Up From The Grave Cover

Last week, Jeaniene Frost revealed the cover for her next Night Huntress book, Up From The Grave.  Yes, this is a Cat & Bones book.  And yes, we are just a little bit excited about that.  😉

Here is the cover and the stepback:


There’s always one more grave to dig.

Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear— will be hovering on the edge of the grave.


Up From The Grave is the seventh installment in the series (there will be nine) and is due to release January 28th 2014.  That’s okay.  We’ve waited since August 2011 for a new Cat & Bones book and we can wait this much longer.  (repeat this to yourself a few times a day and eventually you’ll believe it ;))

Yes, the new cover features the same model as on this one:


But how about the other covers?  Do you guys have a favorite cover from the series?

I can’t say that the woman on any of the first covers really matches Cat for me in my head but the one from One Grave at a Time and Up From the Grave comes closest.  As for which is my favorite…  There are elements from a few covers that I love.  I love the color of the newest cover.  I love the pose and the kitty on the last one.  I also like the post on One Foot in the Grave and At Grave’s End.  So for me, not really one favorite, no.

What about you?  Do you have a favorite cover?  And are you guys looking forward to a new Cat & Bones?

Happy Weekend!


  1. At Grave’s End is my favorite. The pose is atypical, powerful, and looks as though Cat could launch into immediately into attack. She seems almost feline, crouched to spring. Cool.

  2. Jessica says:

    I LOVE the new cover. The model has such a youthful innocence about her. The youth works as Cat is actually very young, the innocence… not so much. I still like it better than the original covers. They all looked too “80s” to me and Cat looked too old, imo. I think my favorite cover was One Grave At a Time. It has the pretty, red haired model, but she looks more experienced. And my least favorite would be At Grave’s End where Cat looks like a 40 year old chain smoker that drives a semi.

    How did you picture Bones? Somehow he always ended up looking like Spike from the old Buffy series in my mind. : )

    Not sure how excited I am about this book though. Sadly I think this series may have reached it’s retirement age for me.

  3. It has been soooo long since we have had a new Cat and Bones book, I am so freaking excited! And I love the new cover!!

    As for a FAVORITE cover, how bout the inside picture that goes with the cover for One Grave at a Time…Cat and Bones together. Hot!
