As I mentioned last week, for amusement – and perhaps some nostalgia – I re-wrote Cat and Bones’s first meeting from Bones’s point of view (if you haven’t read it yet, it’s HERE.) Then I posted it, thinking, “The handful of readers who still remember this book might enjoy this.”
Over five hundred of you left comments across my social media pages saying the equivalent of “MORE!” For comparison, I normally get only a few comments per blog post. I can’t tell you how touched I was reading them. After seven novels, two novellas and a book-size outtakes collection, I was pretty sure that readers had had enough of Cat and Bones. Looks like more than a few of you would disagree :). Group hug, Night Huntress fans! And, as you requested, here’s more.
ETA: The previous unrevised, unedited chapters have been taken down. You can read an extended excerpt from THE OTHER HALF OF THE GRAVE here. (link: https://www.jeanienefrost.com/books/the-other-half-of-the-grave/)
THE OTHER HALF OF THE GRAVE releases April 26th. Order yours at #Ad Amazon, B&N, Apple Books, Kobo, or your favorite retailer.
Thank you so much!!!!!!

Love Bones POV!
OMG! Thanks so much for this. If you were to do a version of Halfway to the Grave from Bone’s perspective it would be so awesome and an automatic buy for me.
Omg I SO LOVE this!! Please please PLEASE KEEP GOING!!!! I will never get enough of Cat and Bones and to be able to get his POV is awesome!!! I have yet to find another series that tops their story (and all the spinoffs) and your amazing writing. ❤️❤️❤️ Still praying that one day the entire series will be published in hardcover. 😉🙏🏻🙏🏻
More please! Would love to read the cave scene from Bones’ perspective when he realizes Cat is what she says she is. Oh, and yeah, the rest of the book too! 🙂
Catherine Wright says

Kristen Ridley says
It is SO AMAZING to get more of this story. Thank you!!!!! Can I add a vote to one of the comments from Twitter and beg you to consider giving us Bones’ perspective on the infamous “Chapter 32”???
Honestly, I would pay to read that!!!!
Omg! Now you’ve done it. Now we are gonna need the entire thing from Bones perspective. And I’m gonna need to reread the entire series. Lol PLEASE keep going!!!
Joyce Williams says

Absolutely brilliant!! Love it so much ❤️ I just can’t get enough of it.
Just love it! I miss Cat and Bones so much. I’ll take any scraps you offer. You should do the whole series from Bones POV. Or at least some of the really important/emotional chapters. I’ll have to re-read/listen to the series again. Thanks.
Omgggg please I need moree!!!
Love it!!! I love Cat and Bones I love the whole series. I read them over and over. Please write mpore from Bones point of view. I would love to see what goes through his head when Cat shows him her eyes turn vamp green.
Love love love this series I literally can’t get enough. And bones POV just makes me so excited. I’ve now read through this series about 7 times and I can’t put it down. Thank you for the in-site to bones I hope we get to see more in the future

Hola. Desde Argentina. Queremos más!!!!

I’m starting it over from the very beginning now for maybe the 4th time 😁. Absolutely love this series
Thank you, Jeaniene. Really appreciate this, what with you being on a tight schedule. Absolutely love the point-of-view change.
I would read the whole series if you rewrote it from Bones point of view. Love it.
This makes my heart happy. You know that feeling – knowing you can never relive the first time you read a book or met a character? This is such a gift; a chance to go back. Thank you so much! ❤
And there you have it. I am reinvigorated to read the entire series again for what could possibly be my 10th time. I’ve lost tract through the years. It would be so awesome if it were picked up by HBO or some other network. This would be amazing on the screen!
Heather bezecny says
In so in love with this i can’t even put it into words. I love cat and bones and i wish their journey never ends!!!
Love it! Miss Cat & Bones so much, that series is awesome💕
I will rebuy the entire series if you write it from Bones POV. I love everything to do with this couple. I keep watching the shows that come up each season and wishing that Cat and Bones was one of them. I love your work
Oh my god. Lol. Yup, I need more. I love bone!
Doing my happy dance 😁😁😁 loved it!!! Thank you soooo much 🤗
Oh how I love Cat and Bones. I was swept back in time to when I first discovered this fabulous series. Thanks and please please chapter 32 from Bones would be awesome! 😜

Would love to read more!!!! LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!

Shelly Small says

Thank you for this!! I love their story, hopefully there will be MORE :)))))

(…but it would be super awesome if you did decide to do more from Bones’ POV at some point!)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, more Bones chapters!!!!!!!
That’s it. I’m off to re-read the series for the 3rd time. Now I’m really having Cat and Bones withdrawals. Can.Not.Handle.It.
Love it! Looking forward to maybe a bit more?!!!! Please!!!!??? But I’m also waiting to hear more about Ian!!
Thank you for taking the time to write more from Bones’ POV. I hope one day you will write more of the same!
Love reading Bones’ thoughts! Thank you so much for writing these! I really enjoyed them. Would be happy to read more if you decide to do more!❤️
I could read this series over and over. How I have missed Bones and Cat! LOVE Bones’ point of view!!! MORE, MORE!! Can’t get enough!
No :O As Bones would say, Lucifers bouncing balls, you can’t just leave it like that! This was absolutly bloody brilliant!!!
Yeah …I can actually hear him saying that!!!!
Yesenia Pedrez says
I wish you would write this book from his POV !! I cant get enough of cat and bones !
Jeaniene, this was fabulous!!! If you ever have nothing to write, you should totally write the entire Cat and Bones series from his point of view because I’d totally buy it all again!!! So good!
ME TOO ME TOO I SECOND THIS!!!!!! Not that you’ll ever not have anything to write but if you ever need a break from Ian!
karen h says
I need more like the hole book I wanna know bones thought when he realizes cat is not human and when he falls in love. Also would die for vlad’s POV as well I’m curious what was going there his mind. But I beg you more for bones and cat with bones POV
Now I’m going back to reread the series. Love Bones and Cat. Keep the new POV chapters coming. I’ll read them all!!
Thank you!!!! I really loved these book.
Teresa B says
Please, please write more of their story
OH my god YES. This fuels me. You can’t imagine how I’ve waited for more Cat and Bones!!!!! The post series depression after reading those books was too real. Thank you for this lovely piece, you are awesome and I love your brain so much. *gushes* <3 <3 <3 <3
I’ve been dying for a Bones POV book for ages; thank you so much for doing this! I desperately hope that one day you’ll do the entire first book (if not more, if I dare to dream) from his POV. I’d buy the entire series all over again just for that! I love all your books, but Cat and Bones have a special place in my heart. 🙂
This is so amazing! Bones’ POV is more fabulous than I could have ever imagined! Also, this is making me want to reread the entire series again.
Thank you thank you thankyou!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please one more!!! I want to know what Bones think abouth her in the interrogatory!!!
So good!!! Thank you!!!! I want the whole book from his perspective now, but especially the cave scene!! Might need to go re-read these for the third time now! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you, now I want more of his pov. I would buy a book with Bone’s pov!
Caitlyn Dean says
This is fantastic! It would be great to read the whole interrogation from Bones perspective. Please write more!
Love it! Have to go reread now. Bones is one of my favs.
This was awesome. If there is a chance for a second chapter it would make waiting for your next book so much easier. Thanks for so many great characters!
We could never get tired of Cat and Bones!! My favorite book series for the past 10 years!! Keep it coming! ❤️
Dianely Cabrera says
Amazing! It brought me back to the first time I met Cat and Bones, almost 10 years ago! I have read and listened to the series so many times, but i may have to have another reunion with my favorite power couple! Thank you again for this! Hope you do more!
The first vampire couple that I’ve never been able to shake! The interrogation scene…the first glimpse of Bones finally falling in love after centuries of lust??? Yes, please!
However, when it comes to ALL of your characters, I’m more greedy than a fat girl eating cake. I gotta have more Jeaniene!! 😂😍
Such a talented author you are. Thank you for bringing a world of so many amazing characters and adventures to life. Well done ❤️
Ashley Rime says
Omgee I cant believe I came across this gem. Bones’ POV. I really really want to know what bones was thinking when he first beheld Cats green eyes. I’ve always imagined that that was the moment he actually fell in love with her. You write fantastic stories and I basically drool over all the snippets you post from your Night Rebel. Thank you so much.
Really like this series. Can’t wait for Ian’s book.
Suleika S says
More please! And thank you!
Geez. Leave me wanting more. Guess i need to go back and reread this much loved series. I realized I miss it soooo much.
I LOVE IT!!! (I use lots of punctuation marks too 😉) I can’t wait for more! Btw, what grammar and/or spelling errors? Lol You are amazing and look forward to you’re next masterpiece! ❤
Wanda Wygal says
I love reading everything you write. Reading from Bones’s POV is a wonderful treat. It makes me realize how much I miss Bones and Cat.
As they say, there are always two sides to every story, and it’s so interesting to get the other side of Bones and Cat. <3
Laura DeSimone says
It always wonderful to read some Bones and Cat.
Denitra Reynolds says

Christina Davenport says
I have read this series at least 10 times. It is my all time favorite series. And to get it from Bones POV. I can’t get enough. Please finish writing the rest of the series from Bones POV.
Me too! Couldn’t believe it when I saw this today! By aren’t we blogging about them again? This is def my top 2 vampire series! Love Bones & Cat and all other characters. Wish she’d come back w more!

shari piscitelli says
I love Cat and Bones and would love more! Wish you would continue from their last book. I know they have cameo appearances in other books but as far as I’m concerned, it’s not nearly enough. Thank you for write this from Bones’ perspective. Can’t wait for more!
Please do another book, on Bones and Cat.
Better still, PLEASE continue their series..
Wish this was a book I could read. I really am loving from Bones perspective.
Eu amo esta série! Ainda não acredito que acabou. Chorei muito.
Christina Lopez says
It’s so good! I love Bones. It’s great to hear his side. Poor Cat, thrown off her game. Can’t wait to read more. I appreciate you sharing this. I have read alllll of your other books. Multiple times.
Toni Thomas says
I’m a long time fan and reviewer for Amazon. ” Loves to read and review. ” Looking forward to everything you and other favorites write.
I was amazed at your comment. Handful of people remember cat & bones! That’s funny. These two are a favorite. Rank right up there with those other vampires who’s writer is from Ohio. You know the “brotherhood” who has the king, dragon, sadist, cop, half blooded queen etc. I love cat & bones and so does everyone else I know.
Bones is a hoot. Thank You for bringing them back.
Going to reread the series, especially the first book, so I can switch back and forth between Cat’s story and Bones’ story. This is definitely awesome! Thank you Jeaniene!
I hold out hope that maybe one day you’ll write more Bones and Cat. Hence why I keep re-reading all these and the books 😂
Carolyn Greenwald says
I occasionally come back here and re- read the chapters written from Bone’ s POV.So funny,snarky and GOOD.Thank you for giving us more Bones and Cat( or Kitten,lol)
Arshia Sarkar says
