The country's only celebrity werewolf, late-night radio host Kitty Norville prefers to be heard, not seen. But when she's invited to testify at a Senate hearing on behalf of supernaturals, her face gets plastered on national television. Kitty has been in hot water before, but jumping into the D.C. underworld brings a new set of problems - and a new set of friends and enemies, including the vampire mistress of the city; a super-hot Brazilian were-jaguar; and a paranoid, Bible-thumping senator who wants to expose Kitty as a monster. Kitty quickly learns that in this city of dirty politicians and backstabbing pundits, everyone's itching for a fight.

Sr Exec-High travel & no time to read. Love UF PNR with strong character develpoment & supernaturals living among us. own nearly 900 titles
I keep hoping this will be as good as the hallows but it is not. Kitty isn't Rachel. She's not complex and her inner voice is weak. The story is fluff. Has the building blocks of rich story but isn't flushed out enough. I won't continue.
Entertaining and easy to follow. The writer offers great detail and the narrator really takes on the character. You can see it play out in your head.
This was an all right book, but I struggled to stick with it. By the end I was just ready for it to be over. I found myself looking in my library while listening to the ending to see what I could start next. Really nothing surprising or engaging and not much romance either.
First book was ok, so I went for the 2nd. It was better than the 1st one. I'm glad I got it, but really wasn't inspired to get the 3rd. If I am in need of a book and don't have anything else, I would go for the 3rd one. Kitty was more likable in this book and I cared more about her and her story. Narration is still on the bland side, but still ok. Not a deal breaker.
Kitty is sassy, aggressive, and sexy.
Kitty can take a bad situation and turn it into a marketing miracle.
Gotta love it when the book is set in my hometown. And in this case the author seems to actually have visited DC. I am really come around to Kitty. Beyond the amusement of a werewolf named Kitty, her character seems fairly consistent and is entertaining to me.
This time Kitty has been summoned to DC to testify to Congress. After the events of the first book, more of the supernatural is out and Congress wants answers. DC of course has it's own supernatural underground... A senior vampire with tight control of the city, were's who work for embassy's and a much more tolerant collection of were's.
The supernatural backstory of this world continues to grow, in this case we are introduced to the concept of elves (and magic that works).
Kitty's big mouth continues to get her in trouble, and her overriding curiosity doesn't help either.
Fun read and I am looking forward to the next book.
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!!!!!
It was a great story and MG portrays it perfectly...
Kitty of course...she was kinda weak in book one...but she has grown sooooo much just in book 2....this is shaping up to be a great new series for me...I already downloaded 3-5!!! lol
I loved when Kitty saved Alette....she was brave, and so kind....Kitty is a great person!!!
I would have if i could have!! lol
I am so glad I gave this series a chance...now after book 2 I am sooooo hooked....and Marguerite Gavin as the narrator is just a plus!!!!!!!!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!
An avid audible book listener!
This story is very entertaining and the political hype is on point with today's politics as well.
The performance and dialogue is fantastic.
Kitty is a DJ and Marguerite has a voice that belongs to late night radio.
I think Marguerite Gavin does an excellent job. In fact, I found this series because I enjoyed her performance of Kim Harrison's "The Hollows" series so much I looked to see what else she did. I didn't like this second book as much as the first for two reasons. 1) There were only a few of the characters from the first book in this and often only briefly. The new characters didn't absorb my interest the way the first book's characters did. 2) The setting of a Washington, D.C. witch hunt, er, uh, werewolf hunt, came across as "preachy" to me. There were some general plot issues that made it seem that making a point was more important than telling a good story. The first book was able to do both. Still, I accidentally listened the very first part of Book 4 by mistake, and I am dying to find out things get to that point, so I'll be loading up Book 3 with my credits as soon as I click Submit. ;-)
