From Goodreads:
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 . . .

The Story:
We follow the main character a strong independent young woman. Who just want to live a normal life. But that´s easier said then done, since shes a shapeshifter. And can turn herself into a huge cat animal, called werecat.
But one day young women, young werecat ladies are getting kidnapped. And she is being forced home by her family to get protection.
Just one problem. She don´t want to be protected, she wants to be herself etc.

But what will happen when things really get serious.

My Opinion and My Conclusion:
Awesome book. For adult or the older young adult girls :P
I was totally hooked by the first page and on. And there were always something happening and it was super exciting. I both laughter, shivered and cried to this book. I was so sucked into it that I had to stop sometimes, because I thought omg how am I surviving this or what do I do next xD
Just one tiny detail. Its not me xD haha But that great was the book..I was convinced that it was myself :P
So yeah this book will get an 6 out of 6 stars. There could probably been some more of something. But I don´t know what. But it deserves 6 stars since I was so much living the character :P

And I just have to add.. OMG Jace sounded so totally cute.. And I am so looking forward to read the next book :)
