Character Connection is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at The Introverted Reader every Thursday. It’s where we get to discuss our favorite book characters and what we love about them!
I just reread the first four books of the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost in preparation for the fifth book’s publication in February 2011. I absolutely can’t wait for the next book!
Well, since my head is full of the world Frost created, I decided the only character I could possibly discuss for Character Connection is Bones (or, to be more formal, Crispin)! To go along with this, look for reviews of all four books coming up next!
How to describe Bones? It really is hard to find words. When authors, readers and critics talk about the chemistry between fictional characters, they might not have read these books, but they are talking about the connection Frost forges between her main characters, Cat and Bones. I’ve read a lot of books – including a lot of romance novels. Let me tell you, there is nothing – NOTHING – like the chemistry between these two characters. When I read these books, I can actually physically feel the bond they share.
Bones is one heck of a dynamic guy. He is absolutely hilarious, unquestionably loyal and most likely demented. He is one of the most interesting and entertaining characters I’ve ever had the joy of getting to know. Before I started this series, I thought the Sookie Stackhouse series would always hold the top spot as far as adult paranormal series go. I don’t think I’d gotten halfway through Halfway to the Grave, the first book in this series, before I started telling people to forget Sookie and read these instead.
He is crafty and manipulative – once Cat appears on his radar he has a single minded focus – he wants her. Luckily for him, he is basically irresistible. She is a force to be reckoned with herself, but even she didn’t stand a chance.
I don’t want to get too specific here, because I want everyone to read the books and meet Bones for yourself, I just hope I’ve got you interested enough to give them a shot! If you do give this series a chance, you’ll be coming back to thank me – I guarantee it!
