“Halfway to the Grave” by Jeaniene Frost

“Half-vampire Catherine “Cat” Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father-the one responsible for ruining her mother’s lift.  Then she’s captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.”

So obviously this is about vampires.  I like all things supernatural vampires, werewolves, monsters, etc, for many years.   So I keep reading different types of vampire books seeing which ones change the rules but sometimes the topic is a little drawn out.  Jeaniene Frost wrote good characters and a good idea for vampires but it didn’t hold my attention through the entire book.  Of course then some parts were really entertaining.

So as the characters go I did really like Bones and Cat.  I thought how Cat had a life outside of being what she referred to as a freak was nice to read about.  She is an everyday girl with a mother and grandparents.  It is cool about her being a hybrid of vampires.  Bones was really entertaining on how he is determined to kill his own kind and be with Cat.

As far as the vampires they have the ususal things human have but enhanced.  The interesting part was vampires can go out in the sun but they are weak and will find sleep, and get a bad sunborn. They can eat, but don’t like it, and no wooden stakes kill them.

As the trend of vampire books come forward I wonder what will be left to kill them with?

Over all the book was a pretty good book to read.
