Review: Stray by Rachel Vincent




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...

Purchase: Amazon ~ Kindle



"But I'd take a slashed throat over a broken neck any day. At least that way I'd get to bleed all over his shoes. One final fuck-you before I died."

I stepped out of my comfort zone with this book and I'm glad I did. Normally, I stick to vampire books if I want to read outside of the romance category. I saw this series on my local Craigslist site and purchased it deciding I'd give it a go since she was selling the series cheap. I am extremely glad I ran across that post!

Faythe is a rebel, which every young woman has a phase of. She got away from her Pride by convincing her father to let her go to college. I love the major she chose to pursue, and if you can't guess it... it's literature! Faythe is a bookworm, like myself. I always love it when I can be on a personal level with the main character and I love having things in common with them.

"Ask for the impossible, then settle instead for what you really wanted in the first place."

There is a sort of love triangle between Faythe, Marc and Jace. I, of course, was rooting for Marc the entire time. They were together before so I was hoping she'd give him the second chance he deserved. I like how Marc is possessive and protective over her. It's always nice when there's an alpha who knows how to treat his woman. 

"The moment the door opened I knew an ass-kicking was inevitable. Whether I'd be giving it or receiving it was still a bit of a mystery."

The action is better than I expected. There is an abundance of "the edge of your seat" moments. There were times I could not put the book down for anything. There's plenty of blood and gore for those who love it.

I'm ready to find out what awaits Faythe and Marc in New Orleans!
