Kitty Takes a Holiday

Kitty is taking a much-needed vacation at a cabin in Colorado when once again events seem to center around her. First, someone begins leaving crosses and dead animals around her cabin. Then her friend Cormac shows up with her lawyer Ben in two, injured from a werewolf attack. Not long after that, a red-eyed and evil wolf-like presence begins hanging around. Things are never simple for our favorite werewolf DJ.

As I’ve said in previous reviews of the Kitty series, my favorite part of the books is how Vaughn melds a pack mentality and psychology with human traits. Werewolves have an instinct and drive to form a “pack”, a find a group that they can belong to. Kitty has been “rogue” for several months of series time, but now she has a chance to build an actual pack for herself. I like how Vaughn explores the difficulties of human-werewolf relationships.

Character development is also well done. After the events of the second book, Kitty is no longer certain if she wants to continue her radio show. Ben becomes a werewolf and needs Kitty’s help to get through the transition. The resulting new pack means the relationship between all three friends now changes completely.

Kitty Takes a Holiday is another good book in the Kitty series. Recommended.

Rating: 7.5/10.
