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.

    "Very Good"

    I bought this because I like Marguerite Gavin's Narration on Kim Harrison's Hollows Series Books so much. Anyway, I have enjoyed the first two books in the series and plan to listen to the rest.

    "Kitty Series"

    I have been enjoying this series, although I think I enjoy "The Hallows Series" by Kim Harrison a bit more. Its definitely in the same vein, so if you have run out of Rachel books and are looking for something similar, this series may be it. I do wish it had a little more humor tied into the stories, but they are overall enjoyable.

    "Good Paranormal story"

    Good storyline,if you like sci-fi & parnormal stories this is a good series... Kitty goes from a scared little submissive wolf to a strong willed and very independant alpha wolf.

    "Great characters!"

    A whole new set of characters in Washington DC...and Kitty meets and greets them all! Lots of political and ethical controversy...takes animal testing to a whole new meaning. Kitty has to appear in DC for a congressional hearing...and trouble surrounds (as usual)her. Fast paced and fun!

    "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 Has Grown On Me"

    My Initial Reaction...
    I've grown to really love Kitty with Kitty Goes to Washington and I'm excited to be getting to know some secondary characters a bit better too! Some (Cormick!), though, remain too elusive!!

    The Narration...
    I feel about the same as I did with book 1 about Marguerite Gavin's reading of Kitty Goes to Washington - a solid B+. To reiterate what I said in that review - she's IS Kitty. Perfect. She has the voice you'd expect a radio talkshow host to have. And then she's ok with the other characters - the male voices inparticular sound like a woman doing a male voice, rather than a true male voice. But they're distinct and it's easy to get comfortable with her reading. I'll be continuing with an audio read of this series for sure.

    The Characters...
    When I first started book 1 I did not like Kitty, because she was just so submissive. But by the end of that book she had really grown and I'm happy to report that the new Kitty has MOSTLY stuck with Kitty Goes to Washington. I did feel like we saw a bit of her squeemishness rearing it's ugly head, but to be fair she spent four years as a submissive wolf and that's going to take some time to work out of your system. And she's not exactly in the best situation for building confidence. Kitty's been called to appear before the US Senate as a principal witness for their investigation into supernatural beings. So yeah, the girl's got every right to be a bit squeemish!

    One of my complaints in the previous book was that I just didn't get a good feeling for secondary characters and I have to say, Kitty Goes to Washington did much better on that front. It helped that we saw some repeat characters - like her lawyer, Ben - who, BTW, can I just say I ADORE!! He's everything a lawyer should be but never seems to be, plus funny and so fiercely loyal. I remain, however, extremely frustrated about Cormick. I know the plot is gradually taking us towards them hooking up - it has to be! - but I really want to know this guy better. He shows up just enough to keep me interested and curious but not enough to really know him. I do like that he seems to be on Kitty's side and there was one moment in particular where I really liked him and Ben for being there for her.

    The Story...
    The story for Kitty Goes to Washington kept me glued from beginning to end. Kitty's been called to Washington to testify before the US Senate as an expert on things that go bump in the night. The politics and uncertainty about everyone's agenda kept me anxious, particularly about Kitty's testimony.

    But, thankfully, Kitty Goes to Washington wasn't all politics. It was also Kitty trying to navigate being a lone wolf. Not having a pack is rough, particularly on full moon runs. But on top of that, Kitty constantly has to enter unknown territories - in Kitty Goes to Washington this element is heightened by a warning she gets from the local vampire queen, Giselle, that it's dangerous for a lone shifter in Washington. So Kitty's staying with a Vampire - not that she really had a choice - dealing with government bigwigs, and trying to navigate the shifter community. I really enjoyed all the new characters we were introduced to though her time in Washington and found those interactions some of the most enjoyable.

    I do have one BIG complaint though. My favorite part of the first book was that HUGE sections of the book were told through Kitty's radio show. I loved that. It was so unique and fun. And it was so missing in Kitty Goes to Washington We still had her show, but it was really such a backdrop to the book, rather than front and center like before. To be fair, Kitty Goes to Washington covers a much shorter time-span, meaning less radio shows and a lot happens that doesn't make sense for the show. So I can't say this made me not like the book - but I did miss it, a lot.

    Concluding Sentiments...
    I'm loving Kitty and, like in book 1, Kitty Goes to Washington managed to grip my attention and pull my emotions all over the place. I'm looking forward to reading book 3!

    "Entertaining and fun!"

    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.

    "Just ok...."

    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.

    "The 2nd book is better.."

    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.

    "Another in a fantastic series"
    If you could sum up Kitty Goes to Washington in three words, what would they be?

    Kitty is sassy, aggressive, and sexy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kitty Goes to Washington?

    Kitty can take a bad situation and turn it into a marketing miracle.
