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 of 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…
Again, this book started out slow but when it picked up, you didn’t want to put the book down. As I predicted in the last book, Faythe had accidentally turned Andrew, her ex. But I did not expect the way the author took the story.
I was expecting more of a love triangle between Faythe, Andrew, and Marc. But instead the accidental bite ended Faythe’s relationship with Matc and Faythe having to kill Andrew. Although Faythe’s character was more mature, she still reacts selfishly at times. I feel bad about her and Marc’s breakup. Faythe defiantly overreacted about the ring but Marc said some cruel things. I’m glad Faythe didn’t get away with biting Andrew. I am interested to see where the author takes the next book in regards to Faythe’s trial and her relationship with Marc.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. The characters are interesting and the plot was exciting.
