Kitty Goes to War Book Cover

This book doesn’t stray too far from some of the other plot lines in the series.  Kitty is the only one who can save innocent people from being ravaged by X (in this case army soldiers turned into werewolves) but this time she’s got help from Ben and Cormac.  And she’s being sued for libel by the owner of a convenience store chain that seems to be a magnet for the supernatural.

I was hoping this would be related to whatever the vampires have brewing but they take a backseat in this story.  The alpha in the soldiers’ unit is dead and they find it difficult to adjust.  They break out of their treatment facility and Kitty tries to bring them to a point where they can try to balance their wolf and human selves.  In summary, Kitty saves the day, the lawsuit is handled and we’re given a new piece of information about Cormac’s time in prison that’s sure to be needed in the other books in the series.

It was well written but seemed formulaic to me.  At least two more Kitty Norville books are on the way.
