Two little wolfies sitttin’ in a tree….K I S S I N G! First comes biting then comes shifting, then comes marriage… Okay, my lame attempt at werewolf wedding humor probably falls short. LOL Needless to say that Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand is the installment where Kitty and Ben are supposed to tie the proverbial knot. But hey, it just wouldn’t be a real day in the life of Kitty Norville if there wasn’t some type of paranormal shake up and chaos right?
Even though Kitty and Ben are mated, they are going to make it legal. Kitty’s mom wants the big fluffy Billy Idol white wedding (okay maybe not Billy Idol, but you get my drift), and Kitty wants it small and simple. What better way to escape wedding planner Hell than to elope. To Vegas no less! Should be easy enough, but when vampire Rick asks her to do him a favor and hook up with the head vamp in Vegas coupled with a hotel full of bounty hunters, things start to get a bit dicey.
We are five books into the Kitty Norville series, and it is amazing at how much Kitty’s character has grown both personally and professionally. Carrie Vaughn keeps molding all of these characters and shaping them like an artist would with clay. Stretching them to their limits yet keeping them strong enough not to break and remaining believable.
The secondary characters in this book are engaging and quite entertaining and lend a solid layer to the plotline. I would say I am really looking forward to reading book six Kitty Raises Hell next month, but I would be lying. Since I have already read it and it too knocked my socks off! I love it when publishers and authors team up and do back to back releases like this. It is like a double shot of paranormal goodness that keeps you craving more.
