Format: 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.

Kitty and Ben head for Vegas - hello, gambling, mysterious shifters and a magician with a magic box...

What I've always liked about the Kitty books is just how ordinary Kitty is. In comparison to a number of other heroines in the Urban Fantasy genre she has no big over-arching storyline. She has no mysterious past to repent off and no secret destiny to prepare. She's not the only one who can save the world - again and again and again. She's just happens to be a werewolf and a radio host. Kitty is breathe of fresh air in the crowded fantasy genre and Carrie Vaughn makes it seem how ordinary it can be to be a werewolf. That ordinariness both works for and against the series at times. In Dead Man's Hand - Kitty and Ben run off to Las Vegas to get married and end up tangled with magicians, lycanthrope stage shows and rigged poker matches. Considering the number of extra-ordinary things they find in Vegas, it's amazing how ordinary the book is. Not much happens and there is little to connect the threads unless you include Kitty herself. However, some interesting things are brought up and it ends on a bit of cliff hanger. And as ever the most ordinary Kitty book is still miles better than the best book of some other authors.

By Shaz17 TOP 500 REVIEWER on 9 Jan. 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This time, Kitty's taking on Las Vegas!

Her mind is filled with visions of a romantic weekend with her boyfriend Ben, lounging for hours by the pool with a frufru drink in hand, and maybe even getting hitched. She also plans a live, televised version of her popular radio show.

The plans go awry, however, and she find herself sharing the stage with Balthasar, a mysterious lycanthrope who fronts an animal act of sexy were-felines; a shadowy convention of bounty hunters specializing in supernatural targets; a stage magician whose magic may be the real thing; and Dom, the playboy Master vampire of Las Vegas. When Ben vanishes, Kitty faces a myriad of suspects with ill intent - or Ben himself, getting cold feet.

Things get even hotter when Balthasar sets his romantic sights on her. Kitty discovers that there are forces at work here beyond even Sin City's reputation. Kitty gets help from unexpected quarters. Evan and Brenda, tough-as-nails bounty hunters, and Odysseus Grant, the magician with dark powers, help Kitty through the dangers of this thrilling tale and the surprising twists are turns just never stop.

The next one is due out March. 'Kitty Raises Hell'

Format: Paperback
In a word, disappointing.

Amongst all the other werewolf novels that are available what sets the 'Kitty' series apart for me is the humour - well, that and the general lack of too much sex and male dominance. Thankfully not lacking any of its sense of fun, what was missing for me in this particular instalment (the fifth book in the series) was the lack of story.

What I've come to think of a 'bridging' novel, Kitty And The Dead Man's only purpose seemed to be a convenient way of laying the foundations for the sixth book in the series.

Impatient for it to get anyway only to be left feeling disappointed that it never really did - or at least not satisfyingly so - overall I'd describe this as a 'damp squib' of a read.

Still, not to be put off. I fully intend to buy books six and seven but only because I already have book eight on my TBR pile. After that it remains to be seen whether or not I continue with a series I've up until now enjoyed.
