Kitty's Mix Tape
Kitty Norville #16
by Carrie Vaughn
Tachyon Publications, $16.95, 288pp
Published: October 2020

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.

As a special treat, author Carrie Vaughn (Bannerless) has provided her own selections for a mix-tape: story notes and songs dedicated to each tale.

So whatever you do, don’t miss Kitty before she is gone. . . .

It has been awhile since I read anything in the Kitty Norville universe and this was an enjoyable reminder of just how much I enjoyed the series and how much I’d like to see more stories of Kitty. These stories also show just how interesting some of the minor players in her universe are. Favorite stories in this collection were  Kitty Walks On By, Calls Your Name where Kitty goes to her high school reunion, It’s Still the Same Old Story with Rick the vampire  and The Arcane Art of Misdirection which just makes me want to see a whole series focusing on Odysseus Grant, a stage magician who is so much more.

If you have never delved into Kitty’s world this collection can still be enjoyed as well as acting as an introduction to the series. I am inspired to go and read the whole series again from the beginning - I mean, who can resist a werewolf named Kitty. Highly recommended. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
