From Goodreads: I’m on trial for my life. Falsely accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend and killing him to cover up the crime. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride—along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.
I’m two for three. A goner.
Now we’ve discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. It’s up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc’s help, I think I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.
If I survive my own trial…

Note: Hard to believe a series that I barely stuck with after the first book because of not liking the heroin has come such a long way! I LOVED this book and at this point I am totally hooked.
What I LOVED: Faythe has come a long way baby! I can honestly say that I really care what happens to her. The way she handled the 13 year old tabby is what really turned the tide for me. That entire storyline was magnificent. Pride really yanked at all my emotional heart strings. Faythe’s dad has always been a favorite of mine. In Pride, he is absolutely, by far, my favorite character. What he does for his Pride and Faythe is just the epitome of true love and loyalty.
What I LIKED: I can’t give anything away but I am trying to figure out where the Malone story is going. I know where I would like it to go (Paging Hannibal) but it is adding an extra layer of conflict that is interesting to see play out. The back and forth between Faythe and Marc is playing out slowly but I feel their connection. Their love story is secondary to me but truly important to the story. Marc is a fantastic character and a good representation of what is possible with a Stray. I really liked Keller, the bruin. I hope he shows up again through out the series.
Why I gave is a 4.75: This book knocked me on my *ss and really pulled every emotion out of me. I can’t wait to read the rest!
