Kitty’s House of Horrors by Carrie Vaughn is a solid addition to the story of radio talk-show host Kitty the werewolf that began with Kitty and the Midnight Hour. I’ve enjoyed the entire Kitty series and House of Horrors was no exception.
In Kitty’s House of Horrors, Kitty and her friends, including several fun new characters, are trapped in an isolated cabin and hunted down one by one. They must determine who has betrayed them and how to get away. The greatest strength of House of Horrors may have been the suspense, which I thought exceeded that of Vaughn’s previous novels.
What’s not to like? Well, if you read for romance, there was little in this book. And there was less development of the overall series arc than I’d hoped for, though enough that series followers should definitely read it. In short, if you are a fan of urban fantasy or a follower of Carrie Vaughn, then this book is an enjoyable read. I intend to continue reading the series and the author.
