Kitty Norville, Alpha werewolf and host of The Midnight Hour, a radio call-in show, is contacted by a friend at the NIH's Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology. Three Army soldiers recently returned from the war in Afghanistan are being held at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. They're killer werewolves - and post-traumatic stress has left them unable to control their shape-shifting and unable to interact with people. Kitty agrees to see them, hoping to help by bringing them into her pack.
Meanwhile, Kitty gets sued for libel by CEO Harold Franklin after featuring Speedy Mart - his nationwide chain of 24-hour convenience stores with a reputation for attracting supernatural unpleasantness - on her show.
Very bad weather is on the horizon.

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.
I really expected to have lost interest in the story line by now! A big NOT! I love the fresh twist and the new adventures - I'm not even finished with this audio yet and it has me on the edge and excited about what's going to happen next. Gavin is the greatest - I actually found this series by looking for works by Gavin.
I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
I have already purchased the next book and look forward to reading it...right now!
Avid reader 5 to 10 books a month. I like urban fantasy and Sci-Fi the most. I do enjoy a bio every now and then.
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
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!!!!!
Touching, entertaining, great!
I loved the whole story...but the epilogue was very touching, when they take Tyler to seatle andn introduce him to his new pack....Kitty did a good thing...
Kitty as always!! I love Kitty....but Cormac is a good 2nd...so elusive...
I could have...it was really good...and unfolded perfectly....
I love this series, and may have never found it if it wouldn't have been in the Halloween sale....I am so glad I did!
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.
I did not read the print version so no comment
just the entire story
Kitty has been performed consistent and very well through out each of her books
title of book
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.
