Don t waste your time or money.Actually, this gif is better than the story.
There are very few book series that make me want to seek out every single piece written just so I can keep living in the characters world with them Jeaniene Frost s Night Huntress Series is one of them As many know, the series has ended but there are plenty of short stories novellas available for fans Devil to Pay is 3.5 of the series, and it s an entertaining short story featuring characters fans know and some that fans will meet for the first time The characters are likeable and complement thi [...]
5 Devil to Pay Stars Ahh we get a glimpse of Cat and Bones Yah, Ok ok so Blake is possessed by a demon, and he likes to show up and take over Blake s body and do terrible things Blake can feel when he is coming and he wants to stop it The only way he knows how is to kill himself, and he was ready to do it when Elise a vampire stumble upon him before he can.Elise wants to help so gets in contact with our favorites Cat and Bones who contact Mencheres who is also Elise sire, who help her when she w [...]
A fast paced and nice short story of Blake, possessed by a demon and saved by vampire Elise.A short appearance by Cat and Bones but it s Mancheres that plays a bigger part in this enjoyable addition to this series.
Of the Night Huntress short stories I have read so far, this is my favorite It was a complete short story of its own with characters we knew, as well as some new ones I knew there would be some sort of HEA, and it did not happen the way I was expecting Knowing what we do of Frost s supernatural world at this point in the series, I had figured on a different ending view spoiler If you must know, I had expected them to bring Blake back as a ghoul hide spoiler Overall, an enjoyable story.
Well I have yet to find a book in this world that I don t love This novella was another great addition to the series and I absolutely loved Blake and Elise.
Fast paced, short read but completely satisfied Nice to get a little Bones Cat fix
Mencheres ile ilgili daha ok ey okumak istiyorum.
This is by far my favourite novella by Jeaniene Frost to date Considering how short this is, I found Blake and Elise were both well rounded enough for me to really enjoy their growing relationship Interactions were at times a little cheesy, but when you re accelerating a romance in the space of 100 pages I guess sometimes a little cheese is good to make things stick However, of course, my favourite character was Night Huntress staple Mencheres I hear there is a Night Huntress World book focusing [...]
Elise is a vampire who is tired of everything She has shut herself away in a room underneath the subway and hasn t had much contact with vampires or humans in years But when she stumbles across a man ready to jump in front of a subway train, Elise doesn t hesitate to save him Blake wants to end it all He has been possessed by a demon and has no control over the destruction the demon has caused Elise decides she will help Blake get rid of this demon with the help of her sire, Mencheres.This is a [...]
Devil to Pay is book 3.5 in the Night Huntressseries, byJeaniene Frost This is fun read addition to the series featuring Elise a vampire and Blake who is possessed by a demon Elise who is living in an abandoned metro station and meets Blake who is determined to commit suicide to be quit of his horrible existence There are short appearances by Cat Bones along with Mencheres who supports Elise in trying to help Blake.This is a fun addition to the series and I certainly don t want to spoil it If yo [...]
Elise Blake .Part ofBones Cat made a very short appearance but this novella is focused on Elise the demon possessed Blake with Mancheres playing a bigger role than Cats Bones.Blake s dilemma is that he s possessed by demon Xaphan Elise is determined to save Blake and needed Mancheres help in the process .This is a good short read But I somehow hoped to read .Overall 3.5 stars
This little novella tells us about Elise a vampire under Mencheres s line And about Blake a demon possessed human Of course Cat and Bones have a tiny appearance This novella I would have liked also if it wouldn t have taken place in the Night Huntress Series First re read 04.02.2016Read 2013
Nice little short story that involves some new characters and a few of our series favorites.
Another fun installment in the Night Huntress world I love Jeaniene Frost s writing style and her sense of imagination In this installment our main characters are Elise and Blake, but you still get the cameo appearances of Mencheres, Bones and Cat Blake use to be an average guy He is a divorced man who was a broker leading a normal life, until a demon possessed him After several times of the demon taking over his body and spilling innocent blood Blake is at the end of his rope he has decided the [...]
Blake s life is a living hell, possessed by a demon who has turned Blake into a killer, Blake knows that he must die so that the demon will never hurt anyone again, but with the demon calling the shots it s not going to be easy When loner vampire Elise witnesses Blake s suicide attempt, the hopelessness of his situation stirs her long lost humanity and as Elise gets to know Blake and is touched by his selflessness, Elise discovers that even though she s immortal by isolating herself to protect h [...]
Short but Satisfying I delayed reading Four Dukes and a Devil because the only short story I was interested in was Cat and Bones I m so glad this novella has been separated from the other stories in that anthology Cat and Bones are not the focus of this novella, however brief the encounter, it was fantastic to get a touch of them, and it was also a fantastic treat to have Mencheres as well.It is not necessary to be familiar with the Night Huntress series in order to follow along with this novell [...]
What a sweet story Really enjoyed this one Again, it s Night Huntress World, not a Cat and Bones novella Cat and Bones appear briefly since the main heroine Elis is sired by Mencheres.Elis has always been a loner The minimum she does interact with humans is due to her maker who insists she try to mingle in the modern world All this changed when she met Blake, a human possessed by a demon making him a killer when the demon takes hold of his body.Blake had enough all he wants to do is die killing [...]
Love, loved, loved this novella Jeanine Frost weaves a delicious love story with great character development in such a short format Cat, Bones, and Menchares are all in the story and add a great touch to the story true to their characters Elise is a Menchares child and a social outcast making efforts not to isolate herself when she stumbles across Blake He has been possessed by a terrible strong demon and has been tormented for months finding the carnage he has caused when waking from his black [...]
This was a very poignant story that will take you through a variety of emotions, though largely various shades of heartbreak, tinged at times with despair While it doesn t seem to have any direct bearing on the main story of the Night Huntress series, we do see some of the characters from it Cat and Bones play a significant, if relatively brief, role, and Mencheres features prominently Even without these known characters, however, the new characters we meet here make it totally worth reading or [...]
I enjoyed this story because of the relationship twist This time its a leading female vampire and a male human Cat and Bones make a good appearance and even though the heroine isn t a ball buster like cat i believe she is strong solitude is rough, doing it for 50 years even rougher, getting out of your comfort zone of 50 years for a stranger to help them even tougher JF is always good in my opinion, its than worth a read.
A man possessed by a demon A female vampire, withdrawn from the modern world Two vulnerable people who meet under dire circumstances but are able to heal one another in the endI suppose we have the demon, Xapham to thank for this sweet love story Mencheres made a nice cameo appearance Cat and Bones were in this story too, but frankly, I could have done without that part since they didn t really add anything to the story.
What a lovely short story and hello Mencheres I loved this side line, I got rather caught up in it and it tugged on my emotions and normally short stories don t really do that but hey, we are talking Jeaniene Frost here Truly recommended to all Jeaniene Frost fans
Nice little quick read
Nice little side trip.

This novella is in the anthology Four Dukes and a Devil.I m so glad I included the novellas when I decided to re read the Night Huntress series I had forgotten how beautiful this story was Seeing a vulnerable Mencheres was nice In the books you know he cares for Bones and would do anything for him but he loves Elise like he would a daughter I just never saw him as the paternal type I always thought he was an opportunistic, manipulating prick Going back and reading these books after reading Etern [...]
Oh this book made me cry so much It was so emotional.This is a novella from the night huntress books It features, like a guest star, Bones and Cat Mencheres get a bigger role In this we meet Blake Turner who is possessed by a demon and is trying to kill himself in order for the demon to die as its making him do bad things, real bad things We also meet Elise a reclusive vampire, one who keeps to herself, that is until Blake and Elise s path cross I read this with tears in my eyes for most of it B [...]
I have read most of what this author has put forth and love her work But I found in this short story that she exceeded my expectation It has a few of the usual characters in the Cat and Bones world, but it is a beautiful stand alone.A female vampire who is content merely to exist because of tragic past circumstances comes across a human controlled by a demon who seeks to end his life to end the destruction and evil the demon is capable of The vampire takes an interest that even has her surprised [...]
