For once the government needs intrepid werewolf heroine Kitty’s help. Vaughn takes on PTSD and gives it a new twist in the latest Kitty adventure. Cormac also makes a welcome return, adding even more things to worry about in Kitty’s already very complicated life. Vaughn’s deft touch at characterization and plot development has made this series hugely entertaining and not to be missed!

Life is never dull for Kitty Norville, and this week is no exception. Not only has Kitty gotten sued by the CEO of Speedy-Mart for suggesting there is something strange going on at the chain, she has also been asked by the government for help with some soldiers. A squad of werewolves were working in Afghanistan, but when the alpha was killed, the pack fell apart and now killings have begun. Kitty hopes to find a way to help the survivors. Speaking of survivors, Cormac is now out of jail and restarting his life. But Kitty and her husband Ben are concerned, for Cormac seems a little different. Cormac, however, agrees to help them check into the Speedy-Mart situation, but it looks like there’s bad weather ahead! (TOR, Jul., 352 pp., $7.99)

Kitty Goes To War - Another Great Kitty Novel

Submitted by mlacroix on September 1, 2010 - 6:02pm.

Kitty Norville seems to always find trouble, or trouble always finds Kitty. This time the U. S. Army calls Kitty in, because they have a problem they can't handle. It seems that one of their Special Forces officers made a team of werewolves and now that officer is dead and the werewolves are on the loose somewhere near Denver. When they capture the men, instead of killing the men Kitty asks to rehabilitate the two sane men. But more trouble is following Kitty. It seems she angered the CEO of Speedy Mart and he's out for vengeance. Not only that but Cormac is out of prison and acting weird. Weirder than what is normal for Cormac.

I couldn't put this book down. Just think of it a whole army full of werewolves. I'm glad that Cormac is back in the picture I sure missed his two cents of insanity. Those of us who love Kitty and her band of misfits hope there is another Kitty novel in the works.
