31. Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand by Carrie Vaughn...

January 31, 2009
Title: Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand
Author: Carrie Vaughn
ISBN-10: 0-446-19953-2
ISBN-13: 978-0-446-19953-7
Paperback: 282 pages
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing, 2009

Kitty and Ben head to Las Vegas to get married, to escape the whole plan-a-wedding- "production". Her producer (ha ha!) arranges for her to do her show from Vegas, in front of a live TV audience. And books Kitty & Ben into a hotel hosting a gun show convention, where they run into acquaintances from Ben's (& Cormac's) past.

Kitty's knack for finding trouble follows her to the city that never sleeps, and she runs into vampires, a magician whose magic seems real, and an animal act with shifters, in addition to the hunters on her trail (gun show = crazies with a penchant for hunting Kitty & those like her). Her wolf does not like all the smells in the strange town. And gets more antsy when Ben disappears while he's playing in a poker tournament.

Kitty's quest to find Ben takes her to the vampires, magician, and animal act, where she finds something evil that explains the lack of werewolves in town. And with a little bit of help, she finds her mate, escapes from danger, and gets married. Whew.

Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand is a good continuation of the Kitty Norville series (so, is she Kitty O'Farrell now?). I started reading Kitty Raises Hell (#6), and wonder if #5 exists to introduce characters into Kitty's ever-evolving journey. Even so, it's a good, well-written read.
