3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read, 12 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand (Kitty Norville 5) (Paperback)
"Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand" sees Kitty leave Denver and head to the City of Lights for some well deserved R & R, and to marry the man in her life. But things pan out a bit like a screw ball comedy.

Kitty ends up: staying in a hotel that's hosting a gun convention attended by bounty hunters who hate werewolves; hosting her radio show, 'The Midnight Hour', live on TV the night before her wedding; her beau gambling away their money and then disappearing without a trace; and finally delivering a letter to the Vampire Master of the City from Rick, Kitty's vampire friend and Master of Denver - which of course leads to lots of drama and trouble for Kitty!

Kitty also meets a group of were-animals that perform in a show on a daily basis in their animal form and after seeing it with her own eyes, Kitty senses something's just not right.

We also get to meet a new character, Odysseus Grant, a true magician. He's one of my favourite characters, he's so intriguing and I never really knew if he was friend or foe until the end.

"Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand" doesn't have as much action as the previous books, but there was still enough going on to keep me reading. I must admit that I am a little disappointed that Kitty is getting married. This seems to really cement the relationship between her and her man (I won't say who incase you haven't read the books yet). I much prefer my urban fantasy heroine to struggle with romance rather than it be all wrapped up neatly.

However, I keep getting mixed signals. Kitty says she's in love but then let's everything get in the way of actually getting married. Her man plans a poker tournament at the time of their wedding so they have to rearrange it and instead of getting married in the afternoon that push it back to six o'clock. This doesn't really convince me that they are in love...

VERDICT:

Despite my reservations about certain aspects, "Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand" is still a fun read. It's not on the same par as some of the preceding books, but I have a feeling that more is to come in the next instalments.
