Product Description

“The fight was about to get unbelievably, irreversibly bad”

Having barely escaped a tribunal with her life, defiant werecat Faythe can’t seem to keep out of trouble. Her disobedience jeopardises her father’s position as Alpha of the south-central Pride and a young tabby in her care refuses to shift into cat form to save her own life.

But a darker danger lurks in the bloody and mysterious disappearance of Faythe’s boyfriend, exiled stray Marc. Tired of being a target, Faythe’s ready to embrace her destiny and fight like an Alpha to get Marc back and defend the honour of her Pride.

More About the Author

Rachel Vincent learned to read at four years old, and wrote her first story at six. It was about a class field trip to the zoo. In addition to being her first experiment with the written word, it was also the first and only tale she illustrated herself - it turns out that her talents do not extend to the visual arts.

Since sixth grade, her reading interests have centred around the dark side of literature. In junior high, much to her teacher's distress, she wrote her very first book report about Carrie, by Stephen King. She devoured books about magic, vampires, and werewolves by the dozens. Monsters held a special fascination for her, be they human or beast. And eventually "I love these books" became "I think I can write these books," and she began creating fictional worlds of her own.

Rachel dabbled with short stories all the way through junior high, high school, and college, but didn't begin writing seriously until several years later, when she started her first novel. By the time she had completed four manuscripts, she knew she had found what she wanted to do with her life.

Rachel is the author of the bestselling Soul Screamers series. There are four titles in the series, My Soul to Take, My Soul to Steal, My Soul to Keep and My Soul to Steal already published. The latest title in the Soul Screamers series, If I Die is published in Feb 2012.

Rachel has also written a special short story "My Soul to Lose" which will be available as part of World Book Day in March 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book In The Series So Far 30 Jun 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The writing of the Shifters series has improved with every book. It's grown up along side Faythe, and Prey is easily the best so far. Not only within the series, but it's one of the best books I've read so far this year.

Faythe is well out of her comfort zone here, without the ever present support of her lover Marc, she is forced to be the strong one and lead the hunt for him. Knowing all along that they're more likely to find a body. She's got to deal with Manx's trial, a rebellious teen tabby, Kaci, who refuses to shift and her Pride in on the verge of war with several others.

One of the greatest aspects of the Shifters series is that the characters are far from perfect, making them easy to relate to. And no matter how much the characters grow and change in to the people they're becoming, they still have flaws. They're still real. Faythe shows a great deal of maturity throughout Prey, truly showing us the extent of her potential for the first time. But it doesn't stop her from making mistakes. The one character who arguably shows more development than Faythe in this, is Jace, which came as a bit of a surprise, but a very welcome one.

Prey is heartbreaking in places, and I'm sure there are many, many people none to happy about certain aspects, but everything has it's place and reason. It pulls no punches and is all the better for it. The plot is tight, with the subplots carefully weaved in to create a pretty prefect balance. There is no filler here. There are plenty of twists and turns, catching you by surprise on more than one occasion, and I was left hungry for more come the end.

Ms. Vincent stated that Prey 'would change everything' and it certainly has. I think just about anything can happen now in book 5, Shift, and I can't wait to see what that is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shifters Book 4 3 Mar 2010
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the 4th book in the Shifters series so it is very difficult to review without giving spoilers for previous books. If you're new to the series I strongly recommend you start reading from the beginning as this really is a series you need to read in order.

I was already a massive fan of this series but I honestly think that this is the best book yet. There was so much going on & I literally couldn't put it down! Marc is in exile which is bad enough but when he goes missing Faythe is out of her mind with worry. Along with searching for Marc she has to deal with Manx's trial and Kaci's diminishing health as she is still refusing to shift. That's nothing compared to the political maneuvers that Calvin Malone is putting into place to try and oust Faythe's father as the Alpha of the south-central Pride. If ever there was a character I wanted to climb into a book just to punch it would have to be Malone!

Prey takes you on a complete emotional rollercoaster - it is the first book in a long time that actually made me cry. Parts of the book are absolutely heartbreaking and although at the time I was crying "Noooooo" and begging Rachel Vincent not to do it, I do think that what happened is going to have an important impact for the series. The plot is as even more action packed than I was expecting and the number of twists the story takes is incredible.

We really do see Faythe start to grow up in this book. Without Marc to lean on she has to stand on her own 2 feet and I can see the makings of a great Alpha in her. She still isn't perfect and makes several mistakes but her character has come a long way since Stray.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favourite in the series so far 11 Nov 2011
By carly
This is the forth book in the shifter series and my favourite in the series so far. I am still in shock at all the life-changing things that have happened, Rachel Vincent has really shaken things up in this one.

Faythe has really had to grow up in this book and its great to see her taking charge. Marc is missing so faythe has to be strong and lead the hunt for him in the free zone. Kaci is getting sicker from refusing to shift and it's up to Faythe to try and persuade her.

Her father's (Greg) place as head of the Territorial Council is in the hands of Blackwell while the decision to keep Greg or not is made. War is also imminent because of the consequences of a shocking end to one of the pride cats.

Jace's character has really developed and we get to see a different side of him, he has done some growing up in this book too.

Rachel Vincent never fails to deliver. With down to earth and really believable characters. Shock moments, real emotion and lots of twists and turns throughout.

This book is a must read for fans of the series. I cannot wait to get started on the next SHIFT. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Prey 17 July 2010
By Sarah
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I only started reading these books a little while ago, and have gone through them really quickly, having to pre-order the last one because I can't wait to read it.

Prey picks up some time after Pride left off, and is infinitely better. Marc has been exiled from the pride following Faythes trial, and is now living in the free territory. A trip through the free territory to take Manx to her trial allows faythe to reconnect with Marc, only to have him go missing quite soon after that, with Faythe leading the search for him, even whilst the rest of the pride worries that he is dead.

But the problems don't end there, not only is mark missing, but Manx is on trial for her life, Kaci is refusing to shift and killing herself because of it, and Faythes father is under increasing pressure of a political nature thanks to the scheming of Calvin Malone who is trying to take over the territorial council, and take Kaci and Manx away from the south-central pride.

The book is fast-paced and keeps you hooked, and there are also some twists to the tale with the death of someone very close to Faythe, and a lapse in judgement that sends her head into a total spin. Prey doesn't disappoint, and you'll be desperate to read the next instalment 'shift' to find out what happens next.
