Kitty's House of Horrors (Kitty Norville #7)
In the seventh entry in Carrie Vaughn's bestselling Kitty Norville series, a publicity stunt turns into a fight for the popular radio talk show host's life.
Talk radio host and werewolf Kitty Norville has agreed to appear on TV's first all-supernatural reality show. She's expecting cheesy competitions and manufactured drama starring shapeshifters, vampires, and psychics. Bu...more
More lists with this book...
Sadly i'm going to put these down until the last book comes out later in the year. I read half now and I'll read the next half starting the first week in August. I cannot wait! I'm so fucking happy I found an UF series to be obsessed with.
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
I felt the first death as much as Kitty, it was shocking and saddening. We were just getting to like his character. ...more

The first part where they are all settling in for the show was funny because I could totally see Kitty bopping around the cabin talking to everyone as her curiosity gets the better of her. It see ...more
The "show" itself was a bunch of magical or paranormal individuals trying to convince the consummate skeptic that this is all real. The twist being the producers are gun c ...more
This was sort of reminiscent of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, of course this one had supernatural creatures and a mouthy radio DJ. I was a little sad that Cormac still had no real appearance, but I'm still hopeful to see h ...more
It might have even helped Kitty and company out there in Montana if they'd have had Curveball on their team.
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
#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
It's a story that reminds me of The Most Dangerous Game in where humans were considered the ultimate prey. Now consider humans with supernatural abilities all gath ...more
Kitty somewhat reluctantly agrees to do a reality show that reunites her (and us) with some of the interesting characters from previous installments of her tale. Vaughn provides foreshadowing of the battle to come, and keeps the pace flowing and tension building until the finale. That finale will also make you eager to grab the next story in the series.
The characters are solid, and Kitty has her usual charm ...more
I have been impressed with how consistent the quality of the writing in the series has been, even as the author manages to introduce new characters and a significant amount of character development. The Kitty series still remains a go ...more
Kitty is my hero. She's such a kick-ass character and I never tire of her fighting ability. I look ...more
Sadly, some of the good guys died just as we were getting to know them, others were injured and of course, the bad guys bought it. Plenty of action to keep everyone happy.
In the background but just as important is the talk of a coming war. And Kitty picks up some useful allies along the way.
A big plus for the next book is Cormac :D
Kitty goes on a reality show and find out there's a whole different show than she thought in mind. Super sad book, I kept going "NO!!" That's one thing about these books, they don't have HEA (happy ever afters) or if they do, they're just barely. That's one thing that I don't require in my books so I can enjoy them either way. I love this series.
Wowza! This book couldn't be more appropriately named. Horrors is right (not in the scary reading sense, but the devastating one). Geez, that was a rough ride, in all the best ways.
With Kitty's House of Horrors Carrie Vaughn went places I didn't think she would go - I was pretty shocked and now I know that moving forward in the series she's not going to pull punches. Kinda makes me nervous because I may just get my heart ripped out and stomped ...more
At first it seemed as though this was just going to be some kind of blast from the past reunion outing for the radio-talk-show-host/werewolf and her friends but it turned out to be something a bit grimmer.
This story returns to the strengths of the very first novel in this series, the idea that monsters (if they exist) aren't all evil and that in most cases it is normal people who are just as, if not more, capable of evil. Delving int ...more
