    Moon Called by Patricia Briggs (amberwitch)
    amberwitch: Great urban fantasy series, both first person narratives with shapeshifting female protagonists.

    Tempting Danger by Eileen Wilks (Anonymous user)
    Anonymous user: The Kitty series isn't quite as good as Wilks's Lupi series (in my opinion) but if you enjoyed one I think you're likely to enjoy the other. Both are urban fantasies with a werewolf theme. The Lupi series is well written with engaging characters in an interesting urban fantasy world, quite fast paced with some romance too :o). The Kitty series is good fun despite the occasional daft plot premise and unexplainable actions by characters.
    ps Patricia Brigg's Mercy series - starting with Moon Called - outshines both of these, but someone's already recommended that here so I had to make do with second best!

    Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison (crazybatcow)
    crazybatcow: Similar themes of "woman finding her place among peers/friends as she grows into her skills/strengths".

Kitty is a werewolf radio alternative music host on late night public radio show. She stays off the main grid until, she starts letting her otherness drift into her radio show and becomes a public celebrity as a werewolf. Her pack, the local vampires and some religious factions are not pleased about her coming out and opening that whole can of worms. She as a submissive wolf must learn to deal with people trying to kill her, the cops trying to use her, her pack power struggles and try to help solve some recent murders. Life is never easy.
I really enjoyed this romp through Kitties world. She grows and finds herself solving her own problems through trial and error. The pack dynamics where realistic, as was her character. A good solid urban fantasy. ( )

I forgot how much I love this book! I’m rereading the Kitty Norville series as part of One Book Two’s current read-along, and it’s been fun to meet Kitty, Cormac, Ben, Rick, and TJ all over again.

I think my favorite scenes in this book are between Kitty and Cormac. I love the end of the assassination scene where Cormac finally looks around the doorway at Kitty and says, “That you, Norville?” I can just picture big, bad Cormac, loaded with weapons, seeing this tiny blonde girl hunched in the corner with headphones on. You wonder if he could have killed her, looking like that, even if he wanted to.

I also love the scene where Kitty’s call-in listeners are asking Kitty whether she’s dating Cormac. First, she can hardly believe her listeners would think it’s okay to date someone who tried to kill her, then Cormac calls in and tells her to change the subject right now! He’s obviously amused and playing with her, which just gives Kitty’s listeners more fuel for their imagination.

Those are the light-hearted moments in the book. The rest is pretty intense, from the twisted, dependent psychology of the wolf pack to the fear that drives Kitty from her hometown. It’s less disconcerting this time around, though, since I know how much better Kitty’s life becomes over the course of the next thirteen books.

This is one of my favorite books in one of my favorite series. It gets a shiny fat five from me.

So I really have liked most of the things I've read by Carrie Vaughn so I decided that this needed to be given a shot since I've heard a lot of good things about it.

Kitty is definitely interesting and this seems to be about personal growth so I'll probably keep going with the series. Loved Cormac, he's kind of awesome. ( )
