Kitty and the Midnight Hour

Book review on Kitty and the Midnight Hour, (Kitty Norville #1) by +Carrie Vaughn

Rated it
Blurb:  Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station - and a werewolf in the closet. Her new late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged is a raging success, but it's Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew?

I thought this book offered more than what I was expecting, I loved it! My initial thoughts before even starting the book was it was going to be pretty mellow, because it's about a radio talk show DJ, but who happens to be a werewolf. Boy, was I wrong.

Kitty works as a DJ in a radio station in Denver, the night shift. One day she makes a comment, and poses a hypothetical question about a local murder on the air, and the calls roll in. No one could have anticipated the snowball effect that Kitty's actions would have.

The big problem with Kitty's success is that it poses a threat to her pack as well as the local vampire family. See the humans don't know they exist. When people, supernatural's I should say, start calling in, everyone human thinks that this is all a big joke, and aren't taking the discussions seriously. But the vampires and werewolves are taking it seriously, and in a big way!

Arturo, the head of the vampire family in Denver has a meeting with Carl, the werewolf pack leader, about Kitty quitting her show immediately! It is an embarrassment to the leaders of the supernaturals, and a threat that one day the humans may start to believe that they are real.

When Kitty is called by Carl for a "talk", she goes to her friend TJ first, the second in command of the pack. TJ's character is very much the best gay friend, who sympathizes with Kitty a lot, and knows how to comfort her when she needs it, but also is tough, and can kick ass and hold his own within the pack. As we go along the story, we are introduced to the pack. Their is great detail on the pack dynamic and the personalities of each pack member. I really enjoyed how the author created this world, it was very unique and refreshing.

As Kitty's show becomes more and more popular, and she refuses to quit despite the order from her pack leader and the vampire dude Arturo, the threats start, and Kitty is faced with life and death on many different occasions. She has multiple people trying to kill her, the police get involved in one of those cases. Thinking that they are getting nowhere, the detective on the murder spree case decides to ask Kitty for her assistance. So now we have Kitty trying to help solve a crime, dodging death attempts by multiple factions, and oh, did I forget to mention the psycho occult church leader dude that claims he has a "cure" for the surpernatural's?

There is also a potential love interest underlining this story, but to talk about it, I would have to kill you afterwards. lol...

As Kitty's fame rises, so does the action in this book. The only negative thing I have to say is about the "bad people" in this book. I am pissed they didn't get their heads ripped off and shoved up their ass! I know this is a series though, so I'm hoping justice is served to them very soon!
