Cat and Bones have been through a lot in the seven Night Huntress novels. Now, here we are at the final book, and readers had to wonder if they could say goodbye to these two. Hell, would we really be leaving the same characters we’ve fallen in love with?

Yes. Unequivocally yes.

This book, you guys. This book. We’ve seen so many series end on a whimper, but can you honestly see Cat and Bones doing anything half-assed? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

The beautiful thing about this series-ending novel is that it brings together everything we’ve loved about this series. Jeaniene Frost takes us down memory lane with nuance and care. Every element that’s a callback to a prior book is pivotal to the plot instead of being a “hey remember that time…” bone thrown to fans. Read the rest at Heroes & Heartbreakers.

    Love these books can’t believe they are over already. But I understand some series go on past their prime glad jeaniene frost had the forethought to stop while they were still amazing and not when they go stale. Still with that said I’m gonna miss Cat and Bones.

  2. I hate to say good-bye as well! They were always my favorite couple. OTOH…I don’t like it when series run on for too long. The story can get stale after a while. I just hope that Frost has something else up her sleeve. A new series by her would be terrific.

    I’ve had this book for 2 weeks now and I can’t bring myself to read it. It’s been sitting on my coffee table, judging me.
    I’m having the worst case of book anxiety. :-/

    Did you read the same book I did? No spoilers here, but I really think this series could have ended better. It’s almost like someone else wrote it, and from other reviews I read on Amazon I’m not alone in my head-scratching. I’ll stick with Jeaniene Frost through the other series, but I’m gun shy now. Cat & Bones deserved a better send-off.

      spoilder alert!

      I agree I wish there was more to it then on a boat and happily ever after. =\ I just wasn’t ready to let go of them both expecially bones and I don’t like how when he dies this book shes not oerly emotional like last time what changed? It was a bit hard for me to be happy about the finish.
