Kitty has been tapped as the keynote speaker for the First International Conference on Paranatural Studies, taking place in London. The conference brings together scientists, activists, protestors, and supernatural beings from all over the world—and Kitty, Ben, and Cormac are right in the middle of it.
Master vampires from dozens of cities have also gathered in London for a conference of their own. With the help of the Master of London, Kitty gets more of a glimpse into the Long Game—a power struggle among vampires that has been going on for centuries—than she ever has before. In her search for answers, Kitty has the help of some old allies, and meets some new ones, such as Caleb, the alpha werewolf of the British Isles. The conference has also attracted some old enemies, who’ve set their sights on her and her friends.
All the world’s a stage, and Kitty’s just stepped into the spotlight.As you know I've been catching up on my series reading. Unfortunately, the library didn't catch up as fast as I wanted so I have had to mix it up a bit and go with #10 when I should have been reading #8. However, it didn't matter I never got lost and I really enjoyed my time with Kitty and the gang. So, while I wasn't lost, it really is more enjoyable to read these in order. You really get the feel of the characters growth that way. Yes, I did say read in order... don't faint on me. ;)
In this book Kitty goes to London. I thought it was perfect because of the summer Olympic games. Already had London fever, so I slipped into the world quite easily. There is a international conference on the paranormal and Kitty is a guest speaker as well as attendant. And since this is Kitty, you know she finds trouble even when she isn't trying. In this case, she did try a little, but with good cause. All I can say about that without spoiling the other previous books. :)
In this story we also get a few new characters. We get to know more master vampires, lycanthopes, and even faeries (I mean we are in England...). I really enjoyed getting to know them all and found myself eager to learn more of the back story on a couple of characters I missed. Even so, as I said before, I was not lost at all.
In the end, the main story feels complete. The story arc that we have had since book 6 (and hints of it before that as well...) is still not finished, so you know that Kitty will return. I really can't wait.
I give this book 4 stars. I really enjoyed my time in London with Kitty. I loved her compassion for others as well as her banter with her husband, Ben. I really love them as a couple. I suggest it for those that love a good were story as well as those who enjoy UF. Seriously, I recommend the whole series.
