Cormac is in the clink. Kitty and Ben are trying to settle into the new pack of two. Then everything comes crashing down when Rick shows up asking Kitty to help him overthrow the supernatural power structure in Denver, followed by a call from Kitty’s father that her mother is having surgery for breast cancer and could she please come home?
I particularly liked this bit from her Kitty’s mom.
“Life is short,” she said. “I’m going to be completely decadent this week. To think, all those years I was worried about my weight. If I’d known I might lose it all in a heartbeat, I’d have eaten more ice cream.”
Eat more ice cream is a good philosophy.
There is a lot that happens in this book–lots of political maneuvering especially–but it’s complex and interesting.
Plus, Kitty has gone back to doing her show.
Here’s what I think, with the caveat that I may be wrong. I think we’re here to make the world a better place than we found it. I think we don’t always deserve the cards that we’re dealt, good or bad. But we are judged by how we play the cards we’re dealt. Those of us with a bum deal that makes it harder to do good—we just have to work a little more is all. There’s no destiny. There’s just muddling through without doing too much damage.
One of the things I particularly enjoyed was the growth of Kitty’ and Ben’s relationship. They are unsure about what they have, and whether it’s real or just something pushed upon them by their wolves.
Yet they’re still amusing.
“What is it?”
“I think we’re being followed.”
Oh, that was almost funny. I twisted around to look out the back window. “Are you serious?”
“Could you be a little less obvious?” Ben said.
“But this is hilarious. We’re being followed? Really? Do I get to shoot out the window next?”
“Kitty, sit down.”
I’m thoroughly enjoying re-reading this series.

ADDENDUM the First: If you’re paying attention to the time stamps, I really am reading these books this quickly. Normally I’ll read several books before I get around to writing several reviews, but since I’m borrowing these ebooks from the library, I’m reviewing immediately and then returning the book to check out the next one. (I love being able to borrow books from the comfort of my sofa.)
