[Review] - Pride

Title: Pride
Author: Rachel Vincent
Series: Shifters
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Year: 2009

Summary and Blurb: Here's hoping cats do have nine lives...

I’m on trial for my life. 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 tabby cat. It's up to us to find and stop him. With my lover Marc's help, I think I can protect the vulnerable tabby from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.

If I survive my own trial…

Thoughts: This book pretty much continues where the last one (Rogue) ended. Faythe is in the fight for her life, cause of one small accident. I kinda have a love/hate relationship with Faythe. She is a great heroine, but sometimes her actions are really dumb. You just want to shake her.

I loved this story, I thought it was a much better than book two. It was entertaining, driven, shocking as well having some heartbreaking moments. Plus the plot wasn't all about Faythe this time. A new tabby has come on to the scene. I hope we'll see more of her in the next book. I was hoping for a different ending, but it could have been alot worse. I don't want to spoil too much, so if you read the book you'll understand what I mean. If your fan of shifter books, this is definitely one to check out.

Score: 4 Stars

  8. Anna,

  9. Ooh, I might check these out because they sound like the Kelley Armstrong series (which I also like).

  10. Hey Anna!

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I've read the first book of this series and loved it. I've got book 2 buried in the alps and will have to get to it.

    I'm happy to hear book 3 is worth the read.

    Great Review!!!


  11. Hey Anna! Great Review!

    I've been contemplating this series for a while. I find myself getting sucked into the covers. Sheesh, I'm such a cover freak. Anyway, I'm still on the fence about whether or not they're for me...

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    :) VFG

  12. Thanks for your thoughts. I will definitely need to check this series out the next time I get into a shifter mood!

  13. I had completely forgotten that I had book 2 on my shelf! I need to read that one soon so that I can get to this one. And yes, even in book 1 I wanted to shake Faythe! lol

  14. Hi Anna!
