Urban fantasy is my favourite genre. I can't get enough of strong female characters facing down the underworld with their set of unique powers - and wit. Don't forget the wit. Perhaps I have a soft spot for the Kitty Norville books because I was once a DJ myself, though I was on community radio and certainly wasn't a werewolf.
It's an excellent introduction into Kitty's world which just gets deeper and richer with each book, though like any series some are better than others. The comedy and drama and action...it all just works. Some characters feel a bit two-dimensional. The book's strength is Kitty's strong, believable and very relatable voice. The pace is cracking too. Some plot points kind of wither away but they are dealt with in another book.
I adore this series, despite its flaws. I enjoy it more than the Sookie Stackhouse books (I'm blaming radio DJ bias) so if you like those and the Weather Warden books, do check out Kitty's adventures.
