Book Description

10 Jan 2008 Kitty Norville 1
Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station - and she also happens to be a werewolf. One night, sick of the usual lame song requests, she accidentally starts 'The Midnight Hour', a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. Almost immediately she's deluged by calls from desperate vampires, werewolves and witches from all across the country, wanting to share their woes and ask her advice. Kitty's new show is a raging success, but it's Kitty herself who could use some help, not least because her monthly change is a deep and dark secret to all but a very special few. And when she finds one very sexy werewolf-hunter on her tail, not to mention a few homicidal undead, she realises she may just may have bitten off more than she can chew . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but.... 27 Jun 2006
By Amy Connolly VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to say even although the book did have an alright plot line and the action scenes were good, there was just something that didn't quite make it great.

It's not quite up there with the likes of L. K. Hamilton (early ones), Kelley Armstrong or Kim Harrison, but it wasn't bad.

Not worth a second read IMO, though.

The female lead was strong and beleavable, the plot exciting, the other characters interesting, but it didn't really capture me as others have.

The plot has been mentioned before, so i wont go into it. I'd say it's a good werewolf flick to fill the time waiting for another book to come.

By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book as a natural follow on from the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series (Amazon told me that people who buy the Anita Blake books also buy this book). Although there are some similarities in themes - Vampires and Werewolves - these books are actually quite different in terms of style.

Kitty is a radio DJ with the midnight till 3am slot and she finds herself running a talk show about vampires, werewolves and other not-quite-human beings. Many of her callers are part of these groupings, and Kitty knows all about it as she herself is a Werewolf. We hear a lot about her pack with its leader (Alpha male) Carl and the Alpha female Meg, as well as T J, Kitty's closest friend in the pack.

The radio show is a great success but then Kitty is "outed" as a Werewolf and her life changes. She is the target of a werewolf exterminator, the police want to talk to her about a rogue werewolf that is murdering humans and her family are shocked that she hadn't told them. Plus Kitty finds her pack position as "baby" no longer fits and she starts to exert her authority and try to move up the ranks. Will this ever be possible?

What's great about this book is the way that Carrie Vaughn writes the Wolf pack parts. What would it be like to be part of a pack with all that entails (Alpha males getting to mate with whomever they choose). Kitty is trying to stay alive but her human side is also part of her wolf nature and she can't settle.

I really enjoyed this book - it's more lighthearted than the Anita Blake series although some of the subjects are quite deep and there is blood and gore. It's a fun read, though, which I would recommend. I've ordered the follow-up Kitty Goes To Washington after enjoying this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good read!! 8 Jan 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I picked up this book, I thought "werewolf, DJ, Denver - this is going to be pretty predictable." I'm glad to say was wrong!! Kitty is a werewolf, no surprise there, but she's at the bottom of the pecking order in her pack where she relies on her relationship with fellow pack member and Beta wolf, TJ. This dynamic was really interesting as any other book I've read involving werewolves glosses over the social/pack system and Ms. Vaughn really brings this forth and you suddenly realise how important it is to both Kitty the human and Kitty the wolf.
The two different personas of Kitty (human v wolf) is also excellently rendered, Ms Vaughn really makes you understand that human and animal are very different and at odds with each other. Kitty is strong and determined when it comes to her extremely successful late night radio show "The Midnight Hour" (which is a supernatural talk-show) but in regards to hunting or the pack, Kitty is weak and self-conscious.
There are many interesting characters throughout the book, and as I think Ms Vaughn intended, Kitty, Rick and Cormac stand out and I really hope to see more of both (I wont give details but lets just say there is an outstanding scene with Cormac’s introduction and Rick [a vampire] has something powerful about him that really deserves exploring). Ms Vaughn also sets the possibility of further Kitty adventures (indeed there is an extract of "Kitty Goes To Washington" in the back) with unresolved issues with the Church of Pure Faith and pack alphas Carl and Meg.
The hostility towards Kitty as she develops inner strength and resolve learns to come to terms with her dual nature and increasing determination towards keeping her radio show, pack relations and developing her human self are ongoing themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr Kitty novel. 9 Jan 2006
By Kierun
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dr Kitty appeared first in a short story which you can find on Carrie's web site. If you like it, you'll love the novel.
While the book is about werewolves, vampires and radio talk shows, those are just background onto which stories unfolds and characters interact. All the characters are detailed, multi-dimensional and compelling -- especially the bad guys. The main plot line is well constructed, logical and at times fiendish. The other plot lines fore shadow events to come, leaving the reader longing for the follow up books. It's well worth reading the book twice. The first time for the plot line and action. The second time for what is said in the talk show.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 6 Aug 2006
By Clare
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I liked the way Carrie Vaughen writes about Kitty and her wolf, how it's always there lurking inside her. It's refreshing to see she's not by any means head of the food chain in fact in this book we see her slowly finding her feet.

I thought the possible romance angle was interesting but sudden however it does fit with her trained submissiveness to look for a stronger person to care for her. Thankfully I believe as the series progresses we'll see her gaining that strength herself.

Other characters are interesting and I look forward to seeing more of the vamps in the next book.
