Kitty gets to meet fairies and the alpha of London and make other new friends as well as stir up a bit of trouble. Like the series but wonder how long she can continue the storyline? ( )

Kitty hits London and she makes her presence known. She was just traveling to work on her show maybe do a few interviews and see the sights, but nothing is that easy when you're Kitty. She meets some very interesting people on this tour and some very unwelcome ones too. The war is getting closer, the unrest is rising, powers are taking sides and there is nothing to stop them but blood shed, or is there. Kitty is taunted, followed and tempted to cross the line.
Excellent addition to the series, Kitty just keeps growing and getting better. The author keeps the characters fresh and delves into new adventures with each new book. i can't wait to see what happens next. ( )

Kitty has been invited to London to give the keynote speech at a conference about paranormals. She is excited to learn and excited to line up interviews for her radio show. But no conference can go smoothly when protesters both favoring and hating paranormals are a constant presence. Also Roman is still agitating in the background in his quest for war.

Kitty, Ben and Cormac have been invited to stay with the master vampire of the city. Ned was a famous Shakespearean actor and knew Shakespeare and other literary lights of the day. Kitty is awed and fascinated by him. But as a vampire, Ben and Cormac don't trust him. Ned arranges for Kitty to meet other vampires who have gathered out of concern for the conference where Kitty sees things a modern American werewolf has trouble handling.

Kitty also meets the werewolf who is the alpha of the British werewolves. And Kitty meets faeries. Kitty is gathering allies for the upcoming war and foments rebellion among the werewolves who are held as property by some of the vampires. She is also trying to find out which vampires are allied with Roman.

When her friend Tyler is kidnapped, Kitty calls on all her allies to help find him including the werewolf alpha, the vampire Ned, and her new human contact who is a descendent of Amelia, the spirit who is sharing headspace with her friend Cormac.

This was an exciting and entertaining addition to the long running Kitty Norville series. I liked the way Kitty firmed up her belief that communication can solve many problems and that conspiracies exposed to the light lose some of their power. ( )

I would give this story a four, except that I was greatly disappointed by what I felt was an anticlimactic ending. I think the story would've benefiteed from a more dramatic move. It's been 10 books now. Kitty has earned the right to really shake the world stage in a more impactful way ( )

The tenth book has the action in London at a conference on Paranatural Studies. The book gets more into how the rest of the supernatural world gets along and how different it is compared to the US. And of course Kitty finds out there is more supernatural out there than she knew. It was more of a setup book for the rest of the series setting up the battle lines against Roman. A good read and will be waiting for the next one.
