Kitty Rocks the House (Kitty Norville)

Kitty Rocks the House (Kitty Norville) - Carrie Vaughn This book is #11 in the Kitty series, but I do think you could read this one and not be too lost. Of course, you would miss Kitty's transformation from bottom of the pack to alpha wolf as well as all her adventures while coping with lycanthropy. So, even if you did read out of order, I do suggest you go back and witness her character growth. You would not be disappointed.

In this book we get a bit more of a glimpse of the "long game", the war that is brewing within the paranormal community. It's also a book about odd allies and knowing who to trust and how to handle things so you don't burn bridges when you might need the help in the end. No, the war hasn't come yet, but all indications tell us that it is coming and even if it takes a couple more books, it is on the horizon.

Although this book is leading up to a war, it really is more of a character book for Kitty. It's more about how she balances her wolf, responsibilities to the pack and family as well as work and gathering allies. I can see why the book was dedicated to these things. If it was packed into another book, it would have been too much. Still, there is adventure to keep us interested and invested in Kitty and Ben (who I just love together!).

I give this book 4 stars. It's a book that should not be missed. I also recommend this series for anyone who enjoys UF genre as well as a strong, intelligent female heroine.
