Publisher's Summary

Kitty Norville, star of a New York Times best-selling series, is everybody's favorite werewolf DJ and out-of-the-closet supernatural creature. Over the course of eight books, she's fought evil vampires, were-creatures, and some serious black magic. She's done it all with a sharp wit and the help of a memorable cast of werewolf hunters, psychics, and if-not-good-then-neutral vampires by her side.

Kitty's Greatest Hits not only gives listeners some of Kitty's further adventures, it offers longtime fans a window into the origins of some of their favorite characters. In "Conquistador de la Noche", we learn the origin story of Denver's Master vampire, Rick; with "Wild Ride", we find out how Kitty's friend T.J. became a werewolf; and in "Life Is the Teacher", we revisit Emma, the human-turned-unwilling-vampire who serves the aloof vampire master of Washington, D.C.

This entertaining collection includes two brand-new works: "You're on the Air", about one of Kitty's callers after he hangs up the phone; and the eagerly awaited "Long Time Waiting", the novella that finally reveals just what happened to Cormac in prison, something every Kitty fan wants to know.

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

    Story
    "It was ok"

    I bought this book because I knew that it would tell of Cormac's time in jail and tell the story of TJ. I enjoyed the stories about Cormac history the most. TJ's story was also excellent. There were three stories that featured Kitty. Only the one in which she was helping a fellow werewolf was actually good. The other stories seemed out of place. As always Marguerite Gavin was great.

    "Recycled"

    While the stories are good, many have appeared elsewhere in theme anthologies. If you like Carrie's work, and don't normally buy short story collections, this is a good value. I just think there should be better disclosure.

    "Short stories, not another novel"

    Of course if I'd read the description I would have known this before I purchased it, so that's my fault. On the other hand the majority of the stories just didn't grab me. You do get to learn some of the back stories of some of the characters, and the final story is definitely the best of the bunch, as someone else had noted. But all in all, unless you're a fan of short stories, and are desperate for a Kitty Norville fix, I'd take a pass on this one.

    "A Variety of Kitty!"

    Kitty's Greatest Hits was another nice addition to the Kitty Norville series. I would not buy this as an ebook, but it makes a very good listen.
    Yes. This is made up of a variety of 'shorts' that have been included in anthologies and I believe at least one was available on the author's website. It's important to know that up front.
    But I'm not about to criticize on that point. A greatest hits CD is nothing more than a group of hit songs that are re-released with a couple of new ones thrown in to help sell the next CD....and we all buy them. This audiobook is running on the same idea. I haven't read all the anthologies that include a Kitty Norville short, so I'm glad that this collection is available. I like the variety that you get while staying in the 'Kitty' universe, and it was well worth the money just to listen to "A Long Time Waiting".

    "Re Runs"

    I did not realise it is nothing but a series of unrelated short stories , some of which you would have already read if you read the iTunes versions.
    Not worth the time or money .
    Save your money for kitty's next real book.

    "A lot of good mini stories"

    I really enjoyed this book. My particular favorite was the Book of Daniel. It was great having some of the mysteries solved.

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

    "Great short stories from Kitty and the crew!!"

    This is a great set of stories from the Kitty Norville world. I've read the books that make up Kitty's series but only a few of the short stories outside of the books. Since I'm always interested in more Kitty stories (can't wait for book #11!!), I was very happy to get these "Greatest Hits" for more of a Kitty fix. From what I've heard, only 2 of the 14 stories in this are new (the rest come from scattered anthologies). I would have bought it just for the 2 new stories but since I haven't read a lot of the others I was really happy with this.

    Although I liked all of the stories my Faves are:
    "Conquistador de la Noche" - The story of how Ric became a vampire
    "Long Time Waiting" - Details on what happened to Cormac when he went to prison
    "Il Est Ne" - Facing a lonely Christmas in a diner, Kitty helps another werewolf recapture his humanity

    Definately worth the purchase for any Kitty fan out there. :)

    "Dissapointed"

    I love the series but this book was not what I was looking for. There's not much about Kitty and the only one part that is worth the credit was Kormack's story. Would like my credit back!!!
