As such, when Kitty transforms and lets her Wolf loose, the narrative style changes as well—in wolf form, Kitty refers to her actions in the third person.
She crouches breathing deep through bared teeth. Teeth and face growing longer, and the hair, and the eyes. Then she leaps, the Wolf is formed and running, four legs feel so natural, so splendid, pads barely touching the earth before they fly again….

I awoke human in the gray of dawn. The Wolf lingered, bleeding into my awareness, and I let her fill my mind because her instincts were better than mine…. Verdict: This book took me by surprise. But I have to say, I really liked this book, and I immediately rushed out to buy book 2! This is a very, very good book.
Highly recommended! Thea James is half of the maniacal book review duo behind The Book Smugglers.

By day, she does digital operations things over at Penguin Random House. I just finished Chapter 1 of this, picked up on a whim, and here you are reviewing it! This sounds really interesting. Going straight onto my wishlist—thanks! Heather—I know the feeling!
Even though I had friends that kept telling me I would love this series, I resisted for a long time because I had the very wrong impression that these were chick-lit paranormals. And a little of those goes a long way. But once I read the first, I ran back out and bought the rest. SO unique!

Great review! Bev—I completely understand where you are coming from! I read the fourth one when it came out in January, and just found it a bit dull — and one of the secondary characters was of the Too Stupid To Live variety. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

I just hate it when books need hand waving to set up the world, and I feel like this is what that is. Along those lines, this world and the people that live in it just feel underdeveloped.cars.cleantechnica.com/siempre-has-sido-t-la-historia-de-amor.php
Kitty Norville Series Audiobooks | deotecitpingback.ga
No one outside of the obvious bad guys has any real personality to speak of. Rick the vampire likes to slink in and out of the shadows. Well, I take it back. Not only does she call her Wolf, but sections in which she shifts are done by having her talk about herself in the third person.
The unfortunate thing about this is that all the growth in the book seems to be done by her wolf. Case and point: the current Alpha of her pack is a real sleeze ball who sleeps with whatever females in the pack that he wants to, more or less because he can. Throughout the book the wolf basically rolls over and opens her legs and feels happy because…submissive? Not only does this rob Kitty of growth, but it just adds this creepy layer to her having sex with Carl that makes it feel dangerously close to rape.
Sin City has never been so wild, and this werewolf has never had to fight harder to save not only her wedding, but her very life. Starting at the next full moon, danger and destruction the form of fire strikes Kitty and the pack of werewolves she's sworn to protect. She enlists the help of a group of TV paranormal investigators—one of whom has real psychic abilities—to help her get to the bottom of the curse that's been laid on her.
Rick, the Master vampire of Denver, believes a deeper plot lies behind the curse, and he and Kitty argue about whether or not to accept the help of a professional demon hunter —and vampire—named Roman, who arrives a little too conveniently in the nick of time.
Unable to rely on Rick, and unwilling to accept Roman's offer of help for a price, Kitty and her band of allies, including Vegas magician Odysseus Grant and Kitty's own radio audience, mount a trap for the supernatural being behind the curse, a destructive force summoned by the vengeful cult, a supernatural being that none of them ever thought to face. Talk radio host and werewolf Kitty Norville has agreed to appear on TV's first all-supernatural reality show. She's expecting cheesy competitions and manufactured drama starring shapeshifters, vampires, and psychics.
But what begins as a publicity stunt will turn into a fight for her life. The cast members, including Kitty, arrive at the remote mountain lodge where the show is set. As soon as filming starts, violence erupts and Kitty suspects that the show is a cover for a nefarious plot. Then the cameras stop rolling, cast members start dying, and Kitty realizes she and her monster housemates are ironically the ultimate prize in a very different game. Stranded with no power, no phones, and no way to know who can be trusted, she must find a way to defeat the evil closing in.
Three Army soldiers recently returned from the war in Afghanistan are being held at Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs. They're killer werewolves—and post traumatic stress has left them unable to control their shape-shifting and unable to interact with people. Kitty agrees to see them, hoping to help by bringing them into her pack.
Kitty and the Midnight Hour
Meanwhile, Kitty gets sued for libel by CEO Harold Franklin after featuring Speedy Mart--his nationwide chain of hour convenience stores with a reputation for attracting supernatural unpleasantness--on her show. Very bad weather is on the horizon. Her recent run-in with werewolves traumatized by the horrors of war has made her start wondering how long the US government might have been covertly using werewolves in combat. Have any famous names in our own history might have actually been supernatural?

She's got suspicions about William Tecumseh Sherman. Then an interview with the right vampire puts her on the trail of Wyatt Earp, vampire hunter. But her investigations lead her to a clue about enigmatic vampire Roman and the mysterious Long Game played by vampires through the millennia. That, plus a call for help from a powerful vampire ally in San Francisco, suddenly puts Kitty and her friends on the supernatural chessboard, pieces in dangerously active play.
And Kitty Norville is never content to be a pawn. The conference brings together scientists, activists, protestors, and supernatural beings from all over the world—and Kitty, Ben, and Cormac are right in the middle of it. Master vampires from dozens of cities have also gathered in London for a conference of their own. With the help of the Master of London, Kitty gets more of a glimpse into the Long Game—a power struggle among vampires that has been going on for centuries—than she ever has before. In her search for answers, Kitty has the help of some old allies, and meets some new ones, such as Caleb, the alpha werewolf of the British Isles.
