Review: Kitty and the Midnight Hour

I've been on a major dark/urban fantasy kick recently, so was very excited to pick up Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn not too long ago. This is the first book in the Kitty Norville Series, about a werewolf who hosts a call-in radio talk show. After talking down the hunter/assassin who's gunning for her in the middle of a show, Kitty gets swept up into a police hunt for a serial killer, all while trying to juggle the demands from her pack leader and his nasty partner.

The premise of the book is great and the story just flies by. I'm not so sure, though, about Kitty. She was just so passive in her own life, especially in her damaging relationship with her pack leader. But the book makes is clear that Kitty is growing up and that makes me hope that she'll become a more captivating character as the series progresses.

Buy Kitty and the Midnight Hour on Amazon.

  1. I think the initial passivity, and the subsequent show of strength in the following books, is what keeps me interested in Kitty. She wasn't strong overnight, y'know. Which is more of a "normal" process, in my thinking anyway. After all, growth is usually gradual. I can't wait to see what you think of the next books...
