Synopses & Reviews
Kitty has been tapped as the keynote speaker for the First International Conference on Paranatural Studies, taking place in London. The conference brings together scientists, activists, protestors, and supernatural beings from all over the world—and Kitty, Ben, and Cormac are right in the middle of it.
Master vampires from dozens of cities have also gathered in London for a conference of their own. With the help of the Master of London, Kitty gets more of a glimpse into the Long Game—a power struggle among vampires that has been going on for centuries—than she ever has before. In her search for answers, Kitty has the help of some old allies, and meets some new ones, such as Caleb, the alpha werewolf of the British Isles. The conference has also attracted some old enemies, whove set their sights on her and her friends.
All the worlds a stage, and Kittys just stepped into the spotlight.
"Kitty Norville, werewolf radio personality, takes her show overseas in her bland 10th adventure (after Kitty's Greatest Hits). She's been asked to speak at the inaugural conference on the supernatural in London, where dozens of influential werewolves and vampires will be in attendance. Kitty's hoping to gain insight into the centuries-spanning Long Game, and find a way to deal with her enemy, the immortal Roman. What she finds is trouble and mayhem around every corner, as she makes new enemies and friends. As Kitty continues to become the accidental spokesperson of the supernatural world, she must prepare for supernatural war. Picking up on the threads from previous books, this installment continues to fiddle with the status quo, with Kitty poised to make an even bigger splash in the future. The solid, entertaining tale primarily serves as part of a larger story, answering some questions and creating more. Agent: Ashley Grayson, Ashley Grayson Literary Agency."

Praise for Carrie Vaughn
“Vaughns trademark sense of humor continues to distinguish this urban fantasy series, and the seamless integration of a variety of paranormal creatures (including vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters) in the everyday world is entertaining…readers new to the Kittyverse will also find a fine introduction to this richly populated, fascinating paranormal world.”
—Library Journal on Kittys Greatest Hits
“What makes Vaughns terrific stories really pop is how she manages to combine outright thrills with an offbeat sense of humor and then mesh it with Kittys dogged determination. The result—entertainment exemplified!”
—RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars Top Pick! on Kittys Big Trouble
“This refreshing froth of light entertainment avoids werewolf dominance clichés and obvious racial stereotypes in favor of communication, action, and adorable old-married-couple sweetness.”
—Publishers Weekly on Kittys Big Trouble
“I relished this book. Enough excitement, astonishment, pathos, and victory to satisfy any reader.”
—Charlaine Harris on Kitty and the Midnight Hour
“The open nature of Kitty's character and the way Vaughn makes her such a likeable character make this the only urban fantasy world where I want to read every book of the series.”
