Stray by Rachel Vincent

Summary: There are only eight breeding female werecats left . . .
And I'm one of them.

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 . . .

Review: I love Rachel's YA series (Soul Screamers) and when I saw this in my bookstore I bought it instantly. I finally got around to reading it and it was super amazing. Faythe as a character is really wonderful. I was a bit confused at first because there seemed to be some bad air between her and Marc. You finally figure out what went down between them, and I'm curious to see how it all works out. I'm also curious to see where Jace ends up in all of this because I quite like him. I loved all of the characters because they all had a good mixture of strength and softness to make them very likable. You get to know Faythe very well in this book and you get to know one of her big weaknesses. I hope we learn more about her brothers in the later books. The story was just fantastic and I loved how everything played out. This wasn't some dainty little introduction book where you just meet all the characters and nothing bad happens. Oh no. From the first chapter you are put in the mystery of the story and you get to figure everything out with Faythe and the Pride. I'm very excited to get my paws on Rogue, but I have to order it since my bookstore doesn't have it. Ahh the wait.
