Synopsis: From the New York Times bestselling author of the Night Huntress series comes a thrilling new look at the iconic origin story of Cat and Bones, as experienced by Bones…from the other half of the grave.
There are two sides to every story–and the sizzling British alpha vampire, Bones, has a lot to say…
Ever wondered what Bones was thinking and feeling when he and half-vampire Cat Crawfield first met? Or how their story might differ if he were the one telling it? Now, relive the beginning of Cat and Bones’ bestselling love story through Bones’ point of view, which reveals a darker, sexier take on their early days, as well as a deeper dive into Bones’ past, the vampire world, and other things that Cat didn’t see when their story was told only through her eyes in Halfway to the Grave.
Cat had her say. Now, it’s Bones’ turn.

Bones inhaled. Her scent was now so closely mixed with his that it was something entirely new. Not hers, not his, but their scent, and he inhaled it again. He might continue breathing the rest of the night just to keep absorbing it.The Other Half of the Grave – Jeaniene Frost
My Rating: ★★★★★
Thank you to NetGalley, Jeaniene Frost, and NYLA for the DRC of The Other Half of the Grave.
First of all, you need to have read at least the first book of Frost’s Night Huntress series before reading The Other Side of the Grave. Go on! Go read it. I promise you won’t regret it.
The Other Side of the Grave retells the events of Halfway to the Grave from Bones’ perspective. We get to see what he was up to when Cat wasn’t around and what was going on inside his devilish little mind during their interactions. I absolutely LOVED seeing his side of things. We also get a few things explained about Halfway to the Grave that Cat wasn’t aware of or never figured out.
My only issue is that Bones is already a well-rounded and developed character from the moment he shows up. He’s a guiding force for Cat’s story so we don’t get much character growth with Bones other than him falling in love. It occasionally felt like we were just following Bones around doing stuff cause he was always so sure of himself and his actions.
Having said that though, I freaking LOVED this book. It was amazing to see Bones falling for Cat and if Frost decided to write more of the series from his perspective I will definitely be reading them. Halfway from the Grave does end on a cliffhanger that would have made the ending for The Other Half of the Grave a bit depressing but Frost very cleverly included an epilogue featuring an early scene from One Foot in the Grave that makes the ending to this book just wonderful.
