Review: At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost (Night Huntress #3)

Fireworks: Character sparks

Fireworks: Character sparks It’s Independence Day here in the U.S., and that means all sorts of good summer-y things. There will be barbecue action, sunshine and fireworks. I’m big on fireworks. Though, we’re not allowed to set off our own displays here in Texas (we’re in a drought, so there is a burn ban in effect), I’ll be taking the husband to watch the city’s big display later tonight. How can...

Sure, the love triangle is a tried plot point in romance. To the point it can be tired if not done right (or at least uniquely). That’s the beauty of the love push-and-pull in Nightshade, it’s a true triangle. Both options are good. It’s one book where...
