What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, except when it doesn't. Kitty and Ben return to their werewolf pack in Denver only to discover an invisible evil that smells of brimstone and plays with fire has followed them home. Stalking the whole pack, it leaves a charred trail of ashes and death across the city. Kitty seeks help from Rick, the master vampire of Denver, as well as from the paranormal investigators on a popular reality television show.
But when a mysterious vampire who claims to be a demon hunter - and the only one who can help them - suddenly arrives, Kitty and her allies won't be able to predict what he really wants...or what they must do to extinguish the terror that can torch them all.

Book Addict. My preferred books are historical fictions, fantasy (supernatural) fictions, or just good fiction.
I typically do not write book reviews, but I couldn't pass the opportunity this time. After all the adventures that Kitty has gone through, I was curious to see what could happen now. Yes, it does involve some backlash from some of her enemies from a previous book. It was with great joy that the story felt fresh. It has lots of excitment with old friends, and new ones. It is book not miss. Get it, you won't be disappointed.
60-year-old retired library worker, some college , married 30 years, husband retired railroad yardman. one son, 18 years old. God does have a sense of humor!
Well done plot, consistent within the supernatural realm she has created. (My biggest beef with fantasy writers is keeping track of each one's variations. Some vampires can't be seen in mirrors; some can, depending on the author. Some werewolves shift easily; some suffer agonies, etc.) The narrator is fantastic. Kept my interest throughout.
Life is too short to waste on bad authors.
On a scale from 1-10, I'd give it a 5. I was rather disappointed in the plot and just how naive and headstrong Kitty can be. Has she not learned anything from her past experiences?
Believe or not, Rick. While he may seem laid back or lackadaisical, he's been around for quite awhile so he's had more than enough time to study human nature. I like a character that doesn't give away their true nature up front.
I don't know. I'm sure it can't be easy to bring a book to life but Ms. Gavin came off as very flippant and bored. . or at least that's how she made Kitty sound.
I may stop reading this series because of this book.
Yes, this author is a good story teller and its not a romance where most of the story is detailing about love making, it actually has a story line
she does a good job
makes me laugh
Can't get enough of this series. It's full of action and paranormal suspense. Kitty's married now, but her life is anything but bliss. Start with the first book, and go from there .If you like to read about werewolves, vampires, mystery, and action; then this series is for you. But you should read in order, as it's a developing story.
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!!!!!
Yep....I would recommend the whole series....Kitty is a great MC and I know I am going to love all her books...I am starting #7 now!
Well Kitty of course....she did get a little hysterical in this one though...but it was good to see her in a different light...
Yep...The Hollows...she is a great narrator!
Yes....I laughed, I cried, my heart went out to Kitty and Ben....this was a rough one for them...but it turned out ok...and ended on a good note....
Kitty is a very relatable character...she is down to earth and brave....I love that she and Ben are married and I love that she is the Alpha of her pack....she is really cool...I highly recommend this series...and I really liked this installment to the series!
Love Marguerite Gavin's readings, she brings the characters to life. However, living in Boulder, some of her local mispronunciations of local landmarks make me crazy. For example, it's not El-Itches, it's E-Litches. When creating local flavor, it would be a good idea to check these details...
Any of the Dead Wiitch Walking series.
Her presentation of the different characters.
The wolf rules!!
Her control or not so control of the game.
Yes, So far all the books have good follow and keeps the audio at top performance
It was a great pleasure
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.
Ok, 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.
All of Carrie Vaughn's books are really good. I already have all of the print books and am now collecting them on audio. I drive a lot for work and these stories help the day fly by.
