Kitty Takes a Holiday (Kitty Norville, Book 3)

Kitty Takes a Holiday - Carrie Vaughn I find that the Kitty series by Carrie Vaughn is a nice little distraction. While the series is not the best UF series out there, I do find that each book has been consistent for me. Kitty’s world includes werewolves, vampires, and other paranormal creatures. I loved how the Native American skin walkers were incorporated into this book.It’s difficult to review this book without giving away a major spoiler, but let’s just say that Kitty spends her time in this book helping out her friends. One of her friends needs to sort through a problem and the other friend has legal issues. We’ll leave it at that. Kitty is on a much needed vacation in a cabin in the mountains. Her show is on a temporary hiatus. Kitty is trying, rather unsuccessfully, to write a book. Peace and quiet never really lasts long in Kitty’s world and soon things start happening. Dead rabbit on the doorstep. Surprise guests with issues. And so the story begins. In this book, we learn more about Cormac and what makes him tick. Cormac’s background is interesting. I did not like the turn the book took with regards to Cormac; I’ll be interested in seeing how it turns out in the next book. Mild mannered Ben. Oh, Ben. I did not expect that at all. Kitty’s transition from weak pack member in the first book to head of her own small pack in this book is awesome. I loved how Kitty became stronger and more assertive in this book. Kitty is truly an Alpha wolf in her own little pack of friends.Kitty’s absence in the late night radio world opened up a spot for an imitator, Ariel. At first, Kitty’s reactions are a little playful, if not spiteful. Kitty’s little prank calls to the show managed to get an interesting reaction from Ariel. As Ariel praised Kitty for starting these types of shows, she reconfirmed that Kitty was her inspiration. I found that while I enjoyed this book parts of it had a Law and Order: Supernatural Division kind of feel. I’ll continue reading this series. I do enjoy Kitty and the company she keeps.
