REALITY BITES

Talk radio host and werewolf Kitty Norville has agreed to appear on TV's first all-supernatural reality show. She's expecting cheesy competitions and manufactured drama starring shapeshifters, vampires, and psychics. But what begins as a publicity stunt will turn into a fight for her life.

The cast members, including Kitty, arrive at the remote mountain lodge where the show is set. As soon as filming starts, violence erupts and Kitty suspects that the show is a cover for a nefarious plot. Then the cameras stop rolling, cast members start dying, and Kitty realizes she and her monster housemates are ironically the ultimate prize in a very different game. Stranded with no power, no phones, and no way to know who can be trusted, she must find a way to defeat the evil closing in . . . before it kills them all.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Werewolf radio host Kitty Norville is back—and this time, she's agreed to appear in a reality TV show about supernatural phenomena. When she and her costars—including a magician, a were-seal, psychics, and vampires—arrive at a remote Montana hunting lodge, they discover that someone who knows their weaknesses is hunting them. With its rapid-fire dialog and action-packed plot, Kitty's latest adventure is sure to please fans of the series and might bring some new readers on board. VERDICT The seventh entry in Vaughn's top-notch paranormal series (Kitty Raises Hell) is as strong as ever. Readers of Kim Harrison's "Hollows" series and Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files" will appreciate Kitty's sarcastic wit, ingenuity, and independence.

    Romance, action, and mystery come together in this fabulous urban fantasy

    One of the talk radio hosts on KNOB is werewolf Kitty Norville, who was forced to change on the air. Since her outing, other supernaturals that include weres, vampires and psychics have also come out in the open. Mortals either believe or think strongly a conspiratorial fraud is occurring. The paranormal want acceptance in a mundane world so when SuperByte approaches Kitty to join others of her supernatural kind on a reality TV show, she accepts.

    They are flown to a lodge in the mountainous wilds of Montana with no one around for miles. At first the filming proceeds like any reality show, but soon the weres, vampires, and psychics wake up to find all electrical power cut off and three crewmen dead in the plane and three others missing. They are further trapped and isolated by silver fences and weapons. The contestants know they are in mortal danger. A natural leader, Kitty takes charge with resolute determination to kill her enemy before they kill her. Lives are lost on both sides as Kitty struggles to prevent a massacre in the lodge prison.

    Romance, action, and mystery come together in this fabulous urban fantasy mindful in a paranormal way of Christie's And Then There Was None. Kitty is an alpha Lara Croft type heroine who goes into danger with her eyes wide open and a grit to be the predator and not the prey. She not only becomes the leader, she is there only hope of survival as slim as that seems as Kitty's House of Horrors is a death trap.

    Emotional Thrill Ride

    I'm still recovering from being put through an emotional wringer by a story that was spiced with nonstop action, suspense and an ending that was chilling and heart stopping in its scope.

    I'm a Kitty Norville fan and have been since the first title hooked my eye. Even if a reader has never read any books in the previous series, Kitty's House of Horrors stands alone with surprising strength and ease.

    The basis of this tale is a TV show that is too good to be true. Although there are some repeat characters from a few previous books, a reader does not need to know their background. Ms. Vaughn gives a new reader enough information to understand the connections between them which helps a reader care about what happens to the secondary characters.

    Kitty is still experiencing her happily ever after but it's been a bumpy ride. In this installment, Kitty's job puts her in a position to do a show away from home, her pack and the love of her life and mate, Ben. It's a very realistic scenario as many jobs take a partner from home for seminars, presentations or further schooling. I bet Kitty wished she'd have been making a presentation to Werewolves Anonymous or something instead of fighting for her life. Her personality is still maturing and growing and when push comes to shove, she cares for others and wants to protect them - even total strangers. She's that wonderful of a person and I've enjoyed watching her grow, even when it hurts.

    The secondary characters are all relevant to the plot and emotional turmoil that screams off of the pages with each successive discovery on how horrible the situation is. I will warn readers that there will be sadness. There are those who end up being "red shirts" in reference to Star Trek where you know those wearing red uniforms aren't going to make it. I was completely invested in most of the characters so when things started to go wrong I felt it in my gut. Ms. Vaughn did not shy away from the harsh reality needed to tell the story where she needed it to go, no matter how much I wished she could have. To say I was affected by the turn of events is an understatement. The suspense, drama, fast clipped action and relevant dialogue were all written with impact and vivid clarity. The characters weren't the only ones feeling the tension.

    The high point came with the Calvary but by then the damage was done. The resulting wrap up that told me the whys of it but just didn't justify the carnage they wreaked. I guess that's true for any crazy psycho demented zealots. They got what they deserved and I'm glad but the cost was too high. When a book makes a reader feel the sadness of loss and a tear threatens then I know the author did her job and Ms. Vaughn certainly did hers.

    My most favorite part is the happy reunion. I didn't get to revel as long as I'd like, basking in the glow of happiness but the reunion between Kitty and Ben is as romantic as ever and I turned the last page with a sappy smile on my face. They really are good together.

    Kitty's House of Horrors will keep readers at the edge of their seats, maybe even holding a Teddy Bear for comfort as the scope of insanity thrust upon Kitty and the crew becomes apparent. I gasped, I ground my teeth from the suspense and my heart hurt for Kitty and even for Anastasia the vampire. No one walks away from this one unaffected and that includes this reader. The writing is as fresh and vibrant.

    Kitty in the woods

    I have enjoyed all the Kitty books as I did this last one. Kitty is once more in danger and participating in, of all things, a supernatural reality TV show. (Could there be such a thing?) I enjoyed the convention of supernatural creatures as the thought of them meeting together and coping with one another does tickle the imagination. The suspense was well handled. It is overall an enjoyable book as the others have been.

    Kitty snarks again!

    Kitty's verbal repartee is as strong and hilarious as ever. Even knowing that things are going to go horribly wrong the story can still surprise, and though some of it made me sad it was still a fun read.

    Cancel the rest of the day-you won't want to put this one down!

    Carrie is an amazing story teller! Kitty's House of Horrors brings back old friends, introduces new, and there is no telling who will survive the latest saga in the Long Game! Not your typical fairy-tale ending, which makes the story that much more engaging.

    Kitty howls again!

    Another fun romp for the flippant and furry Kitty. Though with the powers combined in a house full of supes they should have mopped up sooner with less casualties. Can't wait for Cormac to get back in action. What will that boy do next,hmmmmmm.

    The most of the characters are introduced in her past books. Some are new. There are twist and turn that I have come to expect in The Kitty Norville Series. Carrie Vaughn always leave you wanting the next book.

    awesome, as usual

    This book lived up to the rest of the kitty series, and I read it in 2 days. I hate watching scary movies but reading it is so exciting and suspenseful. I would highly recommend if you are a kitty fan.

    Not the most original plot, but still entertaining.

    Another good read. Kitty is in trouble, again. I wish there would have been more about Cormac, Ben and the whole Denver pack. The "hunting" plot has been done in many other urban fantasy novels but it still works here. Several new, and interesting characters emerged in this book. I hope we can re-visit them as Kitty's life goes on.

    VAUGHN NAILS YOU TO THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT

    Kitty Norville has a nationally syndicated radio talk show. She is a werewolf, a leader of her pack, a prominent voice of the supernatural community, a wife and partner to her husband. What she is not, is a women with alot of leisure time on her hands. So, when a pair reality TV producers ask her to join other supernatural beings for two weeks in a very beautiful, but remote, lodge in Montana, she reluctanly agrees. Publicity for her show and a paid vacation, what could be wrong with that? What she gets is a sleigh ride thru Hell. Blood, terror, suspense, betrayal, destruction, death, grief and loss. Will our heroine survive? Read the book. It is well worth your time.
    Carrie Vaughn has given us, once again, a wonderful book that is full of amazing characters, a fantastic story line, yet, leaves us on the edge of our seats, yearning for the next installment. Just like every good book should.
