Then, I got to the 57% mark, and something felt strange to me about the main character's actions.
However, the author turned it around again shortly after the 57% scare.
And then TOTALLY DELIVERED the most awesome story! I GOT Pride's feelings, impulses, deep-seated and primal responses to her world; Kalen knows how to SHARE the experience of what Pride's life is like, and that counts tremendously to me. Can I give 7 stars?
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.
Pride's nitty gritty point of view is mesmerizing. I loved every second that I spent inside her head. For the first part of the book she's more animal than human. Kalen does an amazing job of conveying how wild this seventeen year old wolf really is. Pride's running on pure survival instincts. I felt like I was right there beside her through every step of her refusal to be broken by her master. What a horrible life to be born into! Yet, somehow, Pride never looses hope. Such an unbreakable spirit! In the second half of the novel she becomes more human than she's ever been. It's an enlightening yet immensely scary process. Thank goodness for Logan!
The plot line of this book is pretty straight forward. Pride and Logan are running for their lives while leaning to trust each other because if they want to survive, they will need each other's help. The alpha male totally throws Pride off of her game. I liked how intuitive Logan is. Even though he's big and strong he's also capable of being equally as gentle and kind. He quickly realizes how broken Pride is and, as a result, handles her like you would a china doll. Logan also rebels against the norm. I really enjoyed his blatant disregard of werewolf stereotypes. He throws tradition into the wind and instead, does whatever it takes. Good for him! Pride's no ordinary girl and it'll take an extraordinary boy to win her over. Luckily for her, Logan's up to the task.
The majority of this novel is all about the characters but the ending is a shocker and leaves room for Kalen to expand Pride's universe by tenfold. Pride's Run is perfect for readers who prefer the animal side of the characters in shifter fiction. I look forward to seeing where Kalen takes us in Pride Unleashed.
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.
