Kitty and the Silver Bullet

2 things come to the front of my mind before I begin this review.

1) I'D LIKE TO THANK DARLA D. FOR SHOWING ME THIS SERIES and. . .

2) I love guessing how the title of the book relates to the plot.


For those of you that follow this series you will recall with no problem that Kitty has been on the move for about a year. She had to leave her pack in Denver after her best friend T.J. was murdered by the Alpha Male Carl. Kitty and T.J. were a huge threat to Carl and Meg (the Alpha female). When Carl kills T.J. she has no choice but to leave Denver and ne'er return.

The journey that Kitty's been on in the past year has had many highs and extreme 'lows'. Well does public humiliation qualify as a "low"? She has come away from her adventures on the road as a strong person: more sure in the power of who she is both Human and Wolf. She has meet many helpful people (vampiric and lycanthropic alike) and has also helped to take down corrupt people in high places.

When she receives a call on night her world is turned askew. She receives a phone call telling her that her mother is ill and Kitty is needed immediately. Instant fear strikes kitty. This isn't a cold, not it's much worse: her mother might have breast cancer.

However, it won't be easy for Kitty to return to Denver. Her old pack still roams the lands, and Carl and Meg would be all too happy to end Kitty's life. Plus one of her friends Rick (a vampire) has asked for Kitty's help in staging a coo with the Master of the City. The coo won't be easy - for Carl has sided with the old Master - and this is a fight that will involve everyone.

I love these books. I know, I know I say that about every book but it's true! I've only picked up 1 book (ok 2) that I haven't been able to get past the first 100 pages! I can always trust Darla D's advice when she recommends me books. Kitty has grown much more in this last book - and she'd have too. Facing and illness is never easy for any party involved, but it makes your stronger (and I mean mentally). She also had to finally face the fact that she's a leader and can't always fun from her problems. Sure, she still may try - but don't we all?

I'm trying to think of any parts I might of hated in the book, and I can't think of a single on. Ok, maybe 1 but it's more of my opinion - but when I think about it - there is really no point. I sometimes which she'd gone with Cormac. I mean, Ben's alright and stuff but Cormac is like the rough and ruggedly handsome type and I see Ben as more of a rather drab person (even though he can clean up enough to be on GQ covers).

Recommend to me by Darla D.

OMG! It's such a wonderful series with a strong heroine, whose also cheeky at times. You'll love it I promise or I'll post an apology?! Lol

I'm so glad you're enjoying this series as much as I am. I have some more books in a box to send you, including the follow-up to this one. I agree about Cormac, but Ben is growing on me.

I know!! Now that you said that Darla, he's growing on me too . . . but Cormac. Do they let him out in the next book? Ooooh don't tell me :P

So I saw the Lunch Lady series today at work and it made me think of you :P
