~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog "KITTY ROCKS THE HOUSE goes back to what I originally liked about this series!" ~Under the Covers As I've mentioned before, I've found it difficult to enjoy some of the previous books in this series because of my fixation on what happened to Cormac and wanting and expecting his situation to be fixed. I have now, sort of, gotten over it. I'm not sure if it's because of that fact, or the plot of this book in general, but KITTY ROCKS THE HOUSE goes back to what I originally liked about this series! Basically we have a new vampire in town, and a new wolf. The vampire is.... a priest, and he's looking to recruit Rick into their order. The new wolf wants to be part of the pack, or does he really? And in the meantime, they are all still waiting to deal with The Roman. Kitty is not so much into her conspiracy theories this time around, and is also having to deal with the consequences of her lack of attention to her pack and to her family. She's still learning to be alpha and sometimes she gets it right, sometimes she makes mistakes. But in this book I believe she solidifies her connection to the pack. I have to also admit that Ben steps up a bit as her mate and as a strong alpha when needed, even though he's more beta than I like. But I've come to the conclusion that him being the way he is works perfect with Kitty, who is also not the take charge wolf either. Cormac on the other hand was a big help and some of his old personaility came through just a bit. He does seem to be growing into his connection with Amelia and maybe this is something that can just help in the future.I am looking forward to seeing more of that and more of the old Cormac. This was an extremely easy and fast read for me but had me gripped enough that I didn't put it down until I finished. *ARC provided by publisher

I've read all of this series. This is the last one for me. Every character in this book behaved irresponsibly and wrongly, all stemming from the simple nosiness of the very unconvincing alpha, Kitty. I have never believed in Kitty and Ben as alphas. Both are physically too weak. I realize that the writer's premise is that physical strength is not the most important aspect of an alpha. I could be sold on that, but Kitty doesn'have the moral chops to support this. And Ben is, as ever, Mr. Bland, a true mediocrity. Kitty's irons are, as always, hauled out of the fire by the talents of others. But simply being manipulative and incredibly nosy doesn't make any kind of leader, just a journalist (which she is, very convincingly). Bit not a werewolf alpha. I still hold her responsible for Cormac's jail stint - pulling her irons out of the fire again - but it never occurs to her to feel the least bit of guilt. A relationship with him would have been much more interesting than one with boring Ben. Ms Vaughn has just gone down so many wrong roads with this series now, that I think I've had enough. I'll stick to Patricia Briggs and Ilona Andrews for werewolves I can believe in (ridiculous as that sounds).

I absolutely love this author and all her books! This one was amazing just like the rest in the series. If you love fantasy set in current time then you will LOVE this!

Carrie Vaughn just never disappoints! This latest Kitty book still held all the magic of the previous novels!

This book not only returned to its roots in Denver but to the characterizations & humor that originally attracted me to this series. I don't want to give away any spoilers (unlike the first sentence of the blurb on Amazon for the *next* book in the series), but I was pleased to learn more about the psyche of Rick, the Master Vampire of Denver. And to see the way Kitty & Ben deal with a potential usurper to their Pack was quite interesting. Absolutely LOVED the various callers & guests on Kitty's radio talk show debating whether Shakespeare was truly the author of his works! I've got the next book pre-ordered & will definitely re-read this one! Vaughn has kept this series fresh yet each enough of a stand-alone to entrap a reader who joins the series in midstream.

Good enough to make me pre-order the next book when I can.

Kitty’s having a hard time — Rick is distracted, a newbie is challenging her authority, her pack is clamoring for her attention, Cormac is killing the good guys, and her sister is having a mid-life crisis. I don’t always pay attention to some of the more literary devices that may be used in my entertainment fiction; but, I felt that Kitty Rocks the House has such a strong theme, it’s hard to miss. It is, however, a little hard to define. Kitty is experiencing how both her sister and one of her pack mates, Trey, is suffering because Kitty is spending her time pursuing the things she feels are important — namely her show and the war against Roman–rather than her familial or pack obligations. In turn, Kitty suffers because Rick, Master Vampire of Denver, chooses to pursue something he feels is important–namely the validation of his continued belief in God in spite of being a vampire — while ignoring some of his responsibilities. So, perhaps the theme is either being true to yourself, or something about responsibility. Do you pursue what you believe is right in spite of the damage it may cause others? This is what Cormac and Detective Hardin so when they poke at Father Columban’s wards. Because they are curious — and think they are doing the right thing — they get a (supposedly good) vampire killed and cause Rick to leave Denver, leaving Kitty alone to deal with the city and the Long Game. I’m really surprised Kitty doesn’t get more upset about this, or even try to explain to Cormac and Hardin what they are doing. She just stands by and watches the chaos unfold. I don’t really understand her lack of reaction in that particular scene. I want to yell at both of them, to be honest. The pack has argued with Kitty before about taking care of them, their pack, over trying to take care of the world’s problems, of Roman or the vampires. I think this is a good argument and one many people with responsibilities have to face. Someone has to tackle the big problems, stand up in the big fights; but, often it’s done at a cost, usually to the people around you and your responsibilities to them. Which do you choose?

It's been a while since I visited Kitty's world - according to my Goodreads rating, January of 2013. Eeek! I must have liked it, I gave it 4 stars. However, thinking back, I can't really remember that it left much of an impact - not like those first couple of books where plot points seemed to be burned into my memory. Let's just say that this was one of those times that I was incredibly grateful for an author doing some backstory. So Kitty is back from London and looking to gain more allies against Roman and his 'Long Game' to rule over humanity. (Wait, that wasn't a secret right? Ya'll figured that out already, yes?) The Denver Master of Vampires, Rick, is partnering with Kitty towards this end. But, of course, things are bound to go wrong. First a new werewolf shows up and manages to stir up some trouble for Kitty and Ben. Then a Vampire Priest shows up and Rick suddenly is not available, spending all his time with him. In addition to all this, potential allies are trying to make plans to arrive and it is becoming very clear that Kitty's wolves have been feeling neglected, what with her away so much. While I did enjoy the book, it felt like filler, giving us a chance to take a breath before the next big confrontation. Yes, there was some fighting, but nothing like we've had before. There was the introduction of a new supernatural at the end, totally setting up the next book - Kitty in the Underworld. But my favorite parts contained Cormac, just as many of the scenes I remember from previous books revolved around him. He just does it for me. :) I gave this book 3 stars and hope that the next book has a bit more juice to it.

I love these books, and Vaughn can not write them fast enough! Ms. Vaughn puts a whole new spin on the Supernaturals.

     This book is part of a series. The first book is Kitty and the Midnight Hour. This is the type of series where it’s best to read the books in order.      This is one of those books in a series where big changes come. There’s several big decisions made. Tests of sorts, allies and enemies coming into play. A twist involving the Long Game. Plus, a choice that could change everything.      This was a typical, good read. Fast paced. A few twists, at points found it hard to put down. A great Kitty Norville installment.

Carrie Vaughn's books make me FEEL. I feel for the characters and feel like I'm part of the story because what happens in them matters. There were several times I got upset while reading this book. I wasn't upset in the manner of being offended, but because of the story evoking the appropriate feeling in me. Now that's talented writing. Each book in this series has gotten better. The overarching story has gotten more complex and in this one Ms Vaughn upped the ante. The main female character, Kitty, tests everything: status quo, preconceived notions and beliefs, and what's socially acceptable in the supernatural world. She calls BS on anything and everything that deserves it. The essence of the Kitty character is independent critically thinking. I love that about her and it's what makes her such a strong and likable character. This book has important revelations about the Roman conspiracy and also about Denver's Master, Rick. In addition to the supernatural side is the human side struggling to balance friends and family that we can all identify with. I relish the fact that Kitty questions herself but is not whiny about it. Ben is her rock, but not her crutch. In one part she's berating herself for not being there and her mother tells her that she may not always be immediately available, when she's truly needed, she's there. That is so life and the compromises we need to make. Even though this series is about the supernatural, I think it's a great illustration of life and our everyday struggles; the supernatural aspect is just a representation of being different.
