I started reading this series for the Carrie Vaughn Blog Tour starting on March 25. This will be the first time I’ve join a blog tour. I don’t quite know what to do, so any helpful hints would surely be appreciated. I started reading paranormal book with Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series. Actually, before Kenyon, Linda Lael Miller wrote a trilogy about vampires that I enjoyed. I read a few Madeliene Baker, too. But it wasn’t until Sherrilyn Kenyon that I started looking for paranormal books.
This book opens with Kitty working late at night at a radio station. She started a talk show out of boredom and it became a hit. If you’re a fan of X-Men, then you’ll enjoy this book. I like Kitty because I can relate to her. She stumbled on success and kept it with her talent for making people talk. Wolves typically belong to a pack, and Kitty does too. Except her pack is falling apart.
In this book, were-wolves can change into their animal forms at anytime, but during full moon, it’s compulsory. I find Kitty fascinating because she reminds me a bit of Data from Star Trek, The Next Generation. She’s not an android, but she’s like Data in her quest to make sure her humanity rules her animal form.
When safety becomes an issue, she took some self-defense classes and put it to good use. Kitty is a believable character. I can’t wait to start the next book in this series.
Remember to stay tuned for Carrie Vaughn’s Kitty Norville blog tour starting on March 25.
