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.
When her romantic get-away with Bones turns sour, Cat discovers through Mencheres that an entire month of her life was wiped from her memory, supposedly to protect her from the vampire currently chasing her. Fighting for her life against a vampire more powerful than Bones, Cat might loose something even more precious in the process.
Frost does it again, Destined for an Early Grave was amazing, intense, breath-taking, heart-breaking and I could keep going, but I think you got the point! I’m in love head over heels with this series and I think this installment put the stakes (pun intended) higher. I came close to tears multiple time reading this book, but chapter 17 killed me, I was literally stunned and I couldn’t believe what I just read, but this wasn’t the only surprise. The plot took twist and turns I never imagined in a thousand years and I was taken by this urgent need to keep on reading and reading until the end came. And geez do I want more? Yes, Please!
Cat & Bones relationship was an insane rollercoaster ride during that book, and thanks to Jeaniene’s fabulous writing, I shared every single feeling along with Cat, I was sad, broken-hearted, stunned, pissed-off and sometimes all of the above at once. Their relationship reached a point of no return in that book and I truly can’t wait to see how both of them are gonna deal with the consequences.
I was really please to see Vlad again in that book, I love the guy so much. He is so mysterious, and even though you know he could literally burn you, you still trust him. He has an insane charisma and I was glad he was there to support Cat. I don’t think Cat would’ve grown has much if it wasn’t for him. I really hope he will get his own spin-off book sometimes, He would be one amazing character to discover.
The end was like the rest of the book aka amazing. So much tension and emotion in so few pages, I got to the last page and my reaction was: “NOOO! It’s already over!”. February can’t get around the corner soon enough if you ask me.
If you haven’t started this series yet, please run to the nearest bookstore and buy the first book. I was hooked from page one and kept on craving for more. Frost build a fantastic world full of danger, passion and adventure. Virgin eyes beware though, this is no young adult novel.
