Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station - and she also happens to be a werewolf. One night, sick of the usual lame song requests, she accidentally starts 'The Midnight Hour', a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. Almost immediately she's deluged by calls from desperate vampires, werewolves and witches from all across the country, wanting to share their woes and ask her advice. Kitty's new show is a raging success, but it's Kitty herself who could use some help, not least because her monthly change is a deep and dark secret to all but a very special few. And when she finds one very sexy werewolf-hunter on her tail, not to mention a few homicidal undead, she realises she may just may have bitten off more than she can chew . . .
OK, I admit it, I've come late to Carries writing and to be honest I really don't think that it's a bad thing. Whilst others have been struggling and counting down the days, waiting for each successive story I've managed to just waltz in, sit down and enjoy a day or two of pure book gluttony. As this merry little series has poured through my fingers leaving me with no sense of time. Its been a treat to enjoy the books this way and as such its something I can recommend for others.
Book One, if you'll pardon the pun, throws the reader to the wolves, literally and as such through the careful use of Kitties Radio show allows the reader to get a real feel for the world as a whole with Kitty being the type of character that is the only one really suited to guide you through. Whilst not a combat driven character she does learn to handle herself and generally allows her smart mouth to get her out of trouble (even though 9 times out of 10 it puts her into even hotter water.) Witty, personable and above all a flirt, Kitty is going to become a big star in the Urban Fantasy series and one that I suspect will become the model for many others.

Celebrity werewolf and late-night radio host Kitty Norville prefers to be heard and not seen, but when she's invited to testify at a Senate hearing on behalf of the country's supernaturals, her face gets plastered all over national TV. Before long Kitty's inherited a brand-new set of friends and enemies, including the vampire mistress of the city, an uber-hot Brazilian were-jaguar, and a Bible-thumping senator who plans to expose Kitty as the monster he truly believes her to be. Kitty quickly learns that in this city of dirty politicians and backstabbing pundits, everyone's itching for a fight - and she's about to be caught in the middle.
The Second novel in Carries Supernatural series and one that now that we've been introduced properly in book one, really doesn't pull any punches as the tale unwinds. Elements that were floating round in the first novel come back to haunt this second allowing for a bigger picture as well as allowing us to explore the world further.
Idealistic, entertaining and above all a pleasurable way to burn up sometime I'd recommend that you get a bottle of your favourite drink in as you're going to have a hard time putting this novel down. Great stuff.
