But even in the small Colorado mountain town something or someone is stalking Kitty. Kitty thinks it is just a prank but so discovers its a curse. Then with out warning Cormac shows up on Kitty's doorstep with her lawyer Ben seriously injured. Now Kitty has a curse, an injured lawyer, Cormac and evil is right outside her door. It’s just another day in the life of Kitty Norville.
This book is another exciting adventure featuring celebrity were-wolf Kitty Norville. It is darker and more sinister than the 1st 2 books, Kitty and the Midnight Hour and Kitty Goes to Washington but it sucks you in fast and your left running to the nearest bookstore or library begging for more Kitty. At first I was upset about Carrie Vaughn throwing Ben and Kitty together in a relationship. I was secretly hoping Kitty and Cormac would hook up but Vaughn was right Ben and Kitty work really well together. Kitty and Cormac would have been like fireworks pretty, colorful and bound to blow up. (less)

Someone described this book as Alice in Wonderland meets Stephan King. I cant thing of a better description. I am not a fan of fantasy books but this one really sucked me in to the plot quickly and I ended up staying up late to finish it. To anyone who is a fan of fantasy I highly recommend. (less)

I am not sure I like this series. I may read the 2nd book in the series before I write off the entire series.

But in a world where literary characters can leave books and you can enter the book and change the ending how is ever going to find someone that can change their appearance.
It took me awhile to get into the characters of this book. But once I did I really enjoyed all the sly literary references. Before reading I suggest you bone up on English literature or you might just miss have the fun.(less)
