What I thought about Outtakes from the Grave

The Night Huntress series from Jeaniene Frost was one of two paranormal romance series that helped reboot my fiction reading after many years of being away from it, so this series will always have a place in my heart.  Having read many of the deleted scenes from the old Frost fans website, I wondered how much additional content would be in this selection of outtakes. (Seriously, I'd take more of these characters any day of the week.)

It was great to spend some time again with Cat and Bones and I really truly enjoyed this book.  I ended up going cover to cover in one day with it, because it was a very pleasant reading experience and I just couldn't put it down.

Each outtake starts out with a few pages from Jeaniene Frost where she sets up the scene and explains why it was cut from the published version.  These pages were golden in my humble opinion.  Ms. Frost gives the reader an insider's view of the writing process with these outtakes, and that is the gift of this book.  

The outtake scenes are sometimes funny and also show a version of Cat that is slightly different from the published version. Fans of the series will be able to tell just how Cat changed from her early versions and that was a lot of fun too.  And where would Cat be without Bones?  Yes, he's in many of these outtakes, in all his alpha Cat-loving glory and I'll bet you get the urge to reread this series when you read these outtakes.  

Overall, this is a very nice engaging and enjoyable read and I highly recommend it for fans of the series. Not only do you get more lovely Cat and Bones, you get a great view into the writing process. Thanks Jeaniene Frost, for this gift to your fans.  Rated 5 stars for the enjoyment factor.

And if you haven't read this series, start at the beginning and finish with this one, you won't be sorry. It's a must-read if you like paranormal romance.
