(Click HERE for a chance to win Carrie Vaughn's newest, Kitty Raises Hell or the whole 6 book set!!)
Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand follows our heroine and her sidekick/lawyer/fiancé, Ben, to Vegas, baby! Yup, they’re gonna tie the knot, drink frou frou drinks with little umbrellas and soak up the sun. Of course, our workaholic werewolf can’t resist the offer to do a live tv show from Vegas, while Ben finds out that werewolves special abilities lead to “special” poker playing advantages. While looking for special acts to feature on her tv special, Kitty comes across a Vegas magician who might be much more than he appears, as well as a live animal show, featuring so much more than just animals. All this adds to the issue of the convention in the same hotel as Kitty and Ben. A convention of werewolf hating bounty hunters, who seem pretty determined that Kitty’s frou-frou drinks by the pool just won’t ever happen.
I don’t know how Carrie Vaughn does it! Each book in this fun series has something to offer. Its always interesting to see what direction the author is going to go, and its always fun to watch Kitty’s relationships grow and change. I think I’ll miss the series when I complete number 6!
