Being the first female werecat enforcer isn't easy. Scars accumulate, but I'm stronger in so many ways. 
As for my personal life? It's complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother's death and my father's impeachment, it's all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe. 
With the body count rising and treachery everywhere, my instincts tell me to look before I leap. But sometimes a leap of faith is the only real option...
Wow, I never get enough of this series. I've been flying through this series and now I only have one more book to read. Which makes me extremely sad. I tried to read this one slow so I could try and preserve some of it, but it didn't work out too well.

The usual craziness happens in this book, if you've read the series you'll understand what I'm talking about. Faythe and her Pride just never get a break. As soon as some sort of calmness sets in, something happens to blow that all up. But Faythe pulls through it. She still tries to keep a positive mind when all of this craziness is going on.

She has so many problems going on; with her Pride and her heart. There is a little bit of a love triangle going on, okay a big triangle and it's bad because not only is her head screwed up because of it, but mine was too! I love Marc, but I really like Jace as well. I wish Jace could find someone that is his true love.

Not going to go into anymore of that. There is a new species that is talked about throughout the beginning of the series, but never really show up until now and they are scary! Intriguing, but very scary.

Overall, I don't want to write much to giveaway any spoilers. It's very hard not to. So I'm just going to leave you saying that it was amazing, as always. I can't get enough of this series and I highly recommend it. Great characters, great plots, and great romance. =) And it's definitely not sugarcoated. =)

Note & Warning: This is an Adult series. There are some scenes  in this book that may not be suitable for those under the age of 16. 

The sixth and final book in the series is called Alpha. It was released on October 1, 2010. Read my reviews for the rest of the series: Stray (#1), Rogue (#2), Pride (#3), and Prey (#4).  


  1. I really need to pick up this series - I think I have it some where. I adore her YA Soul Screamers series, so I need to read these soon :) Happy to hear this one is great.

    1. Yes, you do! It is definitely my my top number one Adult series with shapeshipter type species in it. I've only read the first book in her Soul Screamers series, but I did really like it. I need to pick up the second one soon.

  2. I've been with the series since the beginning and have felt all the way through that the books are entertaining, but the main character is a chore. In this book, I actively detested her.
