drey's thoughts:
I've been following Rachel Vincent's blog pretty much since I started blogging, but have only just now picked up her Shifters series. And I have to say, I shouldn't have waited so long--Stray was quite an enjoyable read, some of the hard scenes notwithstanding.

Faythe just can't catch a break. Even when she's gotten some freedom from the Pride, there's someone watching over her. And then she's summoned home. Which she responds to with a whole lot of attitude, attitude that she feels they deserve, until she finds out why she's been summoned home. Apparently someone has been kidnapping female werecats.

Here is where I expected Faythe to step up and help out. Which she does, but with attitude intact, which I didn't quite get. And the whole Marc-Jace-Faythe thing didn't quite ring true for me. Marc and Faythe, yes. Jace? Hmm... And while we're on the subject of love interests, whatever on earth happened to Andrew?

Anyway, Faythe gets herself well and truly tangled up in the whole kidnapping plot, and somehow manages to come out alive (which isn't really a spoiler, since this is a #1 book and that implies more Faythe, right?).

Stray is an entertaining read for those who live urban fantasy & shifters, but wanted something other than those of the canine variety. How much different are cats from dogs? Well, you'll just have to pick this up and find out.
