This is another re-read for me. I read Stray a couple of years ago. I only read the first two books in the series, but never continued. So I decided to re-read Stray & Rogue to refresh my mind so I can continue and finish the series. I have to say, I really forgot how amazing this series is.
It pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you along for the ride. The writing flows very nicely together and you can fly through more pages than your normally do a minute. I can't really think of anything that bugs me, other than the characters and the things some characters do in the story, which is SUPPOSED to happen. =) In which it is good.
I love the main characters, Faythe. She is truly a kick-ass heroine. She's brave, sarcastic, stands up for herself, and knows how to kick ass when she needs to. She doesn't let anyone push her around, and I love all of that about her. I can't believe I forgot how awesome she is! She makes me laugh constantly throughout the books.
I also love Marc, her family and Pride. They all have so much personality to them that you feel like you know them. I wish my family was that close. And aaaah, Marc is so yummy! (J, if you're reading this, you knew this was coming! I bet you think Faythe is yummy, but you're just too scared to say it.)
Overall, this was amazing the first time I read it, amazing this second time around, and I will definitely be re-reading it again in the future. It has a unique story line and there are WERECATS! Not werewolves, WERECATS! You can't say that isn't cool. And it's not housecat. It's BIG cats.
NOTE & WARNING: This is an ADULT book. It deals heavily with rape. There aren't any actual rape scenes in the book, but it is talked about and and attempted. This is a great series, but probably not so great for those under 16.show more
