Review: Kitty's Big Trouble by Carrie Vaughn

Kitty's Big Trouble
by Carrie Vaughn
(Kitty Norville # 9)

Well this just pains me.  I think this series is very original as far as the storylines and the things Kitty encounters and has to go through.  More so than maybe any other UF series out there.  Everything is done with just enough action, a little humor and a great set of characters that you can't help but love.  But somehow it has gotten to the point where it's not working as well for me.

This in big part is due to the fact that in book one I fell in love with Cormac.  He's tough, sexy, badass, a bad boy shifter killer.  And he had this instant, sparks-flying everywhere connection with Kitty.  And then his cousin Ben got bit and turned into a werewolf and he brought him to Kitty to help through the transition.  And it all went downhill from there between these two.

Now Cormac is back in the story but he is SOOOOOO not him.  Granted he is kind of possessed, but it almost pains me to read parts about him and how different he's become.  Especially in this book.  Kitty remembers the way Cormac used to smell, the way she always went to him first when there was an issue and she wanted advice.  It was just hard to read that being a Kitty/Cormac hopeful.

I have come to terms with the fact that Kitty is with Ben.  He is more of a beta male in my eyes and that's not my favorite type of hero.  I definietely see her as more dominant than him, but he does love her.

So now onto this story.  Yes, rant over about what apparently will never be.  Kitty, being curious and nosy as always goes looking for proof that some important historical figure was in fact a werewolf.  While she's researching that (and dragging Cormac and Ben along) they come across Anastasia.  She enlists them to help stop Roman from taking an ancient artifact with immense power.  Action pact as usual and another great installment that would make a kick ass movie if they ever made one!


Sorry that just came out of nowhere...

This is one of my least favorite books in the series. I never fell for Cormac so it was no big deal to me when she and Ben hooked up.

Def one of my least favorites as well.

I haven't read any books from this series nor have I read anything by this author...I will definitely be checking into both!

I have this series in my TBR list but haven't started it. Love triangle eh? Hmmm....well I am still intrigued enough to still want to check this series out. I wonder if there are more books planned in the series, or is it done?

@Timitra, I think the stories in this series are very unique and fun.

@Lexi, really there is no love triangle. Just in my head I thought one guy was a much better choice for her and there was some chemistry although nothing every happened. Then she got with her guy that she's been happily married pretty much the whole series. There are more books planned in this series, the next one is coming out in a few months.
