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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kitty Norville, werewolf and radio talk show hostess, seems to be doing very well. Her new book "Underneath the Skin" is just about to be released, her radio show "The Midnight Hour" is still a big success, and she's now got her own boyfriend--and built in pack in Ben.

Then she gets the call from her Dad. Her Mom's got breast cancer and is due for surgery. She and Ben drop everything and head back to Denver.

The old saying "you can never go home" is literally true for Kitty. Her old werewolf pack, led by Carl and Meg, is in Denver. If she returns, Carl will consider it an invasion of his territory and act accordingly.

Add to that, Kitty's approached by her friend Rick the Vampire. Rick's planning on taking over the city of Denver from the current Master Vampire, Arturo. Will she take sides with him in exchange for protection?

As usual, Carrie Vaughn has created a pageturner. "Kitty and the Silver Bullet" kept me up til 2:00 AM to finish.

In my opinion, Ms. Vaughn does some of the best world-building in urban fantasy today. She's taken very logical steps with cause and effect to generate some very plausible scenarios in how a post-paranormal world would develop. In "Kitty and the Midnight Hour," Kitty's radio show introduced the world to paranormals. Following in logical order, "Kitty Goes to Washington" has Kitty lobbying Congress to get vampirism and lycanthropy acknowledged as diseases to obtain research funds and help for sufferers. In this book, she carries that to its next logical step. Denver, CO is going to have a Paranormal Division in its Police Department and Detective Hardin is going to head it.

Her character development is also stellar. Kitty starts out as a beta wolf, abused by her pack leader, Carl.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kitty has been on the run after escaping a confrontation with her evil alpha in the first book, now her mother's illness draws Kitty home into a Denver on the verge of a vampire turf war with her old pack leader and his dirty tricks firmly supporting the status quo. While the apparent loss of control over the vampires of the city by current vamp leader is the reason for the attempted coup, it is the deterioration of Kitty's former pack that draws Kitty into the battle. The last time Kitty battled her alpha, she was firmly entrenched in her submissive role as low wolf in the pack and barely left with her life. Now her wolf has grown up and though her human half is still a little slow in catching up, when Kitty tries to aid an abused new wolf Jenny to escape from the pack, Kitty finally grows a spine and becomes the alpha her wolf knows she can be.

I loved this latest installment in Vaughn's Kitty Norville series and really all the books leading up to this one have served the purpose to develop Kitty's character and support group to bring her to this point prepared to take the final steps that complete her growth and strengthen Kitty's resolve. I loved how Kitty's transformation brings closure and clarity to so many areas of her life, including her relationships with Ben and Cormac, and now I can't wait to see where the new and improved Kitty goes from here. Vaughn does a great job of bringing this character and series to life. The books have such a 'reality' to them that it seems like I should be able to tune Kitty in at midnight and hear her give common sense advice to 'weres' and 'vamps'. I am glad Kitty finally took some of her own advice here.

I just finished the fourth book in the Kitty Norville series earlier today. The first two were a little slow for me, and I couldn't put down the last two! I was very interested in Kitty's growth from vulnerable follower to independent individual to strong leader, and this series has not let me down. As for the book... the homecoming, the family story, the paranatural war, and the relationships kept me entertained. Kitty's personal issue was unexpected, and it also added depth to the book.

There are a couple of things that took away from the good storytelling. Although I have a degree in English myself and understood the narrator's literary allusions, I still found them a bit pretentious for commercial fiction. Even if you understand the references, in my opinion, they disrupt the flow of the story and immersion in the world of the Kitty novels for the reader. I also noticed a few typos (which should have been caught in editing); this is minor, however, as many novels these days are unapologetically littered with them, so one or two typos is nothing at all.

While this can be either a positive or a negative quality, this novel was formulaic; for me, this was positive and made the novel more enjoyable. The Return Song is a popular story-pattern in oral-derived literature, consisting of an absence, devastation in the absence of the hero, the hero's return, retribution or restoration of order, and... well, I'll leave out the last one since it's a spoiler. :o) I was pleasantly surprised by its use when I finished the novel.

This series ranks as one of my top favorites in the Urban Fantasy genre. If you haven't read it already, do yourself a favor and read it!

Thank you, Ms. Vaughn, for the hours of entertainment you have provided me with, and I look forward to your next novel!
