Werewolves, vampires and other supernatural beasties...
After reading the first book in this series, Kitty and The Midnight Hour, I wasn't really wasn't sure what to make of the series.
I didn't like the pack dynamics, I didn't like that it took so long for Kitty to grow a backbone and the ending was kinda sad but I was intrigued enough to continue so here we are!
I'm pleased to say that I liked book two more than book one but I still didn't love it.
Kitty has broken from her pack and has had to basically take The Midnight Hour on a tour of affiliated radio stations or be killed for staying in Denver.
Being 'out' as a werewolf and a pseudo-celebrity because of her radio show, Kitty is summoned to give evidence at a government committee on supernatural beasties in Washington DC.
Naturally, chaos and supernatural hijinks ensue as well as unethical escapades from politicians, scientists and journalists all working their own selfish angles with Kitty stuck in the middle.
I liked Kitty a lot more in this book.
She's grown a bit more of a backbone and she's just trying to live her life. We meet some Washington vampires, Kitty's lawyer Ben is more prominent and Cormac - a werewolf hunter and Kitty's friend - plays a welcome part, and I liked seeing Kitty's building relationship with them all.
We meet other were animals and they show Kitty that there is another way of living. That weres can live without packs and that a pack doesn't mean abuse and I'm very I'm curious as to what Kitty ultimately does with that revelation for she's got to return to Denver at some point, right?
I think the reason that the book was still only a 3-Star read for me was that even though there were lots going on I felt like nothing was happening. I was kinda bored. Too much page time was given to characters or events that served no purpose other than a momentary distraction.
However, once again, I find myself in the position of wanting to read more. So I will definitely be reading book three.
The jaguar kinda threw me. He's a bit part really so I have no idea why he gets a place on the cover but ok...
