Each time I read it, I love it just as much as the first time and manage to devour it in one sitting.  ~ Under the Covers

Catherine “Cat” Crawfield has one mission in her life to kill the undead, vampires specifically and hopefully one day she will come across the vampire that raped her mother, getting her pregnant…with Cat. But her plans and preconceptions are soon torn asunder when Bones, a vampire bounty hunter captures her and offers her a bargain she just can’t refuse.

It has been a while since I have reread this series and I am so glad I gave into my Cat and Bones craving and cracked open my worn copy of Halfway to the Grave. Each time I read it, I love it just as much as the first time and manage to devour it in one sitting.

I know a lot of people think that Halfway to the Grave is a little rough around the edges. But I like it. I have found the recent books in this series a little lacklustre, but with this book, even if the writing isn’t as polished as the newer ones the action is vivid, the romance is intense and the emotions are raw and pour right though the pages.

If you haven’t started this series, I highly recommend it, Cat is a fierce but all too relatable heroine and Bones *pause for infatuated sigh* is just too damn delicious. Together they make a charismatic set of main characters who make this book (and series) captivating.

Here are a couple of my favourite quotes to get you started!


“There is only one way to fight, and that’s dirty. Clean, gentlemanly fighting will get you nowhere but dead, and fast. Take every cheap shot, every low blow, absolutely kick people when they’re down, and then maybe you’ll be the one who walks away.”


“I’m saying that I’m a moody, insecure, narrow-minded, jealous, borderline homicidal bitch, and I want you to promise me that you’re okay with that, because it’s who I am, and you’re what I need.”
