Genre: Adult Paranormal/Fantasy (Light Romance)
Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Hachette Book Group/Grand Central Publishing

Goodreads Synopsis:

In the seventh entry in Carrie Vaughn's bestselling Kitty Norville series, a publicity stunt turns into a fight for the popular radio talk show host's life.
Talk radio host and werewolf Kitty Norville has agreed to appear on TV's first all-supernatural reality show. She's expecting cheesy competitions and manufactured drama starring shapeshifters, vampires, and psychics. But what begins as a publicity stunt will turn into a fight for her life.

The cast members, including Kitty, arrive at the remote mountain lodge where the show is set. As soon as filming starts, violence erupts and Kitty suspects that the show is a cover for a nefarious plot. Then the cameras stop rolling, cast members start dying, and Kitty realizes she and her monster housemates are ironically the ultimate prize in a very different game. Stranded with no power, no phones, and no way to know who can be trusted, she must find a way to defeat the evil closing in . . . before it kills them all.

Available on Amazon.


This book was fantastic; exactly what I wanted, very exciting. I read it in one day, almost one sitting, because it was so good and I did not want to put it down.
It’s the same Kitty, wanting to do some publicity stunt, only ending up in a much different scene than she expected, with a lot more murder going on.
There was really only one main plot going on here, with perhaps the mention of something happening with Ben and Cormac, but in this book Kitty is out of town with a bunch of other supernaturals and away from Ben, so we really only get to see the action happening around Kitty, which is very exciting.
Her and several other supernaturals are pulled into this reality TV type show, told that it’s kind of an experiment, and that the producers want the viewers to see that supernaturals aren’t that bad. Only, the producers aren’t telling the truth, and something much more nefarious is happening, and Kitty even tries to get her mind in the same place as Cormac, taking charge and trying to figure out what the killers would do, in order to survive.
I knew something was going to happen, but I will say I expected it to be a much bigger ploy, something a bit more wide-ranged than it was. Still, it was very exciting. I was practically glued to the pages, it was so good. And there was barely any Ben, even. Next to no romance, and I still loved every bit of it.
While there wasn’t much of a sub plot, there was something big happening with Cormac (that I won’t spoil, but makes me very excited for the next book), and we got a tiny bit more information about Roman, the big bad vampire from the last book. Plus, we got to meet several new characters and revisit some old ones, and that was nice. Although, as I mentioned above, there were some murders that I didn't enjoy so much.
So, to sum up, this book was fantastic, and I am very excited to read the next one, and I plan on reading it very soon.
