Kitty Norville #2
3 out of 5 stars
Kitty Norville is a character that a lot of people seem to have a problem relating to, at least in the beginning of the series. To a point, it’s understandable. She’s a werewolf but not the bad ass she-wolf everyone is used to in virtually every urban fantasy werewolf story. She’s kind of a coward and rolls over easily. She’s jumpy like a cat instead of a fearsome predator. These attributes are actually why I keep reading. It’s a change from your usual she-kicks-all-the-ass-immediately-and-no-one-can-step-to-her urban fantasy trope.
This is the second book in the series and she’s slowly growing a little more backbone. She has been requested to speak in front of a committee in Washington D.C. on the behalf of vampires and werewolves. Creatures that were recently brought to public light. A scientist has been doing research on the virus’ that cause these different states of life and wants to continue to receive funding from the government to do so. As with all politics, there are others who hope to prove that vampires and werewolves should be exterminated. They are an affront to God. And yet others, who wish to use werewolves in the military as super soldiers.
Because Kitty is good at getting into trouble, she just might become a science experiment herself if she’s not careful.
Overall this series is okay. I keep reading because of the different type of heroine. The writing isn’t particularly strong but the action is interesting enough to see where this goes in the next installment of the series.
