Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station-and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts "The Midnight Hour," a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success. But it's Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew. Download and start listening now!

    " Naming a Werewolf "Kitty" isn't the only unique thing about this book. Unlike a lot of other titles, I was immediately hooked on this title. Kitty starting off with a segment that later turned into her show aka helpline / Frasier Crane-esque radio talk show for supernatural beings is something that would immediately get urban fantasy fans on this title. For those that want some romance in their titles, you might want to wait for subsequent books. Because while I see a possibility of one, there isn't any at this point in the Kitty Norville series One thing that I didn't like though was that the book ended with the antagonist still alive, kicking and seemingly scot free while Kitty (while still alive and not behind any bars) ends the book at a bit of a low point. Listeners/Readers who might be triggered by non-consensual sex might want to pass on this book though. The person wasn't physically forced. But since relationship of the two having sex was unequal in the boss/master/ social "superior" screwing a weaker employee/member because it is the master's "right," it is rape in my vocabulary. All in all, it's an enjoyable series (except for the possible triggering scene of rape) "

    " Definitely grittier and darker than the other urban fantasy books I've read, but it is well conceived, fast-paced, and quite interesting. "

    " fun and way too fast read! "

    " i love this series- but be warned- there is sex and violence in them. Not really intended for teenagers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colette | 11/10/2013

    " Why did it take me so long to pick up this series? I can't wait to get through them all. "

    " Midnight Hour is the name of the Denver talk show hosted by Kitty Norville...werewolf. Fun. Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandi B | 10/5/2013

    " This was a cute book. Short and simple it was much more enjoyable then I had originally thought and flew through it in just under 2 days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thalia | 9/30/2013

    " Kitty, a werewolf, has her own radio show where creatures of the night can call and talk about their problems. But not everybody likes what she does and so someone puts a price on her head. Things in her own pack aren't all good either.[return][return]Pretty entertaining, but I won't bother with the rest in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 9/12/2013

    " Love this book! Has a unique story line - a must read for anyone interested in paranormal books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 2/3/2013

    " My first werewolf book, ever. Again, not something I'd normally pick, but the cover intrigued me. Kitty is a werewolf/nighttime DJ, and is a spunky little character. I'll give the rest of the series a shot if I stumble over it in the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wrennan | 12/16/2012

    " I read this book last year before I really became active on here and because my memory is not the best, I can't really review it - BUT, I do remember I enjoyed it a lot. "

    " I didn't get it. Kitty is a whiny and weak character. The attraction between her and Cormac and is forced and unresolved. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lola | 11/2/2011

    " I quit reading this book, and I really tried to like it. I liked the story but the main character, Kitty wasn't very likable and I did not like reading about her. Sorry I know most of my friends loved this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha Black | 10/5/2011

    " This is one of my favorite series in the supernatural genre. Loved the main character, Kittie. She is very well-drawn and three dimensional. She grows into her strength in the first books in the series; by later books, she is kicking ass with the best of the heroines. Highly recommended series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiah | 9/2/2011

    " At first I didn't think I would like Kitty, but towards the end I really liked her. She took risks, stood up for herself and suffered a loss for it but came out stronger in the end. I am very excited to read the next book to find out what happens to Kitty next. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kerry sullivan | 7/20/2011

    " OK here is the thing I have read lots of books similar to this one and found them much more interesting. I found Kitty needy and annoying. So much so that I was not able to keep reading. Maybe it's me but I won't be reading anymore of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 6/26/2011

    " I've read all the Kitty books, and it's a fun series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandy | 6/17/2011

    " Lots of fun to read, a new twist on the mythical world of werewolves. Also, a Colorado author so all the more fun, and local settings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxanne | 6/15/2011

    " 3.5 Stars

    I enjoyed this book, but the radio stuff kinda got repetitive and boring after a while. I'll read the next one and see how I like it. Not sure I'll read the whole series though if it's based on the radio station. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqui | 5/30/2011

    " Loved this book . Carrie Vaughan creates believable characters really liked Cormac and will add the other books to my to be read list "

    " I wasn't blown away or anything, but I'd say I solidly liked it and am interested enough to finish the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara | 5/18/2011

    " I'm listening this one on audio, which makes it a different experience than just reading the novel. So far I think I like it and there are some funny parts. "
