There are only eight breeding female werecats left...

And I'm one of them.

I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.

Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.

I'd been warned about Strays — werecats without a Pride, constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female, and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.

This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back... for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I'm no meek kitty. I'll take on whatever — and whoever — I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays — 'cause I got claws, and I'm not afraid to use them...

I've seen this one around quite a bit. Not been meaning to read it, but I may as well try something I don't normally read. Why not.

XD I used to be the sprint queen. I hardly read at all anymore. I'm just way too busy with uni. I'm being way too ambitious next month, I know, but I just really want to do my best for the MMC. It's only once a year.

You should!

This thread's going to get insane with all 6 books getting comments on it at different times XD I'm not going to be able to reply to all the spoilers as I'm reading at the end of the month :/ Hopefully everyone makes their updates clear as to which book it's for!
