Vincent, STRAY

Rachel Vincent, Stray: paranormal featuring werecats, with a powerful, rebellious first person narrator. I was annoyed with the heroine for a while, but grew to admire her, and was very pleased the author did the brave thing on some important plot elements. I'd be interested to know how other readers of paranormals and urban fantasy think this heroine matches up. I found it amusing that she has a whole crew of hunky brothers and friends who, in any other series, would scream sequel-bait, but not from the heroine's point of view!

There are some bits that are a bit horrific, so if you don't like bloody scenes, this book is not for you. I don't think it's worse than anything on television, though.

Warning, serial killer! I perservered, because it was a subplot, and the main plot was serial kidnapping.
