#79: Kitty Steals the Show - Carrie Vaughn (With Giveaway)

(Affiliate link)

Kitty has been tapped as the keynote speaker for the First International Conference on Paranatural Studies, taking place in London. The conference brings together scientists, activists, protestors, and supernatural beings from all over the world—and Kitty, Ben, and Cormac are right in the middle of it.
Master vampires from dozens of cities have also gathered in London for a conference of their own. With the help of the Master of London, Kitty gets more of a glimpse into the Long Game—a power struggle among vampires that has been going on for centuries—than she ever has before. In her search for answers, Kitty has the help of some old allies, and meets some new ones, such as Caleb, the alpha werewolf of the British Isles. The conference has also attracted some old enemies, who’ve set their sights on her and her friends.
All the world’s a stage, and Kitty’s just stepped into the spotlight.

My Opinion:
 Even though this is book 10, I still enjoyed reading it and didn't feel lost at all. This is one of those series that seems like each book is a new adventure or plot, so no matter how you read them it's all good. At least, that's the impression it left on me. I do have a couple more books in my tbr pile to check the authenticity of those impressions, which I will soon.
Kitty is one cool character. She kicks ass, has a great personality and is surrounded by interesting people. I enjoyed the relationship with Ben, and think they suit each other well. I also love the book didn't stick to that relationship, and rather brought excitement through in other parts of the story.
For me, this is more of a paranormal suspense novel than a fantasy, but to each his own.

3/5
