"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 comes to know and accept herself for who and what she truly is, a werewolf.

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 wolf. She is not alone in this journey like most wolves; she has a pack that protects her. She understands with being so new to lycanthropy and her pack that her hierarchy is towards the bottom.

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 talk 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 with 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 Arturo 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. Kitty Norville is a very down to earth character that is from the 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 Kitty's footsteps.

Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station--and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts "The Midnight Hour," a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success. But it's Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew…
