Reviews

Praise for The Immortal Conquistador

"The Immortal Conquistador was a captivating read that finally shed some light on one of the most interesting and secretive characters from the Kitty universe. This book is sure to please all the Kitty Norville fans out there!"
--Pat's Fantasy Hotlist

"A must have for Kitty Norville fans, but also an excellent standalone for readers new to Vaughn's worlds."
--Kelley Armstrong, author of Wherever She Goes and Led Astray.

"No surprise to anyone, but Carrie Vaughn can write the sixteenth century up through the Old West as well as it's been done. And it just feels so good to sneak back into the Kittyverse through the vampire door."
--Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrels and The Only Good Indians.

"Carrie Vaughn's The Immortal Conquistador is an excellent addition to her Kitty Norville books, and gives us a closer look at one of her most fascinating characters."
--Stephen Blackmoore, author of the Eric Carter Necromancer series

Praise for Carrie Vaughn

On Bannerless

2017 Winner of the Philip K. Dick Award

"Bannerless is both a fine murder mystery and a multi-layered look at a different kind of society."
--Analog Science Fiction & Fact

"Vaughn skillfully portrays a vastly altered future America that's almost unrecognizable decades after its total collapse; the ... focus on sustainability and responsibility is unusual, thought-provoking, and very welcome."
--Publishers Weekly

"[A]n intimate post-apocalyptic mystery ... a deft portrait of a society departed so completely from the complexities of the now-destroyed civilization ... that survivors don't even understand what it is they've lost. ... [A] well-crafted and heartfelt effort."
--Kirkus

"Amazing and compelling, Vaughn brings her deft characterization and humanity to bear on a post-apocalyptic world that is all too real."
--Tobias S. Buckell, bestselling author of Arctic Rising

On The Wild Dead

"This thrilling postapocalyptic mystery, which demonstrates the author's wide range of style, will please Vaughn's many fans."
--Library Journal, starred review

"Enid is a capable, honest, relentless seeker of answers, and her investigation is reminiscent of classic hardboiled mysteries. Despite an almost palpable air of claustrophobic foreboding, this tale still manages to convey a sense of hope and optimism."
--Publishers Weekly

"Structurally, this is a standard police procedural; it's the environment, the carefully constructed future society, that gives it a unique flavor. Beautifully executed."
--Booklist

"Carrie Vaughn may still be best known for her Kitty the Werewolf series, but Bannerless and The Wild Dead show that her talents are versatile. I really enjoyed these novels. I would very much like to read more of them."
--TOR.com

"The Wild Dead is a highly enjoyable and captivating sophomore entry in the Bannerless series."
--eeks of Doom

On Kitty Saves the World

"Longtime readers will enjoy the sense of payoff--especially when certain characters meet much-deserved fates and others get their happy-for-nows--and they'll be eager to see where Vaughn goes next."
--Publishers Weekly

"The open nature of Kitty's character and the way Vaughn makes her such a likeable character make this the only urban fantasy world where I want to read every book of the series."
―The Denver Post

"A great series for fans of the recent werewolf-vampire craze who want to move beyond Stephanie Meyer or Charlaine Harris."
―The Daily News (Galveston County, TX)

"Kitty Saves the World was a fun, fast . . . The ending feels like a new beginning and I'm good with that."
--Vampire Book Club

"None of these books are ever repetitive and they always have a great obstacle that the characters must overcome. This was no different and quite a fast paced read."
--Under the Covers

"Kitty Saves the World is probably my favorite final book in any series that I've read. I highly recommend [it]."
--All Things Urban Fantasy
