Feral Pride by Cynthia Leitich Smith
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Shifters have been outed in the media when Kayla’s transformation to werecat is recorded and uploaded for everyone to see. She is now seen as a werebeast threat and is on the run with Yoshi, Clyde and Aimee. As if things couldn’t get any worse, a weresnake has kidnapped the governor of Texas and announced to the media that this is just the beginning. All werepeople are now at risk as law enforcement tries to round them up, corporations develop a shift-suppressing vaccine and an underground slave trade is uncovered. Do Clyde and his friends have the strength to overcome the obstacles put before them? Who can they trust and how far are they willing to go?
Feral Pride is the third and final book in the Feral series. This book picks up shortly after the ending of the second novel and I encourage readers to start at the beginning. Although Smith references people and events from the original series (Tantalize), this spin off series can still be enjoyed by itself. As a final book in a series I was pulled in by the quick plot twists and fast story progression. I do feel there were a lot of “lessons” thrown in as the characters were explaining different werepeople traits, but if that flaw is ignored Feral Pride is a very satisfying conclusion.
