Good Finish To the Series

I read all the Werecats books and, although I got a little frustrated with Faythe at times, it was a series I had to see through to the end. Good storytelling & narration.

Bittersweet

Tensions are running high for Faythe and her beaus in Rachel Vincent's sixth and final edition of her shifters series. And let me tell you all hell breaks loose in Alpha. Malone, again finds a way to weasel out of punishment for his crimes, and come out on top... of the council. Marc, and Jace's lives are in the balance, and Faythe is in jeopardy of loosing her claws. The South Central Pride is being backed into a corner and ready to erupt.

Like the title and cover art suggests we follow Faythe in her heart wrenching ascension to alpha. We're also along for her emotional dilemma as she chooses a mate. We are privy to her hard fought and failed attempts to be seen as more than a womb in the male dominated boys club that is the council. And Malone is not making it easy for her, challenging and taking away everything that her father worked for. War is a given, many will die, and the end will come to soon.

My biggest criticism is that even though the story resolved I feel like there is so much more to this world and these characters that can be explored. Faythe may have set into motion a great deal of change, but they have so much possibility for further books. She seems like the best point of view for the political policies that will arise with the first female alpha. It will be interesting to see if Vincent will continue with a spin off with Kaci.

Overall I liked this book it was very entertaining. There was action, surprises, and heartache. Alone it was wonderful, but as part of the series I wasn't satisfied. I found it more of an opening then the ending it was meant to be. It was bittersweet. Good yet unfinished.

Loved th whole series

I loved the entire Werecats series... even though this didn't end how I wanted it to. Faythe evolved as a character and I will miss her and the whole gang.

This is a review for the whole series

You probably already saw other reviewers and I do agree that Faythe Sanders is irritating and in my opinion not a strong female character to me she is extremely immature, I don’t like her at alI I only finished the series cas I liked the secondary characters and the narrator of the series is truly great.

Great Story telling

The author has a gift for character development and telling an amazing story. However, a majority of the conflicts in the entire series stems from the main character "Faythe's" own immaturity/stupidity. It makes it very hard for me as an individual to truly fall in love with the main character. All that aside, the narration is great and the flow of the book leaves nothing to be desired.

The book SUCKS

The main female character was annoying, pathetic, whiny, made the same mistakes over and over. There was just no way to like her at all. I will admit that she did improve a small fraction in the end. But it was to little to late. The series just sucked. The only reason I even read to the end was because I liked 2 of the secondary characters. Nate who gets stupidly killed off and Jace who was a sweetie.

I wouldn't bother wasting your time reading this series.

Whiney heroine, conflicted for six books

Faythe "with a 'Y'and an 'E'" is an indulged Daddy's girl who, when confronted with the realities of her life, always wants it both ways and wants Daddy Alpha to fix the injustices.

After six books, one would think that Faythe would learn to toughen up about or walk away.

Hard to believe she expects to become the Alpha.

Hard to get through it

I had to try two different times to get through this one. Faith's inner dialogue was too much and overdone for me. Also, her indecision regarding relationships was annoying. Love turning romantic during times of crisis is understandable especially when a friendship is already in place. The support and love from that can grow, but realistically it was a situational romance that the character had to grow to understand the difference. So the concept was understandable and fit in with the situation. None of her more experienced adult "advisors" gave her the perspective of, this is a stressful time of too many horrible changes happening too fast, to consider. This led to dealing with the whinning repetitive inner dialogue that was distracting from the story.
Other than that, I liked the overall story and the narrator.
