Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kitty Norville is an "out" werewolf with a hit radio show... so it's not surprising that the next step is reality TV.

Unfortunately (for her), "Kitty's House of Horrors" quickly turns from a lighthearted satire on reality TV into a supernatural version of "And Then There Were None." Carrie Vaughn's seventh urban fantasy novel maintains her tongue-in-cheek approach to the genre, but it also takes her series into even darker waters -- there's a big nasty storm brewing, and Kitty is right in the middle of it.

Kitty is approached by a couple of Hollywood reps about "Supernatural Insider," a reality show about the newly-exposed supernatural. After she agrees, she ends up in a mountain lodge with a pair of psychics, a werewolf, a wereseal, two vampires, an annoying skeptic, and the magician Odysseus Grant. Unfortunately, Kitty soon begins to worry about the tensions stirred by the show... particularly since both Grant and the ancient vampire Anastasia suspect that this is somehow entwined with the vampiric Long Game.

Then the vampires' sidekick is found dead, the production crew is strangled, and someone is shooting silver crossbow bolts at anyone who tries to leave. Someone is apparently determined to kill off everybody participating in the reality show, and they've laid elaborate traps all around the lodge. And with no way to get off the mountain, Kitty and her motley band of uneasy allies must find a way to take out their enemies, or be picked off one by one.

"Kitty's House of Horrors" sounds like a pretty standard urban fantasy, except with an Agatha Christie twist.

Firstly I must admit to having a bit of a soft spot for Kitty. Out of all of the vampire/werewolf paranormal romance series going around right now she is one of the few characters who tries hard to reconcile her human and werewolf natures combined with some very supernatural problems. In this book Kitty is now a happily married werewolf, husband Ben is working on getting their friend Cormac out of jail. So as things are going well this is the logical time for Kitty to put herself in a Big Brother style cabin in the woods for a reailty tv show full of other supernatural stars. So if the mix of vampires, psychics, magicians and sceptics isn't enough when all the tv crew are found dead and there seems to be no escape from the woods Kitty realises they've stumbled into their own horror movie, one which intends to kill them all.

All the horror movie cliches are here and the first half of the book is very much a case of eploiting those and using it to good comic effect, however when things start to get nasty you do wonder where this will take the characters. One of the main aspects of this book is that you can guess quite easily whats going to happen - you just aren't sure how the characters will get out of it. Vaughn is excellent at writing conversations which give you everything you need to know about her characters - handy when Kitty is a radio host! This also means that while there is plenty of action in this novel its also the conversations between characters that are most revealing and lead the book forward.

If you've enjoyed other books in this series of are looking for a new series to start then I would recommend this one. Kitty has changed a lot from her first book where she was the weakest in a bullying pack. Now she is a public werewolf out of hiding, an Alpha with her own pack to defend and her own power to get used to. It makes the next book something to look forward to.

Wow, I didn't see this book coming - "Kitty's House of Horrors" is a pretty depressing instalment due to the sheer number of dead bodies, but it's also one of the best. It's jam-packed with action from practically the first chapter and doesn't let up until the last page.

Kitty is invited to participate in a reality TV show full of supernaturals. As Kitty is quite fond of the lime light and revels in publicity for her show, she agrees. When she enters the house, which is situated in a gorgeous cabin miles from anywhere, she meets the other contestants. I was wondering how the book would read without her love interest, but I didn't miss her Alpha mate one bit!

It was great to see a few characters return from previous books, such as Tina a psychic and paranormal investigator, who we first meet in 'Kitty Raises Hell'; Jeremy a TV psychic who Kitty works alongside in 'Kitty Goes To Washington'; Odysseus Grant a true magician who Kitty meets for the first time in 'Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand' during her trip to Las Vegas.

There were many others in the house too: Lee, a were-seal; Anastasia, Gemma and Damian, two vamps and their human servant; Jerome, a werewolf and pro wrestler; Ariel, Priestess of the Night, talk-radio show host; and last but not least, Conrad, a human and a disbeliever in all that is supernatural.

After the introductions everyone settles in. What I noticed more than any other novel is that Kitty likes to ask lots of questions of others, but when someone asks her a question she gets annoyed. I must admit that Kitty did irritate me a little in this instalment.
