Publisher's Summary

Danger waits on both sides of the grave…
Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.
With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous “ally”—the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war—to say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

Cat and Bones versus ghouls

Makes more sense if you've read/heard the earlier books in this entertaining vampire series. Enjoyable story with more on Cat and Bones' relationship. Characters who've appeared in the Night Huntress World series books 1 and 2 also appear fairly briefly (but with adequate explanation if you haven't read those). My only problem with the audiobooks is that this narrator makes Bones (a Londoner from the early 1800s) sound like the Artful Dodger (from Oliver Twist), with an improbably high and camp Cockney voice which I just can't match with the character in the book. I expected a voice a bit more like Vinnie Jones in "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels"! Spade, however, an English gentleman (a baronet) from the same period, gets a civilised deeper voice with a BBC accent, which is done well and is much easier to listen to. My 4 stars are for the book itself and the mostly very appropriate narration but it would have had 5 stars with a better voice for Bones.

another great story

another great chapter in the night huntress universe. this time we're at war with ghouls. I love how every story brings out a new dimension to the undead world, New powers or species to consider. another great story with an achingly sad loss woven in.
