Kitty Norville, star of a New York Times bestselling series, is everybody’s favorite werewolf DJ and out-of-the-closet supernatural creature. Over the course of eight books she’s fought evil vampires, were-creatures, and some serious black magic. She’s done it all with a sharp wit and the help of a memorable cast of werewolf hunters, psychics, and if-notgood- then-neutral vampires by her side. Kitty’s Greatest Hits not only gives readers some of Kitty’s further adventures, it offers longtime fans a window into the origins of some of their favorite characters. In “Conquistador de la Noche,” we learn the origin story of Denver’s Master vampire, Rick; with “Wild Ride,” we find out how Kitty’s friend T.J. became a werewolf; and in “Life is the Teacher,” we revisit Emma, the human-turned-unwilling-vampire who serves the aloof vampire Master of Washington, D.C. This entertaining collection includes two brand-new works: “You’re On the Air,” about one of Kitty’s callers after he hangs up the phone; and the eagerly awaited “Long Time Waiting,” the novella that finally reveals just what happened to Cormac in prison, something every Kitty fan wants to know.

I’m a big fan of the Kitty Norville series by Carrie Vaughn, and finished the last book several years ago. All that was left for me to completely finish the series was a couple of anthologies, Kitty’s Greatest Hits and Kitty’s Mix Tape (review here) and a novella, and I’ll be honest, I was putting off picking them up because this was my final goodbye to I loved. However, I’ve been trying to tidy up loose ends and actually finish book series rather than leave them hanging, so I bit the bullet and just did it.

Kitty’s Greatest Hits is a collection of short stories that Carrie Vaughn has collected together under one anthology. Many have been part of other anthologies, and I’d already read two of them (Il Est Ne and The Temptation of Robin Green), but there are also a few never before seen ones. One is a small story that spins off from one of Kitty’s on-air callers after he hangs up the phone and the other is the novella written about Cormac, one of the main characters, and events that happened to him ‘off-screen’.

 The stories cover a wide range of topics and characters, from historical periods and even an alternative take on a popular biblical tale (which I really enjoyed). Kitty features with her usual flair for getting caught up in things that only she can get caught up in, and the wider view of the entire Kitty Norville universe just made me ache for more. These short stories show just how big the supernatural world that Vaughn created is, and it feels like she barely scraped the surface of it in the series, which is a little bittersweet.
