This is a second read of this book for me and it's still a five star. I love this series so much. And I loved this audiobook so much that I'm going to listen to the rest of this series on audio asap. Tavia Gilbert really brings these characters to life for me. I loved listening to her retell the beginning story of one of my favorite couples. I have heard several other narrators for different series that I just could not listen to. Tavia was so great, I can't wait to hear more of her. Now on to the book.

Catherine Crawfield is a 22 year old vamp hunter from a small town in Ohio. She's deep undercover as a college student. And surprisingly enough the only person who knows about her night job is her mother. Cat, her vamp hunting name, is not only hunting vamps but she is a vamp. Well, kind of. Her mother was date raped by a newly turned vampire and the product of the night is Cat. She's half vampire herself. So she's stronger than the average human and faster. And she's been on the hunt for vampires since she was 16.

Her entire existence changes when she is out hunting, she meets a peroxide blonde, hunk of a British vamp who doesn't fall into any of her usual traps. In fact he ends up trapping her. And things only escalate from there. Bones is his name and he's a vampire who is a bounty hunter for other vamps. And he'll find anyone if the price is right. As of now he's hunting down Hennessy, a vampire who is in the sex/blood trafficking business. Bones has been on his trail for years and has never been closer when he meets Cat. They end up working together. Bones trains Cat to make her better, faster, stronger. Not only does he do that but he teaches her all about vampires and how they live, are created, and die. But while Cat simply sees them as business associates, Bones has radically different ideas. In fact, he's intent on making her his.

It's been years since I read this book for the first time. This one of my all time favorite series and going back into, nothing changes. I found that I did forget some things though. Cat is super bad ass but her years of being in a small town and under her mothers thumb have really warped her mind. I forgot how horribly annoying she was. Especially in the beginning when Bones is trying to teach her. But I had so many feelings throughout this book. I love it so much and I can't wait to delve back in. And even if you've already read this, you should definitely check out the audio version of it, it's amazing.

  2. On my 3rd reread of this book I did it on audio from the library. Narration is ok for me. I don't like her voice for Bones but she does everyone else pretty good.

    "Uh, a peroxyde blonde british vamp reminds me of someone"... Spike from Buffy. LOL That's how I see Bones.

    1. That's how I see Bones too. But I am a huge Spike fan so I'm cool with it. I actually liked her voice for Bones, given the fact she's a woman, she does it extremely well.
