Synopsis: Celebrity werewolf and late-night radio host Kitty Norville prefers to be heard and not seen. So when she’s invited to testify at a Senate hearing on behalf of supernaturals, and her face gets plastered on national TV, she inherits a new set of friends, and enemies, including the vampire mistress of the city; an über-hot Brazilian were-jaguar; and a Bible-thumping senator who wants to expose Kitty as a monster. Kitty quickly learns that in this city of dirty politicians and backstabbing pundits, everyone’s itching for a fight. -Goodreads

Review: I love this series! Have I mentioned that? Perhaps my creating an entire feature so that I could talk about it and one other series may have tipped you off. Kitty Norville (and Carrie Vaughn) is awesome! While what I really love about this series is Kitty’s character arc, Kitty goes to Washington stands alone as a fun story with an interesting look at what the politics of the supernatural might be like.

So, obviously…. Kitty goes to Washington. Now a psedo-celebrity, she is summed to a Senate hearing to say her part. And of course, things don’t quite go according to plan. While I still love the werewolf hierarchy that Vaughn has evolved, my favorite part of this book has to be the introduction of her vampires. They’re fantastic! Mysterious, but still a little bit human (or at least longing to be). Washington’s top vamp is a pretty dynamic lady, and I found myself hoping she’d make an appearance in every Kitty book I’ve read since this one.

Kitty herself is a little flimsy in this book, as she is growing in to her celebrity skin. So to speak. She’s still a very cool, down to earth character that I relate to on so many levels, but she occasionally seems to create trouble for the sake of trouble. Thankfully, the plot mainly carried this book, and even on my third reread, I still finished the last page a huge Carrie Vaughn fan.
