There are only eight breeding female werecats left . . .
And I’m one of them.
I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.
Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.
I’d been warned about Strays — werecats without a Pride, constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female, and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.
This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back . . . for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I’m no meek kitty. I’ll take on whatever — and whoever — I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays — ’cause I got claws, and I’m not afraid to use them . . .
I got this book as a R.A.K (Random Act of Kindess) from the lovely Vanessa @ the BookSoumates and I was so so happy to finally start reading this series! I tried several times to start RV’s YA series but never really got into it, but when I read the synopsis from this series I was caught.
See, I don’t have a big thing for werewolves (unlike my lovely friend Greta..) but WereCats..weell that sounds sexy to me!! If you ask me Dogs or Cats I will always choose the cat!
Well getting to the point, I really enjoyed this start in the series! Marc is really reeealllyyyy sexy and me needs a possessive strong alpha male! Yet here we also deal also with a alpha girl Faythe which makes the story even more interesting.
Faythe comes from an old family of werecats and her father is the big Alpha of their pride. But Faythe always wanted to get away and started college against her parents wish.When Stray’s (werecats that were not born werecats but were rather “bitten”) start to kidnap young female cats, her father orders her home afraid something might happen to her. Well, Faythe is not happy with this situation since she hates being considered defenseless. But here, she has no choice!
Faythe is an incredible complex person and I loved that. Truly not without flaws she’s sometimes stupid and stuck between being a teen and acting mature. But, she knows that and tried to act more and more like an adult and take responsibilities for her own actions. I liked seing her grow and I’m most excited to see what will happen with her in the next books.
Marc.. Oh my Marc… he’s wonderful!!!! He loves Faythe deeply and tries hard to get her back. They split up after it got to serious for Faythe and she run away to College. But Marc never gave up and would do anything to get her back.
Seeing those two strong cats battle to be together was awesome to follow!
The story itself got really intense during the end and Mrs. Vincent spared you with nothing. You have to be prepared for some absolutely cruel scenes.
Absolutely worth reading and a captivating start in a series! But be prepared for mature content!
