Welcome back to Kitty Norville’s crazy life of supernatural problems. In this novel, Kitty Takes a Holiday, our leading character, Kitty, has run away from the civilized world to the hills to escape the shame she felt after being caught on tape shape shifting in Washington D.C. in Carrie Vaughn’s second novel, Kitty Goes to Washington. Supposedly, Kitty is taking time off to write her memoirs of her tormented times in Washington D.C. but, like all writers, our one true enemy, writer’s block, always strikes when we least want it too.

Once someone’s life and face gets blasted all over a TV even people in small towns know who you are. When Kitty runs for the hills she ends up in a backwater xenophobic hole in the wall town where her Waldenesque get away turns into something out of Evil Dead in one small swoop. From bloody crosses, dead animals and barbwire, Kitty’s life becomes Hell, especially when Cormac brings a bloody Ben O’Farrell to her doorstep infected with Lycanthropy.

Having to deal with a freshly made werewolf pup through his first full moon and trying to figure out who’s trying to scare her off, Kitty’s life just gets more and more complicating. The twists and turns that go through this story leave the reader wanting more. This addition to the Kitty Norville series develops the characters of Cormac and Ben to a more endearing place in the reader’s heart. We also learn more about Skin walkers in this novel as well.

The ending will leave the reader wondering what will happen in the next novel, Kitty and the Silver Bullet, coming out Winter of ’07-’08. Now the ending wasn’t’ what I was expecting but it’s what the ending needed to be. I won’t spoil the story, you’ll have to read it yourself to find out.
