Shapeshifter Pride is a seventeen-year-old girl who has been raised in captivity as a killing machine. When her cruel master decides it's time to tame her, unless she wants to be broken her only option is to run. She knows running will bring harm to people who are already suffering but she's left with no choice. These same people willingly make sacrifices in order for her to win freedom for them all.

Her chance for escape comes when she's sent to capture a shapeshifter named Logan, a boy who represents everything she'd like to be. Although the attraction is instant and mutual, Logan is a long time gaining her trust. The fact that he has secrets of his own and is unwilling to share them makes it more difficult for her to believe in him.

This debut YA novel by the talented Cat Kalen will appeal to teens and adults alike. I stayed awake well into the morning hours in order to finish it.

At first glance PRIDE"S RUN by Cat Kalen appears to be nothing more than an entertaining YA shape shifter story. But as I read I realized that once I looked past the paranormal aspects of the story I was really reading about man's ability to justify inhumane acts against his fellow creatures whether human or animal.

Pride is a young shifter who was bred and raised to be an enforcer for the cruel leader of a drug cartel. She dreams of of freedom, of escaping, but knows by doing so she puts the lives of the other shifters she cares for in danger of reprisal. There's a hint of romance in the story, but the focus is on Pride's bid for freedom and justice.

Ms Kalen's story delves into the minds and hearts of an enslaved people. Using a paranormal element she shows the horror of slavery and brings home the truth that no matter a person's race, no man has the right to own another.

I look forward to reading more of Pride's journey to freedom.

This werewolf chick named Pride, escapes from her compound and goes on the run with a super hot alpha as they evade their various pursuers. I thought this book was pretty good and I didn't regret paying $5 for it.

Due to the reviews on the front page, I hadn't been expecting much romance, but now that I've actually read the book myself I'm wondering if those reviewers actually read the same book... I mean, I wouldn't label this straight "romance," (more like YA UF) but the romance was definitely a major part of the plot in this book--in fact, it's pretty much central to it...

So why only 3 stars? I knocked off one because throughout this book, I found the first person present tense narration distracting. I've never been a big fan of this type of narration, but usually, once I get into a book I stop noticing it. That didn't happen here. It felt like there was too much telling and not enough showing (description), as every sentence was like: I did this, I did that, he looked at me like this, etc. Still, it didn't ruin the book for me and depending on what you're used to, you might not even notice it.

Another thing is, I would've given this book 4 stars if not for the ending. It seemed very rushed and almost anticlimactic (not to mention hokey). It also seemed to highlight the lack of development--which I hadn't really noticed or cared about up until that point. Maybe it's all being saved for the sequel? I dunno, and the thing is, I'm no longer sure that I want to do that one, as everything felt like it had gone all one-dimensional by the end of this one.

Anyways, if you're a YA cruising for more cheap kindle werewolf reads maybe check out

Pride's Run - a YA paranormal action and romance. Pride is a werewolf who has grown up in captivity, forced to kill for her drug lord master, forced to turn on family and friends just to survive. Pride is finally pushed over the edge and decides to escape - it is then that she meets Logan, a boy that sees more than a the killer inside her. But most off all this is the story of a girl who has to come to trust herself, to beleive in herself as a hero, instead of as a failure.

I really enjoyed this YA paranormal adventure! Pride really caught me, and I have to admit that I have a teeny crush on Logan. :) A first book from Cat Kalen but definitely not the last.

I flew through this pulse-pounding story this weekend. Stumble into a world of shifters, wicked men, and paranormal police. Pride is a headstrong, passionate character it's easy to root for, and her story kept me on the edge of my seat--not to mention the presence of the intense, swoon-worthy Logan; these strong characters drive the story, and I can't wait to read the next Wolf's Pride book!

A thrilling YA paranormal romance, Pride's Run was a fantastic read. The action had me on the edge of my seat while the romance had me swooning over Logan. I really liked this lovely book.

Pride was a strong character. She went through a lot as a captive of her master, but she refused to let anything break her. She was tough, determined, and I really liked her.

Logan was the love interest and he was wonderful. He was very sweet and strong and determined to protect those he cared about. And, he definitely proved himself as a hero. I absolutely adored him.

The romance was good. Pride and Logan were great together. Even though they were both wary of trusting, they still couldn't deny that they had feelings for each other and I thought that was very sweet. Also, the heat level was a little higher between them than in most YA books, so there was a touch of spice as well. And they were so bad ass together. Nobody stood a chance with the two of them. They were great together and I hope they manage to find a happy ending.

Stone was another major character. At first, I didn't like him. He was mean and cruel and horrible. But, later in the book, we get his reasons for acting the way he did and it changed my whole perspective of him. He was actually very sweet and determined to protect those he loved. By the end of the book I really liked him. He has the potential as another love interest, so we'll see how that goes.

My problem with the book, though, was that I needed more explanation. I didn't fully understand what was going on. I wasn't even sure that they were, in fact, werewolves because the descriptions were unclear and I just had to make an educated guess. But, more than that, why were werewolves being kept as slaves?
