It's all come down to this, following the discoveries made by Cormac in Low Midnight, Kitty and her allies are ready to strike. But, when their assassination attempt on the evil vampire Dux Bellorum fails, Kitty finds herself running out of time. The elusive vampire lord has begun his apocalyptic end game, and Kitty still doesn't know where he will strike.
Meanwhile, pressure mounts in Denver as Kitty and her pack begin to experience the true reach of Dux Bellorum's cult. Outnumbered and outgunned at every turn, the stakes have never been higher for Kitty. She will have to call on allies both old and new in order to save not just her family and friends, but the rest of the world as well.

Often Authors have a Playlist for their books do you have a set Playlist for Kitty Norville Series.
(If so Please Share it with use and if Possible give iTunes or even YouTube Links for each Song.)

It just so happens that every single one of the thirteen Kitty novels -- plus the Greatest Hits short story collection! -- has a playlist published at the beginning.  Besides being a werewolf, Kitty is a radio DJ who parlays her late-night shift into a talk-radio advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged.  It was entirely natural to include with each story the kind of music she might have played during her alt-radio days.  In fact, I listen to music while I write, and I really enjoyed seeking out songs that fit the mood or story, and then crafting the playlists as if they're the soundtrack to each book.
At this point, if you combined all fourteen playlists together, we're talking close to two hundred songs.   I try not to repeat -- but I have included several versions of the Bach piece "Sheep May Safely Graze."  Some of my favorite bands that I've featured:  The Clash, Oingo Boingo, Pet Shop Boys, Cyndi Lauper, the Pretenders, and Creedence Clearwater Revival.  A lot of 80's music is represented, but I try to draw on all different times and types.  I also have a few songs I vowed would never appear on a playlist:  Duran Duran's "Hungry Like the Wolf," the Shangri-La's "Leader of the Pack."  And I imagine Kitty is also really tired of hearing Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London."
Here's the first song on the playlist for KITTY SAVES THE WORLD, which seemed an appropriate way to introduce the finale of this whole crazy series:

Traveling Wilburys, "End of the Line"
