About this book
The final installment of the bestselling Kitty Norville series showcases the paranormal escapades of Carrie Vaughn’s fan-favorite werewolf talk-show host. This engaging short fiction collection - with its own soundtrack for each tale - is sure to delight both existing Kitty fans and anyone who enjoys urban fantasy at its grittiest and best.
“The only urban fantasy world where I want to read every book of the series.” -The Denver Post
“Enough excitement, astonishment, pathos, and victory to satisfy any reader.” -Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse series
Kitty Norville still can’t stay away from trouble of the supernatural kind.
Everyone’s favorite werewolf DJ is here to mix it up just one last time. Here you will find, or even newly discover, the irrepressible Kitty Norville with friends and enemies alike: Rick the vampire; Jessi Hardin, paranormal detective; Kitty’s husband Ben; Cormac, the bounty hunter; and the villainous Dux Bellorum. These irresistible tales are full of unpredictable twists and turns: lupines experimenting with astronomy, a cheating boxer with preternatural strength, vampires arriving from the Philippines.
As a special treat, author Carrie Vaughn (Bannerless) has provided her own selections for a mix-tape: story notes and songs dedicated to each tale.
So whatever you do, don't miss Kitty before she is gone. . . .
3.5ish stars. Not really a urban fantasy at its grittiest and best.
Kitty Norville is a werewolf radio disk jockey who is, in my mind at least, kind of like Mercy Thompson’s and Kate Daniels’ less well-known little sister, which is a little unfair to Kitty since her first book predates both of the others’. But they all inhabit comparable urban fantasy worlds with werewolves, vampires and other magical goings-on. Kitty’s world just never grabbed me quite as much as the others.
