Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Trouble seems to follow Kitty Norville. In this case, the trouble refuses to let go: On a mission to track down an intruder, our appealing werewolf becomes a captive in an abandoned silver mine. Her kidnappers belong to a bizarre cult that plans to recruit her for their own purposes. After first struggling to escape, Kitty discovers that resistance is more difficult than she first imagined. A mass-market and NOOK Book original.

From the Publisher
“With the Kitty series, Vaughn has demonstrated a knack for believable characters (even if they are werewolves) and mile-a-minute plotting.”—Sunday Camera (Boulder, CO)

“Vaughn’s a skilled writer, and has provided a well-paced, breezy outing. . . . An entertaining action story.”—Realms of Fantasy, on Kitty's Big Trouble“The only urban fantasy world where I want to read every book of the series.”—The Denver Post

“[Vaughn] manages to combine outright thrills with an offbeat sense of humor and then mesh it with Kitty’s dogged determination. The result—entertainment exemplified!”—Romantic Times Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, on Kitty's Big Trouble

“Vaughn’s trademark sense of humor continues to distinguish this urban fantasy series, and the seamless integration of a variety of paranormal creatures (including vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters) in the everyday world is entertaining.”—Library Journal on Kitty's Greatest Hits

    I love this series, but this book was a dud.  90% was Kitty's inner and outer thoughts while being held captive.
    Kitty was repetitive and boring.  It was the first time I saw Kitty "alone" for most of a book and realized she really needs 
    the other characters for hers to be interesting.  The new characters, the captors, were essentially dull, too.  There were about 40 pages of the book worth reading - advancing the plot line and action.
    It felt like Ms. Vaughn didn't have much for this book, but she stretched it out to fulfill the contract.  This really should have been a short story.

    Highly Recommended

    I have enjoyed all of Kitty's adventures but this one was a little different and more interesting. Kitty is on her own for most of this book and her companions, are only there in the beginning and the ending. I was captivated by the whole underworld experience as Kitty continues to battle the vampires involved in the "long game". As I tell everyone, I read series' like this one starting from book 1 and find myself so captivated by the world of "others" the author spins that each new book in the series is like an escape from my own if just for a little while. Very interesting.

    ~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    Wow, I’m not quite sure where to start with what I want to say…. I love Kitty Norville. She’s always been a fresh change in a sea where the paranormal series blend together as they always have the same thing to say. The books in this series are always original in plot and there is usually an interconnected storyline or bad guy that drives them forward. That being said, I may just be done reading it.

    I’ll try to explain why. Kitty lost the spark for me. In the past few books we haven’t gotten much in the way of changing of Kitty’s character. Yes, she’s the Alpha of her Pack. Yes, she’s learning to deal with the dangers she faces, but at the core she’s still a bit of a cynic and carries on the same way that she would’ve a few books back. I am not seeing the character growth.

    Then there’s Cormac. I’ve seen his characters morph and change into this weird thing that now is really also a witch who lives in his body. I used to LOVE him. And I can’t find it in me to love him anymore.

    As much as this story was still fresh and interesting, what with Kitty having to go to the Underworld and not knowing if she would make it out alive… I was sadly uninterested. Don’t get me wrong it’s still a good story. But I lost that love and spark. I feel like maybe it’s time to give this series a conclusion or a new twist.

    I got this a without checking reviews since I have enjoyed the series so far. This was a short read since I was able to skim from around page 50 to 250. There wasn't enough in this to make the read anything other than a yawn. I think the series looses a lot when the pack is not included.

    Another good read in the series.

    Vaughn has continued to make her stories in the series interesting and leaves the reader wanting more.

    Good, not great, but still worth reading!

    I am a BIG fan of all of Carrie's "Kitty" books, and look forward to each one of them. I did enjoy this one, but it was not one of my favorites. Carries really excels at the wonderful dialog and interaction between the major characters, which truly brings them to life for me. For the majority of the story, Cormac and Ben are not present. For that reason, I was disappointed. But, am I glad I bought and read the book, ABSOLUTELY!
    I hope the next book comes out soon!

    Got a little long in the tooth near the end. I am always surprised to see how often my home town of Monterey appears in authors stories.

    Kidnapped yet again...I have really enjoyed this series, having read all of the books so far. However, I just could not make myself like this one. It was just not very good. The weird cult was too far out for me. There was little of Ben or the other interesting characters. And I am tired of Kitty getting capture by nut jobs.
    I stopped reading at all the mumbo jumbo and skipped to the end since Kitty was destined to get out. I'm not sure I will read another one. Oh well...

      This book is part of the Kitty Norville series. It needs to be read in order. The first book is Kitty and the Midnight Hour.




         This is one of those books in a series, that I didn't outright hate but it wasn't as good as it predecessors. The story started out kind of interesting. Keep in mind, I don't need a book full of action and adventure. But it has to have a story that keeps me interested.
         I think the captivity focus, which , yes, is an important part of the tale, felt a bit too long. It got better, when things were being learned, and characters were actually verbally interacting. But when it really started moving, it got so much better, and I found it hard to put down.
        But it still wasn't the typical Kitty tale.

    I'm a big fan of the series. This particular book helps build the ongoing storyline and fills in yet more information about Roman. I thought it was a great story and a great lead to the next. I can hardly wait for the Kitty novel!

    The book is not exciting like the others in this series. I had to force myself to finish it and this will be last book I purchase from the Kitty Norville series.

    I want my Wethins

    I miss you. I wish I had kept you once I had the chance. Our first kiss, I should've told my boyfriend I had at the time and broke up with him. But we ended up telling him so him and i had a break that lasted for a month. You didn't talk to me at all during those dark days. Then once he came back he broke up with me for good. My grades weren't pleasant then so my mother took away my nook for a few weeks. I just got back last week to know you are engaged. I love you. At least be my friend again. I just need your voice.

    Should have been a novella

    This is an excellent series and I have enjoyed reading all the books so far. This one was not quite equal to the others. It should have been cut down and made into a novella. There just wasn't enough plot to support a full book and some of the parts were repetitive. I will keep reading the series and will definitely buy the next one.
