This is a story of different types of people, such as vampires, were's, leopards, lions, shadow shifters, etc. The children started disappearing shortly before the age when they would shift. What pain and torture they experienced is inhumane. Well they find the children and those who have captured them? Good read

Shifters, all different kinds, are disappearing. Not ordinary shifters, but children. Lots of action and excitement . The main character is someone you would not want to piss off and yet they have anyway. Good luck, you're going to need it.

Summary
Fray loves being a semi-pro fighter and free spirit. However, when a deadly faction begins abducting supernatural teens in the Blue Hills of North Carolina for excruciating experiments, she quickly learns there is more to life than glitzy opponents and late night trysts. Fray and a crew of unlikely allies must rescue the children before they are dissected alive. Being a leopard shapeshifter helps. Confronting personal prejudice and traversing feelings for a tempestuous ex do not mix. But Fray is willing to go all the way to stop her world from changing. That is, until the ultimate sacrifice forces her to realize just how overdue change is.

Her most shocking discovery: Everyone's human. At least a little...

The Good
I was actually pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed Frayed. In the novella we meet Fray, a leopard shapeshifter with an ingrained prejudice against vampires, werewolves, and other shapeshifters. It's how supernatural creatures live, hating those who are not their own but tolerating them only when they are helpful. But as Fray and vampire Haden Nash work together to find the many supernatural teens that have been kidnapped for nefarious reasons, Fray realizes it's time for every species to end this poorly reasoned animosity. Maybe if everyone would have just worked together in the first place, these horrible occurrences would have never come to be. Innocence would have never been taken and lives could have been saved.

I loved that supernatural social issues were so beautifully woven within the plot. It gave the story numerous layers that pulled me into these characters' lives more than I expected for a novella. But the main plot was fascinating on it's own. There was mystery, horror, and fast-paced action.

That's what will happen here. Yes it was a shifter/vamp story, but not typical. This was more about crossing lines and working together to get something accomplished. The only thing I didn't like is that the emotions and personalities were flat.

Very good book. Lots of action adventure heartache and joy crammed in it. The characters were strong the story line was very interesting. Just wish it was a little bit longer. A highly recommended book to read.

When local teenagers start disappearing from the various shifter communities, old rivalries get put on the back burner in order to stop this from continuing.

Fray is a leopard shifter and a semi-pro mixed martial arts fighter. To sum it up: she's quite the badass. Highly independent and extremely sarcastic I grew quite fond of Fray. After finding out that more teenagers are disappearing, her and her family realizes that someone needs to look into this to prevent any future kidnappings and it needs to be Fray. She teams up with a vampire/investigator to find out why these kidnappings are happening and who's responsible.

I really enjoyed this introduction novella. I think it presented a good picture of what's to be expected in this upcoming series. This has a surprisingly interesting plot with strong and likable characters. I also enjoyed the underlying story of overcoming deep-seated prejudices and learning how to overcome those challenges to complete the common goal. I think I would have enjoyed it a teensy bit more if it was longer and the author was able to dive a bit deeper in respects to world-building. Character development was spot on though. Recommended for you UF fans out there.

This book held more than a few surprises inside that I was not expecting. I think it is completely unique in its story, and I was turning pages as fast as I could to find out what would happen next.

See, first we have Fray, which is actually a nickname for a leopard shifter woman named Madison Lark. She is this bad*** semi-pro MMA fighter. Yep, a female MMA fighter. That's what initially was interested in this story. I love when a character is not something you normally see, especially when it is a woman who is breaking stereotypes. And Fray definitely lived up to that expectation. She is tough, strong, beautiful, and s*** is about to get real for her.

Kids have been disappearing from the shifter community. And here is something else I liked. Fray is leopard, but there are lion shifters, wolves, and vampires in this book. Even shadowshifters. The diversity was beyond awesome. Fray gets paired of up with Nash, a vampire. Vampires typically could not care less about the doings of shifters, but he's not completely heartless, ya know.

Actually, I really liked Nash a lot. He has a flirtatious nature, and a great sense of humor. I'm really hoping that he will be featured more in upcoming books. At first I thought he might be a potential romance for Fray, with all of his flirting. But that was before I met Blaire.

Blaire is the leader in training, as his dad is nearing death any day now. The guy has got a lot on his shoulders, and not the least of it is his on again/off again relationship with Fray. They have some really terrific scenes together, and he is another character I'd love to see more of.

And that's what is so great about this story, I could say that about practically all of the characters.
