#BoutofBooks #BBA Review: Rogue by Rachel Vincent (Audiobook)(Rating 4.5 Wine Glasses)

Posted August 26, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 12 Comments


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!

    LOVE this series!!! Faythe grows on you, even though in the first book you just wanna pop her πŸ˜›

  2. Smash Attack!

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!! So dang happy your are enjoying the series now. Faythe grows with each book. By the end, she's pretty damn phenomenal, but still imperfect, ya know? And wow, RV is going to rip your heart out. I am apologizing for the tears now, but damn if that doesn't make a book/series all the more amazing…

  3. Patti (Caught in a F

    Yay! I love this series and Faythe just continues to grow and mature though the books. This series is on my keeper shelf πŸ™‚

  4. Bookish Brunette

    I JUST bought this book! I don;t have any of the ones BEFORE it… So I need to work on that!! LOL

  5. Blodeuedd

    It is such a good series :DAwww Marc and Jace, kick-ass Faythe and all the rest. I hope you enjoy the rest too

  6. Melissa (Books and T

    Oh yes, I liked this one but will have to either reread it or just dive into the 3rd book. I forgot about the cliffie! *sigh* Yep, I need to pick up my copy of Pride soon!

    I've heard that Faythe is hard to take at first. But I think we're all capable of having those TSTL moments. And the inclusion of her family in this one sounds really great. Go Mama. πŸ™‚

  8. Jenny

    YAY!!! So glad you're enjoying this series a bit more now, Faythe's a lot to deal with in book one but she just grows on you as you read. She and Marc will definitely be making you cry as you read more, as will Jace and the rest of the family. Rachel's amazing at ripping your heart out and then slowly putting it back together. So excited for you to read/listen to the rest of the books!
