I have a confession to make… I marked Kitty Rocks the House 5 stars, jotted a couple notes and rushed on to read the next book. Which I devoured in a day, without pausing to write this review. Oops. But that says something right? The ending was so darn good, I couldn’t wait long enough to even write a review!
On the heels of Kitty's return from London, a new werewolf shows up in Denver, one who threatens to split the pack by challenging Kitty's authority at every turn. The timing could not be worse; Kitty needs all the allies she can muster to go against the ancient vampire, Roman, if she's to have any hope of defeating his Long Game. But there's more to this intruder than there seems, and Kitty must uncover the truth, fast. Meanwhile, Cormac pursues an unknown entity wreaking havoc across Denver; and a vampire from the Order of St. Lazaurus tempts Rick with the means to transform his life forever.
So, for the obvious above reason, this review will be on the short side… But let me tell you what I remember loving, thanks to notes I did the the time to right. Phew!
The werewolf that showed up trying to join Kitty and Ben’s pack was a great twist to the storyline. You can’t help but wonder if what’s going on has something to do with the long game or is just plain old werewolf pack stuff. And it doesn’t help you sort your emotions that you kinda like the guy, yet hate him too. All kinds of emotions there. And seeing the kind of alpha k\Kitty has become – how far she’s come – was almost a tear jerker moment for me.
Cormick – yeah, I’m finally loving this new version. He’s finally coming into his own with Amelia and it’s actually kinda fun to see him pushing back against Kitty’s mother-hen instincts.
Vampires! Why do they INSIST on being so mysterious? Half the trouble in Kitty Rocks the House could have been avoided if Rick was forthcoming with Kitty. But, then, that would be out of character and I’d be bitching about that lol. And then we wouldn’t have had the really tense, jaw dropping end that we had. A new layer to the Long Game has been revealed and it’s… Well I didn’t write me review until after reading the next book, so yeah, it’s exciting ‘kay?
And this is the part of the review that I remind you that you really must LISTEN to these books because of Marguerite Gavin’s truly awesome narration. She IS Kitty. Period. I don’t know if I’ll be able to listen to her narrate something else for quite a while actually lol.
And obviously I’ve read the next book, so watch for that review tomorrow 🙂
