Synopsis from Goodreads
Okay, so cats don’t always land on their feet.
I know that better than most. Since rejoining the Pride, I’ve made big decisions and even bigger mistakes: the kind paid for with innocent lives. As the first and only female enforcer, I have plenty to prove to my father, the Pride and myself. And with murdered toms turning up in our territory, I’m working harder than ever, though I always find the energy for a little after-hours recreation with Marc, my partner both on and off duty.
But not all my mistakes are behind me. We’re beginning to suspect that the dead are connected to a rash of missing human women and that they can all be laid at my feet–two or four, take your pick. And one horrible indiscretion may yet cost me more than I can bear…
What I Thought
If you enjoyed the first book in this series, then you will like this one even more. Some parts of the first one were slow or not as engaging as I would have liked, but this one pumps it up more for the reader.
There’s a murder mystery going on, and the whole buildup and solving who is doing it was so good. I loved how the author pieces it together, and I couldn’t even guess who it was or anything. But it was cool when Faythe discovered things and the way she explained it, it was like I was there solving it with them and it all made sense.
There are ups and downs emotionally, and they’re mostly from Faythe’s and Marc’s relationship. I felt bad for him because she doesn’t know what she wants and he’s so committed to her. I won’t say much, but I really hope things work out for them in the future books more. There’s of course deaths and some lingering stuff from the previous book, but it all works well with the story.
I think that the more I read this series the more I will like it, since I enjoyed it even more than the first one. Here’s hoping the rest of the series is just as good or better!
