You don't find very many cat shifter stories. Rachael Vincent has a great one but up until reading Blood of the Pride I had not found any others that were worth reading. Mrs Nantus did a great job building her Felis world. Their society is well thought out with a clear structure that comes through in the story without being boring or overwhelming.

Now onto our main character. Reb's life is far from glamorous. As an outcast from her own kind she is living in the bad part of town as a PI. She has no close friends, unless you count a street cat she has adopted. This is the perfect setup for a budding romance, especially with all of the action she and Brandon are going to have to face in order to bring a killer to justice. Lucky for her Brandon seems just as attracted to her as she is to him and isn't deterred by her constant pushing him away.

This was a fun read with strong characters. Even though Reb is obviously the main character enough time was taken with each of the minor characters so that you felt like you knew them. The action was intense and spread out enough through the story to keep you interested.

I do have to warn you there was a couple of spots where I had to stop and reread something when the conversation didn't seem to flow. Overall though this was a great story and well worth the time. I hope to see this turn into a series. I'd love to see where Reb and Brandon end up next.

Sheryl Nantus' Blood of the Pride is a blend of detective story/paranormal adventure and romance that builds an amazing world. I'm always fascinated by writers who can blend fantasy elements into a real-world setting, and Nantus does a wonderful job here, bringing her heroine, Rebecca Desjardin to life.

Rebecca, a private investigator, has a complicated past and an even more complicated relationship with her family, and the plot moves through a web of betrayals, ancient secrets and the shadowy truth. Adding spice to matters, the handsome tabloid reporter Brandon Hannover makes it his business to get involved with Rebecca both on a professional and personal level. Their bantering and dangerous relationship is one of the highlights of the book, practically crackling off the pages.

I don't want to give the plot away, but I will add that if you're a cat-lover, this is definitely a book you don't want to miss, and with luck, the start of a series, since I would adore seeing Rebecca and Brandon in a further story.

Rebecca Desjardin is an ex-member of a local shape-shifting Pride, and she was banished, to Montreal?, as she was not able to completely shapeshift when she was fifteen. So for the last twenty years Rebecca has made her living as a private eye, and now, suddenly, she's just been given an unrefusable summoning back to her ex-Pride. The Pride is being run now, as it was then, by Jess Hammersmythe, a tough-as-nails, no-nonsense type who has had to go against her own council members to get Rebecca to look into the Pride's current troubles.

It seems that somebody has brutally murdered a local Pride member and Jess wants an outside agency to investigate the crime, somebody who can move between the human and the Felis worlds, and understand why this investigation has to be kept on the down-low. Unfortunately, the murder has already hit the local tabloid, complete with pictures of the murder victim caught in-between shifting. So, the first thing that she has to do is track down the photographer of the crime and to do this she has to contact the reporter who wrote tabloid story.

The reporter is Brandon Hanover, and he smells a story, and who is attracted to Rebecca. And so we are on our way, and what becomes striking is how Sheryl Nantus manages to juggle the romance, the shapeshifting, and crime itself. And good job of this juggling she does.

Nantus tells her story with a sense of ease, and creates an eminently likable character in Rebecca, as Nantus gives Rebecca equal amounts of self-disparagement, cynicism, and bulldog determination. Rebecca is an old-fashioned pulp detective, with a libido, transplanted to modern times.

Well-written urban fantasy with a strong, appealing heroine. Rebecca is an exile from her shifter Felis tribe, but gets called back in to help solve a murder. Politics and a shifter society focussed on secrets make for dangerous waters. I also liked the romantic subplot between Rebecca and tabloid reporter, Brandon.
