    Kitty Raises Hell by Carrie Vaughn

    Well Kitty is really up against the wall with this one. If you aren't familiar with this series here's a quick synopsis. Kitty is a radio DJ who is a werewolf--and yes she's heard all the 'werewolf named Kitty' jokes. Anyway, the series follows her life and trials from the time she's bitten until she becomes (unwillingly) the most famous werewolf in the U.S. (read Kitty goes to Washington). Each books reveals a little more about one of the continuing characters and Kitty's growing circle of friends.

    In "Kitty Raises Hell", Kitty and Ben have just returned from Vegas where Kitty barely escaped being sacrificed by a band of wacko (very clinical term here) weretigers involved in a goddess worshipping cult (read Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand). Now it seems the bad kitties (heh heh) have raised and sicced some kind of demon on Kitty and her pack. It's followed them back to Denver and she'll need some serious assistance from old friends and new to get out of this one.

    I enjoy this series for it's emphasis on the lives of the recurring characters. This isn't romance. It's s/f or fantasy or urban fantasy, but however you phrase it, it's just plain good reading. This is another series I think HBO should snap up.

    Urban fantasy fans who like the works of Kelly Armstrong are going to relish this latest supernatural thriller

    Everyone who goes to Vegas understands the mantra that what happens there stays there; everyone except Kitty Norville as a piece of the Neon City followed her home to Denver. She first realized what happened when the word Tiamat is burned into the door of her restaurant the New Moon. In Vegas (see KITTY AND THE DEAD MAN¿S HAND), Kitty tangled with the Band of Tiamat, a lycan group led by a vampire who sacrificed other lycanthropes to the Babylonian Goddess they worshipped. Instead off her Bbeing sacrificed Kitty defeated them and apparently the survivors seek vengeance.<BR/><BR/>When Paradox PI, a reality TV show that investigates supernatural cases, enter an alleged haunted house; something destroys the trailer they are in and the smell of fire, brimstone, and sulfur permeates the atmosphere. That same odor arises when they conduct a séance at the New Moon; almost immediately the restaurant is on fire. The cameraman taped the incident and catches on the video a humanoid shape in the smoke. Kitty and her pack are magically protected, but the monster kills one of her people who didn¿t use her potion and several innocents. Kitty has to find out what it is and how to contain it without help from Roman the new vampire in town or the city¿s master vampire Rick because she deems the price of relying on either of them is too high.<BR/><BR/>Urban fantasy fans who like the works of Kelly Armstrong are going to relish this latest supernatural thriller. The protagonist is a kick butt heroine similar to Laurell K. Hamilton¿s Anita Blake as both are the lead alpha of an extended family/pack. They each understand the responsibility of protecting their submissive loyal followers. Carrie Vaughn provides another enthralling and spellbinding Kitty tale although this time it pays to read KITTY AND THE DEAD MAN¿S HAND first as this is a direct sequel.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Carrie outdid herself with this one!

    Wow. Thats all I can say. Kitty sure has come a long way from the pup in the first book. Same with Ben. This book was incredible! You really couldnt read fast enough to keep up with all that was happening. It really got dangerous in this book, and the ending was just ...wow. Can't give it away. But you will NOT be dissappointed. Each book I seem to love more. And you know, I wasnt sold on Ben and Kitty in the beginning (can we please get the bounty hunter out of jail already?). But they definitely grow on you. Their relationship is very strong in this book.

    exciting

    I picked up this book to start reading it and finally put it down when I read the last page. It is fast paced and keeps you wanting to know what is going to happen next.

    Ferociously Better than the other books of the Series

    Carrie Vaughn did it again. This is the best book in the series yet! If you have been following along with the rest of the series, you know that Kitty is being haunted by a were tiger lead cult. In this book it is not just the cult that haunts her and her pack. But with an unknown force that uses fire as a way to scare the daylights out of everyone around, Kitty must team up with some unlikely people to protect all in her charge.

    Good way to wrap up some loose threads

    This is a good conclusion to Dead Mans Hand. It wraps up many things and leaves the reader what else Kitty and her Pack can come across next. Very good book!

    Kitty does it again!

    Kitty is a wonderful character, she is wonderful, she is the girl store if you know what I am getting at. She is also like your little sister in the way of getting her self involved with everything. She needs to read "Art of War" and take self defense classes though. this book is a great read when you have the time.

    to hell and back

    I like the characters and some of them are offbeat. Plot is always good and thrilling. I like her vampire friend

    VAUGHN'S BEST BOOK YET

    (No Spoilers)<BR/> After reading "Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand", I was apprehensive about cracking open "Kitty Raises Hell". A few hours later, I closed the book and was very glad that I opened it. Vaughn has developed her world into someplace you wander, and happily become lost. "Suspension of disbelief" is not just for the theater. Any book that takes you in and does let you go until the last page is worth reading. This is a book worth reading.<BR/> When this series began, Kitty was low wolf in a pack that put the "dis" in disfunction. She was meek, abused, alone and at war with her "other half". As "K.R.H." begins, she is confidant without being arrogant, strong without being hard, married without being an appendage and, while not at peace, there was at least a truce with "wolf". Vaughn has grown her characters and brought their world to life and in doing so, has created a stage where, I hope, many more books will be played out.
