Kitty Takes a Holidayby Carrie Vaughn
Synopses & Reviews
After getting caught turning wolf on national television, Kitty retreats to a mountain cabin to recover and write her memoirs. But this is Kitty, so trouble is never far behind, and instead of Walden Pond, she gets Evil Dead. When werewolf hunter Cormac shows up with an injured Ben O'Farrell, Kitty's lawyer, slung over his shoulder, and a wolf-like creature with glowing red eyes starts sniffing around the cabin, Kitty wonders if any of them will get out of these woods alive...
"Having established a successful radio show, revealed herself to the nation as a werewolf and testified in Senate hearings on the supernatural, Vaughn's plucky series heroine, Kitty Norville, is ready to lay low in a remote Colorado cabin and work on her memoirs. Her plans get derailed when werewolf hunter Cormac Bennett shows up at Kitty's hideaway with her lawyer, Ben O'Farrell, who has been bitten — and infected — by a werewolf. Soon after Kitty takes them in, hoping to help Ben adjust to his new predicament, she discovers gruesome animal sacrifices at her door. It becomes apparent that a malevolent force is staking out the cabin, targeting one of them, and Cormac's hunt for it takes them all in some unexpected directions. Kitty's matter-of-fact voice continues to mine the horror and romantic material for laughs — especially in her prank calls to a rival DJ — and Vaughn's universe is convincing and imaginative, providing enough series mythology to satisfy without slowing down the narrative." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
In Vaughn's third novel about a radio talk show host who happens to be a werewolf, Kitty retreats to a mountain cabin after turning into a wolf on national television. Instead of being a Walden Pond-like place, the woods are more like something out of the "Evil Dead" for Kitty and her companions. Original.
