You know the reality show is gonna have a glitch, but it's oh, so much more than I would have expected! It'll make you cry. Especially with all the set-up for this reality show and the games the producers play, the hoops they want the participants to jump through. The ugly truth of why.
All the paranoia at the beginning was rather annoying, alt...more
I don't know why I'm reading books so far out of order. In this my latest, I've skipped to book seven. I am pleased to say that the book stands on its own although gesturing a lot in its first half to characters I was not familiar with. You will be pleased to know that said characters drop out if you were planning on reading out of order as I have done.
Kitty, our protagonist, displays much more backbone than I can glean from Carmel's review of the first book in this ser...more

I love this series, and this was the best one yet! Kitty just can't seem to keep herself out of trouble. What I love most about Kitty's world is how much the Supernatural has come out of the closet. The general public doesn't just know about them, they're bombarded by them (in comparison to most Urban Fantasy novels). And the plot behind this novel would bring them into the spotlight even more. The beginning of this novel has quite a bit of humor, and definitely pokes fun at reality...more

In this book Kitty gets invited to participate in a reality TV show. Her and a bunch of other paranormal celebrities are supposed to spend a week at a house out in the middle of nowhere. With them will be a skeptic; they are supposed to convince the skeptic that paranormal creatures exist. Of course things start going terribly wrong when people start turning up dead. It is up to Kitt...more

Do you want to read an Anita Blake smack down? Read the early part of chapter two. At least another UF author is willing to make fun of Blake.
Vaughn’s Kitty novels aren’t particularly deep. Her novels are short, quick reads. Fun reads that don’t take very long to finish, like a B movie that knows it is a B movie and embraces it, like Snakes on a Plane.
In this installment, Kitty meets a reality show that bites back, and out...more

* Kitty and the friends she has made over the last few books are stuck in a house shooting a reality show. It was nice seeing all these characters together. Whose is back: Tina, Grant, Jeffery and some new ones.
* When the action gets going, it's crazy! People are popping off like crazy. Vaughn had no problems killing characters in this book.
* Cormic is up for parole (view spoiler)[their reunion is so sweet! (hide spoiler)].
* Ben fans will be...more
#7 Kitty Norville series, featuring werewolf Kitty who hosts a late-night talk show called The Midnight Hour. Kitty is approached by the producers of a bunch of cheesy reality shows who invite her to join the cast of a new reality show featuring all "Supernatural" guests--lycanthropes, vampires, psychics, magicians and other odd types. Kitty balks until they mention some folks she's met previously and liked who are already on board.
The cast of the show wi...more

Kitty is a radio talk show host. She deals with paranormal questions on her show. She is invited to a retreat with other paranormal experts. Oh, yeah, Kitty is a werewolf.
Once again, I am surprised. I was very dubious as to my liking this book. I really enjoyed it. Mz. Vaughn does a great job fleshing out the characters. You find yourself pondering the ramifications of being a supernatural being. Intolerance is highlighted and it doesn’t take a rocket sc...more
After the initial start and setup of this novel, around 30 pages or so, the story became a nonstop page turner for me. I couldn't put the book down, almost every scene left me w...more
Kitty’s House of Horrors is the seventh book in the series about werewolf DJ Kitty Norville. If you haven’t read all the previous Kitty books there are significant spoilers in this one especially regarding Kitty’s love life.
This time out, Kitty signs up for a Big Brother-esque reality show that drops her and a houseful of other supernaturals (and one skeptic) in a lodge in the middle of nowhere for two weeks of carefully planned reality. Kitty...more
Our intrepid DJ-slash-werewolf agrees to appear on a reality show about supernaturals. The group, which includes several shapeshifters besides Kitty, a couple of vampires and their person, a few psychics, the ineffable Odysseus Grant (remember him from Vegas?) and a skeptic of the abnormal and the religious are taken to a mountain lodge...more

This book was fantastic; exactly what I wanted, very exciting. I read it in one day, almost one sitting, because it was so good and I did not want to put it down.
It’s the same Kitty, wanting to do some publicity stunt, only ending up in a much different scene than she expected, with a lot more murder going on.
There was really only one main plot going on here, with perhaps the mention of something happening with Ben and Cormac, but in this book Kitty is out of town...more
