Kitty Norville, werewolf radio call-in show host, gets a call from an old friend at the NIH’s Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology, a friend with a problem, who doesn’t know where else to turn. Three Army soldiers who have recently returned from the war in Afghanistan are in custody at Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs. They’re also werewolves suffering from post traumatic stress, unable to control their shape-shifting, unable to interact with people. Kitty agrees to see them, curious and wanting to help.
Meanwhile, Kitty gets sued for slander after featuring Speedy Mart—a chain of 24-hour convenience stores with a reputation for attracting the supernatural—on her show, and an old friend-and-adversary has just been released from jail.
I love this series. Kitty is so entertaining what with all the stuff she gets herself into. I have bben reading the whole series for years and it just doesn't get old.
I love all of the characters, Kitty is so strong and has come so far from where she was in book 1. Cormac is back as well but his time in prison has changed him - literally. I was also a bit disappointed by the lack of Ben, he's not really in this book which is a shame because he's really grown on me.
I also quickly want to mention one of the characters that is introduced in this book: Tyler is awesome. I want more Tyler!
I loved this book, it blends the seriousness of the Alpha-less soldier wolves with PTSD with the lighter issue of Kitty getting sued for libel by Harold Franklin, the CEO of speedy mart.
4 Stars - While the lack of Ben and Cormac's weirdness are major negative points as they are 2 of my favourite characters. The book is good enough to stand on it's own two feet and doesn't deserve a deduction of more than a star.
A Final Note
While I thoroughly recommend this book, it's number 8 in a series so I also thoroughly recommend you read the first 7 before picking this one up.
