4.0 out of 5 stars Back from the war 1 July 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One thing that's always bugged me about urban fantasy is the authors rarely think out how the military would use vampires and werewolves.

Well, Carrie Vaughn is not one of those authors: "Kitty Goes To War" tackles just that subject, throwing the radio werewolf up against some lycanthropic soldiers that are spinning out of control. It's also Vaughn's eighth werewolf book, but she keeps things fresh with brisk, clever writing and suspenseful subplots.

Kitty is summoned by the Army to help them deal with an unusual problem: a secret squad of werewolf Green Berets has gone wild because their alpha/commander has been killed. Now Kitty not only has to help recapture them (including the murderous new alpha), but help them learn to deal with the real world as werewolves. Easier said than done.

Also, Kitty is being sued by Speedy Mart's president because of a caller accusing him of magic weather terrorism -- and she soon realizes that the accusations may be true. But she has bigger problems to deal with when one of the werewolf soldiers goes AWOL to free his crazed alpha -- even as Denver is hammered by an ancient magic that might wreck the whole city.

"Kitty Goes To War" isn't a very accurate title, since Kitty isn't actually involved in a war at present -- she's just dealing with some of the nasty aftermath of war. But it's still a rollicking good read -- lots of blood, fur, madness and armed mayhem, as well as a magical conspiracy involving a chain of 7-11-esque convenience stores. What's not to love?

Vaughn does a good job juggling the various subplots and filling them with the right amount of action, romance and fantasy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continuing adventures of our werewolf DJ 15 Nov 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Carrie Vaughn continues Kitty Norvilles story in this her 8th book in the series.

In this book Kitty is contacted by her contact in the Centre for the Study of Paranatural Biology to come help with some soldiers who have returned from war. They were made into wolves by their team leader, who died on mission. Now they're home with no leader to control them they've gone wild and the Military needs help.
Kitty also has to cope with being sued for slander by Speedy Mart when she questions whether it has supernatural connotations on her show. Plus Cormac her old friend the Bounty Hunter is out of jail, and he's not quite acting himself...

This book is a gentle one of Kittys adventures. It doesn't have major plot overtones for the series and is similar in style to 'Kitty Goes On Holiday', it's a gentle one off that i really enjoyed.

I like that Carrie Vaughn deals with Kittys issues that came up in surviving the events of 'House of Horrors', so she empathises with the Post-traumatic stress the military wolves are feeling.
This book reaffirms Kittys selfless need to help others and reinforces how much you as a reader like her. Having Cormac have a mysterious personality issue going on is nice as it gives him something of a character revolution rather than going back to the old ways he had before.
If you love Kitty then dive in this books for you, same applies if your a werewolf fan, or like supernatural fiction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 15 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't help but have a soft spot for Kitty and her escapades. I really enjoyed this book and each book in this series seems to get better and better. This book was more about the werewolves than all the other supernatural madness Kitty gets thrown into usually.
Her role as Alpha of the Denver pack has really come along and faced with aggressive green beret military werewolves, she showed her status despite being fearful.
I found this book really interesting because it was showing another side to werewolves and specifically what happens when werewolves lose their Alpha. I liked the slant of a werewolf dealing with post traumatic stress of war and losing his team and pack to werewolf infighting. In showed the extreme difficulty of throwing supernaturals into war thinking their the ultimate soldier but everything has it's consequences.
This book did have another story threading through it regarding strange things happening at Speedy Marts which was good but for me the werewolf story took over.
I have to say that each book I fall more in love with Kitty and Ben as a couple. They have to be the sweetest couple in fiction. The way they look after each other and care makes me feel all swoony. Not overly sexual like most UF books these days but the love speaks at a more soul level and the ending was so lovely that I'm dying to read the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner! 13 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville book sequence is quickly becoming, in this house at least, what is probably one of the best urban fantasy series out there. Nearly as good as Jim Butcher's Dresden Files in fact.

Although the early installments were a bit episodic in style and tone, the author has unveiled hints and offered glimpses of a bigger and more ambitious overall story arc in the last few volumes. Which bodes well for Kitty Norville fans.

I've always loved the fact that Carrie Vaughn takes her characters and storylines along unexpected paths, keeping this series fresh and very entertaining. And Kitty Goes to War is no exception.

Here's the blurb:

Kitty Norville, Alpha werewolf and host of The Midnight Hour, a radio call-in show, is contacted by a friend at the NIH's Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology. Three Army soldiers recently returned from the war in Afghanistan are being held at Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs. They're killer werewolves--and post traumatic stress has left them unable to control their shape-shifting and unable to interact with people. Kitty agrees to see them, hoping to help by bringing them into her pack.

Meanwhile, Kitty gets sued for libel by CEO Harold Franklin after featuring Speedy Mart--his nationwide chain of 24-hour convenience stores with a reputation for attracting supernatural unpleasantness--on her show.

Very bad weather is on the horizon.

As I mentioned, I like the fact that Vaughn explores various themes that you rarely or never see in most urban fantasy series. Bless her, there hasn't been a bizarre love triangle involving a sexy woman whose heart is caught between a muscular werewolf with a twelve-inch cock and a hip vampire.
