Book Description

3 Aug 2006
The Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology has gone public with scientific verification of vampires, werewolves, and the like. As the country's only outed werewolf celebrity, Kitty Norville is called to testify before a Senate special committee investigating this new information. She has taken her talk radio show "The Midnight Hour" on the road and travels to Washington, D.C. for the hearings.Once there, she meets a colorful series of local personalities, all of whom seem to have secret agendas: Alette, the vampire mistress of the city; Luis, an uber-hot Brazilian were-jaguar; Fritz, a grizzled old werewolf and possible Nazi in hiding; Roger Stockton, an enthusiastic reporter who wants to catch Kitty shape-shifting on film; Senator Joseph Duke, the paranoid Bible-thumper who chairs the committee; Elijah Smith, self-proclaimed faith healer to the supernatural. And Doctor Paul Flemming, the scientist in charge of the Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology, who seems strangely reluctant to discuss where his research has taken him.As usual, Kitty just wants to speak her mind and stand up for herself. But when so many people see her as a means to their own ends, she can't run fast enough to stay out of trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up to "Kitty And The Midnight Hour" 27 Mar 2007
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is the follow up to the wonderful "Kitty And The Midnight Hour" featuring a young werewolf who has a midnight talk radio show. In the first book Kitty found herself growing up and eventually had to leave her pack and go on the road when she felt they let her down.

"Kitty Goes To Washington" starts a month after those events when Kitty is called to testify to a senate hearing on werewolves and vampires. She arrives in Washington and spends some time as a tourist, and alongside the usual American monuments and museums she visits a Werewolf bar (where she meets the rather lovely were-jaguar Luis) and the vampire Mistress of the City, Alette, with her sidekick Leo.

However, whilst waiting to be called to testify, Kitty finds herself investigating the Rev Elijah Wood's church, breaking into a US facility with Cormac and interviewing a former Nazi werewolf. And time time for her testimony is becoming dangerously close to the full moon.

As in the former book, this is a really good fun read with some fast pacing, some interesting vignettes into werewolf life, a little love interest and a lot of amusing plot. Kitty is a great character with a winsome naivete but with a streak of iron through her too.

As an English reader I noticed a classic American mistake; Alette and Leo apparently have a "British Accent"; of course there is no such thing - there's English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish and others as well but "British" can't refer overall to one accent. Still I got the message - that they probably seem like your traditional film villain because of that accent. It also became very clear that Carrie Vaughn is a bit of a tourist herself with some very gushing descriptions of Kitty's time looking round Washington.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent follow on to the original 12 July 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I discovered Kitty And The Midnight Hour quite by chance and I was keen to get the sequel. It is not a disappointment. The book is as refreshing and fun as the first in the series and apparently there's third one due Spring 2007. I like the perspective of the main character and her attitude is much lighter than what you might find in the Anita Blake or Merry Gentry series of books by Hamilton. The light style and the reflective humour of the character makes a change from other lycanthrope stories. This is well worth the read even as a stand alone without the original book. I'd be very surprised if anyone would be disappointed by this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A werewolf in Washington 7 Jun 2009
Let's be honest here -- if all werewolves, vampires and other such were revealed to the world, the repercussions would be extreme in every area of society.

But not many urban fantasy authors bother to deal with that part of the story, because it's much harder than werewolf packs or vampire politics. But Carrie Vaughn give it a fair shot in "Kitty Goes to Washington," a smart, tense little urban fantasy that takes our werewolf heroine into government conspiracies and vampire takeovers.

Kitty is subpoenaed by the Senate, to appear at a special hearing examining the existence of weres, vampires, and other supernatural creatures. Apparently she's representing... all of them, as some sort of expert.

But her arrival causes a stir in more than the Senate, where the existence, nature and danger of supernaturals is being hotly debated. She starts exploring Washington's lyncanthrope population (including a very sexy werejaguar), and is taken under the wing of the city's vampire, Alette (although Kitty can't quite bring herself to trust her).

Unfortunately Kitty has a Bible-thumping fanatical senator determined to destroy her, the eerie faith healer Elijah Smith, and a mysterious scientist who might be willing to do ANYTHING for funding. And after Kitty deals with the mystery of Smith's "church," she finds herself at the mercy of men who want to reveal what she is to the world... and they're not terribly picky about how they do it.

One of the things that sets Carrie Vaughn's books apart is her heroine. In a genre full of leather-clad, gun-waving, sex-mad, heartily obnoxious superwomen, it's nice to occasionally see a heroine who is smart, courageous, stable, humble and more inclined to use her brains than a knife or gun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Follow On keeps up the success 7 July 2008
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Second novel in Carries Supernatural series and one that now that we've been introduced properly in book one, really doesn't pull any punches as the tale unwinds. Elements that were floating round in the first novel come back to haunt this second allowing for a bigger picture as well as allowing us to explore the world further.

Idealistic, entertaining and above all a pleasurable way to burn up sometime I'd recommend that you get a bottle of your favourite drink in as you're going to have a hard time putting this novel down. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars intelligent, engaging, and sexy 13 Nov 2010
By Rebecca
Miraculously, everything - and I mean EVERYTHING - that annoyed me in the first book was fixed. It seems to me that Carrie Vaughn decided to take herself a whole lot less seriously, and it worked wonders for the Kitty Norville series.
The concept of a supernatural talk-show radio host isn't exactly unique (there's a vampire radio station that plays at Fangtasia in Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series) but a plotline that revolves around the host itself is. At least to me, anyway.
In KGtW, Ms. Vaughn takes such a REALISTIC approach in how humans might react to suddenly finding out that all the legends are true. You've got your right-wing religious nuts who are convinced that all immortals are Spawns of Satan and about as eligible for your basic Constitutional rights as the family dog. You've got your military leaders that want to harness their powers for biowarfare.
This is one of the few paranormal romances that I have read that manages to be intelligent, engaging, and sexy, all in one pitch. I went into this book with low expectations. By the time I was at page 20, I was hooked. Hopelessly. If the first book in the series turned you off, give it another shot with Kitty Goes to Washington
