Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father--the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner--are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

My Thoughts
Have you ever seen series EVERYWHERE, but for some strange reason never got around to reading it.  That has been the case with this reviewer and the Night Huntress series.  After reading this, the first book in the saga; this is now a new love and forever favorite on my reading list.

Catherine takes a little getting used to.  She is not only a tortured soul, but also very sheltered and naive.  The juxtaposition of these qualities against her vigilante vampire hunter persona Cat, presents quite the puzzle and makes plenty of room for the growth that or young heroine experiences as her story unfolds.
Things really start to get interesting with the introduction of master vampire "Bones".  After she tries and fails to kill him; a bargin is struck that changes their lives forever.
She agrees to work for him as a vamp bounty hunter and he steals her heart.
Readers will love seeing the sensitive side of this brooding biter.  As he strips away her defenses, and she works her way under his skin; the fires of their passions ignite.  Add to this the nonstop action of her training and their vamp hunting escapades and this book is beyond... 

This book has everything.  There is mystery, action, romance,murder,humor and suspense.   By the end of the book; Cat is very secure in who she is and very much in love.  Due to some very WTF occurrences and plot twists that you have to read to believe; readers are left with a truly heart breaking end.

Audiobook Review
Tavia Gilbert is an excellent voice.  There is no 
question that her vocal variation will bring this read to life.  Her accents and fluid reading style
is flawless whether the characters  be male or female.
She is one of the best!

I completely agree with this review! I read this as an ebook a year ago and I've been hooked in this series ever since. Might consider hearing the audiobook, I'm sure it would be worth it.
