2.0 out of 5 stars "Faythe Sanders" series book 1, 15 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Stray (MIRA) (Paperback)
Faythe Sanders' five years of freedom from her over protective family is about to end. A rare female werecat, Faythe is all too aware that she will be brought back kicking and screaming to her Pride if necessary once it is learned a Stray (a turned werecat rather than a born shapeshifter) is kidnapping tabbies.

Faythe is soon quickly drawn back into Pride life and her attraction to Marc; a Stray she left at the altar when she ran away five years before, is a strong as ever. Yet danger threatens Faythe and not even Marc or her father's other enforcers can help her when she is foolishly caught by a South American jungle cat.

This book has everything I like in a paranormal romance, plenty of action, some hot romance and a strong paranormal theme. Yet I was ultimately disappointed and left with no intention of continuing on with this series. This is predominantly due to Faythe's character, which I found increasingly annoying the more I read. At the age of 23 she is still acting like a moody, wilful teenage who wants to test the boundaries set around her for her own protection, which leads to not only her own kidnapping, but the injury or death of other characters. Poor Faythe, all beaten up with guilt over the events that surround her, but HELLO, if she'd just acted sensibly in the first place she could have saved herself a lot of heartache. Faythe is also supposed to be a strong, independent character, and disregarding a couple of fight scenes when she is imprisoned, she actually comes across as somewhat cowardly (always running from her responsibilities) and when something blood thirsty occurs, she's falling into the arms of Marc or a brother crying her eyes out. Err she's a meat eater in her cat form and certainly enjoys the hunt, so why is she overly squeamish as a human? Don't even get me started on her relationship with Marc. She's got a human boyfriend, but quickly brushes him aside to flirt with another werecat Jace or fall into bed with Marc, leaving me feeling she's not only stupid and unready to take responsibility for her actions, she's also fickle and lacks any sense of loyalty to those that think they are important to her. All I can say is that Marc could have done much better if female werecats weren't so rare. Phew that was a bit of a rant, but you may have guessed by now that Faythe is by far one of the poorest leading ladies I have come across, which thoroughly tarnished my reading experience.
