By Julie Rimpula 04 May 2014 5

I didn't know you had it in you, Ms. Vincent. I never thought you could break my heart like that.

Prey honestly surprised me. I know that Rachel Vincent's Shifters series is really good and I enjoyed the three books so far that I've read. But this fourth one blew me. There's more action, more romance, more drama, more angst. Faythe never fails to shock me with her feistiness. She's stubborn and hard-headed but I think she's really Alpha-material. She's constantly evolving and she's learning from her mistakes. And she never loses hope. The old and new characters were really great, too. I got to see a different side of them in this book, especially Faythe's dad and Jace. Marc is awesome as usual but he's pretty much MIA almost half of the book, and this time, he's the one being rescued by Faythe.

Reading Prey is a roller-coaster ride. It's action-filled and exciting. I also love the twists and the betrayal. That moment when it was revealed who the traitor was? Wow. I honestly didn't see that one coming. I thought he was on their side all along. Very clever. (Or maybe I was just slow on the uptake? But whatever.) Also, that thing with Faythe and Jace was, I think, long overdue. Although they couldn't have picked a worse timing. But the one good thing that came out of it was that Jace was finally showing some aggressiveness. Could he be also Alpha-material? Hmmm.. I wonder.

And like I said at the beginning, this book broke my heart. I was bawling my eyes out at two in the morning because of Prey. I don't know what purpose that major twist served other than to 'fuel some fires' and ruin my life, but it really sucked. I really hate having to say goodbye to an awesome character.

And the ending! Whoa. What a major shocker! That last line. Aargh! I don't know what to say. It made me want to dive headfirst to the next book, but I still can't because I must grieve. (*sigh* The pain of being attached to fictional characters.)

All in all, I loved this book. It's obvious that there will be major events, i.e. an impending war, happening in the next books and Prey served as an effective prelude. It made me look forward to reading them more. This book packed some punch and boy, it punched hard.
