Kitty's Big Trouble (Kitty Norville #9)
Kitty Norville is back and in more trouble than ever. Her recent run-in with werewolves traumatized by the horrors of war has made her start wondering how long the US government might have been covertly using werewolves in combat. Have any famous names in our own history might have actually been supernatural? She's got suspicions about William Tecumseh Sherman. Then an i

Here's what I like about the Kitty series, including this one. I like the fact that Kitty doesn't get power creeps, unless it is knowledge. The only power she gains is mental and emotional; she is simply a werewolf. I like that. I like the fact that Kitty is married. I like the fact that Kitty questions everything. The books make me laugh...more

“Werewolves are all about instinct, emotion. They’re so full of passion. Makes them fascinating, don’t you think?”
It’s like meeting back up with old friends when a new Kitty book hits the shelves. Whether she likes it or not, Kitty always finds herself in the middle of the action and while she might hope for a nice, quiet life with her husband, Ben, trouble seems to find her (or she it) more often than not. After asking many questions about werewolves th...more
Well we gets into the woo-woo here. And really dorky as well. This one is off in a new direction, gaining new life, I guess. Setting Kitty up for the next stage in her leadership role.
It was a fun and imaginative tour of San Francisco's Chinatown and the touristy parts of the City. Took me right back to all the lovely a...more

This is likely to get a little nebulous, because I'm still trying to put my finger on exactly what I found so disquieting this time. It's not the writing or the characters, which are still just fine. I thi...more
The setting this time is (mostly) in Chinatown, San Francisco, which provides a lot of great opportunity for myth and magic. It also provides the title, since Kitty gets into Big Trouble in ...
The discovery of a werewolf led group of soldiers has caused Kitty to wonder about other potential werewolves in wars and battles throughout history. Thus starts Kitty's quest to discover if General Sherman was a werewolf. Of course, this being Kitty, nothi...more
The Kitty books are always a treat to read, they always have a great arc, great action, and Kitty is just Kitty, always. Kitty is a character we can all relate to in ways we can't w...more
Vaughn's Kitty books since the first one. The books are fast, funny,
full of action and imaginative. And this one fits right in.
In this book, Kitty is attempting to find out if any famous historical
generals were werewolves (specifically Gen. Sherman of Civil War
fame). During her investigation, she gets a call for help from the
vampire Anastasia. Kitty, her husband Ben, and the split human/spirit
Cormac/Amelia head to San Francisco and de...more
But Kitty gets side-tracked in her mission when the vampire Anastasia calls asking for help. She’s in San Francisco and on the hunt for an artefact of extreme power – and she needs to find it befor...more
Overall, I have enjoyed this series. It's not one of my absolute favories, but I find the characters & radio show premise interesting enough. As with many series, there are some books that you like better than others. Some you love and some that are just "meh." This one falls into the latter category for me. It seemed a bit lackluster/ felt like it was missing something to me. I'm not sure exactly what or why. Not sure if it was the story, its...more
But, instead, let's go back to the beginning. In the last book, KITTY GOES TO WAR, she learned about the U.S. government's use of werewolves in combat, and she asked herself: how long have they been doing it, and who else in U.S. history could have been hiding their own sup...more

I think maybe it was that Kitty, Ben, and Cormac didn't so much help advance the story as they were just carried along in its current, as though the story cou...more
We begin with Kitty's most recent hobby--trying to out historical figures as weres or vampires or whatever. Which is a lot of fun, and is a well Vaughn hopefully returns to.
But the main action focuses on the Long Game between various vampire factions that we've seen a few peaks into lately. Kitty's ally Anastasia is racing against Roman for possession of a magical artifact th...more

After reading Eight Kitty Norville books I really thought I would have gotten to know all there is about Kitty but she still manages to entertain me and surprise me at every turn with her humor, strength and devotion to her pack. One of the best things about the series in my opinion is that the series has a long running plot but it is also its own book that has its own events that are resolved by the end of each book. Does that make sense? I li...more
