Kitty and the midnight hour
Carrie Vaughn
Adult Fiction VAUGHN

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Vaughn's entertaining fantasy debut introduces Kitty Norville, a closeted werewolf who hosts a popular Denver radio program called The Midnight Hour. During her show, Kitty takes phone calls from listeners (not all of whom are human) while trying to maintain her secret identity. Unfortunately, the local vampire crime family wants her show canceled and has hired someone to kill her. In fact, it's during the course of Kitty's dramatic on-air conversation with her would-be assassin that she reveals to listeners that she is, indeed, a werewolf. Eventually, local police enlist her to help track down a serial killer who exhibits werewolflike tendencies. While Kitty's occasional neediness, snide tone and attempts at werewolf wit can grate, this remains a surprisingly human tale. Blurbs from Charlaine Harris and L.A. Banks will cue their readers.

From Library Journal:

Kitty Norville has a late-night radio show in Denver. One evening, she takes a call from someone who asks, "Do you believe in vampires?" As it turns out, she does. She even knows a few undead, plus an even larger number of werewolves (in fact, she herself is one). Thus is born Kitty's new hit program, The Midnight Hour, where those who believe in or belong to the paranormal community call in to discuss their problems. It's not long before Kitty faces threats from vampires and werewolves who would rather not have their existence aired publicly. Kitty is a lively, engaging heroine with a strong independent streak and, usually but not always, enough sense to know when to cut her losses. This fast-paced debut novel is the first in what should prove a very popular series. Recommended.-Patricia Altner, Information Seekers, Columbia, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
