Kitty Raises Hell

Kitty knows something from Las Vegas has followed her home to Denver.  It smells of brimstone, uses fire and seems to have hands although she can’t see them.  This apparent demon begins widening its circle of destruction from Kitty to her pack and eventually the streets of Denver.  Along the way, Kitty becomes involved with the paranormal investigators from the reality tv show Paradox PI, has the younger brother of her best friend TJ show up on  her doorstep with a lot of uncomfortable questions and has a mysterious vampire appear who claims to be able to rid Denver of the demon.  The vampire’s price is free passage in Denver which immediately gives Rick, Denver’s Master vampire, pause.

This book is likely one of the first of many showdowns Kitty will experience during The Long Game.  Because vampires live for so long they make strategic decisions that will place themselves where they want to be in hundreds of years.  They have all the time in the world while other supernatural beings have less time.  With each adventure that befalls her, Kitty is gathering recruits for a great battle and she probably doesn’t even realize it.  Heck, Carrie Vaughn may not completely realize it yet but I suspect she does.  🙂  This is one author who has her act together.

One of thing I admire about Kitty is her confidence which has grown since the series began.  She has her moments of doubt but she trusts herself.  Kitty’s thought processes are sound – she can recognize when a decision is based on fact or emotion but also trusts her instincts.  One of those instincts is often knowing who she can trust and how far to trust them.

Kitty Raises Hell provides the first chapter to Kitty’s House of Horrors, the next Kitty Norville adventure which left my mouth watering for more.  I’m sure it will be worth the wait.
