"Originally appeared in the print anthology The Bite Before Christmas.

'Tis the season to join Cat and Bones for some holiday cheer in this Night Huntress novella by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost.

They were looking forward to a normal holiday—at least as "normal" as it gets for vampires Cat and Bones and their otherworldly friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a mysterious stranger shows up and reveals long-buried secrets that threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer … and lives."

My Thoughts:

This was a fun little novella in the Night Huntress world and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to have this novella to dive into before reading the final book in the series. I am really dreading saying goodbye to these characters.

I loved watching Cat stand on her own in this one. She has to save Bones and it’s clear that she will stop at nothing to do so. I love that she is a heroine who can take care of herself and is capable of being the one to save the day. This book made me so nervous for Bones though and had my heart in my throat. I think my favorite thing with this one is that we got to see another side to Ian. He is a pain in the ass but he is a fun pain in the ass. He has come a long way from when we first met him in book two. I find him so funny.

All in all, this was a nice addition to the Night Huntress series. I’m sure I’ve made it clear by now, but I just love everything this series has to offer and I’ll take these characters any way I can get them.


  1. Oh this sounds cute! I do miss Cat and Bones! I still need to read the final book in the series. I should try to do that soon. I wasn't crazy about the last couple of books, but I still love being with them.

  2. I really REALLY need to pick up this series! I have the first book, so now I just need to actually pick it up! Hopefully soon 'cause I have a feeling I'm really going to enjoy this series!!

    Lovely review!

  3. don't want to say goodbye. That says a lot about a series. Love those extra little novellas to add just a little more to the ones we love so much.

  4. I'm glad you enjoyed this novella, Teresa. You have me nervous though. I'm still a few books behind in this series - and I don't want to see it end either. *sniff* Cat and Bones are one of my all-time favorite couples. :)

  5. I wonder if they have this series on audio, bc I'd like to give it a try.

    1. I listened to the whole series on audio and HIGHLY recommend it. Tavia Gilbert does he narration and she is phenomenal!

  6. Love the sound of this novella! I can't wait to start this series, and I'm so happy to have this extra little book to look forward to. Very glad you enjoyed it and got another helping of Cat and Bones. Awesome review, lobster! *smoosh*
