Story Overview:
When a teenaged girl goes missing, her mother calls Kit Colbana, scion of an ancient line of warriors  -- unfortunately, Kit's heritage doesn't impress the local wererats much. They're determined to make the girl one of their own, and Kit is going to need a big sword, a bright flashlight, and a helpful vampire to get her back
My Review:
I'm a huge fan of the Kit Colbana books, but for some reason never realized this novella was out there. This novella shows how Kit got her start "finding things" and moved on from working at TJ's bar back when she was still fairly traumatized by her upbringing...not that she's ever truly recovered from that. This novella also introduced Jude and Kit's relationship with him. *shudder*

It's definitely a novella that fans of the series should read just because it provides early insight. It's also super-short...basically one incident so it makes for an easy read. And bonus...it gives fans, like me, a quick Kit fix while waiting for the next book to release.
