Rachel Vincent – Pride
The blurb: I’m on trial for my life. Falsely 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 tabbycat. It’s up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc’s help, I “think” I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.
“If” I survive my own trial…

What did I think? I really enjoyed this book. It had a plot that kept you on the edge of your seat and there are some great new characters – some of them you’ll love and some you will loathe.
Faythe..has a big mouth. I found this irritating in the first book but in this one I could understand why she let rip on occassion especially when she is up against such prejudice and sexism. You will want to scream at the injustice set against her with the trial. It’s just not fair but it creates an insight into the farce that is Werecat politics. This might all sound a tad negative but it’s very entertaining drama. I think that by the end of this book she did grow up because she lost something…and gains something else.
Some great scenes with Marc and I glad that this book demonstrated how the Strays have it bad. If they were only guided or educated by the elitist Pride then perhaps the situation wouldn’t be so bad. They would have more control but they are too ignorant to see it. However, Faythe is starting to catch on…seriously, Faythe maybe a hot head but it is apparent to me that the females in this series would make far better Alphas than the men.
Great book, full of twists, turns and emotional outbreaks…can’t wait to read the next one!
