Anti-shifter sentiment is at an all-time high when Kayla’s transformation to werecat is captured on video and uploaded for the world to see. Suddenly she becomes a symbol of the werebeast threat and—along with fellow cat Yoshi, lion-possum Clyde, and human Aimee—a hunted fu

As the final book of the Feral series, Feral Pride brings the series to an epic conclusion. The book switched between four character’s perspectives this time: Clyde, Aimee, Yoshi and Kayla. It picks up from right after the events of Feral Curse. As a fan of the Tantalize series, I loved that the author wrote a three-book spin-off series based around other characters.

I also loved that there books focus on the shifter and the social prejudices on whether they are considered human since they can b

More like three and a half.

Full review to come, but I feel like the ending of this book....kind of cancelled out everything that happened in the previous books. I'm sad. I was left feeling very hollow after I finished.

Recent events have caused society to feel very threatened by werepeople, when in fact, most of them want to live quietly in the shadows. The governor has been kidnapped and a wereserpent is trying to start a war between humans and weres. Characters from books one and two return to clear the shifters’ names. When I tried to describe the plot to a friend they looked at me like I was nuts. That’s probably a good way to describe the book. The book is goofy but fun. I hated the ending.

**See my review in VOYA magazine.**

Someone leaked a video of Kayla’s shift from human form to werecat, and homo sapiens everywhere now have proof of the existence of werepeople, the PC term for werebeasts. While many homo sapiens had some inkling of werepeople’s existence, seeing one shift frightens them; they don’t understand that, like humans, there are both good bad werepeople. Some humans in Texas are rallying against the werepeople, implanting a device to prevent shifting and to make them e
In this finale to the trilogy, racism is at its highest for the were-people. Kayla has been outed on camera; Jess steals her father’s police car several times to get the weres places fast; the weres are constantly on the move to avoid capture, and now a were-snake has surfaced to create even more grief for the were-world, kidnapping the governor of Texas. Clyde’s relationship with his father could create a highlight, but fizzles.

The story had its usual share of smart-mouthed humor, but the iron

Three teenage "wereanimals" (two Cats and a Lossum--a lion/possum hybrid), along with their human friends, try to out local and federal human authorites (who are assisted by werebears controlled with neural implants) while a mysterious weresnake takes to the news and announces to the world that he has kidnapped a Texas state official who will be excuted unless humans "confess to being the subordinate species".
This is the 3rd book in a trilogy. Because of this, there was a lot of backstory that

Shifters have been outed in the media when Kayla’s transformation to werecat is recorded and uploaded for everyone to see. She is now seen as a werebeast threat and is on the run with Yoshi, Clyde and Aimee. As if things couldn’t get any worse, a weresnake has kidnapped the governor of Texas and announced to the media that this is just the beginning. All werepeople are now at risk as law enforcement tries to round them up, corporations develop a shift-suppressing vaccine and an underground slave ...more
“Feral Pride,” is the final installment in Cynthia Leitich Smith’s “Feral” series. It was preceded by “Feral Nights,” and “Feral Curse.” This urban fantasy can be read as a stand-alone, although it does reference events in previous volumes.

Shapeshifters are “outed” by the media when Kayla’s werecat transformation is recorded and exposed to the world. Perceived as a threat, Kayla is now on the run with Yoshi (a werecat), Clyde (a werelion-possum), and Aimee (a human/homo sapiens). The four abort

What the crap? This book sucked. Not to spoil anything but I hated the ending the ending was awful the book was great quick fun Up until the ending. I probably would've given it a one but I really did like the series. And there's no hope of another spin off because this one only even has 15 ratings. I don't mean to be mean but it was pointless.
