LOOKING AFTER FAMILY
A short story told from both Cormac and Ben's point of view, describes the time when Cormac first moves in with the O'Farrell's after Cormac's dad is killed by a werewolf. Young Ben wants to be friends again with Cormac, like they were prior to his dad's death, but he's finding it hard to relate to Cormac. Cormac's just trying to figure things out in his head while still continuing what his dad taught him, hunt werewolves on the full moon. Ben convinces Cormac to let him go with during a nighttime hunt and it might be the first time Cormac's eyes are opened up about who he's really hunting, and not what. When a werewolf and his human brother find themselves staring at Cormac's gun, things that Ben says makes Cormac pause. He mentions that the werewolf, once shot, will turn into a human and that he needs to just let them both go. Everything Cormac was taught he started questioning that night and it ended up being a new start to his and Ben's friendship.Read more ›
"Il Est Ne" - Being a werewolf is new to David. He can't control his changes; he has no pack. He thinks he'll never lead a normal life again. Then, he meets Kitty at a Waffle House on Christmas. She recognizes what he is and tries to guide him. As they talk, news reports come in, of a series of deadly attacks in the area. David immediately wonders if he is to blame. So he and Kitty work together to solve the murders. (This story takes place after the events of Kitty and The Midnight Hour.)
"Conquistador de la Noche" - This is the story of how Ricardo de Avila became a vampire. Yes, we're talking about Rick. He was one of Coronado's men, exploring the new world. After 10 years, he was approached by an old friend and lured to a neighboring village. It turns out that Diego is a vampire. Ricardo found out when Diego and three of his vampire friends attacked him and changed him against his will. The other men thought that once he was turned, Ricardo would be content to kill and plunder at their sides. They were wrong. Ricardo is made of sterner stuff. And while he'll never be human again, he won't be the evil thing they expected him to be.
"Looking After Family" - THIS is the kind of story I had in mind for this book. It's a little peek into the history of Cormac and Ben. It takes place right after Cormac's father is killed and he goes to live with Ben's family.Read more ›
Here's Kitty's Hit List:
Il Est Ne (in Wolfsbane and Mistletoe) - Facing a lonely Christmas in a diner, Kitty helps another werewolf recapture his humanity. I think I liked this one better the second time 'round, since I wasn't expecting a slice of the series and the shifter's plight is very sympathy stirring.
A Princess of Spain (in The Secret History of Vampires) - Not a Kitty story, instead a vampire plays a part in a historical story involving Catherine of Spain and King HenryVIII - this was okay but didn't really seem to belong here
Conquistador de la Noche (Subterranean Online, Spring 2009) Vampire Rick's background is explored a bit here, this was interesting and I would love more of Rick.
Book of Daniel (Talebones #39, Winter 2009) - A twist to the story of Daniel and the lions - I liked this one but again, it didn't really fit in a Kitty anthology.Read more ›
