Kitty Steals the Show (Kitty Norville #10) - Carrie Vaughn

Kitty receives an invitation to attend the First International Conference on Paranatural Studies in London. What's more: she's been tapped to be the keynote speaker. From the moment, she, her husband Ben, and the redoubtable Cormac arrive in London, where she renews an acquaintance with a young vampire (Emma) she knew in Washington and is introduced to Emma's patron and mentor Ned (the Master Vampire of London, who boasts of having known Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, and Winston Churchill), they find themselves caught up in a long, twilight struggle among vampires and werewolves that could erupt into a full-scale war.

Where others might shrink from what may appear hopeless odds, Kitty struggles to stand tall, and together with some of Ned's fellow vampires and a number of werewolves from the UK pack (led by Caleb, a very wily and saavy alpha male), she has some rather hair-raising experiences. There's never a dull moment with this novel, which will always have the reader anxious to know how events unfold. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
