Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kitty and the Deads Man's Hand was not my favourite Kitty novel but I think Kitty Raises Hell redeems the series.

Kitty and Ben have return from Las Vegas and unknown to them a supernatural being has been sent to extract vengeance from the Band of Tiamat. It starts of innocently enough (as innocently as public vandalism can be) with the defacing of the Full Moon's door and very quickly explodes from their. It has only been a short time since Ben and Kitty have been made alpha pair of the Denver pack and Kitty is still trying to understand the challenges and leadership responsibility that she now has. One thing that she is quickly realising is that she must protect the pack at all costs. This, I think, is the wolf side of Kitty growing and stepping up to the challenge. The violence evolves and there is still no understanding of what is hunting not only Kitty but the whole pack, leaving fire and ashes in its wake. Kitty is frantic to find the answers before it is too late.

Gradually, Kitty's circle of friends she can trust widens, and this I think adds more depths to the series. It is not just Kitty frantically running around looking for answers (though there is still plenty of that) she now has people that she can turn to in times of trouble, and as any reader of this series knows wherever Kitty is trouble is sure to follow. Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand, I would have given 3 ½ stars, Kitty Raises Hell 5 stars.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
From the back of the book: `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 TV 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.'

Kitty Raises Hell (KRH) takes place a week after Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand (KDMH) and deals with the fallout of the events in that book. In this one we see some past characters like Hardin, Cormac and we find out about TJ's past.

KDMH wasn't one of my favourites and so KRH didn't really excite me either. I'm waiting for Kitty and Ben to interact more with the pack. In KRH Kitty admits that the pack isn't close and that she only sees them on full moon nights. She fully realises her responsibility to keep the pack safe but she doesn't seem to know their names and or anything about them other than that they are werewolves. She fails to use them to help her fight the threat against the pack so they believe that she isn't doing anything to stop it leading them to challenge her authority. I know that not much time has passed between this book and Kitty and the Silver Bullet (which I absolutely loved) when she takes over the pack so I'm just waiting until there is more interaction between Kitty and her pack.

It's always with pleasure that I sit down to read a new Kitty Norville installment. Though they have become a bit episodic in style and tone of late, Carrie Vaughn's books have nevertheless remained engaging and entertaining enough to satisfy me and the rest of her fans. I've always been afraid that these relatively short books would begin to lose steam down the line, but there is no sign of it just yet.

Here's the blurb:

Sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas.

Kitty and Ben flee The City That Never Sleeps, thinking they were finished with the dangers there, but the sadistic cult of lycanthropes and their vampire priestess have laid a curse on Kitty in revenge for her disrupting their rituals. Starting at the next full moon, danger and destruction the form of fire strikes Kitty and the pack of werewolves she's sworn to protect.

She enlists the help of a group of TV paranormal investigators - one of whom has real psychic abilities - to help her get to the bottom of the curse that's been laid on her. Rick, the Master vampire of Denver, believes a deeper plot lies behind the curse, and he and Kitty argue about whether or not to accept the help of a professional demon hunter - and vampire - named Roman, who arrives a little too conveniently in the nick of time.

Unable to rely on Rick, and unwilling to accept Roman's offer of help for a price, Kitty and her band of allies, including Vegas magician Odysseus Grant and Kitty's own radio audience, mount a trap for the supernatural being behind the curse, a destructive force summoned by the vengeful cult, a supernatural being that none of them ever thought to face.

Essentially, Kitty Raises Hell is a direct sequel to Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand.

By Anne TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Sept. 2012
Format: Paperback
When Kitty travelled to Las Vegas to get married she managed to make some new enemies which have returned home to Denver with her. She is being pursued by a cult of werewolves who want to sacrifice her to their goddess and don't much care what happens to anyone who gets in their way.

The author is back on form with this instalment of Kitty's life as the DJ werewolf and leader of the Denver pack. She has to make agreements with other supernatural creatures and preserve the respect of her own pack whilst defeating the enemy and delivering a radio show. Ghosts make an appearance (some literally) in this book too.

The Kitty books are more clever and deeper than they first appear, and deal with the need for tolerance and understanding among all types of people. They are not preachy, however, and are written in a light-hearted and amusing style. If you enjoy urban fantasy I think that you will like these books but start with the first one Kitty and the Midnight Hour (Kitty Norville 1)
