Prey by Rachel Vincent Review

Summary: (Goodreads)

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.

I'm writing this review straight after finishing Prey; I'm still in a state of shock. Wow,

Everything that can happen does happen in this book. It all just piles up into one big mess that isn't sorted out until the very end where a bomb-shell is dropped on us readers.

I really loved reading Prey. It kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation all the way through.

I experienced every emotion there is to experience while reading. I cried A LOT at certain points in the book and laughed at others (I laughed a whole lot less than cried I have to say). Some parts took my breath away and others broke my heart.

But as I was beginning to think this book was flawless Faythe Sanders just had to go and ruin it.

After a disastrous event in the story Faythe makes a really, irremediable mistake of the stupid kind. Whilst reading it I was constantly thinking 'Faythe...don't you dare do it!' but she did it. Why, Faythe, WHY?!

After that everything I've previously had against Faythe came rushing back and put a damper on the whole story. Kind of ruined it to be honest. I seriously don't know how she's going to make up for what she did; if she can make up for it at all in fact. I feel sorry for Marc, that's all I have to say.

Aside from that little rant, the ending of the book, admittedly made up for Faythe Sanders lack of judgement and left me reeling in shock. Goodness, it was a big cliffhanger if I ever did see one.

A definite must read!

About the author:

A resident of San Antonio, Rachel Vincent has a BA in English and an overactive imagination, and consistently finds the latter to be more practical. She shares her workspace with two black cats (Kaci and Nyx) and her # 1 fan. Rachel is older than she looks-seriously-and younger than she feels, but remains convinced that for every day she spends writing, one more day will be added to her lifespan.

Prey (Werecats, Book 4)

My Rating: 9/10
