Review: Kitty Goes to Washington by Carrie Vaughn
With the supernatural world exposed, partly due to Kitty Norville's radio talk show, a hearing is called by the senate in Washington to look into these matters specifically the role of the Center for the Study of Paranatural Biology. As the only semi-celebrity paranatural Kitty is invited to testify. However the chairman of the hearings, a bible-thumping senator, has his own agenda and the vampire mistress of Washington may have her own plans for Kitty as well.
Vaughn does an excellent job in creating a believable supporting cast in this novel. Each character has their own agenda for the hearings which keeps things very interesting. The pacing is also better controlled then the first book.
One thing missing from this novel is a sense of tension that was done very well in Kitty's first adventure. For 90% of this novel Kitty is in no real danger and this does hurt things a bit.
Overall strong characters and pacing but more tension would have helped. 7.75/10.
