Overview

Kitty's radio show is as popular as ever and she has a boyfriend who actually seems to understand her. Can she finally settle down to a normal life? Not if this is just the calm before the storm. When her mother falls ill, Kitty rushes back to Denver—and right back to the abusive pack of werewolves she escaped a year ago. To make matters worse, a war is brewing between the city's two oldest vampires, threatening the whole supernatural community. Though she wants to stay neutral, Kitty is again drawn into a world of politics and violence. To protect her family, her lover, and herself, she'll have to choose sides. And maybe become what she hates—a killer.

Chapter One

I hated the smell of this place: concrete and institutional. Antiseptic. But all the cleaning in the world couldn't cover up the unhappiness, the sourness, the faint smell of urine. The anger.

The guard at the door of the visiting room pointed me and Ben to empty chairs at a table on one side of a glass partition. The room held half a dozen cubicles like this. Only a phone line would connect us to the other side.

I was shaking. I didn't like coming here. Well, I did, and I didn't. I wanted to see him, but even being here as a visitor made me feel trapped. The Wolf side didn't handle it very well. Ben squeezed my hand under the table.

"You okay?" he said. Ben had been coming here once a week to see Cormac. I didn't come quite as often-once a month, for five months now. I'd never get used to this. In fact, it seemed to get harder every time, not easier. I was so tense, just being here exhausted me.

"I think so," I said. "But this place makes me nervous."

"Don't let him see you upset," he whispered. "We're supposed to be supportive."

"I know. Sorry." I held his hand with both of mine and tried to stop the trembling. I was supposed to be the strong one. I was supposed to be the one who helped Ben keep it together, not the other way around.

On the other side of the glass, a guard led out a man wearing an orange prison jumpsuit. His light brown hair was cut shorter than it used to be, which made his face seem more gaunt. I tried to convince myself that he wasn't thinner. His mustache was the same as always. So was his stoic frown.

My smile felt stiff and fake. Cormac would know it was fake. Had to be cheerful, couldn't let him see me upset.

He was handcuffed. When he picked up the phone to talk to us, he had to hold both hands up to his face. Ben held our phone between us. Leaning close, we could both hear.

"Hey," Ben said.

"Hey." Cormac smiled. Broke my heart, him smiling like that behind the glass. "Thanks for coming."

"How you doing?"

Cormac shrugged. "Hanging in there. No worries."

He was here on felony manslaughter charges. He'd killed to save my life, and now he was serving time for it. I owed him a huge debt, which hung on me like lead weights.

It could have been worse. The only way we could all sit here smiling at each other was thinking of how much worse it had almost been. One or all of us dead, Cormac in here for life-

He didn't seem to begrudge me the debt. Right from the start, he'd approached the prison sentence as doing penance, just like he was supposed to. Just another obstacle to overcome, another river to cross.

Ben handled this better than I did. "You need anything? Besides a cake with a file baked in?"

"No. Just more of the same."

I'd been ordering books for him. It had started out as a joke after I'd accused him of being illiterate. Then it turned earnest. Reading kept his mind off being trapped. Kept him from going crazy.

"Any requests?" I said, and Ben tipped the mouthpiece so he could hear me.

Cormac shook his head. "I'm not picky. Whatever you think is good." I had a list of classics I was feeding him. But no Dostoyevsky.

We had an hour for small talk. Very small talk. I couldn't say I'm sorry, because then I'd get upset. Leave on a happy note. Ben and I wanted to make sure Cormac got out of here in one piece, or at least not any more damaged than he was when he went in.

"Would you believe some of the guys listen to your show?" Cormac said.

"Really? That's kind of weird."

"I tell them you're not that mean in person. I'm ruining your reputation."

"Great," I said, smirking. "Thanks." Ben chuckled.

"You two look good," Cormac said, leaning back in his chair. "You look good together." His smile turned satisfied, almost. Comforted.

He'd told us both to look after each other. Like he couldn't trust either of us to take care of ourselves, but together we'd be okay. He was probably right. Ben and I had cobbled together our little pack of two, and we were doing okay. But it still felt like we were missing something. He was sitting across from us, on the other side of the glass. And we were all pretending like everything was okay.

A guard loomed behind Cormac. Time's up.

"I'll see you next week," Ben said.

Cormac said, to me specifically, "Thanks for coming. Everyone in here's ugly as shit. It's nice to see a pretty face once in a while."

Which broke my heart again. There had to be more I could do than sit here and be a pretty face, however pretty I could possibly be with my pale skin, blond hair tied in a short, scruffy ponytail, and eyes on the verge of crying. I wanted to touch the glass, but that would have been such a cliché and hopeless gesture.

He put the phone back, stood, and was gone. He always walked away without turning to look, and we always stayed to watch him go until he was out of sight.

Ben put his hand on my shoulder, urging me away. Hand in hand, in silence, we left the prison gates and emerged into too-bright summer sun and a baking parking lot. Quietly we slipped into the car, Ben in the driver's seat. Then the blowup happened.

He closed the door, settled for a moment, then hit the steering wheel with a closed fist. Then again, and again, throwing his whole body into it. The car rocked. I just watched.

After a moment, he slouched back. He gripped the steering wheel, bracing himself. "I hate this. I hate that he's in there, and there's nothing I can do."

He blamed himself as much as I blamed myself. If I hadn't needed saving, if Ben had found the right legal out-and there was Cormac, accepting it all without complaint. He and Cormac were cousins. They'd grown up together, looked out for each other, and now they were helpless.

I touched his forearm and squeezed, like I could push out the tension. He sighed.

"Let's get out of here," I said.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I have liked all the "a werewolf named Kitty" (great bit of humor there) books, but with Kitty and the Silver Bullet I could really settle in and enjoy the story. This is because of the indepth understanding of how packs, alphas etc. really work that Carrie Vaughn displays in this story.
In Kitty and the Silver Bullet Carrie Vaughn demonstrates she's done her homework on wolves and other pack animals on a massive scale. She even shows she has an understanding of what "Alpha" really means in the world of pack and herd animals. I cheered when I read the proof she recognized and understood that packs and herds have two leaders, a male for protection purposes and a female for seeing to the everyday needs of the pack. An animal lover picks up on this.
I have quite the love-hate relationship with a lot of werewolf books because so many of the authors haul out the old "alpha equals dominance by muscle" idea and warmed it over. Carrie Vaughn has broken out of this convient trap and produced a prototype I hope many more writers of werewolf and shapeshifter fiction will emulate. A very good read, highly recommended.

Kitty the werewolf feels good about being a werewolf as her radio show is a success and she even has a boyfriend. More critical no one has recently tried to kill her (something she could not say through three previous books).----------- When her mom becomes ill, Kitty drops everything to return to her Denver home to help her. However, the Mile High City was not a safe haven for her when she lived there and had a graveyard radio show. Her former pack has not forgiven her for exposing them on the air and for leaving no one walks out on a werewolf pack. Two vampire sects are in a cold war that is turning hot blooded with the threat of pulling in the entire paranormal population into a civil war. Kitty is caught in the middle when all she wants to do is nurse her mom back to heath.----------- The latest Kitty werewolf damsel in distress tale is a fun paranormal chick lit as Kitty proves you can come home to face the same trouble you left behind. Kitty being her natural made self gets caught in the middle of a cold war turning increasingly hostile amidst the divided vampires and her former pack who wants her to leave Colorado immediately. As Kitty dodges silver bullets while ripping out a few hairs in her amusing satirical way, you won¿t find Cheney lose what is left of his hair to appear on her show.------------ Harriet Klausner

I don't know why this book sat on my shelf for so long! Since the first book, I have loved this series!After refusing to help Rick get rid of Arturo, which would also require facing Carl and Meg, Kitty is forced to go back to Denver when her mother goes in for a lumpectomy. Bound and determined to stay under the radar, Kitty is approached by the agent of a famous Broadway leading lady. Seems as though she wants to "come out of the closet" about being a vampire on Kitty's show! Unfortunately, that means admitting that she is, in fact, back in town. It doesn't seem to cause too many issues, until an abused, blond werewolf shows up at KNOB. After facing abuse from Carl for a long time, Kitty feels a strong kinship to this young girl and wants to help her. And, that, is the beginning of the end.In Kitty Takes a Holiday, I seriously wondered about Kitty being with Ben. They seemed to work, but . . . . Well, I wanted her with Cormac! I felt that this book was able to address the issues surrounding Ben and Kitty and manage to sort them out. With Cormac in prison, Ben was able to slid into that role while still being true to himself. The audience could definitely tell that the cousins spent a lot of time hunting together; however, it was obvious that Ben was not a cold blooded killer. However, he has some serious balls when the need rises!I liked that Vaughn added in Jenny. Honestly, there was no way to make Kitty stand up to Carl and Meg. Even though she no longer wanted to be a part of that pack, she would rather run away and not face them. Meeting Jenny and trying to save her was the only thing that could have pushed Kitty to that point. And, at some level, it was inevitable if she wanted to stay and help her family.I was a little disappointed with the final confrontation between Rick and Arturo. I completely understand why it happened the way it did, but I was hoping for more of a vampire knock-down-drag-out.Carl finally showed his true colours. A bully is nothing but a coward when actually confronted and cornered. He wanted nothing more than to save his own skin, and I'm not surprised. Even though I would have liked Kitty to kick his ass, the way it ended was fitting.It was nice to see that she decided to follow in Ahmed's footsteps with New Moon ^_^

Carry Vaughn once again creates a very entertaining tale. There's lots of plot twists and difficulties for Kitty to navigate, and though I didn't like the certain amount of whining Kitty did, I'm glad she stepped up to the plate in the end.SPOILERS - Kitty returns to Denver when her mom becomes ill and gets tangled up in a power struggle. Rick is trying to replace Arturo, and asks for Kitty's help, in part because the were's have become chaotic under Carl. Kitty refuses at first but finally agrees and comes up with a plan that uses both her radio station and police ties. She takes over the pack and agrees to marry Ben.

The Kitty series has become one of my favorite series. She is a reluctant heroine, and even though she has a stubborn streak, she is open to trying new and different ways to deal with her challenges. I'm glad that Kitty is involved and not slavering and being slavered over by hunky men. Don't get me wrong, it's been fun in many novels, but it is refreshing to find someone who doesn't find it necessary to use that tool to move a story forward; or worse, bury a story under the constant sexual intentions of all the characters involved.

The fourth book in the "Kitty Norville" series was as thrilling as the previous three. They actually get more engrossing as they go along. Kitty was run from her hometown at the end of the first book, and now she has been called home again. Her mother is ill and the future is uncertain. Kitty and her fianace Ben head to her mother's side. She has no sooner gotten in the door, than she is being asked to help Rick, the vampire, overthrow the current vampire. In order to do that, Carl and Meg, Kitty's previous abusers need to be removed from their Alpha of the Pack positions too. While there was plenty of action, it seemed slightly easier resolved than in previous volumes. What I have to say really stood out for me is Vaughan's ability in this story to really shine on Kitty's personality. She is both amazingly tough and tiptoe sensitive. That makes her as real as you or I. We may not have to face vampires and werewolf packs on a routine basis, but we certainly have to be tough sometimes when it would be easier to run away. And most of us are to some degree sensitive. We are breakable. So is Kitty. I relate to Kitty, and I think she is a wonderfully strong heroine who is headlining an awesome and competant series.

Kitty's mom get sicks so she heads back to Denver. In Denver she must deal with the fallout of her past decisions and pick a side in a vampire turf war. Another excellent showing in the series. Kitty is a great character and Ms. Vaughn surrounds her with many wonderful supporting characters. Everything is really believable and you are able to immerse yourself in Kitty's world. Great plot as well.

***Minor Spoilers*** SORRY!!!!Seriously, you can't even read the back cover of this book if you haven't read the previous 3 in the series without something being given away. I will try not to spoil anything but don't say I didn't warn you.Kitty is heading back to Colorado and her hometown Denver which is something she thought she would never do. Her mother is sick and she realizes that she has to go back. The vampires are having problems back in Denver as there is a power struggle going on. Of course Kitty finds erself in the midst along with dealing with her former pack.I am happy to say that I have yet to not like a Kitty book and of course this one doesn't disappoint. Kitty is stronger than ever and while she did have a few "weaker" moments, it wasn't anything huge that took away from her as a character. In fact, I thought that this book made her even more likeable and easy for me to relate to. And that is important sometimes...that the reader can relate to the main character and the choices that they make. There were twists that I didn't see coming at times and this was a real page turner. I like that we continue to see Detective Hardin in these books as she struggles to regulate and investigate cases relating to the supernatural. In talking to other readers of this series, I have to voice my opinion that I really like the relationship that Kitty is in. I've heard that some readers wanted it to go in another direction but I like the way that it is turning out. All in all, another strong read in this urban fantasy series. I am becoming a HUGE fan of Carrie Vaughn!
enemyanniemae on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I enjoy this series so much. It is fast paced and adventurous, with wonderful characters and clever dialogue. I was afraid that the story would begin to become stale and unimaginative. Wrong wrong wrong! Vaughn knows how to keep me interested. I've already picked up the next one in the series.

One of Kitty Norville¿s guiding principles is her lyncanthropy is a disease and she must live within the confines setup by human society if she¿s going to be happy. The wolf side of her nature has different rules from her human side. The two sides often conflict leaving Kitty to make some hard choices. I love it.In Kitty and the Silver Bullet the one thing that can make Kitty return to Denver has happened. Her mother, who checks in with Kitty each week via telephone, is ill. Kitty tries to keep a low profile in Denver but with two of the city¿s oldest vampires readying for war to determine which of them will control the city it¿s not possible. She is on friendly terms with one while the other is aligned with her old pack leader.This time Kitty isn¿t alone. She¿s formed a two-wolf pack with Ben. Every decision she makes can impact her human family, her new pack, and the vampire war.

I was more than ready to dive into Carrie Vaughn's next Kitty Norville book after finishing Kitty Takes a Holiday. The mood was right and I was not quite ready to say goodbye to the characters just yet, however temporary. I wasn't disappointed.Kitty and her new mate have settled in Pueblo, Colorado, far enough away from Denver not to cause problems, but close enough to continue with her radio show at KNOB. Her talk show is one of a kind. She reaches out to supernatural beings and others who want to learn more about them. When her mother is diagnosed with cancer, Kitty rushes home to Denver and finds herself in the middle of a power struggle between two powerful vampires. Despite her best intentions to stay neutral, Kitty is forced to choose sides. Her former pack leader wants her dead and will not rest until she is. With the werewolves and vampires on the brink of war and a powerful werewolf out for her blood, Denver is not the safest place to be--not even with the new supernatural police unit lead by Detective Hardin on the case.I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and entertaining. Kitty is coming into her own as an alpha wolf, still struggling with her former life and her new one. She is not a violent person and would prefer to talk things out, but even she realizes that the ideal is often not the reality. Kitty must make some very difficult decisions, and she isn't quite sure she is up to being the one to make them. Her insecurities come to the forefront in this novel.I am still not quite sure how I feel about her love interest. I like him very much as a character, and perhaps my hesitation to fully accept them as a couple comes from the fact that I am not sure the sparks between she and another man from her past have fully had a chance to die out. Still, her current relationship makes more sense for practical purposes, and I do hope they will be happy together.One of many things I like about Carrie Vaughn's series is that it is dark and a bit on the gritty side, while at the same time remaining easy reading. Carrie Vaughn is one of my comfort authors.

Kitty is finally coming to terms with who and what she is. Partly this is her identity as a werewolf, but more importantly, it is her strength as a leader, her power as a dj and as a voice for the people of the night, and her role in her family relationships. She runs up against more powerful and more intelligent creatures who use her for their own ends, but she walks away with what she needs.I'm liking this series a lot.
les121 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I'm pretty much going to restate what I said about the first three Kitty Norville books -- they're light, entertaining fluff. I wouldn't have read this far into the series if I didn't enjoy the story or feel some suspense and attachment to the characters. However, it's simply a quick, fun read for a rainy day, nothing spectacular. Although a few aspects are rather cliche, the premise and plot contain twists of originality that set it apart from other series of its kind, which seem like a dime a dozen nowadays. All in all, I recommend it for pure, escapist pleasure, but don't expect to be blown away.

Kitty and the Silver Bullet finds our heroine Kitty Norville finding some normalcy in her life. She has an understanding boyfriend, successful job and seems to be settling down into some sense of security. But as they tend to do, things fall apart. Kitty¿s mother gets sick and she has to rush back to Denver, where Kitty isn¿t exactly welcome anymore. Returning to Denver, Kitty finds herself smack dab in the middle of a war between two different factions of local vampires. She tries to fly under the radar, but the pack of abusive werewolves she had escaped from last year find she¿s back in town and they want her dead. Kitty tries to be Switzerland, but is drawn into all this intrigue and violence. In an effort to protect her family and friends, Kitty has to make a stand.As with all the Carrie Vaughn Kitty books, this one is a quick, fun read. Vaughn has clever and inventive ideas, good dialogue and manages to balance quite well between the action and the chick lit romance. I¿m one of those readers without much patience for romance novels, so I really appreciate the author¿s ability to add enough to move the characters forward, but not so much as to turn off readers like myself. So far, I¿d recommend all of these novels. I¿ve enjoyed each story and I always look forward to discovering what messes Kitty will find herself in this time.

krau0098 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This is the fourth book in the Kitty Norville series and it is officially my favorite. The third book was my favorite until I read this one. This book had so much more character development and suspense than the last one did; I really zoomed right through it and enjoyed it.Kitty is contacted by Rick (second in command to the city of Denver's master vamp). Rick thinks Arturo is loosing control of the city's vamps, he wants Kitty to side with him in a war against Arturo. Kitty doesn't want anything to do with it. Her new book just came out and is getting rave reviews, her radio show is doing awesome, and her and Ben have a pack all of their own.Then the unthinkable happens and Kitty's mom comes down with breast cancer, now Kitty has to return to Denver. When she finds out that her old pack has sided with Arturo she wonders is she will be forced to takes sides and to confront her old pack alphas, Carl and Meg.This book really cranked up the action a few notches, which I enjoyed a lot. It spent more time on vamp politics which were way more interesting that the werewolf pack politics dealt with up to this point. A lot of the characters were forced to face fears and develop in ways that were intriguing. I thought the pacing of the book was good, it pulled me right through the book. It was a fun and quick read. Overall my favorite in the series so far.These books won't change your life, but they are fun reads and I am really looking forward to the next one.
SunnySD on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Kitty didn't ever really intend to return to Denver - after all, if she goes back her old pack would be perfectly justified in ripping her to pieces. Which is why when an old friend extends an invitation to get involved in an upcoming bid to take over Denver's supernatural political arena she refuses. Unfortunately a family emergency has her heading toward the Mile High City anyway. Kitty's going to have to find some more backbone, because trouble keeps finding her, and with Cormac in jail and her relationship with Ben feeling strained, it's a tough proposition all the way around.Full circle back to the scene of book one. So much has changed, and yet some things never do. I'm glad to see Kitty's coming in to her own.
MonicaLynn on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I really enjoyed this one as well. Things start out with Kitty learning her mom is sick and that means she has to go back to Denver, where she has been running from for about the last year. She is concerned about going back to upset her previous pack and have a confrontation and tries to stay low, however as in previous books you know as well as I do that isn't going to happen and the battle is on. Don't want to spoil anything here but lets just say I enjoyed the action and the romance at the end.
Arctic-Stranger on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Pretty decent fantasy, involving a young woman who becomes a werewolf. This is the line of Kim Harrison's work, but from the werewolf point of view. Kitty is a fairly interesting character, the prose is decent, and the plots are engaging. There is some romance, but these are not romance fantasies. This is the fourth in the series, but the first one I read, and I found I could pretty much jump into the middle without any problem. I love to read these for relaxation and rest, after plowing my way through textbooks.
wbarker on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Perfect for : Personal reading, anyone who likes vampire or werewolf storiesIn a nutshell: In Kitty and the Silver Bullet (Book 4 of the series), Carrie Vaughn introduces politics of the supernatural kind into Kitty's life. Personal reasons compel Kitty and Ben to return to Denver, where Carl and Meg are still the alphas of the local pack, and will see their return as a challenge to their authority. Rick, the vampire who has always been seen at the edges of things with Arturo steps up to take over as the Vampire Master of Denver, but he needs the support of Kitty and the Denver pack in order to be successful. He promises to support Kitty and Ben in taking over the pack if they will be there when he makes his move. I simply love that Carrie Vaughn continues to add new (and interesting) twists and layers to her books. This book will keep you entertained!!Extended Review: I absolutely loved the new level that Carrie Vaughn brought this story to. I never saw the vampire politics and The Long Game coming, and I must say it has made the overall story even more intriguing. The interaction between Kitty and Rick is great, and I can't help but think that Rick is going to be in the story for the long-haul, which makes me excited.Characters: The story continues with a focus on Kitty, Cormac and Ben. In this book, Rick becomes another central character, while Carl and Meg ultimately receive a lesser role.Story-Line: This is another well-developed and fast-paced book that is sure to keep the readers interest. I really like how Ms. Vaughn has added the political play involving both Kitty and Rick to the story, adding a larger overall plot to the series.Readability: Fun, easy, entertaining, intriguing - I could go on here!Overall: This is my favorite book so far. Carrie Vaughn has included enough information in each book so that they could stand alone, but I think that reading them in order adds so much to the story as an entirety.

More of what makes this series great. Great characters, great story, fast pace. All around a great book.
lewispike on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Again following pretty much straight on from "Kitty takes a Holiday" this time Kitty is dragged back to Denver. Werewolf politics and Vampire politics come into play, and things are violent and messy. The Denver Police have set up a Paranatural Unit, headed by Hardin, who decides to treat it all as a gang war and adopt the same tactics as the police would there - but with stakes, crossbows and holy water instead.The story kind of rocks along nicely, although some of the supposed twists are rather obvious. The worst thing? The vampires vs the police. The police get right royally kicked, killed and smashed to bits. Kitty saves the day. But... vampires hide from humans because they're scared of a war between them. Why on earth are they scared? The daylight hours thing isn't discussed at all in this book, but a smallish force of vampires could wipe out the army, police etc. in a night judging on this book.The next book will follow straight on, with Kitty and Ben now alphas of the Denver werewolves. It will be interesting to see where it goes, but I hope the series picks up again.

The Kitty I Fell For is Back! I was pretty disappointed with the book prior to this one, Kitty Takes a Holiday, so I kind of stalled reading Kitty and the Silver Bullet. I'm so glad I got back into the series, though, because this book was quite good. I should note, there are some spoilers in this review if you haven't read the previous book. The most important change? Kitty is back to being a strong, dominant werewolf - instead of the whiny, self-pitying mess she was in Kitty Takes a Holiday. In Kitty and the Silver Bullet, Kitty is returning to Denver - her mom is ill so Kitty has to face everything she ran away from. Even though she's reluctant to do so and some of the old demons start to come back, it was so great to see her finding an inner strength you knew she had back in book 2 (Kity Goes to Washington). What really surprised me is that I LIKE Kitty with Ben! I thought I was going to hate that development, because well, you know... McCormick! I always liked Ben though, and as it turns out, I really like him with Kitty! I'm really excited to see where there relationship will go, especially considering some of the exciting developments in Kitty and the Silver Bullet both in their human and wolf relationships! And I'm eternally glad that I listen to this series, rather than reading it. Marguerite Gavin does a FANTASTIC job with Kitty and all the voices. Her voice is particularly great for Kitty's radio show, which is one of my favorite parts of the books - and I think it would be a real loss to get to listen to that. I'm on an Kitty Norville kick now - expecially since I just got offered books 6-14 on audio for review... so expect lots more Kitty in coming weeks :)
