#24 Kitty Goes to Washington by Carrie Vaughn

My Rating: 9 out of 10 stars

A terrific read! I liked this one even better than Kitty and the Midnight Hour, the first in the series.

Kitty runs a late-night talk radio show called The Midnight Hour. Up until now, many humans still believe her show is some kind of spoof; they simply can't bring themselves to believe supernatural creatures like vampires, werewolves, and other shapeshifters actually exist. However, having become somewhat of a celebrity now, and kind of a resident expert, Kitty's called upon by the Senate to testify at a hearing which would bring the supernaturals to light and be legally recognized by the government

But her trip to D.C. has brought her face-to-face with a number of other interesting characters, some of them seeming quite friendly, like a ├╝ber-hot Brazilian were-jaguar *roaw* and the vampire mistress of the city, and others not quite so. And as a dirty politician and a sketchy doctor set her up to take a major fall, help comes from unexpected places.

But this is Kitty! As much as she'd normally like to stay in the background, and her wolf rather hide than fight, her determination not to pushed around anymore gives her the strength to overcome anything which comes her way! Kitty is definitely a friend every girl would love to have: a soft lovable side, combined with a strong and determined determined tough side. I eagerly await the next in the series!
