Quick Review: Destined for an Early Grave
Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they've fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it's time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She's having visions of a vampire named Gregor who's more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn't know about. Gregor believes Cat is his and he won't stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor's hold over her. She'll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she's ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave.
I really like this series. I really do, but this installment left me feeling a bit...meh. Cat and Bones kind of didn't sparkle as much as they usually do. I think the arguments where a bit forced and didn't really make sense to me. Now don't get me wrong, the PLOT was still really good. I just afraid that the main characters didn't do it for me this time. I hate to say that, because I usually love the CRAP out of Cat, but there was something missing.
I do wonder how the events that take place in this book are going to effect the next few books! Some really interesting shizz goes down in Destined for an Early Grave, but all in all I think this one is not my favorite of the series. I'm hoping it's just a hiccup in what has been up until now a delicious treat of a book series!
