KITTY ROCKS THE HOUSE proves that Kitty is one tough and creative werewolf. She’s trying to be a stern but fair alpha, dealing with the vampires’ Long Game, and hosting her radio show.

One thing I like about Kitty Norville that she is excellent at talking herself out of situations and getting people to see her side of things. She’s forced to rely on that skill a lot in KITTY STEALS THE SHOW as she gets into more trouble with vampires by constantly asking questions she probably shouldn’t.
