Kitty Norville still can’t stay away from trouble of the supernatural kind.
Everyone’s favorite werewolf DJ is here to mix it up just one last time. Here you will find, or even newly discover, the irrepressible Kitty Norville with friends and enemies alike: Rick the vampire; Jessi Hardin, paranormal detective; Kitty’s husband Ben; Cormac, the bounty hunter; and the villainous Dux Bellorum. These irresistible tales are full of unpredictable twists and turns: lupines experimenting with astronomy, a cheating boxer with preternatural strength, vampires arriving from the Philippines.
It’s been five years since Kitty Saves the World and I loved the recent book about her good friend, Rick in The Immortal Conquistador. Kitty’s Mix Tape is a collection of new and reprinted stories in her world. I always appreciate short story anthologies so one doesn’t have to go out and find them separately in different publications. I don’t know the mix of old vs. new but I was unfamiliar with them and I always try to read everything in a series.
Other than Kitty or Ben, there are stories about many other favorite characters in the world, as well as a main villain. I enjoyed the stories with Kitty in them the most, or Rick, but they are all great character development additions to the series.
It took me a long time to read because some stories were more interesting to me than others. I would not recommend this for those who have not read the series. As a fan who has read every book in the Kitty Norville series, I enjoyed it.
