Mini Review: Kitty Goes to War by Carrie Vaughn

10 Feb

Publisher: Tor Books
Released: June 29, 2010
Genre: Adult urban fantasy

Kitty Norville, Alpha werewolf and host of The Midnight Hour, a radio call-in show, is contacted by a friend at the NIH’s Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology. Three Army soldiers recently returned from the war in Afghanistan are being held at Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs. They’re killer werewolves—and post traumatic stress has left them unable to control their shape-shifting and unable to interact with people. Kitty agrees to see them, hoping to help by bringing them into her pack.

Meanwhile, Kitty gets sued for libel by CEO Harold Franklin after featuring Speedy Mart–his nationwide chain of 24-hour convenience stores with a reputation for attracting supernatural unpleasantness–on her show.

Very bad weather is on the horizon.

I love this series. In fact, I’d have to say it was one of my fave adult urban fantasy series. Kitty is just a kick-ass heroine. Even though she’s been alpha for some time now, she still worries about whether or not she’s capable of doing the job.

These books never disappoint me. Ever. I know I can always count on Vaughn to give me an action-packed, well thought out urban fantasy novel, and Kitty Goes to War is no different.

I loved how the two main plots – the war vets and the Speedy Mart case – balance each other out nicely. While the Speedy Mart plot was serious, it was much lighter than the post-traumatic soldier werewolves. Oh, and can I just say how much I LOVE having Cormac back in the thick of things? And the fact that he’s been dealing with his own supernatural stuff was a great twist and should play out nicely in the next few books.

Kitty Goes to War was just a great all around read and I can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out.
