Overview

Kitty in the Underworld (Kitty Norville Series #12) by Carrie Vaughn, Marguerite Gavin

As Denver adjusts to a new master vampire, Kitty gets word of an intruder in the Denver werewolf pack's territory, and she investigates the challenge to her authority. She follows the scent of the lycanthrope through the mountains where she is lured into a trap, tranquilized, and captured. When she wakes up, she finds herself in a defunct silver mine: the perfect cage for a werewolf. Her captors are a mysterious cult seeking to induct Kitty into their ranks in a ritual they hope will put an end to Dux Bellorum. Though skeptical of their power, even Kitty finds herself struggling to resist joining their cause. Whatever she decides, they expect Kitty to join them in their plot . . . willingly or otherwise.

Kitty in the Underworld 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 59 reviews.

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.

~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. *Review copy provided by publisher

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.

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.

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...

Too short for the money. Should have been a novella or finished developing the book of shadows line of the plot. Still love Kitty

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

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.

Things take a turn for Kitty when she’s kidnapped (again!) by people who think they have a way of getting rid of their shared nemesis, Roman – and this time for good. Much like Books 05 and 06, Kitty in the Underworld is not one of my favorite in the series. It feels like a "bottle episode;" except that the majority of the time, Kitty is with previously unknown characters. Most of the story takes place inside an abandoned silver mine -- so the setting is pretty confined and uninteresting. The characters who have kidnapped Kitty don't talk much, except in the most obscure terms. And, once again, the plot revolves around Roman without him even being around. Because Kitty is alone a lot, there is a ton of exposition. I wanted to smack Kitty upside the head when she found her way out of the mine, but then went back to her kidnappers. I get that defeating Roman is important, but can we say Stockholm Syndrome? That being said, some really good things happen in this episode, like Kitty's connection with the first Regina Luporum. A lot of this book is set-up for the last two books in the series, so you don't want to skip it. It's the same good writing, the same characters, the same world, and the same great audio narrator; it's just isn't one of Kitty's more exciting adventures.

The and a half stars. This particular Kitty Norville installment felt very different, tone-wise, from event up until this point. It was radically more introspective, which I quite enjoyed. She spent a decent amount of time ruminating on various myths, and the nature of stories that survive through the ages. It was thoughtful, and I appreciate getting that in a primarily-action series. (Not that there wasn't action, obviously--that terrifying wind demon returns briefly--but this particular book differentiated itself from the rest of the series in an intelligent way.)

Last month I read Kitty Rocks the House and unfortunately, it didn't rock my house. It felt more like a filler book or a transitional book. In a startling contrast, this book took me by the hand at the beginning and just wouldn't let me go till the very end. I couldn't believe how fast I was able to just whip through this. This was one of those books where it focuses on Kitty herself as she works her own special brand of insanity, without the help of Ben, Cormac or anyone else. It reminded me very much of some of the earlier books where it was Kitty alone against an enemy, trying to out talk and out think her opponent(s). It was Kitty at her best and sometimes worst. I think that this book was a huge jump towards the Dux Bellorum end game. We find out so much more about who he was, as well as exactly how long this Long Game has been going on. She didn't get any further toward his demise, but Kitty now has more pieces of the overall puzzle and more leads to follow. I am getting more excited about where this is heading. For me, this was a much better book than the last. And with only 1 more book to go till the ending, the tension is thick with anticipation. Plus, the next book is all about Cormac, gotta love that! I gave this book 4 stars.

  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.
