I wasn't expecting to like this. I've gotten pretty jaded about the entire subgenre of paranormal urban fantasy, full of cliched vampires, airhead and sarcastic heroines who despite being supposedly competent still act like a bad romance TSTL character, bad plotting, and bad characterization with little to no character development. Oh, and the slow (and sometimes not so slow) downward spiral to sexapalooza. I, personally, blame Laurell K. Hamilton.

But I had read some of Vaughn's other, standalone novels and loved them. So I gritted my teeth, crossed my fingers, and checked out the first Kitty book from the library. It was a fast and fun read, and not once did I get the urge to reach into the book and smack the main character upside the head. An intelligent female protagonist, an interesting (though on the light side) plot. I'll be picking up in the second book.
