Review: Kitty and the Midnight Hour (Kitty Norville, #1) by Carrie Vaughn

Kitty and the Midnight Hour

Paranormal Romance – Urban Fantasy
Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station – and a werewolf in the closet. Her new late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged is a raging success, but it’s Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew?

~ 2.5 Stars ~ 

I enjoyed Kitty and the Midnight Hour, thou it had it’s down sides to it as well. I hope the character Kitty grows up more in the series, for she does seam to have potentinal and from what I see the series did take off. 

The plot was interesting with assassins, fake faith healers peddling a cure, disappearing vampires and the revaluation that supernaturals do exist in the world. The beginning of the book I was a little disgusted with the characters. The end though totally suppressed and annoyed me. 

I liked the radio talk show aspect and Kitty’s personality on the air, but off the air she has/had issues. Though Kitty does grow up some and realizes some key things about herself and the pack. 

I did not like the third person talk when in wolf form. It was interesting, but did not work so much for me. I also did not like the pack and it’s mentality. I hope all pack’s in this series are not like that. I’m a little spooled with Patricia Briggs & Terry Spears werewolf’s.
All and all this was an ok read! I hope the next book in the series is an improvement. I will give it a try!

I had a hard time with this one too. I never went on to the rest of the series but do eventually plan on trying the next one. The Pack from what I remember (this has been a few years now) really bothered me. But like you I’m used to Patricia Briggs and Shelly Laurenston and others like them who have amazing Packs.

Ya I’m spoiled with Packs. I <3 Patricia Briggs and Shelly Laurenston. It’s so hard not to compare Packs to them when reading a new book series.

It’s been a while, but I don’t remember being too impressed with this one either. I do recall the series getting better, but I honestly don’t know if it was b/c it truly got better, or if I was bored enough that I didn’t care, lol. Here’s hoping it actually got better! Great review 🙂

Thanks Jessica for stoping bye. I’m hopping it gets better. Lots of people like it and well its got a lot of books out. The only thing I enjoy about it so far is the radio aspect and that’s not much to enjoy a book on.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
