Taschima's POV:The grave is one wrong step away.Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans' voodoo queen just keeps on giving--leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit.Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive. This year, however, a determined Cat and Bones must risk all to send him back to the other side of eternity--forever. But how do you kill a killer who's already long dead?
I love this series, and this book was as great as the last one. Even though it looked, sounded, and read as a special Halloween episode it still served a purpose on the grand scheme of the series. It laid a base for a future new plot. It was needed, it's not one of those books written for the sake of selling it and prolonging the series, it is needed in order to move ON the series into better greener and deadlier pastures. And hey, you get to see Cat, Bones, Spades, Ian, the kitty, and the whole gang one more time, so who's complaining?!
Cat and Bones just got out of an almost war with the underworld, so they think they deserve some relax time. What these two should have remembered was who they are. Relax time? Never something that really happens in this world (unless you count the their time apart, and no one is counting that). So their ghost friend, Fabian, has a ghost lady friend, Elizabeth, that needs help and he wants Cat and Bones to help her out. Considering the HUGE amount of help Fabian has been to them, they can't refuse. So they basically have to stop another bad ghost from killing a bunch of women, a thing he has been doing for centuries. How can you killed a ghost? I don't know, I guess you will find out when you read the novel.
Besides this there is other things going on, like someone taking over Tate's job at the compound and ruining everything and stuff, but like I said this book is all about laying new ground for an upcoming plot line, a bridge between books if you will. But even though its a bridge, it's a heck of a ride as well. Also I have to warn people that this IS an adult book, though compared to other books in the series it has so many less sex scenes, it still has one or two (including a flying-while-doing-it scene that left me with my jaw on the floor). I want a Bones...
One thing that did bother me about the book was that there was no Vlad. That pissed me off. I love Vlad! And I love seeing him and Bones go at it, but sadly we don't get to see him. Hopefully he'll be back by the next book, or maybe his own series will be out soon enough and then I'll be an even happier girl.
I loved every second, went through the book in a few days and can't freaking wait till the next book is out! One Grave at a Time it's the freaking number six book in the series and I still look forward to every single installment. If this series never ended I would be okay with that. More than okay in fact, ecstatic!
