Cormac, the Kitty Norville series' most popular supporting character, stars in his first solo adventure.
Carrie Vaughn's Low Midnight spins out of the series on the wave of popularity surrounding Kitty’s most popular supporting character, Cormac Bennett, a two-minded assassin of the paranormal who specializes in killing lycanthropes. In his first solo adventure, Cormac, struggling with a foreign consciousness trapped inside him, investigates a century-old crime in a Colorado mining town which could be the key to translating a mysterious coded diary…a tome with secrets that could shatter Kitty’s world and all who inhabit it. With a framing sequence that features Kitty Norville herself, Low Midnight not only pushes the Kitty saga forward, but also illuminates Cormac’s past and lays the groundwork for Kitty's future.

Kitty I want to thank you for stopping by to give me this wonderful opportunity I won’t keep you long I know it must be rough being a pack alpha keeping everyone in check so to speak I have a few questions I’d like to know a bit more about.
Kitty what are your thoughts and feelings on being Alpha of your pack?
Would it be ironic to say that it's like herding cats? I think that's irony, and not just sarcasm. Seriously, though, it's not a place I ever planned on being, but it was either step up or watch people get hurt. I get a lot of help -- I'm never shy about asking for help.
How did you deal with the loss of your Best Friend T.J.?
I try to remember that he'd be proud of me, and that if it's at all possible for him to be out there looking out for me, that's what he's doing.
What thoughts where running through your mind when you killed Carl?
Actually, I didn't kill Carl -- the rest of the pack did that for me. Remember that asking for help thing? But when I killed Meg? I actually don't remember thinking much of anything at all. I just wanted my friends to come of it all okay.
Is there any truth to General William T. Sherman being a werewolf during his march to the sea? Have you thought about investigating further on that matter?
There must have been at least one full moon during the march, so he would have had to change then. I need to look into stories about where that might have happened. He had a nervous breakdown early on in the war, and I believe that was when he was infected with lycanthropy, and had to take time to recover. After that, he brought a new energy and determination to his command. He was definitely an alpha. But I think while commanding troops he would have had to stay human as much as possible, in order to maintain that command.
Will you ever be rid of Roman and his “Long Game”?
How did you and Cormac overcome the tension between the two of you when you first started dating his cousin Ben?
Well, since Cormac went to prison at about the same time, there wasn't as much tension as you might think. Mostly, priorities shifted -- other things, like making sure he stayed alive, became way more important.
How do you keep the content on the Midnight Hour engaging to your listeners?
I listen to what they want to hear and keep the phone lines open!
How are you and Ben helping Cormac deal with his ghost Amelia?
It's a cliche, but we just have to be supportive. It's not like Cormac ever asks for help, or lets us help him except when things get really bad. He's stubborn like that.
