Publisher's Summary

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.

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

My favorite so far :-)

Any additional comments?

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.

Really a great story!

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

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!

Who was your favorite character and why?

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...

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

Yep...The Hollows...she is a great narrator!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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!

A Hell of a Good Story

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.

Solid series

If you could sum up Kitty Raises Hell in three words, what would they be?

Revenge, Psychics, Djin

What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a good job, but still mispronounces words.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

What happened in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas.

Any additional comments?

This is a solid entry. The character Roman is introduced; the behind the scenes Master Vampire of Vegas and he wants to expand into Denver. The crazy were/vampire cult from Vegas is out for revenge and has chosen a unique method to accomplish it involving fire. A group from a paranormal tv show hook up with Kitty. Not a great story, but a good one. This one felt a bit like a filler or maybe an excuse to introduce Roman who features prominently in the series.

Kitty vs. Demons

Fire, brimstone, and bad mojo anywhere she turns. Kitty's in for a wild ride as she faces an enemy that strikes from the shadows and hunts both her and her pack.

There are some fun bits in this book. I like Gary, Jules and particularly Tina of the Paradox P.I. crew. I like the contrast between Jules's science and Tina's powers. I really like that T.J.s brother, Peter, comes looking for him, and Kitty has to face her grief. I love the letter Tina get from Eric Wiesz, better known as Harry Houdini. And, of course, here is where we first start to hear about Cormac's personal adventure.

Aside from those awesome moments, this story seems like a vehicle to introduce Roman, the supposed "big bad" for the rest of the series. One of the reasons I am happy for this read-along is that the Roman story-line never really clicked with me. However, I have not yet read the last two books and the few previous to that were read in isolation, not in-a-row with the rest of the series. find that sometimes makes a big difference in how much I catch on to and enjoy the story. So I'm looking forward to a more cohesive experience of the rest of the series.

Much like the last book, while I like this story, it's not as near and dear to me as the first four books. But, House of Horrors is coming up next, and that IS one of my favorites. :)

Purchased. Review courtesy of onebooktwo | one book, two reviews.

Really good addition to the series :D

4-4.5 stars

This was a really good story and addition to the series. Kitty is back to her old self in this book and I have to admit that I'm liking the relationship between her and Ben more and more. Unfortunately, some of the issues Kitty ran into while she and Ben were in Vegas have followed them home. The band of shifters that threatened Kitty in Vegas seems rather put out that she didn't just allow them to sacrifice her and it becomes apparent that their vampire priestess master has cast a curse on Kitty and her pack.

Around the same time they figure out something is out to get them, Kitty finds out that the cast of a paranormal investigation TV show is in town to film at a local haunted house. She goes out to talk with them and is able to interest them in a crossover show where she'll broadcast on the radio what they're taping for one of their shows and then she'll be on their show when it airs. As luck would have it, when Kitty is staking out the haunted house with the group, the thing that's after Kitty and her pack causes some trouble. This actually ends up being a good thing though because it gets Kitty more help figuring out what the thing is and how to stop it. Unfortunately, there's also some vampire scheming going on and a new vampire named Roman comes on the scene. He offers to get rid of her problem for her...if she'll turn her loyalty to him. There's some definite drama and danger to deal with from the unknown threat as well as some pack dynamics that cause unsure footing as they work their way through the quagmire of problems. Thankfully, Kitty and friends come through things safely and with everything resolved for now.

This was a really enjoyable story. I thought Kitty might have been slipping a bit in the previous book but Kitty is back to her old self in this book. I'm happy with her and Ben's relationship...they seem to make a really good balance for each other and work together well. Overall, the story was very good and I liked how things played out. I'd recommend this story (and series). :)

as expected

This book was just as I expected, great. Out of the series this one is probably my favorite. something about not being to see the threat adds the little extra something. On top the next!

Moves along nicely.

I really like the pacing of this series. Narrator does a very nice job with differentiating the characters not just by lowering her voice, but in her inflections and timbre, truly giving each character their own voice.
