Already the alpha pair of Denver's werewolf pack, Kitty and Ben now plan to tie the knot human-style by eloping to Las Vegas. Kitty is looking forward to sipping froufrou drinks by the pool and doing her popular radio show on live television, but her hotel is stocked with werewolf-hating bounty hunters.
Elsewhere on the Strip, an old-school magician might be wielding the real thing; the vampire community is harboring a dark secret; and the irresistible star of a suspicious animal act is determined to seduce Kitty. Sin City has never been so wild, and this werewolf has never had to fight harder to save not only her wedding but her very life.

LOVE Kitty's adventures and this one definitely did not disappoint. Story took full advantage of all Vegas has to offer, shows, gambling, restaurants, themed hotels, conventions and of course wedding chapels! It was fun to see where she would go next in "sin city"..
Truth be told, I had given up on Kitty.Spending several hours with her sitting in a cabin in the woods while complaining about writers block and her new late night talk show rival didn't do much for me. But, despite what others have said, I like this book a lot. There is the humor of a Las Vegas wedding and plenty of new mysterious characters. Does that magician really make people disappear in his spooky box? Are those Bengal tigers in the animal show what they seem to be? Who is more scary-- the head vampire of Las Vegas or those people attending the gun show at Kitty's hotel? This book held my interest from start to finish.
An avid audible book listener!
In this series, the performance take over and the story simply flows. You can get lost in the whole thing. I great vacation series.... as you lie at the pool, close you eyes, and venture off into a reality created that seems totally plausible.
Kitty & Ben at the drive through Elvis wedding chapel was precious. There were moments when I laughed and moments when I nearly cried. Love the emotion that Ms. Gavin puts into the performance.
There were moments that definitely were emotional in this story. Afterall, there is supposed to be a wedding!
Ms Vaughn is an entertaining story teller and Ms Gavin a skilled narrator. Couple that with Kitty, the speaks her own mind werewolf who does it with conviction, determination, honesty and compassion; one who is never looking for trouble but never turns away when it finds her... well you've got entertainment with substance, character and cheeky style. This whole series remained true to these qualities without flagging. This installment is no exception. I enjoyed every page and I think you will too. I've read all nine plus the "Kitty's Greatest Hits" (listed as 9.5) and can recommend every one. Ms Vaughn, I hope there are more to come.
A story with a vulnerable but strong heroin, well thought out plot, and clear character delevopment.
Ms Gavin is a talented narrator which never left me wondering which character was speaking. Her interpretation of the characters added a 3-D color for me. She aids the story telling instead of becoming an obstacle or distraction. I wish she were narrating more books. I am more inclined to buy and listen to books which lists her as the narrator.
Some books I like to read, some are just better in audio. The Kitty series are just great in audio.
In a world of werewolves and vampires, Carrie Vaughn tells a tale of romance and mystery and makes you feel their world is real.
Marguerite Gavin's performance brings Kitty and the rest to life; the correct inflections at the right time. The reader makes all the difference in an audio book and Ms. Gavin does a great job.
If you like Kitty, you will love this one too. New characters, new settings keep the storyline fresh. Always a fun listen.
This is, in my opinion, the turning point book. All of the books in the series are great, however, this book is where things start getting interesting.
This is another great installment of the Kitty Norville series. Compared to others, this book seemed to be a set-up for the next book. That doesn't mean it's not every bit as good as the others in the series. Don't jump to the conclusion that the series has lost it's momentum, and don't skip this one. Loved listening to it, and am off to download Kitty #6.
I love this series and the narrator really brings Kitty's character to life. This was probably my least favorite in the series, but it is still a great addition.
