As Denver adjusts to a new master vampire, Kitty gets word of an intruder in the Denver werewolf pack’s territory, and she investigates the challenge to her authority. She follows the scent of the lycanthrope through the mountains where she is lured into a trap, tranquilized, and captured. When she wakes up, she finds herself in a defunct silver mine: the perfect cage for a werewolf. Her captors are a mysterious cult seeking to induct Kitty into their ranks in a ritual they hope will put an end to Dux Bellorum. Though skeptical of their power, even Kitty finds herself struggling to resist joining their cause. Whatever she decides, they expect Kitty to join them in their plot . . . willingly or otherwise.

“With the Kitty series, Vaughn has demonstrated a knack for believable characters (even if they are werewolves) and mile-a-minute plotting.”
—Sunday Camera (Boulder, CO)
“Vaughn’s a skilled writer, and has provided a well-paced, breezy outing. . . . An entertaining action story.”
—Realms of Fantasy, on Kitty's Big Trouble
“The only urban fantasy world where I want to read every book of the series.”
—The Denver Post
“[Vaughn] manages to combine outright thrills with an offbeat sense of humor and then mesh it with Kitty’s dogged determination. The result—entertainment exemplified!”
—Romantic Times Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars, on Kitty's Big Trouble
“Vaughn’s trademark sense of humor continues to distinguish this urban fantasy series, and the seamless integration of a variety of paranormal creatures (including vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters) in the everyday world is entertaining.”
