Publisher's Summary

"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) that are 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."

    "Really, really bad"

    If you think you will enjoy a story where the primary character, a 23 year old female, is held as a sexual slave by her family and peers. A story where her father has locked her in a cage in the past, and will do so again if she tries to leave home to live on her own. A story where her brothers and mother will assist the father in every way, without hesitation, you will enjoy this one a great deal.

    It's a bad story. I tried to listen to it 4 times and failed to finish it every time. Only a person who is really, really into female humiliation would even consider this one. It has no business in the fantasy category and is only romantic if you are into sadistic behavior.

    "Lots of promise, but not quite delivers"

    The universe of this story is great, the narrator is great. The plot and heroine of the story not so much. Her character tries too hard and is way over the top in my opinion to maintain a constant attitude of selfishness and contrariness over and above common sense. I've seen 6 year old children that were less self driven. Our heroine will sit at the cross roads of each story path and decide to do exactly what is the most stupid and selfish thing to do and then wail and lament over her bad luck as the result of her decisions. The devotion of friends and family are not balanced by the way she treats them. I'm not sure I will continue with rest of the books.

    "Love the Werecat Concept"

    I enjoyed listening to this book, the narrator was wonderful in rendering the characters and their thoughts, speech, actions. I found the prides interesting and within a short time I felt a kinship with the main pride. The female lead is refreshingly strong and feminine. What I would like to have experienced was a more in depth, vicarious involvement "as part of the pride" in their werecat form. I am hoping to find that in the sequel which I look forward to hearing!

    "Worth going on to the second title"

    This first Title, "Stray" started out pretty slow and I kept waiting for something to happen, anything to happen. I almost gave up on it but hate to not finish a book and the second half picked up and ended in a place that has intrigued me to go on to the second book, "Rogue". The main character Faith, annoys me some in her simplistic, stubborn view of the world and I get tired of her tough girl attitude but will continue on to see where this character might end up.
