Pride by Rachel Vincent Review

Summary: (Taken from Goodreads)

I'm on trial for my life. Falsely accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend - and killing him to cover up the crime.Infecting a human is one of the three capital offences recognised by the Pride - along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.

I'm two for three. A goner.

Now we've discovered a rogue stray terrorising the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. It's up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc's help, I think I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.

If I survive my own trial.

First off, I have to say, the friend that recommended this series to me was right in saying it gets better with every book; I couldn't put this one down.

Faythe Sanders has been brought before the council charged with infecting her human ex-boyfriend and then killing him to cover up the initial crime, the first of which, is punishable by death.

During her trial however, Faythe gets the opportunity to prove she is worth more than her uterus when a group of strays are reported on the mountainside. Faythe soon realises that the strays are in search of a wild tabbycat and when said tabbycat is dropped off right at their door, Faythe desperately tries to prove she is capable of handling both the tabbycat, the strays and the underhandedness of one of the Alphas.

Faythe continues to improve as a character. She is forced to give up what she loves most and in doing so has to make plenty of sacrifices.

I especially love how every book is a complete continuation of the last; I felt like I hadn't stopped reading Rogue as Pride started right where Rogue left off.

Moments in this book left me with tears in my eyes. I could sympathise completely with most characters in this book it was written so well.

Over all I thought it was a brilliant read that left me eager for the next book in the series Prey.

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.

Pride (Shifters)
