Both Feet in the Grave: Night Huntress, Book 10 by Jeaniene Frost
Narrated by Will Watt
Retelling of One Foot In The Grave (Book 2 of Night Huntress Series) from the Male POV.
The Night Huntress Series by Jeanine Frost has been my favorite series since 2008. Even when I stopped reading vampire books, this was one series I continued. The original series is told from half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s POV. Both Feet in the Grave is a modernized retelling of the second book in the series, One Foot In The Grave, from Bones’s POV. I loved the first retelling, The Other Half of the Grave, so I had high expectations for this one, and it lived up to it!
“Her courage was one of the reasons Bones had fallen in love with her…and her recklessness was why he’d never known a night’s peace since.”
All of the excitement, humor, action and romance of the series is there, and if it’s even possible, I love Bones more! I never felt like I was reading a repeat of the original book. It was a whole different perspective of all the events that happened, and lots of new information. I can easily say I love it just as much this way as I loved the original.
While Bones seemed so suave and experienced in the originals, you get to see how much he loved Cat and how protective he felt of her. We also get to see when he screws up! The famous chapter 32 was there as well. It was still hot, but it was way hotter in the original. That’s literally the only slight negative I had about Both Feet In The Grave. But honestly, not much can live up to the original!
It would have been easy to disappoint fans when retelling such a beloved series, but let me tell you, Jeaniene Frost has made these retellings just as good as the originals from Cat’s point of view. I so hope she continues telling these from Bones’s POV.
Both Feet In The Grave is the second book Jeaniene has written in the male POV. While I think you can start reading it this way, I would read the series in order the way it was published. If you haven’t read this series at all, I want to say take your time and savor it, but these books are very quick-reading and unputdownable, so I think that would be impossible!
I read very little fantasy or paranormal nowadays, but let me tell you, Jeaniene Frost’s entire Night Huntress Series and all its spinoffs would be my number one recommendation.
Will Watt narrated as Bones and he was just perfect. His voice will always be Bones to me now.
