Synopsis from Goodreads
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.
What I Thought
This series just keeps surprising me and I’m really loving it so far, though I’m kind of sad already that there’s only two more books left.
In the last one there was a lot of Pride politics (and bullshit going on) and it kept me glued to the story. That feeling is back but for a few different reasons. There’s still tension between the Prides and one in particular is still up to his tricks. On top of that Faythe and a few other people get ambushed by strays and a while later it turns out Marc is missing, and no one knows if he’s still alive or not.
The hunt begins for Marc while other stuff is going on back at home and Faythe is torn between her two duties a lot. She goes through so much emotion with this whole book worrying about him and other things, that it makes it intense and you just want to get to the end to find out what’s going to happen.
There’s a lot going on in this book, especially in the second half, but it was a great read and a perfect addition for this series. Keep reading these books if you’ve already started, or if this sounds good go get the first!
