    "Kitty Being An Alpha"

    Love the series and this book, at the core, was all about pack dynamics. Kitty hasn't been in the limelight as alpha of her pack since she took over at the end of Book 4. Nice to see her interacting with the pack as their alpha, and nice to see Ben backing her up. Cormac being back is icing on the cake.

    Like all of you, I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors.

    "fun distraction"

    Like everyone else, I think the premise of this series is fantastic: a radio talk show for paranormal complications/emotional issues associated with the creation of new paranormals, paranormal/mundane relationships, and the transition of paranormals to open and productive members of society. This series explores the adventures of the werewolf talk show host, Kitty Norville. While this concept could go horribly wrong, Carrie Vaughn consistently writes witty and tight plots with interesting relationships. I recommend this series as a fun distraction. Marguerite Gavin produces excellent performances and is a good choice for this series.

    "The best book yet!"
    What made the experience of listening to Kitty Goes to War the most enjoyable?

    I just realized that Kitty's pack has been very discontented to this point. Considering what they faced, their reaction was normal. However, in this book we get to see the pack working together as a team. We also get to see and experience a full-moon romp from the werewolves' perspective. This was great and I enjoyed all of this action very much. But that isn't the best part. Cormac is back. I won't say more than that, but I love him and his role in this book is very interesting.


    What other book might you compare Kitty Goes to War to and why?

    I always compare books about weres to other were series. It is interesting to see how Kitty's pack stacks up next to the packs in the Kate Daniel's series (by Ilona Andrews) and the Mercy Thompson's series (by Patricia Briggs). Kitty ranks just behind the other two series...which is great since they are my very favorite series on werewolves.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably when Ben shows some jealousy toward time Kitty spends with Cormac. I'm very glad there is no temptation on Kitty's part (or Cormac's part) to be unfaithful to Ben. Anyway, this scene is cleverly written - and again it is from the werewolf point-of-view.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't cry, although a few sad things do happen. I did giggle quite a few times - Kitty just has a way of getting in trouble!


    Any additional comments?

    I have already purchased the next book and look forward to reading it...right now!

    "Kitty the Werewolf ?"

    This a fun series. It deals with race relations between vampires, humans and werewolves. Kitty is radio talk show host who uses her platform to enlighten others. She has a real sense of justice and honor that always gets her in trouble with the bad guys. There are some memorable, lovable, characters here that will really strike a chord with you. The narration is great. It is fun light entertainment

    "Good story, but a little less kick to it"

    Seems to be a quick listen, but carries on with the Kitty theme quite well. We have Cormic back, with a new secret, and Kitty's mouth gets her into yet another bad predicament. Oh well, that's what Kitty's life is, and why I read her stories. It's another good tale, but seems to be lacking something. I just can't figure out what that is. I'll keep reading this series, cause I do like the characters, but maybe I'm just getting a little tired of them too.

    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    Kitty as always!! I love Kitty....but Cormac is a good 2nd...so elusive...

    "A good read, but not the best in the series."
    Any additional comments?

    I like the story for the most part, but I couldn't give it a full five stars. After listening to the previous book I couldn't help but feel that characters were only introduced in order for her to have someone to kill off. I would have preferred the use of more secondary characters that you felt you could actually care about their story, and not just see them as newly introduced potential fodder that are there for the main characters to react to when they bite it.

    "Good fun..."

    I have to say that this is not my normal genre for listening/reading. That being said, I found this series quite entertaining. A good distraction from the everyday mundane. The narration was well done. Although, not a masterpiece of literature, it was worth the listen.
