42. Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn - Review & GIVEAWAY!!

February 25, 2009
*** THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!! ***
Kitty Norville is a DJ with a secret - one that keeps her away from family events, and changes her work schedule. She's sick of taking requests for lame songs, and her "home" life is no picnic either. So she starts letting it out at work, kinda like I do - except that she has tons more ears listening to her woes and offering (advice) feedback...

All of this sharing opens her eyes to the things that are not alright with her pack, first and foremost with the pack's bullying leader. And the local vampires send someone to kill her when they decide that Kitty's radio show threatens to expose their existence. Which exposes Kitty's secret. The local cops show up asking questions when a naked, bloody, body is found outside her apartment - and asking more when more bloody, battered, bodies are found around town. Kitty is now bouncing between her show, her pack's disapproval, helping the cops track down a psychotic serial-killer werewolf, and looking for a caravan of people claiming to be able to "cure" vampirism... I got tired on her behalf, just reading the book!

Providing levity amidst all this seriousness is her interaction with the callers to The Midnight Hour. From a guilt-ridden (ex-)Catholic vampire to the dude looking for an orgy, the callers range from the hilarious and ridiculous, to the somber and sympathetic. Levity's good, though, because outside of the studio, Kitty's not having a good time at all.

Kitty and the Midnight Hour got me hooked on Kitty. She's not the kick-ass heroine yet, but the beginning of that Kitty is here. And after following her through this journey, I had to know how she fares. (& I'm very glad I did!)
