Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Vaughn keeps the momentum going in the eleventh book in her long-running Kitty Norville series. Kitty is back in Denver at her job as a late-night radio host with a call-in show on the paranormal. She and her lawyer husband, Ben, are leaders of the local werewolf pack and looking to buy a house. When a new lone werewolf comes to town, he appears to be on the up-and-up, but at every turn he challenges Kitty. Meanwhile, Denver’s master vampire is visited by a member of a priestly order who tempts him to make a major change in his life. Kitty Norville fans will be glad to spend some more time with her and Colorado’s favorite paranormals in Vaughn’s latest urban fantasy. --Diana Tixier Herald --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Just like the previous books, once I started reading I couldn't put it down.

The downside of a book series is that the more books in the series, the chances are the story dilutes with each new installment.

Kitty is still an entertaining series, but overall the latest installment of the series feels more like it's simply a placeholder setting up the next book. None of the characters stretches (although one takes a complete left field turn).

As for Kitty herself, instead of coming into her own, she seems to backpedal. She's far less a leader than she is indecisive. And one would think that an alpha of any sort could make a hard decision or two. It's not that it's bad, it's not.

Kitty Rocks the House doesn't rock anything. It's like cheap take out; you may enjoy it while eating it but later you realize it didn't satisfy your hunger or cravings. It might not stop you getting it, but you'll still be hungry shortly after.

I've been following these books almost from the start and while I think I can safely say the quality of the writing has not waned, I do think the books are what they used to be. They're getting shorter and shorter; to the point where they feel more like episodes in a TV series rather than a book.

They've been giving the reader a glimpse into different parts of the character's lives and their conflict, but they no longer feel like there's an overarching plot. Any advancement of it seems incidental, presented as it is with a short recap at the start of the book and some speculation as to what follows in the epilogue. In short, while the book's main arc is still plenty interesting and the characters just as good, I think it's stagnated. The story needs something really big to push it forward and bring things to a head.

I suppose this isn't entirely miss Vaughn's fault, as this is a business and she has to milk the story for what it's worth, but I have to draw the line when, after several hundred pages and a pretty engaging story with a climactic (albeit entirely predictable) fight, Kitty and company have nonew allies; barely any new information and the only thing that could be said to advance the plot they did was move out of their condo.

In closing, I'd still recommend to get the book; it's a very good urban fantasy story and very entertaining in it's own right. That said, however, if you'd rather not wait any number of years for the plot to get anywhere, give the series a couple more books before getting them all.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The first time I ever read this series I completely fell in love with the female heroine of the story. Here was a girl faced with adversity, but strived to overcome them despite the odds, and to rise above her station to make her life better and to struggle to make the lives of other's around her better along the way. I stayed in there when everything was going wrong, reading one book addition after another, but after this last book, I finally have to call "foul".

Kitty's character, I originally thought would eventually rise even higher than what she set out to become; perhaps become the first `queen' of the werewolves, but after reading this last book, I too, am ready for some stronger `alpha' to come in and take over the pack and put this beta-weak-female out of her misery as well as mine!

She's the Alpha female of a pack of werewolves, but she refuses to kill or to fight for her place in the pack? What kind of crap, silly, stupid, nonsense is this? I fully expected Kitty to throw down and defend her place, but instead she wants to go out for coffee with the female wolf of her pack who betrays them all; since when does that happen in the wild? Anyway, enough is enough, I'm tired. The author has lost touch with what this story originally started out to be, which is a tough female lead character getting stronger and proving she has what it takes to lead the pack; after this latest edition all she's proven is that she can whine really, really good and get other people killed.

Do NOT pay full price for this novel; it is not worth it.

After so many in the series, it was hard to decide this was the last Kitty book I would read. However, the contents of Kitty Rocks the House made the decision for me. For a purported alpha, Kitty is ridiculously indecisive, unsure and meek, and I am tired of it. For instance, her Wolf always "whines." And the whole side plot involving Cormac is absolutely unbelievable: he could really take the actions that lead to such a screw up on his part, and suffer no repercussions from Rick? A Master vampire? Kitty consistently fails to act like an alpha, and Rick allows Cormac to behave as he does, with the disastrous results that Cormac engendered -- and no fallout for anyone. Then Kitty, who is so close to Rick, in no way chastises or gets angry at Cormac. I realize that not every series has the archetypal characters responding or acting in the "approved" way, but to honestly have such a puny alpha who cannot fight to defend her place, or a Master vampire who would fail to punish Cormac for his actions, is simply unthinkable. Goodbye and good luck Kitty, and may you cease being a dithering whiner for your future installments.
