Carrie Vaughn, Kitty Raises Hell
Grand Central (2009) ISBN: 0-446-19954-0
Score: 4

The sixth Kitty Norville novel, in which we're formally introduced to the main villain of the series. It's nice to see the mundane authorities trying to deal with the supernatural, but I wish Kitty would use them more (specifically, I wish she would've at least considered telling them that someone she has a restraining order against has come to Denver, called into her show, and practically bragged about being responsible for several recent deaths and arsons).

Next Book: Lawrence Watt-Evans, The Turtle Moves!

Carrie Vaughn, Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand
Grand Central (2009) ISBN: 0-446-19953-2
Score: 4

The fifth Kitty Norville book, in which she goes to Las Vegas to elope. As usual, she does a show, runs into people who don't like what she is, and things get messy. A good volume of this series, though I thought the resolution was a bit too convenient (I would be surprised if the characters responsible are still alive when the next book starts). It didn't end with a cliffhanger as I was expecting; it seems that the publication delay of this book was so the events would still be fresh in your memory when reading the sequel (being published next month).

Carrie Vaughn, Kitty and the Silver Bullet
Grand Central (2008) ISBN: 0-446-61875-6
Score: 4

Fourth book about Kitty Norville, in which she returns to Denver (because her mother is ill) and learns more than she wanted to know about vampire politics. It's good to see her doing her radio show again (always the best parts of the books), and overall it was happier but bloodier than the earlier books.

Next Book: Kristine Smith, Endgame

Carrie Vaughn, Kitty Goes to Washington
Warner (2006) ISBN: 0-446-61642-7
Score: 4

Second book about Kitty Norville, werewolf radio DJ. As the only werewolf who publicly admits to being one, she gets subpoenaed by a Senate committee set up to decide whether these things really exist and what the government should do about them. I really like the direction this series is headed.

Next Book: Jasper Fforde, The Fourth Bear

Carrie Vaughn, Kitty and The Midnight Hour
Warner (2005) ISBN: 0-446-61641-9
Score: 2.5

Start of a series about a werewolf DJ who sorta accidentally brings the supernatural community into the public eye. Kitty's life and goals are similar to those of Butcher's Harry Dresden, but her attitude and the book's pacing is more like Harris' Sookie Stackhouse. A fast read and very entertaining (especially the people who call into her show). And it looks like we'll be heading into uncharted territory already with the second book, Kitty Goes to Washington (the excerpt shows her being subpoenaed for the Senate hearings).

Next Book: Kristine Smith, Rules of Conflict
