) to have a child in the end, or see Raphael and Elena’s (Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh) child wrap its father around its little finger, but not here. For some reason, Cat and Bones were designed to function just like a team of two. I thought it was the right thing for them.
It didn't fit in this world, it was forced, and it was rushed. It felt pulled out of the ass. But that is me.

I’m just glad that when the writer feels like they are getting tired of their characters and want to move on to new projects they do just that instead of stretching it out for all eternity. This finale just made me realize that Cat’s story should have ended a couple books back. But I’ll always have the previous books I loved so much, and the novellas. Oh, the novellas. Some of them are better than the main books!

I will miss you like hell Cat, Bones, Ian, Kira, Mencheres, Justina! Good thing I can always go back and enjoy the rest of the books all over again. Thank you for that, Jeaniene Frost.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing Plot Elements 31 janvier 2014
Par Melissa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It has been a long time since Cat and Bones got to shine in a Night Huntress book ... a long time. I had thought that perhaps their story was done. So it was a pleasant surprise to see that Up From the Grave was being published as a grand finale for the series that I have enjoyed so much. How was it? Well ... for the first two-thirds of the book I really enjoyed it. Now that Cat and Bones are a solid couple there is not the focus on steamy romance that was present in many of the previous books in this series. Instead this is a story of two people who have a strong and enduring relationship who work together to solve the problems that threaten them. If you are looking for a lot of swoon worthy moments, you aren't going to find them in this story. But there is a lot of evidence of the deep and lasting love that these two main characters have for each other. There is action ... lots and lots of action. The action drives the plot in many ways, and Jeaniene Frost writes those scenes wonderfully. The first two-thirds of the book focuses on Cat and Bones trying to discover what has happened to the members of Cat's former team who are now missing, presumably being held captive by Madigan, the new head of the team. Things don't look good. Somehow they have to find a way to save these men from experiments taking place ... a horror that Cat and Bones discover as they try to uncover what Madigan is up to.

If the story had simply focused on this giant dilemma I think it would have been great. I would have loved to spend more time with these secondary characters who were so richly developed in previous stories. I would have loved to spend more time working through all the ethical, physical, and mental dilemmas that come about because of what is going on in these secret government facilities. Once they figured out exactly who was running the show I would have liked to spend more time exploring exactly who this guy is and why he is so bent on pushing this mission. I would have liked to spend a lot more time with Cat and Bones and the romance that was so wonderful to read in the first books of this series. Any of those story lines would have made me super happy as I finished this series. But at the two-thirds mark of this story a giant revelation came out and ...

I HATED IT!!!

I absolutely hated it. There are so many reasons that I hated the big reveal of this story that I could fill paragraphs with my complaints. But I won't. I can't. To do so would be to spoil that revelation. I will just say that it was so Twilight-esque that it ruined the ending of this book so much. So. So. Much. I hate that I felt that way. Maybe if you were someone who didn't mind that twist from the Twilight series this wouldn't bother you. But ... oh man! ... it really bothered me.

After the big twist I just couldn't feel all warm and fuzzy about the story. At that point it seemed like every single piece of the plot was simply a way to have a giant reunion show where everyone has everything go absolutely swimmingly. I love happy endings. Really. I LOVE them! I expect them. I rejoice when they happen. But every once in awhile I read a concluding book in a series where I just feel like the author vomits a lot of quick happy moments together just so we can all say that everything ended perfectly. And yet, somehow, through the perfection of the ending it ends up coming across as not perfect at all and inauthentic. That's how I felt with this one, but, like I say, my lack of love for all the happiness at the end may have simply been a result of my distaste for the big plot reveal at the latter end of the story.

So I think I would conclude by saying that this book is candy for huge fans of the series. It allows us one more glimpse at the couple that we fell in love with in the beginning. We get to see favorite characters from past books (even if some of them seemed to be thrown briefly into the plot simply so that we could say "Oh yeah! I remember him!"). There is much to like in this finale. Unfortunately for me there was one GIANT plot issue that kept me from loving this story. But still ... I love Cat and Bones! Three stars!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Predictable and Flat 2 février 2014

Up From The Grave is the final book in Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series. I've been a big fan of Cat and Bones and was eagerly awaiting this final installment and, wow, what a disappointment. It's totally predictable, flat, with an ending I really hated.

From the earliest pages, it's pretty obvious where the plot is headed so when Frost reveals the "shocking" twist at the 2/3 mark, it isn't shocking at all. Along the way, you'll recognize pretty much every plot device from earlier in the series, some having been used over and over. (When you get to those parts, you'll know exactly what I'm referring to.) So the big scenes meant to make the reader gasp and weep over the horror, don't resonate and aren't in the least bit sad since it's fairly obvious how it will all get fixed.

On the positive side, some of the battle scenes were fun and appropriately gory. Ian is again the star of the show, with some of the best lines. Cat and Bones are totally devoted to one another, and I like that. Bones continues to be scorching hot, but Cat is not her usual sparkly, snarky self. She continues to go off and do whatever the heck she thinks is right. It doesn't seem that she has matured in the least over the course of the series though, instead of her behavior causing a rift between her and Bones, now they talk and quickly move past it.

As for the "shocking" twist, even though I knew it was coming, I absolutely hated it. Frost could possibly have rescued the ridiculous scenario she sets up, but instead glosses over the entire situation with no dialogue whatsoever between Cat and Bones and no meaningful discussion between Cat and the other supporting character who inserts himself into the mix. Then, Frost is rushing us through to the end and one of the worst epilogues ever. ***SPOILERY COMMENT FOLLOWS*** As some other reviewers have pointed out, think "Twilight" but with a supporting character that no one really cares about. Awful.

Overall, this book feels slapped together because Frost had to end the series. It seems she lost interest in writing about Cat and Bones quite awhile ago. Without a doubt, the weakest book of the series and my least favorite.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Disappointing End to a Series that Deserved so much Better 30 janvier 2014
Par kbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I don't know how to describe this book. Having read all of the Night Huntress books and the other characters' books from the series, I can say that this book was not like Frost's normally witty, well-written, original stories. In every series, there is one novel that is your least favorite; this one was mine, but more than that, it wasn't just my least favorite, I actively disliked this book. I skimmed through many parts because it was boring and an uninspired hack of a common recent book and movie plot (think Breaking Dawn, the last Underworld movie, and the CW's the Originals). I thought Frost was better than that. The vampiric happily ever after she was shooting for falls flat for me.

**Spoilers**

I am so disappointed that Jeaniene Frost decided to end this series with giving Cat a kid. As soon as the little girl in the cage was mentioned, I knew who she would turn out to be. Apparently Frost is one of those people who feel that a woman isn't complete until she has a child, but I'm not. The whole convoluted way that she was created was also ridiculous, stealing ovaries from an unconscious woman & hoping she doesn't notice? I don't even want to go into how stupid that sounds.

I am also appalled at Madigan's story-line. I would have had no problem with them kicking his ass & making him suffer when he was alive, but once they brought him back as a ghoul, then I had a real problem with how he was treated. He was clearly damaged with a childlike view of things & no memory of what he had done. Reading about Bones beating him for an hour horrified me. I don't want to read about brain damaged people being beaten by super strong vampires, it's wrong & if Frost wanted Madigan to pay for what he did, then she should have had them capture him alive. I would have liked to see him pay for his crimes instead of having the unsatisfying end he had.

I'm giving this two stars because it's the end of the series, for the whole stupid "Cat must have a child" plot alone it only deserves one. What a waste to go out this way.
