Publisher's Summary

Kitty's radio show is as popular as ever, and she has a boyfriend who actually seems to understand her. Can she finally settle down to a normal life? Not if this is just the calm before the storm.

When her mother falls ill, Kitty rushes back to Denver - and right back to the abusive pack of werewolves she escaped a year ago. To make matters worse, a war is brewing between the city's two oldest vampires, threatening the whole supernatural community.

Though she wants to stay neutral, Kitty is again drawn into a world of politics and violence. To protect her family, her lover, and herself, she'll have to choose sides. And maybe become what she hates - a killer.

Brought me to tears

I don't cry easily, but Carrie Vaughn's writing, and Margarite Gavin's reading, brought me to sobs during the very touching talk between Kitty and her mother regarding both of their health problems. It was so realistic, as I have been a third person in almost the same situation, and it was so very moving. I, too, have been bitten by Kitty (excuse the pun), and I look forward to every one of her books. As for Margarite Gavin,she reads for several of the series that I am currently hooked on, and she is a primary reason for my addictions! I will listen to her read the phone book. She has a wide range of voices, and knows when to deliver the intonations in her reading. All round- this series is a delight to listen to, as well as a pretty good who-done-it.

Good plot but not feeling the romance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd certainly recommend this series to those who enjoy UF.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I liked that Kitty finally returned to Denver. It was great to see her interations with her family, especially her mother and sister. I was also really glad to get to know Rick better and enjoyed all the scenes with him.

My biggest problem with this book and the last one is Kitty's relationship with Ben. She never showed any romantic interest in him until his first full moon as a werewolf. After that their sexual relationship just felt forced. Over and over in this book you can see the doubt they have about their feelings for each other. Toward the end it was like the author just swept it all under the rug. Suddenly, it's settled that they really do care about each other. I don't feel the passion between them and I'm not buying it. The series was set up so we'd think Kitty would eventually hook up with Cormac. I really don't like how the author has shoved him out of the way in favor of a false relationship. Ben's a good guy and was great as a human lawyer. I'm not feeling him as a werewolf at all.

Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, she's great. She really enhances the experience of listening to the book. I'd have to agree with others that she's one of the best narrators out there.

Any additional comments?

I wish the author would stop repeating the same details over and over. She's bad about putting them in suspensful moments where it unnecessarily slows the story down. If I was reading the book, I'd skim past them but with audio that's harder to do.

Nice addition to the series, added a deeper plot

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.

Best Book Yet!!

Kitty books are so well done, they are on my auto-buy list. Love the writing, the characters, AND the narration. As a fan of the series, I must point out--these books definitely have a story arc going, so read them in order. In this book, there were hard decisions made, and some very emotional scenes. Lots of action, Kitty humor, and a satisfying resolution made a nice balance. This may be the best Kitty book yet!
