Night Huntress World Series Guide

Posted October 12, 2018 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Front Page, Reading on the Dark Side, Under the Covers / 4 Comments

WARNING: This may contain spoilers! I have tried to keep it as spoiler free as possible. However, there is inevitably information here that will give you a glimpse into events that occur within the series. 

Vampires are evil. At least that is what Cat Crawfield has been told and being half vampire herself, it makes her a little conflicted. However, her world is turned upside down when she meets Bones. Bones is a vampire and he shows her that vampires aren’t what she think and definitely aren’t what she’s been told. As she gets deeper into the vampire world and all the creatures and people who inhabit it, she realises that the world is far more complex then she could imagine.

If you want a romantic urban fantasy, which in no way stints on an action packed story line then Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress World is for you. It’s an Under the Covers favourite as not only do we get romance, humour and a great story, but the characters that Frost build through the interconnected series are some of the most enduring we’ve read. It’s also the only series I know, where you can name a specific chapter and people know EXACTLY what you mean. Chapter 32 anyone?

The Night Huntress World comprises of a few series, all of which are connected by the characters and the world. The series are:

  • Night Huntress (Cat and Bones)
  • Night Huntress World (Spade and Denise, Mencheres and Kira) 
  • Night Prince (Vlad and Leila)
  • Night Rebel (Ian and Veritas)
