#39 Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn

My Rating: 7 out of 10 stars

This was a pretty decent start to a new series, and I’m looking forward to reading it’s followup, Kitty Goes to Washington, which I have here in my TBR as well.

Kitty and the Midnight Hour definitely sets up the situation for the sequel, where paranormals are finally recognized by the masses, and the Government releases scientific reports proving their existence. But in this book, most of the population doesn’t yet believe, and both vamps and werewolves remain in the closet, hiding their true identity, and if they cannot do that, hiding from humanity completely.

Kitty’s radio show, The Midnight Hour, which starts off as a fluke phone call taken over the air, becomes tremendously popular and is syndicated around the US. Other paranormals, as well as humans, appreciate Kitty’s show since it allows them to call in with questions, or simply to talk about certain subjects, particularly if it’s something they cannot discuss with their alpha or master. But The Midnight Hour also makes Kitty a target in other ways…
