Description from REALITY BITES

Talk radio host and werewolf Kitty Norville has agreed to appear on TV’s first all-supernatural reality show. She’s expecting cheesy competitions and manufactured drama starring shapeshifters, vampires, and psychics. But what begins as a publicity stunt will turn into a fight for her life.

The cast members, including Kitty, arrive at the remote mountain lodge where the show is set. As soon as filming starts, violence erupts and Kitty suspects that the show is a cover for a nefarious plot. Then the cameras stop rolling, cast members start dying, and Kitty realizes she and her monster housemates are ironically the ultimate prize in a very different game. Stranded with no power, no phones, and no way to know who can be trusted, she must find a way to defeat the evil closing in . . . before it kills them all.

I was hesitant to read this book because I felt like I was getting Kitty-ied out but I’m glad I did.  I don’t know if it’s because there wasn’t much Ben or if the story line just really grabbed me this time but I didn’t want to stop reading.  Not only was Kitty participating in this reality show but we also saw some of my favorite characters back like Odysseus Grant, Jeffrey-the TV psychic, Ariel-Kitty’s fellow radio personality and Tina the paranormal investigator who has her own psychic talents.  From reading the book blurb I was dying to know which characters would make it through and which ones would end up being killed.  I liked them all so I was really biting my nails.  It truly was like watching a horror movie and wondering who would be the next to go.

We also saw a few more moves in the Long Game that the vampires have had going on as Kitty meets another ancient vampire.   And the best part and I hope this doesn’t ruin anything for anyone but Cormac is finally going to be paroled!  I cannot wait to see where this goes.  I really would like to see Kitty and Cormac together but unless Ben dies I really don’t see how that could happen.

If you want to find out who makes it out of the house of horrors you definitely need to pick this one up!

    I’ve read the first four books and like you was afraid that I was getting a little burned out on the series. I read them back to back in about 10 days. However, as much as I hate reality shows, this sounds like it would be a hoot. Now to get my hands on book 5 and I’m set.
