Stray by Rachael Vincent

From the Publisher

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 . . .

My Comments:

Urban fantasy is one of my favorite genres. This is a new author there has been a lot of buzz about on the Book Group and I was really looking forward to giving it a read.

At first I found the main character, Faythe difficult to like. She was immature, selfish and irresponsible. But she grows up! And it’s really a treat to go on that journey with her as she does.

The book starts off with a bang and I’ve found that books that start off that way are generally going to be a page turner all the way and I wasn’t disappointed.

I’m not generally a fan of books featuring Weres. I prefer vampires where my urban fantasy is concerned putting up with weres because they usually tag along with my favorite vampires. These are some weres that I really enjoyed on their own merit. I like that they are werecats and not the common werewolf. The author was really fantastic at capturing cat attitude and mannerisms in her characters. It gave a lot of realism to her characters.
