Kitty and the midnight hour

Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station - and she also happens to be a werewolf. One night, sick of the usual lame song requests, she accidentally starts 'The Midnight Hour', a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. Almost immediately she's deluged by calls from desperate vampires, werewolves and witches from all across the country, wanting to share their woes and ask her advice. Kitty's new show is a raging success, but it's Kitty herself who could use some help, not least because her monthly change is a deep and dark secret to all but a very special few. And when she finds one very sexy werewolf-hunter on her tail, not to mention a few homicidal undead, she realises she may just may have bitten off more than she can chew ...(bookcover)

This is the first novel in the Kitty Norville serie.

This book is a fun read. And a good first novel. You don't get burried under a lot of information.
Kitty isn't your everage heroine, she maybe a werewolf but not the kickass one you would suspect. No she is just a girl in another kind of world and doen't quite know how to deal with it. Except in her radio show 'The midnight hour' where she gives advice to other supernaturals. And not only that in her show she gets 'discovered' and a lot af people know she is a werewolf and that they and vampires really excist. Which pisses some off. She even gets a werewolfhunter (for hire) after her. And she defenitly has some trouble in the pack. The only thing that gets her trough is her best friend TJ. Their relationship is really great. Just what you expect from best friends. Eventhough they are very different it just makes sense that they are friends.

The ending was quite unexpected for me but I liked it. It makes sure that Kitty gets to have some great new adventures in the big bad world.

I must admit that sometimes I found  the "radio" a bit boring but that was mostly in the beginning. After the story got along it al fit together.

This book is fast written and doesn't linger to much on events and has some great action.
Carrie Vaughn really wrote a great first novel and I for one can't wait to see what happens next to Kitty.

Rating: 4/5
