Kitty Norville is back and in more trouble than ever. Her recent run-in with werewolves traumatized by the horrors of war has made her start wondering how long the US government might have been covertly using werewolves in combat. Have any famous names in our own history might have actually been supernatural? She's got suspicions about William Tecumseh Sherman. Then an interview with the right vampire puts her on the trail of Wyatt Earp, vampire hunter.
But her investigations lead her to a clue about enigmatic vampire Roman and the mysterious Long Game played by vampires through the millennia. That, plus a call for help from a powerful vampire ally in San Francisco, suddenly puts Kitty and her friends on the supernatural chessboard, pieces in dangerously active play. And Kitty Norville is never content to be a pawn. . .
Kitty's new personal quest has become to research how many historical figures might have been werewolves, and how many vampires might have run into them.
While wondering about William Sherman, she gets on the trail of Wyatt Earp, who might have been a vampire hunter... but when Anastasia the vampire asks for her help in stopping Roman from finding an ancient and poweful relic, she goes to San Francisco and winds up finding 'Big Trouble in Little China'. Sorry, couldn't help myself. I just had to add that reference. ;)
Suddenly, the paranormal world has expanded and Kitty's right in the middle of it.
Wow, this was one action-packed book! I got tired just reading it, but spending time with Kitty, Ben and Cormac is always great.
I love this series. So much!
