Kitty knows how to get in trouble! I really enjoyed this installment of the Kitty Norville series. Why? Because the storyline was so different from anything I’ve read! Carrie Vaughn manages to keep this series fresh and interesting, throwing scenarios at Kitty that, even though deal with the same general ideas, are still original.So what’s Kitty’s latest mess? She’s always looking for a way to get some media exposure and she’s being offered to participate in a reality show. Put a few supernaturals in a house with one skeptic human and they are supposed to change his beliefs that they’re all full of shit without doing the obvious (ie shifting).
What starts out as a fun idea changes into a weird situation where some powerful supernaturals are being tested and eventually it turns into a Survivor show. Supernaturals are being killed one by one but by whom, and more importantly why?
And while Kitty is off by herself trying to stay alive, back on the home front Cormac is actually being released from jail. OMG Finally! You know what I realized with this book? Two things really. The first is that Kitty always thinks of Cormac. Constantly. He keeps her alive through this whole ordeal. What would Cormac do? And the second thing is that I have finally come to terms with the fact that Kitty and Ben love each other. Their relationship will never be the passionate, loving relationship I expect to see in the main couple of a series, not even close to the potential that I still could see between Kitty and Cormac, but if we are never to have that, then I might be ok with Ben by her side. He is loyal and he will protect her. He keeps her grounded.
A new storyline is introduced that I’m sure will resurface in future books, and it has to do with the vampires, so I’m very curious to see where this will lead us. And of course I can’t wait to get to the next book, if nothing else because I can get some Cormac in action! Yeah baby!
