"Kitty and the Midnight Hours is without a doubt a must read!"
Kitty and the Midnight Hour, by Carrie Vaughn, is a
fantastic book written in the first person. I
thoroughly enjoyed following Kitty's character as she
to know and accept herself for who and what she truly is,
Kitty Norville is a closet werewolf trying to hold on to
her humanity. Her greatest fear is that the wolf takes
complete control of her. But every full moon whether she
wants to or not Kitty must accept her other side...the
She is not alone in this journey like most wolves; she has
a pack that protects her. She understands with being so
to lycanthropy and her pack that her hierarchy is towards
Kitty, however, is about to move up in the world, not only
in her human life but also in the ranks of the pack. Kitty
is growing up. Her radio show has taken off as she takes
over the midnight-shift and turns it into a paranormal
show extravaganza. The ratings are climbing and the pay is
getting good. Unfortunately, her pack leader, Carl and the
Vampire leader Arturo are not entirely pleased.
While trying to maintain the fine line of her identity
her public, she accidentally reveals her true nature to
all. Now her life is being threatened while her popularity
continues to grow. The difficulty is she's not sure who
really wants her dead or out of the way. Could it be
or has her own pack turned on her?
Carrie Vaughn has written an outstanding book. Her
integration of pack dynamics and understanding the
difference between how humans deal with issues versus a
pack is both fascinating and frankly very believable.
Norville is a very down to earth character that is from
beginning of the book to the end, exceptionally developed
and evolved. Ms. Vaughn doesn't try to make Kitty
untouchable, rather she opens her up to the reader so we
can see how she thinks, feels and survives day to day with
the knowledge of the wolf living inside her.
Kitty and the Midnight Hours is without a doubt a must
read! I already have the next book; Kitty goes to
Washington, on order and can't wait to follow further in
