    Great Adventure

    originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** What does Kitty, a colossal snowstorm and a few spastic werewolves have in common? Trouble with a capital T.

    I adore Kitty Norville and watching her character grow through this series has been fascinating. She's a radio D.J. who got bit and turned into a werewolf. She's had to stand up for herself and has done some pretty amazing things considering she was once a simple woman working her dream job. Now, she's standing up for others even when she has no valid reason for doing so. In Kitty Goes to War, I got to see her grow some more. This time she reaches out beyond her own pack and family. It's a huge leap because now she is playing in the big leagues and there is a lot at stake. Then again, it boils down to the basics - survival.

    Kitty's story is told in first person POV. Her internal dialogue allows a reader to understand her fears, concerns and determination to do what they say can't be done. I liked the fact that she doesn't let her anxiety and apprehension stop her from trying. She's not some super ninja chick with martial arts and voodoo abilities. She's like a woman I would probably work with who becomes a stronger more confident person through the challenges that life has thrown her way. She has compassion and heart and her only flaw is her optimism in the face of naysayers. Well, she doesn't see it as a flaw while others sometimes do, but she proves time and time again that they don't know everything, and I love it.

    The romance between Kitty and Ben is still going strong and still maturing. It's not just about a man and woman coming together and learning how to live with each other, it's also about a man who recently has been turned werewolf and is adjusting to that at the same time. Quite a juggling act yet Ms. Vaughn does it with panache and a sweet style. I think they complement each other and I feel all warm and fuzzy every time I get a glimpse of their connection. I have wanted Kitty to feel happy for a long time and this book lets me see that it's happening. She's come so far and she deserves a man like Ben.

    The external conflict is four fold. There's a lot of running around, and the pace is intense and frenetic. The writing was tight and energetic and captured the drama, the enormity of the danger and the emotions it engendered. Cormac is back and I'm so happy because I missed him. But he's got a new wrinkle in his personality and when it was finally revealed I was amazed. Astounded even because it's so wild and I got the greatest kick out of thinking how it can complicate Cormac's life. But nothing seems to faze the man and that makes me giggle. I think he's in for an interesting ride. I'm glad he's still part of the trio with Kitty and his cousin, Ben. They make a great team.

    I was chatting and gushing with another fan of Ms. Vaughn's and we both agree that we want to see more of Tyler. His character impressed us and we believe he could be a great asset to the series. As for me, I liked him as a person and I am very interested in what might be in his future. I hope the author doesn't let this kind of character fade; I think he can contribute to the action in the series. The way she wrote Tyler made me care about what happened to him and certainly throughout Kitty Goes to War, I was cheering for him. Of course that means the author did a stellar job of writing for that to happen.

    All That and a Bag of Chips.

    I love Carrie Vaughn but was super nervous about this book for several reasons. First - it's getting later in the series and I've been failed by several of my favorite authors around this time. Second - it's coming out so soon after the last one. Third - Carrie has been a rockstar by releasing so many books in a short time I was seriously worked about the content of this book suffering. Great news was - it was an awesome book. Around this time authors start recycling their plot lines - this one was brand new - but still tied in some of the former books to keep the plot going. I can't wait to see what comes up next for Kitty. A warning to readers: it's not a funny book - it's actually pretty deep and deals with some social issues. Plus I'm not sure I love what's going on with Cormac - but at least he's back in the books.

    Carrie Vaughn has not let me down yet!

    Although this is the 8th book in her Kitty Norville series, the author continues to delight me. There are not too many authors whose books I will re-read several times, but Carrie Vaughn is one of them. Each time I read them, they are as good (if not better) than the first time I read them. Kitty is a real woman living as normal as life as she can in a supernatural environment. Sure she's a bit kick-ass now & then, but she *is* a werewolf, after all. But seeing this character grow from the first book when she was a timid follower to become the strong leader that she is has been a treat. The next book in this series will be out in a matter of weeks & I can hardly wait because I know I won't be disappointed!

    I recommend it !!!

    I loved reading this. I have a daughter in Afghanistan, so I do understand the plight of our soldiers. I loved to know, that I least their are some extra ordinary people out there in this world, who help out our returning soldiers. Thank you. This book kind of hit home.
