    Dumb bunny syndrome

    I know Kitty has a perchance for getting in trouble but even this was pushing it. I've read the whole series. This was the dumbest of the bunch. If people keep warning you and telling you something is bad news you don't have to understand the why of it you just have to stay out of it. And explain to me how a werewolf can get kidnapped by regualar folks in a public place without the use of silver. Buy this book if your are looking for mindless entertainment.

    more from this reviewer


    In many "slasher" films, the first victim is the stereotypical "dumb blonde". She wanders into the killers grasp with no regard to her own well being or to the danger signs along the way. Her end is a fine example of Darwinian theory at work. In Vaughn's latest work, "Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand", she has given us her own version of this heroine. Here is the problem, it is the main character, the heroine of the entire series not some throw away minor figure. <BR/> Vaughn has taken a strong intelligent woman and turned her into a complete moron. When told she would be walking into a trap...does she call the police?...threaten to expose the, closet, lychanthropes unless she gets Ben back? in her own pack for help? Rick, with whom she has a mutual support pact? No, she just walk right in and gets chained to a wall.<BR/> Someone once asked me what the difference between Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. In UF, the characters happen to the world and in PR, the world happens to the characters. Vaughn should make up her mind what genre she writes for.
