A great addition to the Blood of the Pride series. Like Family Pride, Battle Scars introduced more of Bran's past, and much of the story involved revisiting the street kids story that made his journalism career. I really enjoy that Reb and Bran's relationship has evolved as the books have progressed so that they're an effective team. And though they've settled into their lives together there's still a lot of personal baggage to conquer--they're not perfect and their relationship takes a lot of e ...more
Another "I liked it, w/reservations." Good ending, though.

I liked a number of things about this read, especially the way it turned out, and I can congratulate myself on predicting one event that Reb didn't have a clue was coming. However, Reb's doubts and fears that Bran would get involved with Angie were foolish. That's not a choice he would have made, even with the tangle of regrets he felt over what he'd been unable to do for the street kids before.

Red is a great new character, a

Modern day "Romeo & Juliet", werecat style

A blast from Bran's past sets Reb back on her heels when they enlist his old flame to crack their latest case, offering delightful juxtaposition to the Felis widower pawing at Reb back in "Claws Bared." Surprises abound in this "Romeo & Juliet" retelling, including the lengths to which two warring Felis clans will go to return their wayward children home.

We're treated to a view of Felis culture and clan politics from the i

The ending of the saga, a good one which leaves you with the curiosity to know more.

Let me start by saying that I did not realize Battle Scars was part of a series when I requested the book from Netgalley. As I was reading I though it was book 2 in the series. It was not until I was through and found the synopsis of books 1 – 3 that I realized it was book four. That explained why I was so lost during parts of the book. I strongly recommend reading the first three books first. It would even have helped if I had read the synopsis of the first three books before I started.

Stayed up until midnight to finish this one. Fourth in an urban fantasy series about Toronto P.I. and outcast Felis shifter Rebecca and human investigative reporter Brandon. This time the plot had shades of Romeo and Juliet as well as an interesting look at teen runaways on Toronto streets. Very readable with some nice plot twists. I like how Rebecca and Brandon's relationship has developed across the series as well as Rebecca's uncomfortable push-pull relationship with Jess, a Felis leader.
