Description
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....

"Compelling and edgy, dark and evocative, Stray is a must read! I loved it from beginning to end." —New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter

STRAY is New York Times bestselling author Rachel Vincent first book in her acclaimed Shifter series.

I look like an allAmerican grad student. But I am a werecat, a shapeshifter, 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...

More Praise:
"Well written, fresh, charming, great voice —Buffy meets Cat People. I loved it, and look forward to much more in the future from this talented author." —New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham

"Rachel Vincent is a new author that I'm going to be watching." —New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison

"A highoctane plot with characters you can really care about. Vincent is a welcome addition to the genre!" —Kelley Armstrong, author of the Women of the Otherworld series
