I enjoyed book 2 more than book 1, Stray. I have to say that although some of the story lines are somewhat predictable, I still enjoy Rachel Vincent's writing. I find the characters interesting and I'm happy that Faythe attitude has shifted (no pun intended) from the constant, "I just wanna be free ..." bit. I love the large, close knit family dynamic in these stories (as well as most pack stories) since it's such a contrast from my own. Knowing that someone is always there or on their way to help you out in an emergency must be a wonderful feeling. And Faythe has that in spades, being a treasured tabby.I couldn't wait and jumped right into book 3, Pride because I am so anxious to see what happens to Faythe and heartbroken Marc next.
