Description du produit

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.

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.

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.

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 Truly disappointed.... 29 avril 2014
Par Kmarmolejo27 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have to say, I had my misgivings even before buying the book after reading a couple of the reviews from fans on it, but since I fell in love with Cat and Bones and enjoyed all the other books, including spin-offs and short novellas, I decided to go ahead anyway. Besides, being the last book about Cat and Bones, I couldn't NOT say good-bye. And if you are like me, you probably won't be able to resist, despite all the negative comments, because regardless of whether the book sucks or not, who can resist biding farewell to such loved characters? Having said that, boy, was I disappointed! I didn't hate it because deep down (somewhere very deep down), it is still Cat and Bones, but separating my love for the characters, I did NOT like the book itself. **SPOILER ALERT** First of, the whole book just felt like the author couldn't wait to be over with it, it felt like a school project that had to be handed in and had to meet certain characteristics, you could almost see the items being ticked off as you read along. It felt way too short (finished it in a day and a half), most of the characters lacked their usual strength, a lot of them made a couple of lame comments at most and may as well have been completely absent from the book. The "bad guys", well... they're just not scary enough and they're not built up enough, plus it's over so quickly you don't have time to really hate them before they're done in for. One of them is reduced to a babbling idiot, really! And to top it off, the final twist and ending! It is sickeningly happily ever after to the point of Disney Happy Ending. It simply feels completely out of character for Cat, plus whatever maturity she'd apparently gained from lessons learned in the past couple of books, completely gone out the window. To top it off, Cat and Bones get saddled with a third wheel, and it had to be a character that I am quite sure nobody really ended up loving at all. I have to say it again, I am very disappointed with the way Cat and Bones' story ended, I expected so much more for a final book in a series I have come to love, and was so sorely let down that the ending feels like a huge betrayal of the whole story....

2.0 étoiles sur 5 SPOILERS 20 février 2014

SPOILERS!

So this series is dead.

I'm so tired of authors doing this to strong female characters. You go through all the heartache with Cat when she finds out she can't have kids, you go through the amazing relationship growth with her and Bones, you go through a lot of side characters going through growth throughout the books. You grow a little with everyone, you learn to love them, and then this happens.

Not every freaking lead female in a book series needs to be a mother. I was SO EXCITED That for Once the strong, kick ass, female lead in a book series couldn't end up as a mother because there was nothing to ruin the momentum of the series. As soon as they started mentioning a kid with amazing abilities I knew what was going to happen. I'm SO disappointed with this Instant Motherly Love crap that authors seem to think will make every woman on earth swoon.

This was such an abrupt departure from the previous books in the series that I am left feeling seriously disappointed. This is an obvious cut off of the series, and it's not even an ending that I can feel happy about. I thought, how can she possibly top her last book with this one? I was so hesitant to read it, and then I got excited after the first little bit thinking that this really was going to be another great Cat and Bones adventure - only to watch the Author flush the series down the toilet. No wonder they did a cameo with EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER from the series. Ugh. I'm so completely disappointed.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good ending to a great series 20 juillet 2017

This is the final book in the Night Huntress series . On the one hand it was bitter-sweet to see Cat, Bones and friends go on the other it was time.
Now that I finished the complete series I think it was overdue. I would have been happy with five great books instead of the last two books seeming like Mrs. Frost is running out of ideas and just forcing things to happen.
This was not any different for this last book. Don’t get me wrong I liked it (well most of it) but it was not the same as what we got in the beginning of the series.
Sure we get the same characters, but something just seemed to be missing.
As far as this last book goes. I liked it we have Cat and Bones in full actions to not only save themselves but to prevent yet another full-blown war between the species. At the same time they ate trying to figure out what the government or more Madigan is and was up to. Once it is revealed what he has been up to, I thought “NO WAY”. But not in a good way.
I really didn’t care for this part of the story, it seemed too farfetched and yet reminded me of another vampire franchise, that done that. I didn’t care for what we find out. Not because it was (sort of) done before but because it just didn’t seem to fit and felt very forced.
I liked Cat in this book for the most part, except a few parts where she seemed to have lost the ability to think clearly. But mostly she as okay and it is rather amazing how far and how much she grown since the first book.
Bones, well he was Bones not much more to him and his moody self. Let’s not forget Tate. Things change for him in a big…… I thought he handled it better that I thought he would fort being Tate that is.
Charles or Spade as we mostly known him, he used to be more the books and I used to like him but ever since the whole Denise thing, he turned into a big ole douche at least that is what I thought.,
Denise on the other grown so much, she might have even outgrown Spade and all the others. I really loved her in this book.
One other person I surprised me in this book and that was Ian. Man did I love him in this book, we learn so much more about him and I wish we would get more of him. Maybe someday as a spin-off we get Ian.
Overall I liked this book, it had suspense, humor, romance and action. I rate the book at 3★ ...I wish I could have rated it higher being the last but it is what it is.
But that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the entire series, I sure did and I will miss Cat & Co for sure.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Almost boring... and predictable 12 avril 2014
Par K. O'Neil - Publié sur Amazon.com

As I often do when I get a book late in a series I went to my bookshelf (yes, actual books) and dug out all of the Night Huntress books I'd somehow stockpiled and never read. I was looking forward to them after the scurrying to get my taxes sorted and done was over.

Jeaniene Frost knows how to write, technically the books are well written and edited. But, taken in one large dose over 5 days, by the time I got to "Up From the Grave" it was an almost boring read. Lots of gore, lots of action, even more than a little graphic sex (which also somehow got boring) but, to tell you the truth I found the books less and less believable as I read through them as well as very predictable. I got tired of "hearing" the same sentiments in almost the exact same words over and over from Cat and Bones and all the rest. And I REALLY got tired of Tate...

So, by the time I pulled "Up From the Grave" up on my Kindle I was already getting a bit bored. And by the time I discovered the overreaching plot of this book I was more than a little jaded. Many of the earlier books actually had interesting plots but as the series goes on they get less and less believable until "Up From the Grave" was so far out that it left me totally cold. I even stopped liking Cat and Bones, they'd become stereotypes...

Perhaps it was because I read all the books over the last five days... but I've done that with other series and not hit this kind of reaction. I don't know, but I don't recommend this book — although, if you haven't read the entire series within the last week it may be that you'll enjoy the book.

Unfortunately I think the series should have ended one book sooner...
