Buy Kitty Goes to War (Kitty Norville, Book 8) here

Kitty Norville, Alpha werewolf and host of The Midnight Hour, a radio call-in show, is contacted by a friend at the NIH's Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology. Three Army soldiers recently returned from the war in Afghanistan are being held at Ft. Carson in Colorado Springs.  They're killer werewolves—and post traumatic stress has left them unable to control their shape-shifting and unable to interact with people.  Kitty agrees to see them, hoping to help by bringing them into her pack.   

Meanwhile, Kitty gets sued for libel by CEO Harold Franklin after featuring Speedy Mart--his nationwide chain of 24-hour convenience stores with a reputation for attracting supernatural unpleasantness--on her show. 

Very bad weather is on the horizon.

What I thought:

I just can't get enough of Kitty. These are getting better and better with each new book that comes out. I've read a few reviews that say the title is misleading, while it may seem to some, I thought it was entirely appropriate.

The Iraqi and Afghanistan wars are still touchy today, Ms Vaughn takes a new look at the war. An entirely fictional look, but interesting none the less. What would happen if the Army utilized a highly trained and skilled werewolf team that could go where no others could go? What happens when those soldiers come back from said war only to suffer as any of their human counterparts would?

I love how Kitty just wants to help people, her humanity is definitely noteworthy. While she is willing to do what it takes, she also realizes that sometimes you aren't always successful.

Another part of this book I loved was a bit of a closer look at Cormac, who has just been released from prison and is trying to cope with being an independent citizen again.

I can't wait for the next, I will keep rooting for Kitty.

I gave it 5 stars!
