More About the Author

I was born in California, but grew up all over the country, a bona fide Air Force Brat. I currently live in Colorado, with my miniature American Eskimo dog, Lily. I have a Masters in English Lit, love to travel, love movies, plays, music, just about anything, and am known to occasionally pick up a rapier.

I've never been a DJ, but I love writing about one.

In the first book we met Kitty Norville, late night radio host and werewolf. During the course of the book she managed to break away from her pack and took her radio show on the road. Now she has been moving around and finds herself summoned to Washington to appear before a Senate committee looking into the supernatural and the government's involvement. Kitty takes her show to the nation's capital and things get a little hairy.

First she meets the local vampire in control. While Kitty may be in danger, she cannot help exploring the city. She soon meets some of the local lycanthrope community. Then at the hearings she meets some characters from the first book as well as some of the Senate committee. Between local politics, witch hunts, scientific research, and some very colorful characters things come a head for Kitty and many involved.

BONUS: After the book there is a short story where Kitty does a sow on music. As a guest on the show is the group Plague of Locusts. We have heard of them in the books as they claim their bass guitarist is possessed by a demon. In this story Kitty learns the truth.

I really enjoyed this book. It is rather different from the first as Kitty is not a member of a pack, but she still has to exercise her newfound control as so many others try to control her. The ending was not an action-film ending, but is much more believable and in keeping with the world being revealed. There is also a very short excerpt from the next Kitty novel (yup, there will be more). All in all a very entertaining book with good plotting and characters. Check it out.

Our favorite werewolf DJ is at it again. This time, Kitty Norville has been summoned to Washington DC to testify before a Senate committee on paranormal biology. While there, she is taken under the wing of the city's vampire mistress, Alette. Kitty fights against Alette's controlling ways while admiring her calm strength. A hunky South American were-jaguar who pants after her, military hit men who want to kidnap her, an evil sidhe who wants to control her, and extreme religious fanatic who wants to kill her make up just a small part of the cast in this intrigue-filled romp through our nation's capitol.

While not as fun or as quick a read as the first book, Kitty and the Midnight Hour, Vaughn's second "Kitty" book is a satisfying chick-lit read. Just don't expect the hero and heroine to ride (run?) off together in a happily-ever-after ending. If you don't mind that, then definitely pick up this sequel. It's a good continuation of the first story - but is also a good stand-alone book.

Oh, and as a bonus, the author has included a short "Kitty" story at the end of the book. A quick, fun read that for all its brevity shows a keen insight into human behavior.

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Helen Hancox on March 27, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is the follow up to the wonderful "Kitty And The Midnight Hour" featuring a young werewolf who has a midnight talk radio show. In the first book Kitty found herself growing up and eventually had to leave her pack and go on the road when she felt they let her down.

"Kitty Goes To Washington" starts a month after those events when Kitty is called to testify to a senate hearing on werewolves and vampires. She arrives in Washington and spends some time as a tourist, and alongside the usual American monuments and museums she visits a Werewolf bar (where she meets the rather lovely were-jaguar Luis) and the vampire Mistress of the City, Alette, with her sidekick Leo.

However, whilst waiting to be called to testify, Kitty finds herself investigating the Rev Elijah Wood's church, breaking into a US facility with Cormac and interviewing a former Nazi werewolf. And time time for her testimony is becoming dangerously close to the full moon.

As in the former book, this is a really good fun read with some fast pacing, some interesting vignettes into werewolf life, a little love interest and a lot of amusing plot. Kitty is a great character with a winsome naivete but with a streak of iron through her too.

As an English reader I noticed a classic American mistake; Alette and Leo apparently have a "British Accent"; of course there is no such thing - there's English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish and others as well but "British" can't refer overall to one accent. Still I got the message - that they probably seem like your traditional film villain because of that accent. It also became very clear that Carrie Vaughn is a bit of a tourist herself with some very gushing descriptions of Kitty's time looking round Washington.

Kitty Norville has learned to accept that her life as a werewolf DJ is strange, but it gets a bit odder when she is called to testify before a special oversight committee of the Senate. Upon entering the city of Washington, D.C., she is stopped by a Men In Black-looking contingent and invited to enjoy the hospitality of the vampire Mistress of the City, Alette. She also meets a sexy were-jaguar named Luis at the local hangout for were-animals.

However, simply testifying before the Senate and its rabid leader, Duke, isn't complicated enough for Kitty. She also has to deal with the cult-like faith healer of vampires and werewolves, Elijah Smith, and the doctor heading up the Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology, Dr. Paul Flemming. Kitty enlists the help of Cormac (the vampire/werewolf assassin from KITTY AND THE MIDNIGHT HOUR) and her lawyer, Ben O'Farrell, but the situation gets sticky when Kitty is captured on the night of a full moon!

KITTY GOES TO WASHINGTON is the second book in Carrie Vaughn's series about a werewolf DJ whose show caters to the supernatural creatures that supposedly don't exist. The beginning of the book is a bit sluggish as Kitty is overwhelmed by D.C. and provides more information about the tourist sites than are necessary. However, once the Senate hearings really get going, the action and intrigue heat up.

Kitty is beginning to develop relationships again in this book. In the first book, she lost her best friend, TJ, when he challenged the pack leader and she ultimately lost her entire pack as well. Since then, she has traveled constantly and remained a bit of a loner. With the success of her radio show, however, Kitty is attaining more self-esteem and independence.
