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.

Kitty Norville is back in her sixth and most exciting adventure yet, a continuation of her Las Vegas tribulations in Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand. Her temporary defeat of the vampire priestess was just that, a non-permanent solution, and trailing her back to Denver is a fire-creature bent on destroying Kitty and her Pack. She is far from without her share of allies, however - the crew of a paranormal television series backs her up, as well as new-husband Ben and old vampire allies.

This is my favorite Kitty book to date, and I adored how the vampire political intrigue plotlines of the previous books continued through to Raises Hell. The "villain" is one of the best yet, inscrutable and nebulous in motives, as is as Kitty's maybe-ally, Roman, who offers his assistance to the Pack Alpha and Denver's master vampire, Rick.

Better than amazing writing from one of the best writers in the paranormal and urban fantasy genres, this book will blow you away. Perfect marks - don't miss it!

Kitty and Vaughn are still going strong, in this reader's opinion. I will agree with other reviewers on reading this one after Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand to catch some of the background nuances and for a proper intro to a couple of interesting new characters Kitty met in Vegas. I do think this chapter of Kitty's life as a werewolf is stronger than ever, the mystery is challenging to solve, the dangers thrilling, and the appearance of new characters mixed with favorites adds variety to the story without taking away from anyone. One thing about the latest Kitty, which I am very grateful for is this: Vaughn continues to focus on the mysteries and problems Kitty encounters in her world, romance is present but not overwhelming. In fact, Kitty's relationship with Ben comes across as very realistic; they have the same issues any other newly wed couple might have and the author seems to be resisting the recent lemming-like charge of other paranormal writers towards more and more romanticized relationships in their urban fantasy series. I, for one, am extremely grateful and I can only say, MORE Kitty and the Show that Isn't afraid of the Dark please!!! And a sincere thank you to Vaughn for staying true to the characters, the gritty reality of Kitty's world I have come to know and love! I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys Jim Butcher's Dresden Files & Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One thing that I really like about Vaughn's Kitty series is that even with Kitty's ability to attract supernatural trouble, the stories about werewolf radio talk show host Kitty Norville have such a reality to them that I'd expect to be able to turn on the radio Friday nights and catch Kitty's show. Kitty Raises Hell continues the story begun in Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand (Kitty Norville, Book 5) - Kitty's attempt to skip over all the wedding planning hassle and head straight to the honeymoon by eloping to Vegas with her mate Ben - if you read the book you know how well that worked out for her.

Kitty Raises Hell picks up right after her return from Sin City and though she's breathing a sigh of relief that she made it back to Denver with her fur intact ... (sorry, even though it's on the back cover blurb, I just have to add my own mangled misquote here) ... not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. It looks like the feline shifter death cult is out for revenge and they plan on making Kitty pay slowly, by taking out Kitty's pack and every thing that she loves first and then finally Kitty herself.

The real difference between Kitty Raises Hell and the previous book -- and this difference makes this an even better book -- is that in Vegas events just happen to Kitty and Kitty survives because she gets lucky, here Kitty takes charge. With her pack on the line, Kitty exercises her power and uses her resources to not only figure out what she's up against in the mysterious invisible malicious entity who smells of fire, but also to give herself a fighting chance of winning the battle with the vengeful spirit.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. I didn't just enjoy it, I devoured it. I left "Kitty and The Dead Man's Hand" feeling a little out of sorts. I just didn't think it was quite up to the usual Kitty tale. After reading "Kitty Raises the Bar", I feel like DMH is sort of an intro. In "Kitty Raises Hell", Kitty and Ben are back from their wild experience in Las Vegas. They have injured, but not fully stopped, a strange cult of sorts. Now, the cult has sent something, strange even by Kitty's standards, after everything Kitty loves. Feeling like maybe Kitty can't protect them, tension begins in the pack. There also seems to be some new tension between Kitty and Ben. Add into that mixture, a sci-fi reality show cast who hunts down things that go bump in the night, and we have a full on-heady plot that NEVER slows down. I even got a couple brief vistis with my favorite paranormal main character, Cormac, who seems like he has some things going on as well! (new plot featuring Cormac, yippee!) So, even though I tried to find something negative to balance out my review, I just couldn't do it. This series as a whole, has gone from being one I liked, to one of my top 3 or 4 favorites. I'm sorry we have to wait until 2010 to see "Kitty's House of Horrors", which is my favorite title so far.
