Review: Stray ( Shifters #1 ) by Rachel Vincent

Title:               Stray ( Shifters #1 )
Author:          Rachel Vincent
Pages:             618
Catagory:      Fantasy, shifters

The story:

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….

The view of a book addict:

The first book of a series I think I’m going to love! The main character Faythe doesn’t let anyone tell her what she should do with her life and I like that kind of heroine in a book. Although I had a little trouble getting into the book at first because of all the diffrent characters and their role in Faythe’s life, once into the story I didn’t want to stop reading.
I loved the storyline and I caught myself thinking: “just one more chapter” every time I reached the end of a chapter.

The verdict of a book addict:

So this was the first book in the shifters series and I just can’t wait to start reading the next book. If you like the Night huntress series and Anita blake ( at least the first Anita Blake novels ) you’re going to love this series.

Total of Ratties:

  5. Thanks for hopping by my blog! So glad to see you are enjoying the Shifters series. It's one of my favorites! If you enjoyed Stray you will absolutely love the rest of the books - they are oh so steamy and thrilling! And yes, Faythe is a kick ass character. I love how independent and stubborn she is - reminds me a little of myself ;)

    Can't wait to see your reviews of the rest of the books.

  7. This sounds good! 618 pages though? That's big for the first book in a series. Makes me wonder how long the others are.

  8. The others aren't that long at least the second one isn't. I'm reading the second book now and it has 394 pages
