From Goodreads: Okay, so cats don t always land on their feet.
I know that better than most. Since rejoining the Pride, I ve made big decisions and even bigger mistakes: the kind paid for with innocent lives. As the first and only female enforcer, I have plenty to prove to my father, the Pride, and myself. And with murdered toms turning up in our territory, I m working harder than ever, though I always find the energy for a little after-hours recreation with Marc, my partner both on- and off-duty.
But not all of my mistakes are behind me. We re beginning to suspect that the dead are connected to a rash of missing human women and that they can all be laid at my feet–two or four, take your pick. And one horrible indiscretion may yet cost me more than I can bear…
NOTE: I get why people love this series now. Rogue hooked me where Stray almost scared me off. I am glad that I am listening to this series in audio form. I think Jennifer Van Dyck did an excellent job with the narration.
What I Loved: As much I did not like her at all in Stray, I have to say that Faythe has grown by leaps and bounds in this book. Her story is captivating and heartbreaking! Marc is a perfect counterpart to her with his own hangups and insecurities. I have a feeling they are going to break my heart a few times over the series. I have to say though, let’s hear it for the Mama of the Pride! I love Faythe’s parents in general (again kudos to Rachel Vincent for the strong family core) but it was really Mama that kicked butt and took names in this book. I also loved the addition of Minx to the mix and hope she sticks around.
What I Liked: Brothers! You have to love them, want to kill them, and then appreciate them for everything they add to your life. Rachel Vincent is amazing at bringing a slate of characters in and making them all important. I am very interested in each of their stories and how they play out over the course of the series.
Complaints: Cliffhanger (sort of)! More like I immediately wanted to jump to book 3 (Pride) which I guess was the evil plan all along!
Why I gave it a 4.5: Did I mention I get why everyone is in love with the series now? What a great ride and can’t wait to read/listen to more!
