Three months after the events in Stray, Faythe is settling into her life as enforcer working for her father. All seems well until dead strays start turning up in their territory. An innocent mistake comes back to haunt her and threaten to destroy everything.

This book has the feel of a good old fashioned murder mystery. While I dislike the cops-chasing-the-bad-guy kind of murder mystery, I love the kind that involves anything supernatural. It's a weird distinction and I can't really explain it.

Faythe has done a bit of growing up in the past three years. She's even learned to keep her mouth shut - sometimes. She's a smart girl who never gives up. She will fight until she can't possibly fight anymore. However, as we find out a little bit more of the events in Faythe and Marc's past, I still can't help feeling that she's a selfish person. She does know when she's made a mistake and will apologize for it, but she also seems to think she's somehow above certain things.

The one thing I really disliked about this book was the sex scene. I don't particularly like sex scenes to begin with, especially if they dominate the book. This didn't dominate the book but the circumstances around it were....uncomfortable. I don't want to say too much as it will probably be a spoiler, but the whole scene was not how I think that situation would really go. I'm not sure if Marc is really in love with Faythe or if it's just some kind of cat possession thing he's got going.

Other than that, i really like this book. There's a some good fight scenes and the few female characters that exist in this world can kick ass just as well as the men.

I rate this book 4/5 stars, and as it ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, I'm eager to start book 3, Pride.
