Literature: Night Huntress
The clock struck eleven and Cat the vampire huntress was on the loose, except my battle armor was a push-up bra, curled hair, and a short dress. Yeah, it was a dirty job, but I was going to do it.
—Cat Crawfield, Halfway to the Grave
An Urban Fantasy
series of books written by Jeaniene Frost, following the adventures of Catherine "Cat" Crawfield, a half-vampire, and Bones/Crispin Russell, a Master vampire bounty hunter. These books are told from Cat's point of view. The Night Huntress World
books are set in the same universe, but feature supporting characters in the main roles.
Cat Crawfield is a Half Vampire
who hunts her father's kind in order to avenge her mother's supposed
rape. Then she meets Bones, a vampire bounty hunter who offers to train her in exchange for her help hunting down a particularly evil group of vampire criminals. Cat agrees, on the basis that the enemy of her enemy is the lesser of two evils, but the longer she knows Bones, the more she begins to question her closely-held belief that all
vampires are evil.
Later, the FBI makes Cat an offer she can't refuse—lead and train their team of vampire hunters or go to prison. Special Agent Crawfield and her hand-picked team succeed beyond their expectations, but she still has unresolved issues with more than one vampire in her life. The series itself is seven novels, with four spinoff novels and some short stories and novellas.
