I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars

Description from Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station – and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts “The Midnight Hour”, a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged.

After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success. But it’s Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew…

It took me awhile to get into this book and I was a little worried especially since I also have 4 or 5 more books of this series.  Luckily about halfway through I started getting into the groove.  My initial turn off was Kitty seemed so spineless and I didn’t care for her submissive behavior towards Carl. Yes, I know that is wolf pack behavior but it still rubbed me the wrong way.  I loved Cormac, TJ and even the little we saw of the vampire Rick.  I am hoping to see more of Rick and definitely more of Cormac in the future.  The chemistry between Cormac and Kitty was definitely smokin’!  I’ll be curious to see how Kitty’s self confidence evolves.

    I plan to start this series in 2010. Something I’ve wanted to do, but no time.

    I just started this series also and like you wasn’t immediately drawn to Kitty.(I have been quick to realize that the author has to have room for the character to grow and mature) Kitty was way too weak and needy. Well, after a week things have changed. I just started book 4(at 2:30 this morning after finishing book 3)and the world of Kitty has rocked. Kitty has grown and matured wonderfully. She has become a kick-ass heroine with balls of steel(although she still has her moments of self doubt) The deeper I get into this series the more I love it. It’s not all about werewolves, this is an equal opportunity paranormal creature series. I hate that it is suppose to end at book 9 but at least I’ll be along for the ride. A 5 star series that will suck you in completely.

    J. Kaye-I debated starting a challenge to motivate me to read the whole series.
    Lisa-Thanks! That is good to hear. I started book 2 but had to put it aside to finish up a few other books. Maybe I will get back to it if it gets better.

    I plan to read this series sometime in 2010 as well. I really am making an attempt not to start a new series until I make a dent in the ones I’ve started!
