kitty's house of horrorsAbout the book:

Talk radio host and werewolf Kitty Norville has agreed to appear on TV's first all-supernatural reality show. She's expecting cheesy competitions and manufactured drama starring shapeshifters, vampires, and psychics. But what begins as a publicity stunt will turn into a fight for her life.

The cast members, including Kitty, arrive at the remote mountain lodge where the show is set. As soon as filming starts, violence erupts and Kitty suspects that the show is a cover for a nefarious plot. Then the cameras stop rolling, cast members start dying, and Kitty realizes she and her monster housemates are ironically the ultimate prize in a very different game. Stranded with no power, no phones, and no way to know who can be trusted, she must find a way to defeat the evil closing in ... before it kills them all.

drey's thoughts:
Oh, Kitty. The fame only grows, and with it, the notoriety. This time, it's reality TV calling... But how real is reality TV supposed to be? Especially when you're in the middle of nowhere, and people start dying. And then you find out that there's no way out. At all. So what's a trapped werewolf going to do?

Why, fight, of course. Because it's better than just sitting there like a duck on open water... Especially when the ducks are getting picked off one by one. And so it becomes a battle of wits, and retention. 

If you're a Kitty fan, you'll want to read this. Ben's only on at the beginning and at the end since Kitty's off in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, and spouses aren't invited. And Cormac gets early release for good behavior, but not till the end, so if you're a Cormac fan, you're waiting some more. The only thing I didn't feel satisfied by, is the why. Sure, the bad guys are trying to make a point, but it somehow didn't quite ring true for me. But hey, they eventually learned to not mess with my favorite werewolf DJ.

If you've never read Carrie Vaughn's Kitty books, give it a try. Start by coming back later today for a giveaway!

Sounds good, though I still find it hard to get into the werewollf/vampire/supernatural/fantasy genres. I'm just a wuss/scaredy cat:)

Oh, the books aren't that scary at all, lol... I've read some thrillers that had me hiding under the covers compared to these. And Kitty's just fun. I mean, c'mon. A werewolf named Kitty?? =)

I just finished this one and really enjoyed it. I was going through Kitty burn out but this one renewed my interest. Maybe it's because there wasn't so much Ben :) I'm not a big Ben fan and I'm glad for the Cormac news in this one!

This is a series I enjoy and I'm looking forward to reading it. I know she's married and Ben is fine, but I'm a fan of Cormac!
