Pg. 99: Carrie Vaughn's "Kitty and the Silver Bullet"

The current feature at the Page 99 Test: Carrie Vaughn's Kitty and the Silver Bullet.

About the book, from the publisher:
Kitty's radio show is as popular as ever and she has a boyfriend who actually seems to understand her. Can she finally settle down to a normal life? Not if this is just the calm before the storm. When her mother falls ill, Kitty rushes back to Denver--and right back to the abusive pack of werewolves she escaped a year ago. To make matters worse, a war is brewing between the city's two oldest vampires, threatening the whole supernatural community. Though she wants to stay neutral, Kitty is again drawn into a world of politics and violence. To protect her family, her lover, and herself, she'll have to choose sides. And maybe become what she hates--a killer.
Among the praise for the novel:
"Just plain fun. An underappreciated quality in the literary world."
--Warren Hammond, author of KOP and Ex-KOP

"engrossing and suspenseful...."
--Publishers Weekly

"The quality of Carrie Vaughn’s story telling is, as ever, first rate. Once again she has delivered a fast paced, exciting urban fantasy populated with both likeable and realistic characters.... Kitty and The Silver Bullet is an entertaining read that shouldn’t fail to satisfy both werewolf and vampire fans alike."

"[T]he best novel in the series so far. The action/fight scenes were more compelling than the other novels [and] the reader finds out more information on the vampire world.... Definitely pick up this book for a wonderful story and great characters."
