Review: Prey


This is the 4th book in the Werecats series by Rachel Vincent.

Book Blurb:

Sometimes playing cat and mouse is no game.

Play? Right. My Pride is under fire from all sides, my father's authority is in question and my lover is in exile. Which means I haven't laid eyes on Marc's gorgeous face in months. And with a new mother and an I-know-everything teenager under my protection, I don't exactly have time to fantasize about ever seeing him again.

Then our long-awaited reunion is ruined by a vicious ambush by strays. Now our group is under attack, Marc is missing and I will need every bit of skill and smarts to keep my family from being torn apart. Forever.

This is one of my all time favorite series. :)

Faythe Sanderson is a tabby and in the Werecat world tabby cats are rare - they are pampered and protected because they hold the ability to birth the next Werecat generation. Faythe wants no part of that and her father agrees to a certain extent. He has groomed her to take his place as Alpha when the time comes and trained her as an Enforcer for the time being. She is one kick ass Werecat - but man, she just can't seem to catch a break.

It seems that Pride politics are getting in the way of regular day to day activities and Faythe is now being pulled in 2 different directions. The young tabby Kaci refuses to shift - and it is Faythe's responsibility to remedy that or Kaci may die and then Marc comes up missing and Faythe is determined to find him - dead or alive.

Pride politics wants all tabby cats in their place and in their minds that place is home and pregnant and some Pride factions will go to any lengths to get their hands on a tabby - even if it means starting a Pride war.

I give Prey and the entire Werecat series 5 out of 5 stars. :)

Hi Michelle!

This one of series I plan trying to get read this year. Must be good, especially with your 5 stars rating for the entire series.

Dottie,

What a wonderful mail day!! I love this series...and really, who needs sleep? LOL

Donna,

I really think you will enjoy this series. It is not really a romance, though there is romantic moments and sexual tension - it is more of an action/adventure in my opinion. LOL Faythe is forever getting into one thing or the other and more often than not the easiest and quickest way out is to fight.
