    One thought on “Kitty and the Midnight Hour”

    1. If you hate special snowflakes who are always so good at everything, and so strong, and have awesome powers If you want to read a story where the hero is a weak, submissive, powerless lackey If you are tired of reading shifter books about the alpha who is noble, strong, and kind And, maybe, for once, you would like to read the story of the loser of a werewolf packHave I ever found the book for you Kitty sucks She is a complete coward who is constantly whining literally like a dog whines , coweri [...]

    2. This was an interesting read that takes a different path for the urban fantasy heroine Kitty is not the usual kickbutt heroine who can handle whatever life throws at her She s a regular girl, who happens to be a werewolf I found that intensely refreshing.Kitty is the wolf of lowest status in her pack and complete submissive when the story starts She has to come into her own and into the realization that she can make it on her own, and that she doesn t need the pack so much that she can deny her [...]

    3. Thoughts from before I finished the book Only 3 chapters in and I am slightly disgusted All the reviews here talk about this story being a coming to story for Kitty, a woman traumatized and learning to stand on her own again Seriously though the way she is treated within the pack is just as emotional and mentally abusive as the half ripping her to shreds to make her a were in the first place In the name of protection she cannot even go out by herself, has to fork over half of her money to keep h [...]

    4. 3.5 starsKitty isn t the typical urban fantasy heroine when she starts out but I like she s not fake She s in an abusive pack relationship but doesn t realize it for awhile, and the way she was turned into a werewolf was abuse again She has no one other than her pack, who she seeks for comfort, until she finds her own with a paranormal themed late night radio show that takes off across the coast.The radio station stuff was actually riveting from funny callers, especially when they try to hook he [...]

    5. Kitty Norville pleasantly surprised me with it s unique radio talk show segments and intriguing heroine Unlike most other heroines in PNR UF series, Kitty is at the bottom of her pack and she s the meek one who needs the protection of others Her radio talk show about supernatural beings suddenly takes off, and intrinsically she finds herself wanting to break out on her own and lead the pack.The whole pack mentality was interesting in this one Even as humans, the Alpha can do whatever he wants wi [...]

    6. Maybe it s because I have a weakness for advice columns, but I freaking LOVED this Wait, no, it s because it was perfectly paced, had a fresh voice despite the fact it s a few years old now , and made me want to cry several times with the power of its characterization Yeah, that s probably it How did I miss this series for so many years ETA Well, certainly disagrees with me I found this because various recommendation engines said I d like it, not because any review of it caught my eye I m thankf [...]

    7. Good, quick, fun UF with an uncomfortable abusive element Didn t really wrap up all loose ends and the ending came and went in a blink but I really enjoyed it.

    8. What fun Kitty is a werewolf DJ who runs a late night radio program When she starts talking about the possibility that there are real vampires, weres, etc out there, her program suddenly starts to gain listeners and attention, not all of it good Then, when she discloses that she is a werewolf, everything busts loose Her pack leader is unhappy, the head of the local vampire collective forbids her to continue, a hunter has a contract for her life, and someone out there is killing people like a wer [...]

    9. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 I must confess that I have not read this series in order I ve been picking up the books at used book sales and using them in challenges whenever possible Having read Kitty and the Dead Man s Hand book 5 first, I was really surprised by the reviews of this book Surely it could not be about the same series I kept hearing about Kitty being very submissive, almost nauseatingly so Certainly this was not the Kitty in the later books When I finally got to read this book, I cou [...]

    10. Not sure how I feel about this series It lagged in places but was super interesting in others I think I will read the next book before I decide fully on it.

    11. Updated 10 8 12My review is a cautionary tale If one listens to a book on tape and hates it, but it s something they expected to like, always give the print edition a try Here is my review after I tried to read this book for the first time I listened to the first couple of chapters on cd, and it was so bad I had to stop even though I still had a hundred miles to drive with nothing on the radio Since then I ve realized that a bad narrator can ruin an audiobook so I think I m going to try to read [...]

    12. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsTTY NORVILLE and I first met back in 2010 when I started my blog at the time I found the heroine rather spineless, and I didn t particularly care for Carrie Vaughn s werewolves I forged on to book 2, didn t see much improvement, and decided to call it quits Now, five years later, the series has concluded, and I ve decided to give it another chance in audio Marguerite Gavin s narration caused me to bump my original rating up by a star, and my second impression kinda left me [...]

    13. This was a cool book idea, but the weak protagonist and horrible gender dynamics completely ruin it There are plenty of ways to write werewolves Why, why, why did this female author choose to write hers in a way that justifies the main character s repeated rape This is not okay Seriously Take out the werewolf aspect of this book and you are left with a story about a woman being abused and repeatedly raped by a man who is treating other women the same way oh, and taking half of their earnings Thi [...]

    14. I listened to the narration of Kitty and the Midnight Hour I was expecting to not be impressed and walk away from this series believing it was just another take on an overdone theme After all, the series is about werewolves and vampires hasn t this theme been done before But I was pleasantly surprised with Kitty and I plan to continue on to the next book sometime But I won t be rushing to read it or listen to it Kitty is the main character and I liked her well enough Kitty is not like Mercy, Ele [...]

    15. Short version I wish that I could say that I loved this book from start to finish, but I can t I was frustrated with Kitty s weakness for much of the book, and it was only toward the end that I started to really get her That s not to say that it was a bad book it wasn t or that I hated it until the end I didn t , it s just that I m a character reader, and I need characters to make sense Unfortunately, to me, the characters and the paranormal hierarchy just didn t make sense until close to the en [...]

    16. I don t like werewolves as much as I like vampires And I don t like vampires all that much This is some kind of fictional monster prejudice of mine, and I m a little ashamed of it and would welcome a twelve step program to help me overcome it For now, though, I prefer my monsters with a veneer of civility And while Ceridwen makes a good point about having sex with vampires, the whole transforming into a dog and then having sex thing is not much better Despite these reservations, however, I tried [...]

    17. I am generally not a huge fan of post Buffy urban fantasy, particularly the hot chicks in leather genre The only reason I decided to try the first book in the popular Kitty Norville series is that I ve heard good things about the author, Carrie Vaughn, and also it was on sale on Audible.Well, Kitty and the Midnight Hour is well written and not as schlocky as I feared, but it did not change my mind about the genre, nor am I likely to continue following the series I found the story entertaining mi [...]

    18. Kitty is a werewolf who hosts The Midnight Hour, a late night radio program aimed at supernatural creatures Every night she encounters her share of crazies, most of them are harmless, but one of them is a rogue who has started killing vulnerable women on the streets of Denver With the police unable to deal with it, it s up to Kitty, with a little help from an assassin sent to kill her, to track down the rogue.This book is a lot of fun It s probably not going to win any awards but it s great fun [...]

    19. This is a pretty good story But it s far from the best I ve ever read The plot itself is really good and it was definitely enough to keep me turning the pages But the characters on the other hand In a word Terrible Kitty for starters was a wimp, the girl s a freaking werewolf And what does she do when provoked or challenged Instead of fighting and sticking up for herself, she just inwardly whimpers and whines and externally looks all cowed and scared and subservient And she lets the guy who s he [...]

    20. The first 35 pages or so made me want to put the book down and never return Maybe I m spoiled by such strong female leads like Patricia Briggs Mercy Thomspon, and karen Marie Moning s Mac Lane I about gagged when Kitty cowered and whimpered in front of her alpha and then let him screw her the next morning Mind you he has a mate He reminds me of the alpha in Briggs Alpha and Omega series The one who was taking his pack s money, and let Anna be used as a plaything to keep his crazy mate sanery sim [...]

    21. SPOILERS ahead.I remember reading, or trying to read, this book a while back, but I forget exactly when so I ll set the date to today In any case, what I do remember with perfect clarity is that it made me sick I don t even know what I was doing picking up a book about werewolves I dislike them as supernatural characters and only love a couple of select series that feature them Here s what I remember from the 100 something pages I read Kitty is a werewolf She s been bitten against her consent by [...]

    22. I really wanted to like this book, and I do think that the writer s style is accessible and it s possible that I d like a different book from her, but I only managed to get a third of the way through this before I had to stop.First, I didn t feel like the characters were really developed, and while they should have been interesting, they were just a little too two dimensional for me to connect with I find the pack dynamics in this to be fairly disgusting and rape y since the pack leader can and [...]

    23. I have read two books from this series, and i can say i hate it It annoyed me beyond reason.In the first book our Kitty is for a lack of a better description a floor mat for her pack and her alpha, doing whatever she is told no matter how degrading it is just to scrape some attention from her pack master You get the idea in the beginning of the book that she is emotionally crippled and doesn t know just how pathetic her certain actions really are Then in the same book you have Kitty the DJ, host [...]

    24. Oh my old timers I thought I had this book, but couldn t find it For some reason I d collected the next 4, but didn t have the first, which was weird I hadn t realized I read it Well, I m going to re read it then read the others that I have I guess it wasn t particularly memorable.I barely got into it remembered it fairly well I blame my lack of memory on me reading dozens of similar books over the past few years It was fun On to the next From 27Oct08 The book started off slow for me, but was re [...]

    25. I been wanting to read this for a while now And finally saw this at the bookstore So as I was reading it, I found I liked Kitty at times And there was moments where I wasn t so sure It didn t stop me from liking the story Well maybe a tiny bit I mean Carl I didn t like.I did like the friendship between her and T.J And the pacing was good The radio bits were the best parts as well Near the end I didn t expect to go in that direction.Or maybe it had to do with me going in not hearing much about th [...]

    26. When I read the first book of a long series I m not looking for perfection I m looking to be drawn in Kitty and the Midnight Hour does just that.Kick ass heroines are a time honored trope in urban fantasy and Kitty is not one of them She s at the bottom of the supernatural pecking order and it s refreshing I m used to seeing pack politics from the top down, but here we get a look from the bottom up What is life like for the weakest members of a pack What is it like to be the protected instead of [...]

    27. This isn t my favorite world building setup with vampires werewolves, etc but I did like the radio show aspect I ll try another book in the series and see if the world grows on me.

    28. This was one of those half assed Pardon me stories where being the protagonist is all it takes to justify your actions First off I started this book after reading the synopsis Kitty Norville is a midnight shift DJ for a Denver radio station and a werewolf in the closet.The term DJ and werewolf caught my attention I ve read so many shape shifters stories and I m still caught in it s thrall But if you re picking up this book because of that very factor I don t think it s worth your time.Now moving [...]

    29. Kitty Norville is a twenty something girl with past guy issues, a distant relationship with her mother, and no female friends In the course of living her everyday life, she somehow manages to threaten the bad guys and earn the attention respect of the good guys And, oh yeah these guys are sexy, and Kitty likes to wear sweats grungy jeans Sound familiar Of course it does Kitty and the Midnight Hour is not that different from so many other UF novels on the shelves right now Although I didn t despi [...]
