Editorial Reviews

Review

"The seventh entry in Vaughn's top-notch paranormal series...is as strong as ever. Readers of Kim Harrison's 'Hollows' series and Jim Butcher's 'Dresden Files' will appreciate Kitty's sarcastic wit, ingenuity, and independence." ---Library Journal --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has tied Carrie Vaughn with Ilona Andrews as my favorite, never dissapoint authors. Kitty agrees to go on a reality show where a big brother type household of supernatural creatures try to convince Conrad, the world's greatest skeptic that there is magic and other creatures out there. It becomes apparent that this really isn't why they were brought together when one by one they begin to die. Kitty and the others are stranded in the middle of nowhere and without any means of contact with the outside world. Who is doing this to them and why? How can they use their otherly abilities to get out of there? This book was excellent, every page a turner, and not a word to waste. Ben is absent for much of the book as he has gone to try to will Cormac's good behaviour release from prison. We do get to meet up with some new characters in the 'house of horrors' as well as see some of the others we have met along the way. My favorite if the magician from Kitty and the Dead Man's hand, Odysseus Grant. What Carrie Vaughan has done is removed Kitty from the world we know already and has spiced things up by giving us a change of scenery and some different supporting characters. Sure we can't wait to get to more of Ben and Cormac, but thats the great thing! We know that there is more to them to come. This book is such a strong story with such a different feel that it just reminds us that Vaughan stands out as unique when so many other series are failing due to 'same old, same old' syndrome. Kitty's series is definitely fresh and in fact this book may be the most exciting yet. Kitty remains Kitty and reminded me several times in this story why I like her so much. I smiled many times when Kitty did some crazy, and Kitty-like in the story.Read more ›

This review will contain minor spoilers, so please keep that in mind before reading further.

This seemed to be a transitional book for the series, shifting from relationship/character issues (more typical of paranormal/urban fantasy/romance), to more of a urban focus (an upcoming war between good and evil - the "long game", if you remember this from a previous book). I've noticed this trend in the last couple of books, but the shift was complete here.

There were no relationship issues or tension in this book (both Ben and Cormac were absent for most of the book, and I missed them both). Instead, we have Kitty and several other characters we've previously met stranded in an isolated cabin where everything isn't as it seems, and where the situation goes downhill fast. I don't want to post too many spoilers, but the "monsters" are in a fight for their lives against unknown foes, and not everyone survives.

The plot was fast-paced and interesting, and not everything turns out well... which makes it more realistic than other paranormals I've read recently. That said, I enjoy character or relationship issues mixed in with my adventure - if that tension is missing, then the book falls a little flat for me. And, unfortunately, it was missing in this book. It was worth the time I spent on it, and the idea for the plot was great, but it could've been more than it was.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 4, 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kitty Norville is an "out" werewolf with a hit radio show... so it's not surprising that the next step is reality TV.

Unfortunately (for her), "Kitty's House of Horrors" quickly turns from a lighthearted satire on reality TV into a supernatural version of "And Then There Were None." Carrie Vaughn's seventh urban fantasy novel maintains her tongue-in-cheek approach to the genre, but it also takes her series into even darker waters -- there's a big nasty storm brewing, and Kitty is right in the middle of it.

Kitty is approached by a couple of Hollywood reps about "Supernatural Insider," a reality show about the newly-exposed supernatural. After she agrees, she ends up in a mountain lodge with a pair of psychics, a werewolf, a wereseal, two vampires, an annoying skeptic, and the magician Odysseus Grant. Unfortunately, Kitty soon begins to worry about the tensions stirred by the show... particularly since both Grant and the ancient vampire Anastasia suspect that this is somehow entwined with the vampiric Long Game.

Then the vampires' sidekick is found dead, the production crew is strangled, and someone is shooting silver crossbow bolts at anyone who tries to leave. Someone is apparently determined to kill off everybody participating in the reality show, and they've laid elaborate traps all around the lodge. And with no way to get off the mountain, Kitty and her motley band of uneasy allies must find a way to take out their enemies, or be picked off one by one.

"Kitty's House of Horrors" sounds like a pretty standard urban fantasy, except with an Agatha Christie twist.

I was hesitant to read this book because I felt like I was getting Kitty-ied out but I'm glad I did. I don't know if it's because there wasn't much Ben or if the story line just really grabbed me this time but I didn't want to stop reading. Not only was Kitty participating in this reality show but we also saw some of my favorite characters back like Odysseus Grant, Jeffrey-the TV psychic, Ariel-Kitty's fellow radio personality and Tina the paranormal investigator who has her own psychic talents. From reading the book blurb I was dying to know which characters would make it through and which ones would end up being killed. I liked them all so I was really biting my nails. It truly was like watching a horror movie and wondering who would be the next to go.

We also saw a few more moves in the Long Game that the vampires have had going on as Kitty meets another ancient vampire. And the best part and I hope this doesn't ruin anything for anyone but Cormac is finally going to be paroled! I cannot wait to see where this goes. I really would like to see Kitty and Cormac together but unless Ben dies I really don't see how that could happen.

If you want to find out who makes it out of the house of horrors you definitely need to pick this one up!
