I picked up Kitty Goes to War (Urban Fantasy 334 pages) by Carrie Vaughn on 26 June and read it all in one sitting on 28 June.
Carrie Vaughn is easily becoming one of my favorite authors – one of those people where I will read every single story written by them. Her characters are fantastic, her story-telling style is smooth and realistic, and all of her plots are solid.
In Kitty Goes to War, Kitty has to deal with a team of rogue Army Special Forces werewolves who recently redeployed from Afghanistan. I was a little bit unsettled when I read the tagline for the book, as this kind of plot could go any number of directions. But then I remembered who the author is, an author that I as a reader trust. The book was well done, and there were a lot of parts that really resonated with me. The characters dealt with a really crappy situation in very realistic ways and some of those situations were things I’ve seen many people deal with, the only difference being that they aren’t werewolves when they have to go through it.
I’m not really up to giving a more in-depth review right now. Overall, the book was fantastic, even though I almost cried at about three different places. I continue to be impressed with this series and will continue to read all that I can by Vaughn.
