Series: Wildcats #0.5, Shifters #6.5
Published by Rachel Vincent
This short story was previously in the anthology Chicks Kick But
It’s been more than four years since Abby Wade survived capture and torture by a quartet of rogue shifters. Back then she was a scared kid, just trying to survive.
Now Abby is all grown up, and if she’s learned anything from training with Faythe Sanders, the world’s first female Alpha, it’s that she can take care of herself—and anyone else who comes along. So when her college roommate is abducted from a campsite deep in the Appalachian woods, Abby knows exactly how to get her back…
The rules of the hunt are simple. Kill or be killed.
Abby Wade is not ready to die.
I’ve been a fan of Rachel Vincent’s Shifters series for a few years and was surprised I didn’t know about Hunt and the Wildcats series that follows! Hunt serves as a short bridge between the Shifters and Wildcats verse.
This is an action-packed novella, filled with some insight into Abby and a little in to Jace. It also serves as a set up for the Jace/Abby focused story Lion’s Share. The plot is pretty simple – Abby and several friends go camping only to have the camping trip turn into a hunting trip, where several men seem to know all about shifters. Vincent’s voice is as clear as ever and quickly propels you into the story. Even those unfamiliar with the Shifters series will find something in this short little prequel.
While I’m not sure how much I’ll enjoy Wildcats series – as Vincent takes a turn from urban fantasy to paranormal romance, I’ll definitely have to follow along for now to get my Shifters fix. Recommended for those that have read Vincent’s other work, but also for those that like urban fantasy/action series!
