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.
I really liked this one! I’ve really enjoyed this series, and this book is no exception.
In Prey, we see Faythe dealing with Marc in exile…and Marc goes missing, of course, so Faythe has to deal with that as well. She’s not willing to give up on finding him, even though there are so many other things that are going on. She has a lot of heartbreak in the novel, and I was really sad about it. Faythe and her family has a lot to deal with and they didn’t need that at all. It made me really sad for her.
Faythe is Faythe, though, and while it hurts now, she will be okay, even if it takes time. She’s pretty tough, but we do see her as a slightly more vulnerable person in this book.
There are some mysteries in this one, like everything we see with the strays. I’m curious to see how that works out in the next couple of books, because I feel like that story is far from over. Also, I really hope Mark is able to leave exile and come back home, but who knows when or how that will happen, if it does?
Honestly, I’ve been feeling pretty frazzled, so I’m surprised I can remember this much about the book! Granted, when I take a while to review a book, there are times where I don’t always remember a lot, but with school, my brain is somewhat fried. At any rate, this was an interesting listen, and I really felt for Faythe. She does find herself in the weird situations, and trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes.
As an audio book, I really liked it! Jennifer Van Dyck continues to narrate the series, and she does a great job. Once I finish this series, I want to check out some of the other audio books she narrated. Honestly, that’s how much I like her!
4 stars. I really enjoyed Prey, and there’s both mystery and heartbreak for Faythe and her family. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
