As if all this wasnít overwhelming enough, her Pride has to deal with the outcome of Manxís trial and Maloneís continued attempt to overtake her fatherís leadership of the Territorial Council.
The pace of Prey is insane (in a totally good way) from the very beginning. Even though itís hard to imagine, this series keeps getting more and more intense. This fourth book in Vincentís series certainly doesnít pull any punches and leaves readers very emotionally involved in the story. As with the previous books in this series, readers are left very anxious for the next installment.
