Pride was excellent, so good … I couldn’t stop reading”
~ Under the Covers

When I started reading this series I was told that I would have to put up with the first few days as the last four were completely worth it. Now, I slightly disagree with this; I really liked the first two books, but now I am past reading the ‘duds’ and am on to the good stuff… I can kind of see what people mean. Pride was excellent, so good that once I finished, unlike with the first two books, I couldn’t stop reading and managed to devour the rest of the series in a couple of days.

This means I am reviewing this retrospectively knowing exactly what happens next, so if I apologise now if I give anything away about what happens past Pride! In this book Faythe is on trial after accidentally turning her ex-boyfriend into a Stray and then having to kill him in self-defence, of course the Council see it in a different light; her deliberately turning her ex and then killing him to hide her mistake in judgment. And, unless she can convince the council of her side of the story, then the sentence is death. Of course, this isn’t all that is happening, a band of Strays are causing havoc and endangering the secrecy that holds the werecats safe.

Pride really was an edge of the seat kind of read, as the story develops you couldn’t help being drawn in to the story as you learnt more. With each revelation and event the plot got more intriguing as you wonder how exactly Faythe & co were going to handle it and still come out on top. And, what made me madly dash for the next book was they things didn’t always turn out as you wanted and expected them to, the good guys didn’t always end up on top.

What I really like about this series, and I think this book in particular demonstrates this quite well, was Faythe’s development as a character, in Stray the first book in the series she wasn’t always that likable. But as the books progress you see Faythe doing some growing up, see her think about the consequences of her actions and words, rather than act on instinct and emotions. Watching Faythe mature into her full potential is one of the things I like most about this series.

I am so glad I picked this series to start and finish in our Rollback Week, otherwise I would have really missed out on something fantastic. If you are a lover of UF with plenty of action, romance and plot then you need to give this series a try.

About Rachel Vincent

Rachel Vincent is a former English teacher and an eager champion of the Oxford comma. She shares her home in Oklahoma with two cats, two teenagers, and her husband, who’s been her # 1 fan from the start. Rachel is older than she looks and younger than she feels, and she remains convinced that writing about the things that scare her is the cheapest form of therapy—but social media is a close second.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I’m so glad that you enjoyed this series. I always, always recommend this series to someone that is looking for something new in the UF genre. Rachel’s Unbound series. The world building is phenomenal.
