I'm on trial for my life. Falsely accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend—and killing him to cover up the crime. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride—along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.
I'm two for three. A goner.

Now we've discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. It's up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc's help, I think I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.

If I survive my own trial…

I had to sit on this review for a day. I think so far I liked this book least of the series, so many bad things happen in this book, it just makes me sad. I am not saying it's a bad book but I liked the previous two better. There are just a lot of politics in this book, something I never can really get into when I read any sort of book where there are underlying politics. I always miss them all.

As usual Faythe is mouthy and always in the way. I love that about her though. When she gets angry she tells you, when she wants to punch something, she does. I like a women who knows her own mind. In some instances during this book though, she probably should have kept her mouth shut, at least until out of ear shot. I also love how she is trying to make her father proud and show him she can be a good girl. Goes a long way to showing how much she is growing over the course of each book.

As for the relationships in this book...I have a feeling I am just going to have to suck it up, but I am Team Jace. I really love his care free spirit and Marc gets on my nerves so often *grrr* but I have a feeling I will have to suck it up and learn to love Marc as well.

Plot in this book was on the weaker side, as I said it was more politics, and I have a feeling set up for some future series ass kicking. We will have to wait and see...hope the next one is better....but over all definitely worth the read.
