Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Kitty plus DC equals trouble"

    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.

    Story
    "Fantasy fiction hits Washington"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story is very entertaining and the political hype is on point with today's politics as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The performance and dialogue is fantastic.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kitty is a DJ and Marguerite has a voice that belongs to late night radio.

    "Too much D.C., new characters not as compelling"

    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. ;-)

    Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.

    "A filler book inbetween two good ones"

    This book is about Kitty finding herself, it could have been split up between one before and the one after needless to say it was still enjoyable. Something about the name "Kitty" turned me off this book for about a year, finally I gave into to all the recommendations. I am glad I did. She is funny and so unlucky, it reminds me of Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich series, but much much more unlucky. I got hooked quickly and I only have one book left in the series. Each book builds on the last, and average about 7 hours a piece just enough time for Kitty to get herself in trouble and right back out of it again. This is not a deep book but enjoyable just the same. It's light at times, funny, and then serious but not so overwhelming that you can't set it down and come back to it. Its a good light read and the narrator was just perfect for the book, she tells the story in a light enjoyable way, and she has become the voice of Kitty in my mind.

    "Talk, no action....."

    Cant put my finger on it but its a long hard listen. Story is slow and it makes you want to fast forward to get to a little action. All in all the book is ok for what it is. I hope she picks up the stories a little in the future...the price is right...

    "Not as good as Book 1, but still good"

    I really enjoyed the first book in this series, so naturally I wanted to try the next book. Turns out that it wasn't as good as the first one, but still enjoyable. I will probably continue on with this series, but it's not in my top 5, so maybe not.

    "Good premise, terrible reader"

    Like the premise and the series so far... however, the reader is very distracting! If I continue this series, think I'll just get the book.

    "Kitty fan!"

    I am downloading Book 3 as we speak! This series is very entertaining. carrie Vaughn has done a great job of refreshing the "usual" sci fi stuff, and giving us unique perspective from a werewolf who wants to retain her humanity above all else.

    Add Marguerite Gavin as narrator, and you have a smooth and enjoyable listening experience!

    Story
    "Love Marguerite Gavin!"

    Kitty gets stuck in the middle of one senator’s public plan to expose supernaturals to the world. Luckily, the plan doesn’t get the response the senator is hoping for, but Kitty still has to suffer the brunt of it all.

    In Kitty and the Midnight Hour, we saw Kitty stand up for herself against the wishes of her pack to keep her radio show. But the consequences of that decision are harsh; she has to leave Denver and her family, and her best friend, T.J. is gone. In Washington, Kitty experience more things — good and bad — the help her on her way to more independence and control of her life.

    Two of my favorite characters show up in Washington; Alette and Fritz. Fritz is a WWII veteran and werewolf who opens up to Kitty right before he dies of old age. Fritz is a puzzle to Kitty; he’s old, he’s survived so much, and he’s so bitter. Kitty’s penchant for stories draws her to Fritz, of course. Personally, I’d love to see more written about Fritz and his experiences in the war. I’ll bet his stories come with some fantastic lessons.

    I also love Alette, a super classy vampire mistress who shows Kitty that vampires don’t have to be like the ones she’s met in Denver. Like werewolves, vampires are just people, too.

    In Washington, the real monsters are the humans, particularly Senator Drake and Dr. Flemming, who kidnap and expose Kitty to further their own agendas. Though Kitty is getting pushed around by these two just like she was pushed around by her pack, she is able to take some control and come out of the closet on her terms, somewhat. It’s an important lesson; we can’t control everything, but we can respond to crappy situations in the best way possible, even gaining a little control where we previously had none.

    And, as always, Marguerite Gavin does an amazing job voicing Kitty.

    Washington gives Kitty more experiences and more contacts to help her on her journey of growing up and taking control. Again, a favorite book in a favorite series; it was such a pleasure to read it again for the One Book Two Read Along.
