Publisher's Summary

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 one is somewhat better than the first 3 in the series, but it turned into such a tearjerker for the entire second half of the book (I won't say why, but sure jerked my tears), that I will get a better synopsis of the next book before I buy. I don't read urban fantasy or paranormal romance to cry for the whole second half of the book.

Another premise of this series is that Faythe's father is grooming her to take over the Pride. Totally bizarre since she has made very few smart moves, even in this 4th book. She keeps saying she is maturing, but not so I could notice. Also, she is an "enforcer" for the pride, a dangerous job. But "tabbys" are supposed to be rare and protected. So where's the logic here?

The narrator does a pretty good job. I'm still interested in this series, but mostly for the men as I cannot bring myself to like or respect Faythe.

Enough already!

I have been a Rachel Vincent fan since the inception of the first werecat book, Stray. I have enjoyed each moment of the tale as Faythe Sanders (protagonist) learns the ins and outs of her relationship and her never ending mistakes (some of the relationship kind, some not). I was sorely tempted to give this book only three stars, because the relationship tussle between Marc and Jayce has become a distraction from the story which has only gotten more interesting.

Faythe's books have been rife with her personal issues involving her love life....s and the mistakes she makes. Again, and again. It has come to a point where it has become a distraction to the rest of the story which has picked up and become fully engaging instead of the I cannot make up my mind, or poor me story themes that many of the previous books lived off of.

This book had personal tragedy layered on top of accident on top of betrayal. It was great to see Faythe grow up so much since even the last book (except in her ability to fix her relationship). I look forward to reading, or listening to the future adventures of Faythe Sanders but with a council's inward bickering, perhaps war. With inter relationships are jockeyed for position it has become a let down to have to endure the sophomoric love life that Ms. Vincent writes.

While perhaps one of the better additions to the library of Faythe Sanders "werecat" collection it could also be the straw that breaks the werecat's back. If we could move on, and resolve the relationship drama for the protagonist there is still so much left that is interesting to fill volumes of this ever increasingly Machiavellian tale. So many extra-Faythe relationships to crush on and play with. Let us let this part of Faythe grow up as well, and make the story all that better in the future. Check this book out, and hope Ms. Vincent keeps the direction she has started, and drops the teenage angst for these almost 30ish something toys.
