Publisher's Summary

Kitty Norville is back and in more trouble than ever. Her recent run-in with werewolves traumatized by the horrors of war has made her start wondering how long the U.S. government might have been covertly using werewolves in combat. Have any famous names in our own history actually been supernatural? She's got suspicions about William Tecumseh Sherman.

Then, an interview with the right vampire puts her on the trail of Wyatt Earp, vampire hunter. But her investigations lead her to a clue about enigmatic vampire Roman and the mysterious Long Game played by vampires through the millennia. That, plus a call for help from a powerful vampire ally in San Francisco, suddenly puts Kitty and her friends on the supernatural chessboard, pieces in dangerously active play. And Kitty Norville is never content to be a pawn....

Leader of the pack: listen to more titles in the Kitty Norville series.

    "Not one of her best"

    This was clearly not one of the best books in this series. Kitty seemed silly looking for historical figures who were also werewolves. She looked even sillier on a quest fro a magical object. Really!!!??? The story was a complete departure from what I like about the books: the relationships of the werewolves, and the relationship of Kitty, Ben, and Ccormac. The story wasn't very interesting, but I listened because I kept hoping it would get better. It didn't. The narrator was great. If it had no been for her I wouldn't have been able to get through the book. I hope the next book returns to the Kitty of previous books.

    "It was okay--"

    I love Kitty, but I just didn't not get into this one the way I have in the previous books. (The last couple have been off for me.) I was really interested in the historic bent that the book started on - then we derailed to San Francisco and Roman... and I only half-listened through the last couple of hours so I'd know what happened. Hoping the spark is back in the next book! :) PS: Love Marguerite Gavin as always!

    "Marguerite what happened???"
    How could the performance have been better?

    There are very few story tellers as good as Marguerite Gavin! She is a true gem in her field, however it is not fair to her nor her listeners if she sounds HORRIBLE with flu and jacked up on pain pills! Did editing not notice all the slurring? It is so distracting and uncomfortable to listen to I can barely deal with the story.

    Story
    "Trouble, all right"

    The ninth book in the Kitty Norville series was a disappointment to me. This story lacked the tight plotting I've come to expect from Vaughn---instead, we started out bouncing from one unrelated story to another. When the story finally rolled around to San Francisco and Chinatown, the action picked up, but the story itself just wandered around a maze of twisty passages, all alike. Once the action was over, we were left pretty much back where we started, with nothing resolved and nothing of worth accomplished---and we still had what seemed to be an interminable epilogue to wade through. Gavin's narration was okay, but nothing special.

    I had to force myself to finish this book, and it's not one that I would read again.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    Story
    "Very good addition to the series :)"

    4 stars

    This was a very good story and addition to the series. This story takes place mostly in San Francisco after a short detour to Dodge city. Kitty is trying to track down which famous people from the past had dealings with the supernatural or were supernatural themselves. When she hears a story about Wyatt Earp being a hunter who cleared out a group of rogue vampires in the Dodge City area in the past, Kitty has to go check it out and see if she can find any clues that the story might have been true. Kitty, Ben and Cormac go on the trip (Cormac having gotten permission from him parole officer to travel) so when Kitty gets a call from Anastasia (a vampire she met and allied with in [book:Kitty's House of Horrors|6620129]) needing help, all 3 of them end up heading to San Francisco to meet up with her.

    Anastacia called Kitty because she is trying to keep Roman from getting a talisman of great power. They all meet up in Chinatown and proceed down into mystical tunnels that require a guide to navigate. The situation isn't the best and Anastacia's vampire arrogance doesn't really help matters any. They run into some interesting supernatural creatures in the tunnels, as well as some chinese "gods". Things are pretty much constantly on the move and Kitty and company have some difficulties to get past before things are finished. Things do turn out well though and Kitty, Ben and Cormac are able to go home and continue their lives.

    This was a very good story. I still like Kitty as a heroine and Kitty and Ben are a good couple overall. The story itself was very good and progressed the series storyline pretty well. I'd recommend this story and series.

    "Starting to get boring"

    If she stopped repeating that she's a werewolf and how she killed the old alfa and why. it would be a good book again

    "What happened to Marguerite?"

    I love Marguerite Gavin, I don't understand what was up in this book, maybe she had a cold and they were in a time crunch.... the rest of the story was okay, I am getting tired of Kitty acting really stupidly, she should know better by now.

    "Kitty is always in trouble!"

    This a fun series. It deals with race relations between vampires, humans and werewolves. Kitty is radio talk show host who uses her platform to enlighten others. She has a real sense of justice and honor that always gets her in trouble with the bad guys. There are some memorable, lovable, characters here that will really strike a chord with you. The narration is great. It is fun light entertainment
