Pabkin’s One Liner: Like listening to the female version of David Allen Bouche
Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station – and a werewolf in the closet. Her new late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged is a raging success, but it’s Kitty who can use some help. With one sexy werewolf-hunter and a few homicidal undead on her tail, Kitty may have bitten off more than she can chew?
Kitty and the Midnight Hour was a pleasure to listen to as an audio book. Now I don’t usually enjoy talk radio voices – they sound so fake and cheesey. But here it was made so obvious that I couldn’t help but find it entertaining! You could hear the shift in the narrator’s voice when she was on the radio and when she wasn’t.How the whole story unfolds with Kitty and her becoming this midnight hour talk show host for the paranormals is a lot of fun. Some of the questions and scenes were full of chuckles and others could even tug on your heart strings a bit.
I do have to admit that I did NOT like the third person switch in the perspective whenever Kitty would shift into wolf form. It just sounded so detached and impersonal. It made her wolf way less real to me.
I enjoyed the tension between Kitty and who appears to be a possible love interest. This one had a few sex scenes or references to sex just so you know and be prepared for that. There was a convenient info dump towards the end but I didn’t mind that at all, it was setup well enough.
It had good action, plenty of mystery and hey even a disgruntled or grumpy cop who wants the protagonist to assist them with some cases – what urban fantasy is complete with out that? *smirk*
All in all it was an enjoyable book and a great narration job. I’ll definitely be checking out the next book…though I have heard this is a pretty long series.
