Review: Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughan

My Review: As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of the werewolf mythology. I just don't get it. While I'm fine with drinking blood, I get uncomfortable with turning into an animal. So I didn't know if I'd like this new series, but I was willing to give it a shot because there's a lot of affection and enthusiasm for werewolves out there.

Kitty is a werewolf, but she doesn't want to lose herself to the wolf completely. She tries to maintain a normal job and only turns when she absolutely has to. But one night on her radio show, she shares some information about the paranormal and her listeners eat it up, giving her more popularity than she's had in ages. She's excited about it, but the her pack leader isn't nor are the local vampires. The pack is everything, Kitty must obey her pack leader for his protection from all that would threaten the werewolves.

I have to admit that I really really enjoyed this book. Kitty's conflict between her wolf and her self was interesting as was her growth within the pack and her own self-confidence. I also could actually understand the appeal of the pack...people/wolves to take care of you and to share your life with. But then again there was lots of other stuff I could have lived without like the alpha wolf having his way with whomever he wanted when he wanted.

All in all, this book was very enjoyable, Kitty is a very likeable character, and I look forward to the rest of the books in the series which are indeed, waiting for me!

Rating: 3.75/5
Things You Might Want to Know: There's some sex, a little language, and a little violence.

I chuckled when you said you're fine with drinking blood but are uncomfortable with turning into an animal because it's just the opposite for me. I know vampires and werewolves are popular right now, but they're not for me.

Darn. I thought I was going to be able to not read this series. I'm reading Patricia Briggs, which I am really enjoying. I might have to give this one a try. Thanks, Amy!

This one sounds alot like Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series. Maybe I'll give it a go. Thanks for the review.
