Pride Shifters #3 1st Read March 20102nd Read August 2015Original ReviewThe review for this book will include major spoilers for anyone who hasn't yet read the first 2 books Stray Rogue so please don't read any further if you're new to the series The end of the last book saw Faythe kill her ex boyfriend Andrew in self defence this is the same ex boyfriend who she had accidentally infected with her ability to partially shift Now she is on trial for both of these crimes and if she is found guilty she will be facing the death penalty As far as the council is concerned she is guilty until she can prove her innocence and unless she can convince them that she infected Andrew by accident she is going to be in serious trouble Considering she is the only werecat in history who claims to be able to do a partial shift and all the witnesses she has have good reason to lie for her she is going to have to show the council that it can be done She has yet to learn how to do this on command though so is finding it difficult to demonstrate the ability The trial is being held on neutral territory 2 of the 3 alpha judges seem determined to push for the death penalty It soon becomes clear that there is to this than their first seemed and they are using the situation against Faythe's father for political reasons While the trial is ongoing they soon become aware of strays causing problems in the area 2 humans are missing and they need to solve the mystery before the human search parties find them There is so much going on in this book that I just couldn't put it down Rachel Vincent is an expert at complex plots and it is impossible to guess everything that is going to happen I loved the developments in Faythe Marc's relationship but was heartbroken at the situation they find themselves in at the end of the book I am going to have to read Prey now just so I can find out what happens Rachel Vincent has a well earned place in my favorite authors list this series is the best one I've come across for ages2nd ReadI have been totally loving my binge reread of this series I think I'm actually enjoying it even the second time around o Pride continues shortly after Rogue left off Faythe is on trial for her actions at the end of the previous book However it seems like her entire life is put under a magnifying glass and all her mistakes have come back to bite her on the ass once again At first Faythe feels worried that the verdict will be for her to be caged or declawed By being declawed she would be left helpless to defend herself for life But she soon finds out that execution is also on the plate as well especially in the eyes of a particular Alpha judging her trial However a group of strays interrupt the proceedings after several hikers go missing nearby They also find what seems to be a female stray in the territory Add to the mix several attacks to Faythe by the strays while she's trying to help and she doesn't know what to do with Marc after their relationship has changed in the previous book It's definitely one roller coaster ride after another in this latest installmentThese books seem to get progressively better and better There's something happening every minute of this book and it all kept me riveted The endings are always big and full of surprises and this one's no different This one in particular left me dying to know what happens next I know I know a lot of you really don’t like Faythe After all she is impulsive is known to run off at the mouth and sometimes she does incredibly stupid things But I like Faythe I like how her character grows and matures with each subseuent book Yes she still is impulsive Yes she still lacks a good brain filter However she is beginning to understand that her actions have conseuences not only to herself but to her Pride as a whole Pride starts off with Faythe facing the conseuences of an accidental creation of a stray and his death She is brought before the council tribunal a kind of werecat kangaroo court In werecat law a defendant is always presumed guilty and must prove their innocence The tribunal is not going well and Faythe comes to the slow realization that her life hangs in the balance and that the council wants to execute her for her actions should she not prove herself useful to themThe tribunal does not go smoothly There are many interruptions The local Bruin Keller barges in to tell the cats to stay off of his territory The tribunal stops so that the werecats can investigate They realize that a group of strays are wreaking havoc in the area and attacking humans a big no no in the werecat world Keller also captures and drops off a female cat Enter the mysterious teenage tabby Kaci As the tribunal continues there are further interruptions It becomes apparent that the tribunal was just a way for one of the Alphas to jockey for position and to possibly enlarge his Pride The werecat politicking and maneuvering was especially devious I did not like some of the tribunal council members at allAnd Marc Oh I felt so sad for him I’ll leave it at that I must say that I truly love Faythe’s father Greg He is one of those gifted politicians and he plays the game very well He is able to see the big picture I am very interested to see what transpires in the next book There was lots of action lots of injuries and lots of fur flying in this book I can’t wait to read the next book There must be some hidden golden rule somewhere that I tend to fall in love with Urban Fantasy series by the third book I don't know what it is maybe the writer is in the middle of getting the story even better or else I've just fallen in love with the characters? Have no idea only in this one I do know it's not because I love the main character I actually loathe her I was hoping that by this point in the series she would have evolved calmed down and grew up a little Instead she's still abrasive and makes me cringe at some of what she says and how silly she is in predicaments but it was toned down a little this time Marc is likeable now although I always liked him a decent bit The mother and Manx aren't really in this one as the book takes place in a neutral meeting place for the shifter council They were missed but we get lots of the father who I always dug and the brothers who are funI'm not usually into shifter internal politics but the maneuvering here was actually interesting There is a big change in the status of two of the main characters so there is a small cliffhanger with that at the end There's a lot of talking in this one compared to the action of others but it works and pacing doesn't lag somehowRachel Vincent has a creative way with words and dialogue that works It's easy to envision the characters you're reading about Their motivations are clear without needing spelled out She must like the main character herself and I know some other readers do but for me she's the only downfall of the storyI'm curious about the next book as it's clear there's a lot of changes in store and potential dangers to the family not just Faith herself 5 Pride Stars Well holy moly this book had it all Heart break action someone to hate someone to love I can’t get enough of Faythe trouble seems to like her as well and her mouth also gets her into some trouble too This book really has so much to offer I want Mark to kick some serious ass And the Alpha has a fight coming I can’t want to see how this is all going to play out And the girl wow that was hard to hear but we defiantly have some exciting twist come out of this book On to the next You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion and I am allowed to have it hey Faythe or whatever your name is my poor marc 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 three capital offenses recognized by the Pride—along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a humanI'm two for three A gonerNow we've discovered a rogue stray terrorizing 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 councilIf I survive my own trial So far this is actually my favorite in the series I liked how the plot wasn't all about a mysterycrime so it had a different feel from the first two books I love political intrigue and the pack hierarchydynamics are starting to get really interesting I'm heartbroken over poor Marc Malone needs to die What a jerk This was actually a super fun book to read and I think I preferred it to book 2 I really like Faythe as a heroine I feel like I can relate to her The plot was a bit slow in the beginning but as soon as they found Kaci and things started happening I flew through this The ending was sad in spite of me not being a huge Marc lover I'm really looking forward to starting book 4 next month
