Review: Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn

51urprxs1ql-_sy344_bo1204203200_This time I picked up the right book! In NZ I confused Patricia Briggs for Carrie Vaughn. But in my defense the stories are similar. Anyway, onto review stuff.

The Kitty Norville series is urban fantasy. Kitty is a werewolf living in Denver and of course from time to time the clashing of the supernatural and natural worlds cause problems. The first book in the series is a coming of age tale where we meet Kitty and watch her come into her own as a person and a werewolf (you know, while she deals with murderous werewolves and hosting a talk radio show).

I enjoyed the book but these types of novels aren’t something I dedicate a lot of time to. They are fun, quick reads to intersperse between the heavier stuff. But if you are more into these kind of books I will tell you why I enjoyed it and maybe you can pick up a new series.

Kitty has a strong voice in the book. Her personality shines through clearly as a sassy, stubborn, but also sort of lost individual just trying to figure out her life. All the other characters have their own strong personalities and everyone compliments each other nicely. They mysterious, gruff werewolf hunter Cormac butts heads with Kitty but they also have a rapport. Key members of the pack are well represented and not just there for dramatic effect or because Kitty needs a pack. Things moved at a nice pace and the radio bits were very amusing.

I don’t plan to read the rest of the series just because it’s not really my type of book, but I would recommended it to anyone who is a fan of urban fantasy or is looking for an easy series to have in the wings when they need it.
