KITTY STEALS THE SHOW
As a character and heroine, Kitty Norville has come a long way, baby! In this latest installment, she’s landed the role of keynote speaker at the First International Conference on Paranatural Studies. Words can be weapons and, through luck or design, Kitty is a master at wielding them. Perennial favorite Vaughn is kicking up the conflict and laying out more clues in her overarching Long Game storyline. Go, Kitty, go!
Kitty’s unquenchable curiosity goes into overdrive when she, Ben and Cormac head to London for the supernatural conference. With so many supes in one place, Kitty plans to shake the bushes and see what she can find out about ancient vampire Roman’s “Long Game.” With the help of Ned, the Master vampire of London, Kitty gets her first glimpse into vampire politics and oppressive traditions. Never one to keep her mouth shut about injustice, Kitty does what she does best: stir up trouble. But will the fallout hurt her friends? (TOR, Aug., 352 pp., $7.99)
