Stray by Rachel Vincent

Stray

Rachel Vincent

You might expect the story of a female werecat desperate for independence to break the mould. But, if you exchange cats for mafiosi, what you have is a familiar story. Still, there are plenty of thrills along the way and intriguing descriptions of how cats would perceive the world if they had human intelligence. Oh, and plenty of sex and violence! One for ladettes?.

Extract

As children, humans learned to compromise, share and make friends. I learned to identify animals by scent and to stalk them without betraying my presence. While normal parents discussed political elections and spiking interest rates, mine discussed expanding territorial boundary lines and how harshly to deal with trespassers. Humans just didn't understand my childhood, so I generally avoided the subject altogether.
