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.
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.

"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.Read more ›
That said, there was still plenty of question throughout about the good guy/bad guy status of new characters, which is entertaining, and makes the cast feel more complex, which is good. They're more 'real', or at least as real as a set of lycanthropes and vampires can seem, I suspect.
So, I good effort, and I am looking forward to the next installment.
