Kitty's radio show is as popular as ever and she has a boyfriend who actually seems to understand her. Can she finally settle down to a normal life? Not if this is just the calm before the storm. When her mother falls ill, Kitty rushes back to Denver--and right back to the abusive pack of werewolves she escaped a year ago. To make matters worse, a war is brewing between the city's two oldest vampires, threatening the whole supernatural community. Though she wants to stay neutral, Kitty is again drawn into a world of politics and violence. To protect her family, her lover, and herself, she'll have to choose sides. And maybe become what she hates--a killer.

After vacationing and working on The Midnight Hour out of town, Kitty finally returns home in this installment, finally able to face what she has left behind. Carl and Meg are alerted to her presence and partner with age-old vampire Arturo to expel her out of town, but Kitty’s backed by a police and opposing vampire Rick.

Caught between some territorial wars between vampires and werewolves, and facing a very personal battle against Carl and Meg, how does Kitty fare in Kitty and the Silver Bullet?

As always, the world of Kitty Norville is a refreshing and light read. Kitty’s always enjoyable to read about because she’s just so real, even though she’s a werewolf. She’s got a life and family to care about, and with the new addition of her co-alpha Ben, she’s got a lot to live for.

That’s why she stands up to Carl and Meg, her previous pack leaders where she was the most submissive in the pack. For those who cringed seeing Kitty being used and abused in the first book, you’ll get your vengeance here.

This book was much more action packed than the previous ones, and there are a LOT of characters that you’ll come across here. I found it a little more difficult to follow than previous installments, but still enjoyed it a lot. Kitty really grows and stands tall in this book and it’s refreshing to see such a turn around since the last time she was here.

Rating: 4 out of 5
