[Review] - Kitty in the Underworld by Carrie Vaughn

Title: Kitty in the Underworld
Author: Carrie Vaughn
Series: Kitty Norville
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: July 30, 2013

I received this book from Tor/Forge, in exchange for an honest review.

Summary:  As Denver adjusts to a new master vampire, Kitty gets word of an intruder in the Denver werewolf pack’s territory, and she investigates the challenge to her authority. She follows the scent of the lycanthrope through the mountains where she is lured into a trap, tranquilized, and captured.

When she wakes up, she finds herself in a defunct silver mine: the perfect cage for a werewolf. Her captors are a mysterious cult seeking to induct Kitty into their ranks in a ritual they hope will put an end to Dux Bellorum. Though skeptical of their power, even Kitty finds herself struggling to resist joining their cause. Whatever she decides, they expect Kitty to join them in their plot . . . willingly or otherwise

Thoughts: Kitty Norville doesn't necessarily go looking for trouble. But whether she's at home in Denver or traveling, trouble always seems to finds her. This time she is kidnapped and held underground.  Her captures believe she is the Regina Luporm and that she will put an end to the evil vampire Roman.

Trouble does find Kitty and it's not the worst she's been in, but its bad and a bit traumatic. Ms. Vaughn never fails to draw me into Kitty's world with humor and intense situations. Kitty in the Underworld was an engaging story filled with action and suspense. I really liked new character Samira, I hope we get to see more of her. The one thing that frustrates me is the storyline of vampire Roman. It's getting old, kill him already!  That was the only con for me, other wise it was a good read.

Score: 3 Stars

  1. I've only read the first book and that was on audio! I did enjoy it but haven't gone back to the series yet.
