Sometimes playing cat and mouse is no game‚ĶPlay? 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.


Where do I begin? So much went on in this book that I cannot seem to wrap my head around it all. Marc ends up getting abducted towards the beginning of the book and his trail of blood in his house leads Faythe and a couple of other pride toms on a wild chase to find him before it’s too late. Meanwhile the sh*t hits the fan as Faythe’s father tries to keep Malone at bay from overthrowing him on the council and booting him as Alpha. That isn’t even everything but what fun would it be if I spoiled everything?

Like I said above, this book was jam packed. I could not seem to put this book down because every time I tried, I would pick it back up a few minutes later. The detail that Rachel portrays in her novels just blows me away. I can picture everything clearly in my mind with no problems, even the partial shifts.

The closeness of the family is still front and center. Even Kaci seems to be becoming part of the family and is comfortable around Ethan and Jace. With the tragedy at hand they all come together to help find Marc.

Kaci is afraid to shift and is vastly becoming sick as the days pass. Werecats need to shift regularly in order to live. Faythe is sitting down with Kaci in her room and trying to convince her to shift and how after she shifts and gets healthy she can go to school like a normal kid.
Kaci- “Normal! What the hell is that?”
I groaned at her language. How the hell had she managed to pick up all of my bad habits and none of my good ones?
Faythe- “You know you can’t talk like that in front of the Alpha, right?”
Kaci rolled both big hazel eyes at me. “You do.”
Damn it!
From somewhere near the front door of the house, my mother laughed out loud, having obviously heard the entire exchange. She’d always said she hoped I had a kid just like me, but neither of us had expected that to happen quite so soon.
