Kitty's Big Trouble (Kitty Norville, Book 9) by Carrie Vaughn
Book 9 starts with Kitty's questioning how many important people throughout history have been werewolves, vampires or something else. She thinks that General Sherman was a werewolf and is looking for proof. What she finds is more than what she bargained for.
In the mist of this, she gets a call from vampire Anastasia asking for her help. There is a powerful artifact called the Dragon Pearl and it needs to be protected before Roman gets to it.
She takes her pack, meaning Ben, her husband and Cormac to San Francisco. We see Cormack dealing with sharing a body with the Spirit of Amelia and Ben seems to be battling with staying human most of the time. Kitty is forced to meet with the Vampire Family in San Francisco. She makes more allies down the line.
A fight against evil is brewing and tough choices and sides have to be picked. Also, we get more questions about the Long Game and how will this affect the werewolves.
Unfortunately, this series is losing it's appeal to me. At times I had to force myself to continue. Ben seems to be loosing it quit frequently and I am still rooting for Cormac. How wrong is that?
I will still see it to the end of the series. But the first few books were the best. I missed the spirit of those books, when Kitty was trying to survive and became stronger with each ordeal.
