Kitty Norville series by Carrie Vaughn
As creator and host of The Midnight Hour, a talk radio show “that isn’t afraid of the dark or the creatures that live there,” Kitty answers questions and doles out advice to the all-to-real supernatural community, discourages humans from choosing lycanthropy or vampirism as a lifestyle, and often gets herself into a lot of trouble.
She has a number of people, alive and undead, out for her blood, metaphorically and literally. Her adventures are entertaining and sincere, making the fantasy world she lives in believable.
Read the series in order: Kitty and the Midnight Hour, Kitty Goes to Washington, Kitty Takes a Holiday, Kitty and the Silver Bullet, Kitty and the Dead Man’s Hand, Kitty Raises Hell, and Kitty’s House of Horrors (will be released January 4, 2010).
