Publisher's Summary

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."

Prey

This one is somewhat better than the first 3 in the series, but it turned into such a tearjerker for the entire second half of the book (I won't say why, but sure jerked my tears), that I will get a better synopsis of the next book before I buy. I don't read urban fantasy or paranormal romance to cry for the whole second half of the book.

Another premise of this series is that Faythe's father is grooming her to take over the Pride. Totally bizarre since she has made very few smart moves, even in this 4th book. She keeps saying she is maturing, but not so I could notice. Also, she is an "enforcer" for the pride, a dangerous job. But "tabbys" are supposed to be rare and protected. So where's the logic here?

The narrator does a pretty good job. I'm still interested in this series, but mostly for the men as I cannot bring myself to like or respect Faythe.

Enough already!

I have been a Rachel Vincent fan since the inception of the first werecat book, Stray. I have enjoyed each moment of the tale as Faythe Sanders (protagonist) learns the ins and outs of her relationship and her never ending mistakes (some of the relationship kind, some not). I was sorely tempted to give this book only three stars, because the relationship tussle between Marc and Jayce has become a distraction from the story which has only gotten more interesting.

Faythe's books have been rife with her personal issues involving her love life....s and the mistakes she makes. Again, and again. It has come to a point where it has become a distraction to the rest of the story which has picked up and become fully engaging instead of the I cannot make up my mind, or poor me story themes that many of the previous books lived off of.

This book had personal tragedy layered on top of accident on top of betrayal. It was great to see Faythe grow up so much since even the last book (except in her ability to fix her relationship). I look forward to reading, or listening to the future adventures of Faythe Sanders but with a council's inward bickering, perhaps war. With inter relationships are jockeyed for position it has become a let down to have to endure the sophomoric love life that Ms. Vincent writes.

While perhaps one of the better additions to the library of Faythe Sanders "werecat" collection it could also be the straw that breaks the werecat's back. If we could move on, and resolve the relationship drama for the protagonist there is still so much left that is interesting to fill volumes of this ever increasingly Machiavellian tale. So many extra-Faythe relationships to crush on and play with. Let us let this part of Faythe grow up as well, and make the story all that better in the future. Check this book out, and hope Ms. Vincent keeps the direction she has started, and drops the teenage angst for these almost 30ish something toys.

Annoyed

I am almost over this series. I don't know how much drama I can deal with anymore. I almost gave up on the whole series in one scene. Cheating is not cool, and I have lost all respect for Faith as a character. I don't know if I will be ale to finish the series, other than the serious breach of morals, it was a good book.

Each one seems better than the last!

I absolutely LOVE the entire Werecat Series. Rachel Vincent has created a seducing world that 'lies just beneath the surface' of our real one. It is believable, inventive, full of intrigue, and consistently exciting. I have been placing her 'scheduled release' dates in my calendar so I have the next book as soon as it arrives! Faith is a likeable & rebellious character with honorable morals and her story, life, and relationships are ALL interesting! Can't wait for the next book in March of 2010! *There are sex scenes - not frequent or overly prolific (more romantic in nature) but still detailed & I recommend the reader be at least 18.

I kind of hate the main character!

Wish I never started this series! What a horrible woman! She does not deserve Marc!

Can't wait to read the next one!

I liked the first couple of books in the series, but I think Pride (prequel to Prey) and Prey are the best so far. Yes, the lead character is angry and doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut - but it really doesn't detract from the overall story, which was more involved here than in any of the previous books. I am really interested to see what happens next! If you enjoy supernatural sci-fi, you will enjoy these.

So close to growing up

This story showed the future alpha developing, the reluctant lover understanding her part in being separated from her man, making up for her selfish past. Then she does a 180 right back to her Stray roots, defying her alpha and putting herself and pride-mates into serious danger just days after a family death. I was yelling at the phone in disgust. Hopefully this really is the last time, or I may not be able to finish the series.
