I'm on trial for my life. Falsely accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend—and killing him to cover up the crime. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride—along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human. I'm two for three. A goner. Now we've discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. It's up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc's help, I think I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council. If I survive my own trial…
**Summary taken from Goodreads**
If you've read my previous reviews for this Rachel Vincent Shifter series you know i have mixed feelings about it. Pride is book three and sees Faythe growing up a lot, she still has her spontaneous streak that sometimes lands her in hot water but overall her maturity was nice to see. Faythe is dealing with the fall out of 'Rogue' killing her ex boyfriend in defence has her before the council on charges of murder, if she can't prove she didn't deliberately change him and then kill him on purpose to cover it up she will face the death penalty. This was an exciting storyline, mixed into that was an emotional roller coasted for Faythe and Marc, Strays causing trouble, humans going missing, and a runaway teenage shifter.
For me this is the best book in the series so far, what irritated me about Faythe is previous books wasn't present in this one, i finally see the progression Vincent is taking her on.
While the books are still a bit on the 'too long' side for me, some things stretch out so much i become bored and want them resolved, i did however enjoy Pride and want to dive right into 'Prey' to continue on with Faythe and Marc, their arc is heart achingly sad right now, i hope it gets better in the next book.
Vincent really delved into Pride laws with this one, and dished up a gripping tale of loyalty, sadness, maturity, and strength. All leading to a great crescendo of a finale. Can't Wait!
I give Pride 3.5 Sparkles out of 5!
